Smart Product Bundling Strategies: 3 Campaign Ideas

By Holly Millar Tags: Promotions, Marketing

Product bundling is not a new marketing strategy, but you cannot deny it’s a great one. By placing an incentive on a package of products, you can reward your customer while encouraging them to spend more.

28% of shoppers are likely to spend more money if a retailer offers a percent off their total, 17% if they offer specific product deals (RetailMeNot).

In this article we will share effective product bundling tactics and promotional campaigns examples.

1. Surplus Product Bundle

The example: Give customers a free pair of socks if they buy a running jacket and shorts, plus give them a coupon for their next purchase.

  • A great way to move surplus products or increase sales on a less popular item
  • Design clever offer that combines popular products, like the latest running jacket and shorts - with a free pair of running socks
  • Optimize conversions with a great deal or something free, while benefiting your top line sales and moving "extra" products
  • Personalize your promotional campaign and mention a local running route, race or event

2. Purchase Frequency Reward

The example: Reward repeat customers with a 30% hotel discount on their 5th and 10th purchase of a round-trip flight.

  • It is a best practice to reward the behaviour of high-spend and highly active customers
  • Design a campaign that bundles related products, so you can cross-promote other products and raise awareness of other services
  • Consider bundling flights with hotels, tourist attractions, transportation, local entertainment, etc.
  • Successful promotions will lead to increased sales revenue while reducing your promotional spend

3. Real-time Reward Bundle

The example: Give customers who purchase tickets for an upcoming football match a free gift based on the weather forecast.

  • Trigger a relevant discount in real-time to increase customer engagement and brand affinity
  • If the forecast is calling for rain, send an email notifying fans that they can collect a rain poncho with a special coupon code when they arrive at the stadium (or sunscreen in the summer?)
  • This type of personalized product giveaway will probably turn your average customers into more than just fans
  • Consider creating a “Sorry-4-The-Rain” coupon valid for their next purchase - relevancy is key to any successful marketing strategy.*

This is product bundling and a great digital marketing strategy to increase product sales and revenue. By bundling products or services and wrapping them together at a discount price, you entice customers with a great deal and increase purchases. Plus it can work in pretty much industry, for any product.
