In an upcoming exploration of the potential influence of E-Gift cards on customer loyalty and engagement, esteemed loyalty marketing experts Mark Johnson, CEO and President of Loyalty 360, and Randy Fox, Managing Director at FuzeBuy, will discuss the changing landscape of e-gifting and loyalty programs. Scheduled to air July 7, 2012 on Fox Business Network.

Mark Johnson, provides an overview of the challenges of running a loyalty program today sharing, “loyalty programs are about driving behavior, and truly driving behavior is a very detailed and complex process“¦ You have to truly understand and listen to your customers to drive sustainable behavioral change, and its very challenging right now for retailers, banks, and other entities to do that.”

A key focus for FuzeBuy is helping clients increase gift card sales by allowing companies to sell e-Gift cards, as well as physical gifts and retail items through online and mobile shopping portals. These portals also allow clients to grow sales by implementing and measuring strategic promotions that drive traffic and lift gift card sales when needed most. According to FuzeBuy research 70% of consumers report wanting virtual gift cards either in their email or on their mobile phone. The segment takes a look at how TopGolf has partnered with FuzeBuy to increase sales and improve customer experience through E-Gift Card offers.

The conversation continues with Randy Fox providing insights on how the use of emerging technologies, such as e-gift cards & mobile, change customer behavior and can be used as part of an engagement strategy. Randy Fox explains that brands can use e-gift cards, “as a thank you, an immediate win back for a certain behavior, bringing back a consumer they haven´t seen and instantly touching them based on something that they did or didn´t do.”

This edition of 21st Century Business Series reflects on how both retailers and consumers are benefitting from the latest loyalty technologies.
