  4. 4. Soft Benefits vs. Hard Benefits:    While a combination of hard and soft benefits is ideal, you don't necessarily have to offer &quot;points&quot; or monetary rewards to customers to build loyalty. By providing customers &quot;soft benefits&quot; you can positively impact their behavior.    Rick Ferguson wrote an article on soft benefits (The Softer Side of Loyalty*): &quot;Hard benefits are rewards that let customers know they’re getting something free in exchange for their continued patronage. Everybody likes to think he’s getting a deal. This is the rational side of the customer brain at work: I’m getting my money’s worth. But recognition is equally important. Soft benefits are recognition elements that tell customers you know they’re important. Soft benefits help differentiate you from your competitors, particularly in the eyes of your best customers. By offering them privilege, access, special treatment, and other amenities that only program members can obtain, you appeal to the emotional side of the customer brain: They know I’m important.&quot; CUSTOMER LOYALTY – SOFT VS.
