Bud Light Facebook Strategy

  1. 1. FACEBOOK SOCIAL DESIGN HACK PAGE 4 BEER + FOOTBALL = SOCIAL ACTIVITY An early form of Social Media • Groups of people come together to support their team. Having a beer, singing, creating “The origin of professional friendships or trading insults, and expressing raw football can be traced back and unfiltered emotion throughout a game. to 1892 …” • Geographical rivalries have always existed. My “Beer is one of the world’s town versus your town. My city versus your city oldest prepared beverages, possibly dating back to the etc. Teams and fans traveling to away games early Neolithic or 9500 BC …” bring people from a different part of the world to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ your town, and (most) people welcome them in History_of_American_football with a beer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ • It’s fun. Especially when your team wins. The Beer#History players drink champagne out of the trophy, and fans drink a beer to celebrate with friends. A game of football is a live event, and these events produce many stories and conversations.

They’ve connecting with friends on Facebook, and are ready to strike the first blow. It has game-like characteristics and is fo- cused on content creation and storytelling with friends. How it works • You’ll need a Bud Light to be alongside you in the photo. • We want to follow the game via photos that express the fans emotion. • Browse photos by team or emotion. • Tag your friends. Share. Add comments. Take more photos.

FACEBOOK SOCIAL DESIGN HACK PAGE 12GAME DAY EMOTI - CAM APPLICATIONCAMPAIGN LANDING PAGE (TOP) Landing Page This is the landing page for the idea. ‘Last Weeks games’ allows fans to navigate to prior weeks photos. Countdown clock is ticking down to your teams next game. Simple instructions and features are listed down the page.

  11. 11. FACEBOOK SOCIAL DESIGN HACK PAGE 14GAME DAY EMOTI - CAM APPLICATION‘GAME ON’ PAGE (TOP) ‘GAME ON’ Page (Top) Game details and menu to navigate to other games are the top. Typical scoreboard for a game of football. A feed powers the game clock, scores, time, possession, drive chart and plays. ‘Add a photo’ buttons allows fans to upload photos based on game time and play. A tool to control moderation between a fan submitting a photo and the live page is recommended.
  12. 12. FACEBOOK SOCIAL DESIGN HACK PAGE 15GAME DAY EMOTI - CAM APPLICATION‘GAME ON’ PAGE (BOTTOM) ‘GAME ON’ Page (Bottom) ‘Scrub’ functionality allows fans to scroll through the timeline to see photos for every play (or minute) for the game. The larger photos are streaming in quickly and swapping out every 20 seconds. Once a photo has been shown in the featured area it dynamically migrates down to the lower photo grid. We can add pagination by minute or quarter to control larger quantities of photos. Fans can click the photos to reveal more content. The tabs act as filters to parse through the photos. The idea behind the titles: ‘Crack open a Bud Light’ and ‘Tears in my Beer’ is to categorize the photos in a ‘happy’ or ‘sad’ format.

  18. 18. FACEBOOK SOCIAL DESIGN HACK PAGE 21 CONCEPT: FOOTBALL PREDICTOR It doesn’t get any better than drinking a Bud Light and watching a game. But, there are times when the fun slows down a bit. These times present an opportu- nity for fans to show their competitive instincts, and Bud Light and Facebook can be ‘enablers’ for times like these. This idea offers fans a simple way to challenge each other about their football knowledget. We want it to be really simle, game, and accessible by all. How it works • Predict which team’s going to win the game we’re currently attending or watching (or it can be any game). • Publish your prediction to your News feed. Drink a gulp of Bud Light, and cross your fingers that your prediction is right. • You lost. This mobile app is instructing you to pay up with a Bud Light. Your friends on Facebook await a photo to prove it. You won. Share the glory with your friends on Facebook.

  26. 26. FACEBOOK SOCIAL DESIGN HACK PAGE 29 FANTASY CHAMPS DREAM PRIZE Facebook (specifically Facebook Groups) is already a valuable tool for day-to- day Fantasy Football activity. Many of the ma jor sports sites (NFL, ESPN and Ya- hoo) have also integrated Facebook Connect into their registration flow. The goal of this program is to add an additional layer of ‘fun’ over the day-to- day activity for a typical Fantasy player and team. Bud Light can add some magic to the tools that already exist today. How it works • Many leagues offer (paid) prizing, but they can’t match Bud Lights pursuit of great times and spontaneous fun. Use Facebook to create tools, activities and more conversations around a team’s game, and reach the obsessive players by getting them to create their dream prize.

It’s a very simple integration of Bud Light into Fantasy. We could have a deeper integration into the actual game application on NFL.com. Commissioners enter their team details etc. to align the day-to-day and conversational aspects of the game into a larger Bud Light platform.
