    23. 23. FEDERATED MEDIA CASE STUDY Dell SMB 2011 Goal Promote small businesses’ association of “virtualization” and advanced technologies with Dell. Solution • Because the theme of “virtualization” is something FM’s tech authors inherently cover, Dell surrounded pre-existing FM content on virtualization with rich media video units. • FM content along with Dell whitepapers was syndicated through a Conversationalist unit, distributed across a list of relevant SMB sites. Success • FM’s SMB audience interacted with the Conversationalist unit at a high rate, beating industry averages by 219%. • The Conversationalist also generated over 1500 Dell whitepaper downloads. • Roadblocked media from Conversationalist clickthroughs accounted for an additional ~67k impressions of earned media.

    28. 28. PROJECTING THE VALUE OF EARNED MEDIA Suppose you produce 400 pieces of content over the course of a few months, and each is seen 2,000 times. That’s 800,000 views. PAID MEDIA CAMPAIGN Target number of views 800,000 Standard click-through rate in the industry 0.08% Number of ad impressions needed to generate 1,000,000,000 that many actions at that rate Cost of that many ad impressions if purchased at $8,000,000 a CPM of $8 When you own the content and balance paid media (advertising) with earned media (social sharing, search, etc.), it’s far more efficient.Federated Media Publishing Confidential and Proprietary 28
