Product launches & seasonal campaigns
Product launches are exciting, yet critical events for brands that want to make a measurable impact on consumers in a short period of time.
Some brands choose to plan their product launches around major seasons or events to maximize the product’s exposure. Advertising during these peak times can be very effective, yet challenging due to the number of brands trying to get their messages out.
So, how do brands stand out from the crowd during an event like the Superbowl?
They map out their shopper marketing journey and use this to launch campaigns in multiple channels. In this case, Frito-Lay utilized a TV commercial along with their Grocery TV campaign to capture consumers’ attention at different points along their journey to purchase.
They engage consumers where they can actually buy the new product - near or at the point of purchase. Having a touch point in grocery stores makes it easier for consumers to act on what they are seeing.
