How the 86 Feature Helps Bakeries Manage Inventory and Increase Sales

Keep Track of Stock in Real-Time

The 86 feature allows bakeries to mark menu items as “sold out” for the current day so customers know the item is unavailable, while still allowing pre-orders for the next day. This functionality provides an accurate picture of stock levels so bakeries can track what’s selling and make data-driven decisions to optimize their menu and avoid waste.

Enable Advance Orders and Boost Sales

Although an item may be sold out for the current day, the 86 feature allows customers to place advance orders for pickup the next day. This capability means bakeries don’t lose sales from customers who still want to purchase the item. Advance orders also give bakeries predictability so they can bake the precise amount needed and avoid leftovers.

Send Promotional Offers to Drive Future Visits

The 86 feature integrates with the bakery’s loyalty program and Square POS system to capture customer details from advance orders. Bakeries can then use this information to send promotional offers and incentives to drive repeat visits and spending. For example, a bakery could offer a discount on a customer’s next purchase or give a free item on their birthday. Targeted marketing like this boosts customer lifetime value.

Streamline Operations and Reduce Costs

By providing visibility into stock levels and advance demand, the 86 feature allows bakeries to optimize production. They can ensure they have enough of each menu item to meet orders without over-baking, which reduces waste and controls costs. The feature also simplifies order processing by automatically updating stock levels when a customer places an advance order. This automation saves time and minimizes errors.

What a Referral Program Can Do to Boost Customer Acquisition

Increase New Customers at a Lower Cost

A referral program allows you to gain new customers through word-of-mouth marketing from your existing loyal customers. This is an organic and highly effective way to acquire new customers at a fraction of the cost of traditional advertising. According to research, referred customers have a 16% higher lifetime value. They also make bigger first purchases and remain customers for longer.

Build Brand Loyalty

Referral programs are a great way to build brand loyalty by rewarding your customers for spreading the word about your business. When customers refer their friends and family, it reinforces their connection with your brand. Stock incentives for referrals give them another reason to return regularly. This rewards system motivates participation in the referral program and boosts customer acquisition.

Drive Sales and Revenue

Referred customers typically spend more money and make repeat purchases more often. They already have a connection to your brand through the referring customer and are primed to become long-term, high-value customers. Referral programs have been shown to drive a 25-75% increase in revenue over 6-12 months. The more people join through referrals, the more your sales and profits will grow.

In summary, a well-designed referral program through your mobile app can be a game changer for customer acquisition and business growth. By rewarding your loyal customers for spreading the word, you gain new high-value customers, build brand loyalty, and increase your sales and profits. Adding referral capabilities to your mobile app is a smart way to supercharge growth in a sustainable, cost-effective manner.
