1. First things first- Understand your customers’ behavioural journey

The very first step to gear up for festive season is to understand customers as their thoughts on ‘touch and feel’ factor while shopping have taken a U-turn given the current times, and how. A well-optimized customer experience is valuable for generating revenue and increasing customer retention.
Invest in an intelligent toolkit (Customer data platform) to observe consumers data, do behavioural segmentation to dig deeper into customer preferences and gain insights, allowing for enhancements.
Customer data platform toolkit allows retailers to access Single View of Customers to track their buying history, preferences, point/ coupon redemption on one dashboard.
By implementing the toolkit, you can understand your customers better and act in accordance.

2. Loyalty programs- an excellent way to retain your best customers

”A loyal customer doesn't consider alternatives. He won't mind paying premium for his valued loyalty.”
As per an observation from Consumer Index Reset study by Easyrewardz: There is 25% higher representation of customers who are associated with brands for more than a year visiting to the stores as compared to the rest.
One of the best ways to keep customers coming back is to reward them. Invest in a Loyalty program that provides exclusive benefits.
This is the time to give special offers and discounts to retain your existing customer base and attract new customers.
