How to deliver meaningful content through brand experiences

How to deliver meaningful content through brand experiences

To deliver meaningful content, we must be authentic.

This gives brands a credible reason to deliver their message in an authentic way through things people care about.

Content is increasingly being used as a brand experience tool not just an output.

Why?

Because consumers connect with brands through stories and the best stories are the ones we experience for ourselves.

ignitions Austin Bryan and Randi Conner shared their stories at Event Tech the industrys fastest-growing conference that showcases the latest technologies and biggest case studies.

Heres what they shared:

LIVE-STREAMING EVENTS: INSIDE COKES E-SPORTS PLAYBOOK

ONE-FOURTH OF ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD ARE GAMERS

OUT OF THOSE GAMERS, 70 MILLION PLAY LEAGUE OF LEGENDS.

So we leveraged this global phenomenon to create social occasions for gamers to celebrate their shared passion.

Utilizing in-cinema live streaming technology, we brought League of Legends fans a one-of-a-kind viewing experience

Giving fans the power to select where the events would be held.

And leveraging social media to promote the viewing parties which sold out in days.

We partnered with THE DIGITAL CINEMA DISTRIBUTION COALITION to stream League of Legends competitions to millions of fans across the world.

To amplify those events, we created cheer boards, a branded selfie wall and exclusive souvenir cups.

Results:

50 million fans reached through camera feeds

Two million social media impressions

24% increase in average concession sales

100% favorable sentiment on social media

We found success is not about the technology its about bringing the gaming world to life, offline.

Which is why we provided a space to create camaraderie celebrating the game and its fans.

Best Practices:

Find the right content partner

Leverage your partners reach

Test things out

Start small and scale up

Content Case Study: Coke Zeros Real-time Fan Film

We used a mutual love for the NCAA March Madness games to unite rival fans.

The fun part?

We captured the entire experience on film.

Our first-ever TV spot aired just before the tipoff of the Championship Game inspiring millions of viewers to be #OpenToTry.

Key Learnings:

Live capture is real capture

Flexibility is key to remaining authentic and relevant

Developing the right team that can make decisions fast is crucial

In summary

Be authentic.Consumers demand thoughtful and meaningful content. They want to create their own experience instead of being invited to experience.

Be relevant.Do your research and understand what your consumers want.

Relevancy + Authenticity = Meaningfulness
