How three top betting sites handle social content

Social content is – or at least should be – entirely driven by a brand’s tone of voice. And that tone of voice should be driven in turn by the brand’s target audience and the image it wants to achieve. 

Betting companies are interesting because they get away with stuff that a lot of other brands wouldn’t (everyone remembers the ‘last one to sign up to a Paddy Power account is a t***’ banner ad).  

I thought I’d look at three of the top UK betting sites to see how they handle social content and what other brands can learn from their success.

Could Shield 5 signal a new wave of social cinema?

If you’re not already aware of the Shield 5 series on Instagram, go and watch it now. 

To me it is a perfect example of just how ridiculously far we’ve come with social media since MySpace first became the next big thing all those years ago. 

Not only that, but if people react positively to it I think we could see much more of this type of content on Instagram, and no doubt brands will want to get involved with their own series.
