Burger King’s coverage of the NCAA games this past weekend was consumer interactive, participatory, mobile and social. Simply put, it was a hit. Foodservice Solutions® Grocerant Guru calls it the best vertically integrated marketing campaign ever within the restaurant sector. Here is one quote from the Burger King press release that provides a perfect example.
“March Madness is an all-American tradition, just like a BURGER KING® WHOPPER® Sandwich and Fries. What fuels the players on the court is the passion of the fans and BURGER KING® gets that,” said basketball legend Chris Webber. “Being part of the BURGER KING® Watch Like a King campaign and having the opportunity to reward fans for their fandom is an amazing experience. This year when I’m watching the games, I’ll be eating my favorite Original Chicken Sandwich like a king.”
Success does leave clues and Burger Kings vertically integrated marketing campaign during the 2014 NCAA basketball tournament is one of the clues for 2014. This coming weekend tune in, follow, and turn on the tournament and see for yourself. Restaurant customer migration continues, campaigns the ilk of Burger Kings will ebb the migration.
