Scented Coupons: an Interesting Idea
While there are many methods retailers seek to get your business, I would like to cover two interesting ways retailer can get an extra dollar squeezed out of your pocket.
The idea of coupons has been a strategy of retailers for generations. Coupons give incentive for buyers to purchase products receiving savings. For retailers it gives customer incentives to try the retailer’s products with the impression of a discount. It’s an overall victory for all sides of the business food chain: the consumer gets his product cheaper, the retailer sells a larger quantity of products and there are smiles all around.
The idea of using scents to spur consumer to buy is a novel concept. Have you ever gone to the movies and felt the need to purchase popcorn and coke to complete your movie experience? The scent of popcorn when entering a movie theater, urges your senses to buy and enjoy. I recently discovered a site, scentair.com, which provides scents to retailer stores such as bloomingdales, coors, Hard Rock cafe, Chidren’s museum of Indianapolis and others. Bloomingdale uses coconut in their swimsuit department invoking a scent of paradise. In their infant department, they use baby powder scents appealing to mother’s maternal instincts (I wonder why they didn’t use soiled diaper scents). Children’s museum of Indianapolis wanted the scent of dinasour dung for their dinasour exhibits.
I would like to suggest the next possible step in the future of products: scented coupons. Maybe a florist like 1800 flowers can offer 1800 flower coupons with the smell of roses. I can just picture it: “10% off with the purchase of Valentine roses” with a scent of flowers. How about a Chefs coupons with an aroma of fresh baked pie.
It’s just hypothetical, but hey if it works for perfumes inside magazines, I think it is a novel concept and worth looking at.
