How Dangers of Marketing Metrics Dependency

When it comes to marketing, the same can be said for your attitude toward analytics. As a CMO, cultivating a data-driven marketing team can drive more insightful marketing decision-making and thus, better results. But an over-emphasis on metrics can actually lead to the opposite.

But wait … is this even a problem for CMOs and their marketing teams? If you look at all the data out there, it seems like the biggest problem that exists with the current state of marketing analytics stems from a lack of marketing analytics implementation, not an over-dependency.

Case Study on Papa John's Pizza

Everybody loves pizza. The key is to get them to talk about it. And, more importantly, to get them to talk about MGH’s client Papa John’s Pizza. To help accomplish this goal, our social media marketing team developed “Pass the Pie,” a social media-based sweepstakes designed to drive consumer conversation online and develop a stronger social media presence for Papa John’s in several key markets.

Dairy Queen Uses Social Incentives To Sell A Million Blizzards

Using targeted consumer incentives, American Dairy Queen Corp. (ADQ), which franchises the Dairy Queen quick-serve restaurant chain, was able to massively grow its customer fan club and encourage customer loyalty over the long term. The company had found success over the years in building its Blizzard Fan Club, in which program members receive emailed special offers, discounts, and news.
But while the club had grown to 2.8 million members, the company’s marketing team saw an opportunity for greater growth, not only in membership but in the level of engagement from those who were already part of the program.
Working with the email service Silverpop Engage and the digital marketing agency space150, ADQ developed a campaign designed to increase the number of coupons printed via email by fan club members by 300,000, as well as grow the number of fans by 300,000 overall.
“We sat down with our art directors, designers, and copywriters to determine how we can make that technology work,” says Kristin Olson, media planner for space150.
Sent out were emails offering those who signed up for the Blizzard Fan Club the option to post a buy-one-get-one-free coupon on their Facebook pages using Silverpop’s Share-to-Social feature. The coupons were offered for the month of July—a first for the company, which usually saves such offers for the cooler months, when business is slower.
To ensure the coupons went viral, ADQ offered free ice cream for a year to the individual who got the most friends to sign up and made a promotion for five other participants chosen at random.
