A brand launch is always a big occasion. A brand launch is exciting, awesome, nerve-wracking, climactic. And that’s for companies with a history of success developing and launching CPG brands. Elemend Health had no such history. So we decided to make it.
What Elemend Health did have is significant expertise developing and marketing trace minerals for B2B pet and animal nutrition. So when they decided it was time to develop their own CPG supplement brand for the human nutrition space, they asked us to lead them through the from-scratch-creation and launch of a consumer supplement line. In other words, what we did for them (as we’ve done for other partners) is help a B2B company convert, grow, and adapt to the new world of D2C. Enter Mend + Defend.
Our Approach to Health + Wellness Market
The Health and Wellness market—and in our case the VMS gut health space—can feel a little bit like the microbiome itself: big, mysterious, exciting, confusing. We knew that it would be a challenge to knock down barriers to purchase and put consumers at ease. So we did our due diligence on the supplement consumer, culminating in a custom survey targeting those with a personal stake in gut health products.
The results of this survey informed everything from Amazon storefront design to packaging development to tagline creation to website architecture.
Clean, clear, consumable.
Mend + Defend the Process
Every bit of upfront, back-end work is worth its weight in gold, and it should be. Key stakeholder meetings over selling strategy and back and forth with brand managers on positioning statements make all the difference in the world. However consumers evaluate the brand touchpoint, not the months of labor leading up to it. And that’s where our team worked its magic (or, more formally, “strategic creative”), creating labels and landing pages and copy and video communicating reasons to believe, paths to purchase, moments of emotional connection.
