How online casino VIP programs are setting trends In business

It’s no secret that customers love special treatment and individual attention. It makes sense that they also like being treated like kings. Gamblers and casino customers are no difference.

Players love to be showered in presents and attention, and as the research by Casino Hex says online casino bonuses are the best thing a player can receive. And VIPs receive them by the dozen all the time, that what makes them come back to the same land-based or online casino venues time and time again.

I’m not saying that casinos started the trend, but they keep it at it’s fullest. They know exactly what to give to their VIP customers and how to create the atmosphere around them to make them come back again and not once. And every company wants this type of success and loyalty.

How profitable are the VIP programs for business in general?

There’s a statement that we like, and it’s “Those who join your VIP program are worth more.” You set a task to push your clients to move from one tier to another one – they will inevitably become more loyal and committed to your company and brand. They will gain more value with every new purchase.

You can benefit from creating a VIP program as your clients can stay with you for a very long time. There’s a high chance to see returning clients – about 45% of VIP customers will make one more purchase. The more they buy, the more they get.

How will your profit increase? Let’s imagine a customer that goes through the VIP tiers and makes some purchases. The frequency of such purchases and the average order value are growing. VIP customers are likely to spend more than average clients. Experts state that you can expect them to bring you more profit up to 5 times.

How do VIP programs influence customers?

It’s not a secret that people tend to be better than their friends, relatives, colleagues, and others. VIP programs can give them a better social status. Let’s remember the mid-west Tribal casino, they had too many elite players, so many that the elite status lost its glory and this is how they came up with “above and beyond” status. And who doesn’t want to be on that level? They get the exclusive experience that a more significant part of your clients doesn’t receive. You will let your clients enhance the feeling of self-satisfaction, and it will make them come back to you in the future.

You can create the names for each tier that you have. Your clients will see that their status will change after making some actions and achieving some specific results. You can motivate your clients to achieve new levels and create attractive customer journeys. The upgrade of social status will attract people and stay with your brand for a long time.

What makes an excellent VIP program?

We consider two things to be the most important when creating a VIP program. The first is preventing or overcoming the client’s frustration and the second one is adding the things that will improve customer experience and make them feel engaged. These issues are not complicated to implement in the business processes.

You should prepare your clients to become members of a VIP program. If you run an online business, it can be an email with the information about the VIP program and its benefits. You can grant your current customers with a new status for a while for testing this idea. If you run an offline business, you can offer a VIP parking lot or something like that.

If you organize any events, you can think of comfortable conditions for the kids of your clients. There might be a babysitter that will take care of them. It can be free alcohol for VIP clients or any other perks that will surely make everyone feel pleased.

To improve the experience, you can offer your clients to become members of a community. You should provide some privileges for the member of such a club and remain a high level of services all the time. Your goal is to make people enjoy staying with you, have no problems with making a purchase, and solve all of the issues in no time.

The bottom line for VIPs

As the casino industry proved, creating VIP programs is good for business as it attracts people; you can make them spend more money and come back to you in the future. You can give your clients a new social status, unique privileges, and positive experience while staying with you and your company.

Your product or services can be of high quality, and there should be something more than you can offer. Personal communication, comfortable conditions, self-satisfaction, and great experience, in general, will increase your revenue and turn one-time buyers into regular customers.

NASCAR bans Dixie flags; joins Mitt Romney, NFL on the right side of history

This year has been something else and we’re only six months in. Though many can’t wait for the year to be over with, there’s a contingent of people — myself included — that believes there’s a lot of great change coming with all the challenges.

Regarding the protests and calls for social and racial justice over the last few weeks, we’re already seeing movement on many of the demands.

Black Lives Matter Changing Pop Culture

Not only have the world witnessed stunning global protests, but we’ve seen public opinion skyrocket in support of Black Lives Matter. In the past week, we’ve seen hundreds of corporations donate hundred of millions of dollars to several causes, we’ve seen the NFL do an about face, Mitt Romney marching in a “Black Lives Matter” protest and now NASCAR has released a statement on removing the presence of the the Confederate Flag at their events:

“The presence of the confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry. Bringing people together around a love for racing and the community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special. The display of the confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties.”

Okay, that’s not exactly supporting Black Lives Matter and racial justice, but considering how conservative NASCAR is, this is a huge step in the right direction. That simple action is very much worth mentioning and We’re sure the move will improve the reputation of professional race car racing and NASCAR betting online will most certainly increase. Banning the “Dixie” flag might not be inclusion, but it’s a step to opening the sport to others that previously associated it with racism.

That’s even if driver after driver quits. Even if fans decide to never attend another event. It’s the right thing to do and a couple days in, most drivers are supporting the move

NASCAR drivers, properties come out in support

Even with a few drivers quitting and fans being turned off. The feeling is that NASCAR won’t be damaged by the move. That’s if we look at some of the sport’s biggest personalities and racetracks coming out in support of the ban.

Bubba Wallace — NASCAR’s only black full-time driver — applauded the decision, telling Good Morning America on Thursday morning that now is “the most crucial time” to “come together and really try to be more inclusive.”

Racing legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. supported the move, saying: “It does nothing for anybody to be there flying, so I don’t see any reason,” the star driver said at the time. “It belongs in the history books and that’s about it.”

The Nashville Superspeedway, the location of next year’s NASCAR Cup Series race, tweeted in support of the ban.

We’ll continue updating this post as more drivers or speedways come out with statements.

Furthermore, getting gaming tech such a good controller, graphic cards, wider monitor, etc. will only come to aid your gaming skills and ensure that you don’t have issues such as lag or low resolution graphics.
