Rethinking Marketing to Grow CPG Businesses

This point of view summarises our cross-sector experience, and extensive in-depth conversations with marketing, Ecomm and D2C leaders in global CPG businesses. The digital revolution has fundamentally altered the way we shop, and the way we interact with each other and with brands. CMOs therefore need to evolve their role to unlock future brand and enterprise growth. We explore the five essential priorities for CPG marketers to drive value from direct consumer relationships, equipping them with tools to address challenges in each focus area.

Mind the Gap: have financial services lost the human touch?

This report summarises the findings of our independent research, where we set out to explore whether customers were changing their behaviour as a result of uncertainty and economic circumstances, who they trusted and why. We reveal the four drivers of trust and explain what companies need to do to deliver lifetime value through emotional trust, and uncover what we can learn from the best.

Reframing Marketing For Growth

Engagement Economics

Brought to you by Team Pugpig, Manifesto Growth Architects and In Digital, The Engagement Economics Report, aims to unpick the relationship between engagement and commercial value by breaking down the levers that you can control; the audience that you attract, the actions that you make them take and how active you encourage them to be. Ultimately, our goal is to help you build an engagement strategy that will materially increase audience value.

Creating Winning D2C Propositions

Consumer goods companies seek to build direct relationships with their consumers. This doesn’t mean replacing the traditional retail model, but complementing it with new revenue streams. Going D2C offers the opportunity to attract new customers with new propositions, drive repeat purchases, cross-sell your product portfolio and build a brand halo. But it isn’t easy, requiring new marketing and sales channels, new data capabilities and a complex model of fulfilment.

The Loyalty Code

Within this report, we explore how digital acceleration and the Covid-19 pandemic have changed the way we shop. Through surveying UK consumers and conducting interviews with market-leading businesses, we have unlocked the combination to everlasting customers in a digital world. The Loyalty Code gives you the keys to transforming customer value and retention in your business.
