Verve identified a segment based on social chatter around fruits, vegetables, philanthropy, and exercise, and also geo-fenced retailers who sold the juice.
In addition to driving foot traffic to retailers for one of its juice lines, an internationally distributed CPG brand, in partnership with a non-profit organization that focuses on America’s dietary crisis in under-served communities, strove to increase awareness about the lack of access millions of Americans have to affordable, quality fresh fruits and vegetables.
In addition to targeting its typical juice drinkers with a custom audience segment of dynamic doers, premium juice purchasers, and marathon- and fitness-event attendees, Verve™ also sought out consumers who may be interested in social causes. Thus, Verve identified charity donors and volunteers as well as a segment based on social chatter around fruits, vegetables, philanthropy, and exercise. In addition to identifying target audience segments, Verve geo-fenced retailers who sold the juice, reaching nearby people and driving consideration at the moment of purchase.
Verve developed effective messaging to engage the targeted audience by using a standard banner and a geo-aware expandable Tap to Map ad format. Consumers could locate the nearest retailer and get turn-by-turn directions with a tap, or they could tap to a landing page that promoted the brand’s participation in the social cause. Every time consumers engaged with the social campaign run by the non-profit organization, the brand donated produce to neighborhoods in need.

Technology goliaths such as Facebook and Twitter have been held to a radically different standard in the marketplace, and their impunity has damaged innovation and the media.
All too often, the challenges around ad delivery transparency and auditing the supply chain are assumed to be out of reach. One concept that isn’t on the table, however, but it should be, is a trustless peer-to-peer ad network.
The time for in-app video is undoubtedly now, but the question remains: what steps can publishers, advertisers, and marketers take to stay on the path of accelerated growth?
