Loyalty scheme statements employ transpromo

Monday, January 12, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

(January 08, 2009) The latest study from direct communications specialist GI Direct has found that 14% of the UK's top 100 loyalty schemes now print targeted 'transpromo' adverts in their loyalty statement 'white space'.

There is a real and immediate transpromo opportunity in the loyalty sector as it does not suffer from the strict boundaries of regulatory compliance in the finance sector or the concerns of industries like energy, mobile phone, ISP, mail order, where small hiccups in billing runs can have a massive effect on cash flow.

Of the schemes studied, the Music/Entertainment, Mobile Phone & Electronics, and Retail industries had the strongest transpromo initiatives in place. With the benefit of repeat customers and successful points-based loyalty schemes, companies have ample opportunity to insert targeted advertising onto their loyalty statements.

The least advanced in loyalty scheme transpromo were credit card issuers, Hotels & Catering and Travel/Travel Agency companies.

Patrick Headley, Sales and Marketing Director, GI Direct, comments: "As pressure is mounting on marketers to achieve improved return on marketing investment in 2009 harnessing transpromo for cross sales, or to subsidise scheme costs through third party revenue, is turning into a commercial imperative. Thanks to low-cost, high-speed, good quality, variable colour technology is now allowing marketers to achieve creative impact within the context of transpromo and white space management."
