Beyond measuring buzz: Drawing deeper insights through social media research
Krista Cornellis and Simon McDonald, Warc Exclusive, Next Generation Research, January 2013
This presentation addresses how brands can build research communities through social media. It looks at what works and what doesn’t, and provides case studies into how social media communities are currently being used to move beyond buzz towards deeper insights for brands, products and communication.

It looks at what works and what doesn’t, and provides case studies into how social media communities are currently being used to move beyond buzz towards deeper insights for brands, products and communication. Future opportunities for realising social media's full potential for customer understanding are looked into, including uses of the image-sharing website, Pinterest.

Zeebox is an app, a website and a platform for those that want a richer social TV experience. The app had around 1.5 million downloads and over 300,000 monthly UK users in September.
Zeebox is an app, a website and a platform for those that want a richer social TV experience. The app had around 1.5 million downloads and over 300,000 monthly UK users in September. Zeebox works on a second screen while the user watches TV. Its technology allow user to see what friends are watching, look up more information, buy products that they see and chat about shows either on Twitter, with Zeebox-designed hashtags called zeetags or in private chats. The opportunities for marketers are broad, from synchronising with ads and driving users to Amazon, sponsoring zeetags and making them interactive and developing their own apps.
From the editor: Smart TV's disconnect
Colin Grimshaw, Admap, July/August 2012, pp. 3-3
The new breed of 'Smart TVs' may well have home screens that look like an iPhone, but they lack the smartphone's touchscreen ease of use.
The new breed of 'Smart TVs' may well have home screens that look like an iPhone, but they lack the smartphone's touchscreen ease of use. Despite their connectivity, they are unlikely to appeal to those wanting to multi-task while watching TV. Multi-tasking is personal behaviour and only really works where the screen is being viewed by a solitary person. This is where the smart tablet comes into its own. They are small enough to rest easily on laps but with screens large enough for secondary viewing, social media-ing, web surfing etc. Tablets or laptops is where the new ad opportunities lie. This month's Focus examines some of the opportunities offered by the lucrative second screen.
Connected TV: The lucrative second screen
Jeremy Pounder, Admap, July/August 2012, pp. 24-26
Connectivity creates the opportunity for TVs to take on some of the capabilities of the PC. But what do people actually want to use connected TVs for? Mindshare's work with its online research community, the Hive, has shown that the fundamental role of TV is likely to remain the same.
Connectivity creates the opportunity for TVs to take on some of the capabilities of the PC. But what do people actually want to use connected TVs for? Mindshare's work with its online research community, the Hive, has shown that the fundamental role of TV is likely to remain the same. Connected behaviours sit more naturally on the second screen - a tablet/iPad, smartphone or laptop - where they do not interrupt TV viewing. Around 40% of people in broadband homes are now using second screens while watching TV at least once per week. Opportunities can be separated into five categories: on-demand video content, content sharing, transactions, social interaction and companion content. There are several obstacles to addressable advertising (advertising delivered to specific households) becoming a reality, while the second screen is platform agnostic and used independently of the TV and opens up commercial opportunities in programming itself.

Interactive television (iTV) promises greater consumer engagement and enhanced brand perception. Recent developments are expanding its reach and making it easier for brand marketers to track performance in ways that matter.
Interactive television (iTV) promises greater consumer engagement and enhanced brand perception. Recent developments are expanding its reach and making it easier for brand marketers to track performance in ways that matter. During 2011, 75% of US TV households exposed to some type of iTV advertising. With almost 40% of households now with DVRs, the value of traditional commercial buys is decreasing and the ability to measure iTV marketing results grows in importance. Kimberly-Clark, GlaxoSmithKline, Honda and State Farm explain their reasons for taking part in iTV experiments and their findings.

Lowdown: Connected TV
Chris Jefford, Admap, October 2011, pp. 8-8
The Age of Connected TV is dawning and with it some new opportunities for advertisers in a world that is bridging the gap between traditional TV viewing and the world of content-on-demand offered by the internet.
The Age of Connected TV is dawning and with it some new opportunities for advertisers in a world that is bridging the gap between traditional TV viewing and the world of content-on-demand offered by the internet. Connected TV will give marketers an insight into the lives, behaviours and preferences of customers within their most natural of habitats - their living room. This, in turn, will offer the opportunity to deliver targeted bespoke advertising and content, such as banner creative within programme guides and new platforms beyond apps.
Context effects of TV programme-induced interactivity and telepresence on advertising responses
Verolien Cauberghe, Maggie Geuens and Patrick De Pelsmacker, International Journal of Advertising, Vol. 30, No. 4, 2011, pp. 641-663
This study investigates the context effects of TV programme embedded interactivity on the attitude toward an advertisement placed within the interactive programme.
This study investigates the context effects of TV programme embedded interactivity on the attitude toward an advertisement placed within the interactive programme. In the 2 (two way communication) × 3 (user control) experimental study, 246 respondents participated. The results show that the impact of actual interactivity on attitude toward the advertisement is mediated by perceived interactivity. Subsequently, telepresence (the feeling of being present in the mediated environment) has a crucial mediating role to explain the context effect of perceived interactivity on attitude toward the advertisement. With regard to the underlying mechanism, the results show that telepresence is positively correlated with the amount of positive programme thoughts. In addition, the positive programme thoughts have a positive effect on the attitude toward the ad, above and beyond the effect of positive thoughts about the advertisement.
Adoption Intentions Toward Interactive Digital Television Among Advertising Professionals
Verolien Cauberghe and Patrick De Pelsmacker, The Journal of Interactive Advertising, Vol. 11, Issue 2, Spring 2011, pp. 45-59
Using the decomposed theory of planned behavior, this article develops and empirically validates a model that predicts the intention to use interactive digital television as a marketing communication medium.
Using the decomposed theory of planned behavior, this article develops and empirically validates a model that predicts the intention to use interactive digital television as a marketing communication medium. The study tests the model with samples of Belgian advertising professionals at two different moments in time. The results show that the impact of perceived usefulness on the intention to use interactive digital television is low compared with the impact of perceived ease of use and subjective norms. Over time, the compliance effect of external subjective norms on usage intention decreases, in favor of the internalization effect through perceived ease of use. Behavioral control and attitude have more impact in the second stage than in the first.
Integrated Planning: Cloud thinking
Sue Elms, Admap, April 2011, pp. 10-12
Consumers do not make decisions in a linear way. They are influenced by the cloud of noise around them at different times of the day.
Consumers do not make decisions in a linear way. They are influenced by the cloud of noise around them at different times of the day. The idea of a 'Cloud' is a better metaphor for the complex infrastructure of future communications, capturing how things work from a human perspective. It is, after all, ordinary people who are the true integrators of brands' marketing efforts. Cloud thinking helps us to more easily embrace the complexity of the coming communications world. It encourages more intelligent planning within and across disciplines. This will reduce waste and increasing the sustainability of marketing.
