Online growth fueled by offline media blitz

CHALLENGE

Jet needed boutique-style service and a high impact, multi market media strategy with great value, for its launch and sustain phases. They needed to break through the consumer retail static and drive online sales and customer acquisition with fresh, high visibility media.

  • Concurrent with the campaign, sales reached $33M+ during the peak of the out-of-home blitz and surpassed the 1 million customer mark after only weeks in market. By May 2016, Jet surpassed $1B in sales.  
  • In August of 2016, after almost a year of continual growth, Walmart acquired Jet for $3B.
