Our incentive program FAQ is divided into six sections (although we will be adding more in the future).

People who are just starting to learn about incentive programs (or need a quick refresher on some of the basic concepts) will probably want to start with one of these two pages:

  • Incentive Program FAQ: This page provides a quick-hitting introduction to incentive programs. Here, you’ll find answer to questions like, “What is an incentive program?” and “How do incentives change behavior?”
  • Incentive Rewards FAQ: This page gives you an idea of what types of rewards to use for your incentive program. You’ll learn why non-cash rewards are more effective than cash and how incentive travel works.

For people who are a little more advanced – you know about the basics of incentive programs but want to learn more about specific program types and strategies – you might want to check out the following pages:

  • Channel Sales FAQ: This page will help you define your channel sales incentive strategy and give you a quick introduction to channel incentive program best practices.
  • Sales Incentives FAQ: Are you looking to create an incentive program that motivates more productivity and profitability from your sales team? You’ll definitely want to check out our sales incentive program FAQ.
  • Loyalty Program FAQ: Looking to learn more about loyalty programs? This page will answer, “Why are customers loyalty to brands?” and “Do loyalty programs work?”
  • Employee Incentive Program FAQ: Need ideas for your employee incentive program? This page is a great place to start.
