#1 The customer is digital. Sephora have built digital audience profiles of their customers. Knowing what they are doing from when they wake up in the morning to when they go to bed at night, what devices are being used and when and how the customer is jumping from one device to another. This means they are able to provide utility or a message at the right time on the right platform.

#2 Data is everything.

Collecting data is just one step, using it to provide a service is something else entirely. Sephora use tablets in-store to aid customer service. Colour IQ is a programme where you can have your makeup colour matched and then an iPad is used to filter and pick the products that are best for you. This is data in real-time and not only does it improve the customer experience, it leads directly to sale.

#3 The power of content. Content is one of the most powerful tools. Anyone can generate content, the best practice in content is knowing what content your customers actually want. Sephora believe that content should be inspiring and educational. They have listened when their customers have asked for How-to videos, step by steps on Pinterest boards and trend forecasts. Great content that is easily consumable on mobile.

Technology does not make a successful campaign,

But marketing expertise and digital mindset do.
