Walmart Connect understood the assignment when it came to getting their customers ready for back-to-school. As college-bound students prepared to hit the books, Walmart Connect helped advertisers elevate their products online and in-store and enhanced the shopper experience through education to their audience.
How knowledge and learning can elevate the customer journey
This September, Walmart Connect along with several leading health and wellness brands, (Hanes®, Midol®, Thinx®, U by Kotex®, Carefree®, and The Period Company®) launched #OwnYourFlow, an initiative aimed to break the stigma surrounding periods, and promote women's education. Walmart Connect and its partners are seizing a prime opportunity to reach out to young women during a time of change and transition. As students head back-to-school and parents prepare for the challenges of the new academic year, this initiative offers a much-needed source of support, education, and empowerment. When brands advocate for a cause, their audience tends to listen. Data shows that 38% of Walmart customers expect the brands they buy to support social causes.1 By taking an active role in promoting women's health, Walmart Connect and its partners are solidifying Walmart's reputation as the go-to destination for customers' personal needs.
How Walmart Connect brought #OwnYourFlow to life
The #OwnYourFlow campaign features several key components, all designed to create a comprehensive and informative platform for women's health. Through a dedicated offering resources for period health education, including articles, video, and a curated product assortment designed to make school, active lifestyles, and parenting easier, to on/offsite and search media supporting the campaign, #OwnYourFlow is helping to ensure that as many people as possible can access the valuable information and resources provided to choose the products that are right for high school students.
