We started by creating a Social Media strategy where the aim was to engage with the customers. We did a target audience research and adjusted our posting habits on their preferences.
There has been a lot of press about how millennials and Gen Z consumers are less focused on buying “things” and prefer experiences. We hopped on the bandwagon and set up a few pop-up experiences in order to be at the front end of the customer. During these pop-ups consumers were able to test the products and follow makeup workshops.
We helped Sacha Cosmetics to partner with a diverse group of beauty influencers to drive website traffic and eCommerce sales of select products.
In-Store Product placement
Sacha Cosmetics aim for Europe was to have more physical selling points. Although the shelf placement space is a difficult market to break through we took the negotiation part on us.
Our social media strategy was really based on being accessible and transparant with the new audience. We wanted the consumers to get a realistic idea on what Sacha Cosmetics products had to offer.
This challenge had to encouraged people to share their products with those close to them through word of mouth while also getting consumers excited about makeup by compelling them to send in videos.
The social media posts mainly consisted of;
- Behind the scene footage of the production of Sacha Cosmetics products.
- Various giveaways.
Even though all public acclaims of average consumers benefits the brand, publishing testimonials from beauty influencers produces more effective content than publishing commentary from any one of those above sources on its own.
We reached out to beauty influencers (from different ethnic backgrounds) with a few hundred followers on YouTube and Instagram. We monitored assets in real-time to identify those that generated the most clicks and leveraged those assets to develop traffic-optimized social ads to drive additional audiences to online and offline selling points of Sacha Cosmetic products in the Benelux.
We created pop-ups where consumers were able to test the products and follow workshops by professional make-up artists. We were in charge of the prep work and execution of the set up. Some pop-ups were held at beauty tradeshows but the ones that included workshops took place at rental facilities.
We runned some Facebook ads and designed + distributed flyer invitations at various Sacha Cosmetics selling points. During the pop-up experiences we offered discounts on products, free drinks and nibbles and a goodiebag with testers. On location we did evertything to make our guest feel comfortable while providing sincere advice. After an event took place we did a follow up and contacted the attendees by showing them appreciation and trust.
