Revlon GWP

Revlon
Gift-with-Purchase

Revlon wanted to increase their cosmetic sales at Walgreens before Valentine’s Day.

CosPro Marketing implemented a gift-with-purchase including a foil stamped gift box with ribbon, retractable Revlon lip brush, Revlon Super Lustrous Love Is On Lipstick and coupon booklet. Walgreens customers received the gift with any $20 Revlon cosmetics purchase. The program was such a success that stores ran out earlier than expected!

  • Over $30K in sales with a 1 week sell-through

Customer Engagement Kits

Customer
Engagement Kits

Chain stores and vendors want a way to provide associates with sampling and education tools but do not have the resources to do it on their own.

CosPro Marketing specializes in launch kits and on-going interaction and education kits for store associates. Kits normally contain custom designed training materials, easel cards or tester/sample displays, coupons, brochures, gift-with-purchase items along with product samples and testers. These are distributed either via a shared vendor monthly beauty box that goes DSD or to the chain’s DC’s or mail bag.

  • More than 3.6 million interaction kits shipped without missing a deadline
  • 100 million+ samples distributed in-store to date
  • Saved Walgreens vendors more than $3 million annually in shipping costs
  • 25% coupon redemption rate vs. 1% for FSI coupons and 2.7% for digital coupons

Kinney GWP Sample Bag

Gift with Purchase

The program included custom printed sleeve with product images/description, 10 samples, a coupon book, and a shelf dangler to promote it on the shelves. The bag was free with any $19.99 beauty purchase or could be purchased at $9.99.

  • 10 brands included

  • Over 1200 bags sold in 2 months

Beauty Advisor Live Training

Beauty Advisor
Live Training

Walgreens needed a new, more efficient way to train their Beauty Advisors. In the past, each brand would hold schools and the Advisors were out a full day per brand. This was costing both the brands and the chain millions of dollars each year, and the ROI couldn’t support that.

CosPro Marketing created a day of training with 20-minute segments dedicated to the NEW items from each brand; providing the Advisors with easy to remember points of difference per product. The training day consisted of demonstrating hands-on techniques, customer role playing and LIVE quizzing via our Audience Response System. CosPro Marketing also created a follow along bi-lingual training manual, certificates, and gifts for attendees.

  • Saved chain & vendors $6 million+ annually
  • Lowest training cost per participant
  • Average grade was 89%
  • 6500 advisors trained in 6 weeks in 130 regions
  • 9.4/10 rating by those surveyed
