"Local marketers are making room for loyalty and transaction marketing alongside their traditional focus on advertising. Loyalty and rewards programs, deals, coupons, gift cards and gift certificates are playing major roles in this shift. Together, they'll increasingly gain parity with paid media advertising, such as display ads and contextual search ads."
- Peter Krasilovsky, report author, vice president and senior analyst, BIA/Kelsey
