Growave is Perfect for Small Business

Maintaining working processes and increasing the productivity of company resources is part of any small businesses core functions. Growth is underpinned by maximizing productivity of current capabilities. Then there is the need to maintain what resources that you may have in order to ensure operations move forward smoothly. A loyalty app can be an easy way to increase your store's conversions, while also automating the process. Automation takes away the possible complications of potential down time, and works passively to generate new loyalty members. This can help reducethe inherent risk your business is constantly facing (here you can learnhow inherent risk works and what is residual risk.

There are no guarantees as is the case in life, but a loyalty program can provide a way to mediate that risk. Loyalty apps work as a supplementary addition to your ecommerce business while also giving you increased functionality from an easily manageable admin panel. Although Growave started off as a rewards and loyalty app it has evolved into a multiple app platform. Control is vital in ecommerce and having five different apps in one platform provides exactly that.

Four Tips for Picking a Loyalty App:
  1. Loyalty programs often come with free trials. It is best to use this time to see what sort of product they offer before making a decision.
  2. Free trial periods are intended for testing but results are all that matter. A month does not reveal all but it's enough time to familiarize yourself with the product.
  3. The loyalty app will grow with effectiveness over time. As your members list grows so will the profitability of your program. The information that you draw from it will also help you make more informed decisions.
  4. Your data is saved, exportable and valuable. All the information that you gather is considered an asset in ecommerce. Having a movable database is vital and making sure this is possible is important.

Performance: Increase your stores performance metrics like AOV, Customer LTV and Conversion Rates

The e-commerce industry is known for having conversion rates as low as 3%, which can be terrifying for new businesses. An online store's performance is based on many factors, discounts and rewards are one of the most impactful factors. Loyalty programs provide rewards that grow more beneficial the longer you shop at that store. The hope is that a loyalty program can encourage a customer to choose your business as a long term solution for their needs. Growave works with more than 13,000 stores who are happy with our services. With the presence of rewards it is thought that conversion rates will increase, and in combination with Growave’s other apps this effect is further optimized.

Automation is a major trend in modern management because of how it increases operating efficiency, while removing the possibility for error. Factors like speed, human error and feedback are completely resolved. Programs are great for automating working processes and provide highly impactful information for decision making. The absolute best part of these apps is that they are easy to use and same alot of time for managers. They work in the background to drive your sales.
