In-store Events Turns Shoppers into Buyers for Beauty Brands

Posted by Joann Marks on Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

In-store sampling eventCosmetic Promotions, Inc., a national marketing and promotional company, coordinates monthly and quarterly beauty box programs and assists manufacturers with the development of their launch kits, in-store demo events and Beauty Advisor Programs. The Beauty Box is a kit with materials for store personnel to use to train them on new product launches and interact with customers. Each box contains manufacturer samples, coupons and testers along with point of purchase materials designed and created by Cosmetic Promotions.

Event results revealed that this direct marketing and educating of the store associates has been enormously successful. A recent 6-hour fragrance trial event, executed by store personnel with vendor supplied materials, resulted in a 460% lift for one brand and a 660% lift for the other from the previous Saturday (same store sales). 64% of the Brands’ sales for that week occurred during the event day. Another cosmetic company saw a 658% increase on their items during their event vs. the Saturday before. Cosmetic Promotions created the printed and promotional materials, collated all the items and handled the distribution for both brands. “Everyone knows that direct contact with the consumer is key;” says Joann Marks, CEO of Cosmetic Promotions, Inc., “The challenge is to make sure you are sending a consistent, correct message to your target audience”.

One manufacturer discovered that coupons distributed via a Beauty Box resulted in almost 700% higher redemption than the ones distributed through Dermatologists offices in the same time period. In addition, while most coupons via FSI and other avenues averaged about a 1.5% redemption rate, the ones that went via these Beauty Boxes earned 5.4% redemption.

Cosmetic Promotions also provides live professional training and on-going education via the beauty box, beauty newsletter and monthly quizzes. Their CosPro Agency can also provide professional makeup artists and beauty experts to execute in-store events for chains who don’t have the personnel to do so themselves. Marks adds, “We look for every opportunity to motivate and engage the Beauty Advisors and other store associates”.

Cosmetic Promotions is celebrating its 24th year in Beauty Marketing and works with all the major Beauty Manufacturers and Retailers.
