  8. 8. 19/3/14 © wauwaa.com Market and how do we approach it?
  9. 9. 19/3/14 © wauwaa.com Humanisation of commerce We approach and communicate with our users “personally” Content drives the Wauwaa experience across all mediums – a reason to visit, learn, laugh, share… and shop! • Social has less than 5 minute response times to posts or messages • We Engage with content and products throughout our social media presence • Product reviews and blogs from the parent community • Present our brands for what they are – special! • Proactive customer service communications about the status of your order. Written by a human, not a script, for the situation and person we are communicating with • No customer is unimportant! • We engage the user and do whatever we can / must to make sure they have an amazing experience. If we fail in any way we own that failure, tell them and make amends proactively! • We don’t die by the rules, we think on our feet and act as we would want to be treated One of our competitors claims that they are a part of the customers life. But all they offer is something to buy - shopping. If that is being part of your customers life, that seems a bit shallow…
  10. 10. 19/3/14 © wauwaa.com How do we attract the customer? The “browse and discover” model • Provide merchandise that delivers value for money, quality and uniqueness • A constant “freshness” of products mixed with unique and interesting always available products • Make wauwaa.com a “HABIT” – Deliver a reason to visit every day, be that content viewership or shopping. Drive impulse discovery and buying behaviour. The visitor to the site does not have to be “intent” on buying. • Wauwaa serves the browse and discover shopper best but also will have a comprehensive offering across baby, toddler and kids so that the shopper has confidence that they can get what they need
  11. 11. 19/3/14 © wauwaa.com Content difference We create and use great content to add value to the user and open completely unique marketing opportunities... Creating or curating great content isn’t easy but it is worthwhile... Increases our discovery reach – Services like Taboola Diversifies the marketing message from “BUY” to “Learn” Gives the user another reason to visit the site and share Social media engagement is increased through content We approach content through three main drivers - Own production “Parents for Parents” talking about their experiences - Bloggers Diverse topics, reach through their networks, curated by us - Licensed In our case the NHS Content library of videos
