UK: Organic. Naturally Different campaign results
by Redaktion (comments: 0)
The results from the evaluation of the recent Organic. Naturally Different campaign for May are now in. Awareness of the campaign is good compared to the other campaigns: 21% of organic shoppers in London (the target market) have seen one of the campaign adverts compared to an industry average of 9%.

The results show that the campaign is sending the right messages to organic consumers about the benefits of organic and encouraging them to buy organic products. 97% of organic shoppers aware of the campaign believe it is likely to encourage people to buy organic food and 95% intend to buy organic in the next fortnight. Those that recalled seeing the campaign are also more likely than non recallers to believe organic is healthier (80% vs 75%), safer to eat (79% vs 70%) and worth it (73% vs 57%). The research also show that as many as 16% of organic shoppers are from the C2DE (skilled working class, working class and non-working) socio economic group and that those organic shoppers are very committed. 80% purchase organic at least once every two weeks and 60% do so weekly.
The collaboration with the on-line retailer mySupermarket.co.uk showed how the campaign has driven a real increase in organic sales: the campaign drove a huge increase in daily visitor numbers to the organic aisles, from under 20,000 to over 150,000 per day; the share of organic products per trolley went up by 3.7% in value and up 4.8% in volume compared to the previous month; and the campaign increased market share in categories where there was a creative (chocolate, carrot, apple). The Facebook promoted post on "Thrifty Organic" was shown 119,260 times, reaching a total of 104,359 Facebook users and drove 3,099 post engagements. It achieved well above the average levels of engagement and high average click through rates of 3.75% against a Facebook average of 1%. More information is available here and here.
