"More importantly, we are pleased to offer them a unique opportunity to gain exposure for their product and their in-store promotional sweepstakes. BEVision is quickly becoming a valuable off-premise advertising medium to the adult beverage industry. This custom-made, in-store promotional spot is only one example of how BEVision can tailor ads for the marketing initiatives of retail brands, such as Major Peters'. Our medium gives them the opportunity to speak directly to their target audience while purchase decisions are being made."
