Xhibition – bonus scheme
Xhibition Shopping Centre in Bergen has had a customer membership scheme in place since 2009. They wanted a concept that was more aligned with the type of centre they are – exclusive stores situated in the city centre. It was also crucial to determine who the most loyal customers are and do something extra to look after them. Part of the solution was to divide the membership scheme into three segments – gold, silver and bronze. Customers who shop there want to receive discounts like everyone else but may be less interested in showing an SMS or voucher when making a purchase.
New bonus scheme with points accrual
The solution was an extensive bonus scheme linked to the cash transaction system in the stores to collect points data. This allows customers to access customer benefits based on the number of points accrued either as a gold, silver or bronze member. This type of delayed reward is even more of a contributor when it comes to generating loyalty over time.
New customer membership platform – the app
In order to tie the entire concept together, the bonus scheme was integrated in the shopping centre app, which now acts as the core of the loyalty concept. In the app there is content for “everyone” as well as content intended for customer members only.

The Apotek 1 chain is Norway’s largest pharmacy chain, with more than 400 pharmacies.
The chain wanted to relaunch its customer membership club, with a focus on succeeding with the mobile segment and also bringing the operation of the entire concept to one supplier.
After having established a new strategy for how the customer membership club will be the hub of the chain’s digital communication, the customer membership club launched during autumn 2015 with a new database structure, new registration solutions and a brand new application.
The relaunch was a formidable success and the chain gained 50,000 new members in just three months. With a very high number of downloaded apps, the chain is positioned as a winner within its industry, including when it comes to mobile customer communication.

Utopia – effective recruitment via Facebook Bridge
Utopia shopping center in Umeå ran a coupon campaign 7. – 17. December 2018.
Before the campaign, Utopia had just over 2000 members. During this campaign, they managed to recruit 1733 new members, in only 10 days!
How did they do it?
Naked Juice Bar offered FREE smoothie to all new- and existing members. Customers seem to love free stuff since this generated 992 used coupons out of 1500 in total.
They ran a Facebook campaign (via Boostcom of course), where we created three different segments: women (non-members), men (non-members) and members. The non-members were so-called “mirror” segments mirroring the attributes of the members in the existing database.
The Facebook campaign cost Utopia NOK 10 000,- in total.
Members were exposed to information about the campaign and received information about offers relevant to their demographics (that they not had redeemed already). Non-members were exposed to the “register here” link.
Cost per new member via Facebook was NOK 15,-
Unique impressions: 30 919 people
1 742 people clicked on the link
648 new members were recruited via Facebook in 10 days.
1733 new recruited members to the loyalty club in total during the campaign.
During this campaign we used Boostcom´s tool Facebook Bridge, to create the mirror audience. Boostcom DMP & Advanced Audience manager provide live audiences to
Facebook for targeted advertising based on members demographics and behavior. This is a GDPR compliant way to create these segments and the only way to use member data up against Facebook and still be GDPR compliant after May 2018.
Success criteria for this campaign:
• Combination of free offerings, good offers, and recruitment often generates great results
• The format: video ad
• The right target audience was targeted via Facebook
