Here's a few articles I've read recently with some good information. I would love to hear some thoughts and personal expeirneces!

Restaurant Loyalty Programs- Worth It?

Lately I've been reading a lot about restaurant loyalty programs and whether or not they are worth it. The Menu Shoppe recently wrote about how loyalty programs increase revenue. I was sold until I read this blog post about how they reduce profits. I am hoping to hear from small restaurant owners who have used these programs and can talk about their results. So restaurant owners, what do you say? Is a restaurant loyalty program worth the effort?

Livio LauroSouthern Wine & Spirits of Nevada’s senior director of key accounts, and Armando Rosario, Southern’s director of mixology in Orlando, Florida, perused multiple bookstores before finally putting pen to paper. “We noticed that the cocktail book scene has become an interesting story: 500 recipes, 700 recipes, 800 recipes, 1,000 recipes, 2,000 recipes—the more the better,” Lauro says. So rather than contribute a tome boasting 2,001 recipes, they did the next logical thing: The Twelve Cocktails Everyone Needs to Know ($15,TwelveCocktails.com).

Inside Philips’ digital transformation strategy

Dutch tech and healthcare giant Philips has been in the smart-product creation business for some time. Now 12- years-old, the Amsterdam-based conglomerate generates $25 billion in sales with 108,000 employees spread across 60 countries. Change -- and consistency -- don't come easily at that size. And yet. Philips global head of digital Blake Cahill came on board 26 months ago, tasked with one audacious assignment: create digital harmony between Philips’ 10 businesses and get all staff and markets to the same level in digital. That has meant that while Philips uses agencies, it is bringing more capabilities in-house.
