“Social Nature was a helpful tool as we looked to expand into new regions. As a primarily retail brand, it is so valuable to see demographics, shopping habits, and honest feedback on quality, packaging, and pricing. This compiled with guaranteed sales and email opt-ins added a lot of value to our marketing efforts. The data collected was particularly helpful for the next iteration of our packaging design."

"Across the 3 Social Nature campaigns we ran this past year, we saw stellar, above benchmark performances and were successfully able to capture nearly 9,000 reviews across both our Pete & Gerry’s and Nellie’s Free Range brands. In addition, the consumer insights collected and shared via the user-friendly dashboard and post-campaign recap calls have helped us gain a greater understanding of our target audience and their perceptions of our brand and the broader egg category. I’d wholeheartedly recommend Social Nature to any brand seeking to support and drive trial for new product or retail launches, with the significant added benefit of collecting actionable consumer data to share in both external retailer and internal brand & product development conversations."

Libby Schwab

Director of Marketing, Pete & Gerry's
“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!”

"Social Nature has been a transformative tool for AKUA. It allowed us to connect with consumers, understand their preferences, and gather demographic insights useful for every department of our company. We used this valuable data to improve sales presentations, implement targeted marketing campaigns, and even spark innovation for future product iterations. I highly recommend this platform for understanding and enhancing the consumer experience. We will absolutely be working with them again."

Kalli Gillmer

Director of Marketing, AKUA
"The results from the Social Nature campaign exceeded my expectations. The data is great and the purchase intent was higher than expected. The number of reviews captured will also be amazing to repurpose on our website and the email opt-ins will be useful to re-engage with consumers. All the data and insights gathered will be helpful in negotiating with some of the retailers we are trying to expand into."

Andriy Ahapov

Senior Brand Manager, Healthy Hippo
"We loved partnering with Social Nature for their Try It Out Tuesday social giveaway. Working with their team was super simple – we packed up the giveaway box, shipped it to their office and their team took it from there, creating a fun and engaging video to post on social. As a collaboration post, the giveaway had over twice the engagement of our next best giveaway."

Roberta Greenspan

Sr. Director of Marketing, Lundberg Family Farms
"Social nature is a wonderful alternative to costly in-store demos, and allows our brand to reach highly engaged consumers that are far more likely to come back and purchase. This has been a wonderful velocity driver and trial vehicle for our frozen products. On the back end, the insights dashboard allows us to pull pre and post campaign data to see how the perception of our product shifted after trial, as well as share valuable shopper insights with our customers.

The day to day project team is also very helpful and very responsive, so you have help every step of the way.

Thank you Social Nature!"

Lucia Caamano

Marketing Director, Quorn Foods
"Social Nature gave us the opportunity to learn more about prospective and existing consumers of our products. We learned about where they shop, what resonates most with them about our brand, and key demographic information. We were able to leverage these insights for sales presentations, demo positioning, marketing campaigns, and more. I definitely recommend using this platform to better understand your consumer and improve upon their experience. This was also a good way to seed out innovation and potential product iterations that consumers would be excited about seeing from us in the future!"

Caroline Ponsi

Sales Director, Mmmly
“For a product like ours which is more difficult to sample since it is refrigerated in store, Social Nature creates trial with the customer segment we are targeting within the Natural/Wellness channel. Understanding the consumer helps our company fine tune our strategy to market and communication with consumers. Their system keeps getting better with the addition of the new Insights dashboard that allows to slice the data and use it in presentations to new retailers and investors. Social Nature is part of our company’s launch strategy with every new retailer. Thank you, Social Nature!”

"The platform provides an excellent combination of velocity generation as well as ratings and reviews so I want to partner on future product launches, of which we'll have some coming!"

"We really like the new Social Nature Insights Dashboard and you can tell it was well thought out. It is both easy to navigate and appears very user-friendly. We especially appreciate the demographic data that is provided in the Member Profile Data section which shares the household data, purchasing behavior, and store preferences. The additional filter capability will also be helpful for us to slice and dice the data according to the insights we are trying to pull and share with retail buyers."

Hasan Siber

Founder and CEO, Colive
“Social Nature was an important part of launching our brand, CHKN Not Chicken. First, they allowed us to target shoppers of our anchor retailer, Sprouts, which focused our investment where we needed it most. Second, they ensured we sampled our product with shoppers that were excited about plant-based options. We also received a ton of data about our category, about our brand, product attributes, and consumer behavior. The program would have been worth the investment for the data alone. The team at Social Nature was professional, proactive, and guided us every step of the way. This was our first Social Nature program but it will not be our last.”

Brian Pope

Co-Founder and CEO, CHKN not Chicken
Social Nature continues to help us support our product launches with real, valuable consumer feedback. For example, we just launched a new format of Seaweed Snack packaging (finally, no plastic tray!), and the Social Nature community spoke and confirmed that our Trayless Seaweed Snacks offer the same amount of seaweed and equal seaweed-snacking experience with less “annoying extra plastic”* waste. We’ve affirmed that seaweed-snackers don’t like having the plastic tray inside and that it is not necessary. This is a win-win for consumers (less waste) and retailers (more efficiency in transit and on shelf).

We love Social Nature for building direct customer interactions that provide reviews & feedback for R&D and affirmation of concepts and drive trial for new and existing products.

Matt Ryan

Chief Marketing Officer & Co-Officer of Sustainability
“Launching a new brand in the midst of COVID has proven to be tough; we knew that we needed to get the product out into the hands of our core consumers in a big yet strategic way, and Social Nature was exactly the platform that we needed! The Social Nature members have proven to be right on target with our demographic – health conscious, educated, insightful. We utilized their pre trial insights to help narrow our brand story, and will continue to use their post trial insights to build the strategic future in terms of innovation, target retailers and attributes to really highlight. The entire program from the start to the very end has been buttoned up, organized, and well communicated, and we are so excited to have these members continue to trial and enjoy our product!”

Jayme Brown

Marketing Director, Bon Devil
“As an emerging brand in the instant quinoa category, Social Nature’s direct-to-consumer campaign helped me gain valuable consumer insights and actionable feedback. Keen One Quinoa puts a lot of emphasis on customer satisfaction, and understanding more about what our customers liked and didn’t like will clarify our future marketing and community-building efforts.

The biggest highlight was the ease of use and organization of the platform to simplify the process. SN had a great template and custom question laid out prior to the onboarding call that was easy to edit and streamline to get the best results from customer surveys. This allowed for us to gain insights on what customers thought about our products prior to sampling and post sampling.

SN allowed us to pinpoint the attributes customers enjoy most about our products. It also showed us which retailers they would be interested in purchasing which is also very helpful.”

Christopher Algea

Founder + President, Keen One Quinoa
“Being able to see the sampling campaign data and filter it in real-time is awesome. It’s really easy to read and we’re definitely using the data to pitch to retailers.

What we’re capturing here is user feedback and store-level data to keep a pulse on our brand. Unlike other data which can be hard to dig through, this data populates in real-time and is easy to understand what’s happening with our brand across retailers.”

Chris Senter

Marketing Manager, Bakery On Main
“When I decided to work with Social Nature, I hoped to drive trial and continue increasing velocities at an important account for us. What I didn’t realize was that I would also gain important insights about our customer base and how they think about our product and our category. Our learnings have ended up impacting everything from our packaging design to our pitch deck. As the cherry on top, the Social Nature team members are true professionals: super smart, responsive, and kind. I would recommend Social Nature to any CPG brand.”

Emily Groden

I look forward to using the results to better understand our ideal customer, promote brand authority through testimonials and nurture the new customers who enjoyed our product!”

Rachel Dolecheck

Marketing Manager, Crafty Counter
“The unique value of Social Nature is how it crosses marketing boundaries. Aside from helping us support our key retailers, the cross-platform deliverables also provided us market research, product reviews, and social content. It’s not easy to collect this type of rich, retail-specific consumer feedback when a product is bought off a store shelf. Social Nature’s customer success team has been amazing at helping us build and optimize the program and are super-responsive throughout the process.”

Francine Sternthal

Vice President, Marketing, Fody Foods
Social Nature has become a really important platform in the natural products world helping many brands launch & scale.

I love the combination of in-store trial and online reviews. The in-store trial helps me support my retailers, increases awareness for new products, and supports repeat purchases.

Social Nature’s insights capabilities also help me quickly validate product-market fit and identify practical ways to optimize my products, drive more innovation and brand growth. I launch about 10 new products per year – with Social Nature I have a 90% success rate (compared to 70% failure rate as is common to most CPG). If you’re a high growth brand with lots of innovation decisions and new distribution ahead of you – Social Nature is who you want to partner with.”

Robert Mock

Founder and CEO, Ocean’s Halo
“It’s always been a pleasure working with the Social Nature team over the last three years. We love that true and complete shopper journeys are created with our campaigns, from finding the product in store, moving it off shelf, trial, and reviewing. The insights we receive are so valuable to sales, marketing, and innovation. The Social Nature team is client-centered and flexible, a true joy to work with.“

"We tested demand for a variety of new products during our campaign with Social Nature and learned that consumers wanted us to launch a new Rotini Veggie Pasta. We used this insight to help us get this new product launched and listed in retailers. We can't wait to tell consumers that we heard them, and the product will soon be available in stores near them!"

Kate Nees

Caitlin Pellas

Director of Marketing, Nourish Organics
“I appreciate how you turn free sampling into a data collection opportunity, I will be presenting these product insights to my R&D team, marketing team for positioning, and sales team for buyer conversations.

Austin Allan

Senior Brand Manager, Dr. Praeger’s


"We really enjoyed our experience working with Social Nature. Using the consumer feedback, we were able to compile qualitative data to adjust the pricing of our products across the board. In addition, we captured valuable insights regarding the baking process of our products which we enabled us to make manufacturing improvements. Beyond the great insights, Social Nature was an amazing tactic to introduce new consumers to our brand upon launch of a brand new product line, to support our key retailers and, most importantly to drive trial and immediate velocity in stores."

The insights Social Nature helped us capture is extremely valuable to a brand like ours. From a marketing perspective, they allow us to understand our positioning and ideal target market better. The fact that all of the data comes from qualified customers who live around our key retail accounts makes the data even more actionable. Access to all of the data through the insights dashboard, along with the ability to filter by shopper store data and competitor brands is extremely valuable for our sales teams to build a narrative to pitch to retail buyers and grow within our category. From start to finish, we are extremely pleased with the service provided.

On top of that, I’m able to see what customers value most about our products and have been able to adjust our marketing accordingly. The new Insights Dashboard is game changing as I can cut real customer data in whichever way would be most valuable/effective for a particular retailer.”

Nikki Seaman

“Working with the Social Nature was a dream! We were not only able to have extremely actionable results, but their team developed the results in such a visual way that we were able to make changes immediately. Listening to your brand’s grocery customers first-hand is usually incredibly difficult, but Social Nature has created a way to let a brand ask the much needed questions before and after purchase. We highly recommend using Social Nature to not only increase in-store purchases, but also to gain insightful feedback from your in-store customers.”

M’Kenzie Steel

Omnichannel Marketing Director, Daily Crunch Snacks
“Our goal with Social Nature was to increase brand awareness and introduce our products to a new consumer base and drive trial. Not only did this platform introduce our brand and products to new customers, the reviews and quality of data provided back to our team is invaluable. We gained quality customer reviews that we were able to push through to our retail websites, incredible insights from our campaign, plus sampling to customers with high re-purchase intent. We look forward to working with Social Nature again!”

Caitlyn McAniff

On the retail side, we now have rich data for our buyer meetings – brand awareness, future purchase intent, and the stores where their consumers shop.“

Erin Kelley

Director of Product, Comvita USA

We recommend other brands utilize Social Nature as well. We like the setup of the platform and the overall member experience since it is very targeted based on which campaigns members can actually get into.

“Social Nature is a win-win-win — a win for brands, a win for consumers, and a win for retailers. If you’re a high-growth brand focused on growing your velocity and sell-thru at retailers you need Social Nature. I’ve stopped doing traditional demos and am shifting my budget to Social Nature’s digital product sampling for better targeting and results.

Alison Cayne

“I just wanted to double down on this review to say we get a lot of solicitations for places to spend our marketing dollars. We are careful about the places where we spend that precious cash and more often than I enjoy admitting, we regret the decision. Without a doubt, the best money we have spent on marketing to date has been with Social Nature. Thank you for giving us a real means by which to reach customers, learn about them, and satisfy our retailer partners. We look forward to partnering with you in the future.”

Tate Glasgow

VP of Marketing, Killer Creamery
“Even if physical demos are available, the level of sophistication that Social Nature provides in terms of targeting and communication with customers is virtually impossible for a small brand like ours outside this platform.

Some of our best endorsements on our website are from the Social Nature product reviews, which has been extremely helpful in giving new customers a picture of what the product tastes like and how it could fit into their everyday life.

We have not found a program with a better ROI for learning directly from our customers. We have gained a much deeper understanding of who our customer is, what they care about, and how to best communicate our value proposition.”

Jake Kneller

Co-Founder, Sweet Nothings
“Product demos have been a pain point for emerging brands for a long time. They are a necessary evil that is expensive, inefficient and unmeasurable. Social Nature solves many of these pain points by creating a demoing process that is much more targeted to potentially super loyal consumers of your brand. You also gain valuable insights from surveys and reviews. The old playbook was having people demo in-store. The new playbook is digital product sampling.

“We are a small brand and have had a tough time getting any data due to lack of funds! When we interacted with Social Nature reps - we were impressed not only by the breadth and depth of data we could get about our “potential” customer segment but also how flexible the team was in helping us navigate through the best solution with the fund limitations we had.
The investment is totally worth it. We got affirmation about the USPs of our brand and the best part - we could extract data in varied ways to support our future pitches to new customers and provide reassuring data to current customers.We would highly recommend them for any brand!”

Nishita Shah

"The entire Social Nature team was a joy to work with. They were available, knowledgeable, and understanding of our specific needs. They were proficient, helping us foresee potential execution obstacles, thus leading us through an almost seamless campaign. The Insights Dashboard and analysis by Social Nature helped support one of our hypotheses with statistically significant data. We then used this data in a review with our category manager, and ultimately convinced a major trade partner of the need for improved store placement, increasing our velocity."

Elliott Cohen

Director of Finance, Ritual Beverage Company
“One thing that digital product sampling does well and captures the buyer’s attention is this: telling them that you’ll send 1000 of their customers to their store to buy your product. This is incremental dollars in the retailer’s pocket. Buyers feel confident knowing that you have a proactive plan to drive trial and the products won’t just sit on the shelf.”

Paul Vogue

Co-Founder, Aura Bora
“It’s been a pleasure working with the Social Nature team. Their attention to detail and speed of answering all our questions and executing on our additional data requests is definitely noted.

Social Nature has been a really valuable tool for Natural Calm to get new people trying our products and turn them into customers. We know that for our products, trial is so important because consumers need to feel the benefits in order to believe it. In our last campaign, we loved seeing that 83% of people who tried our product were interested in buying it, and 81% felt calmer afterwards. We plan to continue working with Social Nature to support the launches of our new products in 2022.

I have been thrilled with the measured new customer acquisition, where consumers raise their hand, show interest, and ultimately come back to Social Nature to write their review.

Tonya Skurzynski

Chief Revenue Officer, Frunutta
We had a wonderful experience working with Social Nature to help launch a new supplement product, leveraging their unique programs to assist with initial product design as well as drive a successful launch in market. We tested product benefits with their audience upfront to understand preferences and optimal product features, and then used their sampling program at launch to get feedback and product reviews on the final product, while spreading awareness among a passionate group of consumers. The combination of these activities allowed us to develop and launch a successful product! Social Nature’s consumer base is a great fit for our plant-based brand – we loved the added benefit of their shared social posts and warm recommendations.“

Farrell Rodd

“Social Nature is a true business partner. They cared about our customers and our campaign as if it was their own and really went the extra mile to help ensure its success. From account management to customer service we felt supported the entire time. As a first time brand partnering with Social Nature we have seen a full recovery of the cost of our investment, received over 150 customer reviews of our new product, and as a subscription business, over 25% of customers purchased at least a second time. We are quite please with these results and highly recommend Social Nature as a potential trial partner.“

“Directly due to the reviews we’ve received from the Social Nature campaigns, many of our products now have the most reviews in their categories – beating out our competitors at major retailers like Target.

We’ve been able to use this data in key meetings to show how we know our products will be successful, both in-store and online.

What I appreciate about Social Nature’s over 70% response rate is that we’re getting a better sense of honest feedback from the larger set of in-between consumers who don’t normally leave reviews elsewhere.”

Director of Brand Marketing, Genexa


“Social Nature is an efficient, well-run product sampling and consumer insights program for our CPG clients. Our client has reported an astounding 80% redemption rate on the free trial coupons that Social Nature distributed to their members – this demonstrates that Social Nature has the right consumer for our brands. We will absolutely be recommending our client renew their annual subscription, as a best in class sampling program for impact at retail.”

“The consumer insights we’ve gained through Social Nature’s product sampling programs have helped us in 3 key ways: 1) we’ve adjusted our digital ad targeting and creative based on who expressed interest in our products and why they wanted to try them, 2) we updated the design of our product packaging to highlight top ranked product attributes, 3) it helped us understand more about the profile of each our shoppers at each of our key retailers. With such a huge quantity of members across our focus retailers and markets, we couldn’t pay for better research anywhere else.”

“We’ve decided to spend a large percentage of our marketing budget on future campaigns with Social Nature as they can bridge digital with brick and mortar. We’d be crazy not to tap into this ‘social review’ power.

We can talk to retailers all day about what the ‘natural’ consumers tell us about our products, but Social Nature gives us that proof and validation, with visualized data to back it up. The proactive pre-trial data and reactive post-trial data social nature provides gives crucial insight into a consumer’s journey with the EarthKind brand during this process. This is what our buyers want to see to make their category decision. We also love the consistent stream of new reviews from engaged shoppers available at our fingertips.”

“I had a fantastic experience working with Social Nature on our Astroglide sampling campaign. I loved the ease of execution in getting the samples into the hands of new consumers, and seeing all of the awesome results and insights come from the reviews.

“Social Nature has built a digital-first platform, backed by some amazing CPG investors, that helps brands drive very targeted user acquisition/trial, generate online reviews, and seed tons of social engagement.

In many ways it’s a more cost-effective & retail-first version of what Amazon does with their Vine program to build a groundswell of traction to help launch products.

Annalea & Social Nature have become a really important platform in the natural products world helping many brands launch & scale. We’ve been impressed by how engaged their community is, their level of service, and the quick results they drive for growing brands like ours.
