  14. 14. Command Centers in Action: Case Studies
  15. 15. THE BACKGROUND Gatorade is probably best known for splashy commercials featuring some of the world’s most famous athletes. However, a new effort behind the scenes of the PepsiCo-owned sports drink maker is putting social media quite literally at the center of the way Gatorade approaches marketing.
  16. 16. THE GOAL Take the largest sports brand in the world and turn it into largest participatory brand in the world. THE SOLUTION Redefine the Target • Original target focused on reaching more mass audiences A18-34 with a heavy focus towards the male demo • Heavily reliant on TV to broadly cover audiences • Focused target, concentrate marketing dollars behind • A18-24 Youth with sports & athletic drive • Teens (12+) with a focus on up & coming athletes • Changing the target made a dramatic shift in their advertising mix (combination of traditional & heavy use of social media)

  19. 19. THE BACKGROUND Though still considered be a young enterprise, the brand is valued at more than $6 billion, operates in 48 countries and is considered one of the fastest growing companies in history. This all couldn’t have happened overnight, right? But it kind of did. “With the acquisition of an international component a couple years ago, we went from being a North American startup to a global brand — in what could be seen as just a couple of hours,” said Paul Matson, Groupon’s head of content and social media.
  20. 20. THE PROBLEM 1. Groupon became a juggernaut practically overnight 2. As the company grew, so did their social media needs – the complexity of the organization compounded 3. The time required to make social effective was more than what the sales reps could allocate 4. The company soon found it hard to manage all these conversations effectively - there were close to 400 Twitter handles associated with Groupon at one point 5. The system was fragmented – a mess!
  21. 21. THE SOLUTION 1. They re-evaluated and redefined their goals. 2. They hired a team of individuals solely dedicated to social. 3. They adopted “One Playbook,” to which all charged with the task of communicating on behalf of Groupon would adhere, and 4. Technology! THE RESULT
  22. 22. THE TECHNOLOGY Publishing Engagement Social CRM Upload, draft, review, geo- target, schedule and tag content across all channels Have a unified view of your customers across traditional and social channels, on a global scale Take part in thousands of conversations on a daily basis.
