V.SPN, SQ, PAY News Commentary

PR Newswire

NEW YORK, March 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a research report by Mordor Intelligence, the global loyalty management market was valued at USD 2.1 billion in 2017 and it is expected to reach a value of USD 6.8 billion by 2023 with a CAGR of 21.13% during the forecast period (2018-2023). The increasing popularity of loyalty management programs are explained by the importance of client retention building of sustainable customer relationships. As a result, businesses across major industry verticals are gradually shifting toward customer-centric approaches. The report indicates that the high cost of customer acquisition is forcing companies to develop their own business model and focusing on client retention. As loyalty management revolves around rewarding an organization's repeat customers, developing customer-centric strategies have become necessary to keep the customer retention rate high.

Data provided by Colloquy Loyalty Census shows that the market has approximately 3.8 billion users with memberships enrolled in loyalty programs in 2017, which signals continued growth. "In 25 years, rewards have arisen from marketing gimmick status to a paramount competitive force in financial services and other industries," says Gwenn Bézard, a Research Director with Aite Group and the author of the report. "The reward industry is shifting from pushing one-size-fits-all rewards to delivering highly personalized rewards through advanced segmentation. Junk goods manufacturers are out, and PhDs are in."

Snipp Interactive Inc. (OTCQB: SNIPF) is also listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the ticker (TSX-V: SPN). Just announced breaking news this morning that," it has secured a six-figure contract addition for Canada and the U.S. markets with a global household and personal care products consumer goods company for whom the Company has been running a program on its market-leading SnippCheck platform.

The customer originally engaged Snipp in March of 2016 and subsequently expanded the scope of the agreement twice, including an extension into the Canadian market. The customer signed this latest addition based primarily on the outstanding success of the recent promotion, which was launched in October 2017 on the Company's SnippCheck proprietary receipt processing and SnippRewards platforms in the U.S. and Canadian markets. The program drove over a 100,000 participants to purchase $15 worth of the client's products resulting in over $2MM of incremental revenue for the client per their estimate. This contract represents a prime example of the impact and scalability of Snipp's programs across multiple geographies and also for multiple industries.

"We are extremely pleased to receive additional recognition of the impact of Snipp's robust marketing platform from an existing client. This is becoming a welcome trend, with successive clients who have chosen to expand their relationship with Snipp, based on the success of past promotions. We look forward to delivering best in class marketing and technology solutions for this industry giant. With each contract extension, industry confidence and awareness of our platform continues to grow, as brands increasingly recognize our ability to deliver innovative solutions to help drive engagement and sales. Moreover, we are excited that these same platforms can be used in new markets ranging from the Hospitality to the Cannabis industry, both of which we have only just begun to focus on in a more serious way. For example, we recently launched our Cannabis Marketing Resource Center (CMRC) focused on helping players in this evolving industry take advantage of our deep knowledge of running promotions in the Alcohol, Pharma and Tobacco space. Since launching many leading industry players have been signing up at to take advantage of our knowledge in running effective and compliant programs in similar regulated industries. We are confident that over time many of these Cannabis players will graduate from taking advantage of the knowledge they will be acquiring from our CMRC to gaining competitive advantage in their markets by leveraging our platforms and technology," commented Atul Sabharwal, Snipp Chief Executive Officer, "In addition we look forward to sharing our Q4 2017 and full year audited financial performance with our investors in the coming days. We will be announcing a final date for our earnings release and conference call later this week." Visit the Snipp website at for Snipp's full suite of solutions and examples of Snipp programs."
