With the convenience and simplicity that online shopping offers, it’s no wonder it’s taken off so rapidly. The reality is, if you haven’t shifted your business onto digital marketplaces, you’re missing out on reaching access to a huge potential market.
Drinks Network is a new online marketplace for millions of shoppers across Australia offering an extensive range of wine and spirits to buyers who are hooked on the promise of ‘Good Times, Swipe, Buy, Delivered’.
Drinks Network launched in 2012 as a content creation agency for liquor companies. It has one of the most popular drinks focused YouTube channels in Australia with ‘how-to’ and ‘story’ content.
In 2020, Drinks Network Managing Director Hayden Wood (Author: The Liquid Kitchen, Good Wine, Bad Language Great Vineyards book series) realised the potential of utilising the educational content as a base to drive online liquor sales.
“On the eve of the 2020 COVID lockdown, we decided to flip Drinks Network and all its assets into one sexy online marketplace – utilising super powerful digital tech. We conducted extensive research and learned from the fashion industry, such as ‘The Iconic’, that the liquor industry has a long way to go to engage on a more personal level digitally – so we’re leading that charge helping shoppers learn more, buy smarter.” said Hayden.
“Our team believes strongly that there is a largely untapped market of shoppers wanting value-added, or good times as we call it, and engage through story-selling, rather than lowest price wins,” Hayden concluded.
In addition to their own audience, Drinks Network offers serviced marketplace solutions for multi-channel. This includes product listing management and sales fulfillment across platforms like Amazon, eBay, and Google Shopping. Collectively a brand can reach 3.5 million Aussie shoppers each week with all sales showing in one Drinks Network dashboard.
Drinks Network was awarded the Minimal Viable Product (MVP) Grant in 2021 from the New South Wales Treasury Department, which has allowed the business to invest in advanced technology to increase Drinks Network platform performance.
