Six great automotive content marketing campaigns

Here’s a selection of content marketing endeavours by some car brands.

I’m not sure I’ve ever been able to properly define content marketing and indeed my selections may stray between native advertising, brand advertising and bona fide content that feels rather more ‘agnostic’.

However, what’s certain is that all the content I’ve picked does more than simple advertorial.

For some more content on automotive check out my German and Japanese big three reviews.

Automotive online: the German big three at a glance

I've looked at Japanese automotive brands online, now it's time to take on Germany.

I thought I'd take a spin through the UK websites of the German big three automotive companies. What do BMW, Audi and Mercedes' websites handle like for first timers?

Well, they might be known as the big three, but much like the Japanese roundup, there's a clear loser.

For some detail on automotive and social media, check out these posts.


15 of the best branded Vines from July 2014

Let’s all pretend we’re not halfway into August already and instead rewind back to the last few days of July with its less inclement weather, rabid excitement for the upcoming Commonwealth Games and the promise of an ‘on-time’ round-up of the best branded Vines of the month.

Here’s our genuine excuse for its tardiness. I was on honeymoon and David Moth forgot to do it in my absence.  

Hmmm... sometimes you can be transparent merely by omission. Anyway, on with the compact cavalcade of content!

10 of the best branded Instagram videos of February 2014

Here are some of the finest branded Instagram videos from February 2014, or Instavids as nobody in their right mind calls them.

Last week I discussed the future of Instagram video and Vine in the post has Instagram really killed Vine?

It seems that since the introduction of Instagram’s 15 second video capability, brands and regular users alike have begun to ignore Vine in favour of a social media platform they were already signed up to anyway.

I round-up the best branded Vines on a monthly basis (here are the best branded Vines of February) and I personally feel that there’s still massive potential for the only one-year old Vine when it comes to improving brand perception and connection. 

So what separates Vine from Instagram video apart from the obvious technical differences? Perhaps by looking at these examples of Instagram videos from brands we’ll be able to understand how each platform can exist side-by-side whilst remaining different enough to be worthy of separate time and investment.

The hashtag: understand customers and remain in control

Hashtags in social media marketing are overused and under-appreciated, but it also can be hard to measure the success of hashtag campaigns.

Marketers need to do more than count likes and followers. They need to truly understand sentiment, language, tone of voice, and the trends of how conversations unfold, and campaigns are re-appropriated, around their chosen hashtag.


Auto industry accelerates with mobile computing

The experience of buying and owning automobiles is being remade in mobile channels. Apps, tablets, and new interoperability are changing how manufacturers and dealers connect with customers, and how we connect with our cars.
