n 2013, Domino’s faced a challenge: to continue to deliver sales growth in the face of increasing competition from digital takeaway businesses and incumbent pizza chains.

Wendy’s and Facebook team for better targeting, including for Pretzel Bun
What helped was a budding relationship with Facebook, which Wendy's tapped as a kind of creative consultancy, said Ben Nemo, business lead on the restaurant team for Facebook's Global Marketing Services group. In 2012, Facebook's Global Marketing Services group reorganized to offer dedicated teams for nearly every category -- including retail, entertainment, travel, beverages and packaged food -- so that it could play an advisory role for brands, as well as develop effective marketing products for each category….Mr. Rhoten, along with Mr. Bahner, have turned to Mr. Nemo and his team to ensure their creative ideas have the potential to be successful on Facebook's mobile and desktop platforms and will generate views and engagement with the brand. Take this year's campaigns for the chain's pretzel-bun and Tuscan chicken sandwich. The pretzel-bun campaign centered around love songs dedicated to the bun...For those campaigns, Wendy's and its agencies, including WPP's VML, presented ideas to Facebook, which then gave feedback based on what's worked -- and what hasn't -- on the network in the past. Though he didn't give details on the kind of feedback used to inform creative for the two Wendy's campaigns, Mr. Nemo touted Facebook's data as more reliable than the average focus-group results. "A lot of our data is based on real behavior, and it certainly would be an asset for brands to leverage us for that kind of information," he said. Mr. Nemo noted Facebook's data can help "bring a consumer to life" with psychographics "that can inform creative.”..."We tap into partners [at Facebook] to see what kind of behaviors are popular," Mr. Rhoten said.

Nestle’s “Digital Acceleration” program primes company to expand online marketing worldwide
They've traveled to Vevey, Switzerland, from Pakistan, Portugal, Venezuela and nine other corners of the world, leaving behind homes and families for eight months of training and development as part of Nestlé headquarters' Digital Acceleration Team, a program aimed at bringing a far-flung corporation into a fast-evolving digital and social world. ...The team's space is ringed with digital screens flickering with data points about Nestlé and its brands. One screen tracks social buzz around the company's top global brands, another shows where the chatter is  coming from. A third screen traces a brand's conversations vis-à-vis competitors, while another screen displays a new tool Nestlé calls "Pulse," which tracks the types of customer-service inquiries the company is getting, a recognition that not all feedback comes via social….The push for digital acceleration comes as Nestlé faces the same challenges as many of its CPG cohorts: how to ramp up sales in fast-growing developing economies and eke out growth in developed countries where stagnant wages have reduced consumer spending power -- all against a rapidly changing media environment.

Nestle targets teens 13-17 via Facebook for its Crunch cereal in EU, Middle East
In 2013, how to create community loyalty and engage our community? We needed to find the best ways to engage our young target (13-17 years old: 16% of total Facebook users). At the same time, we needed to increase the number on fans on the Page and improve the loyalty of the entire community.

The Crunch Céréales campaign is a national campaign focused on Facebook. The campaign was not related to a launch of a product—its goal was to:

• increase the community
• increase the engagement rate 
• form a strong link with the fan community
• contextualize the posts 

The target audience was teenagers 13-17 years old—boys and girls with a “rebel” side. Our strategy was to use the Crunch Céréales character as the main content broadcaster on the Facebook Page. We made this positioning durable through a strong brand experience that involved the audience. Crunch Céréales has decided to be only focused on Facebook—it doesn’t have any website.

Our Facebook posts use pictures, ask the community questions, talk about daily stories of the community, and are contextualized with the character (adapted to exams, TV shows watched by the target, events, etc). We interact with the community to become closer to the target, using humor and personal stories about the target and the community. ... Our campaign results: 
• 16% increase in Facebook fans between January-March 2013 (1,207,000 fans at the end of the month)
• 211% increase compared to March 2012

We have stable engagement despite an explosion in the size of the Crunch Céréales community: 0.19% in 2012 versus 0.18% in 2013. Our global reach is 73%. 

The objective was to reach 1.5 million fans by the end of 2013, and we reached 1.281 million.
