DECEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER
‘Ah, the long tail of retail still wags!’ Chitti would have said in 2.0. The market is hurtling towards the end of another holiday season, which means that shoppers have one final lap of ‘spending act’ left in them. But it is Christmas season we are talking about, not to forget the New Year lurking in the corner. And if the gifting trend so far is anything to go by, we are in for another bullish cycle. The challenge before you as a retail is to jump on this bandwagon and set those cash registers of yours ringing. How do you make of every shopper a sure-shot customer? You provide them gifts 2.0: gift cards. Gift cards are increasingly being seen as personal budgetary tools by customers. They allow shoppers to avail various offers, and this provides you an oppurtunity to amass customers, well, provided if you have a gift card program. This month we worked with various leading brands to launch their gift card programs.
Physical gift cards...with QR codes.
Our gift card program for Frasers Property Mall in Singapore, is a bit different. It issues physical gift cards, but with QR codes on them. What this means is that the gift cards can either be redeemed instantly at any of their outlets spread across Singapore, such as Anchorpoint, China Square Central, Eastpoint Mail etc., or be QR-scanned & stored in their mobile app and redeemed later. And it worked! The program was powered by QwikGifTSx. QwikGifTSx can launch physical gift cards, as well as digital ones that can be delivered through email or even SMS. Let us know if you are interested in launching your own promotions program.
