Building on a profitable business model
Since 2013, Nocking Point Wines created thousands of fans by combining two beloved things: great wine and meaningful causes. Working with celebrities, Nocking Point partners on everything from choosing the wine, to label design, to production and selling directly on their website. By collaborating with the likes of Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis, Gray Malin, and Nicole Scherzinger, Nocking Point Wines has donated more than $2M to social impact organizations.
After selling wine on their own wite and through local events, Nocking Point realized they could scale their impact by selling directly on celebrity partner sites.
After being featured as a product on another brand’s Canal-powered pop-up, Nocking Point begain thinking about other creative ways they could use the platform to scale reach, says Zac Albright, VP of Branded Content at Nocking Point.
A great cause meets creative promotion
For their latest collab, their team worked with Brian Tyler Cohen, a political commentator, to sell a bottle of rosé where all profits were donated to Field Team 6, an oganization driving voter registration in battleground states.
Albright and Cohen partnered to create a new shoppable landing page with a Canal-enabled buy button.
Cohen launched a Youtube video to his 1.7M followers, garnering 433K plays. In the video, he linked to the landing page making the product directly shoppable from Youtube, and promoted it on Twitter.
Move with speed to capture the moment
Over the course of a week, Cohen sold almost 3,000 bottles of Nocking Point wine, generating $120K in sales for voter registration. “Selling this collaboration on Canal outdid my expectations by 10x,” says Albright.
“Working with the Canal team was instrumental; more than just this launch, they helped me understand the power of our store’s backend in a new way,” he shares. “Now we’re thinking, ‘How can we get Nocking Point on every celebrity’s website?’”
