Stine Handley, Head of Administration at Fredrik & Louisa
We see good results from the loyalty program. The immediate feedback comes from employees in the store, who notice that customers enter the stores just 5-10 minutes after we send out an SMS. These SMS messages have a big effect. We believe that SMS is the best channel for reaching members, since it is personal and direct.

Cosmetic retail chain with a rapidly growing loyalty program

Fredrik & Louisa is a Norwegian nationwide cosmetic retailer with 50 stores from Kirkenes to Kristiansand, as well as an online store. The first Fredrik & Louisa store was founded in Oslo in 1984, and they sell luxury products from the beauty industry’s leading brands. The Diller team interviewed Stine Handley, Head of Administration at Fredrik & Louisa, to learn about their experience with moving to the Diller loyalty platform in April 2021.

Why did you start with a loyalty program?

First and foremost, we wanted to build loyalty and get closer to our customers, and also to help make it a more conscious decision which cosmetic store a customer end up visiting. We wanted to make a difference and give customers good reasons to come to us. We were very clear about the importance of a good loyalty program – we simply saw the need.

Our goal is to create shopping experiences that hopefully exceed the expectations of our customers. We try to run our loyalty program in a way that makes our customers feel it is both enjoyable and useful to be a member.

The loyalty program is a marketing platform that is part of our marketing budget. The communication to club members via SMS and email reaches customers more directly than many other marketing channels. It is cost effective and works well for us.

What kind of results have you seen so far?

We see good results from the loyalty program. The immediate feedback comes from employees in the store, who notice that customers enter the stores just 5-10 minutes after we send out an SMS. These SMS messages have a big effect. We believe that SMS is the best channel for reaching members, since it is personal and direct. We make sure to have a good mix of email newsletters and promotions by SMS, so that customers don’t get too many inquiries from us, because we don’t want to “bother” them.

We send SMS campaigns every month with a good offer and a simple message. We see that this is effective, and that customers are responding by visiting our stores and shopping with us.

Do you have examples of successful campaigns?

Campaigns with a 30% discount on an optional item or category campaigns with for example a good skincare offer are always very successful. Once you get the customer into the store, there will often be upsell opportunities of other items, so we see that such promotions pay off in a good way.

We also believe that there may be good potential in inviting loyal customers at a certain bonus level to e.g. skincare events in the store or other relevant and exclusive events. It definitely doesn’t always have to be discounts that drive loyalty. A combination of discounts and exclusive events is quite effective. We look forward to doing more of this going forward.

How important is it that Diller is integrated with the POS / cash register?

It was simply essential!

What do you think of the cooperation between you, Diller and Dekon?

Diller was recommended to us by Fredrik Halvorsen in Dekon,which is our supplier of cash register systems. It’s been an excellent collaboration between the parties. In particular, I’d like to mention Knut Ole Hauge in Diller, who has been phenomenal in assisting us through the process.

How did you get started —and how do you recruit new club members?

We started with Diller in April 2021 and we are very pleased with the recruitment of new members to the loyalty program. We had 85,000 members from our previous loyalty member database when we started, and after only six months we have doubled this to 170,000 customers in our membership base.

Recruitment of new members takes place in our stores, and all employees ask customers if they want to become a member. They mention the welcome coupon, which is a 30% discount on an optional item, and that members save 2.5% bonus every time they shop. We see that this works really well.

What do you think about the potential of segmenting the member base?

We believe that it’s important and that it will enable us to create really good concepts and benefits for our members. We look forward to addressing this more going forward. Both segmentation on demographics and interests, but also campaigns based on purchase history are interesting. For example, it might be good to have campaigns towards non-active customers with a good offer to encourage a revisit to their local store.

What is your vision for the loyalty program going forward?

Today’s consumers aren’t necessarily super loyal, so it’s important to have a loyalty program that makes them enjoy shopping with us. We always have great offers, but we also try to create good shopping experiences. If a customer leaves the store with a bag full of products, it is a happy and satisfied customer who has had a good customer experience.

We believe that we will have around 250,000 members by next year, and it is more important to us that we have active customers than to have as many members as possible. We look forward to developing the loyalty program, to make sure that it’s an important part of creating these great shopping experiences.

"Alle mulige tredjepartskanaler blir mindre og mindre effektive, og vi ser at det er nødvendig fremover å eie dialogen med kunder. Jeg er ikke i tvil om at mye av veksten vår skyldes økt lojalitet fra medlemmer."

Kai Gulbrandsen

Adm.dir. i Princess-kjeden

"Kundeklubb-knappen ligger på forsiden i kassen, så alt går automatisk. Medlemmer våre benytter klippekortene og kupongene, fordi det er så enkelt å bruke. Vi ser at vi har høy omsetning på medlemmer."

Evy Ingebrigtsen

Operations and HR Manager, Baker Brun

"Data er det nye gullet. Det er vesentlig at kjøpsinformasjon og kundedata er fundamentet for alle gode kundedialoger. Å ha kontroll på dette, er etter min mening helt avgjørende."

"Med en kundeklubb blir vi mye bedre kjent med kundene og kan lage godt materiell og relevant innhold for dem. Dette er veldig viktig. Vi slipper alle mid season-salg og kan heller belønne dem som velger oss over tid."

Tobias Tjørstad

General Manager, Linestore

"Det var både raskt og enkelt å sette opp lojalitetsprogrammet, og Dillers kundeservice-team er fantastisk. Vi ser frem til å få glede av programmet i tiden fremover, slik at vi kan få enda mer lojale og fornøyde kunder!"

Julia Dyblie

Daglig leder, Milla Web

"Vi ser at snittsalget og marginer er høyere til tross for at vi gir en 10% velkomstrabatt. Man tar jo gjerne med seg litt ekstra i handlevognen for å mest mulig ut av rabatten. Målet er at kundeklubben skal være prikken over i’en for kundene våre, slik at de ønsker å fortsette å handle hos oss."

Jon Grøteig Andersen

Markedssjef i PetXL

"Vi ser gode resultater av lojalitetsprogrammet. De umiddelbare tilbakemeldingene kommer fra ansatte i butikk, som merker at det kommer kunder inn i butikkene bare 5-10 minutter etter at vi sender ut en SMS."

Stine Handley

Administrasjonsleder i Fredrik & Louisa

"Man er jo alltid spent før lansering av et nytt system. Det som umiddelbart kom frem da vi gikk over til en digital kundeklubb, var at det ble svært godt mottatt av butikkene, fordi det er så enkelt i bruk."

Lene Sagenes

Markedsansvarlig, Olivenlunden

"Med kundeklubben har vi fått flere faste kunder som handler oftere. Det betyr godt potensial for mersalg av tilleggsprodukter, og dermed høyere omsetning og bedre marginer. Det er vi veldig godt fornøyde med."

Ida Marie Juliussen

Distriktssjef og markedsansvarlig, Funky Frozen Yogurt

"Vi har sett at det ikke bare er rabatter som tiltrekker seg kunder. For eksempel fungerer det bra når vi sender ut SMS om at nye produkter har kommet fra et av merkene våre. Da øker trafikken til butikken, siden medlemmene gjerne får tidlig produktinformasjon."

Martine Remsøy Romøren

Butikksjef, Lively Home på Fornebu og Røa

"Den store fordelen med kundeklubben er at det blir enkelt å kommunisere med kundene. Vi ser uendelige muligheter med dette i fremtiden og ser frem til å bruke det mer."

Anders Johan Braaten

Daglig leder i butikkjeden Buster Hund og Katt

"Jeg søkte rundt på nettet etter leverandører og fant Diller på den måten. De har alt jeg trenger i et lojalitetsprogram, og for meg var det en ekstra fordel at det er et norsk selskap."

Hans Hvinden

Daglig leder,

"Når kunder handler i butikken, spør vi dem om de vil bli medlemmer og fortelle dem at de får gavesjekker etter et visst forbruk, invitasjoner til arrangementer og andre fordeler. Ingen sier nei!"
