Christmas is over, I need a drink
Posted by: Bianca Ohannessian, Senior Content Manager
Seasonal posts are a big part of content marketing. Some global brands prefer not to mention Christmas at all but for many brands it’s the most important time of the year (the hashtag #christmaslist has been trending since summer). This year, drinks companies really got in the festive spirit; after all, everyone likes a drink at Christmas.

    Follow Me, I'm Right Behind You: 50 Metrics To Track for Social Marketers →

     

    I’m getting quite fond of lists. I know they always go down well in the blogosphere but my 80 Rules of Social Media seems to have performed better than usual. There is even a poster being designed for it. Rules 10 and 23, possibly my favourite rules, talk about ROI as the most important…

    Third-party data targeting: a new dawn in Facebook advertising

    inside-social:

    image

    Facebook have launched third-party data targeting in the US for all ad types on desktop and mobile. This means fully targeted ads based on behavior on and off of Facebook are now possible. The addition of these ‘partner categories’ now makes Facebook ads one of the most accurate ways to target your specific audience. Previously ads were mainly targeted based on a user’s likes, location and profile information – largely data that users must input themselves.


    Third party targeting based on user’s browsing and purchase habits opens up a new range of possibilities -
    grocery spending, occupation and car ownership are some of the options available in the new ‘partner categories’. It’s also possible to break categories down, for example in the automotive category brands can target aftermarket and in market users, and combine third party categories with Facebook’s broad categories. A segment like ‘People in the USA who like BMW on Facebook’ could now become ‘People in the USA in management, who are luxury brand buyers and are in the market for a full-size sedan and like BMW on Facebook.’ Another option for advertisers is to target visitors of websites in their brand’s sector, even if those users haven’t yet liked the brand’s Facebook page.

    Virgin Mobile India : Tapping into the Wisdom of Cricket Crazy Fans

    image

    Needing to act as a challenger in the Indian market, Virgin Mobile India questioned the accepted wisdom that you had to advertise heavily and target older customers. But to reach the Millennial generation, it tried a different strategy that paid off. Virgin Mobile India, used bitesized videos on Youtube to attract Indian youth.

    They chose to portray the spirit of youthful rebellion in its communications and focus resources largely within the online environment.YouTube formed the core of this video- centric campaign. At first three brand films championing youthful rebellion were released to kickoff the campaign. Which was followed by  more that 100, 15-second films. The release of these films coincided with the live broadcast on YouTube of Indian Premier League ( In India Cricket is almost a religious experience )

    The humorous films of rival fans insulting’ each other’s teams over the phone was released on YouTube alongside the relevant IPL matches. Edgy language was deliberately used to maximise pass-along potential, and social currency , this reflects the way youth in India usually speak with their friends. Facebook and Twitter was used to spread awareness of the campaign with links to the Films. Twitter was used to report live scores of the match.  

    The films were viewed by the public as popular entertainment, but the underlying objective of this campaign was to create awareness of the brand, position Virgin Mobile as a youth brand and subtly sell the benefits and furthermore maximise Youtube views of the brand. 

    In a world where youth is constantly engaging with the wider world using social media platforms, it is difficult to isolate the specific contribution of the online videos on how a brand can be perceived. With this campaign it can be deduced that the humorous videos may have affected the brand’s metrics which continues to show that its communications output was considered more distinctive and innovative than that of rival Indian telecoms brands who are solely relying on advertising alone to position themselves.
