Taking advantage of the Employee Contest Feature
Many of our Clubessential users have seen real bottom line benefits from our easy to use employee contests feature. Some take advantage of this feature during the slow season to increase sales of certain items and boost average tickets. Whether your goal is to increase average tickets, improve customer service, or boost morale, an employee contest can help achieve your objectives. Employee contests help convert your staff from a labor cost to a marketing tool by motivating them to up sell. The healthy competition and opportunities for recognition that an employee contest provides help boost morale and increase staff retention. Motivated staff making suggestions to customers about great deals or recommended items improves the customer experience. The few simple steps that I have listed below will help you to create a path to customer satisfaction and staff enthusiasm.
