Mondelez and Google expand alliance to better target “diverse” audiences, including youth, via data, in-store and online
...Mondelez already has proven to be a game changer in digital marketing in its two short years in existence. And now the global snack-brands spinoff from Kraft Foods plans to leap decisively ahead of its competition through a vast strategic partnership with Google and its YouTube unit that will result in 10% of the total Mondelez advertising budget going to online video this year. It also won’t be long before Mondelez and Google invite supermarket retailers into the fold to help them exploit the unprecedented possibilities of their partnership by taking advantage of apps and location-based technologies to use the new content to influence sales inside the store. “We’re going to quickly see a focus on that, especially as we get closer to having anonymized personal data that can map onto retailer data,” Bonin Bough, vice president of global media and consumer engagement for Mondelez, told CPGmatters. “Then those kinds of partnerships with retailers, even around online video, become really exciting.” For the time being, the excitement is all for Mondelez and for Google, to which Mondelez has made a big commitment in advertising spending. It includes assistance from Google offices around the world to help Mondelez and its family of brands – which include Oreo, Cadbury, Trident and many others -- distribute timely, relevant, engaging and diverse branded-video content on YouTube that will create a return on investment for Mondelez and fuel sales growth of its products. ... Bough said the second pillar of the deal is to help Mondelez optimize ROI with online video as it reaches more diverse audiences and those that are difficult to communicate with via traditional channels such as TV. ... Among other things that are planned under the current deal, Mondelez and Google will be partnering on content pilots with YouTube's Brand Partner Program. Also, along with Fullscreen, a global youth media company, Mondelez is crafting a new model of high-quality, low-cost video content featuring influential digital stars, at first focusing on its Sour Patch Kids brand.
