Marketing and Stock Solution

Brand requirements and marketing goals are often greater than the budget that is allocated to fulfil those goals, this prevents brands from achieving the stand out they require in a busy consumer landscape. Active allows companies to increase marketing budgets by part paying for the media cost in stock making budgets go further and driving greater impact for your brand.


Case study marketing and stock solution – food and drink

The Challenge

A drinks brand was upgrading one of its products which required current stocks to be sold quickly so as to make way for a new variant.

Our Solution

  1. Active worked with the manufacturer’s media agency to identify Tradable media. By working with Active the client was able to pay for the media plan partly in cash and partly using their excess stock
  2. Active paid for the stock at full wholesale price
  3. Active Traded the stock with various charity, social and media events in exchange for hospitality and tickets
  4. There was further PR for the drinks brand through sampling and presence at the event
