Wilkinson Sword Intuition - Edgewell

How Wilkinson Sword drove further brand awareness and increased consumers' loyalty with Shopmium

context

Wilkinson Sword Intuition is one of the UK'S favourite female shaving products, making female hair removal as quick & easy as possible. Wilkinson Sword partnered with Shopmium to drive brand awareness of their NPD, create usage occasions and recruit new and engaged buyers to the Wilkinson Sword Intuition Complete Razor and Blades products.

Shopmium made it happen

A campaign with 3 waves of activity to boost consumers’ loyalty

 

Wilkinson Sword used Shopmium to raise awareness and increase consumer’s loyalty to the new Intuition Complete Razor and Blades.

Therefore, Shopmium launched a campaign including 3 promotional waves of activity from July to November. The campaign configuration enabled consumers to first buy and trial the Wilkinson Intuition Complete Razor first and then purchase the blades refills during the next waves of activity.

In this approach it enabled Wilkinson Sword to recruit new buyers and drive trial of the razor but furthermore push loyalty and weight on purchase with the additional offer on the blades. The Wilkinson Intuition Complete Blade Refills represented 41% of sales and recruited 92% of new buyers. 

A media plan to increase visibility and show usage

 

In addition, Wilkinson Sword wanted to educate consumers on how to use their Intuition razors and show the quality of their blades. To echo this messaging, Shopmium launched a bepsoke communication plan which included 2 newsletters, Instagram posts/ stories and push notifications, enabling the brand to reach more than 2 million impressions in the app and ensuring further visibility of the campaign.
