The digital age has changed how consumers research, buy, and interact with brands. If consumers have changed how they buy, businesses must evolve in their marketing and consumer engagement with customers.

As the world of marketing evolves, so does consumer behavior. With the rise of e-commerce and digital connectivity, customers are not only looking for products; they’re seeking experiences.

Physical retail products in brick-and-mortar shops need to stand out from the rest of the products. Interesting and aesthetically-pleasing packaging can enhance brand value and help visually attract a customer. However, attractive packaging is just the one touchpoint in marketing.

At Nabcore, we understand the importance of engaging customers throughout their journey. From that first glance at your product on the shelf to the moments they share their satisfaction online, every interaction matters. Our focus is on crafting solutions that create lasting impressions, foster trust, and keep your brand at the forefront of your customers’ minds. In today’s fast-paced marketplace, it’s not just about selling; it’s about building enduring relationships with consumers.

Social media posts, advertisements and other promotional activities form other touchpoints. Before making a purchase, consumers also want more information about a product before taking out their wallet or opening their payment app. 

Brand owners must find ways to create multiple touchpoints in order to attract and ultimately convert a customer.

Subsequently, engagement post-purchase is essential to build customer loyalty and advocacy. This can be achieved through meaningful and interesting engagement with the help of smart packaging or product labels.

Our technology approach to marketing engagement is to use an “Attract, Engage and Excite” formula that has proven successful for multiple brands in 7 countries.

Excite: Through loyalty programS

Innovative customer loyalty program with a game-element and incentives can be a powerful form of post-purchase marketing engagement. 

Loyalty programs that reward customers and provide a fun game element that increases the chances of rewards is a great way to engage with customers post-purchase.

Using a smart brand protection solution that combines protect authentication with rewards for consumers. 

For example, if consumers receive a reward after authenticating their product purchase, this can be an incentive to purchase from the brand repeatedly. This “sticky” form of marketing engagement helps the brand owners gain recurring revenue and strengthen their brand recognition and recall in the consumers’ minds.

Example of Loyalty Program with rewards point redemption

    • Unique QR codes can be added to the product packaging or labels.
    • Consumers are encouraged and incentivised to scan the QR code with their mobile device to authenticate the product that they are going to purchase.
    • Upon scanning, consumers can also register as members of a loyalty program where they can earn points to redeem rewards after purchase. The incentive helps to lock in customers in the long haul as consumers will be going back to purchase more products to accumulate points for rewards. 

It is possible to create unique variable QR codes that are allowed to be scanned only once. This is a perfect application for lucky draw campaigns such as WeChat’s red packet engagement campaign.
