Since 2005, Cosmetics & Fragrance Direct has grown its business as Australia’s foremost outlet store for beauty supplies and fragrances. In such a competitive and vibrant industry, Cosmetics & Fragrance Direct was looking for a way to strengthen customer loyalty and keep customers shopping with them over their competition.
With 5 brick-and-mortar and online stores located nationwide throughout Australia, they needed a marketing solution that would support all of their sales channels and help them to reach their vision of becoming the #1 cosmetics and fragrance outlet in Australia.
Cosmetics & Fragrance Direct runs a well-oiled retention marketing machine across all of their physical sites and their online store. Using Marsello, they’ve automated key relationship-building emails and set up a loyalty program that rewards customers who shop both in-store and online.
They have also taken their marketing a step further by collecting customer feedback through a short survey designed to measure customer satisfaction. Additionally, they’re also driving sales on top of their retention strategy with beautifully designed and conversion-focused one-off email campaigns. To maximize their marketing, Cosmetics & Fragrance Direct created a simple and attractive loyalty program; they also use automated email flows to engage their customers and prompt them for feedback on the shopping experience.
Cosmetics & Fragrance Direct is solidifying itself as a household name, and a leading cosmetics and fragrances retailer throughout Australia.
Cosmetics & Fragrance Direct have more than doubled their customers' average spend per order with their 'Exclusive Shopper' loyalty program.
The ‘Exclusive Shopper’ loyalty program is intentionally kept simple with a $10-off discount code as their sole reward. With an 11% repeat purchase rate and a 2x increase in customers’ average spend, Cosmetics Fragrance Direct is reaping the rewards of an airtight loyalty program. Exclusive Shoppers earn points by making purchases (no matter what sales channel they shop through – both in-store and online) and providing their birthdate and email address. This profile completion reward cleverly gives Cosmetics Fragrance Direct the ability to better target their loyalty program customers in future marketing campaigns.
