  8. 8. next, we researched -- both quantitatively and qualitatively -- which demographics are actually eating pot pies. Preliminary Research
  9. 9. 9Blake’s All Natural YY Key Stats Out of 100% per demographic, 47% of 55 to 64-year-olds ate frozen pot pies. The next largest demographic was 18 to 24-year-olds at 42% and 25 to 34-year-olds at 41%. Smaller size households have a lesser propensity to cook a meal from scratch, encouraging simple meal preparation options that provide a home-cooked meal solution. Mintel Research preliminary research
  10. 10. 10Blake’s All Natural Key Observations Good slotting in freezers Main purchasers were young Male professionals Whole Foods Key Observations Poor slotting in freezers Section mostly skipped over Elderly shoppers in pot pie aisle Market Basket Store Visits preliminary research
  11. 11. from our preliminary research, we discovered two key target audiences that the blake’s brand should begin to target. Preliminary Research
  12. 12. Targeting Strategy
  13. 13. 13Blake’s All Natural Empty Nester targeting strategy u Seeking daily home-cooked meal, but no longer worth the work for one or two people. Older generation parents (~55) Retired or close to retiring Grew up eating pot pies Out of 100% per demographic, 47% of 55 to 64-year-olds ate frozen pot pies.“ ” Data Courtesy of Mintel
  14. 14. 14Blake’s All Natural Lohas Dude targeting strategy Young Single Male Professional Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability LOHAS Dude+ = Interested in good-for-you home-cooked meal without needing to cook. Weekly Whole Foods visits allows him to stock up on the best. Willing to pay the premium to consume the best quality all natural foods. Men under 35 are least likely to cook their own meals/prepare dinner from scratch. Second largest demographic, out of 100% per demographic, for eating frozen pot pies was 18 to 24-year-olds at 42%, followed by 25 to 34-year-olds at 41%. “ ”“ ”Data Courtesy of Mintel
  15. 15. while empty nesters grew up eating pot pies, lohas dudes grew up with different food products. this opens an opportunity for the blake’s brand to extend its product offering. Targeting Strategy
  16. 16. 16Blake’s All Natural The LOHAS Dude target audience grew up eating the infamous microwable hot pockets -- why not let them enjoy the same concept in a new, natural, and good-for- you form? These pot pockets do not require extensive backend reconfiguration or new supplies; the pot pockets use all the same ingredients as the chicken pot pie, simply repositioned to appeal to the LOHAS dude. Pot Pie Pockets targeting strategy
  17. 17. however, our preliminary research also revealed that blake’s must increase overall brand awareness before targeting specific audiences. Targeting Strategy
  18. 18. 18Blake’s All Natural Marketing Goal Drive awareness for increased ROI. Creative Brief targeting strategy Marketing Promise All natural, tasty frozen meals. Marketing Tone Warm and natural. Marketing Result Increased product trial. Marketing Competition Amy’s Kitchen. Marketing Opportunity Product awareness expansion.
  19. 19. Creative Executions
  20. 20. Alexia Partnership creative executions In order to capitalize on co-marketing opportunities, we propose partnering with Alexia All Natural Foods. The company is rooted in the same all natural mentality as Blake’s, and their products -- such as sweet potato fries -- would be excellent side dishes to a Blake’s pot pie. The designed sticker to the right could be put in Alexia and Blake’s packages to help drive trial of both products, and giving Blake’s further visibility through the Alexia brand.
  21. 21. in order to increase overall product awareness, the blake’s brand should invest time in an innovative, 3-pronged media relations plan. Creative Executions
