Make Sainsbury’s Group a credible beauty destination, offering a convenient alternative to other high street specialists. We want to take the confusion out of beauty and skincare, making it easy for customers to understand what they need and find what they want.
Our target customer is digitally savvy and spends time researching and shopping beauty online. For some products they want to talk to an expert in-store or try the product.
We mapped the customer personas against their product preferences, their level of engagement and interest in beauty. And we identified the target customer as Spark my Interest.
They are very much open to digital engagement, willing to explore new products and be inspired by interesting content that feels relevant to them. They require a wide product range with good balance between premium and highstreet brands.
Beauty is about feeling great, not trying to look like someone else which is why we get our best beauty and skincare secrets from our millions beauty enthusiasts. Skincare and makeup don’t need to be complicated which is why we cut through the noise, helping customers find the right routine and providing clear how-to tutorials.
We wanted to test if Argos was able to deliver the experience we ideated with our beauty concept proposition. So we created a series of experiments to validate: brand right to play, online experience and fulfillment. Some of these experiments are still ongoing at present.
