BHN Rewards’ Pro Tips: Making Our Incentive Management Tools Work for the Holidays

The end of the year is ripe with opportunities to harness the power of rewards, so it’s no surprise that our team at BHN Rewards is ready for it. The incentive management tools available within the BHN Rewards platform streamline your holiday campaigns and gifts to save you time and money during this already busy time.

Whether you’re an existing customer or just considering rewards for the first time, we can help you discover the many ways to take advantage of BHN Rewards during the holidays and a number of key features that will come in handy.

Using Holiday Rewards Across the Company

Internally and externally, rewards and streamlined incentive management tools can help almost every department — from sales and marketing to human resources — at this time of year. Here are just a handful of reasons to send rewards:

  • Show appreciation for your most valued customers by sending them a digital gift card with a personalized message.
  • Thank brand advocates who have submitted referrals and reviews, done case studies, or participated in training.
  • Incentivize the annual employee or customer survey to collect feedback.
  • Offer a reward-based promotion to close deals fast before the end of the year.
  • Engage prospects in demos and meetings to build pipeline for Q1.
  • Send gifts to your employees to acknowledge their hard work and dedication.
  • Recognize top performers with a digital reward delivered during year-end team meetings or sales kickoffs.

The Incentive Management Tools That Can Help

BHN Rewards is an all-in-one platform that allows every department to use rewards for their own purposes. Certain functionality will become especially important at the end of the year, as teams look to hit Q4 goals, streamline processes, show results from 2023, and plan ahead for 2024. Check out these four features to make the most of your time and our tools.

1. Integrations

With its 25+ out-of-the-box integrations, BHN Rewards brings its incentive management tools directly into many of the software programs you already know and use every day. Sales teams won’t need to learn yet another platform, since they can send rewards from within CRMs like Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics 365. Marketers can automate reward delivery within their holiday campaigns via HubSpot and Marketo. HR teams can empower managers to send end-of-year employee rewards during live meetings and via chat messages in Microsoft Teams.

2. Workspaces

Letting multiple departments have unfettered access to your incentive management tools is just asking for trouble. With BHN Rewards’ workspaces, you can virtually separate different teams and budgets, all within the same account. Each user sees only the campaigns that are relevant for them — and can spend only the reward dollars allocated to their budget group.

3. Campaign management

Even within an individual workspace, you can set up multiple reward campaigns to keep things organized. For instance, the sales team may have different campaigns for distributing rewards for end-of-year promotions and sending customer appreciation gifts. HR likely needs to keep company-wide employee gifts and top performer awards separated, for both budget and access reasons. Or maybe they prefer to set up different campaigns for sending gifts to employees in different countries. BHN Rewards allows users a lot of flexibility while providing a simple way to stay organized. Easily keep track of which campaigns are live and running, and which campaigns are ready to turn off (and return those funds to your account).

4. Reporting

Not only are you going to need to report back on your return on investment for holiday rewards, you’re also likely being asked by leadership to give insight on the entire year. BHN Rewards makes it easy to pull and filter reports to track how many rewards were sent and claimed, how much money was spent and refunded, and if there are rewards still available to send. You can track this data for the entire account or by campaign.

Also, when BHN Rewards’ incentive management tools are integrated with another platform, there may be additional information available from that platform’s reporting capabilities. Even better, if you can combine data from both sources, such as BHN Rewards reports and HubSpot email send data, you’ll get a more complete picture and have more information about your holiday ROI.
