Customer Engagement Kits

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


Beauty Consultant Kiosk – Emma

Interactive Beauty Consultant Kiosk – Emma

Rite Aid did not have Beauty Consultants in all stores and needed a way for customers to get answers to their questions at any time.

CosPro Marketing created and implemented a test program for a Beauty Consultant Kiosk – Emma. Emma was an easy-to-use touch screen kiosk that helped consumers choose products and get up to date advice. While one full-time beauty associate would cost a store about $30,000 per year in salary, Emma was there 24/7 at a cost of less than $3,000 per year. CosPro Marketing created the back-end software system so that the vendors involved in the program could add products, videos and images on their own.

  • Estimated savings of $27K per year per store!
  • Reliable data updated daily
  • Accessible all store hours

  • Over 1200 bags sold in 2 months
