30 Grocer Marketing Innovations

From Branded Grocer Podcasts to Streamlined Grocer Apps

— May 9, 2018 — Marketing
These grocer marketing innovations range from branded grocer podcasts to streamlined grocer apps. While examples like the SpartanNash mobile app make acquiring rewards and discounts easy for shoppers -- allowing users to collect digitized coupons and earn loyalty points with every purchase -- the 'Inside Trader Joe's' podcast shares the grocer's sustainability-focused ethos while discussing business practices and new products.

Other inventive grocer marketing examples include Waitrose's in-store yoga classes. The fitness sessions promote healthy lifestyle habits that fall in line with the brand's fresh food offering. Additionally, brand activations like the Aldi pop-up wine shop successfully introduced shoppers to the supermarket's private label wines while promoting the range inside an elegant and aesthetically pleasing space -- one that featured wine tastings and educational sessions by seasoned experts.
