Online Retailers Need To Ensure Customers Have The Best Post-Purchase Experience

May 24, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Online retailers need to focus on the post-purchase experience in order to retain customers. For example, beauty retailer Sephora's success is driven by its sustained efforts to connect a shopper's experience throughout the whole customer process across digital, mobile, and brick-and-mortar stores channels. Also, Sephora provides customers with branded delivery tracking page and updates on product recommendations, deals, and editorial content. There are four ways retailers can provide customers with the best post-purchase experience: continuing the conversation; providing shoppers with relevant, personalized information; turning a bad customer experience into an amazing experience; and creating an organizational environment that helps enhance a post-purchase experience.

Half Of Men Shopping For Grooming Products Do Research Before Making Purchases, Survey Says

May 23, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Among men shopping for grooming products, 50 percent said they research for information, including consumer reviews online, before buying, according to WSL Strategic Retail, New York. Results of the How America Shops Switch-Swap-Trade 2016 report revealed those 50 percent who access information before buying do not change their mind about which to buy once they are in the store. Also, 34 percent of respondents said they are loyal to one brand when shopping for men’s grooming products, an increase of 2 percent from the 2014 report. Brand loyalty could be driven by price; however, other characteristics, such as a particular fragrance, could keep consumers coming back.

May 23, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Asia-Pacific’s market for cosmetics is forecast to reach $126.8 billion by 2020, with a CAGR of more than 4 percent during the period, according to Apacmarket.com. Japan, the region’s top market, accounted for 28 percent of the total beauty market in 2014; however, other countries are fast catching up. Recognizing the trend, international brands are focusing on the region. For example, L’Oreal, which has been operating for more than 20 years in India, grew its local business by creating R&D centers in Mumbai and Bangalore. Factors driving growth in the region include the importance of skincare and makeup in letting women project their social status and the increase in cosmetics education and focus on one’s appearance brought about by social media.

Amazon Eyes To Grab Share Of Baby Care And Laundry Detergent Markets From Procter & Gamble

May 19, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Online retailer Amazon plans to expand its private-label lineup by offering diapers and laundry detergent under its Mama Bear brand. Amazon's planned move will see it compete with Procter & Gamble, owner of some of the bestselling brands in those categories. While P&G trails rivals Kimberly-Clark and Unilever in organic sales performance, its laundry care lines, including Tide, and baby care products, driven by the Pampers brand, have been performing strongly in the US. Although Amazon could heavily promote its Mama Bear brand, it is likely to find it hard to compete with P&G in terms of product innovation and marketing.

Listerine Zero's Global Market Opportunity Could Reach $17 Billion

May 18, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Among the hundred new products Johnson & Johnson is launching in 2016 is Listerine Zero, whose advertising will emphasize going ”beyond germ kill” to fulfill “the human desire to feel fully prepared and fully ready.” The company is trumpeting that message, via professional networks and digital media, to 80 countries, hoping to achieve the same market penetration it has reached in the U.S. If it accomplishes that goal it will add 200 million more households globally, which would triple Johnson & Johnson's business. According to the company's arithmetic, if people in those newly-acquired households “swished” with Listerine Zero five times a day, it would mean a $17 billion market opportunity.

Amazon Finds It Harder To Dominate Online Beauty Retail Market In France

May 16, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
In France, only 16 percent of prestige beauty brands sell their products on Amazon, compared with 56 percent on beauty retailer Sephora, according to market research firm L2. Data from L2's Beauty France Index revealed beauty brands, such as Marionnaud and Nocibe, have created their own digital ecosystems that combine creative content with e-commerce and use their offline store locations to offer shipping and delivery methods. Also, French brands have been able to resist the gray market, more so than their German and UK counterparts were able to.
