    • Conversation Triggers: Sparking Conversations with Advertising & Media Ed Keller CEO, Keller Fay Group Twitter.com/kellerfay Insert Photo Emily Vanides VP Connections Research & Analytics MediaVest Insert PhotoJune 13, 2011
    • Word of Mouth is Powerful“The rewards of pursuing excellence in word-of-mouth are huge, and it can deliver a significant competitive edge few other marketing approaches can match” “It’s the most disruptive factor in marketing” “Marketing-induced consumer-to-consumer word of mouth generates more than twice the sales of paid advertising” McKinsey Quarterly, April, 2010 2
    • But What Sparks Conversation? Many assume WOM is generated by great brand experiences – Highly satisfied customers become evangelists for brands. However, marketing often sparks WOM, as well – Half of conversations about brands refer to media/marketing. To maximizing WOM, we need a clear sense of how marketing can most effectively “trigger” conversations. – Which media, at what time of day, in what venues, and relating to what topics of conversation? 3
    • WOM is at the core of SMG’s approachto marketing communications Simplifying human understanding to deliver meaningful brand experiences Our framework for designing experiences that matter 4
    • Ultimately, brands need to be apart of the conversation We live in a networked world The role of marketing is to be a spark in the communities where people live and play We have to harness the power of people‟s shared purpose & voice – Weaving into the fabric that bonds people together We must listen & understand the conversations and how we can trigger them 5
    • We looked to our partners at KellerFay to provide new insights 5+ year partnership with SMG Proven approach to WOM tracking and analysis – Inclusive of both online AND offline International perspective Successful and market-leading insights into the relationships between marketing and brand WOM – E.g. Super Bowl, Olympics, Cross-media studies, etc 6
    • Multiple Data Sources: TalkTrack® TalkTrack® Methodology – TalkTrack® is a diary-based survey program that measures all forms of word of mouth (WOM) – offline + online. – Respondents keep a diary of conversations over a 24-hour period, and then take an online survey where they report on these conversations. TalkTrack® US – A national syndicated program involving 36,000 consumers aged 13 to 69 annually. – The majority of TalkTrack® US results presented in this analysis are derived from interviews collected during November 2009 to October 2010, and during this time a total of 36,622 respondents participated. TalkTrack® Britain – Study was fielded online in May 2010. – A total sample of 2,578 16 to 69 year olds participated in the first wave of this study. TalkTrack® Australia – Study was fielded online in April – May 2010. – A total sample of 2,829 16 to 69 year olds participated in this study. 7
    • Multiple Data Sources:IPA TouchPoints 3  Unique and original survey of 5,400 British adults aged 15+ – Information gathered through individual PDA diaries and self-completion questionnaires.  The findings presented here focus on the diary portion of TP3.  The diary records information on a half hourly basis on the following: – Location of respondent – Who they were with – What they were doing (consuming media, communicating, etc.) – What media they were consuming – Their mood  Research was conducted during September 2009 through February 2010. 8

    • Introducing theMedia Sociability Index™ Which media give advertisers the best access to consumers while they are in a conversational mode? – Based on proximity of media use and conversation. – TouchPoints3 (UK) is data source. The Media Sociability Index™ reveals “highly sociable media.” – This is an index which compares „those consuming media and communicating‟ with the average percentage of people communicating at any given half-hour interval over the course of the day. 18
    • (IPA TouchPoints 3) Conversations Happen More Often at Times When Media are Being Consumed• The baseline Media Sociability Index for conversations is 141 (based on 45% divided by 32%).

    • Conclusions:Opportunities to Trigger WOM Marketing and media play important roles in triggering WOM: – Consumers tell us media “triggers” WOM 20% of the time. – Consumers report both conversing and consuming media during the same day parts. – Consumers report nearly half their conversations contain a reference to content they found in marketing. Conversations often happen close to the times when media are being consumed, providing marketers access to conversations. – Early morning and early evening are especially good times to reach people who are consuming media and socializing. 24
    • Conclusions:Opportunities to Trigger WOM TV & Internet are referenced in the largest volume of conversations, while point of sale & promotions play a key role in CPG WOM. The Internet is possibly the most “sociable” of media, especially at work. – Radio surprisingly effective at reaching people in social context. – Television, especially programming/channels related to children, DIY, or sports, is effective in triggering conversations at home. Positive experiences trigger more WOM than negative. – WOM containing stronger emotions tends to be the most viral. – Positive talk related to product efficacy, such as “works well,” is also more likely to be shared with others. 25
