A good reward: 100 points for a free dessert

A GREAT reward: 70 points for a free dessert with purchase of meal

Other successful reward examples:

50 points for $5 off a ceramic mug with purchase of a coffee

100 points for a free plant with purchase of a planter

We recommend rewards are valued at 10 points = $1.00

How involved do I have to be? I (or my staff) don't have extra time.

You can be as much or as little involved as you need. Once your image, description, link, and (optional) reward are chosen, you do not have to manage the app nor have it open for visitors to collect points, simply remind them to do so. We also provide social media promotion on a rotation for you to share on Instagram and Facebook.

Updates can be sent to megan@brooksdistrictchamber.ca or done via your login link (be sure to ask our Digital Specialist to send you one) which allows you to access performance reports. 

How is the app better than Google Maps? 

The points and rewards feature gamifies local shopping and rewards both businesses and customers, while providing a digital directory that houses all your contact and social media links. Additionally, Experience Brooks-Newell is exclusive to the Newell area, so your profile does not have to compete with all the profiles on Google.   

Do I have to give away stuff for free? 

No! Locations can change whether they offer rewards or are a points only location at any time. For reward locations, we recommend BOGO and discount offers to boost your sales. Contact our Digital Specialist to help you develop your perfect unique offer. 

Can people collect points from my store without buying anything? 

As points can be collected by anyone who has an app account and is within GPS range, yes window shoppers can also collect points. The advantage of Experience Brooks-Newell is to increase foot traffic to your location, as well as utilizing unique rewards to increase sales. Locations can also opt to not be Point Collection Locations, instead keeping their profile in the App's digital directory.
