Delta Airlines and Chick-fil-a Sponsor Indiana Rewards Program

Indiana University partners with some big sponsors for the Crimson Guard Rewards program, including Delta Airlines and Chick-Fil-A. These sponsors help Indiana give great prizes to the students while cutting costs to Crimson Guard Rewards.

One common goal is to make sure our students are rewarded for coming out to athletics events. By working together [with our sponsors] and the student rewards program we accomplish that.Laura Kneiss, Crimson Guard Director

Indiana attracted Delta Airlines as a sponsor because they were looking to reach the student population. The appeal of nearly 4,000 student rewards members convinced Delta Airlines to partner with Crimson Guard Rewards. / continue reading

Fans earn points to redeem these prizes by attending Admirals games and following the Admiral’s social media. “[Admiral Rewards] is easy to use, is time sensitive and encourages fans to follow social media,” Larson said.

One of the advantages of Admiral Rewards is the ability to measure social engagement, Larson said. With this ability, the Admirals have measured an increase in fan interaction with their social media. For instance, the Admirals have seen triple the number of retweets on Twitter since establishing Admiral Rewards, Larson said. / continue reading

Membership Levels – New in FanMaker 3!

The new membership levels feature automatically ranks and groups fans into different levels of status. Setup levels at various point thresholds and fans will be automatically assigned when they qualify. Levels have names and colors you choose and there is no limit to the quantity. A member’s rank and level is re-evaluated every time they earn points, and even falls when points expire and a threshold is no longer met.

level profile

Similar to frequent flyer miles, membership levels give your fans something to work towards, and gives you more promotion and segmentation options. For example, you can offer certain benefits, or discounts exclusive to higher levels. A simple graph, like the one shown below, displays current status and level structure.

App Update 3.4 Brings Prize Store Filtering and Activity Feed Improvements

This weekend we released version 3.4 of the mobile apps featuring some often requested additions. The mobile prize store now has filtering and sorting. Members can choose to show all items, just auctions, or just contests. In addition the order of prize store items can be toggled from highest to lowest or lowest to highest point cost. If your prize store does not have any active contest or auctions, these options disappear.

Next up we made a couple improvements to the activity feed. Now members can “pull down to refresh” the feed. Also when a member scrolls to the end of the list of activities it will load in more, providing an infinite scroll all the way back to the first activity they completed for points.

Lastly we fixed a bug that stopped the activity feed from updating for some members and a bug that kept some members from being able to see micro survey questions.

Version 3.4 is now available in the Apple app store and the Google Play store for all teams!

6 Tips – How Alabama Crafts Crimson Tide Rewards Emails

When sending email to promote your loyalty/rewards program there are some tried and true ways to increase its effectiveness. Alabama’s Crimson Tide Rewards does a fantastic job with their monthly update emails, so let’s go through the anatomy of a great promotional email:

1. Give Away a Brand New Car

Just kidding! You don’t need to give away a brand new Toyota Rav4 like Alabama, but you should try filling the marquee position of your email with a  prize. Fans want to know what is in it for them, so featuring a once-in-a-lifetime experience or one of your awesome prizes is a great way to grab their attention. Optionally, if you have recently handed out a large prize like Alabama did, showing the winner accepting or enjoying the prize will make rewards seem achievable for the average fan.

Houston Dynamo Engage Fans and Sponsors with Custom Rewards and FanMaker Beacons

Houston Dynamo and Major League Soccer fans around the country come as loyal and rabid as any. With success on the field in the form of two MLS Cup victories, Houston Dynamo are now looking to connect with their fans a different level off the field with FanMaker’s rewards program.

Houston Dynamo’s rewards page, Dynamo Custom Rewards, is a fan loyalty hub for those looking to stay “Forever Orange.” Using a unique, customizable platform, Dynamo can now reward fans for their loyalty to the club.

We believe that by offering point earning opportunities for things we want our members to do, such as purchasing specific ticket packages, engaging socially, participating in events, it will encourage them to do these things and do them more often.Kimberly Sutton, Senior Service Specialist of the Houston Dynamo
