As a company, perhaps you are considering implementing an incentive program within your organization. Be it a group incentive travel program, a points based loyalty program (such as HMI's OnDemand Award Program) or a short term promotion, your biggest concern is most likely, “Will it work?” Before making any sort of budgetary commitment, you want to be sure that your resources are going to be put to good use. You will be expected to present clear objectives, initiatives, and ROI metrics.

When a distributor needed a strategy that would consolidate promotions while further penetrating mid-sized customers, we responded by recommending and then ultimately implementing a points-based rewards program.
Their overall objective started with a question: How do you motivate mid-level dealers who don't typically qualify for a group trip, but who still offer the potential for significant gains in discretionary purchases? The challenge at this point was engaging a customer base that had become distracted by too many messages and too many promotions being run simultaneously. Sound familiar?
