Case Study 1: Coca Cola

Despite being the world’s largest beverage company and having spent millions on advertising, Coca Cola failed to understand why they lacked the connect when it came to Australia.

Summer of 2013 brought in a wave of change when they harnessed the power of social media and launched a brand new campaign called “Share a Coke”.

Coke replaced their celebrity-heavy ads with 150 most common custom-printed Australian names on the Coke bottles. This sparked a sharing frenzy across Australia’s online generation and became one of their most successful campaigns which was later launched in many other countries.

Result: 7% increase in sales; 870% increase in traffic on their Facebook page.

 

Case Study 2: Tanishq

With 160 stores in 80 cities, Tanishq is the most established jewelry brand best known for their pure gold quality.

Next on the plan was to conquer the online generation and get customers into their chain of stores through Facebook which will help them sharp target their audience.

Tanishq launched innovative carousel ads that displayed some of their most stunning pieces on Facebook. These ads had a “Shop Now” call-to-action button that directed customers to their website and gave them a discount coupon redeemable in stores.

Result: 3 times higher return on ad investments; 30% increase in in-store sales among 25-44 year olds.
