Shockwaves

Promo Codes and Online Vouchers

Before going out shopping I'll often look online to see if there are any money off vouchers going around. If Shockwaves did any kind of online reward scheme I'd be more interested in their products.

Vouchers off are a must for any student and money saver. Brand loyalty can be done through loyalty points, vouchers, giving 10% off for every ££ spend is a great way to people coming back.

what about buy a number of products and get free music downloads or for every 10 products you buy get 50% off your next or a free one

Yeah they did something like that at New Look and it worked really well!

I wouldn't be keen on downloads and I think I have a large number of codes I have never redeemed from other products haha but the 50% off or next one free sounds great :p

Promo codes and vouchers are definitely the way to go, maybe provide vouchers catered to your needs based on your personal hair profile and tempt you to try new products!

or what about like you get in coffee houses, a little card and you get it stamped everytime you buy a shockwaves product and the 10th one is free?

Yeah a loyalty scheme would probably work just as well, I was just thinking about some way to get money off because a lot of the time when hunting for products if there's a brand that's maybe a pound or two cheaper I'll get that instead to try and save some money. If you knew you were spending and at the end of it you'd save some money I think that would probably work too.

I like the idea of a loyalty card, but nobody buys their Shockwaves products in a specialist shop, so that means that you would have to 1) always have the card with you and 2) the supermarket/pharmacy would have to agree to implement the scheme and 3) make sure all employees knew about it. I think it's great as an idea but would be far too complicated to organise.

I don't think it would be that hard to orgainise, but I do understand where you're coming from! So do you reckon vouchers instead of loyalty schemes?

The way around this issue would be to have a loyalty card with login details for an online account and then each time you buy a product from shockwaves, you enter a code online :)

This could be a good idea although not every retailer would agree to do this and some customers may be angry that they are missing out.

Shockwaves could have codes on the inside of the cap of the bottle/tube of each product, similar to the way Coca Cola does. You'd then enter the code onto their website and could have the chance to win money off vouchers with the code.

I like the idea of the codes being on the products and entered online. It's kind of like the Disney Rewards Scheme, enter a code, get points and spend the points on rewards!

Exactly! I think this is a good way of doing it because it would mean that everyone - regardless of how many products they bought - could get something back potentially. And it would also mean that it gives people a goal, so the more products they buy the better the reward they could get is.

Lots of brands seem to be taking advantage of the power of promotional tools and reward systems so given the choice between 2 products which are the same but one has a promo code or gives loyalty points, I will take the one which offers more all round benefits :)
