Five communication campaigns that took place during the last six moths generated, for the promoted brands, 24.8% more apparitions in online mass-media compared to the same period last year, according to a monitoring analysis made by MediaIQ, Romanian service of media intelligence.
Between April 1st – September 30th, 1,152 articles were written mentioning the promoted brands, compared to only 866 in the same period last year.
After the online monitoring analysis we made, we noticed that a social campaign had a bigger coverage in social media than a brand from the FMCG industry, for example. This shows that the average social media user has developed a mature online behavior, thus making room for progress and improvement in future communication strategies. Having also analyzed the results of a campaign for a restaurant chain, we noticed that, after a constant two-month presence in the online mass-media, the brand was five-time more visible compared to the corresponding period of the year before. This data can be used as a relevant indicator of a campaign’s efficiency
