FYS: menos azúcar y menos marketing

Desde 2019, FYS no existía para las personas en las góndolas. Frente al "marketing" gigante de Coca-Cola y Guaraná Antarctica, no era notada.  En un giro estratégico, FYS decidió abandonar las tácticas tradicionales de marketing de la categoría, reírse de sí y asumir su desventaja ante los gigantes. Contra todas las expectativas y con mucho menos presupuesto que la competencia, FYS conquistó la atención y un crecimiento desproporcionados comparados con su tamaño, demostrando que menos puede ser más.

Beam Suntory’s most successful launch ever

From summer ale to seltzer, “innovation” in the drinks industry usually just means jumping on the latest bandwagon. But not in the case of -196. This isn’t just the story of a new product, but a distinctive new brand that turned category convention on its head and turned Aussies onto an obscure shochu drink that was “big in Japan”, but unknown here. In one year, ‘Extreme Japanese Spirit’ helped -196 overtake ‘White Claw’, becoming the no.3 Light RTD with an ROI of $4.75: Beam Suntory Australia’s most successful launch ever.
