Product Sampling

Product Sampling

AMBIENT HAVE PROVIDED PRODUCT SAMPLING CAMPAIGNS SINCE 2002. WHETHER IT’S GUERRILLA SAMPLING ON HIGH STREETS OR LARGE-SCALE SAMPLING EVENTS IN SHOPPING CENTRES, SAMPLING IS A FANTASTIC DRIVER OF SALES AND BRAND PERCEPTION AND AWARENESS AMONGST CONSUMERS.

what are the benefits of product sampling?

The Event Marketing Institute recently conducted extensive research that found that consumers were 96% more inclined to purchase having experienced a product.

The old adage of ‘try before you buy’ has never been more relevant for consumers today when faced with more and more choice on shelves.

By giving them the opportunity to try something before purchase you are automatically equipping them with more information to inform their purchases.

Distributing a money-off voucher with your product samples is also an excellent way of encouraging future purchase and tracking the success of your sampling campaign.

Product sampling doesn’t always have to be just that. More and more brands are extending the engagement on sampling campaigns by introducing additional elements including photo capture mechanics, brand theatre, immersive experiences and ambient media.

Check out our case studies with Clinique, Carling Cider and Burt’s Bees to see this in action.
