Visit Brand Key’s Loyalty Engagement Index Web site and browse their measurement methods. Is McDonald’s Super Bowl commercial aiming to increase customer loyalty? Do you think the “performance” of the commercial is worth $4.5 million (just for the 30-seconds air time alone)?
Yes, the commercial was aimed to connect with customers and increase the customer loyalty which would lead to increase sales as it has seen a slump over recent quarters. No, don’t think the performance was worth $4.5 million.
2. Most businesses must segment and target their market. Do you think this McDonald’s commercial is “targeted”? If so, who are the intended target audience? If not, is there any other commercial during the game with an apparent target market? (There is no reference page for this question).
I don’t think that McDonald’s commercial is targeted to any specific group. In the commercial, they showed customers from all age groups and it did not seem like it had a specific target market.
The Dove commercial for Men care products targeted the modern men, specifically fathers showing children young and old variously exclaiming "Daddy" or "Dad." 3. What are the components of customer perceived value (benefits and costs) in choosing among fast food restaurants? (Ch5. P.12)

It promises that McDonald’s would always do its best to provide the best experience for their customers and that they care for customers 6.

7. How would you derive customer life time value (CLV) for a typical McDonald’s customer? There is no need to be quantitative—only at the conceptual level. (Ch5, p.21)
