Sellex did a brilliant job helping us develop this Vision, and it's gone down an absolute storm with our retailers... the jump in the TAG survey is largely based on the different approach to selling that we had last year using the Category Vision workSenior Category Manager, Healthcare Company
Once we had implemented this with the client, retailers reacted warmly as it was the first time anyone had taken such a strategic, deliberate approach to activation and category growth.
One of the additional outcomes to this process was that the sales and marketing plans became more closely aligned, meaning our approach to re-energising the client’s category vision had external and internal implications across the brand.
Our work benefitted the client in a number of ways:
- They moved 11 places up the TAG survey* into the top 5 for their category.
- They initiated a merchandising project with one of their top 3 retailers, that they had failed to win in the past.
- The experienced positive feedback from key retailers.
*TAG survey is The Advantage Group survey, an annual measure of suppliers by their buyers in core FMCG categories.
