Welcome to Graham Group Promotions Online! Building Stronger Brands
On-pack and in-pack promotions are just one of the many promotional techniques available to today's marketer. They are successfully used to generate trial, increase purchase frequency of a product, announce or explain a product change or introduce a new product. This promotional technique leverages the package -- a direct communication link with your consumer. And, it's economical because of its low delivery cost as compared to other promotional tools.

The Sara Lee Fresh Bread "Win a GE Profile Kitchen" Promotion

The “Win a GE Profile Kitchen promotion was a unique combination of Instant Win and Collect & Win promotions. Consumers had two ways to win. Every game card contained an ‘instant win’ coupon and a collectable sticker.

Game boards were distributed through an FSI and were available on the in-store POS. Official game pieces were in-packed in Sara Lee bread.

To insure a smooth operational execution, Graham Group worked directly with the bag manufacturer and created a custom piece thin enough to be able to inserted without any negative impact on the production through-put.

Topic #7 – Put the Right People On Your Promotional Team

When planning and executing in-pack or on-pack promotions, it is important to get the right people involved at the very beginning. It can save you a lot of headaches down the road.

Often overlooked, the input of the Operations Department is critical. The physical execution of the program can make or break your program before it even hits the eyes of the consumer. Involve the Operations people even at the plant level. They know their equipment and can provide you with invaluable insight as to what will and will not work on their equipment.

The last thing you want to do is create a piece that won’t run on the plant’s equipment and cause the plant a lot of inefficiencies or down time. If that happens, it is almost guaranteed that you will never run another in-pack or on-pack promotion at that facility.

Put the Operations guy on your team at the planning stage. You may have created a can’t miss concept, but with out execution at your plant it’s dead in the water.
