Driving trial and consideration, along with digital engagement, through a suite of sampling solutions


Though they like to discover new products, consumers are often reluctant to “buy before they try.” Furthermore, many sampling programs in the marketplace aren’t designed to continue the consumer engagement once a sample is consumed, meaning brands miss out on the opportunity to remain top-of-mind with their audience, following the initial trial experience.


Sampling remains the top marketing tactic to drive purchase consideration (more than coupons or reviews), and consumers continue to seek contactless ways to receive samples at the right time and place, increasing their likelihood to try them.
