SCHAFER CONDON CARTER is introducing Seven Daughters’ “Yes You Can” digital media campaign to support the alcohol brand’s first line of wine in a can.

Via Evite, the effort reaches women who are hosting and attending gatherings that align with the Seven Daughters brand voice.

With programmatic partner, Yieldbot, the campaign reaches women based on real-time intent signals. “We like that she is very close to a purchase occasion as a host or guest,” SCC says.

A pre-roll video shows the canned brand against a variety of backdrops and with accompanying copy: “You can bring it on a boat, in a tote, on a hike, on a bike, to a show or anywhere you want to go.”
