Countdown Screen Network

New Zealand’s most impactful digital screen network for building brands  and driving awareness with grocery buyers as they are prominently placed at the entry to Countdown stores.

These impressive high definition 65” digital screens provide rich, dynamic  content ensuring delivery of engaging  brand and promotional  messages to customers as they commence their shop.

Why be located in close proximity when you can be right at the moment that matters most. When customers cross the threshold into store,  they switch to shopping mode. Maximise awareness and consideration of your brand at the most influential  point on the path to purchase.

Customer Communication Pillars

Connect with the large scale audience of main grocery buyers to drive significant levels of awareness, reach and frequency. The message you communicate to customers is just as important as the touchpoints you use. Our customer communication pillars are used across all media channels.

They provide customers with relevant and recognisable messaging throughout their shopping experience and enable suppliers to deliver clear and consistent messaging across multi-channel campaigns.

Introduce and highlight NPD

The launch is a key stage in the product lifecycle. It is important to make customers aware of the product, provide them reasons to purchase and stand out from the competition. The Countdown pink is a key differentiator, with shoppers associating it with new products.

Try me roundel

Inform, inspire and educate

The ‘Try Me’ pillar is used to inspire and educate customers at key activation moments. It is an opportunity to remind customers of product benefits, unique selling points and provide new ideas and suggestions on product use.
