Promotional campaign in over 7,800 retail locations will drive sales
AUSTIN, Texas (March 11, 2015). Shoutz, Inc. and 7-Eleven, Inc., today announced the launch of a joint, national campaign offering buy-one-get-one-free coupons for Arriba Horchata energy drinks, redeemable in more than 7,800 7-Eleven stores nationwide.
Approximately 62% of the 120 million Americans who play the lottery each month purchase their tickets from convenience stores, on average spending 65% more per visit than non-lottery customers.
Together, Shoutz and 7-Eleven reach a significant segment of lottery players. 7-Eleven stores make up the largest network of lottery retailers in the nation and Shoutz provides marketing services for the Multi-state Lottery Association through their LotteryHUB mobile app, an official app of Powerball and Mega Millions.
The partners’ promotional campaign will offer buy-one-get-one-free coupons for Arriba energy drinks, a product that 7-Eleven helped launch through an exclusive sales agreement with Arriba creator L.A. Libations, in 2014.
Coupons will be available in a dedicated “7-Eleven Offers” section of LotteryHUB through May 5. Shoutz will use mobile engagement and other marketing strategies to inform current LotteryHUB users of the promotion and to drive traffic to 7-Eleven locations
Using point-of-sale and other in-store marketing materials, 7-Eleven will encourage customers to download the LotteryHUB app and redeem Arriba coupons.
“Having delivered more than 40 million messages and hosted more than 5 million video views, LotteryHUB is the “go-to” app for lottery players and we are excited to partner with the largest convenience store operator in the world to add even more value to their stop at 7-Eleven,” said Shoutz Chief Operating Officer, Frank Rash.
