Best Gift Card Solutions for Small Businesses

As a small business owner, you know that sometimes just getting customers in your store is half the battle. That isn't even taking customer retention into consideration.

Excellent service/products that withstand the test of time should be at the core of your business, but a little extra assistance getting some sales wouldn’t hurt, right?

Sure, there are promotions and referrals and endless “gimmicky” approaches you can take. But why not utilize a method that is tried and true?

We are talking about Gift Cards.

Did you know that 44% of consumers visit a store they would not have visited otherwise because of a gift card?

How valuable would it be to start reaching new customers? And that is just one fantastic facet of what gift cards can bring to your small business.

Let’s talk about more benefits and features.

Benefits of Gift Cards

Gift Card Benefits for Small BusinessesSmall Business Marketing Opportunities

You like data and facts, right? Here are two more statistics for you about Gift Cards:

  1. 93% of consumers will buy or receive a gift card this year
  2. 72% of customers spend more than the value of their gift card

So what does this mean?

Well, it means that gift cards are being circulated a lot and customers aren’t accepting them at face value, so to speak.

If someone visits a retail shop with a $25 gift card, and they find that top they just can’t live without, but it costs $30, they aren’t thinking, I’m spending $30 on this blouse.

They are thinking, I’m getting this blouse for $5, what a deal!

The customer is happy and you, the business owner, profit.

Here are two more benefits of gift cards that you may not have considered:

  • Marketing: Gift cards are like tiny, marketing billboards in your customer’s wallets that get shared and passed around. That is fantastic for brand awareness and getting people in your store. To the recipient, it is free money!
  • Lost Gift Cards: Even you have likely been guilty of this. It’s the holidays or your birthday, you receive a couple of gift cards, but in the packing and the hustle and bustle, you lose or misplace the card. If your small businesses's gift card is lost and never redeemed, you have just made a profit without having to supply any goods or services.
