goviral Reveals Best 100 Brands in Branded Content

Red Bull has the best social video strategy, according to a new global report by leading branded video distribution network, goviral.

The first goviral Social Video Equity Report lists the top 100 most powerful brands in branded content in 2012. Energy drink Red Bull beat technology giants Google (2nd) and Samsung (5th), with Apple and Microsoft both failing to make the top ten, coming in at numbers 11 and 37 respectively.

goviral’s Social Video Equity Report explores how video content is being used by global brands as part of their marketing strategy. Brands were audited based on volume, total views and engagement for content uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook in 2012. goviral then used its expertise in branded content to evaluate the quality, purpose, innovation and audience relevance before calculating its final social video equity score.

Key findings from goviral’s Social Video Equity Report:

  • Luxury fashion brands strike gold with Prada (7th), Burberry (16th) and Louis Vuitton (18th) all featuring in the top twenty as a result of high engagement scores
  • In the battle of the car brands, BMW came out top in 12th, ahead of VW (13th), Mercedes Benz (15th), Toyota (20th) and Porsche (22nd)
  • Alcohol brands failed to make an impact, with Smirnoff (90th), Corona (93rd) and Jack Daniels (99th) all lying at the bottom end of the scale
  • Visa proves the exception to the norm in the financial sector. At 24th, it benefitted hugely from an aggressive video content programme for its Olympic sponsorship
  • Only 15% of brands have official channels on Vimeo, with the majority relying solely on YouTube to host content

The brands evaluated were drawn from Interbrand’s 2012 Best Global Brands Report with the additions of Red Bull and Old Spice (6th), which goviral found to use video in a highly impactful and engaging way.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
