McDonald’s: Loop

With the scheme being trialed in Northamptonshire, 0ur three-pronged launch plan concentrated on ‘how to’ video content and a media strategy that focused on a regional media and influencers first plan alongside a national exclusive. Dan Jones from The Sun and local influencer were among the first to trial the scheme at the Wellingborough restaurant.

The resulting 10 pieces of in-depth positive coverage included four national hits and helped deliver returns in the pilot stores.
