Lewis said the key is to stay focused on your target audience. He said in a report that prior to launching its loyalty program, the grocer had only 55-65% of its best customers' wallet share.

The consistency of website and app to the program is important he said, as well as making the sign-up decision "easy and free". Lewis noted many customers make the loyalty sign-up decision in store.

Some metrics related to Loblaws’ program Lewis divulged included that 6,000 customers per store registered; 50% email open rate; three times lift in sales (compared to printed flyers); 12% increase in visits; and 5% increase in basket size.
