Digital Marketing Review – Soft Drinks Market Sector by NUI Maynooth students

As part of an E-marketing project, myself and three other NUI Maynooth students conducted a digital review of brands in the Soft drinks industry both internationally as well as here in Ireland. As students who indulge in a fizzy drink on almost a daily basis, we were keen to learn more about the market and the brands which dominate it. Our review focuses on five popular Soft Drink brands in both the global and Irish market: Coca Cola, Pepsi, Dr Pepper, Irn Bru and Club Orange. We have looked at the performance of the social media platforms of the five brand’s, and have conducted a boss metrics analysis of their respective Facebook and Twitter accounts. Finally, we compiled our findings and presented key insights in a final report.   [hana-code-insert name='NUIM softdrinkk slide' /]   The following video highlights each brands respective commitment to social media through facts about each brand and there use of social media.

Digital Marketing Review – Tourism Market Sector by NUI Maynooth students

Our project was based on five organizations that promote tourism in their respective locations. We chose Discover Ireland, Visit Scotland, Discover NI, Italia and Definitely Dubai as our organizations and examined both their interactions with social media platforms and their websites. Doing so we gained an insight into how these organizations promote themselves and how much of an audience they are achieving. Using Boss Metrics we were able too see how the more organizations post on Facebook or Twitter the more responsive their recipients become by ‘liking’ or retweeting their content and becoming more involved with the organization. Also using the Boss Metrics we were fit to see that competitions such as that ran by Visit Scotland were highly effective in promoting the organization and raising its online profile. Our team consisted of Conor Kelly, Keith Bracken, Sinead Sexton and Frances Bell. [hana-code-insert name='NUIM tourism slide' /] [hana-code-insert name='NUIM tourism youtube' /]

We have conducted a digital media review of the Irish Alcohol Sector, focusing on popular Beer & Cider brands across their Websites, Mobile and Social Media platforms including Facebook and Twitter. We chose Bulmers Ireland, Heineken, Budweiser, Carlsberg and Guinness Ireland. We then analyzed their data and highlighted some interesting insights; the tables below indicate our findings. Facebook Analysis Facebook Top Stories What we discovered Heineken has the most fans on Facebook while Bulmers Ireland has the lowest. Budweiser, Heineken and Guinness use their sponsorship of events to engage customers with their brand. Budweiser have the highest amount of people talking about them (PTAT) with 5.10% followed by Guinness with 4.52% and Heineken with 3.10%. However Bulmers and Carlsberg had a poor PTAT rating of 1.6% and 1.5% respectively. Heineken also have the highest rating for posts with a high number of shares utilizing their large fan base to engage with their larger target audience. Key Insight Competitions are used by the 5 companies to interact with customers and photos are the most popular content type. Bulmers Ireland are not utilising their Facebook page and are not attracting the potential number of customers that they could be. Although Guinness has…

Digital Marketing Review – Gambling Market Sector by NUI Maynooth students

For the past few months we’ve been working as a team to create a digital marketing report for our mn319 module. The purpose of the report was to choose the top 5 companies in a particular sector and compare their online presence within the social media hub otherwise known as Facebook and Twitter. The tools we used were Socialmedia.ie’s BOSS Metrics and Google Analytics for our mobile review.  Our chosen sector was the Gambling Industry and the companies we compared were: Paddy Power, Ladbrokes, Bet365 and Betfair and BoyleSports. By no means was this easy and non stressful, but the facts which we stumbled upon during our research made the project extremely interesting and exciting to say the least.  As a team ‘’Bonding’’ trip we all headed off to the reputable Punchestown Festival to experience the atmosphere of the gambling world, we think we’ll be making an annual return! Check out our YouTube video and SlideShare presentation to get a greater insight into our findings. Enjoy -Alice, Conor, Michael, Sinéad- Team Gamblers!
