The points of trade promotions are to help companies differentiate a product, increase product visibility, and increase the product purchase rate. The food, beverage, brewery and spirits industries are very competitive spaces, and because of this you not only have to have a great product, but you also need to provide sales incentives (a.k.a. dealer loaders) for buyers to pick your brand over your competitors. 

Let's take a look at how we have helped some of the top beverage companies in the world create the coolest dealer loaders with custom branded bikes. 

COMPANY: High Brew Coffee 

PROMOTION: High Brew Coffee runs national promotions and offers their distributors and retailers a custom High Brew branded cruiser bike as a purchasing incentive for 75+ case orders. Pretty sweet, right? 

RESULTS: Over $375,000 generated in sales 

Brand Benefits:

  • High Brew gets front and center floor real estate in grocery stores. Ex: end of aisle shelf placement (the bigger your dealer loader, the more real estate you get!).
  • High Brew sells more cases of their amazing coffee, increasing their average order size. 
  • High Brew attracts consumers who love and ride bikes (this year the number of trips made by bicycle in the US is over 4 billion!).
  • High Brew gets a moving advertisement from the end-consumer who rides this branded cruiser, which by the way, will last for decades. 
We have seen a lift in sales since the bikes are only supplied with a mandatory case purchase. Our grocery retailers use them in displays, for anniversaries and employee appreciation events.
— Edwina Villegas, Director of Sales at High Brew

 

Distributor Benefits:

  •  Distributors can use the bike as a sales rep incentive. Ex: top performing reps of the month can win the High Brew customer cruiser.
  • Distributor is getting a high quality custom cruiser. Studies show that a cash incentive is neither as memorable nor as effective as a physical gift incentive.    

RETAILER BENEFITS:  

  • Retailers can run a consumer promotion. Ex: Buy 5 High Brew Coffees and you are entered to win this bike 
  • The retailer has a beautiful, free display that will attract shoppers and convert them into customers. Think we're lying? Just ask High Brew or call Whole Foods
  • Pure Fix Cycles is a leading lifestyle retail brand in North America and consumers naturally remember promotions with brands that they recognize
