The challenges of lower LSM consumer competitions and an ideal prize solution

Lower LSM (Living Standards Measure) consumers are far more difficult to cater for when running competitions. Reason being that lower earning markets have different interests to those of higher income brackets and also less leverage to contribute any additional money (no matter how small) in order to claim or redeem a prize.

The 4 major issues include:

The ideal solution, for markets such as these, is mobile vouchers that can be sent directly to the winner’s phone. Courtesy of advances in till point technology; this is now an option. The consumer simply enters via an SMS short code (as per normal) and if selected as a winner is sent a voucher via their cellular phone that may be redeemed in-store at the pay point.

The vouchers have the capacity to be store specific (redeem at any Checkers), brand specific (redeem your Levi jeans at any Edgars branch) and also have the capacity to offer discounts on specific items (redeem this voucher on your next purchase of product X and receive R10 off your purchase). The technology is not only market changing but offers brands a practical and cost effective solution to lower LSM competitions and promotions.
