87% of Canadians Give and Receive gift cards (see research here).
It stands to reason that the stat would be similar for Edmontonians. Is your business cashing in on this trend, or getting left in the dust? If you are like most independent businesses, gift card sales are a huge area of opportunity for revenue, vs. a strong generator already.
The reason is simple -- most Canadians buy gift cards at convenient super market kiosks. The problem is that these kiosks typically only contain gift cards for big box stores, chain restaurants, and, well, Amazon. These guys are taking the majority of the gift card cut. Boooo. Phooey. And various other expletives.
That's a problem for you, as a business owner. That's also a problem for gift card recipients. These gift cards are nice, but BORING. They'd rather open a gift card for your restaurant, shop, or spa. We know it, and you know it too. So how do we make this happen?
