Differentiating your brand in such a crowded space is not only critical, but also more difficult than ever.

A retail loyalty program can be an effective way to create competitive advantage by reducing customers’ likelihood to switch stores. Indeed, more than seven in 10 loyalty-program participants in Nielsen’s Global Loyalty-Sentiment Survey (72%) somewhat or strongly agree that, all other factors equal, they will buy from a retailer with a loyalty program over one without. Loyalty programs can also help drive more frequent visits and heavier purchasing.
