And we’re ready to be your new secret weapon.

Challenges Facing Alcohol Marketing

In addition to having to navigate complying with standard alcohol industry advertising regulations, you’ve recognized that captive audiences are hard to come by. You don’t need pages of data to know that audience attention is split; audiences have more choices of what to watch and where to watch it than ever before. Audiences don’t watch what’s on, they watch what they want, when, where, and how they want. This challenges you as a marketer to find those opportunities and integrate your product where it matters most.

Ad Avoidance

Audiences aren’t looking in magazines or sitting through TV ads. Instead, they’re discovering new brands and cocktail trends via online influencers and being exposed to alcohol products in movies, music, and on TV. They’re skipping ads the second they get the option and are being exposed to products, including alcohol products, through their favorite music, movie, TV, and social content. At BENlabs, we’ll craft recommendations across the entertainment landscape so you’re there, in all the right places.

Decentralized Content

Movies, music, TV, and social media split audiences. The average household has 5.2 streaming services. There isn’t any one source that all people go to for entertainment or informative content. Alcohol brands need to show up meaningfully, in multiple places, to really make an impact with their audiences.

Data Intelligence and Reporting

Showing up in social feeds, with music artists, in movie theaters or on the hot streaming show is great, but alcohol brands need to know exactly how these content engagements drive brand activations back to their business and how they move the needle on growth KPIs. They need a partner who can make sense of structured and unstructured data to derive clear, actionable business insights.

Alcohol Brands Are Fighting for Attention

Most alcohol brands are complying with regulations designed to limit their web exposure. For brands, that equates to an overall saturation at 0.82% of online ads.

You’re trying to reach people who spend 6.7 years of their life on social media and who watch 5.7 hours of video a day on average. They’re accessing billions of hours of video content spread across thousands of streaming services and social platforms. 93% of us listen to music regularly, and the 27-42 year-olds (millennials) listen 75.1% more than older generations.

In contrast to the low opportunities to reach prospects through online ads, these are exciting statistics for any alcohol brand that has learned to adapt, develop deep audience intelligence, and is able to meet prospects where they live online. 

For brands, it’s critical to get noticed. It’s more than just showing up; your wine, spirits, or malt brand needs to STAND OUT—To make a real connection with audiences, wherever they are. At BENlabs, we can help you reach global audiences where they are, how they want to be reached, and with an authentic, brand-safe approach.
