Campaign Measurement

Rather than post about that campaign again, here are my thoughts on what we should look at when evaluating all campaigns – not just this one.

1. Did it get people talking?

2. Did it drive a long term benefit or association to the brand?

3. Were sales affected by the campaign – did they increase or was a long term decline arrested?

4. Is the sales affect sustainable without prolonged media support/heavy-up?

5. Was the campaign profitable? Did sales exceed 15x the total cost of the campaign*?

6. If sales were not a priority, did the campaign acheive its strategic imperative?

* not sure where I saw this but I do remember seeing something which said that your marketing budget should, generally, be one fifteenth of your total sales. A link to back this up would be nice.
