About Me Follow me here: twitter.com/phryl burningthebacon.com linkedin.com/in/phryl slideshare.net/phryl Phil Barrett (.mobi) VP Digital & Mobile CMA Digital Council Mobile Evangelist 360 Marketer BSTREET Communications  Toronto & London, UK ‏
Speaks to your most valuable consumers Travels across all marketing disciplines Optimizes your marketing spend Drives equity, sales and market share SmartIdeas TM BSTREET is a marketing communications agency dedicated to creating for your brand.
 
About Polar Ice Vodka Like the live music scene in the East, the cosmopolitan cocktail scene in the West, and the “gotta be seen” dance clubs in our downtown cores, Polar Ice® is a true contemporary Canadian vodka.  Quadruple distilled and triple filtered for a legendary clean, smooth taste, Polar Ice® is the largest selling Canadian vodka brand Bronze Medal Winner - the Beverage Testing Institute 2008 Double Gold Medal Winner - the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2003
Background BSTREET hired to redevelop visual identity system for the brand in 2008 Targeting 19-25 “funseekers” Vis had to live across retail, trade, print and online No existing website or online presence
Our Digital Task Establish online consumer position as a brand site / bring to life the PIV identity system that can also support ongoing promotions Extend online experience to other social media tools in order to engage fun seekers Incorporate unique position as Canadian vodka with specific content to differentiate from other vodka sites Create an experience that will create word of mouth (WOM) buzz
 
Finding the right Digital Mix
BSTREET Media Mix Philosophy  (from last year)
 
Twitter – Content Plan Weekly content schedule that focused on lifestyle not just product Content was pre-loaded weeks in advanced & auto-published using free twitter tools #musicmonday #martinimonday #filmreviewfriday #WhatEverHappenedTo Featured drink recipes Misc quotes, questions, and statements that resonate with the fu seeker
 
Extending to facebook Launched facebook fan page at the same time as the PIV website (as opposed to creating a group or Application) Site became extension of website & incorporated many of the same design elements Strong call to action back to the website Product & recipe content also lives on the fan page Overall – the facebook experience needs to be relevant, timely, and aligned with other channels
 
 
Other Vodkas on Facebook 637 fans 2,952 fans 897 fans
Social Media Summary Both channels are proving to be effective in reaching our target demographic in the channel of their choice WOM is helping with acceleration of fans Small investment in social ads resulted in huge exposure for brand on facebook
Website Our assignment? Create a brand site that goes beyond what the category has done traditionally by integrating social media extensions into the website experience
Our Inspiration
Lessons learned from Skittles Over 2000% increase in traffic in one week  Massive social media buzz & word of mouth – although much of it was not positive Although bold & successful in many ways, they lost  ALL  control of the brand They didn’t really engage / join the conversation… so didn’t follow the true spirit of social media
More Inspiration
The Smart Idea: Syndication vs Stickiness Go beyond a traditional “flash” only brand / promotional website Create an EXPERIENCE that will interest fun seekers and…  Engage them in ways they are already familiar with in social media Overall – create content and experience that will syndicate across multiple channels
Make the PIV Experience Social The socialscape created for the PIV website will “echo” tweets from the twitterverse Pre-filtered / formatted tweets with common words (brand attributes, fun seeker attributes) will appear to echo from the landscape and in real-time User can input their own words Link to PIV twitter page This allows us to leverage user generated content and social media while maintaining control of the brand Content can be seeded Content can come from a specific event to correspond with on trade activities Users can enter their own words to change stream
Other features User can change / choose from ~5 different socialscapes that are specific to regions of Canada Fun seeker can change the music loop that starts playing when they land on the website  Incorporated sharing widgets & easy links to facebook and twitter channels
 
LIVE DEMO
Other results
 
Key Insights Content is king – allocate more to content than programming & design Experience that syndicates allows us to engage the target market in the channel of their choice Employing our 70 / 20 / 10 digital marketing mix enabled innovation while still delivering a platform that met objectives The “echo” tool resonated with everybody – but was too much of an Easter egg Facebook was the most cost effective channel and had the most engagement

  • 15. Extending to facebook Launched facebook fan page at the same time as the PIV website (as opposed to creating a group or Application) Site became extension of website & incorporated many of the same design elements Strong call to action back to the website Product & recipe content also lives on the fan page Overall – the facebook experience needs to be relevant, timely, and aligned with other channels

  • 19. Social Media Summary Both channels are proving to be effective in reaching our target demographic in the channel of their choice WOM is helping with acceleration of fans Small investment in social ads resulted in huge exposure for brand on facebook
  • 20. Website Our assignment? Create a brand site that goes beyond what the category has done traditionally by integrating social media extensions into the website experience
  • 22. Lessons learned from Skittles Over 2000% increase in traffic in one week Massive social media buzz & word of mouth – although much of it was not positive Although bold & successful in many ways, they lost ALL control of the brand They didn’t really engage / join the conversation… so didn’t follow the true spirit of social media
  • 24. The Smart Idea: Syndication vs Stickiness Go beyond a traditional “flash” only brand / promotional website Create an EXPERIENCE that will interest fun seekers and… Engage them in ways they are already familiar with in social media Overall – create content and experience that will syndicate across multiple channels
  • 25. Make the PIV Experience Social The socialscape created for the PIV website will “echo” tweets from the twitterverse Pre-filtered / formatted tweets with common words (brand attributes, fun seeker attributes) will appear to echo from the landscape and in real-time User can input their own words Link to PIV twitter page This allows us to leverage user generated content and social media while maintaining control of the brand Content can be seeded Content can come from a specific event to correspond with on trade activities Users can enter their own words to change stream
  • 26. Other features User can change / choose from ~5 different socialscapes that are specific to regions of Canada Fun seeker can change the music loop that starts playing when they land on the website Incorporated sharing widgets & easy links to facebook and twitter channels

  • 31. Key Insights Content is king – allocate more to content than programming & design Experience that syndicates allows us to engage the target market in the channel of their choice Employing our 70 / 20 / 10 digital marketing mix enabled innovation while still delivering a platform that met objectives The “echo” tool resonated with everybody – but was too much of an Easter egg Facebook was the most cost effective channel and had the most engagement

  5. Inspired by the boldness of the Skittles launch last year, but we didn’t want to lose control of the brand like they did and we wanted to make the experience two-way so that we could maintain buzz beyond the initial PR of the launch. 
  6. Also inspired by the interactivity of twistori that allows you to change tweet stream by clicking on keywords
  7. First true integration of tweet stream into brand website User controlled content Built-in intelligence to ensure brand retained control Generated buzz & PR over innovative approach
