6 ways to increase footfall in your business with Mi Rewards

As a business owner, being a part of Mi Rewards just makes sense. Not only is it free and easy for businesses but it encourages customers to shop locally and loyally. When faced with a choice of which café to go into for their lunch, it’s the one where they can earn points that Mi Rewards customers will choose. Being a Mi Rewards registered business means more customers through your doors, more regularly. But there’s even more you can do to drive footfall to your business through Mi Rewards.

 Optimise your listing

When customers register with Mi Rewards, one of the first things they’ll do is look to see where they can earn points locally. Being a part of Mi Rewards can be a nudge towards trying brand new businesses. Take the time to optimise your listing with Mi Rewards, to tell customers a little bit about your business and what you offer, and encourage them to give you a try.

Promote the local and national prizes

Every 10 points earned through Mi Rewards is an entry into a prize draw to win both local and national prizes. The local prize is a unique taste of local life, like show tickets for a venue near you, whilst the national prize includes high value items like an Ooni pizza oven or a Lay-Z-Spa. Be sure to tell people that they could win these awesome prizes just for shopping with you.

Use the free assets

Remember that customers are making choices about where to spend each and every day. Display the Mi Rewards marketing materials in your business. Use the free social media assets on your social channels. Reminding customers that you’re part of Mi Rewards, and that they can earn points with you, will bring more footfall in your direction.

Set up you own business prize!

A new feature with Mi Rewards is the ability to add your own business level prizes to reward customers for spending directly with you. Business level prizes work alongside the local and national prizes, as an extra incentive. You can set the parameters for the prize, such as how many points make an entry into the prize draw, and the dates for the prize draw. This is ideal for promoting new products, or driving footfall during a specific period.
