    Just a thought to further kill off the competition.


    If Nutraplanet would incorporate a point system for purchases that would lead up to kickbacks or something in that fashion.
    It was a sudden thought when I was in a clothing store that offered such a thing, I think it may be a hassle to bring such a option for customers in Nutraplanet but it is pretty innovative since I have yet to run into a online store that offers such a thing.
    Any possibilities?

    I think something like that would be a good idea.. I know that I always shop around for the lowest price for a particular supplement. If a store offered some sort of inncentive for me to shop there. (gaining some sort of points) I might be more inclined to keep my business in one place.

    There is no opportunity cost of me buying a single order from a different store, But if i was going to miss out on potential points....

    Seriously, what competition? Last time I checked, NutraP was the only store in the Supplement Stores section.

    Competition may be nil at the "moment" but if a point system is to be used customers are more inclined to stay in 1 place as said by Jimbo.
    I am sure I am not the only person to window shop at other online supplement stores for product prices or specials.

    Actually that makes a lot of sense. I live in a small community in which until recently there was only 1 supermarket in town. Recently a second one opened but due to the fact that most people had built up so many points on their reward cards they've stuck with the first supermarket despite some better deals at the second.

    It all comes down to what everyone wants more. We can cut out the insane sales we have been having, in order to institute a program such as this, or we can keep the focus on constantly running monthly specials.

    I like the sales. They give me a reason to spend ridiculous amounts of money all at once because it's "for a limited time only".

    Wouldn't an increase in sales negate this fact, and push forward in to also keeping the sales going, Whilst attracting another type of customer base?

    I'm loyal. Until I get a reason to go somewhere else (saving a couple bucks is NOT a good enough reason, IMO), I usually stick with the same shop, unless they don't carry a specific item I'm looking for.

    I used to do the whole *shop around and save $10* thing. But, I don't agree w/ this buyer mentality anymore. I support those that support me with things that are more important than the absolute lowest cost.

    I'm not going to support Johnny Undercut just because he'll save me a few bucks. In the long term, I don't find that as beneficial as supporting the *good guys*.

    :bb:

    /off-topic (I guess maybe not so off-topic if this is a reason why I don't need a point-system)

    Just make sure you stabilize your shoulder. I kick back harder than a 12 gauge.
