Images Connect Brands to the Red Carpet

red carpet

The 86th Academy Awards on Sunday will feature big-name advertisers seeking to associate with the glitz and glamour of the red carpet. Pepsi, GM, JC Penny and American Express are just a few of the brands that will pay up to $1.9 million per 30-second spot to reach the approximately 40 million viewers who tune in to the program on ABC.

We’re pleased to report that all of GumGum’s 2014 Oscar-targeted in-image advertising inventory has sold out! As movie fans read about the nominated films and peruse celebrity photos across sites like The Hollywood Reporter, Hollywood.com, OK Magazine and Wetpaint, the in-image campaigns of those enterprising brands will capture the attention of entertainment fans and create a unique brand association with Oscar like no other form of advertising can.

No longer does a brand’s sponsorship need to remain limited to a fixed broadcast window on the single night of an awards telecast. From the moment morning nominations are announced to when the after parties are over, millions of photos are generated as a result of Oscar, and create a valuable advertising opportunity through the use of in-image advertising.

Brands with limited budgets can use in-image advertising as a proxy for sponsorship of all kinds, most notably televised sporting events and award programs. Those that are television sponsors have used in-image ads to extend their broadcast buy, creating deeper engagement as fans pour over and share images in the days preceding and following a televised event.

GumGum Oscar Graphic

Just as search volume for the nominated films and actors increase in the days leading up to an awards program, in-image advertising extends the “event horizon” beyond the broadcast itself to the days, and sometimes weeks, surrounding any major television event.

Deploying an in-image advertising campaign in the days surrounding an awards broadcast can be achieved for a fraction of the cost of television, with comparable scale and higher frequency than would be feasible during a single broadcast. And with the highest amount of image engagement occurring on the day after the show, in-image advertising gives brands a new opportunity to have the last impression long after the statues have been handed out in Hollywood.

An analysis of image traffic across the GumGum platform in the days before and after the Oscars in recent years shows both impressions and click-through rates rose steadily in the days prior to the broadcast and spiked on the day immediately following each event. The pattern was also consistent for the Golden Globes and the Grammys.

GumGum in Advertising Age

Today marks a first for GumGum, as our full-page ad appears on pg. 13 of the annual Digital Issue in Advertising Age’s print magazine.

This is the start of a year-long program with AdAge, designed to raise awareness of GumGum among agencies, brands and the digital advertising industry.

Kudos to our in-house design team for bringing the power of images and the benefit of in-image advertising to life in the industry’s most revered publication.

A Disruptive Game Plan: Catching the Active Consumer

genericTV_runway_1_3_print

Consumer engagement. Brand impact. Whether it’s initiating a dialogue, extending a brand’s story or determining strategies to win over hearts and minds, consumers are king when it comes to brand marketing online.

To prove the efficacy of our in-image ads to drive consumer engagement, we deployed Nielsen Online Brand Effect on behalf of a major electronics retailer, as they rolled out their ultra high-definition televisions. Knowing that pro football coincided with the holiday shopping season, we overlaid our custom animated creative for the new TVs on football related images across the GumGum platform. 
 
The result was not only an increase in awareness of the brand, but a 12.1% brand lift in purchase intent among those exposed to the campaign. To read the full case study, click here.
 
A BIG THANK YOU goes out to the team at Nielsen for featuring GumGum on the Nielsen Newswire and inviting us to co-present the study during their publisher breakfast at the upcoming iMedia Agency Summit in Scottsdale on December 10, 2013.

Where Images and Ads Hook Up

For a long time, we’ve wanted to use video to bring to life the concept of in-image advertising in a fun and clever way, and this week we launched an entertaining 40-second spot we think does just that.

Where Images and Ads Hook Up” casts two young models in a provocative scene; an image is portrayed by the young woman, and the ad is played by a man, while viewers become privy to the steamy interaction that ensues. Our call to action is read on screen: “enhance your brand’s performance,” the double entendre meant to communicate the value of in-image ads within the context of our sexy spot.
