What are Digital Rebates?

Discover an innovative approach to consumer engagement and retail velocity with digital rebates. Unlike traditional paper coupons, digital rebates offer a seamless and instant way for customers to receive discounts and rebates directly through their mobile phones. This modern approach not only enhances customer convenience but also provides brands with valuable insights into consumer behavior and purchase patterns. 

By leveraging digital rebates, brands can track redemption rates, gain basket insights, and run engaging sweepstakes to collect first-party data, ultimately driving higher purchase rates and fostering deeper customer connections.

From Paper Coupons to Digital Delight

Gone are the days of clipping paper coupons and managing physical receipts! With the advent of digital marketing, digital rebates represent a modernized method for brands to engage with their customers. This modern approach not only streamlines the rebate process but also allows brands to track rebate redemptions in real-time and gather crucial basket insights. 

Additionally, digital rebates enable the execution of sweepstakes, which help in collecting valuable first-party data from retail interactions. Many companies have utilized Brij to execute sweepstakes to grow their brand. For instance, Sapporo has run a myriad of digital ads to collect 1st party data and drive retail velocity. This model enables brands to avoid the pain of managing traditional clearing houses. This data-driven strategy not only enhances consumer experiences but also drives significant purchase activity, making digital rebates a vital tool for modern marketing campaigns.
