Rather than giving
your customers yet another punch card to stuff in their wallets,
consider taking your sandwich shop or café's loyalty program online.
Scanning a Tag at the cash register could be an easy, paperless way for
customers to track how many drinks they have left until that free one,
with a mobile coupon for baristas to scan once they hit the milestone.
a Tag on tables can make it easy for customers to sign up for your
e-newsletter, giving you a simple way to communicate drink specials,
live musicians, or events – and keep track of your growing customer
base. Tags could also link to your shop's mobile site, with a featured
Customer of the Day, viral videos, "Vote for your favorite barista," and
more. You could incorporate check-in services like Foursquare, too.
