Measuring Mobile ROI: How Do I Know It’s Working?

Real-world case studies uncover what mobile effectiveness looks like by marrying specific client objectives with the metrics used to evaluate success. See how big brands are making real decisions about mobile.

Case Study 1:

If the goal is to drive in-store visits, then brand lift in intent to visit is the metric that matters.

Scoring on Two Screens to Drive In-Store Visits: Buffalo Wild Wings
Football season is an important time of year for Buffalo Wild Wings. To drive in-store visits throughout the season, they teamed up space150 to create an interactive campaign entitled, “Protect the Football,” a retro-inspired online and mobile platform game. The goal is to avoid a series of game-day distractions in order to get to the nearest Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant. By using brand lift metrics to evaluate success, Buffalo Wild Wings and space150 were able to understand how effective the game was in impacting intent to visit.

Craig Key, Associate Media Director, space150
Ryan Richardson, Manager, Digital Media, Buffalo Wild Wings
Jeff Smith, Senior Vice President, Product Leadership for Advertising Effectiveness, Nielsen


Case Study 2:

If your objective is to influence “in market” consumers then share of voice is the metric that matters.

Caesars Entertainment challenged their digital AOR Neo@Ogilvy to deliver an impactful campaign to drive their business in the Las Vegas market. The challenge was to do so with only $5,000 media spend. Neo chose the 4th of July weekend to capture all mobile share of voice in paid search channels. The success of that campaign with a flight of only five days has turned into a radical shift in mobile investment for Caesars entertainment. Today Neo runs an evergreen campaign in multiple markets for Caesars with the goal of influencing the decision making process for consumers “in market.”
