EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Zuru is a disruptive and award-winning company that designs, manufactures
and markets innovative toys such as Mini Brands.
This presentation initially entails research on the social media platforms:
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and YouTube. Subsequently, our team
dives further into the digital marketing strategy to widely increase the Mini
Brands brand awareness especially among young males who are not currently
in a strong segment of the products. Our target is to set forth a heavy-ups
campaign for holiday 2020 to conquest optimization to customers shopping
experience with Mini Brands that will help dynamics of the Zuru’s seasonal
sales as an agent, Team Six Ad Co.
The emerging customer experience with TikTok serves as one of our
strategic groundworks. The combination of our search marketing ads and the
wide exposure in mobile apps that appeal to Gen-Z will have the products
remain in the competitive toy market while further developing new segments
going forward.
MINI BRANDS
One of the hottest toys right now is a plastic capsule called 5 Surprise Mini Brands.
Children buy it for anywhere between $5 and $15 and peel it apart to reveal five tiny
replicas of branded supermarket products from corporate conglomerates such as
Unilever, Hormel and Kikkoman.
In 2019, Mini Brands listed the most searched products in eight
categories: tech, kitchen gear, toys and games, accessories and
apparel, gaming, sports and fitness, home goods and personal
care.
It is said that there are over 500 possible items currently
produced for the Mini Brands capsule with new surprises added
every four to six months. In turn, this sustains consumers who
are continuously exploring.
The target demographic market includes a wide range of consumers, from children
around the age of 4, and up to the young adult demographic. The younger children,
especially girls, love to include these miniaturized versions of household items in their
tea parties and other role playing activities. For others, the fun is in collecting the
growing selection of mini toys.
The typical consumer of 5 Surprise Mini Brands can be found on YouTube or TikTok,
two platforms which helped catapult the brand into stardom. Some of the most popular
videos on YouTube that feature unboxing have amassed more than 3 million views per
video, demonstrating just how popular these toys have become. Likewise, there are just
as many clips on TikTok featuring Mini Brands in various skits and reviews.

SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS
According to the Global Digital 2019 report, Facebook and Instagram have the largest numbers of
potential reach of advertising. These facts are crucial in the process of making decisions of which
social networks to choose for a social media marketing campaign.
SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS
In the picture above we can see the four most popular platforms in terms of potential reach of
advertising among teenagers, ages 13-17.
Since most of the platforms have a requirement for the user to be at least 13 years old, the data on
usage and potential reach of advertising amongst consumers younger than 13 years old is missing. We
use an assumption that ratio would be the same as the above graphic.
Since our largest target
segment are kids and
teenagers, the decision
on which social media
platform to choose
should be based on
more specific data.
SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS
Furthermore, the number of monthly active users is a very important indicator to determine
whether to advertise on certain social media platforms. As we can see, Facebook, YouTube and
Instagram are the leaders. Thus, advertising through those platforms will likely expose our
campaign to more people.
WHERE WE EXAMINED THE CONSUMER AWARENESS: YouTube is a video-
sharing platform which was launched at 2005. In 2020, it is the second most visited website in
the world. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment
on videos and subscribe to other users. The total number of people who use YouTube amounts
to 1.3 billion people.
• About 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute!
• Almost 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube every single day.
• YouTube gets over 30 million visitors per day.
• Videos with Zuru toy reviews and unboxing the Mini Brands product have obtained millions
of views with the largest count of views on a video being more than 66 million.
This is where we obtained the most information from. When the keyword, “mini brands” is
entered on YouTube, the result returns with 20.3 million results. Many videos populated of Mini
Brands buyers posting videos of their unboxing experience.
SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS: YouTube
WHERE WE MEASURED THE DIGITAL PRESENCE: Facebook is one of the largest
social networking platforms around the world. Founded in 2004, Facebook’s mission is to give
people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. People use Facebook

SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS: Facebook
WHERE WE EXPLORED NEW SURPRISE ITEMS: Instagram is an online photo-sharing
application and social network platform that was acquired by Facebook in 2012. Users can add a
caption to each of their posts and use hashtags and location-based geotags to index these posts
and make them searchable by other users within the app. As with other social networking
platforms, Instagram users can like, comment on and bookmark posts. Photos can be shared on
one or several other social media sites with a single click.

WHERE WE WITNESSED HOW KIDS ACTUALLY RESPOND: TikTok is one of the
fastest growing social media platforms in the world which presents an alternative version of online
video-sharing. TikTok allows users to create short videos with music, filters, amongst several other
features. It was initially launched in China as the brand “Douyin” in September of 2016.

ENGAGEMENT
As we discovered the impact of each social networking site in the previous “Social Media
Platform” section, Team Six Ad Co. decided to utilize the platforms; Facebook, Instagram,
TikTok and Twitter to engage our target segments by changing content for each purpose.
Facebook: Adults with children
Team Six Ad Co.: https://www.facebook.com/Team-Six-Ad-Co-112779077100783/
Instagram: Older children (13 - 18 years old)
@team_six_ad_co: https://www.instagram.com/team_six_ad_co/
TikTok: Children (8 - 18 years old)
@team_six_ad_co: https://www.tiktok.com/@team_six_ad_co
Twitter: Older children to adults (13 years old and over)
@TeamSixAdCo1: https://twitter.com/TeamSixAdCo1
ENGAGEMENT: Facebook Posts
We posted 10 YouTube videos and reposted 3 public posts by families with Mini Brands, along with
our comments. Ms. Shirley Wood from Savannah, GA reacted immediately and liked the page, and
also noticed our forgery ad. Her engagement made exposure within the Facebook algorithm.
ENGAGEMENT: Twitter
Unfortunately, Twitter posts do not allow us to
share visually appealing contents from outside
social media. While the impressions are a little
higher than Facebook’s similar post, the
engagements did not reach higher in volume.
ENGAGEMENT: TikTok
Video link >>> https://drive.google.com/file/d/163GQDY158RdzkG5eSu4ihVKsycA6IpBg/view?usp=sharing
For the Mini Brands for Holiday 2020 campaign, Team Six Ad Co.
created a Black Friday advertisement on TikTok. As a result, we found
that the TikTok platform generated the most impressions of all social
media platforms that we examined. This video on the left gained 605
impressions and 7 engagements in less than 6 hours.
While the page engagements are
36 for 6 total posts, similar to
other platforms, the average
plays of the 6 posts returned as
442 views which we found quite
impressive.
This high impression rate totally
relies on TikTok’s platform
integration made to drive high
user engagement (ease of use).
ENGAGEMENT: Instagram
We created a business account and posted some pictures of
Mini Brands products and auto-reposted videos from
TikTok. The most likes for one post we received were 3
while the impression was 7. On TikTok, the same video on
received 12 likes and 379 impressions. There is a significant
difference in responses, and some of the functions are not
working properly it seems.
Additionally, we followed
several influencers within
the toy industry. As the
time inches closer to
holiday season, we can
expect to observe the
influencers’ reactions to
Mini Brands.
RECOMMENDATIONS
After carefully reviewing social media platforms and search engine keyword results, one of our
social media followers shared her thoughts as a mother. She stated that while parents can’t take
their children to the grocery stores due to the pandemic, children are more inclined to explore
new surprises in this mystery ball. Team Six Ad Co. is confident that the campaign, Mini Brands
for Holiday 2020 will continuously satisfy Zuru’s brand recognition goal introduced by this
trend as well.
Our recommendation to optimize Mini Brands’ presence in the competitive market can be
broken down below:
1. Increase display advertising across highly targeted sites for brand awareness:
- Frequently review the used/unused factors for best practices:
- e.g. after Black Friday sale, switch the displays immediately
- Experiment with A/B testing:
- Even though we targeted the young male demographic, our choice of the standard
platform may be biased.
RECOMMENDATIONS (cont’d)
2. Make significant SEO improvements for findability
- Long-tail keywords are recommended as there is heavy competition.
- Find relevance each time a new campaign is launched.
3. Develop a content strategy for informativity
- Social media chooses which content the audience access.
- e.g. engage families on Facebook, post family event information and repost
families experience with Mini Brands for further exposure to other families.
- Keep posting TikTok videos once or twice a day to increase the chance of being
featured on the “For You Page (FYP)”
- Keep an eye out for the emerging social media trends and new platforms to get
familiarized in the early stages of development.

  • 2. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Zuru is a disruptive and award-winning company that designs, manufactures and markets innovative toys such as Mini Brands. This presentation initially entails research on the social media platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and YouTube. Subsequently, our team dives further into the digital marketing strategy to widely increase the Mini Brands brand awareness especially among young males who are not currently in a strong segment of the products. Our target is to set forth a heavy-ups campaign for holiday 2020 to conquest optimization to customers shopping experience with Mini Brands that will help dynamics of the Zuru’s seasonal sales as an agent, Team Six Ad Co. The emerging customer experience with TikTok serves as one of our strategic groundworks. The combination of our search marketing ads and the wide exposure in mobile apps that appeal to Gen-Z will have the products remain in the competitive toy market while further developing new segments going forward.
  • 3. MINI BRANDS One of the hottest toys right now is a plastic capsule called 5 Surprise Mini Brands. Children buy it for anywhere between $5 and $15 and peel it apart to reveal five tiny replicas of branded supermarket products from corporate conglomerates such as Unilever, Hormel and Kikkoman. In 2019, Mini Brands listed the most searched products in eight categories: tech, kitchen gear, toys and games, accessories and apparel, gaming, sports and fitness, home goods and personal care. It is said that there are over 500 possible items currently produced for the Mini Brands capsule with new surprises added every four to six months. In turn, this sustains consumers who are continuously exploring.
  • 4. The target demographic market includes a wide range of consumers, from children around the age of 4, and up to the young adult demographic. The younger children, especially girls, love to include these miniaturized versions of household items in their tea parties and other role playing activities. For others, the fun is in collecting the growing selection of mini toys. The typical consumer of 5 Surprise Mini Brands can be found on YouTube or TikTok, two platforms which helped catapult the brand into stardom. Some of the most popular videos on YouTube that feature unboxing have amassed more than 3 million views per video, demonstrating just how popular these toys have become. Likewise, there are just as many clips on TikTok featuring Mini Brands in various skits and reviews. CONSUMER ATTRIBUTES

  • 7. SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS According to the Global Digital 2019 report, Facebook and Instagram have the largest numbers of potential reach of advertising. These facts are crucial in the process of making decisions of which social networks to choose for a social media marketing campaign.
  • 8. SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS In the picture above we can see the four most popular platforms in terms of potential reach of advertising among teenagers, ages 13-17. Since most of the platforms have a requirement for the user to be at least 13 years old, the data on usage and potential reach of advertising amongst consumers younger than 13 years old is missing. We use an assumption that ratio would be the same as the above graphic. Since our largest target segment are kids and teenagers, the decision on which social media platform to choose should be based on more specific data.
  • 9. SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS Furthermore, the number of monthly active users is a very important indicator to determine whether to advertise on certain social media platforms. As we can see, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram are the leaders. Thus, advertising through those platforms will likely expose our campaign to more people.

  • 21. ENGAGEMENT As we discovered the impact of each social networking site in the previous “Social Media Platform” section, Team Six Ad Co. decided to utilize the platforms; Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter to engage our target segments by changing content for each purpose. Facebook: Adults with children Team Six Ad Co.: https://www.facebook.com/Team-Six-Ad-Co-112779077100783/ Instagram: Older children (13 - 18 years old) @team_six_ad_co: https://www.instagram.com/team_six_ad_co/ TikTok: Children (8 - 18 years old) @team_six_ad_co: https://www.tiktok.com/@team_six_ad_co Twitter: Older children to adults (13 years old and over) @TeamSixAdCo1: https://twitter.com/TeamSixAdCo1
  • 22. ENGAGEMENT: Facebook Posts We posted 10 YouTube videos and reposted 3 public posts by families with Mini Brands, along with our comments. Ms. Shirley Wood from Savannah, GA reacted immediately and liked the page, and also noticed our forgery ad. Her engagement made exposure within the Facebook algorithm.
  • 23. ENGAGEMENT: Twitter Unfortunately, Twitter posts do not allow us to share visually appealing contents from outside social media. While the impressions are a little higher than Facebook’s similar post, the engagements did not reach higher in volume.
  • 24. ENGAGEMENT: TikTok Video link >>> https://drive.google.com/file/d/163GQDY158RdzkG5eSu4ihVKsycA6IpBg/view?usp=sharing For the Mini Brands for Holiday 2020 campaign, Team Six Ad Co. created a Black Friday advertisement on TikTok. As a result, we found that the TikTok platform generated the most impressions of all social media platforms that we examined. This video on the left gained 605 impressions and 7 engagements in less than 6 hours. While the page engagements are 36 for 6 total posts, similar to other platforms, the average plays of the 6 posts returned as 442 views which we found quite impressive. This high impression rate totally relies on TikTok’s platform integration made to drive high user engagement (ease of use).
  • 25. ENGAGEMENT: Instagram We created a business account and posted some pictures of Mini Brands products and auto-reposted videos from TikTok. The most likes for one post we received were 3 while the impression was 7. On TikTok, the same video on received 12 likes and 379 impressions. There is a significant difference in responses, and some of the functions are not working properly it seems. Additionally, we followed several influencers within the toy industry. As the time inches closer to holiday season, we can expect to observe the influencers’ reactions to Mini Brands.
  • 26. RECOMMENDATIONS After carefully reviewing social media platforms and search engine keyword results, one of our social media followers shared her thoughts as a mother. She stated that while parents can’t take their children to the grocery stores due to the pandemic, children are more inclined to explore new surprises in this mystery ball. Team Six Ad Co. is confident that the campaign, Mini Brands for Holiday 2020 will continuously satisfy Zuru’s brand recognition goal introduced by this trend as well. Our recommendation to optimize Mini Brands’ presence in the competitive market can be broken down below: 1. Increase display advertising across highly targeted sites for brand awareness: - Frequently review the used/unused factors for best practices: - e.g. after Black Friday sale, switch the displays immediately - Experiment with A/B testing: - Even though we targeted the young male demographic, our choice of the standard platform may be biased.
  • 27. RECOMMENDATIONS (cont’d) 2. Make significant SEO improvements for findability - Long-tail keywords are recommended as there is heavy competition. - Find relevance each time a new campaign is launched. 3.
