30 Reasons to Re-Purchase a Wine

LTAre any of the numbered 30 below, NOT a good reasons to re-purchase a particular bottle of wine?

I think it can be said with some assurance that they are all good reasons to re-purchase a bottle of wine and none can be discounted. It’s an indication of the idiosyncratic nature of our motivations, not to mention our uniqueness as individuals.

What’s true is that this list could easily grow to 100 reasons or 200 or 500 or more.

For wine marketers, or marketers of any sort, what we have here is an example of what might be called the Long Tail of Consumer Motivation. It carries a simple message. You don’t necessarily have to define down desire or motivation to recapture the sale. When re-messaging your customers, it might to you well to slide down the tail to find out what weird things might motivate another purchase.

    Whatever one might have accomplished in serving and drinking a particular wine on one occasion might be very worthwhile improving upon by buying another bottle, and figuring out how to out do the previous performance. We all have our own definitions of success that may apply here.

    The good thing about wines is besides tasting it, preferences, social. So many wines tastings told me that we are always learning about it, from wood of the barrels to fermentation and even the harvest process is a way to influence every wine. All the best.

    We would rebuy for reasons: 1, 12, 13, & 21. We drink most of our wine a home with just the two of us.

    31. The funny animal on the label was So Darn Cute
    32. It reminded me of that King guy from Burger King. He is so funny.
    33. The marketing message was So Darn Cute and I Love It. I always capitalize “Love It”.
    34. “So Darn Cute” was capitalized on the label, just like I write it! I dot my “i”‘s with a heart, but there’s no “i”‘s in “So Darn Cute”.
    35. I don’t know if I’ll re-purchase your wine. Somebody might think of something more cute. Sorry, I mean More Cute!
    36. Referring to #23, I DO love puzzles! They are SO HARD!!

    it seems that with all the ‘reasons’ to purchase another bottle, marketing toward a specific customer or obtaining a specific rating, etc. all the common practices wineries follow, are not necessary. customers will purchase what they will. however, these practices may be important for capturing the FIRST purchase.
