Overall ObjectivesIn 2011 Yahoo! focused on growing an engaged base on Facebook.As we move into 2012 we are focused on taking this strong base andmore deeply engaging them.Program Objectives More social: Connect with socially active movie fans Grow: Increase the Yahoo! Movies Facebook fan base Reinforce: Yahoo! Movies is the premiere online movie destination

Movies as their go to for movie-making decisions
Our Approach: It All Starts on Yahoo!Take advantage of the 24MM engaged users that visit Yahoo!Movies each month and exclusive studio assets.
Our Approach: Amplify, Engage and Grow on SocialConnect with a relevant movie-going audience with a compelling andinherently sharable offering and reason to keep coming back after thepromotion. Focus mainly on Facebook.

What Worked Well Tied to an event: Tapping into the excitement of the Summer Movie going season, with great offer and assets from studios to engage our target audience -when they were making decision of what movies to see (online) and when they were in theatre (offline) Partnership with Regal Cinemas to adapt as the program did. Agency partnership allowed for real-time optimization Flexibility to adapt program after launch Offer was relevant, compelling and highly sharable
Challenges Faced During Program Development Limitations with standard mobile Facebook application Doesn’t allow for co-branded check-in wall posts No ability to track deal exposure Limited to smartphones National chain partner coordination Staff training of part-time, minimum wage employees In theatre placement Limited ability to optimize in-theatre placements post-launchFirst mobile/digital promotion. Consumer reaction Initial confusion over mobile site flow Those without smartphones the “loudest” in social media Challenges of mobile coverage. Training staff on a new approach to coupon redemption Managing Expectations “Never been done” premise made it difficult to anticipate and plan for expected participation, redemption numbers, etc.
