Reward Card And Incentive Marketing
According to several studies in the Incentive Marketing industry, companies are finding more and more that using incentives instead of cash is more effective in motivating people. Merchandise and travel incentives continue to be the most effective tool, and within merchandise – reward cards are the most popular choice.
Reward cards can be used in several capacities in incentive marketing. From driving floor traffic or closing tools at the consumer level, to a “thank you” for your accounts or employees, gift cards are a cost-effective incentive solution. CMC has identified five core areas for why reward cards can be so effective:
- Trophy Value: Reward card purchases are more memorable – they create a lasting reminder of achievement
- Viral Value: Employees tell each other how they redeemed gift cards
- Guilt-Free Spending: Recipients don’t feel guilty treating themselves
- Long-Term Positive Association with Organization: Reward cards reinforce positive associations with sponsoring organizations
- True Gift Perception: Gift cards are not viewed as part of compensation
CMC offers a variety of choices when it comes to gift card programs – Pick Your Plastic, E Gift Cards, Reward Cards, VISA Cards, etc. Our patent pending program, Pick Your Plastic, is just one option to choose from that will reinforce your brand, offer choice, deliver results, and save you time and money.

“In November Capitol Marketing provided an awesome experience that truly impressed some of my top clients. By using Capitol Marketing to obtain tickets and hotel accommodations in San Diego I was able to host a Packer road-trip that was first class.
Our stay at the Sheraton was awesome and the tickets, well I don’t think we could have been closer – probably the best seats I have ever had for a Packer game.
Capitol Marketing could not stop the rain but they did provide us with a Packer win and some great memories. More importantly, all of the clients signed new annual agreements for 2012 which is due in part to the great trip we had – thanks Capitol Marketing!”
