Marketing is often seen as an art than a science but to see through the lens of millions of consumers and to understand what their inherent and unsaid motivations and fears are is more difficult than it sounds. However, this is exactly what marks a ‘great’ Marketer from a ‘good’ one! A lot of marketers rely on Digital Marketing these days because it provides them with data to guide their strategies. Let’s have a look at some brands and their Digital Marketing campaigns that have cracked the Marketing code on a regular basis.
An effective digital marketing campaign connects with potential customers on an emotional level and establishes a lasting relationship. However, it can be difficult to figure out how to establish this meaningful connection. So, it's never a bad idea to look at some of the top digital marketing campaigns to see how they pulled it off when you're looking for some inspiration. Analyzing successful digital marketing campaigns is the best way to learn what the audience responds to, and what’s effective, and what isn't in this digital age.
Here Are Some Of The Best Digital Marketing Campaigns Of All Times
1. Email Marketing - Netflix’s Mastery Of Re-Engagement
Email Marketing continues to be one of the most powerful tools to take your business to the next level with the right strategy. According to the Data & Marketing Association report, email marketing has the highest ROI of all marketing channels, with 42 USD returns for every dollar spent. So, if you’re looking to create a successful email marketing campaign, you need to see what a good marketing email looks like.
Netflix’s Personalized Email
Netflix is undoubtedly the best when it comes to re-engagement and recommending content in its email marketing campaigns. The emails are personalized based on your watch history.
The above email invites users to watch other series with recommendations whenever they finish watching the current one - this cultivates customer loyalty. Here, every suggestion acts as a CTA with barely any copy at all. That might break the traditional rules of email marketing structure, but it turns out to be quite effective for Netflix. It might work for you too!
2. Video Marketing - CRED’s Viral Creative
Every month, 2 million people watch videos on YouTube. As a result, video marketing campaigns are a potent tool every marketer should use. The simplicity of video marketing campaigns is its beauty because it allows viewers to easily consume your content without having to read or scroll through a lot of information. Let's look at the CRED Campaign that went viral.

3. Mobile App Marketing - Burger King’s Bold Move
Mobile marketing campaigns are now the go-to option to reach the target audience. That’s because mobile devices account for nearly 55% of all web traffic (some sources put this number as high as 70%). One successful app marketing campaign can significantly grow your user base.
Burger King’s “Burn That Ad” Campaign
Burger King never shied away from making cheeky jibes against its competitors. This real-time troll campaign encouraged mobile users to scan their rivals’ ads. The Augmented Reality(AR) scanner would burn them virtually to win a free whopper through their mobile app. This might not be the classiest campaign but customers genuinely enjoyed trying the new technology. Also, Burger King made the best of its competitors’ investments!
