If you analyzed Dunkin’ Donuts opening activation, you probably will come up with two main takeouts:

  • Advertising isn’t the ultimate key of success, but a good marketing strategy

A smart promotion has been able to drive a tremendous traffic to the store opening using social media. As yo can see, the post hasn’t thousands of interactions, but it found its way to people, how? simple it’s the word of mouth, and the private communities power
Keep in mind, It’s not about advertising, but the marketing strategy behind it. Smart & risky approaches help businesses win new customers and retain existing ones.

  • Planning the two results-scenarios is a must 

In this case, if Dunkin Donuts post didn’t go viral as planned, so there should be a backup plan to save the opening day. The second scenario what if succeeded to generate a high traffic visitors to the opening? Dunkin’ Donuts has to have a professional event organizers to manage the crowd, to save the day.
