As brands contend with rising media costs, changing consumer behavior, and, for some, lackluster sales results, they continue to invest in consumer loyalty programs and technology solutions to help them engage and retain consumers. In fact, 53% of B2C marketing decision-makers plan to increase their spend on loyalty technology this year. But economic uncertainty adds pressure to demonstrate profitability, which requires:

    • A strategy that aligns with the brand’s enterprise goals.
    • A compelling and appropriate value exchange.
    • A technology solution that effectively and efficiently supports the program, fits into the brand’s martech ecosystem, and enables agility as brand and customer needs change.
