    • 17. There was a 33% rise in check-in traffic around the world
    • 18. Over 50 articles were written regarding this campaign
    Evaluation of Campaign
  • 19.
    • CONS:
    • 20. It could not be confirmed whether or not every individual who checked-in actually made a purchase
    • 21. There were only those 100 gifts cards that were offered so clearly not everyone was guaranteed to receive one
    • 22. Not as many social media users are familiar with Foursquare as compared to Twitter or Facebook
    • 23. 500 million people have a FB
    • 24. Twitter has 106 million users
    Evaluation of Campaign
  • 25.
    • Overall this campaign between McDonald’s and Foursquare was successful for what they wanted to achieve
    • 26. It increased traffic to both McDonald’s stores and to the Foursquare site on 4/16 (Foursquare Day)
    • 27. However, only on this day, and the 2 days following, did the check-ins on Foursquare and McDonald’s visitations peak
    Evaluation of Campaign
  • 28.
    • Would have been more beneficial to include Facebook “places” along with Twitter and Foursquare
    • 29. Bigger and better incentives…and more of them!
