Gifting still has the same purpose—to forge better relationships.

Rewards and gifts have brought results because research calls out the users’ behavior as a strong deciding factor for a lucrative marketing campaign. The user’s behavior can be influenced by various intrinsic and extrinsic factors, but it’s been proven that rewards are the greatest motivator to ensure a behavioral change.

Digital rewarding has a huge impact on swaying the behaviors of prospects and nurturing their transition to becoming customers. What started as a simple activity of showing the carrot of gift vouchers for a trial or demo, is now tactfully deployed to switch their old preferences with something new.

How does Automating Rewards influence user behavior?

The challenge isn’t just to reward users for filling out a survey or attending a webinar but to reward them with something that matches their preferences and expectations. The modern-day user would always be interested in getting a gift voucher or gift card from the brand of their choice.

To solve this problem, while keeping backend operations, rewards delivery, and redemption hassle-free, automation is a must. With seamless rewards from Xoxoday Plum, you can use ActiveCampaign at any step of your workflow for sales engagement, lead nurturing, and enablement.

Its end-to-end logistics and redemption support saves you from interacting with multiple vendors, cuts overheads, and offers better ROI on reward programs.

By automating rewards through Xoxoday Plum, your campaign would get exemplary results on all fronts—from spotting prospects to reeling them in and grooming them into regular customers.

Make your headway from the first pitch

Keep your list members happy by sending them meaningful and customized gifts. With automated rewards systems, send these gifts every time they book a meeting or sign up for a demo. Grab their interest from the very first time they show it.

Onboard customers in style

Your customers are coming on board for the product or service, but more than that, it’s the experience that matters. Deliver gift cards and vouchers from top brands to the newly onboarded customers on your list.

Build meaningful relationships

Keep your list of customers and prospects happy on their special days, festivals, and personal or professional accomplishments. Reward them from Xoxoday’s exclusive rewards catalog and build a business reputation as a brand with a personal touch.

Sign-ups, sales, and conversions

Accomplish the objectives of your campaign with incentivized milestone rewarding. From the first click to providing personal information, and ultimately, qualifying to be a lead, automating rewards leads to an unbroken thread crucial for sales enablement.

Xoxoday Plum offers a holistic catalog of more than 20,000 rewards from over 17 different categories, like experiences, activities, gift cards, travel, hotels, entertainment, e-commerce, grocery, and health and wellness.

These rewards can be redeemed in more than 70 countries in the categories mentioned, or new ones procured on-demand, making it perfect for integrating into your next marketing strategy with ActiveCampaign.
