Survey CPG Analysis

Secure more shelf space and higher ROI.

The goal.

A large CPG company needed to run research to design strategies geared toward securing high ROI shelf space investment/partnerships in retail stores to drive sales.

We aim to arm the company’s sales team with consumer sentiment data across categories and retailers in the dollar channel to secure more shelf space for products.

Our approach.

Using historical geolocation capabilities, MFour will target members of our first-party audience who have been observed passively through opt-in location sharing to have visited either Family Dollar or Dollar General in the past 6 months.

Panelists will then be screened as either a Dollar General regular shopper, or a Family Dollar regular shopper, then asked to complete a survey about a maximum of 2 out of 7 possible categories.

  • What impact is inflation having on consumer behavior specifically within the dollar channel’s key shopping segments?
  • Are consumers buying more/less often, larger or smaller quantities, switching retailers/brands, or have they shopped buying in general.
  • Which deals are preferred and how are consumers defining value?
  • Uncover drivers/barriers to purchase each category across each retailer (Dollar General and Family Dollar).
  • Understand consumers’ brand preference within each category across both retailers, along with purchase frequency.
  • Define and understand usage occasions across categories.

The results.

Behavior Finding: 

MFour behavioral data reveal those who are likely to purchase the CPG company’s product shopped at Dollar General 2x more than at Family Dollar.

  • Family Dollar: 24% Reach
  • Dollar General: 51% Reach
