360 Degree Engagement With Rewards Program

360 Degree Engagement With Rewards Program

Yon-Ka Paris used Zinrelo to improve customer engagement. Customers were offered multiple point earning opportunities with simple actions to create 360-degree engagement such as purchase on website, account creation, writing reviews, sharing on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

The points could be redeemed for discount coupons or free products. A mix of discounts and freebies ensured that customers were motivated to take actions to earn points.

Bonus Point Promotions During Slow Season

Yon-Ka Paris offered bonus points for customers who made a purchase during their slow seasons e.g. a double points promotion. These strategies helped Yon-Ka increase their sales during slow season, thus smoothening sales seasonality.

Tier-Based Rewards Program to Engage Customers

Reward tiers based on various customer segments helped drive higher participation in the rewards program.  After reaching a certain number of points, a customer is upgraded to the next tier and receives exclusive benefits from that tier. The three tiers were Beauty Enthusiast, Beauty Guru and Beauty Master. They were designed to offer users a reason to move to higher tiers.
