John Frieda®
#madeforme

Demanding women want to achieve the extraordinary. John Frieda® understands extraordinary personalities and fosters long-term relationships with women with demanding hair. Consequently, we set up a new strategic ambassador cooperation in 2018 to reach the next level of brand loyalty. This involves influencers into real brand ambassadors as well as closing the gap between brand and audience by starting a loyalty program: The John Frieda® Brand Lovers.

The task: Increasing the customer loyalty to the brand.

Through this authentic and individual type of woman, our task is to establish a positive image and to draw the audience closer to us by giving them the opportunity to communicate the transformation of their demanding hair through John Frieda®.

The idea: #madeforme as the overall philosophy.

Under the umbrella idea #madeforme, combined with specifically selected ambassadors, we established an overall philosophy which connects women with John Frieda® to feel and learn about the power of transformation. What’s more, the intention is to close the gap between the brand and the audience by using brand lovers as product ambassadors and prove that demanding hair can be transformed with products that are #madeforme.

Ambassadors — John Frieda’s exclusive ambassadors are strong personalities who inspire users of John Frieda®products. They reveal how they transform their hair using John Frieda® products – and show the emotional and practical side of this transformation. With long-term contracts, they act as real brand ambassadors by giving tips to their audience and empowering them to feel the transformation by using John Frieda® products. The goal is:to increase customer loyalty for the brand. CREDIBILITY and ADVOCACY are the outcome of long-term, exclusive relationships.

Brand lovers — This loyalty program is designed for the woman next door. With our eye-level communication, we draw in women who already love John Frieda® into our everyday communication. We will pamper them with product packages and inspire them to share their transformation with us on social media. The goal is: to generate BONDING and show TRANSFORMATION through product usage.
