The Best of Digital Marketing Efforts in 2018

28 December 2018

3 mins read

The year 2018 has been a crazy ride for digital marketing all around, from Facebook being interrogated at Congress to data leaks at Google, there were no short of headlines.

However, there were also amazing happenings throughout this year, such as amazing digital marketing campaigns. As a professional digital marketing agency ourselves, it’s only fitting that we look at some of the best for this industry in 2018.

In no order of merit, starting off with…

Tide: Everything’s A Tide Ad

Tide had a crazy 2018 because of the Tide Pod challenge, but they bounced back well with an awesome Superbowl advertisement. By recreating the cliches in Superbowl ads, they linked it to their brand with a resounding key message: “If it is clean, it’s got to be Tide.”

The efforts to recreate iconic ads and creating the link was deserving of standing ovations from the industry itself. With a simple hook, they delivered their key message and left a lasting impression of all their viewers.

Learning Point: Link your brands to the ordinary within your key message.

American Express: ION Orchard VIP Spree Game

In support of their ION Orchard VIP Sweepstakes, American Express launched an interactive game to drive footfall within ION Orchard and give out Grab Promo Codes. Using the visuals of the Sweepstakes, the game inspired Card Members to scan QR codes in ION Orchard, and envisioned themselves winning the sweepstakes.

Card Members had to collect various luxury items to reach a target score and win the Grab Promo Code. During the 2 months the game launched, the promo codes ran out quickly within the 1st half of each month.

Learning Points: For any supporting campaigns, tie in your visuals and game mechanics well with the overarching theme.

Looking for interactive digital marketing efforts like these? Meet the amazing team behind this game.

McDonald Singapore: Ramadan

During the month of Ramadan, our Muslim friends have to fast, going without food and drink from sunrise to sunset. With that knowledge in mind, McDonald delivered a feel-good advertisement that celebrated the spirit of Ramadan. The video was on-point in showing a daily routine of a Muslim delivery rider during Ramadan and showcased their product, Happy Sharing Box, with the message: Share The Spirit of Ramadan.

The production showed clear cultural knowledge and sensitivity for Muslims in Singapore and their Muslim employees. Because of that, it touched the hearts of Singaporeans everywhere and generated positive reactions all around.

Learning Point: Make an effort to learn about the different cultures before creating a festive advert to celebrate it.

Lego: Imagine & Build The Future
Taken from Design Boom

Children often play with their toys using their imaginations, especially with the globally recognised Lego bricks. In the same school of thought, Lego showed how their toys broaden imagination.

From the recreation of the famous King Kong scene in the living room to the child’s envisioning of the career of a fire-fighter, Lego pushed the boundaries of creativity in these static visuals. In the world of GIFs and short videos, it was a refreshing change of pace to have impactful static visuals that deliver a great message.

Learning Point: Know how your products/services are being used and show their value proposition in creative ways.

In-App Purchasing To Transform Instagram Marketing

The once photo-and-video-sharing application has turned into more than just a platform for you to share your selfies or stalk your favourite brands or celebrities. Now, you can look to purchase your desired items straight off Instagram, changing Instagram marketing forever.

Last year, Instagram introduced shoppable tags, where brands could tag up to 5 products in a photo. The feature was then developed to be included in stories and videos. This allows users to access their favourite products by viewing a short description and its price with a single tap.

Is Artificial Intelligence (AI) The New Wave of Advertisement Content?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has slowly crept into every industry, even in digital marketing, and it looked like everything could be made better with AI.

Digital marketing has benefitted from the automation of strenuous processes but the content within ads seemed irreplaceable by AI.

At least that’s what people thought until Burger King released this:

If you let your phone’s texting suggestion create an ad for Burger King, you’ll probably get something like:

“Burger King and I wanna was a great night out with the girls in a very small group of fun people who cannot is a great way of making it fun to try it and then make sure to make it happen.”

Similarly, in these ads, the AI’s voiceover and the content were awkward and funny, which seems to hit the spot for some consumers.

While it is scary to imagine a world where even content is run by AI, it seems like there has been more and more research and development going in that direction.

Why did this ad appeal to so many audiences?

Currently, advertisements are proliferating our everyday space, and the only way for your ad to stand out is to find creative and relatable angles.

Likewise, the Burger King ad used a creative yet relatable idea of faulty AI content, which captured the attention of the masses.

Hence, the formula seems clear: the less brand sells the product, the more it will appeal to the general public. This is because such content is viewed as more sincere in their interactions with consumers.

If you are looking for a strategic content with a creative and relatable angle, approach a creative team that generates meaningful interactions with consumers.

Will AI become the new wave of digital advertisement content?

We don’t think so.

AI has successfully transformed digital marketing, such as data analytics and targeting/re-targeting various profiles based on interests and internet behaviour.

But when it comes to content, humans are superior in terms of creativity and empathy, which AI fails to replicate.

Even the content of the Burger King ad itself was created by the marketing team at Burger King, banking on the inability of AI to create content and humour.

Without creativity and empathy, AI is unable to replicate creative and relatable content as exemplified by the Burger King ad.

So how should I craft digital marketing content going forward?

While targeting helps to bring the message to the right people, the right content will find the right people on its own.

Be creative. Creativity will remain the key to content creation for a long time.

Creative content often becomes talking points in everyday conversations and media news and improves your brand visibility.

At the end of the day, you will need creative yet strategic content (link to our top 5 ad article) to achieve marketing goals in the digital age.

It is good to employ advanced technology. However, there’s nothing in this world that can replace good and effective advertising content built on creativity, not even AI.

If you need help in crafting a top-of-the-line advertising content, look for a digital team that is experienced in doing so.

Facebook Revolutionising Digital Marketing With AI

The digital marketing industry has seen massive changes over recent years and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a rising factor. Because of the expansion of AI, we are able to study and identify consumer trends when crafting marketing strategies. This is vital, as an effective partnership between AI and digital marketing results in a boost for performance and revenue.

In line with the AI rave, Facebook has acquired the genius startup, GrokStyle. Yes, the social media goliath has acquired the entire team behind the savvy invention. By emerging with a one-of-a-kind invention, Grokstyle has helped multinational corporations communicate with its consumers effectively. Their point-and-search functionality earned recognition when it was added to Ikea’s mobile application, Place.

Beyond enhancing its AI inventions, the social media platform is on a roll to get new technology to contribute to their AI capabilities. Brands and companies can continually adopt new technology to always be ahead in engaging its audience while exploring and tapping into new territories for digital marketing in the near future.

To fully maximise the use of existing social media features, speak to professionals who can craft a thorough strategy just for you.

So how should I utilise AI in my marketing strategies?

AI has evolved to be beneficial to many industries, as seen by Facebook expanding on AI’s creative abilities to enhance their consumers’ experience. How about you?
