If your loyalty program isn’t making the grade, and you’re looking for ways to upgrade, it can be challenging to even know where to start. There are many ways to measure the success of your loyalty program — from enrollment to transactions to leveraging influencers.

So, let’s start at the beginning — enrollment — and talk about how to best measure the effectiveness of your loyalty program enrollment process.

Keep Sign-up Quick and Easy

The first step in any successful loyalty program is attracting more members and the easiest way to do that is to make the enrollment process simple. If your sign-up process requires more than six fields, your conversion rates on sign up will be lower than if you had a simpler process. Loyalty programs that allow members to sign up quickly, in multiple ways, including in-store, online, on mobile and via SMS text are going to lead the pack in growing a following.

Allow for Multiple Touchpoints

The best case enrollment scenario will vary from customer to customer. Where one may dread enrolling in store at a POS, others might find it convenient. So make sure you have multiple options in multiple ways, including in-store, online, on mobile and via SMS text to suit all of your customers’ preferences. Consider having kiosks and tablets available for enrollment in store and make certain enrolling online or in-app is a breeze.

Make It Obvious (and Compliant)

Design that doesn’t require consumers to jump through hoops to register is an important piece of encouraging enrollment. No one wants to go hunting for registration and more importantly, they likely won’t. Show relevant links to terms of service and other sign-up information right on the sign-up page. This is especially important to comply with the recently implemented EU GDPR regulations. If your brand is in a regulated industry or may attract minors, then insert an “age-gate” on your sign up page to discourage minors from signing up.
