Gimme Da Fries Viral Meme Campaign

Campaign Analysis of ‘Gimme Da Fries’ Viral Meme Challenge


The Original Objectives stated in my pre-campaign marketing plan were:

  • 400 Impression on Imgur
  • 450 Impressions on Twitter
  • 35 Engagements on Twitter
  • 5 Retweets on Twitter
  • 25 likes on Twitter
  • 20 Likes on Facebook
  • 5 Shares on Facebook
  • 1 Re-pin on Pinterest
  • 2 likes on Pinterest

However, after beginning the campaign, I determined that the Pinterest portion of the original plan did not fit as well with the target demographic and would not be effective. As a result, it was excluded from the campaign.

Campaign Analysis:

Looking back on my campaign there are definitely some things that worked well and some that I could improve upon in a future campaign. One thing that I did well was identifying a good audience for my twitter campaign which led to an engagement rate of about 2.75% which falls in the high end of the norm for promoted tweets. The timing of the promoted tweets (Thursday night & Sunday Afternoon) also seemed to lead to a great number of impressions. I think my biggest weakness in the campaign was the meme itself because a lot of people were seeing the meme, but not enough of them thought it was funny/engaging enough to click on it. Therefore, in the future, I would definitely put more time into creating and testing the meme. Another thing I could have done was try to engage with specific people on twitter using my meme to garner more organic buzz and to harness the twitter bases of more established users.
