Yesterday I saw this sign in a food shop in Helsinki. The owner is rewarding people who promote his shop by giving them a small discount.
It seems that Kellogs are also playing with this idea, with people able to pay for cereal with a tweet.
I said a while back that the most valuable customers are not always the ones who spend the most, but can be the ones who promote you the most.
The best CRM database systems in the future will measure transaction activity and social activity, and reward you for both. I don’t really know anyone who is really nailing this yet. Do you?
