5 Surprising Growth Tactics from Today’s Top Consumer Brands

By | Jun, 27, 2019|Categories: SnackNation Office|

Here’s the thing about established “best practices” -- They won’t be the things that put your brand over the top. Think about it. By the time there’s consensus about which tactics constitute best practices, most brands are already doing them. If you want to stand out from the competition, you have to do things differently. I believe that a significant portion - up to 20% - of your sales and marketing strategies must be experimental if you want to grow. This means trying things that are counterintuitive, have never been done before, that might not scale - or that aren’t even measurable. To learn more about this, I asked some of the best CPG and snack brands in the industry to share their most surprising (and surprisingly successful) growth strategies. Here’s what they shared.

By | Jun, 13, 2019|Categories: SnackNation Office|

Now and again someone sends me a provocatively-titled article, calling for the immediate end to workplace snacking - something along the lines of, “Stop Giving Your Employees Snacks.” But while most of the coverage and commentary I’ve read has focused on the problems associated with these findings, I see an unparalleled opportunity to drive positive change. And if you read beyond the headlines, you'll see that the study's findings don't suggest all office snacking is bad, just the unhealthy variety.

By | May, 30, 2019|Categories: SnackNation Office|

The office break room is too often a mere afterthought. But a thoughtfully designed office break room has the potential to drive employee engagement, catalyze innovation, and reinforce the cultural practices that give a company a competitive edge. In fact, in the workplaces of tomorrow, the break room will be a focal point, not an afterthought. Instead of a remote, lifeless space, the break room will be the beating heart of the organization. Here’s what the office break rooms of tomorrow will look like (and why).

3 Simple Ways Today’s Successful CPG Brands Leverage Data To Win Big

By | Apr, 25, 2019|Categories: SnackNation Office|

A common misconception is that CPG brands only need sophisticated consumer data when things are going wrong. When a product is selling well, it’s easy to get complacent. After all, if it’s not broken, why fix it? The truth is, it’s just as important to leverage data and insights when your brand is flying off the shelf - if you want that growth to last, that is.

CPG at the Speed of Tech

By | Feb, 25, 2019|Categories: SnackNation Office|

Back in my early 20s, I remember thinking that life would get easier as I got older. My attitude then was discipline was hard, not doing stuff that derails my success is tough. One day I'll become good enough that success won’t be difficult, it will become second nature. I couldn’t wait until success would just become automatic. Now that I'm in my mid 30s, I realize that my thinking was entirely wrong.
