Increase Your Customers’ Lifetime Value, Without
Increasing Your Customer Acquisition Costs

Increasing the lifetime value of your customers (LTV) without increasing your average customer acquisition costs (CAC) is the key to improve the long term profitability of your entertainment center.

Most entertainment centers already know this intuitively, but struggle to execute on retention strategies at scale. The Retention IQ can automate the process of maximizing your lifetime revenue per visitor and the profitability of your facility.

Skyrocket Customer Loyalty With
Various Integrated Programs

Points Programs

Points programs incentivize customer purchase behavior. Once combined with the system’s integrated messaging that automatically updates customers with their individual point totals, and next reward levels — it drives repeat sales.

Our Unified Commerce IQ lets guests spend their points toward free or discounted products and keeps track of everything in a clear and consistent manner.

Furthermore your points program is a great reason to communicate with your customers in a positive fashion which keeps you and your facility top of mind, once again increasing return visits and profitability.

Loyalty Programs

Loyalty programs support and reward behaviors that demonstrate customer loyalty.

Loyalty indicators and rewards are configurable in the Retention IQ platform so that they support the initiatives that support your retention plan’s strategic goals.

Do you want to encourage monthly visits?

How about rewards for referrals or bringing friends to your facility?

Whatever the goals of your loyalty program, the Retention IQ loyalty program system has got you covered.

VIP Programs

For most entertainment centers, a small number of big spenders, or “VIP” clients account for a disproportionately large percentage of the facility’s profitability. For these special customers, the traditional Points or Loyalty program is not enough.

For these High Rollers, the Retention IQ supports a VIP program.

Your facility’s VIP program is completely customizable, and it’s really only limited by your imagination. For some businesses, it’s early access to events or new attractions, For others, it’s invitations to private events. You are free to delight your VIP guests and ensure they remain BIG SPENDERS for years to come.

Create Recurring Revenue

Recurring revenue is your company’s (and your banker’s) best friend. It can smooth out seasonal variability in your revenue. It can make your company more resilient, and able to withstand economic downturns and external macro-economic shocks.

The Retention IQ supports the development of recurring revenue products including Membership and Subscription programs.

Retention’s Membership and Subscription programs support a variety of business models, including limited access, unlimited access, or a unique mixture of products that can be included with the membership / subscription depending on the level selected by the user.

Isn’t it time your entertainment center benefited from some reliable and stable income streams?

Reward Your Best customers

Everyone loves feeling like they got a little something “extra”.

The Retention Rewards system is a great way to influence guest behaviors in a positive way and keep them coming back for more. Create special discounts, give-aways, contests, prizes — like extra play time, “buddy” passes for their friends, and more.

Retention IQ works with your Customer Data Platform IQ to help you uncover the incentives and reward programs that are most effective at impressing your guests and motivating them to act. Rocket Effect helps you uncover the inspiration for your next killer campaign or incentive program.

Automated outreach

Re-engage dormant users

Leverage a gold-mine of data in the Rocket Effect Customer Data Platform IQ to identify real-time changes in behavior — like, shifts in the recency and frequency of your guests’ visits. Then proactively, automatically, reach out to those customers with customized messages. Become aware of any controllable issues that could affect their purchase frequency, or just ensure that your facility stays top of mind for their next entertainment outing.

Not All Revenue Is Created Equally

We know, this is a little bit counter-intuitive. All money is the same, right? After-all, when you drop your cash receipts in the night deposit box neither your “dead presidents” nor the bank know whether they came from a game card purchase, a go-kart rental, or an order of chicken wings.

However, when that same banker goes to value your business, or evaluate your revenue for the suitability of a loan to fund your expansion, revenue that comes from a predictable, reliable, source will be viewed very differently indeed.

And it makes sense. Many of us in the entertainment center business deal with a certain amount of seasonality in our revenues. And, after the last coup.e of years, we are all painfully aware that events completely outside of our control can significantly impact the predictability of our revenue. Programs, like the Rocket Effect membership program, can even out your revenue flow, help you sleep better at night, and turn your operation a predictable, reliable, cash machine.
