From the 8th Annual Shorty Awards

NBCUniversal: TV Everywhere 'BEST EVER' Multi-Platform Campaign

Finalist in Multi-Platform Campaign

About this entry

Why does this entry deserve to win?

The team approached the campaign as an evolution of the 2014 campaign, where they invited audiences to "Watch TV Without the TV" and embrace the power and impact of TV, while recognizing the ability to watch TV content across multiple platforms: web, mobile and connected devices. By grounding the 2015 campaign with an added layer of observed human truth around consumer viewing behaviors and the honest interactions between people, the campaign sought to claim that for NBCU TV lovers, NBCU TVE apps are the "Best Ever," bringing the campaign to a more human and colloquial level.

Rather than communicate TVE as a list of technology features or package offerings, they targeted consumer behaviors around watching television content and drove interest by connecting to how consumers watch today. By using previously collected segmentation data to break down each brand's audiences into nearly 20 behavioral personas, the campaign took the opportunity to talk to viewers about the shows they love, in the places best suited to them, ultimately driving multiplatform KPIs for each app.

The campaign covered 7 brands and featured 24 shows; each show receiving its own media roll-out to drive KPIs.

The campaign began with a powerful push in digital media – SEM, social, digital video, and static/dynamic display units. Thousands of display banners ran on highly targeted ad networks that leaned into the personas to reach the most qualified audiences and varying CTAs and A/B creative allowed for optimization throughout the campaign.

With heavy focus on social to drive KPI's, the campaign activated Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to engage socially savvy fans of NBCU shows. Facebook carousel ads and app cards seamlessly plugged into brand/show feeds utilizing unique interest targeting and relevant but direct creative on Twitter. Unique interest targeting on Twitter allowed app cards to reach qualified users, further driving digital KPIs. Early adoption and immediate activation of emerging products including new install ads on Instagram allowed NBCU to stretch its TVE footprint even further across the social expanse.

Linqia blogger network further expanded reach and top KPI driving content was then amplified across Outbrain premium publisher sites driving additional engaged users and increased KPI activity. Digital video utilized the irreverent campaign spots that showcased human interactions between people and between a user and their beloved app.

Results

Ultimately, NBCUniversal's 7 brands were represented, including 24 shows featured within 47 video spots and over 7300 different executions across social, search, and display. The result was broad awareness and increased digital engagement among mass consumers.
