Mini, the iconic two-door compact car brand, originally produced by the British Motor Corporation (BMC). It was acquired by the BMW Group in 1994 and has been owned by the German automotive company since. Mini’s franchise models, the Hatch/Hardtop, Clubman, Coupe, and Roadster are assembled at BMW’s Plant Oxford in Cowley, England. In contrast, the Convertible, Paceman, and other models are manufactured in different EU countries.
Vevo is a leading video hosting service (of US origin) owned by four large holdings, Alphabet (Google), Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, and Sony Music Entertainment. As one of the world’s leading music video networks, it connects global audiences to high-quality music video content. Vevo offers cross-channel and cross-platform services like smart TVs, digital video recorders, digital media players, and streaming television services.
Beatgrid’s cross-media audience measurement solution was set up for deterministic R&F validation for TV, Vevo, and YouTube. For the study, Vevo’s key target audience was 18-34 years. BMW, who advertises on Vevo, was keen also to understand Vevo’s effectiveness (as a channel) in reaching the 18-34 audience, therefore, a Mini Electric campaign was used for the campaign measurement.
Ad exposure results are based on Beatgrid’s mobile ACR measuring cross-media content exposure. How it works: The audio of the AV ads is turned into audio fingerprints. The Beatgrid panel community has the mobile ACR meter app installed on their phone, which converts ambient sound into ‘audio fingerprints. These audio fingerprints are matched with the ones from individual ad creatives. This enables accurate person-based cross-media, cross-platform campaign audience verification.
Beatgrid has a GDPR-compliant opt-in mobile panel in the UK, who are invited to Beatgrid’s proprietary Media Rewards app.
For this campaign with Vevo and MINI:
As music video content was increasingly viewed through the TV screen, Vevo understood the importance of accurately understanding the incremental audience Vevo delivers over TV, BVOD, and YouTube.
