Marketing success through inspiring packaging - Packaging Innovations Oct 2013

671

Published on

In this presentation given to delegates at Packaging Innovations 2013 in London on 1 October. In it, account director Zoe Wilkins explores how packaging is increasingly used as a viable marketing tool in its own right.

In FMCGs, packaging is a valuable brand mouthpiece. But it can be so much more. Adopting a marketing mindset means you can build your brands further, engage consumers more and engender deeper loyalty and advocacy. We look at how to do this, using examples from three highly successful brands.

  • Over a period of several decades, major demographical, economic and social changes took place on a micro, macro and global level, which transformed the need for, and role of, packaging. Ultimately consumers demanded more and were offered more, which made product differentiation and brand loyalty absolutely critical.
  • It became about standing out from the crowd. Packaging played a huge role in this, and still does. But it’s not only about looking different from everyone else, but genuinely BEING different. Over time, “catching the eye” became
  • Capturing the imagination, capturing the heart. That turns customers into fans and advocates. And that captures the sales. And anyone can do that. A great example of this is Eddie Stobart. As a logistics and storage company, it has a clear b2b customer base, yet you and I can join its Fan Club (current membership 20,000), register the spots we make, buy toy trucks and T-shirts, and attend the annual Stobart Fest – which unfortunately took place 2 weeks ago.
  • Innocent has always been one of my favourite brands when it comes to packaging. This brand has a very clear understanding of its target market (young, urban professionals) – what they value, how they talk and what makes them tick. Probably their top issue is the environment and sustainability. So Innocent is displaying Rainforest Alliance logos on its smoothie packs because all its bananas are Rainforest Alliance certified. Its cartons are made from FSC certified card. Innocent also works with a charity that promotes sustainable agriculture, so its charity activity is well aligned to its audience. And it worked hard to improve the sustainability of its packaging, moving from 50% recycled plastic, to 100% recycled, to 100% renewable and 100% compostable. Very impressive. And my favourite of all – in the absence of widespread recycling options, every Veg Pot gives you an idea of what you could do with your empty plastic pot
  • The other thing Innocent has nailed almost to perfection is dialogue through its packaging. It’s fun, sometimes a bit random, and highly effective. These are some great examples. And in my view, the pièce de resistance, inviting people to write their own copy for the small bottles. And this is, of course, in addition to Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, the Big Knit and everything else that’s everyday life at Fruit Towers. The Innocent Foundation works with NGOs to deliver Innocents vision of sustainable farming for a secure future
  • It’ll be interesting to see the effects of Soap and Glory’s packaging re-think. In its relatively short history, it’s had huge shelf impact with a lot of pink, a retro feel and mischievous product names (Sexy Mother Pucker lipstick and Glow Job moisturiser with radiance). But this summer it’s adopted a cleaner, more clinical look, while retaining key aspects of the previous packaging, especially on cartons. The black and white ladies, boxed out text and – of course – plenty of pink!
  • S&G’s target audience is women aged 16-30, and they’re still pitching their products just right, in my view. In addition to social media statistics we can find online, S&G’s new packaging was blogged about by loads of beauty fans over the summer
