Reese’s Gets Customers Coming Back for More!

Every so often I get these cravings for peanut butter and chocolate so I buy Reese’s peanut butter cups. I noticed writing on the bottom of the card stock that holds the cups in place as I finished the last cup. See the photo below:

The comment was cheerful and then the end was an ingenious way on Hershey’s  part to get you to buy more Reese’s candy.  I read it and was moved to buy more. The candy was so yummy I think I even went specifically to the store just to buy more Reese’s peanut butter cups.

How’s that for copy that moves the customer to action? It had a positive message: “Have a perfect day” and “This is not an empty package but a REMINDER TO GET MORE”, how cool is that? I had been feeling sad that my candy was finished until I read the message on the card. Then I was moved to buy more peanut butter cups.

Hershey’s came up with an excellent and tasty way to encourage more sales. Now that’s what I call direct response marketing at its best! I had more peanut butter cups to enjoy and Hershey’s had more of my money. =) A win/win situation!

What are you doing to get your customers wanting more of your goods and services? Any notes on your invoices, sales receipts or follow up contacts encouraging them to do even more business with you?
