How Budweiser, Coca-Cola, and Esurance Won Super Bowl XLVIII

budweiser-super-bowl-2014-teaser-zipper-ft-arnold-schwarzenegger-large-5While the social conversation surrounding the Super Bowl was largely about the game itself  (despite a historic blowout ), viewers were most excited about Bruno Mars’s halftime performance and the commercials between the action. Below are three unique ways that agencies and analytics platform companies measured last night’s conversation.

Poptip, a platform that analyzes and synthesizes social conversation in real-time, measured the conversation about commercials by ‘tweets per minute,’ or, TPM*. The company found that four out of the top five brands who received the most pre-game mentions released their commercials before game day. A 30-second spot cost advertisers $4 million this year, but this did not hold Budweiser or Doritos back from running multiple ads.

Still, only four out of ten brands with the highest average TPM ran more than one commercial. Of one-commercial brands, Esurance was the clear winner: Esurance and their #EsuranceSave30 cash giveaway beat out all other advertisers for the highest sustained conversation volume in terms of average TPM.

Tracking the virality of Super Bowl commercials with iSpot.tv

logo-ispot-lrAt the beginning of January we wrote about new technology from iSpot.tv that makes it easier for media buyers, brands, and agencies to correlate digital activity to linear TV advertising spend. The technology enables these stakeholders to measure the social impact of ads airing at a particular time and on a particular network.

It is all about football on Super Bowl Sunday, but February 2 is also the ‘Super Bowl of advertising.’ Capitalizing on this, iSpot.tv has created a Super Bowl Data Center, which allows consumers to watch the top commercials and pre-releases. The Data Center also ranks the commercials according to its ‘SpotShare,’ which is determined based on a commercial’s online views and social actions taken. Leading the way so far is Axe’s ‘Make Love, Not War’ commercial, which has a 21.92% SpotShare (3.4 million online views and 81,460 social actions to date). Read more

The four must-download apps for this year’s NCAA March Madness

On Lost Remote, we have continued to document the way that sports dominates the social TV space. Whereas more and more people watch scripted television on their own time, there is still no good alternative for live sporting events. This results in highly concentrated and powerful social activity. By definition, sports is a social activity, and it is no surprise that a recent KT Tape report shows that 83% of sports fans check social media during games. The second screen’s role in sports becomes obvious. Read more
