Why Boba Guys Needs a Mobile App to Take Customer Rewards to the Next Level

Why Boba Guys Needs a Mobile App to Take Customer Rewards to the Next Level

TLDR

As a loyal Boba Guys customer, you know the perks of their passport loyalty program. With custom rewards through a white-label app, your boba benefits can reach new levels. Integrating existing Square POS with a mobile app opens possibilities for unlimited loyalty points, referral programs, tiered subscriptions, tailored coupons, and much more. An app builds direct customer relationships with features like first-visit freebies, post-purchase surveys, and exclusive promotions. For boba lovers, enhancing loyalty pays off in free drinks, merchandise, and VIP treatment.

How a Custom App Can Enhance Your Loyalty Offerings

Personalized Experience

Per Diem app allows you to gain valuable insight into your customers’ preferences and behaviors. By analyzing data and metrics within the app, you can create highly tailored loyalty programs that resonate with your customers. For example, if you notice a subset of customers frequently purchase a particular menu item or product, you might create an exclusive offer just for them.

Exclusive Rewards and Perks

The mobile app gives you an opportunity to provide your most loyal customers with special rewards and perks that set them apart. For example, you might offer an elite tier within your loyalty program that provides customers with free products, members-only events, or early access to sales. Exclusivity breeds brand loyalty and also gives your customers an incentive to continue frequenting your business.

Seamless Transaction and Payment

Apple Pay integration within your mobile app allows for a seamless customer experience. Customers can store payment information within the app for convenient checkout and tap-to-pay options. The easier and faster you can make the transaction process, the more likely customers are to return. Apple Pay is a convenient and secure payment method that offers benefits for both customers and businesses.

Promotional Toolkit

A custom mobile app comes equipped with built-in features to help you promote your business. Things like push notifications, banners, and pop-up messages enable you to directly reach customers with news about sales, new products, events, and rewards. You can also provide customers with sharable content like social media posts, gifs, and referral programs to help spread the word about your brand. Promoting through your mobile app leads to higher engagement since customers have already opted in to receive communications from you.

With a tailored mobile app with an integrated loyalty program, you can foster meaningful relationships with your customers and motivate them to choose your brand over competitors. The benefits of increased loyalty, higher spending, and word-of-mouth promotion will enhance your business in the long run.

Other Successful Boba Brands With Per Diem

Many other boba brands have seen success with their own custom app, providing examples of how Boba Guys could grow their revenue and customer base.

Smart Coupon Campaign

Boba Bliss did really well after they launched their app with Per Diem by running their first mobile coupon campaign. Being downtown, they aimed to get more customers. They gave a free drink with the first purchase made through their app. They spread the word about this offer on social media and within the app itself, and as a result, tons of people downloaded the app. Using the coupon in the app made it super easy for customers to get their free drink. This smart campaign not only got more people using the app but also boosted sales for Boba Bliss. It shows how valuable digital coupons can be for getting more downloads and sales. And you can do the same with your dedicated mobile app.

A second time founder with a passion for building products at the intersection of hospitality and technology. I've had the pleasure of launching reservation systems, mobile payment solutions, and loyalty programs at OpenTable and Resy, and witnessed how operators were losing a direct connection with their customers online. We built Per Diem to strengthen the relationships that businesses have with those customers, and to ensure that local businesses can thrive in today's economy.
