Nomination Title: L’OCCITANE Gift For You

Background:

(X'mas 2016 & Valentine's Day 2017)

Gifting Seasons, incl. Christmas & Valentine’s Day are always the peak of sales for retail market.

“L’OCCITANE Gift for You” - The online & mobile shopping and gifting site proactively captured target audience’s attention and brought them the complete gifting solution. It integrated online shopping and instant payment with gifting to friends and families, including redemption. This solution created a great and unique value to potential customers, which could differentiate from other online shopping platforms or sites.

Challenges:

-Fierce competition in Christmas & Valentine’s Day - Most of the skincare brands offered seasonal discounts and sales – i.e. many options for consumers, on all retail platforms
-Online shoppers look for a quick and simple solution – Most online shoppers were only willing to spend few seconds to browse for relevant contents. Thus, the purchasing interface must be in a very impressive design and easy to use

Objectives:

Reached and drove sales from potential shoppers via social media platforms

Strategy & Execution:
