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.

This solution could work for you if you...

The Challenge

A well-known retailer was looking to launch an online movie streaming service and wanted to maximise their new customers.

Our Solution

  1. Active worked with the media agency to identify and recommend Tradable opportunities and partners
  2. Active Traded the resultant media spend, and bought back an agreed amount of gift vouchers in cash from the client
  3. Vouchers were Traded with media partners (in return for media space) to be used for staff incentives and reader promotions. The remainder were sold through our Friends & Family site
