The Cosmetic Industry is heavily saturated now and it is crucial for brands to stand out from their competitors and attract sales. One way to captivate potential buyers and gain competitive advantage is by having a well-managed Cosmetic Display Counter. In this case, we’re using NARS Cosmetic’s successful POP Display as an example. They’ve made use of Interactive Technology Marketing to amp up their Cosmetic Display Counter.

What is Interactive Technology Marketing?

Interactive Marketing is the individualization of marketing messages based on consumers’ actions. This will be able to provide highly targeted content to each customer to better meet their needs and wants. Merchandisers can make use of the advanced technology today to adjust marketing contents to suit customers’ tastes and preferences.

  • Many end up not buying lipsticks as they rather not use the testers due to fear of contamination. This Interactive iPad solves all these concerns. They give consumers pleasant shopping experience. The iPad provided at the counter allows consumers to try on lip shades virtually instead of using the actual testers. This might appeal to those who do not want to use the samples provided.
  • This concept will also fascinate those who already have lipstick on and do not wish to remove their lipsticks to try on a lipstick shade. The convenience it provides could be a good selling point.
  • On top of that, the large digital advertising boards at the side present models with NARS’ lipsticks on so consumers could learn more about the product, such as if the product has a glossy / matte finish, and a bright / muted colour.
  • It is also practical for merchandisers to have a Digital POS Display as they are able to easily change the contents without having to remove the entire display. This will allow them to be more cost-efficient in the long-run. Furthermore, merchandisers can also show multiple contents at once because the digital display can show a few contents in intervals.


Possible Improvements?

  • A touchscreen feature can be added to the digital display to better engage consumers. This will build a rapport with customers, as well as a positive experience.
  • The large digital display can also highlight the current beauty promotions or customer loyalty programmes that NARS is offering to attract consumers who are interested in potential savings.
  • A survey can also be given to customers after they have virtually tried on their lipstick shades on the iPad. This way, NARS can have an insight into customers’ demographics and create a more meaningful experience for them.
  • Getting customer information such as phone numbers or email addresses can give NARS an option to send marketing messages to them.

Providing customers with personalised contents based on their reactions and response is a great way to grow your market reach. This makes marketing more effective and efficient towards targeted customer base. It also reduces risk and boosts sales because it focuses on customers’ actions and prospects. This will ensure higher customer satisfaction, thus a higher repeat purchase rate.
