executive summary Since Snapple began bottling the Best Stuff on Earth in New York almost 50 years ago, they have become a beloved part of life in the Northeast and a recognized brand nationwide. Despite the loyalty of Snapple’s “Heartland” regional buyers, the brand has struggled to grow top-of-mind brand awareness in the rest of the country. In Snapple’s recent campaign, “New Yorkers Love Snapple,” the brand encouraged people to like Snapple simply because New Yorkers did. Our challenge is to extend this connection organically to Snapple newcomers in the Non-Heartland, while maintaining our nostalgic appeal in the Northeast. After conducting thorough research on Snapple’s brand perception nationwide, we were able to properly segment our target demographic into “Practical Buyers” and “Brand Buyers.” Practical Buyers determine their product preferences through a cost/benefit analysis, while Brand Buyers evaluate a product based on how heavily the brand’s identity aligns with their own. Our strategy remains consistent for Practical Buyers because they simply value

Overview

the product itself, and the product remains consistent nationwide. However, we target Brand Buyers in the Heartland and Non-Heartland differently. In order to effectively engage these distinct groups, we created a dual-strategy campaign: “Snap into the Moment.” Our creative approach emphasizes being present in the current moment by savoring life’s simple joys. We target the two regions by emphasizing brand nostalgia in the Heartland, and new adventures to those in the NonHeartland. This dual strategy will increase brand relevance by 22% in the Heartland and grow top-of-mind brand awareness by 16% in the Non-Heartland. “Snap into the Moment” is centered around our belief that Snapple is made from more than just The Best Stuff on Earth.

IT IS MADE FOR YOU. IT IS MADE FROM TRADITION. AND IT IS MADE FOR THE FUTURE.

the strategy Made For You. Made From Tradition. Made For The Future. Made From the Best Stuff on Earth. Practical Buyers determine preferences through their own personal cost/benefit analysis. While the thought process of a Practical Buyer transcends regions, that of a Brand Buyer varies from region to region. Therefore, our strategy will diverge with respect to Brand Buyers.

national

non-heartland

Made For You

Made From Tradition

Made For The Future

Brand Buyers evaluate products subjectively, and their selection process is based heavily on how closely the brand’s identity aligns with their own. Due to the fact that Snapple is a historical and ubiquitous brand in the Heartland, we take a nostalgic approach in our Heartland executions. We grow brand relevance in this region by fostering a sense of tradition both within the community and at the individual level. Instead of targeting Brand Buyers with in-store deals, our “Made From Tradition” strategy emphasizes brand principles, regional nostalgia, and personal sentiment to encourage lifestylebased purchases.

Outside of the Heartland, Snapple is not top-of-mind and consumers lack a pre-existing brand affinity because of its limited presence. Our strategy will highlight Snapple’s values and position it as a forwardthinking brand. By promoting pro-social ethics and values that will build rapport between the brand and its consumer base, we hope to convert High Awareness to Top-Of-Mind Brand Awareness. Furthermore, we will market Snapple as a lifestyle brand associated with adventure and ethos. The “Made For The Future” strategy will engage a new audience by unveiling Snapple as not only a brand with rich history, but one with an exciting future.

Focuses on the tangible features of Snapple products rather than the sentiment they associate with the brand. For this reason, Practical Buyers do not feel a strong affinity to any particular brand, and purchase products on a case-bycase basis by conducting a cost/ benefit analysis. We will target Practical Buyers primarily at the point of purchase, influencing their decision with in-store deals. We will position Snapple as a brand that is individuallyoriented and “Made For You” to assure consumers that Snapple is, objectively, the best brand for them.

media strategy Establish. Connect. Grow. The Media Placement Strategy for the 2017 Snapple Marketing Campaign breaks the year down into three segments that build on each other to create a cohesive progression of creative executions. In an attempt to maximize engagement and increase brand relevance, these segments will re-establish and grow the tradition of Snapple within the Heartland while establishing brand awareness and a future for Snapple outside the Heartland.

establish Establish, the first segment of our Media Placement Strategy, runs from January through April and initiates our year-long advertising executions. This portion will see the implementation of our commercial, in-store executions and social media executions. These methods will serve to create a foundational brand awareness of Snapple for consumers outside the Heartland while refreshing Snapple’s image for customers with whom the brand’s image has faded.

connect

grow

Connecting people and their communities with Snapple commences in April and continues through summer’s peak beverage consumption times. The executions begin with transportation-focused ads placed on Gas Pump Televisions, Billboards, Subways, Bus-stops, and the Radio meant to target commuters and families on road trips throughout the summer. A subsequent van tour across the nation, paired with its own web series and grand finale concert in San Diego, CA will further connect people with their community and Snapple.

Growth concludes our campaign and focuses on expanding consumers’ connections to Snapple. Our “Know the Facts” and Instagram campaigns are geared towards generating earned media. These will also be complemented by in-store executions and the conclusion of our Digital and TV ads. These campaigns will work by bolstering sentiment towards Snapple in the Heartland and ingraining it as a new tradition for the future in the non-Heartland. By the end of 2017, our Media Strategy will have elevated the Snapple brand across the nation by making it a company of both tradition and the future.

media markets The major media markets have been chosen based on the size of market respective to their position in the Heartland or Non-Heartland. These markets will help us both reach a large audience for our Out-of-Home, In-Store and Guerrilla executions while executing our dual strategy inside and outside of the Heartland. Heartland Media Markets: New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Hartford, Syracuse, Albany, Washington, D.C./Baltimore Non-Heartland Media Markets: Los Angeles, San Francisco/Oakland, Seattle, San Diego, Denver, Phoenix, Austin, Houston, Dallas/ Ft. Worth, St Louis, Chicago, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Columbus, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Detroit, Tampa

many moments. endless possibilities Deliverable: Snapple will implement interactive banner ads on desktop and mobile platforms to captivate users. These interactive ads will showcase characters whose quirky clothing is constantly shifting, while their faces remain static. When viewers click on a character’s outfit, they will be redirected to a Yelp search result page related to the corresponding image. For instance, clicking on a ballerina character will take the viewer to ballet performances in the area, while clicking on the cowboy attire will lead to local horseback riding lessons. Substantiation: The use of interactivity within the ad draws audiences to venture out of their comfort zone. By partnering with Yelp, this execution serves as a liaison to connect users with opportunities to “Snap Into the Moment.” This targets consumers in both the Heartland and Non-Heartland by leading them to search results that encourage viewers to explore their city or try something new. Additionally, these banners are complemented by traditional banner and pre-roll video ads on websites that reach our target demographic. The pre-roll video ads will showcase the “Snap into the Moment” commercial helping to further increase brand awareness and engagement.

out-of-home Billboards, Transportation Ads, and Gas Station Televisions help brand Snapple as an “on the go” beverage for a road trip or a commute. Billboards and Gas Pump Televisions will reach a national audience in the top­-25 Media Markets and will provide repeated exposure in the large, commuter demographic. Gas Pump Televisions are especially effective due to high engagement rate, monthly viewership, and close proximity to point­-of­ purchase. Transportation advertisements will be placed on Subways in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. and Bus­Stops in major Non­-Heartland media markets. This will help grow national brand relevance and increase top­-of-­mind awareness when consumers face future purchase decisions.

television Our TV placement strategy centers on year­ round airings of our commercial as its themes apply to each of the three sections of our Media Strategy. Our selection of shows get high ratings with the target demographic of 18­-49 and draws a diverse audience that will appreciate Snapple’s tone and attitude. Broadcast television ensures a national reach for our campaign, while cable television encompasses a greater variety of programs and allows us to target more specific interest groups.

We will buy 30-second spots on the following shows: •

Broadcast Primetime: NFL Sunday Night Football, Empire, The Big Bang Theory, Scandal, Gotham, NCIS, Law and Order: SVU

Broadcast Late Fringe: Tonight

Trevor Noah, Conan, Watch What Happens, Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, Rick and Morty, Family Guy, American Dad

media placement social

radio

Our strategy for social is to advertise on Facebook, Instagram, Buzzfeed, Snapchat and Pinterest. We believe that these platforms fit extremely well with our target demographic of 18­-49. Social media advertising comes either in the form of sponsored posts on Facebook and Instagram and in content that is generated for Snapple’s own social media accounts. Advertising on social media is particularly effective and engaging due to its low CPM/CPC and large reach. The sharable content and involvement of users in the executions will also create earned media.

Radio targets commuters in their cars, with the highest times of activity being weekdays during morning and afternoon drives. Afternoon drives occur every weekday from 3 PM to 7 PM and this time is ideal for advertising because it reaches consumers with a high likelihood to be either grocery shopping or approaching a point of purchase. To reach our target demographic, we will be advertising on contemporary, Top 40, and alternative radio stations during these peak times in the summer months.

in-store + partnerships

guerilla

In-Store activations help increase sales and brand recall by targeting shoppers at point of purchase. Executions are meant to boost sales in summer and when people are less likely to buy a Snapple in the winter. Our partnership with Walmart will feature Snapple on endcaps, a strategy proven to increase sales by 98% and also feature the Photo Booths and Snapple Stations art select stores. These executions provide an additional incentive at point of purchase and help build inventory of emails to send coupons later. Our year ends with a social partnership through the Know the Facts campaign, meant to bolster our “grow” media strategy and also be a source of earned media.

Our guerrilla events are critical for our “Connect” phase as they create the most personal interaction with the brand. The events center around a Van Tour, starting the weekend before Memorial Day with a Kickoff Carnival and culminates at the Snapple Soundwaves Concert in San Diego. These events will generate a large number of impressions and strengthen the personal connection between Snapple and the consumers. For instance, the concert admission price is a bottle of Snapple, effectively driving trial with new consumers in the Non­-Heartland. After the Van Tour departs, Snapple Frames will continue to engage our Heartland consumers. Our guerilla events will be further strengthened through their sharable nature, generating earned media.

digital Banner and video ads, along with native ads and paid search, will be placed on both desktop and mobile platforms to maximize engagement. We will reach a broad consumer base by focusing on websites across a variety of verticals such as news, sports, entertainment and e-commerce. The effectiveness of these ads will be improved by programmatic buying and sequential retargeting. Additionally, search ads will be implemented at specific points throughout the year, such as the van kickoff, web series, and San Diego concert. This will increase traffic to our website to promote those executions. Our targeted websites will include: • • • • • • •

Amazon Ask.com CNN ESPN Fandago Huffington Post IMDb

• • • • • • •

Native ads will connect Snapple with ideas of adventure, music, and social consciousness. They will be placed on: • TimeOut • The College Human • Billboard Network • Upworthy • Boston Globe • Business Insider • Grub Street • Thoughtcatalogue • Universal Hub

measures of success preliminary campaign testing In order to ensure growth in brand relevance amongst heavy users within the Heartland and increased awareness amongst light users in the Non-Heartland, we conducted preliminary tests before and after exposure to the campaign. We analyzed the consumer consideration sets and asked participants for word associations that pertain to Snapple’s personality and products. In the Heartland, we measured an increase in brand relevance from 52% to 74%. After exposure to our campaign, Heartland consumers described Snapple with phrases like “nostalgic” and “family drink,” showing that our executions reconnect consumers to Snapple and grow brand affinity.

Outside the Heartland, we measured an increase in topof-mind brand awareness from 17% to 33%. After exposure to our campaign, Non-Heartland consumers described Snapple with phrases such as “charitable,” “quirky,” and “fun,” demonstrating that our executions illustrate a novel, adventurous, and pro-social brand image for Snapple. When participants were asked to narrow their consideration set from four beverage brands to two, 70% included Snapple in the set, demonstrating our campaign’s success in increasing Brand Relevance.

QUALITATIVE

Use Google Analytics including website traffic and click through rates to evaluate online initiatives, specifically the Know the Facts campaign Measure increases in likes, followers, shares/retweets on social media sites and views/subscribers on YouTube Use Nielsen, Kantar and Experian to measure the reach of specific media channels Trace participation of target demographic, especially 30 yr olds in guerrilla and in-store executions Distribute surveys via social media and email marketing

1.

Review comments and feedback on social media outlets including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube 2. Monitor Media Coverage (TV, Online, and OOH) 3. Conduct pre-tests and post-tests for the campaign in focus groups

Given these maintenance techniques, we have budgeted $700,000 in contingency to make adjustments and further press the most effective platforms of our campaign.

orders & revenue Snapple currently has annual sales of 35 million cases, generating over half a billion dollars in revenue. Our efforts by the end of the campaign will grow Snapple volume in the United States. After conducting pre-tests and post-tests of our campaign along with impressions and engagement rates from eMarketer and Experian, we expect to generate:

Media Planning

$960 MM in revenue with upwards of 60 Million Snapple cases sold. This will meet and likely exceed our goal of growing heavy user buying rate to 9x to 10x per year and light user buying rate from 1x to 3x per year.
