    Hi – I’m looking for an electronic alternative to paper coffee cards. Our business has been trialling the Rewardle program for the last 18 months (free of charge) however the time has come to sign up to monthly fees and we don’t feel that it’s value for money. Due to our customer base (older, less engaged with social media, infrequent use of email, smartphoneless etc), we’re essentially using the system as an electronic form of loyalty card – specifically, buy 10, get one free.

    Does anyone use a digital program that’s affordable? We like the aspect of simply swiping the QR code on the card to the tablet and having the points recorded but for us, it’s not worth paying almost $100 a month. Any suggestions would be most welcome :)

    If your customer base is older, why move to digital at all?

    If the paper card is working for you, your customers like it, and it’s being used, I’d stick with what you have!!

    My uncle runs a printing factory and specialises in loyalty and membership cards both paper and plastic. He came to me to ask if I could create a simple program to allow small businesses to track their customers loyalty points.

    Like hotpies mentioned I couldn’t find a way to price it low enough to be attractive to small business and at the same time make it worth while building it. I thought about making it a free product and only charging for peripheral services like sending out promotion emails to the customer base.

    If anyone has any ideas I would be interested in what they think.

    Free sounds great as a lead magnet to a million upsells!

    For example, you could set up sms promotions, set up online booking and payment systems are 2 to come to mind off the top of my head.

    Hi Wayne,

    I’ve just launched what you’ve described above. I’m in New Zealand but am definitely keen to get over into OZ. Have a look at http://www.lylty.co.nz and see what you think.

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the welcome.

    I’ve been live for just over a month, have around 15 merchants signed up to the app, with more interest coming in regularly. Not bad as I live 2 hours north of Auckland, and only 56,000 people. Good place to prove my concept though before leaping in to the bigger ponds and coming over the ditch.

    This story ran in the local paper and is a good read.

    Cheers.

    As a user StampMe seems to work well. But as someone else said, if many of your customers don’t have smart phones, you’re better off sticking with something they can use. Rewardle or even going old school and having business card size pieces of cardboard.

    Hi Paul,

    I’m searching for a way of rewarding my clients that purchase a certain amount of hours off me.

    As I can’t download it in Australia (searched Google Play) do you have a youtube video of it in action?
