  9. People love when brands “wow” them. Consumer expectation for brand innovation has increased 33% in the last year. BUZZWORTHY VIDEO CONTENT We’re seeing an increasing interest in emotional, longer form content from brands. In fact, the top 10 YouTube ads of 2015 were over approximately 2 minutes long.
  10. OUR TARGET: PROVE THE IMPORTANCE OF BRAND BUILDING TACTICS
  11. INNOVATIVE USES OF TECH DRIVE FAME Identifying platform and user insights can help uncover new ways of activating across different channels. INSIGHT: People watch Facebook video without sound. INNOVATION: Snickers hid “sounds of hunger” in their content. INSIGHT: People tap through content fast on Snapchat. INNOVATION: Lowe’s used the tapping technology to empower DIYers to take on new projects. INSIGHT: People tap back & forth between content on Instagram Stories. INNOVATION: Bacardi turned users into DJs by turning the frames of their story into turntables. Snickers Hungry Singers Lowe’s In a Snap Bacardi Instant DJ
  12. LONG FORM STORYTELLING Long form video formats give brands a great canvas for telling emotional stories that often stand out amongst other advertisements. Ranked on Adweek 10 Best Ads of 2016 Ranked on Google/Webbys Best Ads of the Year

  27. OUR TARGET: EVALUATE HOW TO MAKE UNSKIPPABLE YOUTUBE ADS
  28. 28 Previous research from Google showed that certain creative elements can be tweaked to impact view through rate and recall.* WE USED EXISTING RESEARCH TO IMPACT THE WORK *Source: Google Research, 2015, BBDO & YouTube working to solidify these creative guidelines in 2017 Branding in first 5 seconds Audio brand mention Branding in-situ (on product or in background) Music not used in first 5 seconds Utilize animation and text Include calls to action

THE MOST EFFECTIVE ELEMENTS IN THE TEST *Source: Google + BBDO Research, 2015 Included branding in first 5 seconds Included an audio brand mention Did not include a logo slaps (seen in-situ) Did not include music in first 5 seconds Utilized animation and text Included calls to action 1ST PLACE 2ND PLACE 3RD PLACE
  31. 31 FOCUSING IN ON LENSES
  32. *Source: Snapchat Internal Data In 2016, Snapchatters watched over 10 billion videos per day. Sponsored lenses allow users to manipulate their face and/or environment in some way. Users are spending upwards of 20 seconds with them. Lenses provide brands with a true unprecedented video opportunity for engagement. SNAPCHAT BRANDED LENSES
  33. OUR TARGET: EVALUATE HOW TO INCREASE USAGE OF SNAPCHAT LENSES
  34. DIFFERENT APPROACHES FOR DIFFERENT LENSES Various creative approaches helped expose the elements that lead to a successful execution: Face Alteration: Significantly manipulated the user’s face Aligned to Larger Campaign: Supported other consumer facing communications Time Relevant: Live on Halloween Innovative Use of Tech: First to flip head upside down Altered User’s Environment: Changed the surroundings in addition to the face Altered Voice: Changed the voice of the user
  35. 35 Leverage Interactive Features Voice changers & “Try With a Friend” increases usage State Features Clearly Ensure viewers know what features are included in the lens with clear copy Focus on The Face Concept ideas that alter someone’s face rather than their environment Lengthen Animation Maximize time spent with the filter by taking advantage of the full 10 second animation Relevant Date Strategize a date that makes sense for the lens concept to increase usage Brand Authenticity Ensure the concept aligns to the brand and doesn’t feel like a force-fit Include Interactivity Optimize for Time Spent Context is Key WHAT WE LEARNED
  36. MONTH 00 2016 36 36 FAST FORWARD: VIDEO PRACTICES TO CONSIDER FOR 2017
  37. 37 First few seconds Design the leading content to draw in the viewer across feed-based environments like Facebook and opt-in environments like YouTube TrueView Don’t sit on Snapchat Leverage their new advertising offerings while consumers are still highly receptive to them Do something different Think about how to use popular platforms in a way that no one has before.
