About this entry

Marriott Rewards' vision was simple: Acquire new members through frictionless experiences powered by tech, allowing users to seamlessly join the loyalty program without ever leaving Facebook.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

People are spending more time on their mobile devices than ever before, and Facebook's Lead Gen solution makes it easier for people to connect with businesses, wherever they are. Reaping the rewards of membership should be easy, including how new members discover and join Marriott's award-winning loyalty program. In June, the loyalty program partnered with Facebook to build an industry-first solution that enables potential new members to enroll in the program without ever leaving the Facebook environment.

The campaign leveraged a custom data integration, solutions engineering directly with Facebook, and an innovative adaptation of online forms. This approach transformed the sign-up process via social media by eliminating cumbersome and unnecessary steps, delivering a truly seamless and easy way to join Marriott Rewards.

Marriott Rewards had recently (March) streamlined their enrollment form on, reducing the number of fields required from 12 to five (5). The same methodology and approach was leveraged for Facebook, working in partnership to build a custom form specific to Marriott Rewards' needs including:
