“We have had our Taste Buds community for over two years. We turn to them for anything and everything that you can think of. And we’ve found it so valuable. We constantly get messages from our Taste Buds about how much they love Sir Kensington’s. About how much they love being a part of the community. And so it really has been an important part of our growth strategy in activating and building this group of super fans.

“Why did we choose Vesta? For us it was ease. It was access to our consumer. It was ownership of the data. And it was the ability to do what we needed which was to drive loyalty beyond purchase. And to drive insights beyond purchase. Because we typically have limited resources budget-wise. And so that’s where this platform fit every need that we were trying to piece together previously. That kind of took it to the next level with this partnership.”

Chief Marketing Officer, Clio Snacks

“We have a community where we can talk to people all the time and we want them to spread their love for ARM & HAMMER Cat Litter. We can actually disrupt the environment and disrupt our competitors. We have these loyalists that we want to get the message out and to speak on our behalf, and in a more organic way than a brand trying to be the voice. To let our consumers do that for us.”
