Consumer Promotional Programs

An effective consumer promotion from a leading tyre manufacturer

Agro-Industry Trade Promotion Program Microsite, Major win! Our client is a subsidiary of a French multinational tyre manufacturing company headquartered in Gurgaon, India. Requirement: The client is running a consumer promotion for their end customers on their passenger car tyres, where they needed an efficient way to run the program smoothly and swiftly. Solution: Qwikcilver customized a solution to meet the program's needs and developed a login-based Microsite to help generate vouchers and monitor transactions. Here's how the program works:
  • Client provided us with a pan-Indian database of dealers, phone numbers, and consolidated wallet balances.
  • As this is a limited-time offer, each dealer receives a specific wallet balance.
  • Dealers will register the Customer details and warranty card number through the above site to issue the Amazon Vouchers after the purchase of 2 or more tyres.
  • Amazon voucher for 500 is issued on purchasing 2 or 3 tyres and 1000 for 4 or above tyres.
  • Amounts are deducted from respective dealer wallets, and the available balance is updated for future transactions. Dealers are deactivated once all wallet money has been consumed.
  • Clients can log in to monitor all transactions, extract reports, and create/bulk load users.

Impactful loyalty program to reward loyal respondents.

Most Effective Survey Incentives to Boost Survey Response Rate! Our client is the world's leading data, insights, and consulting company. They help their clients understand people and inspire growth. Globally and locally, they understand people: how they think, feel, and act. Research syndicated by our client provides a deep understanding of the Indian consumer, including their category buying behavior, brand choices, digital behavior, and media choices. Requirement The client wanted to reward their selected panelists for contributing to the market research survey via an engaging loyalty program. Solution: Survey incentives are invaluable to the online survey experience; market researchers and business owners benefit by implementing them into their surveys to increase participation. In order to enhance engagement, Qwikcilver created a login-based QwikRewards microsite with 15 digital brands added to the program catalogue as part of the pilot, offering participants a more diverse selection of rewards as opposed to only distributing samples or involving them in games that are time-consuming. Here's how the program works:
  • Using their registered mobile number, the user logs into the microsite selects the brand(s) and places an order.
  • A Brand voucher is sent to the user via SMS and/or email.
  • Brand catalogs are carefully curated with the region of the target users in mind.
  • Redemptions have begun and are being closely monitored.
As a result: Almost 6000 users have already signed up, and their reward accounts have already been credited with points. The client intends to scale up the target group and make the loyalty program available to panelists across India soon.
