Seven Hair & Body

British barbers shop Seven Hair & Body, wanted a way to reward customers to ensure they kept coming back to them for their every grooming need. Here’s what they did and how their program works!

Seven Hair & Body

Background

Seven Hair & Body located in the cathedral city of Peterborough in England, have been providing local patrons with male grooming services for the past 20 years, including cuts, beard trims, waxing and facials.

Their busy barbers shop accepts bookings and walk-in appointments for all ages, including double dad and son appointments.

The Brief

The initial brief from Seven Hair & Body was for a loyalty solution that would keep their customers coming back to them for their every grooming need.

At the end of 2019, they approached us for a free trial to see what a digital loyalty program was all about. They found it to be such a useful solution, they’ve been using us ever since.

Key Objectives

The primary goals that Seven Hair & Body and Stamp Me strived to achieve with a digital loyalty solution were to:

  • Strengthen the emotional connection between the business and its customers so they didn’t stray to a competitor
  • Motivate customers to come back to Seven Hair & Body to fulfil their repeat haircut needs
  • Keep their brand front-of-mind for existing customers
  • Gain valuable data and insights into customer profiles and purchase behaviours
  • Send targeted communications and promotions directly to customers’ mobile devices

How the 

Seven Hair & Body

 Loyalty Program Works

This loyalty program rewards customers for regularly patronising their barbers shop.

With every full service a customer receives (such as a standard gentleman’s haircut), the customer will receive a stamp. When they have reached 6 stamps, they have earned themselves a ½ price haircut reward (or a £20 cut and shave special package, usual RRP £35).

The app is set to automatically trigger the reward on stamp 6. It notifies the customer and stores the reward voucher in the app for them to redeem on their next visit.

In order to claim their reward, the customer simply shows the barber staff the automatically generated reward voucher screen on their phone. The discount is then applied on the cashier by the staff.

Once the stamp card has been used, it refreshes back to zero so the customer can begin to collect stamps towards another discount!

See how customers claim rewards in-person.

Step 1:

Step 2:
When they reach stamp 6, the reward triggers. A voucher is added to their account

Step 3:

Step 4:
Staff apply the reward of a 50% discount = happy customer!

Validation Methods

Seven Hair & Body use our legacy Stamp Mate Device to securely validate stamps for their in-store haircut offer.

The innovative Stamp Mate Device runs independent of any other systems – there are no complicated installations or additional software or hardware required.

Positioned next to the cash register, customers are able to open the app at the time of payment and simply touch their phone on the device to claim their stamp.

They also use a Stamp Code for customers to scan as a back-up or for user preference.

Promotion

The staff are brilliant advocates of their loyalty program and have been trained on how the program works. They educate customers at their point-of-sale and prompt them to download the Stamp Me App.

When the barbers shop is busy, or when a customer wants to join the program in their own time, Seven Hair & Body hand out join cards.

These are small business cards with instructions on how to download the app, and a QR join code specifically for their business. Customers simply scan the QR join code through the app in order to sign-up to the loyalty program to start collecting stamps.
