  • The days of ROI-positive online-only CPG are over.
  • Retail only is hard bc some consumers want to learn about you online, see reviews, and desire subscription options.
  • Brands need to be online AND in retail to survive, it’s cost-effective and what shoppers want.
  • In-person events are a great way to drive email list growth; Leslie uses a QR code activation at her sample stations and requires an email for the free sample!
  • Email is a great reminder for people that educational content is more sustainable than running offers and sales all the time.
  • Brand experience goes beyond social, email, DTC, and retail. For some brands it can include functional experts. For Vitaminis, this gut doctor, wellness coaches, and nutritionists (vs. TikTok influencers).
  • Sampling is a great way to discover your ideal customer profile. Small chains are a great place to launch sampling programs with lower barriers to entry than Walmart.
