CUSTOMER ACQUISITION

Customer acquisition means to get/acquire new customers to buy/consume the product/service that are offered. There are some methods to do this. The methods may vary depending on the target market and the product/service itself. Customer acquisition is really important for new businesses and new launched products. It is the first step to build and develop the market. This explains why new products often have discounts or interesting promotion, the  marketers want to obtain new customers and simulate the target to try the product.

Examples :

  • Grab (transportation app) gives free charge for new users’ first ride
  • Shoppee (online shop app) gives 30% promo code for first users
  • Forever 21 (clothing store) held a big sale when they first open in West Jakarta
