How Hard Rock Café added 10000 fans in a week on Facebook

Facebook marketing ad campaigns are a rocket science to many and killer ad campaigns don’t come every day. For an online ad campaign, Facebook is the most preferred platform for its features, audiences, and insights.

Over the past few years, there have been some great viral campaigns that have brought brands to the limelight. And, it’s not just about branding, there’s a lot of ROI generated from these campaigns.










Some great ad campaigns on Facebook:
• The Ice Bucket Challenge (ALS Association)
• Like A Girl (Procter & Gamble)
• #KissaLot (LOT Polish Airlines)
• Fevikwik Todo Nahi Jodo (Pidilite)
• Aviva Padding up with Sachin (Aviva Life Insurance)
• Mauka Mauka (Star Sports)

All these campaigns got awesome response. This is because of this new and radical approach they have taken. The ingredients of these campaigns are the 4Es instead of the 4Ps. Experience instead of Product, Everywhere instead of Place, Exchange instead of Price, and Evangelism instead of Promotion.
