MyMarketing guide

MyMarketing guide how does it work? Each time you place an order for Dermalogica products from January 1st to December 31st, you earn 10% of your pre-tax purchase total in MyMarketing dollars (including paid Opening Orders). For example – if you place an order totaling $1,000 (excluding tax), you will bank MyMarketing dollars to the value of $100. At the start of each year, on January 1st, your MyMarketing account balance will be zero. You have a full 12 months, until December 31st, to build you’re MyMarketing account balance. The balance accrued in any one calendar year must be used within that calendar year. However, Dermalogica will give you 15 months – until March 31st of the following year – to submit invoices to receive reimbursement. Once all the outlined steps have been followed and requirements are met, your Dermalogica account will be credited with 50% of the advertising cost (pre-tax). The amount of the credit will also depend on the balance of your MyMarketing account and what has been accrued up to that point. For example – if 50% of the cost of your approved advertisement is $1,000 and the balance of your MyMarketing account is $500, the maximum amount of $500 will be applied as a credit on your Dermalogica account.

Print Advertising: Choose a publication that suits your target market and your price range, from a community newspaper / magazine, to a nation-wide newspaper or magazine.

steps to follow when putting together MyMarketing advertisements: 1

Determine the type of advertising you would like to do Consider your target market, location, and research what’s available in your area. Contact sales representatives regarding frequency discounts; ask them about special editions, etc. Beware of ‘last minute’ specials/deals offered in publications you wouldn’t normally consider. Establish your goal while considering the four core principles of why to advertise / promote – gain new clients, retain clients, increase retail or introduce one of Dermalogica’s core experiences – Face Mapping®, Skin BarSM or MicroZone®

Here are a few examples: • Want to draw in higher-end clients into your skin centre? Send a postcard through Canada Post to target an affluent postal code in your area. This information can be found on the Canada Post website or by calling their toll-free number. • Want to promote a gift with purchase? Call newspapers in your area and ask about availability and rates – national newspapers often have province only editions that offer reduced rates. Ask for statistical information to ensure you’re communicating to the right target market. • Want a unique approach to attract clients? Try a radio advertisement – contact local radio stations and inquire about their rates. Log onto the Online Business Centre and download a pre-created radio script. • Excited to share the Dermalogica experience with your new and existing clients? Download and customize the Face Mapping® ad-slick from the Online Business Centre and place an advertisement in a local publication of your choice.
