UCLA Mobile QR Code Marketing Campaign

809 views

Published on

In the fall of 2011, UCLA Marketing & Special Events embarked on an aggressive online and print campaign to help promote the awareness of UCLA mobile (http://m.ucla.edu) on campus, which was launched in Sept 2010. Prior to this marketing campaign, awareness relied mainly on word-of-mouth and self-discovery.

A 2011 annual tracking study done by UCLA Communications & Public Outreach had found that less than 4 out of 10 UCLA students and 1 out of 10 UCLA staff members had ever visited the UCLA mobile site. However, 96% of students and staff who visited the mobile site found it informative and useful.

The campaign consisted of a multi-channel approach, which included marketing through campus events, online and print using QR codes to measure direct engagement within offline mediums.

  2. 2. 2 Events In September 2011, two major events were targeted on campus to help create awareness for new students. Information booths were setup with a giant poster and wallet cards were passed out that contained QR codes encouraging students to explore UCLA mobile. Additional wallet cards were also distributed to various campus partners such as Transportation and the Library. Graduate Student Resource Fair The Graduate Student Resource Fair is part of Graduate Student Orientation for all new graduate students at UCLA. The event, held in Ackerman Grand Ballroom, attracts departments and resources centers from around campus and provides graduate students with information about campus resources and support services. Enormous Activities Fair The Enormous Activities Fair is held each year in Royce Quad and Wilson Plaza during zero week for students. The event attracts thousands of students who come to find out more about organizations they can get involved, with over 400 student organizations being represented. Students were very interested in trying out the mobile website and happy to learn about the useful features it provided such as the BruinBus schedule and Campus Map. Many were also pleased to find out that it worked on any device and no app was required.

  7. 7. 7 Highlights & Notes Top 3 Most Scanned Kiosks 1. Schoenberg Hall (BruinBus) 2. Engineering Building (Map) 3. Lot 32 (BruinBus) Top 3 Most Scanned Media 1. Wallet Cards 2. MyUCLA Website Spotlight Ad 3. Daily Bruin Print Ad Traffic for the mobile website grew from the previous year over the same time period with pageviews up 122% and the average time on page up 30%. Note that the bounce rate, when a visitor only views a single page on a website and leaves without visiting any other pages, is significantly higher. This is most likely due to the influx of people who saw the ads and were curious to see what the UCLA mobile website looked liked. Traffic • The highest amount of engagement for kiosk posters were with the BruinBus. These posters were strategically placed next to BruinBus stop locations and traffic areas in direct paths toward stop locations such as Schoenberg Hall. • Wallet cards had the most consistent amount of traffic, with analytics showing continuous traffic throughout the The mobile campaign proved to be a great success. Feedback has been extremely positive with increased awareness and engagement of the mobile website. The use of QR codes has also allowed Marketing & Special Events to track direct engagement and response rates via offline mediums, something that has traditionally not been available.
