November 28, 2023

The ever-evolving consumer landscape demands innovative Consumer Sampling strategies, particularly in reaching pivotal life stage moments (POME). The recent Campus Graduating Life Stage Moment Sampling Program executed by UM Marketing demonstrates how targeted sampling can create lasting brand loyalty and new brand users.

Skill 1: Targeted Life Stage Engagement:

This Activation strategically distributed consumer product samples to graduating college seniors and graduate students nationally. By aligning sample distribution with significant life stage milestones, such as graduation, UM ensured our partner’s brand was not only received and tried but also remembered.

Actionable Tip: Align your sampling efforts with key life stage moments to deepen the brand impact.

Common Mistake to Avoid: Avoid generic sampling times; instead, target moments that resonate deeply with your target audience.

Skill 2: Data-Driven Impact:

The success of UM programs is tracked through comprehensive pre and post-surveys, guaranteeing our strategies are continually refined based on concrete data and activation learnings.

Actionable Tip: Use data to tailor and refine your sampling strategies continually.

Common Mistake to Avoid: Don’t base your strategies on old data; always ground them in current data.

Skill 3: Efficient & Effective Reach:

By collaborating with UM Network campus career services and focusing on high-impact touchpoints, UM maximized brand reach while maintaining cost-effectiveness, ensuring a higher return on investment for our CPG partner.

Actionable Tip: Focus on high-impact touchpoints for efficient and effective consumer reach.
