Our discussions with media will highlight Kobie's loyalty expertise, specifically focused on Kobie's workshop presentation and the need for airlines create more personalized, interactive and relevant rewards, while modelling themselves after savvy retailers. Airlines need to embrace a host of non-mileage-related rewards that drive customer experience and promote brand loyalty, and they need to embrace the ways in which new technology, specifically mobile, can help connect with passengers via multiple touchpoints, creating a more seamless and efficient omnichannel loyalty experience. The end result: drive customer engagement, increase the number of opportunities to reach and understand passengers, and add more value to improve the passenger experience.
- Research shows that on average, the loyalty program membership makes up 35% of a companys total customer base. And, of that 35% -- approximately one-third redeem rewards.
- The Number of Smartphone users worldwide is predicted to exceed 1 billion by 2014 (Parks Associates, 2010)and more than 15% of travelers who book a flight 24 hours or less in advance do so via mobile. Both stats show how smartphones have given new power to the "on-the-go" traveler in recent years.
- 74% of online retailers have already, or are currently, developing a mobile strategy (Forrester).
- Airlines across the globe need to follow the lead of the retail industry to expand their loyalty offerings, improve customer experience and generate new revenue streams.
