Changing media landscape
Whereas once mainstream media was the main channel to learn about new releases and events, this has been replaced by online channels. When forming an opinion about the choices available, consumers no longer rely solely on critics’ reviews or their immediate social circle but turn to forums and social media for peer recommendations. Online word-of-mouth (WOM) has by and large replaced mainstream media as the main influence in the discovery and evaluation phase.
Taking cinema releases as an example, the buzz around high-profile films can be measured long before the release date, when fans begin to share their expectations on discussion boards and mainstream social media channels. In line with marketing output and trailers, the volume of conversations accelerates as people use social media to gauge opinions and engage with and reshare promotional content or trending posts. Mentions typically peak around the release date, but it’s not rare for box office hits to maintain traction for a long period after launch. Cast and characters, soundtrack, key scenes or even special effects and animation are addressed as moviegoers either engage in deep discussions or simply share their viewing experiences, whether good or bad, in a one-off tweet.
These conversations offer a goldmine of information for production companies. Not only do they reveal success factors and areas for improvement, but they also contain information about the viewers that can be used for in-depth audience segmentation and profiling. When combined, these insights into people’s likes and dislikes, viewership demographics and behaviours can be used to inform communication strategies, content development and marketing.
Regardless of the entertainment form, social intelligence offers companies the opportunity to pull insights and data to boost resonance, track and manage sentiment around their brand or product, and adapt to consumers’ needs and desires.
