HealthLynked Announces Points Reward Program for Online Medical Supplies Purchases
New Points Reward System is Designed to Facilitate Future Growth, Customer Retention, and New Partnerships
NAPLES, Fla., Dec. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — MedOfficeDirect, a wholly owned subsidiary of HealthLynked Corp. (OTC-QB: HLYK) and an online distributor of medical supplies, today announced that it has introduced a new loyalty points reward system. Customers who create an account with MedOfficeDirect will earn reward points on their purchases that provide significant future savings.
The new points reward program is simple and easy to use:
- MedOfficeDirect customers will earn 1 point for every dollar they spend on the site. Points can be applied to receive discounts on future purchases.
- Registered reward members can refer other new users and earn points when the person they referred makes a purchase.
- Reward member: For every dollar spent by the referred member, 1 reward point will be issued to the reward member, up to a maximum of 10,000 points over 6 months.
- Referred member: Earn 1 point for every dollar spent. They can also participate in the referral program to earn additional points by referring their friends to the program.
Dr. Michael Dent, HealthLynked’s CEO stated “Our new rewards program provides value to our loyal customers who continue to buy from MedOfficeDirect. Allocating a percentage of our marketing budget to reward our loyal customers makes sense and provides them with additional savings on our already low prices. Our rewards program will also allow us to partner with other businesses and bring additional value to our loyal customer base.”
Points Reward Programs Are A Proven and Powerful Tool for Customers and Retailers According to a recent report by Forbes, 82% of respondents said they are more likely to shop with companies that offer some type of customer loyalty program. The same report found that two-thirds of respondents would choose one company over another based on the strength of their customer loyalty program.
Loyalty programs are also a powerful and valuable marketing tool for retailers. For example, a third-party appraisal valued the U.S. portion of American Airlines’ reward program at about $20 billion, or 4 times the company’s market capitalization during 2020. A recent McKinsey study also showed that referrals generate two times the sales of paid advertising for retailers.
Loyalty partnerships, such as shared point programs between airline and rental car companies, also provide substantial incremental cross-over value for both retail partners and their customers. MedOfficeDirect believes it is uniquely positioned to create such loyalty partnerships within the healthcare ecosystem.
