Digitally Native Gen Z Still Prefers to Shop In-Store

Posted by Andrea Welzien on Friday, May 5th, 2017

Digitally Native Gen Z Still Prefers to Shop In-Store-CPIA recent study shows that Generation Z­­­—the mobile-first generation—prefers to shop in stores rather than online. This opens up a new realm of marketing opportunities for retailers to target this growing demographic. The mobile-first generation is considered those who were born between the late 1990s and the mid-2000s. Estimated to reach 2.6 billion by 2020, this is a demographic you don’t want to forget to target.

Euclid Analytics published a new report, “Evolution of Retail, 2017 Generation Z Shopper Survey,” showing 66% of Gen Z prefer to shop in stores because they like to see, hold & try products before buying.

In addition to trying products before purchasing, 28% actually want to interact with store associates, the most of any generation. Plus, 53% of Generation Z shoppers hit retail stores at least once a week or more.

The study also found though, that Gen Z aims to FIND, not browse for merchandise. 31% said it is hard to find the products they are looking for in brick and mortar stores. This is a great opportunity for retailers to cater their marketing strategies to the generation. Personalization is one way to give Gen Z Shoppers what they’re expecting. 26% say that they want retailers to offer a more personalized shopping experience—this is the most of all demographics, (22% of Millennials prefer personalization, 17% of Gen X, and 11% of Baby Boomers). According to Brent Franson, CEO of Euclid Analytics, “Retailers should reach out to Generation Z at this early stage to introduce their brands and forge enduring relationships.” We know that 89% of first-time purchases are the result of trial or sample, so this is a great way to introduce shoppers to a brand and create loyal customers.

It’s What We Do Best

Our Beauty Experts Sell Product!!!

Posted by Andrea Welzien on Thursday, May 4th, 2017

CPI_DemoAt a recent Rite Aid Grand Opening Event featuring multiple cosmetic brands, CosPro Agency Beauty Experts racked up the sales! They performed 30 mini-makeovers and nail polish changes and sold 40 pieces of product—that’s a 138% closure rate! Beauty Experts introduced shoppers to Jesse’s Girl Nail Polish and L’Oréal Cosmetics, and gave each a personalized demonstration. Women of all ages were excited to receive the complimentary manicures and makeovers, and they loved being able to try the products before purchasing.

The event was great for brand awareness, as many customers had not tried the featured products prior to the demonstration. The 4-hour event was a success, with Beauty Experts selling product during almost every demo performed. They were also able to train eight store associates on the L’Oréal and Jesse’s Girl brands to help increase future sales.

Cosmetic Promotions Provides Intangible
Job Perks for Employees

Posted by Andrea Welzien on Tuesday, February 14th, 2017 recently featured Cosmetic Promotions in their article “5 Perks Your Employees Will Actually Care About“. Cosmetic Promotions employee, Copelyn Calmer, writes about her experience searching for a company with the perfect job perks:

Copelyn-Calmer2College job seekers, including myself, are looking beyond the paychecks and salaries – hoping for incentives that will aid us to become healthier, happier, and more productive within our lives and careers. According to, 57 percent of job seekers say benefits and perks are their top considerations before accepting a job. The most common perks of interest include wellness programs, complimentary food, mobile/remote working, flexible hours, paying for graduate school, student loan reimbursement, and insurance and retirement plans.

As a full-time student seeking a genuine career, I was looking for more than free coffee. After months of scouring the job market, I found Cosmetic Promotions – an experiential marketing and advertising company that resonated with all of my goals. Loving the beauty field and having a huge interest in experiential marketing is what first caught my attention. The ability to indulge my passion for beauty and learn all about direct product-to-consumer marketing while getting to work with global retailers and manufacturers such as Walgreens, CVS, P&G, Coty and others was a dream made real for me.

beauty-basketThe job perks at Cosmetic Promotions are awesome as well as unique. I get to try scads of different beauty products while enjoying flexible work schedules, travel opportunities, the ability to work remotely, as well as working directly with the CEO and senior management team. Plus, they tapped into my role as a college student and had me create college sampling programs that I will be able to help implement. All this from day one on the job! These perks provided me with tremendous networking opportunities and make visible and meaningful contributions to the company, challenging me to realize to my fullest potential every day. I consider these as rewards for my efforts, not just fringe benefits.

Ultimately, I believe the best perks for job seekers to search for are the intangibles: experience, networking and work-life balance. Although free coffee and wellness programs are common perks for businesses today, they don’t really add to your career development. Job seekers have to search for perks that will motivate them and add value to their experience within a company and in their careers. Perks and benefits can contribute to a great workplace environment if done correctly, but job seekers need to determine if offered perks are replacing salaries or limiting the real experience they can earn.
