Club MOMs: Building meaningful connections through tailored communications
and customized activities
Understanding mothers’ solid needs and desires to be associated with communities on social media, MJNHK took the lead in launching the
Club MOMs program. This allowed us to build a relevant and close-knit community for local mothers on their pregnancy-to-motherhood journey, a time filled with excitement and happiness, which can also bring about apprehension and uncertainty.
Armed with in-depth understanding of parents’ concerns throughout the pregnancy journey and newborn period, MJNHK utilized its network of healthcare professionals to amass and share timely and useful information to this newly created mother’s community , ranging from pre-natal care and nutrition tips in the early stages of pregnancy to self-care and fitness advice for post-natal care, including customized activities to address mother’s needs, such as yoga classes to members who gave birth within 3 to 6 months – the ideal time for new mothers to start exercising.
The personalized nature of the information made brand communications significantly more effective and engaging, demonstrated the brand’s professional insights and cares to the community, resulting in a 92% retention rate and a more substantial loyal customer base.
We CAN Protect the Future: Tapping into daily consumer routines to build a cleaner and more sustainable world for the future generations
As the leading infant and child formula company, MJNHK saw its responsibility to build a more sustainable future for Hong Kong and its next generation, nurturing their best start in life, and therefore pioneered the city’s first territory-wide infant formula can recycling program.
MJNHK surveyed over 1,100 parents to identify barriers preventing them from recycling. Based on these insights, the company designed a highly accessible, relatable, and trusted recycling program that addressed local parents’ needs and concerns towards recycling formula cans.
MJNHK initiated a strategic partnership with e-commerce leader HKTVmall to launch collection points across all 18 districts in Hong Kong, making formula cans recycling more direct and convenient than ever. A consumer-focused reward scheme was also designed to motivate parents to recycle used formula cans when they picked up new supplies at stores. Through aligning parents’ buying and recycling patterns, the program made recycling a natural part of the customer journey as well as driving environmental and business sustainability.
The action-oriented program saw over 5,800 infant formula cans returned for recycling within the 12-week pilot period. 82% of the participants started building formula can recycling habit after joining the program. 85% of participants built a positive perception towards the brand because of this sustainability program, and the brand acquired 75% more new consumers on HKTVmall platform.
These outstanding initiatives demonstrate MJNHK’s ongoing efforts in understanding customer needs and creating effective campaigns to improve customer loyalty and engage the community.
