NEW YORK, December 13, 2013 (ADOTAS) – Today, global video technology company Unruly announced a partnership with Duracell Powermat for its 2013 holiday campaign for the Powermat product line, a new innovative product that puts an end to phone battery anxiety. Duracell Powermat leveraged Unruly’s insights, video content creation best practices and the Unruly video player as a part of the campaign’s digital media mix. The new campaign, “Take Charge, Be Empowered,” is a fun animated video created by a member of eYeka’s crowdsourcing community, starring tech-loving chimps that become angry when their phone runs out of power. It allows consumers to watch and share and feeds off the anxiety we all feel when their devices are low on battery.
“Social video is a must in today’s digital marketing landscape and Unruly really helped us to create a custom solution for the new Duracell Powermat products,” said Federico Luna, vice president marketing for Duracell Powermat. “Unruly created a player customized to drive ROI for Duracell Powermat, featuring a call to action and purchase capability that launches directly from the player. Unruly’s vast network also helped us to target and reach our demographic of young connecteds age 22-34.”
The new campaign is geared toward visualizing the anxiety people feel when their phone runs out of battery and the subsequent relief people feel when they finally find a power source to charge up again. By partnering up with eYeka, the leading crowdsourcing community, Duracell Powermat was able to gain the visualization elements necessary to show how people feel when they run out of power and then discover a convenient power source. The new range of Duracell Powermat GoPower portable products enable people to keep their phones, tablets and other mobile devices charged at all times, no matter where they are.
The use of social video is indicative of the paradigm shift happening in advertising right now with social videos and sharing serving as eWord of Mouth marketing, the primary factor behind 20-50% of purchase decisions (McKinsey). Shared videos come pre-vetted with a seal of peer approval.
“Social video is one of the most engaging ad formats available on or offline. It’s a non-interruptive, user-initiated video format that puts the viewer in the driver’s seat, which is how people like to consume content,” said Unruly president Richard Kosinski. “We are helping Duracell Powermat reach their target of “young connecteds” across the Open Web, on all devices, to drive engagement with their branded content and drive viewers down the purchase funnel this holiday season.”
