Nick – suggested words around this… to prove the academic point just made by The Boston Consulting Group, TNT Post has been running a number of trials with its clients to demonstrate this offline to online effect. Normally when we run campaigns for traditional retailers our challenge is to identify their store catchments. With this brief, for the Entertainer we had to deliberately target as far away from their stores as possible to isolate the impact of their Christmas catalogue. Understandably, between 2009 and 2010 they registered an increase in sales through TheToyShop.com of 18.7% based on the fact that more people are shopping online these days. However, in the specific areas that received their 2010 catalogue they saw a remarkable 64% sales growth.
We firstly identify shoppers who have been exposed to the campaign in question – this is the Test Group A Control Group is then matched to the Test Group on various measures including spend on the brand, spend within the category, frequency of purchase and profiling. This means that both groups are identical in terms of shopper profile and spending habits prior to the activity and so the only difference between them is that one has been exposed to the mailing and one hasn’t. This ‘test and control’ method strips out all other factors which may affect shopping behaviour as both groups are exposed to the same elements (i.e. product price, national TV, season events etc) and is the most robust and accurate way of measuring campaign performance. We can therefore attribute any difference in sales and shopper measures to the campaign being evaluated.
Technology is changing our world, changing media preferences, forcing us to adapt, innovate and change. Examples of how technology forces change: Consumers want access to information on the go, in store Consumers demand convenience Consumers rely on independent information sources of their choice: the internet, blogs Digital coupons attract a better educated and more affluence consumer segment than paper coupons Rather than choosing one or the other (digital) media channel, the full mix has to be offered to cater to the communication needs of all shoppers. Consumers want to be addressed consistently and with relevant content. Essential is to choose the right underpinning technology which enables an integrated approach, meaning integration of on-line, in-store and off line, to achieve consistency which can accommodate add-ons for evolving new technology which makes the multi-channel approach easy to manage.

52. Coupon Lifecycle
53. Coupon’s are EvolvingTraditional Paper Based Coupons Digital Innovation NFC
54. Shoppers increasingly use a mix of digital media to prepare the shopping tripConsumer Choice is Widening Mobile SMS Text Email Mobile Apps Social Media Website
55. Near Field Communication Near Field Communication (NFC)• NFC is a short range wireless technology that exchanges data simply and securely between two electronic devices• A simple wave or touch can establish an NFC connection between 2 devices that are within 4cms of one another• NFC can be used with a variety of devices – but the main talking point at the moment is around its use in mobile phones
56. More consumers are using coupons• Valassis managed 340 million coupon redemptions in 2011 - this is an increase of 22% over 2010 when the number was 277 million• Volumes have grown 40% in two years and 60% in the last 5 years• This growth has come primarily from retailer issued coupons and vouchers which grew 32% and 40% in 2010 and 2011 respectively• The GfK NOP research shows that 72% of consumers use coupons - this was an increase of 11% compared to 2011 (61%)
57. 22% of people are using coupons more than they were a year agoWeighted base: 1717 adults who use coupons when supermarket shopping‘When compared to this time last year would you say you are using more, less or the same amount of coupons when you go supermarketshopping?’
58. Coupon Trends• Redemptions of retailer issued coupons and vouchers grew by 66 million to almost 230 million coupons in 2011• The reasons for this growth are: • Supermarkets are having to compete more aggressively than at any time in recent history, and especially around key seasonal peaks, such as Christmas and Easter – to do this they are using money off vouchers • Loyalty programmes continue to be popular with consumers and provide an effective vehicle for targeted own label and branded goods offers• Redemptions of manufacturer coupons are broadly stable (40m in 2011) – • in recent years there has been a significant shift to using retailer loyalty programmes as the distribution channel• Newspaper subscription coupons continue to decline (23m in 2011) • there have been peaks and troughs in the last five years. In 2009 we saw the volumes as high as 40m, almost 60% higher than the previous three years.
59. Coupon Trends• The average coupon value grew from £0.90 in 2010 to £1.01 in 2011. • This average value excludes money off vouchers which can be used against total basket spend • The increase reflects the competitive environment where brands and retailers are needing to give more away in return for loyalty• Direct mail has the highest redemption rate of more than 6%, although this has declined since 2008, when it was just over 10% • This redemption rate excludes some retailer loyalty mailing schemes where the redemption rate is significantly higher due to finely tuned targeting of the offers • We suspect the decline is due to less emphasis on targeting than in previous years• Coupons and vouchers distributed through magazines and newspapers, as might be expected, given the nature of their distribution, have the lowest redemption rates of around 0.5% • This is compounded by reduction in daily newspaper sales and coverage
60. Average Redemption Rates by Distribution Media
61. The coupon market today - overall summary• Consumers are using more coupons • Seen in both Valassis’ redemption data and by market research - 40% growth in Valassis redemptions in three years • Consumers are looking to use coupons more than a year ago • Higher level and becoming less loyal to retailers• Consumer confidence, although relatively high, is falling for all social grades • Confidence is related to social grade - the higher the social grade, the more confident • The less affluent the group … - the less confident they are - and the more their confidence has worsened
62. Coupon Trends 74% of wealthier AB shoppers plan to use money-off vouchers when Christmas shopping Contrary to stereotypes, this research indicates that it is the wealthier AB consumers who are savvier shoppers − 74% of this demographic plan to use money-off vouchers, compared to an average of 59% 66% of AB shoppers plan to use the favoured mechanic, ‘money off product coupons’. Over 1 in 4 (26%) of AB shoppers are looking for more promotional offers than this time last year. 42% of shoppers plan to shop in more stores to redeem all the store specific coupons and vouchers that they have − This is most prominent among the 16 – 34 age group (59%), behaviour they are likely to continue as they get older. 17% of shoppers will be more likely to use a different supermarket (i.e. not their main one), this year than at the same time last yearWeighted base: 219 adultsLatest consumer insight from Valassis – GfkNOP research findings (Fieldwork conducted 18th – 20th Nov 2011)
63. Coupon Trends• 30% of consumers will shop away from their main supermarket this year, because other retailers are advertising better offers • On a similar survey before Christmas 2011, only 17% planned to ‘shop away’ at Christmas • 36% of women will shop away from their main supermarket• We appear to be seeing lower levels of loyalty, helped by, for example • ‘brand matching’ promotions • aggressive pricing in supermarkets• 9% will not change their shopping behaviour• For 6% of consumers, offers in other supermarkets make no difference
64. Deal hungry consumers turn to promotions to drive down costs this Christmas 78% of shoppers will use a promotional offer when doing their grocery shopping this Christmas. 54% of shoppers will use 3 or more mechanics when doing their Christmas grocery shopping. The favoured mechanic to drive down costs when Christmas grocery shopping was ‘money off product coupons’, with 65% of shoppers planning to use these.Weighted base: 991 adultsLatest consumer insight from Valassis – GfkNOP research findings (Fieldwork conducted 18th – 20th Nov 2011)
65. In summary Almost 1 in 5 shoppers (18%) are worried about how much money they will spend on their Christmas grocery shopping 78% of shoppers will use a promotional offer when doing their Christmas grocery shopping The favoured mechanic was ‘money off products coupons’ − 65% of shoppers plan to use them when doing their Christmas grocery shopping Wealthy AB consumers use vouchers more than the average consumer, 79% versus an average of 59%As a result......... Worryingly for retailers, only 8% of shoppers would remain loyal to their supermarket of choice if others retailers were offering better discounts at Christmas.Latest consumer insight from Valassis – GfkNOP research findings (Fieldwork conducted 18th – 20th Nov 2011)
