While Swiss Miss is a top hot cocoa brand, sales slump outside of the wintertime. How do we keep Swiss Miss top of mind the rest of the year?
Currently, Swiss Miss is seen as a childhood wintertime treat. That perception is holding the brand back from being seen as a beverage that adults can enjoy all year long.
People don’t just need a pick-me-up in the winter – they need them all year round. We’ll position Swiss Miss as the comforting remedy for your everyday struggles.
Swiss Miss would release themed boxes that can offer a pick-me-up throughout the year. We'd release new boxes throughout the year to keep Swiss Miss top of mind year-round, especially during stressful periods like playoff games and the election.
For Election Season
We also updated the cocoa packaging from an awkward envelope to a sleeker, more mature packet.
The marshmallows inside each packet spell out an encouraging message, which compliments the struggle printed on each packet.
We'll introduce Swiss Miss greeting cards to give to your friends who are having a rough time. Each card includes an uplifting fact and a packet of Swiss Miss as a pick-me-up.
Swiss Miss would bring some uplifting facts to social with our "Nice News Reports."
We'd continue the “Nice News Reports” on radio and Spotify.
We’d roll out a Swiss Miss branded Chrome extension that shares a new uplifting fact whenever you open a new tab. Take that, office blues.
Public figures have it rough. Swiss Miss would brighten their day by sending a custom “Hug in a Mug” mug to celebs who need it: think sports stars, politicians, or snubbed lovers on the Bachelor. The words on the mug changes when a hot beverage is added, revealing the true message.
