Oz Web Rewards is a Top 20 Loyalty program – WORLDWIDE!

Here at Oz web Rewards, we were very excited and humbled to learn last week that we have placed in the top 20 worldwide for Customer Loyalty Programs.

SIGNL is a company that provides real-time business intelligence and analysis, tracking company growth, from small start-up companies to big business players. They analyse more than forty million web-based data points every week, including social media, news, and mobile technology.

On 24th October 2013, we were thrilled to learn that of 411 loyalty program companies ranked worldwide by SIGNL, Web Prosperity Pty Ltd placed number 19. Web Prosperity Pty Ltd is the parent company under which Oz web Rewards operates.

We truly believe this is an amazing achievement, and it reiterates for us what we have been saying about the Oz web Rewards Loyalty Program all along: that we offer a unique rewards portal to benefit both Australian consumers and merchants, that is generous and comprehensive, and far superior to most other reward schemes available in the market today. We are also unique in that we have a sponsor program in place by which we can “pay it forward” and give something back to others who can most benefit.

Check out Oz web Rewards today – both for your online shopping needs, and also our enormous rewards store. Joining is free and points earned never expire.

Fat Wallet?

A recent article on a Perth News website questions the reader, “Do you have Fat Wallet Syndrome?”

It refers to an old Seinfeld episode where George Kostanza just can’t fit one more thing into his overloaded, bursting at the seams wallet. And it’s not bursting at the seams with money!

It seems, too, that wallets of Australians are also bursting at the seams – with an immeasurable number of loyalty cards from various stores and brands. Market research suggests that well more than two million of us belong to a loyalty program, and more than one in ten of those who do, belong to more than ten. We may be carrying plastic loyalty cards, or cardboard throw-aways when every square gets stamped and we receive our freebie (like in massage clinics and coffee shops). Either way – they fill up our wallets with just more stuff.

Men and women are both targeted in this way – and many will admit more is spent with the idea of reward in mind. But the plethora of loyalty cards and programs has saturated the market and the competitive advantage of one retailer over another has been threatened by the fact that it is now the norm.

Not only is a fat wallet bad for health (men out their wallet in their back pocket; and then sit on it, misaligning the spine over time), but according to Chinese Feng Shui, a wallet full of “stuff” leaves no room for it to become full of money. Which, let’s face it, is what a wallet is for, is it not?

But the loyalty program we have here at Oz web Rewards is different – in a great way.

For starters, there is no card! All you need is a login and a password to our site (given when you join for free) and you can shop with our listed merchants from any computer. We have over 76 Australian online merchants onboard with our program, offering unique rewards; you shop with any of these, pool your generous 5% rewards redemption rate, and then (similar to credit card reward programs) you can shop in our rewards store. All of the products in this store come from our merchants and there are literally hundreds of items from which you can choose. Rewards are real, tangible, and easy to earn.

Best of all – you will be supporting Australian small to medium business.

Check out Oz web Rewards today – you will be very happy you did!

Loyalty Programs: Why They Are Worth It

A recently published Consumer Study, the For Love or Money? 2013 Consumer Study into Australian Loyalty Programs, found that customer loyalty schemes do indeed motivate stronger brand loyalty, higher spending, and provide businesses which have loyalty programs with a competitive edge over their non-rewarding counterparts.

A majority of shoppers surveyed stated that they will buy more if there are reward incentives, and they will choose to shop where they are members of a reward program over other businesses.

Customer loyalty is deemed to be the greatest asset a business can possess; happy and loyal customers will bring in repeat business as well as referrals and recommendations to other potential customers. The best loyalty programs will recognise and reward brand loyalty and commitment, not just repeat purchasing by their members.

So it’s unfortunate that a high percentage of consumers in Australia don’t believe they receive true value from their reward programs; most find communication to members from the progams to be poor and that benefits are not valuable enough to warrant active membership.

At Oz web Rewards, we are proud to offer a unique rewards program which is truly comprehensive, relevant to Australian consumers and merchant business owners, and sustainable. We are a one-stop portal to over 75 unique Australian online merchants, offering online shopping and products from a varied range of categories, and we allow pooling of rewards earned over our merchant base to redeem for rewards from those same merchants in our rewards store. Our rewards system is generous, at a reward rate of 5% – significantly higher than many other programs in the marketplace. Finally, we offer a unique sponsor program, by which customers can nominate charities or organisations of their choice to benefit from donations by Oz web Rewards based on dollars spent on our program by customer members. It is simply our way of giving back.

Visit Oz web Rewards today and browse our merchant database. Joining is free, and as a member, everytime you shop with one of our merchant members via our website, you are guaranteed not only great products, but fabulous rewards for your loyalty.
