A survey conducted by the platform Numerator indicated many industries are shifting their advertising messaging. As example, restaurants are pivoting to food delivery message. The food industry has been quick to pivot their messaging to focus on in-home delivery options.
Adzze has been investing heavily in extending the capabilities to offer advertising options that goes along this new trend. One of these concepts is to advertise on pizza boxes and door hangers.
How does it work?
The advertisement is printed on pizza boxes (or pizza toppers) and shipped to the pizzerias that the advertiser selected. The advertising pizza venues distribute to the consumers locally or they deliver at their homes. These venues are recognized pizza chains, so the advertiser has exposure to reputable brands. The pizza box ads get delivered in the hands of the consumers at their homes reaching on average 45 min of brand exposure. Sometimes the consumer leaves the pizza in the fridge generating additional exposure. On average, each Pizza Box Advertising venue delivers 2,000 pizza box ads per month with an estimate 1.8M impressions/month.
There are few reasons why marketers would choose Pizza Box Advertising instead of other traditional media vehicles:
High Brand Recall
Consumers are overwhelmed with digital ads that they see for a fraction of second and barely remember them. The attention span for digital ads is minimal to make them remember. The pizza box ads create a surprise effect making it more memorable. Studies show that this type of ads can evoke an 80% recall rate (8 out of 10 households individuals remember to see an ad on pizza boxes)
The budget used to place a 1 billboard on a high traffic highway for 1 month can be re-allocated to distribute 60,000 pizza boxes. This is sufficient to cover all households of a small town in the USA.
High Return on Advertising Spend
The average ROI is 2.5X. This means, for every 1 dollar the advertiser invested in a pizza advertising campaign, they received at least additional 2.5 dollars of sales.
The unconventional and unexpected nature of this type of advertising enables better perception and assimilation of the message
The ad is placed on the center of the box generating guaranteed impressions. Sometimes the consumer leaves the pizza in the fridge generating additional exposure and more impressions
On average, each pizza venue delivers 2,000 ads per month with an estimate 1.8M impressions/month. This is 4x more impressions than a freeway billboard for 3-5 times less costs
Additionally, you can use coupons to boost sales and track the ROI of the advertising spend.
