And finally the introduction of Sampoll’s AI-powered Conversational assistant and experience liaison “Sam.” Sampoll’s new technology allows customers to experience new brands, sample products, and get proactively rewarded for discovering and sampling.
The ongoing pandemic enabled the Sampoll team to double down on an already aggressive product roadmap along with a new brand message and tone for their audiences that seeks to unify and better convey the value of Sampoll’s unique 1-2 punch. This comprehensive package provides brands and agencies with the ability to understand attribution and ROI more holistically by combining offline and now online product awareness, engagement, and trial. Market trends point to continued growth in the ecommerce retail space, with a renewed focus on intimate, local, physical experiences. This juxtaposition is at the forefront of Sampoll’s multi-channel strategy and presents an enormous opportunity for brands that are able to effectively engage consumers with authentic experiences wherever they feel most comfortable. Sampoll’s Conversational Assistant “Sam” is in its MVP (closed beta) form currently, with plans to open it up to more brands and roll out additional highly requested features throughout 2021.
