visitors of MOS burgers

•We were not able to measure the responses of all social classes because of limited resources.

•The research is confined to study of youth preference of promotional mix in Singapore.

•There existed a language barrier while communicating and interviewing people in Singapore

as few of them were not able to understand English.

theory. Hypothesis is tentative answer to the question that serves as guide for most of
the research projects.

Mc Donald’s: I’M LOVIN IT CAMPAIGN

Overview

BY 2003 after nearly 50 years as the king of fast food McDonalds Corporation was
suffering an identity crisis. As the time magazine reported, “the challenges facing
McDonalds come supersized. Its home market is all but saturated its sterling reputation
for fast, friendly service and cleanliness is tarnished and customers are putting a
growing premium on freshness and taste, neither of which Mc Donald’s is renowned
for”. In addition, the company revenues were shrinking and its earning expectations for
2002. To reconnect with customers the company planned remodeling projects in more
than half of its U.S stores, It revamped its menu offerings to include healthier choices
and to build brand identity it launched a worldwide marketing campaign, “I’m Lovin It”
featuring singer Justin Timberlake. Developing the campaign was the joined effort by Mc
Donald’s and ad agency DDB Chicago and a German based agency Heye & Partner, a
division of DDB worldwide. The campaign featured five television commercials with
appearances by Timberlake that focused on the adult market. There were other spots
created to “maintain the emotional connection Mc Donald’s brand has with families and
Kids. In addition to the television spots the campaign included window posters, signs on
outdoor poles and special kiosks Advertising age estimated total budget to be $ 100
Million.

Historical Context

As Mc donalds celebrated it 50th

anniversary in 2005 the company also could celebrate
maintaining its lead in the fast food burger race. According to PR Newswire the
company had grown from one restaurant in des plaines Illinois to more than 30000
restaurants most independently owned and operated that served almost 47 million
people in more than 100 countries everyday. In a 2002 time magazine article Daniel
Eisenberg wrote,” McDonalds opens a new store somewhere around the globe every
eight hours” Sales has climbed from $ 366.12 on opening day at the first restaurant to
more than $19 billion in 2004.

In response to competition from other fast food chains such as number two Burger king
and a crowded restaurant market that offered consumers upscale fast casual dinning
options. McDonalds went on a mission to win customers to revitalize its business.
Eisenberg reported that the company planned to bulldoze as many as 1000 of its aging
restaurants and give face lifts to about 6000 others. “Remodeling more than half its
13099 US restaurants which could cost the company as much as $800million over the
next two years. Greenberg’s plans included rolling out a dollar value menu for price
conscious customers, adding healthier choices to the menu and developing new
restaurant formats.

Among other changes was the launch of I’m Lovin it Campaign designed to work in all
languages and to dispel to chains image as a fading icon portraying it as forever young.

Target Market

According to Carpenter the I’m Lovin it campaign was designed to attract younger and
hipper consumers. Its aimed at helping the restaurant chain connect better with
customers – especially young adults moms and kids. He reported McDonalds’ chief
marketing officer as saying ,”we know we need to be more modern and more relevant
in how we communicate with today’s consumers”. Charlie Bell the company chief
operating officer added that, besides appealing to young consumers, the campaign
would” be fun it’ll be relevant, it’ll be hip, it’ll be compelling and it will connect people of
all ages”.

Rance Crain writing in advertising age said that McDonalds “all-or-nothing bet on the
youth market” was a risk. Referring to an ad featuring a cameo by singer Timberlake,
Crain wrote, “I think I can say without fear of contradiction that the commercial is off
putting to most of the non-target market….If it doesn’t register with kids, the corporate
campaign could have a negative impact overall, and McDonalds will have spent $100
million for the privilege of alienating vast swatches of its customers.

Competition

As the Evansville Courier & Press reported, ”McDonalds and burger king have been
going burger-to-burger for more than 30 years, with Wendy’s and smaller companies
also fighting for consumers heart and appetite.” Faced with its own declining sales and
with competitor MacDonald’s increasing its sales, explained in part by its “I’m lovin it”
campaign, number two burger king launched the counter back in the burger wars with
the reintroduction of its popular “have it your way” slogan and with its “lunch break
Gang” television ads which featured group of 20-something coworkers ordering lunch
their way.

The burger king campaign did not have strong positive results with the consumers,
however with USA Today reporting that only 14% of those familiar with the ads liked
them and thought they were effective while 30% of the people polled said they did not
like the ad Nevertheless the burger king campaign won the silver award at the 2004
Cannes Lions and a Bronze Award at the Clios. More importantly the campaign had a
positive effect on Burger Kings sales with increases reported 10 consecutive months
following its launch in February 2004.

Marketing Strategy

As the PR Newswire observed the I’m Lovin it campaign was a key part Mc Donald’s
business strategy to connect with consumers in highly relevant culturally significant
ways around the world. Part of the strategy was to shoot the I’m Lovin it commercials in
various locations worldwide. Jim Krik reported in Chicago Tribune that filming was done
in Prague in Czech Republic. Rio de Janerio in Brazil Johannesberg in South Africa,
Singapore and other international locations. The high energy launch in the US is the
further proof that this global campaign is far more than just advertising or a new theme
line stated by vice president Larry light. It is multidimensional approach to customers
around the world that goes from television sets and computers to our restaurants
…..And everything in between.

Mike Roberts president of Mc Donald’s USA told PR Newswire that the “theme and
attitude of this full scale campaign is being integrated into every aspect of
business….from crew training and overall restaurant experience to national
sponsorships, promotions and all new local street market.” He added that the company
was “focused on bringing the I’m Lovin it theme of life not only in our advertising but
also for every customer who visits our restaurant. This world class marketing strategy is
the latest element of our overall plan to continue revitalizing Mc Donald’s.

Outcome

If success can be measured by awards recognition and increased sales Mc Donald’s I’m
Lovin it campaign hit the jackpot. In 2004 Advertising Age named the company
marketer of the year for its achievements. In response to the award Jim skinner
McDonalds new CEO said “I’m lovin it! We’re honored to be recognized with one of the
most covered awards in the advertising and marketing world.”

McDonalds light said that awareness of the I’m lovin it campaign reached 86% of
consumers in the top 10 countries tagged by the company. The Success of the
campaign was” another sign that we’re connecting with customers like never before,
“he said Noting the international success of the campaign the Scottish Daily Record &
Sunday in Glasgow reported that “ McDonalds advertising slogan I’m Lovin it has been
crowned king of the catchphrases. The fast food giants jingle is being repeated in 43%
of workplaces says a new survey.

The Cincinnati Past wrote in November 2003,”the biggest single month increase at its
US restaurants in more than five years lifted McDonalds Corp. to an impressive 8.4
percent gain in comparable sales last month…[the Company] attributed the increased
business in part to benefits of the first full month of its exhaustive new advertising
campaign, featuring the tagline “I’m lovin it”. In addition the newspaper noted the sales
in France Germany and Britain the company’s three biggest European markets also
showed increases over the previous year.
