We approach every year’s gifting season with a fresh mind and our clients need at the forefront of our strategic planning. For 2020 we knew we needed to optimise stock sell through and support with increasing gifting sales vs 2019. We pulled together a four-pronged plan for the field team with changes to ways of working and new exciting, targeted incentives.
The team approached the season with energy and drive ensuring no opportunity was left unturned. We designed new point of sale and adapted our in-store tactics which combined lead to an impressive increase to the numbers of displays sited. The incentives added fun and a healthy competitiveness to the busy festive months keeping the team motivated to keep pushing for more.
We adapted our call files based on data analysis to target a wider number of stores and trained the team to use an inventory tracker to drive sell through of high stock volumes.
We kept our strategy the key focus over these busy two months with regular team meetings, updates and reviews to ensure success.
The two key outcomes we wanted to achieve for our client were supporting with gifting stock sell through and to increase their overall gifting sales. Following our multi-faceted approach to the season we returned some fantastic results for our client. Their gifting sales vs prior year increased by 17%* they also saw a huge improvement in gifting stock sell through of 80% in Tesco vs 27% LY and 90% in Asda vs 55% LY**.
