“How the streaming giant presents itself as a TV and movie super fan and uses meme-able, self-aware social media content to keep us watching more.”
“two significant goals for 2019. The first is to engage more on Reddit, where its presence is scarcest. The second is to bring more of its meme-happy approach into the real world, to merge the social energy with unique, in-the-flesh experiences that can then be turned into more social content.”
Hurray!! “The world has become completely digital and – as my fellow Marketing Week columnist Tom Goodwin has noted – just as referring to your computer as an ‘electrical laptop’ would strike everyone as odd, using the D prefix in any marketing in the near future will come across as slightly batty.”
“PR like a pro / ‘KLM needs to do something to draw attention and earn media, instead of trying to outspend the others,’ Ralf Hesen, strategy director at DDB & Tribal, told Contagious. ‘KLM’s brand is its most differentiating asset.’ As we explained in our case study, KLM has significantly less marketing budget than some of its competitors and can’t afford to spend money on a global TV spot, so PR and social media have become an important part of its international marketing strategy.”
“Your current or future customer is not interested in your product, they are interested in solving a problem or challenge, usually both organizational and personal.
By educating customers, they will make informed decisions and look to you as the subject matter expert.
you build your brand awareness by personalizing your brand, you establish yourself as a thought leader in your industry, and you increase traffic to your website with each post by using SEO friendly keywords.”
“The real problem is people are spending too much money on the short-term activation stuff. Programmatic and paid search is not enough to generate growth for brands. What we need to do is get people to understand the long-term power of brand building and see that TV and online video together can really do that brand job,” Mr Binet said.”
“The really big problem is not the tension between #digital and #traditional media, it’s this tension between brand building and activation and people getting the wrong balance.”
“”So it awakens the emotional stuff, and then ‘we’ve got the product for you at the price for you’. When you get those two things working together then everything lights up.”
#engagement : hashtag#visual or hashtag#video? hashtag#data tells all… “Interestingly enough, we found that images (not video) regularly receive the most engagement. However, consistent with the data above, average engagement per image dropped from 9,370 per post in Q1 2017 to just 3,454 per post in Q2 2018. Respectively, average engagement per video fell from 5,486 to 2,867. Here’s a quick chart to show the differences between types of content.”
Jason Beckerman, CEO of social advertising platform Unified, said Facebook is “really a pay-to-play ecosystem now,” adding, “The days of seeing significant engagement from organic are pretty much over. Truthfully, all companies should be exploring paid social advertising—and they don’t need to have huge budgets, either. Depending on their goal, they can see huge return on investment with the right targeting, creative, audience targeting and strong campaign management capability.”
