Dave’s Hot Chicken Drives Over 10K Visits

Read how Dave's Hot Chicken used GroundTruth's media mix in order to increase app downloads, online orders, and in-person visits.
After strong performances in previous campaigns with GroundTruth, Dave’s Hot Chicken returned with a new goal—to drive more app downloads with the secondary KPI of driving more visits to select locations. To entice customers, Dave’s Hot Chicken offered a free slider or milkshake to sweeten the deal.

In a six-week campaign across 59 locations, the QSR chain utilized a blend of audience, real-time, and third-party app targeting on mobile screens. During the final two weeks, GroundTruth extended support through social amplification on Facebook and Instagram to enhance results.

Real-World Behaviors

To optimize reach and impact, all six weeks of the campaign flight were supported by mobile display units. There was a healthy mix of targeting tactics and multiple creative sizes to ensure maximum reach. The targeting mix included both real-time location targeting and audience targeting.
The team amplified the campaign with targeted ads across social media as well, using both Facebook and Instagram. The rare advantage? Since GroundTruth managed the social campaign, we layered in our unique audiences on top of the standard audiences within the respective platforms for additional reach and connection to the mobile campaign.
