Over-the-counter pain-relief brand wanted to drive a sales spike in a distributed, highly regulated retail environment.
We created a full-service solution, combining point-of-sale promotions with digitally distributed, secure discounts to create awareness of the promotion at a key time of the year for the product.
Valassis designed, produced and distributed in store materials, issued print at home coupons via digital channels, and provided live campaign reporting on effectiveness by pharmacy to enable client sales teams to engage underperforming outlets during the promotion.
The campaign beat sales targets and contributed to market share growth over the year. Effectiveness has led the brand to make the activity a key pillar of their annual plans.
