DAD You’re Gr-r-reat

Last week, in the lead up to Father’s Day, Kellogg’s jumped on the personalisation band wagon with a special-edition pack where they boldly replaced the name of the product (Frosties) with DAD – stopping shoppers in their tracks.

Shoppers were then held by a mashing up of Frosties very own tag line with the occasion – ‘DAD’ You’re Gr-r-reat – and the deal was closed with the supporting price promotion.

That, dear friends, is an example of the STOP, HOLD, CLOSE principles; a good indication of a well-structured piece of shopper marketing, which put Frosties on the menu for dads across the nation.



Big Chill…

Product trial is a fantastic way to encourage sales and we spotted a particularly engaging example in at Marks Work Wearhouse in the U.S.

Mark’s were providing an unusual in-store experience (STOP) that challenged shopper’s to test their winter clothing (HOLD) by stepping into a winter weather simulator (CLOSE).

We scored it highly against our principle of Stop, Hold, Close.

Garnier BB Summer Skin

Garnier BB’s campaign, endorsed by Holly Willoughby, is based on a refreshingly relevant beauty insight about the natural look trumping a face full of make up  this summer.

With awareness around product benefits brought to life in ATL, we saw a well integrated campaign with the message reinforced through in-store activations. Garnier was able to differentiate from competitors at shelf with further education on how BB cream improves your skin’s appearance and even your morning routine.

Schwartz owning the BBQ

With all that pressure to be the summer BBQ legend among your friends and family, why wouldn’t a CTA like ‘Flavour your way to the Perfect BBQ’ send the Schwartz range sailing through checkout?

We’re all guilty of pretending our flavours are homemade; but the ease and efficiency of the premix has been known to sway even the most dedicated chefs.

Schwartz has done a damn fine job to capitalise on this I’m-a-sucker-for-convenience attitude by strategically placing their FSDU by ASDA’s meat fridge, driving out of category visibility for the brand with a relevant adjacent range.
