Insights from Jacobs Kronung

Domaine Rautenbach, Senior Brand Manager at Jacobs Coffee, shed light on Jacobs' decision to collaborate with Tokinomo.

Q: Why did Jacobs consider using Tokinomo?

Domaine Rautenbach: Jacobs considered using Tokinomo primarily to revolutionize our promotional campaigns and enhance shopper engagement in-store. Tokinomo offered us the opportunity to leverage retail innovation and technology that transform static promotions into an interactive experience for consumers. This also enabled us to captivate shoppers' attention like never before, which elevated our National Promotion & Easter campaign to new heights.

One of the main aspects that attracted us to the Tokinomo technology was its ability to break through the clutter in store. In a market saturated with promotional competitions, it's easy for shoppers to feel disengaged or unmotivated to participate. However, Tokinomo served as an attention-grabbing tool that stopped shoppers in their tracks and took a closer look at Jacobs in-store. 

Q: Is this a tool you would use again?

Domaine Rautenbach: This is absolutely an innovation we will consider for promotional campaigns going forward. The organic feedback on digital platforms, especially on LinkedIn, where consumers have actively shared their in-store experiences and engagement with both Jacobs and Tokinomo, reinforces the impact and effectiveness it had on our campaign.
