Excellence in Marketing Implementation - Precise & Sophisticated FMCG Strategy
Fast moving consumer goods marketing management
The Critical issue in FMCG (or CPG) marketing:
"Only 1.5% of shoppers determine the success of new Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG/FMCG) product launches" [Ref: Wall Street Journal, 21 May, 2012]. This 41M consumer study of the top 25 most successful USA CPG (FMCG) launches, confirms the academic models researched and proven globally by leading business schools.
To identify, reach and convert these FMCG shoppers you need "Launch Engineering". Our consultants know FMCG, they know how to identify, reach and convert key FMCG shoppers, how to launch your FMCG product successfully, and how accelerate adoption and maximise lifecycle.
FMCG Voice of Experience: Words of wisdom from survivors of FMCG marketing:
"When your buyer says your brand is to be de-listed, all you can hear is the blood pulsing through your heart, and the taste of bile on your mouth…"
"We needed Launch Engineering three years ago when we started… Now, we need to start again."
"This business is wrought with land mines, not potholes… Anyone who thinks they can nail it without decades of experience, AND a great team, is destined for failure."
"The world of fast moving consumer goods is possibly the hardest, cruellest and disciplined industries all them all: The sheer science, and extraordinary thought, the investment in consumer and competitor analysis for truly focused market orientation, the value validity and constancy of marketing knowledge determines market share, profitability and survival."
At Launch Engineering we hear these comments almost weekly. If you want the easiest path, to avoid the "potholes and land mines", then you need Launch Engineering help.
How to market FMCG better than your competitors
Launch Engineering helps FMCG businesses be more productive, improve branding, expand marketing communications, control ad agencies and refine category management.
FMCG outcomes include an easier, faster path to trial and brand adoption. Special proprietary (pre-launch) new product pre-launch assessment tool almost eliminates the chance of a product launch not going to plan; advanced market segmentation methods give you a competitive 'edge'. Improved returns from advertising, trade spend (sometimes called promotional budget), sales promotions & public relations (pr & publicity) pays for FMCG consultancy fees many times over!
After 35 years we know the right design and creative agencies to get it 'right' - at the 'right price', but also how to work with them for the best possible outcome.
In the buyer adoption process of FMCG, 'trial' is everything... and the best way to achieve trial is by product sampling. Go to our product sampling page for more information.

Launching New FMCG Products?
Recent research In FMCG has identified that 50% of company profits are generated by products launched in the past three years, that life cycles are decreasing in duration and brand loyalty decreasing in strength.
This may be due to less than ideal FMCG brand management, but also a function of our changing environment. Either way, growing pressure means even more importance in the use of and management of advanced FMCG marketing methods.
New products are the lifeblood of your business… don’t take risks – use trained, knowledgeable new product launch marketing consultants to be sure of success.
Experience does not err; only your judgments err by expecting from her what is not in her power.
