Campaign

Challenge

For the new product launch, the brand needed to communicate product benefits in targeting dullness, discolouration and product pairing to boost skin radiance in an engaging and less technical manner that would be able to engage women between 25 – 45. Our objective was to drive traffic to the pop-up and hence drive sales for the product launch.

Approach

Inspired by highly addictive mobile games like Candy Crush, a product-themed multi-level matching game was created on a standalone site to prevent drop outs or barrier to participation for app downloads.
Throughout the game, product tips and education were woven into the game tutorial and game play through game matchings encouraging players to make product matching to score higher points which was in line with the real life recommended product usage.

Game participation and continuity was further incentivized through sampling, discounts and prizes, most of which were geared at driving foot traffic to the pop-up store, thereby creating a connected retail experience that helped drive online traffic to the offline pop-up.

Customer details were collected at the start of game play for lead generation and LCD screens were set up at the offline pop-up so walk-in customers could experience the game in-store as well, creating an omnichannel customer journey.

Results

The campaign collected 3000+ leads and sold out products within the first 2 weeks.

Click & Collect Increases Foot Traffic In-store for a Connected Customer Journey

Creating O2O Customer Journeys that Drive Business Priorities and Improve Customer Experience

Most campaigns only drive momentary traffic to stores. Brands, in the absence of ecommerce, often seek for a long term solution to drive online traffic to their offline stores. Our Click & Collect solution is designed to help your brand complete customer journeys and collect data for leads nurturing.

Challenge

Due to the lack of ecommerce presence, the brand recognized a huge gap in customer journey and mapping digital efforts made online to drive sales in-store. Our objective was to double foot traffic in-store during non-campaign periods and provide a connected retail experience for customers.

Approach

Click and collect product catalogue featuring key product ranges that customers can reserve online.

We created an online catalogue site where customers could shop the brand’s key ranges and reserve their order online. This allowed a connected customer journey for traffic driven from Facebook, Instagram, Blog, Email and Chatbot Messenger.

Through customer data and purchase behaviour collected, we were able to conduct dedicated leads nurturing and retargeting, reduce cart abandonment and increase conversions as compared to driving to third party retailers and offline stores.

Armed with robust customer data, staff in-store were able to improve customer experience, cross-selling and upselling also saw a significant rise due to better understanding of customer behaviour and preference.

Results

Foot traffic in-store doubled with increased conversions in-store through customer data collected that enabled more targeted cross-selling.

Challenge

Crayola is a brand that is part and parcel of many people’s childhood and the brand needed to leverage on this through the brand partnership to create desirability for its limited edition lipstick collection. Our objective was to drive sales in-stores for limited edition Clinique X Crayola Chubby Sticks For Lips through an O2O campaign that engaged the predominantly female audience while invoking shareability through user-generated content.

Approach

Crayola-themed illustration and shades made digital colouring fun & engaging for all ages.

Inspired by partner brand Crayola and the colouring book trend, we created a Clinique X Crayola themed website with a digital colouring engine where users enjoyed the fun and therapeutic experience of colouring through creating their own personalized creations.

To further incentivize participation and drive shareability, users were encouraged to share their unique creations on Facebook and Instagram to stand to win a limited edition Clinique X Crayola set.
Participation quickly took off and our social media was flooded with contest entries and overwhelming positive sentiment on how users enjoyed colouring, some even submitted multiple entries.

Offline colouring stations with personalized portraits drew crowds in-store & drove user-generate content online.

This online campaign was similarly mirrored in its offline manifestation in-store with live colouring stations where customers could colour with actual Crayola crayons and share their physical creations online to enter the contest – forming a seamless O2O experience for customers both online and offline.

Results

Overwhelming entries received from both online and offline consumers.

We received 300+ entries for the giveaway, collected 2000+ leads and the brand saw the highest sales in the lips makeup category for the year.

Challenge

With the holiday period buzzing, Lab Series introduced its exclusive gifting bundles which were only available at its two free standing stores in Singapore. Our objective was to quadruple sales for the brand by driving an O2O campaign, such that their bundles were perceived as the perfect gift for men.

Approach

Users unlocked daily deals on site to avail partner brand offers.

We took an integrated approach by creating a social media driven advent calendar, wherein everyday a limited period deal was revealed on Facebook and Instagram. Social media traffic was driven to a landing page to unlock the offer. This digital campaign enabled the brand to collect data as well as create an urgency for leads to go to the store to make their purchase within 2 days of unlocking the offer.

Social Media execution for communication on partner brand offers.

The icing on the cake getting partner brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Dyson, Apple, etc. on board to complete the experiential Christmas gifting.

It gained popularity swiftly as we were able to leverage on the audience of the partner brands as well.

Results

Sales soared in the month of November and December and achieved the highest sales revenue of the year.
