At Gnaw, we always look to build strong working relationships with like-minded partners – we find that having the same ethos is fundamental to sustaining those relationships in the long-term.
Although operating in a very different industry, ESE Direct’s core values mirror that of ours, here at Gnaw. Priding themselves on the delivery of ‘exceptional service, every time’, the award-winning ESE’s friendly and customer-centric approach was the perfect match with Gnaw, who also keep their customers at the very heart of all they do.
With customer satisfaction a priority for both businesses, when ESE started to look to create a reward programme for their customers, Gnaw not only produced high quality and deliciously-good chocolate, they were the perfect fit professionally too.
“Being a B2B supplier, we knew that giving a treat to the purchasers, especially one that they could share with a whole office, would be a great incentive for them to place an order with us. Of course, we also wanted to encourage repeat business and improve sales conversion rates too” said Martin Gilmour, Marketing Manager at ESE Direct.
“When investigating suppliers, we were instantly taken by the brand identity of Gnaw, which we felt spoke in a much more distinctive voice than bigger brands and the Norfolk connection gave us something in common – that helped us tell a more compelling story”.
How has the customer award scheme worked for ESE?
There are two levels of customer reward; a Luxury Hamper and a Hot Chocolate Shot Gift Box for orders over £250 and for orders over £500, they receive A Variety Hamper, a Luxury Hamper and two Gnaw Goodee Boxes.
“The scheme has encouraged larger baskets and increased our conversation rate; our average order values across both website and telephone sales channels have increased. The scheme is great and have achieved our objectives. As a business it enables us to reward larger, more considered purchases and retain customer loyalty.” Martin continues.
During the promotion, ESE have seen a measurable increase in conversion rate and a 10% increase in average order value, across both existing and new customers. The promotion also provided a great opportunity to create a strong social media campaign; this achieved good engagement levels across Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
In addition, the team at ESE also received some great customer feedback saying how much they enjoyed the Gnaw Chocolate (which is always nice to hear!).
