As a first mover in HbbTV standards, ProSiebenSat.1 PULS 4 and Media 1 implemented a yet unrivalled campaign for the Austrian market. For the beverage manufacturer Vöslauer the TV viewer received his own, personalized yoga training directly to his TV screen – simply by pressing the Red Button on his remote control. Hence, becoming a professional yogi in the comfort of one’s very own living room under the guidance of expert Viktoria Ecker became even easier.

The ProSiebenSat.1 PULS 4-Group ‘First Mover of Red Button content’, together with Media 1 client Vöslauer, started one the so far largest HbbTV advertising campaign in April 2016.
The current spectrum of advertising- and interaction possibilities of trendsetting hybrid television technology was fully exploited. The use of pre-rolls, content ads and integration of the launch bar within the app, as well as the interactive Red button in the commercial itself, brought attention to the HbbTV appearance of Vöslauer. The microsite received a very simple and user-friendly video menu, in which – matching the latest Vöslauer TV spot – seven different yoga tutorials with yoga instructor Viktoria Ecker were available. As a result, beginners as well as yoga experts could participate directly from their big TV screens at home in exercises such as ‘mobilize’, ‘arm balance’ or ‘back bend’, with the guidance of the yoga-expert.

 

Birgit Aichinger, Head of Marketing and Sales Inland: ‘Above all, being the industry leader means, being innovative – not only in terms of products, but also in the mix of communications. Integrated campaign means to tread new paths as well and to use the latest digital opportunities. We are beyond thrilled and very proud of the success of our HbbTV advertising campaign!’

 

Joachim Krügel, Media 1: ‘Without having to change the screen to see and instantly do yoga tutorials on the Vöslauer microsite. Even though the technical reach of HBB TV was not too broad for this campaign, the success for the brand was grand.’

 

Michael Stix, Executive Board ProSiebenSat.1 PULS4: ‘With this HBB TV campaign, we managed to reach and mobilize our viewers in a very special way, right in the comfort of their own home. Ultimately, when both the client is satisfied, as well as the viewers at home had good experiences, then our work has been done properly, we are thrilled.’

 

ProSiebenSat.1 PULS 4 and Vöslauer campaign keeps users for up to 30 minutes.
The results of the evaluation speak for themselves: The Red Button campaign was accessible on approximately 750,000 HBB TV devices, that represents a net coverage of nearly 70% of all Hbb TV enabled households in Austria. In total, over 1,4 million people have been reached with this Vöslauer campaign. Within a 41-day period (period: March 04 – April 13, 2016), the campaign content was followed on approximately 120,000 devices, rated with the average headcount (about 1,9), which sit in front of it, results in a total of about 228,000 people with a maximum measured length of time of up to 30 minutes on the Vöslauer microsite.

Red Button – Hbb TV with the red button
Hbb TV builds upon existing broadcast standards and internet technologies. Through the so-called ‘Red Button’ on the remote control, Hbb TV apps can be opened directly on the TV screen. One navigates simply via the existing TV remote control, or the set top box. In addition to normal TV reception, numerous new services such as media libraries, games and EPGs can be accessed. The Red Button function can furthermore be combined with classic TV commercials, which link directly onto the product world of the client’s microsite. ProSiebenSat.1 PULS 4 exclusively offers Red Button campaigns throughout Austria for advertisers.

The measurability of communication services is becoming increasingly important for companies, while provability remains difficult in numerous areas. In PR, one can merely depend on the ad rates of print media. It’s also rather common to measure the performance of communication primarily on the number of published clippings, rather than on the quality.

Media 1 did not want to settle for that. Therefor they created a state-of-the-art tool that allows allegorizing the output of print articles by their relevance. This new tool combines the basic principle of classical advertising value calculation with an extended qualitative-based analysis. The impetus came from a project for a client of the sister agency DEMNER, MERLICEK & BERGMANN, for which an extensive press event was implemented.

Joachim Krügel, Agency Management Media 1: ‘We wanted to show the client the published media reports from newspapers and magazines in regards to the incremental value for the brand Meinl, instead of focusing on the achieved advertising value as usual. Furthermore, it was important to us to develop a user-friendly, simple tool that can present an unambiguous and precise result.’

Created and developed by Media 1, “PRoofer” incorporates parameters such as target group affinity, image placement, product and brand mentioning in headline, text and captions, as well as the relevance of said article for the brand or the product. The calculated PR-value is also expedient in an overall consideration of all communication services of a brand.  

Mag. Christoph Auböck, Head of Strategic Research & Insights Media 1: ‘ The basis for calculating the PR-value consists of various studies on the topics impact of attention and advertising. The parameters in need of evaluation, as for example the target group affinity, were deposited with weighting factors and, simply put, identify together with the advertising rate a significant PR-value.’

An adequate tool for the representation of PR performance in online-media is already in the works.

It’s not just YOU&METRO, but starting now it’s also Media1&METRO, 03/25/2015

Joachim Krügel, Agency Management Media 1: ‘It doesn’t happen every day that the chemistry is this great from the get go. But that’s exactly what happened between ‘METRO Cash and Carry Austria’ and Media 1 and the further collaborations lead to great results as well.’

These results are something to be proud of: End of February the latest METRO campaign started throughout Austria. So, for the first time there is a broad communication for all 12 METRO markets throughout the country.

The campaign consists of motives of the image campaign ‘YOU&METRO’, which has already attained international popularity. Through complementary motives with special offers, sales in METRO wholesale markets are specifically boosted.

Media 1 in collaboration with METRO has developed an elaborate campaign architecture that highlights the brand essence of METRO perfectly. Furthermore the campaign enables a highly efficient targeting of its clientele with a well-defined catchment area around the respective METRO wholesale stores. Joachim Krügel is certain that this year’s campaign will result in a great upturn for METRO in Austria.

Mag. Maria Laubreiten, Department Manager and Dr. Jörg Biefeld, Divisional Director at METRO: ‘During our first meeting Media 1 managed to convince us with their ideas. The impression of professionalism, speed and brand awareness was completely confirmed throughout the rather demanding planning process. We are thrilled to bring the METRO brand closer to people throughout Austria with this campaign and hope that many Austrians will say in the future: ‘ME&METRO’

Thoughts of Joachim Krügel, agency management MEDIA 1, 12/12/2014

A while back I found a newspaper article titled ‘Its own solar system’, which introduces twelve qualities that shape a brand:

1.    The foundation of a brand is its grown identity.
2.    Distinguished is, who focuses on the core strengths.
3.    Strong brand develop and live their own ‘solar system’.
4.    Profile arise not where everybody walks, but on a narrow path
5.    Strong brands require continuous change management.
6.    Substance and aura complement each other perfectly.
7.    The substance of strong brands draws on the innovative capacity of one organization – its employees.
8.    Perception of the brand is the result of interwoven communication.
9.    Brand communication is bi-directional.
10.  Strong brands are led by a brand sensitive management.
11.  Partners of strong brands live integrated communication – even exceeding competitive boundaries.
12.  Especially during difficult times, strong brands have special opportunities.

What a timeless compilation. The 11th point struck me in particular. In the article it is partially exposed as: ‘Communication services still mainly structure using single instruments. This for example means, the classic advertising agency, the event agency… . Integrated solutions require a new type of collaboration across agency partners…’

A media agency that demands that silo thinking has no place in today’s world anymore must be able of working with the other agencies of a customer in cooperation.
This means, that the media agency must be able to know and understand the thinking and working of – for example – the creative agency. And, naturally, such media agency must first and foremost understand the brand and its positioning. Please ask yourself: Does my media agency understand my creative agency and vice versa? Do they communicate without me having to push them?

The newspaper article is from June 25th, 2003 from the Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung. Most media agencies have since then included instruments to completely exhaust efficiency. Unfortunately, they seemed to have forgotten to focus on the most crucial. Please don’t get me wrong, efficiency is a very important pillar in the work of a media agency. But before exhausting efficiency, a good media agency should develop effective plans that enables the brand to shine brightly for the consumer, to embody deep-rooted values and to invite the consumer to extensively deal with the brand. In the best case scenario the good work of the media agency makes the brand even more magnetic.

Subs instead of small sandwiches: MEDIA 1 wins Subway as a new client
December 2nd, 2014

From now on MEDIA 1 focuses on fresh sandwiches. In a two-stage pitch, made up of a presentation and subsequent specific task assignment, the brand media agency left behind well-known competitors and convinced the international franchise business of its skill set.

The famous subs restaurant Subway is, measured by the number of restaurants, the worlds’ largest restaurant chain. The Subway brand has been established for a couple of years in Austria and so far counts 22 restaurants. Since the delicious subs are hugely popular, the number of restaurants in the country is rapidly growing. Subway has ambitious goals for the future and is looking to increase the number of locations over the next years by 50%. MEDIA 1 will now support this effort and further the positioning in Austria.

Gordon Faehnrich, Head of Marketing DACH Subway: “MEDIA 1 best understood our brand and our challenges in Austria and developed convincing approaches to also get Austrians excited about Subways.”

Joachim Kruegel, Agency Manager MEDIA 1: “We are thrilled about winning Subway, since the brand is particularly exciting and the challenges to make the brand more appealing to Austrians are particularly interesting.”

Press release June 26, 2014

Watching TV over the Internet continues its march forward. Each day, thousands of users take advantage of the wide selection of content – to watch international series, video clips and mobile clips on their smartphones, tablets or screens at home. The advertising industry takes advantage of this user behavior and focuses for quite some time on pre-rolls in order to get their message across. The demand is great, the offering however rather limited and therefore expensive. A further disadvantage is that many users find the short spot being played before their desired clip or video as annoying – compared to a non-linear motion picture.

To counteract this, Media 1 in collaboration with ProSiebenSat.1PULS4 and their ‘SevenOne VideoNetwork’ unlocked the slumbering potential of post-rolls as part of a campaign for the client Volksbank. Post-rolls were placed at the end of the video content and did therefor not have an adverse effect on the users’ entertainment-behavior. Another added plus of post-rolls is the higher affinity or advertising effect, as post-rolls are being used deliberately by the user (advertising on demand).

The numbers of the campaign for Volksbank speak for themselves. Linda Weissnar, Digital Media Planner Media 1: ‘The CTR (click-through-rate) with post-rolls is at 3.09 percent and is about two-thirds higher than the used pre-rolls with 0.9 percent. This results in a significantly lower cost-per-click. To speak in numbers, the figures were 0.92 Euro with post- and 4.70 Euro with pre-rolls.’

By combining pre- and post-rolls, one creates the opportunity to transport advertising messages more efficiently. For advertisers this results in versatile and innovative possibilities to communicate their messages efficiently and directed to their target group.

‘Working with Media 1 and the use of post-rolls as part of latest campaign has shown how important it is to be open for new advertising possibilities. The results have shown that there is still strong potential within and that we will further be using post-rolls as a form of advertising,’ Bettina Fatting, Director Competence Center online, Volksbank says convinced of post-rolls.

Dr. Michael Stix, CEO of ProSiebenSat.1PULS4 shares the exact same opinion: ‘We are thrilled that together with Volksbank and Media 1, we could prove that instream video advertising should not be defined by pre-rolls, but that post-rolls have enormous potential as well and should be used to design campaigns even more efficiently.’
