Through extensive social media campaigns, the Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPSG) has cultivated a highly active online community, and attained more than 20 million fans across their product Facebook pages for Dr Pepper, Snapple, 7UP, Sunkist Soda and Sundrop. These campaigns have clearly established a strong interactive audience.
With the growing popularity and use of social networks within their audience, Robert Stone, DPSG Director of Interactive Media, saw a greater opportunity to— “interact with our consumers, on their own terms, by streamlining the process that initiates that engagement with DPSG brands”.
In researching solutions, he quickly identified social login as a solution to fit their needs.
Stone knew that by removing any friction associated with a traditional registration form, they could help fans engage with their favorite brands more easily – on their websites as well as within their marketing campaigns. The first deployment of social login was on a popular, ongoing engagement campaign within the Facebook platform: the Every Bottle Wins! Campaign.
This campaign runs right within the 7UP and Sunkist Soda’s Facebook pages and allows users to redeem codes and deposit credits for these brands, as well as Sundrop, A&W Root Beer and Canada Dry all without leaving the Facebook interface. Upon arrival at the Facebook app page, fans simply choose an existing identity like Facebook, Google, or Yahoo! to create an account or log in and get started.
When fans use social login, DPSG gains a 360-degree view of these valuable consumers by unifying data from previous promotions, campaigns and website visits, along with rich permission-based social profile data. With these fan insights, DPSG is able to improve future campaigns and message targeting, provide a personalized experience on brand sites, and engage with fans in more meaningful ways.
In these efforts, DPSG is leveraging the Janrain User Management Platform to facilitate a seamless registration process for fans while gathering social profile data, and then storing that data in a hosted profile database to achieve the following results:

DPSG set out to gain a deeper understanding of their highly engaged base of brand advocates. By deploying the Janrain User Management Platform, DPSG has converted a high portion of their legacy fan database to social login users, improved new user registration rates and is storing rich social profile data that fans have given them permission to access. The industry leader is now armed with actionable user data to inform their marketing efforts and provide meaningful, compelling campaign strategies to fans in order to cultivate a growing, ardent following.
