Case study: leading coffee brand sales impact with NCS


A leading coffee brand approached Shopkick to increase awareness of its 2016 holiday seasonal flavors and drive sales of two packaged products in grocery and mass stores nationwide. To reach consumers in the planning phase, the brand wished to leverage video content to build consideration and increase brand equity. In-store, the goal was to drive engagement at the crowded coffee shelf and incentivize consumers to pick up the products. The team wanted to understand conversion and capture consumer insights throughout the purchase journey. Finally, the brand was looking to preserve margin by incentivizing traffic, engagement and sales through rewards and not coupons or discounts.
