Everyone likes to get something for nothing. Many businesses realize that this drive for free things can be used as an effective marketing strategy. This is where the punch card comes in to play. Punch cards are little pieces of paper that keep track of how often a customer buys something from a company. When they meet a quota of punches, they receive a free item or free services. Free items can range from free food to free rounds of golf. Free services range from manicures, haircuts to dog grooming. Of course, punch cards aren't limited to the products and services listed above! If you are a business owner, you may have a product or service that can benefit from the use of a punch card.
Perhaps the most popular type of punch card is the free food punch card. Restaurants, fast foods stands and food carts are the usual hosts for free food punch cards, but a lot of other types of companies can benefit from offering a free food punch card. For example, a check cashing company can offer a punch card that exchanges a gift certificate for a free dinner at a local restaurant for cashing X number of checks. These punch cards are very cost effective at generating repeat business, and that is why they are so popular with the food industry.
Another type of punch card that you can offer to your customers is a free merchandise punch card. You can offer a promotional hat, t-shirt or jacket after your customers complete their punch card, or you can offer them free merchandise from your regular stock. The key to making your business cards work is to offer merchandise that is enticing to your customer base, but inexpensive enough that your company can comp the costs.
Free Rounds of Golf
Miniature golf courses and traditional golf courses can also benefit from a punch card program. These programs can offer a free round of gold, a buy one round get one round free offer, or a percentage off a larger golf package. In addition to implementing a 'free round of golf' punch card program, golf courses can also benefit from free merchandise and free food punch card programs. These alternative punch card programs can be used to entice your golfers to use the other services offered by your golf course, such as your concession stand, gift shop or your golf education services.
The fourth type of punch card program that you can implement is a free service punch card. These 4 color business cards are designed for service businesses. They can be a great way to promote repeat business for beauty salons, spas, massage therapists, design services and printers, just to name a few.
