Due to the emerging and improved technology in retaining the loyal customers, customer loyalty programs are becoming extremely popular among retailers. Most of the retailers are using loyalty programs at a very basic level as these loyalty schemes take many forms such as rewards cards and pay-for-membership cards for stores. Such loyalty program/schemes can be extremely beneficial in many ways, like helping a retailer to do a market research, set different pricing strategies, and decide whether and where to open new branches/stores. An increasing number of retailers are opting for the customer loyalty programs, but many of these do not provide quality equally. Such programs/schemes more often fail and the some bear this out.
On the other side, if a customer joins these loyalty schemes, he will have a wallet full of cards. And, when everyone will be having one card, then prices are increased by the companies to cover the costs of the discounts (like pizza coupons, nobody pays retail for pizza etc). Thus, a customer asks for only a discount and refuses to carry a pocket full of cards and pays more.
Considering the above case, what do you think that who is the real beneficiary of such programs; Customer or Business? Support your position with at least three arguments?
who is beneficiary Customer or Business
plzzz discuss about this case..?
According to above scenario the only beneficiary are the business class either its the retailer or the companies which provide the supply of goods to the retailer who further play with such schemes
following are the three arguments in this regard
1)Firstly the retailers add such discount schemes on such goods or supplies which are rarely bought or to boost their business or to attract custom.
2) Secondly retailers put discount for some days to soar out business as many of the good not sold are the loss for them.
3) thirdly due to robust trend of fashion in business industry companies accelerate their product demand by lowering the cost of goods
