How to win new consumers?
• We developed new events around regional customs like “jamai sashthi” in Kolkata,
• To enhance reach beyond the 90 cities that Big Bazaar operates in – introduced a loyalty programme
• The program merges online with human interfaces – by using franchisees to deliver last mile connectivity.
How do you win customers
Rajiv Nair, Celio Future Fashion Limited
We do a year worth of work that actually reaches to customers. The same product which are sold in France are available here in India too except some seasonal offerings. Indian customers are value conscious and we too don’t belong to ultra premium category
We have a socially integrated loyalty programme on mobile platform to know more about customers. The program connects customers across the world who are talking about the brand, Celio rewards the customer for being social – consumers can accumulate points.
Social as a platform to win customers
Uma Talreja, Trent Ltd
Social programs in Retail companies need the product and marketing teams to work together to drive success.
Social can drive traffic to the store – provided it’s supported by location and in-store experience.
Finally, the tone of voice on Social – can help attract customers to the brand and store experience.
Social media to win consumers
Effective use of Facebook can lead you to hear the voice of the customers, be it for a new product launch or making a crucial business decision
Relevance of Social Media
It’s important to have a mechanism to accurate measure voice and velocity on social media.
That framework allows brands to decide on the ROI of spend on social
Ebay sells products of big retailers as well as very small retailers who employ 2-3 persons. They all reach out to the 4306 cities where we have consumers in India as well as exports in 201 countries around the globe.
Ecommerce as a channel?
The importance lies in pushing the brand thoughts across the channels as a seamless exercise so that the brand is appreciated as the most preferred brand amongst the customers. That should be the core of the strategy.
Role of Technology
