Loyalty schemes are one of the best ways to build a strong hub of repeat customers and are a great way to influence their buying behaviour. We can provide the right loyalty solution for your organisation thanks to our team at Universal Smart Cards having worked with a number of retailers and specialist consultants on tailored loyalty schemes over the years.
Why Use a Loyalty Scheme?
Loyalty schemes are a great way to offer your customers rewards and incentives, whilst increasing revenues in your business. Below are the top three reasons we believe are key drivers for offering your customers a loyalty scheme.
Loyalty programs have long been recognised as a key way to boost profits. Keeping this in mind, attracting new customers is often much more costly than retaining existing ones. By offering customers the opportunity of reward points that can be exchanged for store credits, discounts or other benefits, you encourage them to return to your store and spend more whilst they are there! This in turn means higher sales and ultimately more profit.
Happy customers are one of the best way to promote your brand through referrals. Not only does this cost little to do, it is probably the most trusted method when it comes to the consumer. If a customer recommends your business to a friend or family member they are much more likely to buy your products or services.
Vital Market Research
Introducing a loyalty scheme gives you accurate customer data. By recording information such as customer demographics and buying behaviour you can develop a strategy that encourages optimal buying behaviour. To do this you need to understand what triggers your audience to purchase and by offering loyalty incentives you will begin to see exactly what fuels your customers to return.
Take a look below at the solutions we have to help you in implementing a new loyalty scheme or supporting your existing system.
Loyalty cards are the classic way to promote your brand and drive consumer engagement. We can offer a wide range of card services; from design, to manufacture. We can support existing card options including features such as magstripes and help support your move to new technologies such as contactless. As well as this we offer a wide range of features to help keep your cards secure.
The small and mighty fob… Our fobs are the ideal way to ensure customers always have their loyalty card to hand. This compact alternative to a card can be attached to key, kept in a wallet or even behind a mobile phone case. Ensure your customers always have their account on them with these handy fobs.

“We have been purchasing printed loyalty and gift cards from Universal for a few years and always receive a fantastic service. The cards look great and the turnaround time is very good!
We often have very specific requests regarding numbering and colours and this has never been an issue, which is very refreshing, as we know that our customers will receive cards that look great, meaning that they will come back for more.
Our account manager is the lovely Joanna Smith, who is always helpful and keeps us updated on delivery times etc. She is amazingly organised, which means we know we can relax and just wait for the cards to arrive.
The whole service is great from start to finish”
