Frequent Buyer Cards????
I'd like to try something like this for my buyers that buyer my "not so expensive" items i.e. cupcakes, cookies, brownies.
I've been thinking about it, but haven't got the time for the details.
I've done these for about 2 years. It's a plastic punch card with 8 spaces on it and then I give them a free order (up to a certain value or the maximum off a bigger order) on the 9th order. I have had at 20 customers get the free order, and one lady has gotten 2! It's also like giving them a business card that they are guaranteed to keep longer than usual. I got a funky punch in the scrapbooking department so they can't just fill it up themselves. It has worked well for me, but everyone's clients are different.
You could always use a unique stamp too instead of a punch. I always keep card that are frequent buyer card longer then I would a normal business card. Sounds like a great idea!
I have a card for coffee (I serve lattes, cappuccinos, etc). I had a stamp made.
Having a punch card that doubles as a business card sounds like a brilliant idea, but there are always those people with no integrity that will cheat their way into a premature freebie. Maybe keeping a spreadsheet with customer names and # of purchases, doing the "punching" behind the scenes in your records and providing frequent buyer discounts without the card?
