Bells & Whistles

Bells & Whistles reaches a brand new audience with online sampling.

Objective

Bells & Whistles launched a social sampling campaign with SoPost in order to drive trial of their vegan cake slices. Their campaign coincided with a launch of the product in store at major UK supermarket, Morrisons.

Solution

Bells & Whistles and their agency, Social Chain, ran targeted ads on Facebook and Instagram using SoPost’s technology to power the sampling experience, fulfillment and feedback. Qualified consumers were invited to order a vegan cake slice sample.

Results

Consumers who received a sample were contacted via email after their moment of trial to provide feedback and reviews.

SoPost were fantastic in understanding our need of getting our new plant based cake to the right target market. I would highly recommend any marketer who wants to hit a niche market with sampling to consider their service. Very simple but highly effective.
