Fostering long-term relationships is the ultimate goal for any accomplished marketer. While many strategies focus on immediate gains, extra purchases, views, subscribers, and awareness, the true magic lies in sustained success. Enter direct-to-consumer (D2C) sampling, a game-changer that transforms every marketing campaign and each distributed sample into a strategic step toward long-term customer loyalty.

How does targeted sampling work?

Targeted sampling is a direct approach to product sampling campaigns. We take a precise approach to sample requests and a more personal approach to the subsequent sampling experience. Consumers request samples through your advertising campaign, we filter for the audience you want to target and we deliver your samples direct to their door.

With this approach, you get access to more consumer insight, marketing opt-ins, and more campaign touch-points than any other form of sampling. This means that long term relationships are more attainable within your campaign, and easier to attain through the impact of your campaign on future customers.

your products in their hands from the outset

How do we make these long term relationships happen?

Pre-qualified consumers

Targeted sampling with Sampl isn’t a shot in the dark; it’s a calculated move toward lasting connections, we filter for the audiences most likely to show interest in your products through qualifying questions and SamplMatch.

This lays the groundwork for enduring impact, ensuring your samples are trialled by a core audience that has already shown pre-qualified interest in your market. 

Building Advocacy from Day One

Each sample we send isn’t just a product to be used; it’s an introduction to your product’s benefits. Because of Sampl’s ability to prequalify, we can ensure we’re bringing in new customers through your D2C sampling campaign.

So, you’re not only gaining immediate conversions but also cultivating authentic brand advocates. These advocates become the cornerstone of word-of-mouth marketing, enhancing your long-term credibility.

Conversions That Echo Beyond Campaigns

The benefits extend beyond the campaign period. High opt-in rates during sampling campaigns open the door to targeted re-marketing and sustained engagement. Immediate conversions are just the beginning; post-campaign interactions keep the momentum alive.

Educate, Repeat, Cross-Sell

Targeted sampling isn’t just about putting your product in a customer’s hand; it’s about educating them.

This sets the stage for repeat business, where purchase intent rises, and cross-selling opportunities become possible through in-store interactions and online. Each sample becomes a stepping stone toward a broader customer relationship.

Memorable One-to-One Experiences

The power of direct-to-consumer sampling lies in creating memorable one-to-one experiences within the comfort of their homes.

Our sample fulfilment services provide a multi-touch journey that resonates long after the initial interaction. Consumer journeys can include emails, coupons, surveys, leaflets, and touchpoints through media touchpoints.



In the realm of customer acquisition, targeted sampling emerges as a strategic powerhouse. It’s not about quick wins; it’s about cultivating relationships that stand the test of time. With Sampl, transform your sampling campaigns into a roadmap for long-term success.
