As a marketer, it can be a constant struggle to balance the need to grow your products with the need to reduce acquisition costs and generate long term repeat customers. And what’s more is it can be very hard to measure the ROI on marketing programs and can get meaningful feedback from your target audience at the same time.
Traditional media buying programs can be expensive, difficult to direct to specific retail locations, and hard to track. Did those people that saw your Instagram ad really pick up an item at the store level? Or did the people who sampled your smoothie at the in-store demo really like it, would they buy it again? Why or Why not?
What’s more is the cost of traditional acquisition channels is unpredictable and constantly changing – and the more specific you wish to get with your audience targeting, the more expensive or harder to reach.
That’s why it’s time to consider replacing these traditional methods with more efficient ways to acquire new shoppers and win at retail with a predictable CAC (Customer Acquisition Cost).

“I’m really happy with the campaigns we ran with Social Nature - I got exactly the insights I was looking for. We got real feedback on our products that we are able to take to retailers to help get the products listed.
