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. In this week’s episode of Let’s Talk A Little Loyalty, I review the original podcast where Paula was joined by Matt Goldberg from Floor & Decor. In the original show, Matt and Paula discussed the insights behind the Pro Premier Rewards Programme and I’ll summarise key points from the loyalty strategy designed to deliver powerful benefits to the community of flooring professionals nationwide.

This is a B2B programme with a vision of continually growing share of wallet with their business customers. Floor and Decor is a brand that offers the same products and pricing to both its trade and consumer customers. This is great for customers, but it did give them a challenge in terms of creating a point of differentiation for their trade customers.

Matt talks about how he created the Pro Premier Rewards program to address this need for a clear USP for the trade customer base. Matt talks about how price and promotions are only a small part of what trade partners look for. The end customer is the eventual purchaser. So the trade customer isn’t always too motivated by price.

Floor and decor look for ways to create a relationship with trade customers, developing emotional connections through convenience, trust, and by helping them to build their business. Matt talks about how important service levels are for trade partners and therefore how much they focus on customer service, stock availability, delivery, et cetera, in order to ensure that the trade customers are always satisfied.

On top of this, Matt implemented a point space program for trade customers that provides a huge catalog of highly beneficial products and solutions aimed at reducing a trade customer’s business costs or increasing their business efficiency. However, there are lots of amazing experiential benefits that make the engagement really exciting to trade customers.

Experiences include race car driving, swimming with sharks, and other once in a lifetime experience. This is a very clever way to differentiate in a market that is dominated by price messaging and really adds value to the trade members. You can find the main show at www. letstalkloyalty. com and first aired on the 25th of August, 2022, episode number 267.
