ACT 1% NSW 32% VIC 30% QLD 14% SA 10% WA 10% TAS 3% Hello I’m Venus commissioned a survey of women to determine their perceptions and buying behaviours towards alcohol brands in Australia. The survey was conducted online from 25 to 28 February, 2014 using the Pureprofile consumer research panel. A total of 402 women between the ages of 21 and 45 years participated in the survey. There was an even representation of age segments 26–45 years, with a lesser representation from the 21–25 years segment in this study. The majority of respondents were located in New South Wales (32%) and Victoria (30%) and a total of 76% of respondents resided in the eastern states of Australia. Ten per cent of respondents were located in South Australia; ten per cent in Western Australia and the residual four per cent were located in the Territories and Tasmania. In addition to these segmentation parameters, respondents were also required to have consumed alcohol in the past twelve months. ABOUT THESURVEY helloimvenus.com/#venuslabn=402
  4. 4. 4 The current survey confirms the popular view that alcohol advertising is heavily targeted to men. The initial recall of advertising was low, with only one-in-three women clearly recalling any advertising for an alcohol brand. COULD NOT RECALL ANY ALCOHOL ADVERTISING. 68% helloimvenus.com/#venuslab Alcohol advertising recall amongst women n=410 Question: Can you recall any advertising for alcohol brands or products (including all popular beer, wine, spirits, etc.)?
  5. 5. 5 Of the women who recalled an advert, 54% recalled a beer advertisement; a category traditionally targeting male consumers. The next highest recalled category was spirits (20%) followed equally by wine and cider (13%). Women that were most likely to recall alcohol advertising were those 31–35 years and 41–45 years, or women living on the eastern coast of Australia. Women 21 to 25 years were least likely to recall any alcohol advertising (74%) as were those living in Western Australia (79%).

  6. 6. 6 Beer advertising Of those women who reportedly recalled alcohol advertising, over half recalled a beer ad. However of these women, one-in-three couldn’t recall the brand responsible for the advertisement. I can’t remember what brand of beer it was but it was about doing something good for your mouth (as opposed to lying that you loved someone). I remember it because the mouth jumped off the person’s face and that really grossed me out. I wish I could forget the ad. Of the 75% of women who could clearly recall the beer brand responsible, one-in-five recalled a Carlton beer ad followed by VB (16%) and Tooheys (8%). Where the brand was recalled, the story or scenario could vividly be recounted, confirming Venus’ belief that storytelling is one of the most powerful means to gain the attention of women. helloimvenus.com/#venuslab “ “ The Carlton beer ad where couples are on holiday, guys all run into each other at the resort and pretend it was a coincidence – hilarious! “ “

  8. 8. 8 The one beer product in this category that is heavily targeted to females — low kilojoule beer, received limited recall and in each case the ad provoked a negative emotional response.

  9. 9. 9 One-in-five women recalled advertisements for a spirit product, of which a third recalled a vodka ad — Smirnoff being the only vodka brand recalled. Spirit advertising 92% helloimvenus.com/#venuslab COULD NOT RECALL BRANDS RESPONSIBLE FOR VODKA ADVERTISING.
  10. 10. 10 Of the women who recalled cider advertising, 60% recalled the 5 Seeds ad. Interestingly, this was also the only cider brand identified as advertising to women. 29% of these women could not recall the cider brand responsible, and 18% recalled Rekorderlig — but none of the women surveyed felt this brand was advertising to them. Cider advertising This category — traditionally targeting women — had no immediate recall. This demonstrates a significant inability for alcohol brands to develop advertising campaigns that have a lasting impression on women. It was only when respondents were prompted to recall advertising for a female-focused alcohol brand that this category was represented (albeit marginally). Premix drinks advertising helloimvenus.com/#venuslab “5 Seeds Cider grabbed my attention, was the two guys dressed as girls riding the bike and the music. “
  11. 11. 11 Considered the other female-friendly alcohol category, wine brands are doing a better job at creating a lasting impression on women. This was also the only category where women recalled below-the-line advertising channels including in store, online and in app. Wine advertising helloimvenus.com/#venuslab Banrock Station ads on Spotify. Have just heard it lots... you can get a design on a tote bag or something. The Arrogant Frog wine ads in Dan Murphy’s. “ “ “ “

Alcohol brands’ engagement of women Women in Western Australia were the most likely to feel that alcohol brands understand and market to women despite this region having the lowest alcohol brand advertising recall rate. This indicates that women in Western Australia feel a positive response towards alcohol advertising yet not a strong, long lasting connection. Women in Victoria have the second-highest alcohol advertising recall rate (32%), however they were the most likely to feel that alcohol brands are failing to connect. helloimvenus.com/#venuslab
  17. 17. 17 The findings on top influencers when it comes to trying new products, firmly confirms Venus’ understanding of women. 63% of women reported they are most influenced by those around her; friends (27%), partners (22%) and family (14%). This aligns with Venus Lab’s previous findings, that word-of-mouth is the most valuable influencer when marketing to women. In line with previous Venus Lab research, price is number three or four in the top four determinants when it comes to purchasing a new product/s. This conforms with the cultural behaviour of women being responsible for the household budget and trying to extend every dollar as far as possible.

  19. 19. 19 Nearly one-in-five women indicated that they felt somewhat less comfortable identifying with alcohol brands than men. This is perhaps a hang-over from past social attitudes associated with women and alcohol. Younger women, aged 21–30 years, represented the greatest number of women who felt this way. However, they also represent the group that felt more comfortable with being identified with alcohol brands in general — exposing a split in perception and attitudes amongst this segment. When it comes to identifying more or less with alcohol brands, the vast majority of women felt neutral. 62% have a passive mindset around identifying themselves with alcohol brands, this suggests a movement in women feeling emotionally devoid when it comes to being identified with alcohol brands.
