Loyalty-as-a-Service (LaaS) is just FinTech speak for Loyalty





The world of FinTech is consumed with acronyms. Many as tagged with “as-a-Service” as if the additional definitives give weight to the adjective.

In today’s highly competitive and crowded FinTech environment, customer loyalty is an invaluable, almost intangible absolute. Companies must work harder and sharper to engage and retain them [the customer]. With Loyalty-as-a-Service (LaaS), maintaining and retaining their customer base is founded on strategic customer engagement, focusing on constructing long-term relationships using innovation and personalization. 

LaaS achieves this goal by creating personalized programs offering exclusive offers, personalized experiences, and tangible rewards. 

The benefits of LaaS

The clear strategies of LaaS are founded on exclusivity, personalization, and tangibility. These emotive{s} let the company cultivate a sense of community around their brand, making it more likely than not that customers will return and recommend their products and services to others.

LaaS also helps companies gather (in) valuable data about their customers, such as their buying habits, interests, and preferences, information used to individualize marketing campaigns and promotions that amplify their brand- engagement.

Lastly, LaaS can assist businesses in differentiating themselves from their competitors by offering unique rewards and experiences, ensuring that companies stand out in a crowded marketplace, and creating a solid brand identity that resonates with customers.

How to implement a LaaS strategy

Implementing a LaaS strategy requires careful planning to execute the plan successfully. Here are some steps that businesses can take to create successful loyalty programs.

  • Define your goals:

Start by defining the purposes of the loyalty program. Ask yourself questions such as “What do you want to achieve?”, or

“Do you want to increase customer retention, drive more sales, or collect (in) valuable data about your customers?”

Defining clear goals will help you design a specific program for you and your customer.

  • Choose your rewards:

Decide on the rewards that you want to offer your client. These incentives could include discounts, free products and/ or services, exclusive event access, or personalized experiences. Ensure the company’s rewards align with the brands’ values, and resonate with your target audience.

  • Design your program.

Once your goals and rewards have been defined, it is time to design the program itself. This process includes deciding on the program’s structure (is it point-based or tier-based?), developing the user interface for customers to access their rewards quickly, and creating the rules for earning and redeeming the rewards. 

  • Launch and promote:

After designing the program, it is time to launch and promote it to your customers. Utilize a multi-channel approach to reach your target audience, including e-mail marketing, in-store signage, and/ or social media platforms like Instagram, Meta, TikTok, and/ or YouTube. Ensure you succinctly communicate the program’s benefits while frequently engaging with your client base.

  • Measure and refine.

Finally, tracking and measuring your loyalty program’s success, subsequently refining it is integral. Use data analytics to track customer engagement and adjust accordingly to optimize your results.
