While the idea of giving cash-back is nothing new, the hype around cryptocurrency has customers willing to accept crypto rather than cashback.
A recent survey found that 44% of Americans are interested in receiving cryptocurrency such as Ethereum or Bitcoin instead of cash.
Starbucks, Whole Foods, and Nordstroms are among some of the brands that are already accepting cryptocurrency for purchases.
With almost half of Americans interested, the opportunities to implement cryptocurrency into rewards programs are endless. As more and more crypto becomes available with different values and meanings associated with them, there is bound to be an option for every shopper.
Data vs. experience
For decades now, companies have used their experience and insights on how their business works to develop a strategy for the future.
The pandemic quickly showed us that past experience went out the door when everything in the retail world became so far from normal –This is where data came to save the day.
Retail data allowed retailers to see new trends in the shopping experience and helped retailers find the best way to implement new technology.
But with great power comes great responsibility. Data privacy is something that many people take very seriously and can greatly impact their brand loyalty.
Clearly outlining your privacy agreement and what data you do and don’t track can make the difference between a one-time buyer and a lifetime customer.
A look forward
We have reached a time within the year where both analysts and retailers are very optimistic about the future for big-ticket retailers.
While at one point the National Retail Federation predicted retail growth to reach around 6.5%, the NRF now expects retail to grow between 10.5% and 13.5% by the end of the year.
This new projection of over 10% growth is estimated to total between $4.44 trillion to $4.56 trillion.
The updated projection was based on new vaccination numbers, re-opening of stores across the country, and consumers’ built-up demand after a locked-down year.
