Sales Incentives for Individuals

Great Individual Sales Incentives
That Get Great Results

If your sales incentives programs are inflexible or hard to manage, it’s probably time to reconsider how you’re managing your individual incentives. Are you using an outdated platform? With technology advancing so rapidly, even a relatively new tool can feel clunky to today’s users. Perhaps you’re still using a spreadsheet, but you need an easier, less manual way to keep up as your business grows. We have a solution that helps solve all of these challenges, and more.

Hawk Earn™ is an affordable SaaS solution that offers the speed, ease, access and rewards that can make your individual incentive plans more successful. Designed to deliver everything from a simple SPIF to more complex bundled or tiered rewards, it can launch a new program in mere minutes. This kind of speed and flexibility is exactly what a marketer needs to stay competitive in today’s sales environment.What kind of results can you expect? Well, it varies, but here are some representative results from our clients:

Client A has seen participation double year-over-year since the program started three years ago. It’s a competitive advantage because it’s hard to sell against in a highly commoditized market.

Client P has been able to segment their participants into value tiers, and by creating an “aspirational” tier, they are pushing growth in the lower-value tiers.7

To build sales loyalty, it’s also important to have a sales incentive program that is easy to access and use. Easy engagement also means being available where and when your sales people want to interact with you, whether it’s on a smartphone during a break, a tablet on the store floor or a laptop in the back office.

Offering desirable and compelling rewards is a critical part of your incentives program for individuals.

According to our recent reward preference research, sales people prefer:

  • Open-loop prepaid reward cards, and the higher the dollar value, the greater the preference.8
  • For a $25 incentive, 48% want a physical reward card and 35% want a digital reward card.8
  • For a $100 incentive, 62% want a physical reward card and 30% want a digital reward card.8
  • Our data shows that these are among the top gift and egift categories: Electronics, Food & Beverage and Clothing.

Hawk Earn offers an online reward catalog that gives your individual sales people the option to choose the rewards that they find most desirable, even if it means putting them on their Wish List and saving up enough points to redeem. By offering the rewards they really want, you are more likely to build loyalty and offer a better incentives experience.

Hawk Incentives provides end-to-end solutions, including platforms, rewards and white-glove service.
