Our latest report explores the shift from points schemes to brand passports

In a marketplace increasingly defined by product commoditization and choice, brands and retailers can no longer focus solely on building transactional relationships with their customers. Our research shows that consumers desire an experience that is more valuable and more meaningful.

As a response, we’re witnessing a new way of thinking about loyalty that shifts the conversation away from points acquisition into access to a broader ecosystem. PSFK’s analysis uncovered innovative new approaches to loyalty that not only enable members to earn rewards, but also invite them into the larger world of the brand, empowering them with key tools across their journey, adding value through exclusive experiences and services and rewarding them for mutually beneficial behaviors like social shares.
