What are experiential rewards?
There are two kinds of experiential rewards:
Experiential rewards are events where customers are encouraged to try new things. These experiences include food tasting, product testing, and other activities where customers may be given something for free. The goal is to encourage them to come back and purchase from you again.
This is a marketing and customer experience use of experiential rewards, which has been around since the early 1900s when the first department stores began giving away samples of products as part of their sales strategy.
The other type of experiential reward is one where you are offering a memorable experience instead of something tangible like merchandise. Examples include vacations, concerts, shows, tours, excursions, sporting events, attractions, theme parks, and so on.
Why are experiential rewards effective?
They are effective because they are memorable and emotional, and they can be more environmentally friendly, more educational, more inspirational, and more appealing than other types of rewards.
The pandemic caused a shift in the mindset of many people. They have realized that they have one life to live and they are going to live it fully. An experiential reward is going to help them achieve this goal.
The pandemic also caused a pent-up demand for exploration and experiences. Travel is making a comeback and people are eager to get out and enjoy themselves again.
Supply change issues have caused huge issues for manufacturers and retailers alike. A segment of the population has awakened to the understanding that they don't need as much stuff as they once thought they needed.
And climate change and social justice are huge issues too, with more people realizing that their buying habits are contributing to the issue.
In other words, people are saying "give me great experiences" instead of more stuff that clutters my home, and contributes to the major global issues.
Who should be using experiential rewards?
Any business or organization should consider using experiential rewards. It's a proven way to increase brand loyalty, improve customer service, build relationships, and grow your business.
It's also a great way to reward your employees while being socially and environmentally responsible.
A study by Harris Group found that 72 percent of millennials prefer to spend more money on experiences than on material things.
