Rebate Management Bootcamp: The Basics of Rebates
Rebates have been around for a long time (since at least the 1800s). For many modern businesses, rebates are a valuable tool for protecting margins, maintaining loyalty and increasing revenue. But for many more, rebates are a black box.
Some businesses utilize rebates because they’re viewed as the cost of doing business. Others leverage rebates because they have strategic business value. Still others don’t use rebates at all, uncomfortable with the idea of diving into complex incentive schemes that may ultimately hurt the bottom line.
