(MENAFN- Media OutReach Newswire) HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 24 November 2023 - Reckitt Hong Kong was awarded Bronze in "Best eCommerce Campaign - Content Marketing" and shortlisted for the newly launched category of "Best Use of Analytics and Data Insights" at Marketing Interactive's Asia eCommerce Awards 2023, recognising an exemplary performance of the Customer Review eCommerce Campaign, in which the refined ad targeting strategies and ad content with a "human touch" drove a significant growth of 533% in ROAS in June, compared to the average of offer-centric eCommerce campaigns from January to May 2023. The recognitions are testaments to Reckitt's efforts in putting consumers first and its ongoing commitment to constantly seeking out new opportunities effectively to cater to the evolving market needs. The campaign successfully captured the interest of the target segment and built up confidence in Reckitt's brands and products with the help of genuine reviews embedded into the promotional ad messaging.
Reckitt is recognised for its success in leveraging data and analytics to drive positive outcomes
To drive hygiene awareness and cleaning product usage to encourage Hong Kong people to maintain good hygiene in a post-COVID environment, Reckitt scaled up its eCommerce efforts by launching promotional ad campaigns for its household hygiene brands Dettol, Vanish, and Woolite this year. It leveraged the shopper profile insights from research data to identify the potential gaps in its advertising strategies targeting younger audiences to maximise the ad campaign's effectiveness. The insights showed that younger consumers most likely had less experience with household cleaning and were, therefore, more likely to stick with their current cleaning products and brands. The insights offered a solid foundation for the ad campaigns. Reckitt turned the analytics into action by expanding its ad targeting to include interest filters that engage light and younger user segments and refining the retargeting lines to exclude audiences who regularly purchase Reckitt's products online, as well as adopting a more soft-selling approach to their advertisements which appeal to the younger audiences.
Reckitt included real user reviews in ads, providing audience with brand confidence
Reckitt's growth strategy is anchored to consumer demand, leading to creating an ad campaign with a personal and engaging touch by incorporating genuine user reviews in a more vital way to cater to the target segment's needs and behaviours. The goal was to increase the confidence of Reckitt's product brands, especially among new target groups in the final stages of their buying journey. Reckitt adopted a social commerce approach to include Customer Reviews on Meta to achieve this goal in June. It featured real user feedback, ratings, and product usage tips within the ads, which significantly differed from the previous strategies solely driven by offers and discounts. As a result of the campaign, Reckitt recorded an expansion in younger users between the ages of 25 and 39 by nine percentage points compared with previous promotions. The redefined strategy helped Reckitt establish a more personal connection with its target audience, driving higher engagement and sales.
