The Agency Help Slimming Brand Swell Sales Through Boots Retailers
Slimsticks, a natural weight loss aid has enjoyed a dramatic rise in sales since securing retail distribution with more than 700 UK Boots stores late last year. The growth has been in part due to recent press coverage and online advertising campaigns planned and created by advertising specialists The Agency.
Slimsticks, who have continued to retain Imogen Thomas as their brand ambassador since 2011, have enjoyed a period of consecutive growth throughout the UK and have rarely been absent from the national press or the Twittersphere. A completely natural product, Slimsticks works by reducing the body’s appetite aiding weight loss. Some people have been known to lose 6lb in just one week.
“The Agency have been instrumental in helping us to develop the Slimsticks strategy and start building the brand, both in press and online. We started steadily, growing our online search presence and we have continued to scale up now negotiating national press deals, most recently with Reveal, Look, OK Magazine and the Daily Mail,” says Franco Beer, Managing Director at Innovate Health.
The Agency, specialists in Planning, Creative, Technology and Media, have become well known for taking challenger brands to the number one spot.
“We look to help companies that have fantastic products and services and deliver on their brand promises. If the product works well, we can always help stimulate demand and take market share. Slimsticks is simply a great product that really works well. We know because we’ve tried it! Coupled with its physiology, it is in fact the only slimming product that can make weight loss related claims in its advertising, and these are approved by EFSA, the European Food Safety Authority” says Saman Mansourpour, Partner, The Agency.
Earlier this year The Agency completed the branding, packaging and website that helped launch Slim-Be, the weight management product that was introduced to an older demographic audience by media personality and author Christine Hamilton. It is sold exclusively on TV and Online by international shopping channel QVC.
Slimsticks is currently available online from Slimsticks.com and in all major Boots retailers nationwide.
