Mobile Roundtable (Concl): Brand Marketing & The Future of Social TV

Mobile roundtable julie fajgenbaum dorrian porter rachel pasquaWill consumers and brands really tune into social TV over the long term?

The whole field is getting a lot of buzz these days, from startups like Miso and GetGlue, to high-profile initiatives at this year's Super Bowl that included a branded app from Chevy and Coca-Cola's interactive Polar Bear experience on Facebook.

I have not seen solid figures on viewer engagement with the Chevy app, but the fact that GM announced this week it will sit out Super Bowl 2013, it stands to reason the initiative wasn't a touchdown.

Coca-Cola's experience, however, was another thing entirely. At last week's Social TV conference, Coca-Cola revealed some astonishing engagement figures for its Polar Bowl. Turns out that while Coke thought they'd engage a couple million people for an average of 2.5 minutes, the Bears - which reacted in real time to the game and even Super Bowl spots from other advertisers - attracted 9 million viewers who spent an average of 28 minutes with the brand.

In the conclusion of our May 2012 GEN WOW Mobile Roundtable, Dorrian Porter, CEO of longtime GEN WOW sponsor Mozes; Julie Fajgenbaum, vice president of brand and social media for American Express; and Rachel Pasqua, executive director of mobile marketing for Organic weigh in on the efficacy of various forms of branded social TV experiences, and prospects for the future.
