Pret's genius continues, makes the coffee lottery official

Pret-a-Manger created a lot of buzz on social media in 2015 with its mysterious and seemingly-unofficial free coffee giveaways.

If you were a regular at a particular store, or if a barista simply liked your face, you may have received a free coffee.

Many people on Twitter took this pretty seriously, seeing the gesture as affirmation of their good looks or friendly manner (see tweets below). 

Well, now Pret is making this official and has added a twist that could turn out to be the most genius piece of marketing strategy of the year.

Building brand loyalty in the next generation of commerce

Believe it or not, a 16-year-old and his or her 56-year-old father are part of the same generation.

This generation isn’t defined by age. Rather, its members share the same attitude towards how to apply digital technology to their most mundane, everyday tasks – from finding a parking spot or the latest news headlines, to their food orders and package deliveries.

What really stands out is their shared view on shopping and commerce. They prioritize convenience and value an experience that extends far beyond the traditional path to purchase.

Alongside deflation, quarterly measures of retail activity have been growing for four years.

What is customer experience management (CEM) and why should you be focusing on it?

It is my job to explain in the simplest terms certain digital marketing phrases that may seem confusing, misappropriated or darn well unwieldy.

Today we’ll be taking a look at the terms customer experience (CX) and customer experience management (CEM), phrases that in our increasingly consumer-focused and connection-based economy have risen to the top of every business’s agenda.

cash free buses in London

Payment is all about convenience: where does that leave the mobile?

Payment is kicking off again.

London buses are now cashless. CaixaBank and Barclaycard have both launched contactless payment wristbands.

This begs the question – can mobile muscle in further on in-store payment and loyalty, or is the opportunity disappearing?

Start Me Up! Tracking in-venue engagement with SwipeStation

Measuring engagement in venues is tough, especially when they're not ticketed. Think your local pub for example.

This week I caught up with Sam Fresco, co-founder and director of SwipeStation, which allows for advertising and vouchering from a terminal in-venue.

Fresco launched the start-up at 23, following previous roles at Top 100 digital agency Clock. I asked him about the product and his journey.

Three game mechanics you should borrow from Candy Crush

Game mechanics are the building blocks of a successful gamification strategy.

These elements make the experience engaging and fun for the consumer. Points, badges and leaderboards are the go-to mechanics marketers often use to make their programs more engaging, but the mechanics marketers can tap go beyond PBLs (as they’re called among game designers). 

Candy Crush, the social game that is more popular than every other game on Facebook, uses a long list of mechanics to create motivating and addictive experience for the user.

And there are a number of lessons marketers can learn from the torrid success of Candy Crush.

How marketers can drive engagement at every phase of the purchase cycle

It’s not just the moment of purchase that matters. To successfully build customer loyalty requires fresh marketing strategies at every phase of the purchase cycle: before, during, and after.

Before deciding to spend their hard-earned money with your brand, consumers receive countless messages that detail product announcements and ways to save money. To break through this noise, a streamlined and efficient engagement strategy is critical.

At the time of purchase, on the other hand, with consumers facing options from dozens of competitors, brands must change the shopping game to aid consumers in making an educated buying decision.

Finally, after a purchase is made, your brand has a choice of either allowing the customer to walk away in anonymity or continue the conversation by creating an identified and meaningful ongoing relationship.
