shared by Carri Bugbee about 23 hours ago - No Cached
  • Viacom is taking steps toward offering advertisers guarantees for the social media impact it can give them.
  • The resulting measurement platform -- dubbed Echograph -- will bring a level of accountability to social media that has yet to be seen from TV networks, Mr. Lucas said. It will let Viacom give clients data on reach, influencers, engagement, age and gender breakdowns and hashtag popularity, among others.

  • A hypothetical buy under the new program could instead involve a marketer commissioning custom social-ready content -- video, gifs, images -- from Viacom Velocity, to be distributed through the company's various social accounts and its partnerships with players like Twitter and Tumblr.
  • Echograph will be exclusive to Viacom through October, but Mass Relevance Chief Strategy Officer Jesse Redniss said they may look to partner with other TV networks and companies to provide this data in the future.

    How advertisers can plan for TV and Twitter

    There are three levels of integration between TV and Twitter activity depending on a brand's market and aims: 

    Integration: where a TV campaign is planned and executed with specific Twitter content and activity built in and around it from the outset
    Anticipation: being more thoughtful of how Twitter and TV will work together in a brand strategy.  Brands need to plan ahead for TV moments and prepare content to take advantage of it.  They need to include hashtags on their TV ads but have a clear purpose to them - e.g. driving people to a Promoted Trend to find out more information about a product and move consumers along the purchase journey
    Association: at the simplest level, if a brand is not advertising on TV, it can still be associated with it as its customers will be watching TV and there is an opportunity to contribute

AwesomenessTV boss talks YouTube networks for kids: 'I don't think we're replacing tele... - 0 views

  • Robbins, whose career has included producing TV shows Smallville and One Tree Hill, admitted that it's still much more profitable to have a popular TV show than a popular YouTube show, but sees that changing.

    "The advertising model is catching up very slowly. Right now TV is getting this much money, and YouTube is getting this much," said Robbins, with gestures to indicate huge and tiny ad revenues respectively.

  • That's one reason why DreamWorks bought AwesomenessTV so early in its growth. Robbins said the company plans to spend around $10m creating shows this year, from bigger projects like Side Effects to smaller videos designed for viral sharing.
  • "There's a handful of companies in Los Angeles right now who I think are going to be the next generation of cable networks,

  • What would Robbins be doing if he was in charge of Nickelodeon in 2013, for example, to respond to changing habits of their audience, and disruptive competition from the YouTube world?

    "The one thing that I would do: I don't think they make enough content. If you look at the primetime schedule on most of those networks, there are three to four original shows on, and it's not enough. It used to be enough when there were only two channels, but now with a mobile and a tablet, I have so many choices," said Robbins.

  • "That's the big problem: the model is broken. Their shows are relatively expensive to make, so they can only afford to make a certain number of them. So they are sort of stuck, and until they figure out how to change that model, you're going to see the audience keep eroding."
  • children are still sitting on their sofas watching videos, but the source is now YouTube and the devices are smartphones and tablets. "It's not just my kids, or kids in the US. It's kids everywhere," said Robbins, adding that half his company's views come from outside the US, and that half its views and comments come from mobile devices.

YouTube superstars: the generation taking on TV - and winning | Tech | The Guardian - 0 views

  • There is growing consensus that traditional media, particularly TV, need to learn lessons from this. "YouTube is beginning to behave like a market leader," noted Elisabeth Murdoch in her 2012 MacTaggart lecture. "Believe at your own risk that their platform is based on homemade videos of cats in washing machines… Brands and talent are using YouTube to create direct-to-consumer relationships. Michelle Phan is the world's most popular make-up expert with over 600 million views. Yes – that's equivalent to a global Olympic audience generated by a 22-year-old putting on Lady Gaga makeup."
  • I'm a professional. If you expect me to jump at the opportunity to do something for free, like you're doing me a solid? No." Perhaps the scariest part of that comment for the old media is that these twenty-somethings know Jamie Oliver best for his supermarket advertising.
  • Cable television offers hundreds of channels, while YouTube gives us potentially millions from a global pool. The second is that technology now provides more versatility for watching content from the internet. For copying the tips from a make-up video, you might choose to use a smartphone in the bathroom; you can watch vlogs in bed on a tablet; for longer, more stylised productions, you've still got the big screen.

  • "If TV is a monologue then YouTube is a conversation," says Benjamin Cook. "The communal side of TV has been outdated for 10 years. Something like Doctor Who, The X Factor or the Olympics will suddenly get everyone crowded round the TV again, but in general TV just feels more distant to me. I will sit in bed and watch Charlie McDonnell's latest vlog and you feel far closer – like you're watching a friend."
  • at the end of 2010 when the site introduced TrueView, a system that allowed users to skip almost two-thirds of its adverts easily; the innovation being that Google could now charge much more for the ones people did watch to the end
  • "One thing that's completely different is that a lot of creators involve their audience in the creative process," says Sara Mormino, director of YouTube content operations in Europe. "So they ask the audience questions, they ask them to comment and they are also able to look at the stats of exactly who is watching.
  • Feedback is immediate and unfailingly honest, and they tailor their performances every time they post a video. Such an environment has given rise to rabid fandom.
  • When you speak to the YouTubers, it's hard not to think that old-style broadcasters should be concerned by the lack of interest in and sometimes disdain for their product. What this generation (and their audience) loves about the platform is that they grew up with it; it feels like it belongs to them. They make the videos, unmediated by grown-ups, and put them out into the world where they are judged by their peer group.
  • n January 2012, Elisabeth Murdoch's production company, Shine, bought ChannelFlip, a media agency that represents some popular YouTubers, and is expanding rapidly

Twitter and TV: How should brands respond to multi-screening? | MyCustomer - 0 views

  • On their own, Twitter efforts resulted in a less-than-inspiring 4% boost in positive reactions to the well-known supermarket. Similarly, TV only managed to generate a measly 4% incline. However, as a twosome, TV and Twitter notched up a far greater 21% rise – that’s 21% more people willing to do their next shop at Sainsbury’s than before.
  • “This interaction between TV and Twitter is not something that we’ve orchestrated,” Mortensen reminded us. “It’s something that the audience are doing themselves. It’s driven by people, so it’s very natural.”
  • The findings indicated two different ways of engaging with Twitter in connection with TV – the ‘lean forward’ and ‘lean back’ approaches. Those who ‘lean back’ while interacting want stimulation without having to commit. In causal browsing mode, they will switch between the first and the second screen at will. Advertisers should not make the mistake of thinking that this nonchalant attitude creates disengagement though – having both screens working together keeps people in the living room in front of ads and makes them less likely to wander off. This type of audience are still taking in messages implicitly, and often find themselves unconsciously responding to brands' triggers.

  • Those who interact while ‘leaning forward’, meanwhile, are actively looking to extend the TV experience. They seek to become part of the show and become empowered by having their voice heard. This kind of interaction is very emotive, and it’s this emotion that heightens engagement.
  • three-quarters of users look up a tweet when they see it advertised. As a result, TV ads which feature hashtags drive 42% more conversation than those which don’t.  
  • different types of TV shows have different social rhythms which determine the points at which people tweet, meaning brands must choose their moment carefully. So, advertisers need to understand how broadcasted content works in order to anticipate activity and capitalise on prime moments.
  • 3. Association – If your brand isn’t on TV, or if a campaign has come to an end, you can still engage your audience on Twitter by capitalising on trending TV moments.
  • the findings show that, on the whole, entertaining tweets – which are either interesting or funny, or best of all, both – are the most effective.
  • Receiving a retweet “evokes a strong positive emotional reaction” according to Thinkbox, which, for advertisers, is right on the money. Literally.  
  • “The increasing evidence we’re seeing is that there is a symbiotic effect. So when tweets go up, viewing [of the related TV show] goes up... and when the viewing of a show goes up we see evidence of tweets going up as well.”

Social Media Is No Fad, Cautions Bowditch | - 1 views

  • “There is no way a journalist can be successful without social media,” he said. “Journalists now have to understand that broadcast is not always the primary delivery medium.”
  • social media is a growing part of the media landscape, including the fact that there are 1.3 billion Facebook users and 646 million Twitter users.
  • Bowditch added that stations will make a serious mistake if they try to integrate advertising into their social media reach. “How do you monetize social media?” he asked, rhetorically. “You don’t. As soon as you advertise … they turn it off and go to the next one.”

Rather than focusing on creating a news story to fit a certain timeslot in a newscast rundown, they must shift to a “story-centric” model of news production and take advantage of their websites and social media posts where time is not a limiting factor, he said.

MediaPost Publications Tablets Changing Content Consumption Habits 03/27/2014 - 0 views

  • With the rapid adoption of the tablet as a content device, interest in streaming content has nearly doubled in the past year (from 17% in 2012 to 32% in 2013). Consumers have also expressed more interest in consuming programming on different devices and from different sources. (Indeed, younger Millennials spent more time watching content on non-television devices, even when that content was originally created for television, Belson says.)
  • “This is the first year that consumers have started to decouple the notion that content from a particular source [must be viewed on] a different device,”
  • Only 6% of consumers who had pay-TV services said they were considering giving up the services in the next year, according to the survey.

  • Yet with all of these devices in consumers’ hands, multitasking is on the rise. According to the survey, 86% of consumers admitted to multitasking on another device while watching television (up from 72% in 2011). However, only 22% of those multitaskers are doing something directly related to the programs on the television set. The disparity is both a challenge and an opportunity for marketers, Belson says.

As part of the project, Amazon has held talks with the creators of "Betas," a series about a Silicon Valley startup that Amazon produced last year for Prime, these people said.
