30 brands with excellent social media strategies

Okay, it's probably disingenuous to pretend that social media is still something nascent and unproven for brands.

Even with a tricky attribution problem to solve, most brand marketers and advertisers agree it just makes sense to target these large, active and known audiences.

Having said that, some brands 'got' social media a lot quicker than others.

Four ways brands are marketing through dating services

Online dating services might not seem like ideal platforms for marketing.

After all, many are monetized primarily through paid subscriptions, and users, for obvious reasons, are probably more focused on finding a date than clicking on ads. 

But in recent years, brands have found ways to insert themselves into the online dating experience. Here are four examples.

Pizza Hut takes aim at Domino's with new mobile site

Pizza Hut launched a mobile optimised version of its UK website this week, making it easier for customers to place an order for delivery or collection on their smartphone.

It’s a useful upgrade to the site but the brand is still miles behind competitor Domino’s Pizza, which currently achieves 13% of all digital sales through mobile devices.

While rival Domino’s has generated over £10m in sales in the past year with its iPhone app alone, it has taken a long time for Pizza Hut to go mobile in the UK.

In the US, the brand was well ahead of the curve with mobile, yet in this country Pizza Hut has had no mobile offering at all. 

I tested the mobile site on an Android smartphone to see if it was worth the wait...

Domino's deal with web app startup targets football fans

Domino’s pizza has taken the unusual step of partnering with a web app start-up in a bid to drive brand affinity with football fans.

Squawka, which launched on June 8, is an interactive web app that gives real time stats and analysis during football matches, as well as acting as a forum for fans to discuss the games.

The deal is part of Domino’s affiliate marketing activity, but as it is being run with a start-up the emphasis is on driving brand awareness rather than increasing sales.

Domino’s marketing activity already has a strong focus on digital. It launched its iPhone app in 2010 followed by an iPad app late last year.

Domino's achieves £1m in mobile sales in one week

Domino’s has announced that it took over £1m in sales through its mobile platform in a single week in Q1 2012.

In total e-commerce sales accounted for 50.6% of UK sales in the 13 week period up to March 25 2012, up 44.5% year-on-year to £59.3m.

Mobile payments made up 16.4% of total online sales, a slight increase on reports last month that the pizza company took 13% of digital sales through a tablet or smartphone.

Domino’s investment in its mobile platform certainly appears to be paying off – in September we reported that it had generated £10m of sales through its iPhone app in eight months and gave its new iPad app a glowing review.

Learn from FedEx and turn a social media 'fail' into a huge win

If you’re reading this, you’re most likely a marketer - and you’ve probably seen FedEx’s addition to the ‘super fail’ hall of fame from late last year.

If not, click through to watch the video clip uploaded to YouTube in December by an unhappy customer.

In it, a FedEx ‘guy’ is clearly seen throwing a new computer monitor over the gate of the man who ordered it. He returned home, wondered why it was broken and uploaded a security video of the incident. Then all hell broke loose.

Domino's increases sales: With better tasting pizza or better delivery?

Domino's may be focusing on better tasting pizza in the states, but in the U.K the chain increased sales last year the way it always has: by making it easy to get pizza.

Acknowledging a weakness in their "core product" of pizza, Domino's has spent the last few months revamping its recipes and relaunching its pizza brand stateside. But it looks like a cold front in the U.K., some key brand partnerships and revamped digital efforst are to thank for the company's sales boost across the pond in 2009.
