    • Do you want them to buy more often?
    • Do you want them to buy a new product or specific product?
  • Get more referrals?
  • Motivate a prospect to book an appointment with you?
  • Recruiting goals?
    • Book an interview with you or sign a contract with you?
  • Employee goals?
    • Retain employees by rewarding them on their anniversary so that they know you appreciate them.

    • Create a custom reward website or marketing piece to communicate your incentive program. Make it fun, engaging, gets noticed and
    • Promote it everywhere! Online, offline, wherever it is appropriate to promote it, right down to your email signature. If that’s appropriate for it.
