Word press site


Business Objective

  • To increase Rekoderlig’s current market share from 3% to 5% in the UK Cider market (Mintel 2016)
  • To increase awareness and recall of the brand Rekorderlig within the millennial target market from 47% to 60% (Mintel 2016a) 
  • Increase traffic to Rekoderlig website

Audience Research

 The target audience for Rekorderlig and this blog is millennials (18-24’s). Both men and women who want to ‘break to mould, set trends’ and love entertaining their friends and bringing something new to their friendship group. They enjoy the theatre of making cocktails and enjoy sweeter fruitier drinks (YouGov 2016; Schawbel 2016; Olenski 2016).

The millennial generation relies on modern media, with research showing that 33% of millennials seek out blogs and reviews before making a purchase. The use of ‘pull marketing’ is more effective, as millennials want to build relationships with brands, and feel special, not part of a mass audience (Carlos 2016). This transpires as 43% of millennials valuing the authenticity of user generated content rather than content, as they connect the best with people rather than logos (Schawbel 2016).
