Mars Wrigley ran four functional advertising campaigns with different messages and one brand equity campaign.
The campaigns ran in 377 grocery stores across the country, including SpartanNash, Ridleys, Bashas', and Fareway, for 16 weeks.
A regression analysis was used to determine the sales lift overall, and lift for each of the five campaigns, in a set of test stores versus a set of control stores. This analysis also controlled for convoluting factors like price, seasonality, and store foot traffic.
Mars Wrigley's goal with the Extra Gum campaigns was to assess the impact of different creative messaging on sales lift.
One brand equity campaign that showcased general brand awareness for Extra Gum was run alongside four functional campaigns with specific content that addressed the following consumer interests:
- Boredom Relief
For example, the "Focus" creative featured an animation of two girls studying in a library. One girl is struggling to focus, so the other hands her a stick of Extra Gum— which then helps her regain concentration.
