Case Study - Ecommerce Paid Advertising - Served Drinks

Served Drinks

About Client

Launched in 2020 by the dynamic trio of brothers Dean and Ryan Ginsberg alongside pop icon Ellie Goulding, SERVED has quickly risen to prominence as one of the UK's fastest-growing ready-to-drink (RTD) brands. Disenchanted by the existing RTD landscape, which was often dominated by overly sweet, high-calorie options lacking in quality, the founders embarked on a mission to revolutionise the industry. Their vision: to craft the most exceptional pre-mixed drinks on the market – ones that are not only bursting with flavour and refreshment but also mindful of health-conscious consumers, boasting fewer calories and zero added sugar.

The Challenge

SERVED faces the challenge of differentiating itself in the rapidly expanding ready-to-drink (RTD) market. While they have successfully established a brand known for its commitment to quality and healthier alternatives, they need to ensure that their unique value proposition resonates with potential customers. This includes effectively communicating their dedication to using premium natural ingredients, avoiding added sugar and artificial additives, and crafting genuinely flavourful drinks that cater to various tastes and preferences.
