- TV is like rain. We catch the rain in buckets and re-deploy it to the social channels to make our sales opportunity and brand grow. - Add momentum and velocity (social) to the rain (TV), capture it and circulate it back into the online process thereby advancing the brand and buying cycle. Kia is taking TV content/advertising and reengaging audiences by using that content along with other content in social channels.
What’s the difference and how has this become a part of your marketing strategy? GH: We’ve found that in some instances TV shows are digital events themselves and ripe for social opportunity whether it’s maximizing content opps with the actual show programming, ads that happen during the commercial break and we’ve even seen people taking KPD shopping actions on the web site or posting shopping behaviors in social. So what this can look like is TV show is going, commercial break or in program content stimulates viewer to go online at which point they could’ve decided to watch the more content or the same piece of content on YouTube then from there actually start to take shopper actions like build and price, locate a dealer, etc.
- “Innovation in advertising always introduces some terms which may seem foreign to classical advertising “Mad Men” types and marketing executives – but Kia has turned to some creative new methods to engage car buyers with very positive market share gains” - TV no longer a “one trick pony”. - 75 – 85% of TV users are using the second screen. - Kia has intersected the trend toward second screening, couch commerce with cool memorable advertising – hip hop, space babies, hamsters – on TV and social. Reusing and distributing content in social channels dramatically increases the life of a TV adGH: These are stats used from the writer of the article and would need to dig up to see if it’s sourced or not. Or do you have this?87% - NPD – 87%of US Entertainment consumers reported to be using the second screen. https://www.npd.com/wps/portal/npd/us/news/press-releases/divided-viewing-second-screens-vying-for-tv-viewers-attention/85% of tablet and smart phone users use the second screen- Nielsen - http://techcrunch.com/2012/12/05/nielsen-85-percent-of-tablet-and-smartphone-owners-use-devices-as-second-screen-monthly-40-percent-do-so-daily/
However, the results are similar to that of email marketing with just 3% engaging, and now increasingly being question at the senior levelGH: But keep in mind 3% at a base of 500K is still 15k potential organic engagements which can be amplified through media.
Great content is key. In September, Kia received 14,000+ tweets about this hip-hop hamster Kia Soul commercial in one week alone. (Bluefin Labs) Consumers loved campaigns and wanted to share the commercial, video, and images with their friends.GH: Or doing something (It’s the difference between being a brand participant vs. a brand spectator).

Allow advocates to tell their stories to spark excitement about the brand. Provide a variety of assets – photos, videos – for advocates to use to create high quality, unique blog content
Because the theme of the road trip is universal, it resonated with various different audiences – young/old, male/female.Sparked lots of conversation from the audience (ie: “My first car was a Kia”) GH: The universal thematic provided the catalyst for genuine and interesting conversations.
Advocates produced lots of unique content.GH: The social club not only produced content but syndicated the content to their audiences casting a wider net to get our vehicle/brand story in front of more people.
198 Kia social club members 244 blog posts Great long form blog content – engaging and high qualityActive community that can be used throughout 2013GH: Probably will ad this is just our external influencer group. Layer in our internal influencer group (i.e. owners) this base grows exponentially.
Great success with advocates and learned advocates = content distribution. Kia is doubling down on that success with more campaigns in the social spheres. GH: With the initial success were seeing with content creation and distribution we are looking to push this a little harder to see if we can generate an even larger impact.
Super Bowl XLVII was a huge success in social TV – game itself had a total of 30.6 million public Tweets and Facebook comments. 150% YOY growth volume of social commentary for 2013 Super Bowl vs. previous year Success of Kia’s last 2 Super Bowl campaigns as going “beyond TV” to online.- Ran a non-incentivized Super Bowl prompt that resulted in 50 active influencers. No currency given. Received great blog content and a lot of short form (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) sharing
