Jimmi’s Bar & Grill- Pre Campaign Strategy
Client Profile: Jimmi’s Bar & Grill, located in Fullerton, California, is a family-owned bar serving the
community of Fullerton, which mainly include blue collar workers and older gentlemen. Owner, Mr. Jimmie
Bak, has been running this business since 1999. The overall yearly sales of Jimmi’s Bar & Grill are around
$150,000. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill offers a wide variety of alcoholic beverages for their patrons, ranging in
different types of beer, wine and liquor products. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill currently has five part time employees
who bartend Monday through Sunday from the hours of 11:30am to 2am. Jimmie Bak and his family run all
the day-to-day operations of the company. The manager of the company, Mr. Bak’s wife, Elsa, is the key
online marketing personnel.
Jimmi’s Bar & Grill was originally established as B & B Tavern in 1981 but it was renamed to its
current name in 1997, allowing Jimmi’s Bar & Grill to be in the alcoholic beverage industry for over 30
years. Their website [www.jimmisbarandgrill.com] was created two months ago and it is currently managed
by webs.com. The website is updated weekly by Elsa Bak. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill does not offer online sales
on a daily basis, but when popular musicians perform and they offer pre-sale tickets for admission. Jimmi’s
Bar & Grill is open 360 days a year and only closed for major holidays.
Market Analysis: Jimmi’s Bar & Grill, located at 500 S. Raymond Ave, is a neighborhood cheers type bar
with many regular customers who come in after a long day at work. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill’s biggest
competitor, Banana’s Sports Bar, is located right across the street. A group of local investors recently
purchased this tavern and Mr. Bak is hoping that their current customers will consume alcohol at his
business. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill also has significant competition from Downtown Fullerton, which is located
just a few streets away. Downtown Fullerton has a high market for college students attending the local
colleges nearby. Mr. Bak would like to market to college students since Jimmi’s Bar & Grill is less than two
miles from the Cal State Fullerton and Fullerton Community College campuses.
The alcoholic beverage industry has been around for many years after the prohibition. It is a popular
industry and there is a big target toward people over the age of 21. The alcoholic beverage industry can be
very prosperous as it can target many different segments. The 21 and over age group is a great segment as
they like to have fun and a good time. There is also a segment for the working and non-family individuals. It
can be prosperous as everyone has birthdays, holidays, events and celebrations. These are key aspects in the
alcoholic industry. There are many different brands and beverages to target individuals. The industry
continues to grow and should be prosperous for years to come. According to several websites, the alcoholic
beverage industry seems to be resilient to recession and economic problems. The industry consists of beer,
liquor and wine. Many of the big alcoholic companies have merged together during the recession and appear
to be staying strong. In 2010, Anheuser Busch, Miller, and Heineken were the top 3 beer brands. Together
they hold 40% of the beer market. These top brands each feature over 200 products and show dominance in
the beer industry. Alcoholic beverage items are sold in bars, restaurants and stores.
Unique selling points Jimmi’s Bar & Grill can offer, is drawing attention to booking parties to bring
in large crowds. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill also has low prices which can be emphasized with different specials of
alcoholic beverages. Highlighting different sports, entertainment or musical events at the location would
also be a benefit. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill does not currently offer seasonal products but offering special beers
during the summer would be an advantage for increased sales revenue. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill’s market
position is towards the blue collar worker. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill mostly targets to people in the Fullerton area.
Current marketing: Jimmi’s Bar & Grill’s website is primarily used to promote the bar when searched
online and give customers information on upcoming events as well as alcoholic beverages offered. The
website is also used for musicians and bartenders looking for employment. The strengths of the website are
the ease of navigation through the pages, appealing visual graphics and being able to see their menu with
prices attached. A weakness of Jimmi’s Bar & Grill’s website is it could be more appealing with different
types of graphics of customers at the business as well as pictures of the building where the business is
located. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill’s website has a low visibility on Google. When searching through google.com,
we could not find their website on the top 10 page rank. We believe it’s because the website is new.
However, when you enter “Jimmi’s Bar & Grill” all results on the first page are all credible advertising
websites for this business. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill does not currently use Google Analytics but Mr. Bak is open
to testing out this marketing tool.
A large amount of Jimmi’s Bar & Grill’s marketing is on social media. Jimmi’s Bar and Grill uses
Facebook as their main social media platform. Elsa Bak updates the Facebook account daily with
information about daily specials and the current bartender working. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill also uses a
combination of Twitter, Google+ and Instagram for their social media. They have over 700 friends on
Facebook and 900 followers on Twitter. The Instagram and Google+ accounts are only a few week ago, but
are rising in followers as well. Mr. Bak feels social media is a very effective tool. Jimmi’s Bar & Grill also
uses flyers, posters, and a marquee sign on the property as part of their marketing strategy. The
flyers/posters are posted inside the bar to inform customers of events, specials, and schedules. The marquee
sign is in front of the complex, which is visible to passing vehicles and vehicles stopped for period at a train
passing. Mr. Bak has the ability to change the marquee sign to say different advertising specials.
Conclusion: In order to meet Jimmi’s Bar and Grill’s objectives 1) Getting college students to the
establishment 2) Helping increase alcoholic beverage sales to over $180,000 3) Increasing brand identity, an
Adwords strategy will be developed to increase traffic flow and internet visibility to the website. This will
allow for a higher recognition and increased exposure level to Jimmi’s Bar and Grill to ultimately increase
their sales and obtain the college student demographic.
Proposed AdWords Strategy
The projected Google AdWords strategy is comprised of Jimmi’s Bar and Grill’s desire to increase
alcoholic beverage sales to over $150,000, improve branding recognition of the business and target a
younger demographic audience. As Table 1 illustrates, the AdWords strategy will contain 3 campaigns:
Entertainment, Brand, and Promotions. The goal of the Entertainment campaign is to attract a younger

and brand recognition. Additionally, the Promotions campaign is designed to increase sales with planning
events, drink specials and happy hour prices.

The AdWords key terms will consist of broad, “phrase”, and [exact] words. According to the Google
Keyword Tool, the cost-per-click (CPC) for the above keywords is approximately $ . The keywords are
manually used based on successful keywords and downward fluctuation of bid for given keywords with the
lower click-through-rate (CTR). Target location will be used on the Brand, Promotions and Entertainment
campaigns in order to reach Orange County and the neighboring areas. This will allow for a wider range of
people, organizations, and companies. The account will be monitored on the Google Search Network. We
will not use the Display Network because this would raise costs and lower the CTR. The objective of the ads
will be to maximize clicks, increase CTR, and obtain Jimmi’s Bar and Grill’s goals. Table 2 provides
example ads on the Search Network.

The majority of the campaign will be allocated towards brand campaign as we want to achieve the
goal of attracting customers and increasing sales. In addition, 30% of the campaign will go towards the
Promotions Campaign in order to meet the objective of increasing sales to $150,000 a year. The
Entertainment campaign is comprised of 20% of the campaign to target a younger demographic. Music,
sporting events, and pool tables attract a younger demographic as well as maintaining their existing
customers. Our budget plan is designed to start steady and gradually increase spending money. This will
allow us to better understand the aspects of the campaign and to improve our knowledge to achieve the
objective for Jimmi’s Bar and Grill. Table 3 shows the proposed weekly and daily budget for the campaign.
