How L'Oreal is Planning to Double its Customer Base to 2 Billion by 2020



Christophe Eymery, Head of Digital, L'Oreal Australia, and a keynote speaker at the marcus evans CMO Summit 2014, on L'Oreal's strategy to reach out to twice its current customer base by 2020.

LONDON, June 5, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - "To reach our ambition for 2020 and double our customer base to two billion, we are focused on key growing markets to get the volume but the fourth pillar of our strategy is to leverage digital and to increase and deliver better beauty education to customers. We believe that will ultimately drive more and higher frequency of purchase, better engagement and longer loyalty with our brands," explains Christophe Eymery, Head of Digital, L'Oreal Australia.

A keynote speaker at the marcus evans CMO Summit 2014, in the Gold Coast, Australia, 18 - 20 August, Eymery gives an overview of L'Oreal's efforts in the digital marketing space.

- What is L'Oreal's digital agenda? What digital channels is L'Oreal focused on?

In every country, each marketing team is focused on the digital agenda. My role is to ensure we have best practices across the whole business, building integrated marketing activities and leveraging digital channels. The digital function goes across all the touch points, the websites we have for our 27 brands in Australia and New Zealand, the social media and branded content destinations, the mobile apps and in-store digital screens.

- How could marketers link Facebook fans to actual customers?

That is an area of high interest to all marketers. Facebook has done some studies on this, but some of them just compared groups of fans to non-fans. It would be more interesting to link data around our fans to retailer loyalty programmes, to not just measure brand purchase intention but cross check data with actual purchases made. That would help us better understand what our Facebook fans expect and what impacts purchase. The social media sphere is still a bit of an unknown, which marketers can exploit further.

- L'Oreal's marketing approach is focused on providing information, rather than branded content based around entertainment. Will this help L'Oreal reach the 2020 target sooner?

Our 2020 target is driven by the philosophy of offering Beauty for All. That is a grand ambition. It means conducting research and manufacturing products that will meet the different beauty requirements of all consumers around the world. It is our duty to provide the diversity of products needed to achieve that, but also the educational platforms so customers can find the most relevant products for their needs. That is paramount in the 2020 ambition. It is crucial for digital to not just entertain people, which would be nice, but to provide information for people to identify the right product for them.

- How do you engage your target audience? What role does the actual message play?

One side of this is around the content we produce - it cannot be an engaging or informative platform without quality and relevant content. But we also need visibility for that content, which is a constant challenge. We have to reinvent our communication model all the time and leverage new touch points. The diversity of our customer base provides immense opportunities for presenting beauty education in very different ways. We explore new avenues and keep track of new technologies even before they are launched.

- What tools do marketers underutilise?

There is still a strong belief in the TV model in this business, yet when you look at media consumption, TV has almost been taken over by digital channels and internet consumption. The media mix should no longer be heavily dominated by TV. Marketers are missing the opportunities to further leverage new channels.

- What advice do you have for marketers with smaller budgets than what L'Oreal brands may have?

L'Oreal is privileged to have exceptional marketing means, but at the same time, the business is driven by individual marketers. Each brand is managed as a small business, with the mentality that every dollar invested matters.

- Any final words of advice for marketers in Australia?

Be ambitious, bold and daring. Although Australia is a developed country, it is still experiencing high growth. Consumers are tech savvy. Smartphone penetration is high. The country is hungry for innovation.

One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth. The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS solutions that provide a Hadoop flavor either make choices for customers very flexible in the name of opti...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The cloud is now a fact of life but generating recurring revenues that are driven by solutions and services on a consumption model have been hard to implement, until now.

He will argue that today’s hybrid cloud storage solutions, with commodity...
Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.
