Market Guide for Loyalty Marketing Platforms*, a publication aimed at
helping marketing executives understand how key players in the space
approach loyalty marketing.
Gartner observed that loyalty is changing, and brands need to look
beyond traditional points programs to engage and retain customers.
"Marketers are recognizing the limitations of standalone
accrual/redemption engines. In response, they need to focus on a more
strategic, long-term relationship with customers based on techniques
and treatments that add to affinity, where point programs are part of
the approach, but not all."
"We are honored to be included in the Gartner Market Guide and see this
is a testament to the work we're doing with some of North America's
biggest brands," said Bob Macdonald, President and CEO of Bond Brand

customers. Every marketing motion a brand makes is either loyalty in
the making or loyalty in the breaking â" and we have the expertise to
build deeper digital and human relationships between brands and the
people who matter most to their businesses."
Bond offers a depth of brand loyalty services and solutions, including strategy, design, technology, customer analytics, customer experience, marketing research, and event
