Shopper Marketing is more than just tactical approaches to boosting sales by using coupons. It is a powerful marketing communication discipline that drives shopper behaviors for a desired outcome.

In fact, when properly executed, Shopper Marketing is THE discipline that formally allows sales impact activities (even short term) to be aligned with brand strategies for long term brand building purpose.

For Shopper Marketing to deliver its full potential and power, it must be implemented through an impactful activation and control plan, otherwise you risk losing sales and missing customer conversion opportunities.

  • How to overcome shopper barriers and deliver a stand-out campaign message
  • How to effectively activate your campaign in the retail space
  • How to select the appropriate channels and methods for your targeted message and offer
  • How to track the results of your campaign and build a Best (and Bad) Practices reference for future campaigns

This engaging, interactive, practice-driven workshop will be facilitated by Shopper Marketing professionals and educators. In addition, as co-authors on a book on this subject, they have surveyed the Shopper Marketing industry to develop a clear step by step planning process to align Shopper Marketing with Marketing and develop effective Shopper Marketing campaigns.
