  • In the Autumn and Winter of 2008, Dr Johan Bollen from Indiana University Bloomington collected Tweets and other online data and rated them for their emotional content. When him and his team analysed the data, they found that Twitter users’ collective mood sings coincided with national events. Happiness shot up around Thanksgiving.
  • But DrBollen took this one step further. When he compared trends in the national mood with movements of the Down Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) he noticed that changes in anxiety predicted swings in the share-price index. Spikes in anxiety levels were followed around three days later by dips in the price of shares. Reasons for this are not 100% clear. One possible explanation is that the falling prices were caused by traders’ tendency to exit risky positions when feeling strung up.
  • I-NET bridge
  • Tell Ten is a brand of Universal Pictures International UK and Ireland. Users sign up as Tell Ten subscribers and are then put through a lottery to win tickets to see films for free, before they’re released. The idea is that film lovers get rewarded for loving the film industry by receiving free tickets. In return, Tell Ten hope that they’ll tell ten friends to see the film. Recent research shows that word-of-mouth is still the best form of marketing out there and that 15% of all brand conversations refer to marketing or media that’s led by the Internet. Social media encourages word-of-mouth.
  • Wise Window is a marketing firm based in California. They use social media activity to forecast demand for products. One of its clients include Paramount Pictures.
  • To launch True Blood, HBO launched a series of websites that effectively helped develop the back story and set the tone for this new world where vampires co-exist with humans. These sites include a dating site, a real-time website where viewers from all over the world discuss what's happening on True Blood, a blog written from a vampires perspective, an anti-vampire coalition, and a website for the manufacturers of TruBlood.
  • To get the buzz started in the blogging community they sent two messages. First a nicely crafted letter with unusual gothic packaging and then they actually sent them a sample of TruBlood.

  •  Symantec wanted to differentiate itself from the competition by creating an interactive, technologically innovative conference experience that raised awareness of the brand and generated sales leads. The conference took place in London in April of this year. Symantec InfoSecurity mobile app was created for iPhone and Blackberry, allowing delegates to plan their day, select presentations and receive notifications. The app included travel updates, local information, exhibitor information, corporate information such as white papers and podcasts and details about Symantec’s augmented reality instant-win game.
  • The game was designed to drive people to the stand to win a prize with the iPad topping the bill. Flyers featuring a black-and-white augmented reality symbol were distributed, inviting delegates to stand on the stage and hold their flyer in front of the webcam to view the image revealing their prize. Delegates waited up to 40 minutes to play and the Symantec team held topical panel discussions, presentations, and digital whiteboard sessions for the captive audience.
  • The target of a 1000 app downloads was far exceeded, with more than 46,000 achieved – 10, 482 delegates attended the conference.The app also reached number four in the business download chart. Compared to 2009, there was a 69% increase in qualified leads and a 174% increase in converted opportunities. The overall ROI was 31:1.
