Generate On-Shelf Excitement at Key Retailers

In a highly competitive space like Target, Snapple needed a way to boost awareness of its new product, Snapple Straight Up Tea, and to drive purchase trial and conversion. Vesta worked with the brand to identify and mobilize a guerilla marketing team – 1,200 influential Target shoppers – to try the new product and generate buzz and excitement of the products’ availability on-shelf.


Amplify Promotions to Drive Conversion and Support Retail Relationship

Participants were prompted to try the tea and share their experiences through social media with their friends and family. Their posts contained a special discount offer call-to-action link – driving friends, followers and readers to purchase and achieved a 34% redemption rate. 


Consumer Intelligence to Ensure Continued Product Success

It’s estimated that one in four products will fail after launch. Snapple surveyed engaged and opinionated consumers to help understand key brand attributes, marketing positioning, and retail behaviors to make informed decisions.
