What better way to tap into the Korean consumer psyche than via their smart phones. An interesting concept of Online meeting Offline, and how Tesco – through their Korean subsidiary Home Plus – came up with an idea to help busy Koreans do their dreaded grocery shopping while waiting for the subway, on their way home from work. Excellent idea!
When grocery chain Tesco wanted to expand their market share in South Korea, they came up with a brilliant idea.
Because the people in South Korea work long hours they thought of an efficient way to sell their products. The Korean subsidiary Home Plus put up billboards in subway stations with their range of products, accompanied by QR, or Quick Response codes. All people had to do now is scan the QR codes with their cell phone and the groceries were delivered to their doorsteps.
