“Amobee was crucial to helping our team at MEC unlock audiences and provide insight in real-time, throughout this year’s tournament. The speed at which Brand Intelligence can provide insights and the efficiency of the team to deliver and implement that data is a true asset to any campaign.”

– Oliver Levy, MEC Digital Planning Director

The Objective

As the official water supplier for Wimbledon, evian wanted to leverage Amobee Brand Intelligence data and insights to promote branded evian content to an engaged digital audience that had interest in Wimbledon.

evian needed to stand out amongst competition in the social space surrounding the event- these included Jaguar’s #FeelWimbledon campaign and Robinson’s #HuntForWimbeldon campaign, which were running at the same time.

MEC and Amobee worked together to maximize interaction with the campaign, setting a target CTR of 0.76% as a benchmark.

Campaign Details

During Wimbledon, evian wanted to increase their association with the world famous tennis tournament and created ‘#wimblewatch’ Twitter campaign with video content produced on a daily basis throughout the tournament, featuring celebrities including Stacey Solomon, Melanie Sykes, Greg James and members of the public watching and commenting on gossip and events at Wimbledon that day.

MEC and Amobee worked together to identify three key components to make #wimblewatch a success; Speed, scale, and efficient audience buying.

Amobee set up a Data War Room to measure digital engagement data in real time, which enabled the Amobee Ad Operations team to monitor consumer sentiment, contextual correlations, strategic keywords, content categories and evian’s target audience. These insights gave evian the opportunity to react immediately to events happening in real time throughout the tournament, an essential part in the success of the campaign.
