Message Optimization for Ocean Spray

 

 

Challenge

Ocean Spray came to us in October 2020 for support in launching its newest brand, Atoka. As the first brand to emerge from its Lighthouse Incubator and Ocean Spray’s first foray into the D2C market, Ocean Spray needed to know which brand and marketing elements best resonated with Atoka’s target audience of functional tea drinkers.
