It’s clear that combining millennials’ love of technology with their affinity for loyalty schemes is something that businesses should take into account – indicating the clear importance of apps. According to Aruba, 66.3% of millennials indicate that they are more likely to shop from stores where they are part of a loyalty program. Coupled with the fact that 92% of millennials own smartphones, this creates a huge opportunity for businesses to utilise app technology effectively.
It’s not just millennials that the market can be targeting – even 30% of members of the ‘Silent Generation’, ie those born in 1946 or earlier, own a smartphone, meaning loyalty schemes are not merely restricted to the uber-savvy younger generation. In between comes Generation X (1965-1980) at 85%, and Baby Boomers (1946-1964) with 67% owning smartphones. All in all, it’s safe to say that apps are the way forward with many aspects of brand loyalty. Though some owners of smartphones might do little more with their device than message friends and take selfies, the vast majority will use them to their full advantage – including enrolling in loyalty schemes.
