Peer-to-Peer Marketing Platform Generated 3,000 In-Home Trials for BABE Wine

The Challenge                                                                                                                                              Canned wine, with BABE being one of the first brands out of the gate, has completely disrupted the beverage industry. BABE Wine, the cute, delicious, take-anywhere bubbly wine in a can, wanted to drive product trials, increase purchase intent and generate authentic recommendations.

Anheuser-Busch In-Bev initiated a creative partnership with Ripple Street, the leading peer-to-peer marketing platform that matches brands with their ideal consumers. This creative collaboration supported BABE Wine in reaching its goal to distribute a delicious “WINE FOR ALL.”

Targeted consumers received Chat Packs and followed guided activities such as visiting local retailers to purchase BABE Wine, taking “shelfies,” and sharing their authentic brand experiences and reviews on social. Participants also conducted extensive post-campaign surveys to give BABE Wine valuable insights.

Of these applicants, 1,000 of the most active brand advocates who lived in key markets in Chicago, IL; Cleveland, Columbus; Cincinnati, OH; Arizona, California, and Nevada, were third-party age verified before receiving their BABE Wine Chat Pack.

Deliver In-Home Product Trials and Engagement                                                                                                       Chat Packs included one $15 gift card to purchase BABE Wine and a branded greeting card with a store locator guide for consumer convenience. Once consumers had the product in hand, they took part in several activities driving trials, social engagement, and product reviews.

Complete Post-Campaign Surveys                                                                                                                                   Sip, sip, hooray!
