Drastic shifts in consumer needs, behaviors, and preferences have upended business models across all industries.

eMarketer predicted that direct-to-consumer (D2C) sales would rise 24.3% last year from 2019 and continue to grow as brands realize the benefits, hence why e.l.f. Beauty is one of many companies leaning into a consumer-first approach.

Yet, despite the curveball of the pandemic on the cosmetics industry, e.l.f. Beauty has come out strong and continues to boom in the midst of its shift to a D2C model, all while focused on leveraging its customer data platform (CDP) to create a single view of the customer.

eMarketer was pleased to moderate a Tech-Talk Webinar featuring ActionIQ’s Tamara Gruzbarg, head of customer insights, and e.l.f. Beauty’s Brigitte Barron, director of global CRM and customer growth. They discussed how e.l.f. Beauty is driving its D2C transformation and expanding customer loyalty.

Watch this webinar and learn:

  • What led e.l.f. Beauty to shift toward D2C, and how people, processes, and tech played a role
  • How customer data and CDPs play a critical role in driving customer loyalty
  • Key insights into how e.l.f. Beauty integrated technology across multiple business units to drive impact
