Drive both e-commerce and in-store sales with a targeted EBT audience

Fresh EBT helps grocery retailers drive online and in-store sales with low-income families by providing direct access to EBT shoppers. For example, grocers can partner with Fresh EBT to offer targeted discounts and launch co-branded sales campaigns in partnership with CPG brands.

Case Study: Building brand affinity with low-income shoppers via recipe media

Food brands have been searching for avenues to support low-income customers during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the spring and summer of 2020, several major brands engaged Fresh EBT to build a direct connection with low-income families impacted by the crisis.

Fresh EBT collaborated with brands to launch custom in-app campaigns that highlighted affordable sponsored recipes, cooking tips, geo-targeted coupons, and more to help families cook at home on a budget. Several brands also took the opportunity to survey Fresh EBT users on their cooking preferences to develop custom content tailored to a low-income audience.

The custom campaigns connected 128,000+ cash-strapped households with food brand media, generated 137,000+ views of sponsored recipes, and resulted in 2,700+ data points on food purchasing and consumption behaviors. The average brand campaign reached over 1 million families across the nation within a one-month period.

By running targeted marketing campaigns in Fresh EBT, food brands have been able to build affinity with millions of consumers, eliminating the lift of identifying low-income customers online and increasing the impact of their media investments.
