3 Best World Cup Ads in 2018 and What You Can Learn

13 July 2018

3 mins read

The FIFA World Cup 2018 is coming to an end and it has been an entertaining tournament to say the least. From upsetting favourites to Cinderella stories there were no lack of storylines this year. A quadrennial event, the World Cup unites people, even non-football fanatics and this lays the perfect opportunity for brands to leverage and showcase creative ads.

Some certainly caught our attention with the witty satires and endless shades thrown on some of the notable footballers. And of course, the smart perfectly timed ads – although some were blatantly jumping on the bandwagon.

Here’s some of our favourites!

1. Screwfix’s own Legends of the Game

What Is It?

Screwfix’s Legend of the Games was a major hit and ranked as the most well-received World Cup ad so far.  A DIY chain store, Screwfix showcased construction employees sharing the names of previous football legends in short videos (10s). Using names like David Seaman and Michael Owen in football-related actions, the ad was simple but effective. Watch the compilation above to appreciate this classy ad.

The Eureka

You don’t need fancy stars (at least not literally) and big budgets to create a successful and engaging ad. With well-timed sound effects and affiliation to current events or happenings, a video as short as 10s can produce amazing results.  Advertising doesn’t have to be complicated and grand.

2. KFC Dissing on Brazil’s Neymar Diving Antics
What Is It?

South Africa KFC produced this gem that garnered a lot of attention and reports from multiple news outlets. By relying on one simple fact – football players dive and overreact to fouls, often rolling on the floor continuously.  This was made even better because of the impeccable timing – Neymar Jr., the Brazilian star, was getting ridiculed online for the same behaviour. As a result, the ad became comedic gold.

The Eureka

Timing is everything here. When your ad resonates with what is already being discussed online, it tends to do well. By relying on trends and discussion points on social media, this ad hit the jackpot in engaging the audience.

It pays to listen and research current topics and trends. Literally.

3. Geico – The Longest Goal Celebration… Ever
What Is It?

A goal celebration dragged out. Really, it was that simple. The ad had a simple logic: as long as football players celebrated by sliding, Geico will keep helping people save. They relied on a common football knowledge – players sliding after scoring. Similar to KFC’s ad, they exaggerated the fact to ridiculous extents and made the audience’s day. Not a knee-slapping, roll on floor kind of way, but the giggle and smile kind of way.

The Eureka

The ad worked because of a strong tie-in with Geico’s branding. Geico has always released ads in the same line of logic, only tweaking the content in general. With simple logic and tie in with brand and current events, your ad will produce desired results.

Have a strong brand story, it makes it easier for you to come up with ads that are strong, relatable and ties in with current events.

The TL;DR Lesson Plan
  1. Keep your ads simple, short and sweet.
  2. Listen to online conversations, there is 🏅to be found
  3. Have a strong branding story

Or, you can just hire a creative digital agency to do all these things for you, if you know what I mean. 😉

4 All-Time Successful Logo Rebrands

Rebranding is becoming a more common marketing strategy, which can range from changing business models to a simple logo rebrand.  Whether it is to stand out from your competitors or to remove negative associations, rebranding is essentially executed with the purpose to change attitudes and perspectives.

Logo rebranding is a small aspect of rebranding, where brands revamp their logo by changing the name, typeface or visual icon to establish a fresh identity. While it can be simple, there have been questionable attempts that have occurred.

Taken from Creative Bloq

One recent example would be Zara’s recent logo change, that has raised a few eyebrows. By reducing the kerning of the logo, it became less appealing to users, akin to a ‘typography bus crash’.

That being said, there are successful logo rebrands out there that have drawn raves and positive reviews. If you are looking at a logo rebrand, here are our 4 favourite successful examples:

Viral Marketing, Yay or Nay?

It’s always nice to see your digital marketing efforts get viral on social media and reach a wide audience in a very short period of time. However, chasing viral marketing may lead to your downfall in this digital age.

Virality is often dictated by the STEPPS factor – Social Currency, Triggers, Emotion, Public, Practical Value, and Stories. Due to the widespread content, the things that trend these days can range from heartfelt stories to a simple photo of an egg.

Yes, a stock image of an egg went viral on Instagram and beat Kylie Jenner’s record for the number of likes. If this piece of news does not dissuade you from pursuing virality mindlessly, here are 3 more reasons to do so:

How to Drive Engagement Organically with Facebook Marketing

If you own a smartphone or have any mode of access to the Internet, chances are you have a Facebook account. And so do billions worldwide! Last we checked Facebook has an average of 1.45 billion active daily users. Sounds insane?

For marketers, while those numbers mean for potential, they come with a downside: everybody wants their post to be seen, and there are a lot of posts (an estimated 4:1 ratio of posts to people, in fact). If you don’t already know, organic reaches have steadily gone down through the years although Facebook’s not acknowledging it.

Why this happens isn’t just because of the metaphorical mountain that is the 4-billion-posts-per-day-on-Facebook burying your own post – it’s also due to Facebook’s Newsfeed Algorithm, which filters posts and does quality control to ‘optimise the user experience’ by showing them what’s relevant and interesting to them.

That algorithm doesn’t necessarily help the marketers struggling to get their fan-base to see their recent posts, however – and the less engagement you get the less likely Facebook will let your posts be featured on people’s News Feeds.

Sounds scary, but there are ways to outsmart artificial intelligence:

Facebook Ad Transparency and What It Means for You

After Facebook’s recent scandal with leaked user information and the US Election fiasco, the social media giants have decided to become more transparent with their platform. In early April, Facebook announced they were making ads transparent and marking political ads as special cases.

This has been a long time coming, given the chatter on Russian meddling since the US Elections fiasco ended 2 years ago.

How does this affect your business?

Ad transparency means anyone and everyone can now view all the ads you are running. This includes your target audience and unfortunately, your competition. The good news is that they can only see the content and the type of ad but nothing on the data and statistics that come with it.

So what should you do?
