Digital marketing industry case study library


Motorcycle tour company Route 66 Harley-Davidson created a 'mobile club' to promote its discounts and foster brand loyalty. The company used a social media campaign, in-store marketing and previous customers of the dealership. Members then received daily alerts offering a 20% discount on a different merchandise item each day. This increased customer awareness of the merchandise inventory and drew more customers into the store during a time of the year when sales are typically slower. The dealership had significant increase in sales of the specific items discounted during the campaign period. High-dollar items also saw increased sales. On sale T-shirts purchased on T-shirt Day was over 250% more than a normal day, on Leather Jacket Day, seven leather jackets were sold at the 20% discount, representing a 16% increase over jacket sales the previous week.
