TREND SPOTTER

"WE'RE A CREATIVE SHOP WITH THE SKILLS OF AN ENGINEER
AND THE MANUFACTURING CHOPS TO PULL IT OFF."

DAN SABANOSH,
DIRECTOR, SHOPPER MARKETING

Shopper Marketing is about more than apps and digital coupons. We know a campaign can

live or die at the point of purchase. So we translate consumer insights. We design, prototype

and test solutions. We work with brand managers to align design strategy, engineering,
manufacturing cost, and ROI. It's the magic we call
brand-building solutions. The result? You win.

GREAT	NORTHERN	INSTORE:	HOW	BRANDS	WIN

INSIGHTS
BRIEFING
The brief sets the strategic roadmap
for the project, focusing on relevant
business goals. We work with the brand
and research teams to nail down the
critical details.

In China consumers make their product choices inside
the store 88% of the time. But in Germany that number
plummets to 38%. In the US, consumers are closer to
the Chinese with in-store shopping behavior. In certain
product categories- skin care, cosmetics and beer,
over 60% of buying decisions are made in store.
When it comes to their categories, marketers
must understand buying decisions so that they
can invest in the smartest activation programs
and create a visual story for their brand-one
that ignites purchase...loyalty...success.
POPAI, 2014 Shopper Study

BUSINESS	GOAL

PURINA'S	TIDY	CAT:	A	CATEGORY	GAME-CHANGER
Purina research identified an opportunity to
increase market share in the cat litter category.

Great Northern Instore generated pencil sketches
to get the collaboration flowing between our
team and the client's. Sketches were refined
into line drawings and then into 3D renderings.
"Lift Test" mock-ups were created and tested
in focus groups.

CONCEPT	&	DESIGN

How to convey the product innovation?
Great Northern Instore designed an interactive
display featuring the "Tidy Cats Lift Test."
Shoppers were invited to lift a generic package
of traditional cat litter and then lift Tidy Cats.

SHOPPER	INSIGHT	
Consumers did not like having to lift and carry
heavy containers of cat litter.

PRODUCT	INNOVATION
Purina created a lightweight product
under its Tidy Cat brand.

ROLLOUT
The Tidy Cats integrated campaign included:
national TV, digital (website, banners, YouTube,
cat-loving bloggers) and customized shopper
activation plans for strategic retail accounts.

THE	WIN
Retail confirmed it. As soon as shoppers picked
up the container, they were sold. The display was
inviting, colorful and had a fun headline: "Lift
It to Believe It." Plus it fit all the various retailer
requirements. Incremental sales increased 54% to
99% in key markets.
