This is an assignment I did for my adv. research class at the academy of art university. It's about listening to the digital chatter that surrounds a brand, my choice was Bic lighters.

(Note: The first presentation went great. Now my teacher called for a second draft for the whole class, so here it is! I resolved all the spacing issues.)

Transcript

  • 1. Digital Chatter ! about! ! Lighters Paris Daniell – Account Planner Academy of Art University
  • 2. What Bic is saying! in the digital space. Slideshow of different Bic lighters on homepage. Account access which provides you no features except a newsletter. Intended message of website is unclear, provides little relevancy for potential Bic customers. Product info and two different advertising entertainment outlets on flickyourbic.com website.
  • 3. How is Bic currently engaging the digital audience? Selling lighters with fantasy NASCAR and Design-a-lighter workshop. Seriously? “Being
featured
in
the
Design‐A‐Lighter
Gallery
in
no
way
reflects
the
possibility
of
the
Submission
being
considered
for
use
on
Flick
Your
BIC
packaging
or
adverEsing.”

 What does this actually say for Bic lighters Semi-functional paint shop, where you can create your own as a brand in the digital space? Not a whole lot. Bic graphic and upload it to a gallery. Lack of relevance for the actual target audience After your work of art is finished you can email your lighter to a stimulates very little digital chatter, crippling the friend, making it “viral”. effectiveness of their “viral” advertising. There isnʼt much incentive to this advertising diversion other than a chance to make it Into the featured gallery (see quote above taken from T&C).
  • 4. Quantified flickyourbic.com participators. A glimpse at the demographic. March/ 31/ 2009
  • 5. What are people saying about ! flickyourbic.com? Bicʼs advertising hasnʼt influenced participators that visit their “viral” website. A search in Google brings up no non-paid links relating to the online content that Bic provides. Whatʼs being said after they spend time at the destination? Nothing is being said about fantasy NASCAR, or how cool their virtual lighter design is. The online experience that Bic provides is one that generates very little digital chatter. There is a huge incongruence in what the consumer is saying about Bic compared to what Bic is saying as an online destination. Aquot;er
researching
the
digital
cha0er
surrounding
Bic,

 I
have
found
there
are
different
categories
that

 conversa9ons
about
Bic
fall
into.

 So what's really being said about Bic?

 Music Appreciation The show ended, they left the stage, and I remember burning my thumb while holding a Bic lighter high up in the air for what seemed like forever, and it stayed lit until Crosby, Stills & Nash did an encore. Thanks guys. Enjoyed http://idonthavetimeto.wordpress.com/2009/03/06/is-it-live-oris-it-minorex/ drakesizzle:

 Everyone was holding up their lighters. It was like being *in* a night sky, with stars twinkling all around you. ENCORE!! WE WANT MORE! In real life, this was awesome - there were about 45,000 bic lighters lit up at once! http://www.oldbuckeye.com/pontiacsilverdome77/
  • 7. anjuili: Smores made with a bic lighter: not the best method, but still tasty 
 Curious poleclimberben: @consectarius WD 40 and a bic lighter seemed to work wonders on my fire ants. quite entertaining as well. wind gusts are havoc on leg hair 
 Mischievous Urban Dictionary: Bic 71 up, 51 down A 'Bic' is the most common type of lighter available. Tried, trusted and relatively inexpensive, its the only type of lighter I use. My father taught me the most important recipe I ever quot;Pass me the Bic, so I can light my cigarette.quot; learned. To make fire you need: Trusted heat (bic lighter) fuel (newspaper, dry grass, branches) Traditional and air. rparmenter: How to spot a classy lady: the retractable Bic lighter lanyard dangling from her belt loop. Personality The apple crisp became a birthday cake stand in and in lieu of candles I blew a bic lighter out over the crisp 29 times in a row. (harder than it sounds) I once again felt very loved, I have good friends here in Vancouver. http://walterinvancouver.blogspot.com/2009/03/and-now-we-are-29.html Representative
  • 8. Quality Open Beer Bottle with BIC Lighter and a little bit of leverage - taservictim h0p://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieK3_X6Vc5c
 svandoren: just fished a Bic lighter out of the washing machine. Either Bic lighters are getting tougher, or my washing machine's a pussy. 
 fluxion23: Just experienced that rare occurrence Lasting where I used an entire Bic lighter before losing it. chancegilmore: Used up a whole Bic lighter for the first time Bold before I lost it, or it got taken by accident. Alright! benmarvin: Pro Tip: Nose-hair trimmers are expensive and complicated.Be a man and use a Bic lighter. tdoster: just harvested the flint from a Bic lighter Useful to fix my zippo lighter - pretty cool Some people might say it's not a very smart idea to throw 6 Bic lighters into a blender. Disposable Those people would be right. Blendtecʼs will it blend? A few words about disposable lighters One of my earliest memories is of sitting in my parents' chevy blazer at an old drive-in movie theatre, and during the intermission, they showed commercials, and one of those commercials was two Bic lighters talking to each other. I donʼt remember anything about the movie, but I remember those lighters. Remember, you can never have too many lighters, because you will eventually lose them all. -Bob h0p://evil‐bob‐420.livejournal.com/

The
Bic
lighter
is
somewhere
on
the
top
ten
list

 of
missed
things
in
a
post
apocalypBc
world
 No‐one
knows
when
the
first
Bic
was
stolen
but
I'm
sure
it
was
shortly
aquot;er
the
second
it
was
ever
created.

 Some
purposely
steal
the
lighter
but
I
believe
the
majority
of
incidences
are
accidental.
 Few
ever
wonder
of
the
phenomena
but
I
feel
that
it
is
due
to
quot;muscle
memory”.
