Mother-in-Law’s Story: Driving Tangible Impact with Social Nature's Rebate Campaign
Impact at a glance
redemptions in total
Mother-in-Law’s ran a cashback campaign using Social Nature’s platform to drive tangible impact at Sprouts and Meijer. This strategic approach allowed them to drive initial product velocity at launch, rather than wait for consumer demand to ramp up over time.
Support new listings, drive targeted trial of Mother-in-Law’s Everyday Kimchi at Sprouts and Meijer, gain pre/post trial consumer insights, and generate online product reviews. This is the first time this product has been listed at a natural products retailer (Sprouts), so customer insight was valuable.
The campaign aimed to attract new customers to the brand, with a particular focus on gaining traction with a large audience and understanding consumer preferences.
95% of consumers had never tried Mother-in-Law’s indicating an opportunity for new customer acquisition and 67% of consumers participating had never heard of Mother-in-Law’s, demonstrating an increase in brand awareness.
Mother-in-Law’s was pleased with several aspects of the campaign's performance. The reasons:
The purchase intent captured from this campaign provides a powerful metric that can be harnessed in sales decks when presenting to other retailers.
Compared to other rebate programs, Social Nature was able to quickly drive members in-store, providing impact at retail when needed. In addition, Social Nature also handled all aspects of promo distribution which was valuable compared to similar services.
Gathering trusted customer feedback through reviews not only uncovered product strengths and areas for enhancement but also provided valuable reviews for leveraging on retailers' websites.
Collected data from the campaign provided valuable insights into category data, user experiences, and the competitive landscape and also revealed other products from the brand that consumers are interested in trying, enriching the brands understanding of market dynamics.

“We worked with Social Nature to track the reception of our additional kimchi product line launch into a top natural grocery chain. This campaign was completely run by Social Nature, making it easy for our small team to manage. SN helped us put together pre- and post-purchase surveys, which provided us with powerful consumer insights about our products. We also learned more about our new-to-brand customers as well as the preference of this category's natural grocery shopper.
Social Nature was uniquely efficient because of their robust community of shoppers, which ensured that we would hit all of our campaign redemptions goals. After the SN team summarized the findings and presented it to us, we’ve been able to include this data in sales decks and marketing materials.
A big thank you to Ashlie, Lauren, and Reem for all of their help with this campaign!”
