Flexible, budget-friendly and effective platform now available for SMBs to seamlessly promote products to cannabis consumers in store, on-the-go or at home.
Los Angeles, CA. – Enlighten, the leading provider of technology solutions and marketing services to better understand, navigate and reach cannabis customers throughout the entire customer journey, announced the availability of AdSuite, a new self-service ad buying platform for SMBs.
AdSuite’s all-in-one cannabis-specific marketing platform makes it quick and easy to buy, manage, and measure advertising campaigns. Enlighten uses consumer and location data to seamlessly power campaigns across multiple advertising channels; providing clients with a transparent view into the effectiveness of each campaign so they can not only identify, attract and retain new customers, but also make educated decisions on where to spend their money, unlock new opportunities that increase profitability, and help them gain competitive advantages in the market.
“For businesses, the start of the new year has always been a time to evaluate how and where to spend marketing budgets to achieve optimal ROI; and with the challenges COVID presented last year, including budget cuts and changes in consumer purchasing behavior, cannabis companies had to adjust their marketing strategy to get their messages in front of the right audiences no matter where they were – in-store or online,” said Jeremy Jacobs, CEO at Enlighten. “This meant cutting traditional ad spending and re-allocating those funds to digital, which requires resources and creativity to get around the restrictive rules from digital platforms like Google and Facebook and individual state laws around marketing cannabis.”
“We know Enlighten well and we’re excited to be one of the first users of the AdSuite platform. Our team is always looking for more seamless ways to manage our ad spend.” said Nicole Kennebeck, Marketing Director of Willie’s Reserve. “The flexibility and simplicity of the AdSuite platform make using it a no-brainer for any company, small or large, at any stage of their business.”
Large cannabis companies, as well as non-cannabis companies looking to reach cannabis consumers, use Enlighten’s enterprise-grade technology, trusted data, transparency and custom marketing solutions to influence and navigate the entire customer journey; from creating brand awareness and driving foot traffic into the store, to guiding the in-store experience, influencing purchase habits and increasing basket sizes once they are in the door. With today’s announcement, Enlighten is supporting small and emerging brands in the cannabis space, oftentimes without in-house marketing teams, by offering a simple and effective self-service platform.
