Business Spotlight: Sturgeon Valley Athletic Club (SVAC)

When a gym is doing something right, the numbers speak volumes.  This is true for Sturgeon Valley Athletic Club where we saw registered members in their loyalty program take an average of 12 classes versus 3 classes for non-members over 60-days.  Sturgeon Valley Athletic Club was launched in 1996 just outside of Edmonton in St. Albert, Alberta.  SVAC has over 1,500 club members and occupies 22,000 sq ft.

Points for Booking Online

Recently, we rolled out a new points feature for businesses using MindBody. This feature will allow you to incentivize customers to book classes, appointments, and workshops online, rather than booking the classes over the phone or in person which streamlines scheduling. (Think Southwest online booking level of efficiency.)

Mindbody users can take advantage of this bonus point feature right away. With all things Perkville, setting up this bonus points feature is easy—we’ve written up the step by step process in our help section here.

Perkville’s Introductory Points Feature

I cringed when I saw the words ‘introductory points feature.’ Immediately my mind went back to my retail days when I had to tediously register new customers manually. It would take at least 5 minutes to input a new customer’s information into the system and another minute to calculate their initial discount.  
 
But these are the same reasons why Perkville merchants should be beaming—Perkville merchants don’t have to do any of the above.  
 
Our introductory points feature can jump start a rewards program by giving new customers starter points or reward existing customers automatically.  

To give all of your customers introductory points, just sign into Perkville and visit the business dashboard. Then click “Jump Start Your Reward Program,” type in how many points you’d like to give each customer and upload the customer list (.CSV file please). Since new customers enroll with their email, they will automatically receive introductory points—and merchants don’t have to do anything.  

It’s really that easy—and FREE (introductory transactions do not get billed).  

If you are like me and need visuals, here is what you can expect to see when you jump start your rewards program:
