Marketing Restaurant owners and managers have increasingly found that gift and loyalty card programs can bring in new customers and business. Gift cards are be.ing .mon gifts and each customer that visits after receiving a gift card is a potential returning guest. Loyalty cards can be tied to discounts or rewards for frequent visits and encourage repeat visits. If you are starting a new gift or loyalty card program, there are steps you can take to maximize the new business that they can bring in for your restaurant. Create Your Gift or Loyalty Card Program The first step to attracting new customers is deciding when and how to implement your gift card and loyalty card programs. Decide what types of cards you want to implement and how they will be advertised to your customers. You will also need software to track your gift or loyalty card program. Make sure that your system has the ability to track your program. If you don’t have a system in place, contact your POS Software representative to inquire into the possibility of adding a module to support your card program. Different software .panies treat this capability differently and they may charge for the tracking functionality. It’s best to explore and discover the functionality of your software prior to ordering gift or loyalty cards. Create a Gift Card Package Gift cards sell better if they are displayed prominently and professionally. Make sure your cards are easily noticed by your customers by using acrylic displays and sales. Display cards near the register or in prominent positions. Advertise in waiting areas or by the front door that gift cards are available for purchase. Make it as easy as possible for your customers to find and purchase your cards. Create a Lasting Impression What causes some gift cards to outsell others by as much as 2 to 1? The answer is custom artwork! A plain card does not attract attention and may not appear to be a pleasing gift. Creating a well thought out layout and design will result in higher sales. Creating your card does not have to be hard or expensive.
