Insignia Electronics Case Study


Elevate perception of Best Buy private label brand

Within Best Buy’s robust portfolio of major electronics brands, Insignia suffered from an identity crisis. Sales people and consumers lacked affinity for the product line and saw it as a low-priced, non-aspirational alternative to the major brands. Seeing Insiginia’s potential to drive corporate sales and overall margins, Best Buy tapped Solve to create a position that would elevate the brand’s status.

Insignia products feature contemporary designs, the latest technology, consumer-inspired innovations and dependable performance.

  • New brand platform enthusiastically received by Best Buy sales force (“Blue Shirts”)
  • Position fueled significant Insignia SKU expansion
  • Insignia product sales outperformed ambitious expectations
