The Social Side of the World Cup

KassowayThis year’s World Cup is projected to be the first truly social Cup. Marketers will be connecting with their consumers through #hashtags, “brand newsrooms” will be abuzz with trending topics and consumers will be prompted to share those remarkable ads across their networks — all in an effort to seize real-time opportunities and become part of the social conversation during the World Cup.

We leveraged our social influence marketing and insights platform to poll 850+ men and women and found that 74.2% of viewers expect to be on social media while watching the games. They’ll likely be very active with 47% posting about their favorite teams/players and 42% posting about their favorite ads.

Move over Nike and Adidas, you haven’t won just yet!  Let the games begin, and may the best social strategy win.
