Ultimat Vodka Balances Facebook and Viral Video to Drive Brand Awareness
In targeting white collar professionals with a new campaign for Ultimat Vodka, alcoholic beverage manufacturer Patrón Spirits knew it had to create a program that would catch the group’s attention. The brand, which acquired Ultimat Vodka in 2007, decided on a social media– and video-heavy campaign that encouraged consumers to evaluate their work/life balance. Objective: Patrón Spirits, which has recently pumped up its brand portfolio to include brands besides tequila, wanted to drive awareness of its lesser known Polish vodka brand. Because the balance of ingredients—wheat, rye, potato—is what make vodka taste the way it does, the brand wanted to play upon that theme of “balance” and make it relevant for a 9-to-5 working audience. It also wanted to infuse social elements into the campaign, so that consumers would be apt to share it with their friends. Strategy: Ultimat’s first step was to create an online…

Marketers Still Can't Tie Social to Bottom Line

Soft metrics still the most popular
Nearly nine in 10 companies in the US will market on social media this year, according to eMarketer, indicating that the channel has become almost a requirement for most brands. But measuring success beyond soft metrics like “engagement” is still far away for many, according to research. Econsultancy and Adobe found in August that 57% of companies around the world said the deepest level at which they could track the effectiveness of social media marketing was in terms of engagement, such as the number of followers, comments and time spent on social pages. Even more agencies said this was the deepest metric their clients could track. By comparison, few were able to track bottom-line effects on revenues (12% of companies and 16% of agencies), or even the influence social media had on other marketing channels like search. And one in five companies said they were still stuck on the most basic of metrics only. Respondents were most likely to tell Econsulta…

Twitter Beats Facebook in US Mobile Ad Revenues This Year

By next year, Facebook will be ahead
Twitter will take home more US mobile advertising revenues this year than its larger cousin, Facebook, according to a new forecast by eMarketer. Twitter will earn $129.7 million in mobile advertising revenues this year in the US, eMarketer projects. Facebook, which rolled out mobile ads for the first time this year, will come in at just over half that amount, at $72.7 million in the US. Both companies earn far less mobile revenue than companies with more established mobile ad platforms like Google and Pandora, though growth in mobile revenues at both social networks is expected to remain high throughout the forecast period. The increasing focus on mobile by both Twitter and Facebook, as well as other major digital advertising publishers, will contribute to growth in the overall US mobile advertising market, which eMarketer estimates will reach $2.61 billion this year. By 2016, the US mobile advertising market is expected to near $12 billion, accordin…
