OZ Hair & Beauty’s Successful Venture into the Student Market

OZ Hair & Beauty partnered with publisher UNiDAYS to accomplish a successful outreach into the student market – with the help of Commission Factory.   

Case study and Spotlight Template (1)-1

OZ Hair & Beauty is a retailer providing consumers with an online shopping experience for quality hair and beauty products. With over 30 years of experience in hair care, it intended to expand its foothold into new markets. 

Commission Factory partnered OZ Hair and Beauty with UNiDAYS, a student network affiliate with the audience reach, technology, and expertise to help them venture into new verticals. After an initial discussion facilitated by the Commission Factory team, UNiDAYS, and OZ Hair & Beauty successfully kicked off their partnership in mid-July 2021.  

OBJECTIVE 

A key goal was to help OZ Hair & Beauty attract new and valuable long-term customers. UNiDAYS identified Gen Z students as a suitable demographic for the advertiser.  

The objective was to improve engagement, conversion rate, and impression levels among the student demographic, and market OZ Hair & Beauty as a superior choice for hair and beauty care products.  

SOLUTION  

UNiDAYS launched OZ Hair & Beauty as a prominent partner across the UNiDAYS ANZ and Gradlife platforms through a bespoke marketing launch plan. The affiliate introduced OZ Hair & Beauty as an exciting new merchant, highlighting the advertiser’s always-on 10% student discount on their website and how it can be redeemed. 

This launch plan ran for four weeks, and UNiDAYS used various touchpoints like targeted CRM, On Network Placements and Off-Network to showcase the advertiser. To kick off the launch, OZ Hair & Beauty partnered with UNiDAYS in their weekly Mystery Box Promotion on the 14th of July, and an email blast was sent to 157,762 leads to generate hype for the merchant.
