Rewarding in Stock Ownership Can Drive 33% Greater Lifetime Value
Bumped released data from their two-year pilot study that shows the impact stock rewards can have on user behavior. The data indicates an owner drives 33% more lifetime value than a customer does.
The Bumped pilot ran for two years and rewarded over 13,000 US consumers in fractional stock rewards when they spent at more than 80 brands. Once rewarded in stock by a brand, the average Bumped user showed a 43 percent increase in monthly spending, with a 1.5x increase in monthly visits to brands that rewarded them in stock when they purchased. The average reward-spend-ROI across all 80 brands was 23x.
