A new product launch is a crucial moment. You want to drive awareness and seed reviews for other channels, but you also want intelligence on how consumers respond to your messaging and your product so you can refine your approach. It’s a time to both educate and learn.
For Clinique, a SoPost sampling campaign in Switzerland helped accomplish all those goals.
To generate awareness and trials of the brand new Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation, Clinique ran a dual-language, German and French, SoPost sampling campaign across Facebook and Instagram. The campaign drove 5,000 trials of the new foundation and, just as importantly, provided a rich trove of data for the team, including:
In addition to getting samples of the new foundation into the hands of Swiss consumers, this campaign gave the Clinique team valuable insights to inform their future marketing. For example, they discovered that skin benefits such as hydration were the factors consumers valued most about foundation products, creating an opportunity to test that message at the conversion phase.
SoPost’s follow-up emails also gathered information about what other foundation Swiss consumers use, creating a better understanding of its competitive set.
