Realtime Media, a global leader in driving customer acquisition and engagement through creative applications of technology, provides receipt validation services as a premier solution, in addition to its digital promotions offerings. Customer receipt validation invites users to text or upload a picture of their receipt as proof of their participation in a sweepstakes, contest or instant win game to receive special rewards. Receipt validation can also be used to instantly qualify consumers for cash or gift card rewards, as a mechanism of driving brand loyalty.
This innovative process is used to incentivize purchase behavior by seamlessly connecting brands with their consumers and fostering customer engagement.
In a recent survey conducted by Realtime Media, the company found that 85% of respondents have run or considered running receipt validation, purchase-based campaigns. Realtime Media is tapping into the needs of brands and is making it easy to integrate receipt validation by streamlining the process which includes:
- Capturing and processing receipts from any retailer;
- Developing and managing the registration microsite for the rewards;
- Validating or rejecting receipts based on meeting program requirements;
- Strategic concept developments;
- Daily reporting on key metrics; and
- Automated fulfillment of digital rewards and incentives
“Receipt validation is a powerful way to launch loyalty incentives that increase purchase consideration, drive repeat purchases and build brand loyalty,” said Robert Bernstock, President/CEO, Realtime Media. “This technology enables CPG brands to place an incentive at the most critical part of the shopper journey – in the aisle; and it’s all accomplished with no complex POS integrations with retailers. We are proud to offer this service to our clients and they are already seeing success with many campaigns.”
