Tom: Hi, I’m Tom Peace, Managing Director of The Loyalty People and Presenter of Let’s Talk A Little Loyalty. Welcome to this week’s short summary show, on behalf of Let’s Talk Loyalty, this week my Let’s Talk a Little Loyalty podcast showcases Paula’s interview with Adam Posner, who talks about his hugely popular “For Love or Money” Australia research reports and insights from 2022.

In the original podcast, Adam explains key insights from his research and discusses what compels consumers to join a loyalty program and the three B’s of loyalty. Adam also talked about generational differences in loyalty, preferences, rewards, and even currency types. Adam is a really great guy and a hugely experienced loyalty expert.

It was great to hear that this research is now in its 10th year, and listening to the original show was fantastic because Adam puts forward some really interesting theories back took by the data for all of us to learn from. This isn’t specific to the Australian marketplace. Adam talks us through his three B model for best practice loyalty. Behavior, Belief and Belonging.

As Adam says, belonging is becoming more and more important within a loyalty program. As members look for an alignment of interest and purpose with the brands they’re loyal to. This is a great trend globally, and Adam is absolutely right to highlight this. It was also very interesting to hear how Australians have highlighted loyalty as a major reason for changing their propensity to spend with a brand, and this is also a growing trend in the market.

Adam hypothesizes that this is to do with changing behavior as a result of the pandemic. I wonder if this is perhaps related to the tough economy we’re all in and consumers looking for value at every turn. This may also be why points reward catalogs are still the number two benefit in Australia and growing.

Like many other places, members still love that tangible and rational benefit of using points for something you would’ve had to pay for otherwise. Adam also speaks about how Gen Z are driving the revolution towards subscription based loyalty, which over indexes for this demographic. I think this relates to the fact that this generation more than the others, wants instant rewards and benefits and are willing to pay for access to them straight away.

And finally, Adam talks us through his six loyalty currencies that members use to validate if the program is right and valuable for them. These are financial, experience, utility, or time saving personalization, ego and social community. I think this is a really interesting and very valid framework, and another great insight from Adam.
