Danone

Audit, Survey, Field Research
The challenge

In 2020, Danone / Danio will come on the market with a new Danio variant. The consumer will be able to choose from 3 flavours (liquorice, tompouce or speculaas) which flavour will be produced. Danio asked CPM to collect consumer surveys in selected stores.

Our Solution

We recruited a Danio team that covered 94 supermarkets of Jumbo & Plus. The promoter was standing in front of a fully branded & filled Coolio. Equipped with an I-pad and a branded T-shirt, they asked the consumer; "Which flavour do you prefer?" The consumer was able to vote on the I-pad, by selecting his favourite flavour. This project was also supported by a social media campaign, so people were able to vote online.

Results

And the new flavour is……. Tompouce. In 2020 we finally can taste this new flavour.

  • We collected 26.000 votes in store
  • 100% store coverage
  • Good quality promotors

Jumbo

The challenge

Jumbo supermarkets are constantly building a new formula to offer the best service, the largest and best assortment and the lowest price. For this reason, they convert existing stores to the latest, newest concept and build new stores. To achieve this, they need staff with the right experience and knowledge. In CPM they found a partner to help them remodeling the stores.

Our Solution

We have developed a training course. This includes a shelf remodeling module at the office, an e-learning and a day in the field to learn and experience all assets of the job.

The team leader is an experienced convenience store manager/- owner.
We can guarantee quality, speed and efficiency by making each team member responsible for his/her own product groups. This made us the preferred supplier for remodeling the Jumbo stores in the Benelux.

Goodyear

Sales Promotion
The challenge

Goodyear asked CPM Netherlands to help with the promotion of Goodyear tires at various dealers like Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar/Landrover and BMW. At first Goodyear needed market information before they could roll-out the promotion wave. For wave 1 the goal was to gather information by completing a survey per dealer. In the 2nd wave the promotion team did a promotion around a campaign, where dealers received a discount by ordering a certain amount of tires. The end goal for this promotion is to gather information, to increase the Goodyear visibility at the dealers and to promote the campaign, so the dealers will buy and sell more Goodyear tires.

Our Solution

We created a team of 2 enthusiastic female sales promoters. They received an intensive training, enough POS materials and a mini with Goodyear tires. In the first wave they asked the dealers to participate in a small survey. In this round they received information, so we could measure the potential for Goodyear at all the dealers. Based on this information we organized wave 2, where the promoters were able to place POS materials and sell in the campaign.

CPM Responsibilities:

  • Make the dealers participate in the survey
  • Create a sell-in plan based on the gathered information
  • Place POS materials
  • Sell-in the campaign

Results

  • We were able to explain the campaign at 89% of the visited dealers.
  • At 81% of the dealers we were able to talk about the market and the campaign
  • The outcome of the waves was so successful, that Goodyear decided to do 4 waves with CPM the next year
