  • You will be your own boss, making sales online from home. You choose what product you want to sell. You will get a comission for each sale (each website places their own comission rate). For example: You sold a product that costs $297, you get paid 30% comissions, which will be $89. What would you think, if you sold 10 of these products per DAY? This is real. I will show you a step by step strategy, on how to bring this into life. Sign up here goo.gl/wuqdSM and we will send an email with training. 100% free, and you won`t have to invest anything. I am also trying to work on this strategy and i`m having good results.

  3. 3. FOREWORDFOREWORD The end of one year and the beginning of another. A time to reflect, question, look around oneself, the world and the industry in which we work, to take that annual marketing temperature and get a sense of how we’re all doing, where it’s all going and why we're doing it. Last year we focused on the collision of entertainment, marketing and communica- tions, where brands source their communications content from people’s passions (music to sports, gaming to pop culture, fashion to…). This year we’re seeing people simply tune out the noise and tune in to what matters: their needs served up their way. It’s not just entertain- ment they’re after, but rather relevance, value, intrigue, intellectual challenge and some good old fashioned fun. This year thanks to our trend hunters from around the world, we’re getting a prettygood sense of the next seismic shift that has already begun to rock ourworld, how these changes will affect us, and what we need to do to stay on our toes to avoid getting blocked by savvy consumers who frankly don’t give a damn. Over to you Fredda... FROM iMMERSiVE EXPERiENCES TO AD BLOCKERS... Thanks, Jérôme. Ourtrend hunters' initial findings have already pinpointed two main challenges we'll need to take on in 2016. Challenge #1: frustrated customers are increasingly blocking brand messaging, and challenge #2: the quiet rise ofthe robot - it's not quite yet Terminator or artificial intelligence (AI) gone mad, but these soulless creatures are far more prevalent than one can imagine. So where does this leave us? For brands it’s putting a pretty hefty demand on them to provide value more than just produce content, to tailor activations more than just target audiences, to engage in genuine storytell- ing more than just classic, transactional selling, and to ignite passions more than just instigate connections. 2016 will be a year of high expectations from consumers globally, and the quality of crafted content will triumph over the quantity of general marketing initiatives. To all the marketers, commu- nicators, creatives, innovators, planners, techies, dreamers and realists, let's go forth and ignite everyone’s passions, our own included.

  5. 5. Over the course of the last decade, digital platforms have seized control of the information economy by establishing cen- tralized infrastructures. Players like Amazon, Apple, Facebook and YouTube have gained a monopoly on vertical transac- tions in the digital space, from hardware systems to social sharing to video distribution. In their roles as intermediaries, platforms have created the rules by which content is produced, distributed, and consumed. This centralization has limited the ability for creative expression in their user base. The rise of online influencers and communities has fundamen- tally challenged the concept of a centralized platform. Influen- cers move fluidly across the digital universe and develop their content across multiple platforms. To their followers, platforms are becoming nothing more than a distribution channel that makes up one part of a larger media ecosystem. In response to the potential user exodus, platforms have aggres- sively expanded the acquisition and integration of additional media channels in an attempt to create their own ecosystems. Amazon launched a film and television unit and acquired the live streaming platform Twitch, Facebook bought the virtual reality maker Oculus to focus its service on video, and YouTube has expanded into gaming and exclusive over-the-top content. The platform economy is shifting towards a network of growing media ecosystems. While this development ensures the continued existence of platforms in the sharing economy, they continue to remain centralized. Meanwhile, users will likely look to break free from platform-driven ecosys- tems and will look instead to create their own, allowing them to have direct access to content and its creators. A new genera- tion of creators and makers will embraceadecentralizedmindset to create their own ecosystems, ushering in a more transparent and open era of media.

  6. 6. 2016 - TRENDS PREDICTIONS More than an app, A SoCiAL EXPERiENCE With more than 80% of consumers spending time on mobile apps, it’s only natural that brands want to create their own. Not only are apps able to offer an incredible opportu- nity for brands to engage and connect with their customers, but they’re also able to boost brand recognition and drive in-app sales and store traffic. Here‘s the catch: despite the sheer magnitude of the afore- mentioned number, only 25% of the installed apps are used frequently1 . This means that all of the other apps which were downloaded – because they looked cool, fun or useful – were quickly forgotten. When thinking about mobile app marketing strategies for 2016, and prior to brands creating their branded app, they should first ask them- selves a few questions: Where are my consumers? What are their touchpoints? What kind of apps and content do they enjoy engaging with? How and where can I create value for them? If we take a closer look at mobile usage, we see that social networking apps have the highest daily use with 68% of smartphone owners using a social app at least once a day1 . Brands must take this social behavior into account, and provide valuable experiences that match the current codes andusagesoftoday’sconsumer. For example, Shazam went beyond voice recognition and now offers visual recognition capabilities; everything from print ads to packaged goods is "shazamable," instantly creating custom mobile experiences. Not only does this let brands tell deeper stories, with mobile marketing taking center stage, it also allows them to engage with a massive audience (100M monthly active users) in a single tap. Brands that succeed in the app world may not be those that actually create their own branded app, but rather are those that find and engage their consumers on third-party "star" apps, such as Google Maps or Facebook. 1 Mobile App Marketing Insights - Google, 2015 MARCO RIGON GLOBAL HEAD OF MOBEXT - @brancaleone75 ” 80% of consumers spend time on mobile apps, but only 25% of the installed apps are frequently used. 10
  7. 7. From theater to opera, to the early days of cinema when music was a key component of silent films, music and storytelling have always been closely intertwined, and many iconic movies such as West Side Story, Fame and Mamma Mia have helped shape the musical evolution of cinema. Similar to the attraction of a stellar cast, music is increasingly becoming a strong asset with which to spark people’s interest in a movie, from both a creative and marketing aspect. Straight Outta Compton, the 2015 American biographical film about the rise and fall of the hip hop group N.W.A., was a big hit in theaters worldwide as it touched on two major passion points: cinema and music. Another great example is the publicity that was done for the sultry film 50 Shades of Grey. The movie soundtrack was atyp- ically released before the film itself, and proved to be a strong marketing asset which peaked people’s interest prior to its of- ficial release. In the coming years this trend will continue to grow, and the fusion of music and film will expand globally. This will provide movie-goers with a more visually intense and musical experience, thus wholly immersing them within the context of the film.

  8. 8. 2016 - TRENDS PREDICTIONS ARtificial intelligence, YESBut With a Hint of Caution Artificial intelligence (AI) has already infiltrated our lives much more than we realize. We plan trips using GPS systems that rely on AI to cut through the complexity of millions of routes to help us find the best one. Our smartphones understand speech, and Siri, Cortana, and Google Now are getting better at understanding our intentions. In 2016 AI will grow by leaps and bounds, and brands will fully begin to capitalize on this technology. Car manufacturers such as BMW have begun experimenting with AI. This German automotive group launched its first electric car with iGenius – a technology that is able to answer customers’ questions about the newvehicle via mobile, web and social media platforms. Not only can iGenius have hundreds of conversations at the same time, it can also memorize previous questions to generate the most pertinent answers. Facebook and Google are both building neural networksthat can recognize spoken words, target ads, and learn howto identify key features in digital images such as cars, landmarks and even the aging process in people’s faces. In media agencies however, the programmatic buying and serving of ads is driving real-time campaign decisions at speeds impossible for the human brain to replicate. But we must remain cautious. In orderto avoid hurtlingtowards a future that no longer takes people or our relationships with brands into account, we need to ensure that in 2016 meaningfulness is factored into AI.Without this,AI runs the risk of seeing us withdrawfrom physical experiences, ultimately resulting in a destabilized society due to synthetic robots taking over roles that should be carried out by humans. If your job demands creativity, social interaction, physical dexterity and mobility, consider yourselfsafe. Ifit doesn’t, beware of the robots!

  10. 10. Ad blocking has certainly hit the headlines since Apple introduced the abilityfor consumers to block ads on their iOS mobile devices. This is not something that’s about to disappear, even though the world’s biggest advertisers may want it to. While this undoubtedly signals a clear and present danger for paid and programmatic, it also represents an opportunity for native content, or "earned" me- dia, to come of age and occupy a more meaningful place in a communications plan. In 2016, branded content is poised to become the key beneficiary of emerging technologies that enables consumers to swerve marketing messages that are felt to be obtrusive or irrelevant. However these obstacles will be overcome, and let’s be clear, paid creative messaging that is smart and well targeted is still as potent a tool as ever. In the meantime, the door is ajar for branded or native content to seize the moment and become the MVP that many of us believe it has the potential to be. To do this, branded content needs to develop a sharper edge to its game. One example of this is the shoppable YouTube video Havas SE Cake UK created forVery.co.uk. This online retailer wanted to be the "go-to" brandthis past summer and raise awareness ofits fashion offering as well as championing its non-clothing departments. The agency devised the #Sum- mertime campaign; working with Universal Music Group to bring on board British hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks to recreate the iconic 90's summer anthem "Summertime." The video itself features Very’s clothes modelled by the artists, and viewers can click through to the full collection directly from YouTube. The result was a piece of great original content, mas- sive pick up on and offline, £1.4M in revenue generated via video viewers, with 45% of sales coming from first-time users ofVery.co.uk. For brands (and agencies), the focus in 2016 should be on creating meaningful content that people will genuinelywant to engage and interact with. Branded content capable of directly selling pro- ducts and services? Now there’s a trend that might just catch on… ADRIAN PETTETT CEO, HAVAS SPORTS & ENTERTAINMENT CAKE UK - @aepettett 17 18 AD BLOCKERS WILL BRING BRANDED CONTENT TO THE FORE AD BLOCKE 2016 - TRENDS PREDICTIONS
  11. 11. 2016 - TRENDS PREDICTIONS Discovering the benefits of intellectuAl prOperty 2016 will be the year when brands really begin investing in content creation and owning Intellectual Property (IP). Many advertisers believe that investing in content is more expensive and more complicated than the usual fare, however 2016 will show them that this is not necessarily true. Given that brands need to cut through the noise, the world of IP truly helps advertisers stand out and build increased and long-lasting consumer loyalty. The Lego Movie is a very powerful example, but let’s be clear, producing a Hollywood blockbusteris notthe onlywayfor brands to benefit from IP. There are many other opportunities available, from online content to TV programs. An excellent case in point is the choice made by the American restaurant chain Denny’s that wanted to rejuv- enate their 37-year old breakfast menu. Rather than changing the actual menu, Denny’s created playful cartoon food characters dubbed "The Grand Slams,"1 and for an entire year they regularly released their hilarious adventures online.The series was such a hit that it not only changed consumer perception of the menu, but it also made Denny’s a hot propertyworth partnering with. For example customers and fans of The Hobbit, were able to eat a Hobbit-inspired menu. The bottom line: in 2016 IP is goingtobeanincrediblypowerful way of engaging consumers, completely reinventing the relationship between them and brands.

  12. 12. HallYu 2.0/ Korean Content is taking Center Stage The Korean content wave, or Hallyu 2.01 in Korean, is a new term referring to the increase in popularityand influence of South Korean culture. Over the past 20 years, Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam and various other Asian countries have adopted Korean pop culture en masse. Today with Korean content having per- meated the Middle East, Europe and the Americas, Asian fans are following Korean superstars across the globe. The Korean creative industry has evolved as a result of globaliza- tion, with the first K-wave being driven bythe export ofTV shows, or “Korean dramas,” across Asia. Hallyu 2.0 however is being propelled by social media and advancements in multimedia and telecommunication tech- nologies. While Korean dramas are still gaining in popularity, the country has now emerged as a global leader in e-sports, anime (Japanese animated produc- tions) and music. This meteoric rise has occurred in part because both K-pop fans and e-gamers are now able to consume massive amounts of local content online without restrictions. This is thanks to video streaming sites such as Dailymotion and YouTube that continue to transform the way creative content is produced, distributed, and consumed. Seoul may only be the “Hollywood of the East” today, but in the next decade it just might take over... 1 Hallyu 2.0 is a term coined by the editors of the book Hallyu 2.0: The Korean Wave in the Age of Social Media, by Sangjoon Lee and Abé Mark Nornes.

  13. 13. 2016 - TRENDS PREDICTIONS ” 6 out of 10 people watch short videos on mobile devices on a daily basis. For your viewing pleasure original MObile COntent Thanks to the development of mobile networks and the improvement of overall mobile reception, 6 out of 10 people watch short videos on mobile devices on a daily basis1 . eMarketer estimated that more than 105M U.S. smartphone users watched videos at least once a month on their devices in 2015, representing 55.5% of the total smartphone user base and a 13.9% increase over 20142 . With this growing phenomenon, Europe, Africa and Asia are set to adopt the same practices. There are some basic reasons for this rise in viewers. In addi- tion to being a highly personal commodity, a smartphone is a highly addictive device; throw engaging content into the mix and this makes for a highly ad- dictive pastime! Sports clips, movie trailers and music videos are currently the most watched content, although semi-professional content such as tutorials, video blogs and viral videos are also racking up huge numbers of views. Watching videos vertically on a mobile phone has become the norm thanks to Snapchat and Facebook. Some great examples ofthis trend include a Californian production company that built a "vertical" kitchen film set fortheir cooking series, "Tastemade" on Snapchat Discover3 . In France, SAVE FERRIS (Havas) produced a digital mobile series called "FRAT,"4 making CANALPLAY the first subscription video on demand (SVOD) platform to offer this unique content. Last but not least is the promising development of virtual reality (VR) videos for Oculus Rift and lookalike VR headsets. This mobile content revolution is only just beginning, so keep an eye on 2016 when we’ll witness the birth of a plethora of origi- nal productions for our viewing pleasure. 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCv1GiuYgeo 2 eMarketer - http://www.emarketer.com/ Article/Mobile-Video-Challenges-Hold-Back-Advertisers/ 1012563#sthash.W7kd9wq4.dpuf 3 http://usat.ly/1OU1fuw 4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCv1GiuYgeo MANUEL ALDUY DIRECTOR OF CANAL OTT - @Manald1 24
  14. 14. THE AGE OF THE CONSUMER THE AGE OTHE AGE OTHE AGE O CONSUCONSUMERCONSUCONSU Consumers today engage with brands through multiple digital touchpoints, but the data that gets tracked is disjointed, there- fore making it difficult to follow the consumer’s online decision journey. We are totally immersed in the Age of the Customer; they are "always on," a reality fueled by the explosion of channels and multi-device usage, in addition to real-time based analytics that are able to extract and define multiple user profiles. This priceless data can then be referred to prospects or existing customers with real-time unified profiles that are actionable for marketing initiatives. Howeverfor this type of customer centricityto have a real impact and monetary value, we have to intelligently analyze, manage and categorize massiveamountsofdata,inorder to activate meaningful customer engagement experiences. So, how to make sense of all this data? How can advertisers better understand their cus- tomers? A profile engine can help in this respect. This robust technology gathers data about an individual’s online surfing and buying habits; it serves as both a record for marketing model building and real-time activation, from a real profile to a segment, and from personally identifiable informa- tion (PII)1 to non-PII which feeds data management platforms supporting programmatic buying engines. Both parties, the brand and the customer, benefit from this ecosystem. More relevant messages targeting the right audience will drive revenues up for brands, and in turn the customer benefits from content tailored to their interests. That being said, 2016 will see tighter collaboration between media and creative agencies in order to generate greater value between an owned, earned and paid environment. Media and creative agencies will need to team up in order to successfully deliver truly personalized ex- periences throughout the entire customer decision journey. This experience will be enhanced and intricately tailored to the customer, thanks to CRM data specialists that either sit on the media, creative or brand side. 1 Information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an indi- vidual in context.

  15. 15. DIGGING INTO DIGITAL /TRENDS CHRiSTEL QuEK BRANDWATCH | VP, SOUTHEAST ASIA @ladyxtel
  16. 16. TRENDS FOCUS: DIGGING INTO DIGITAL Messaging Apps: The Core Hub of Social Activity The rise of messaging appli- cations will dominate the social landscape in the next year. Presently, the top four messaging apps have eclipsed traditional social platforms such as Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn in monthly active users (MAUs). The current kingpins of the messaging landscape include WhatsApp (900M MAUs), Facebook Messenger (700M MAUs), WeChat and QQ Mobile (600M MAUs each), Viber (250M MAUs) and LINE (220M MAUs). The reason behind this is simple: messaging has become a core hub of social activity beyond the simple act of sending text messages in 160 characters via SMS. Messaging apps have now evolved into ecosystems for users to conduct payment transactions, consume rich- media branded content, partake in artificial intelligence and even play in-app games. The innovation in this messaging experience first started in Asia-Pacific. LINE, which has a stronghold in countries such as Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, was the first messaging app to introduce an in-app App Store amongst the messaging players in 2012. Since then LINE has continued to innovate at scale by allowing users to book taxis, listen to music, watch TV, make payments and play games within the application. In a similar way, WeChat, a Chinese messaging app, allows users to make grocery deliveries, track their fitness, apply for personal loans and even feature in-app commerce stores for brands. Not to be left behind, Facebook Messenger has achieved a growth spurt in 2015 thanks to its laser-focused strategywhich added new layers on top of the core messaging platform. This included the introduction of a Messenger App Store in August 2015, allowing users to install apps for photos (PicCollage, Pic Stitch), audio (Sound Clips, FlipLip Voice Changer) and GIFs (GIF keyboard) to provide a richer media experience. This was subsequently followed in September 2015 by the introduction of a Virtual Assistant “M” within the platform, an artificial intelligence feature which allows users to text “M” to ask for restaurant recommendations and make reservations. With the introduction of person- alized recommendations and increasing relevancy for users through machine learning, the monetization strategy through tie-ups with retail and small- medium businesses is huge. Think messaging is just about connecting with your circle of friends? Then think again. 2016 promises to herald even more exciting innovations in how users will use these apps as a hub for their everyday activity. 29 30
  17. 17. TRENDS FOCUS: DIGGING INTO DIGITAL DEvELopErS, take heed: hardware to capture software In 2016 developers will no longer be able to build businesses and monetize their in-app audiences as easily as before from just a simple app. Crucially user dis- coverability continues to be a huge barrier for developers, as cost-per-install for applications increases across advertising platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. In the meantime, while the sheervolume of applications available has increased (nearly double to 1.5M active applica- tions available in the U.S. App Store in 2015), the number of user downloads year-on- year (approximately nine app downloads per month) has not changed. With greater competi- tion and choice, increased cost in user acquisition and unchanged user habits, the landscape for developers who want to monetize their apps through App Store revenue looks bleaker by the year. Already more than half of the top 20 apps in the App Store globally including Facebook, YouTube, Facebook Messenger, Google Search, Google Maps and Instagram, do not generate any App Store revenue directly, but rely on monetization and building businesses outside of the App Store. To capture and retain an audience, ecosystems are being built off hardware with re-engagement and monetization through software. For example Xiaomi, a Chinese technology powerhouse, sells most of its devices at cost-price1 or makes very low margins off hardware to capture that valuable market share in China. Xiaomi is already China’s number two smartphone maker, with over 130M monthly active users and consumers who use their handsets 115 times a day. Most oftheir revenue is driven through their developer community, with improvements to their user interface “MiUI” and the Mi App Store. Xiaomi now makes a plethora of devices such as handsets, tablets, TVs, cameras and even air purifiers. Software is great for building audiences and distribution, but it takes a combination of both hardware and software to build a truly monetizable ecosystem for the long haul. Businesses such as Airbnb and Uber would not have achieved their unprecedented success today without the brokering of physical goods with distribution through software. 1 The cost price represents the specific value that represents unit price purchased. This value is used as a key factor in determining profitability. 31 32
  18. 18. TRENDS FOCUS: DIGGING INTO DIGITAL and in this corner... Facebook & apple take cues from each other in the ring “King Zuck” continues to be a shrewd investor in the development of technology. Mark Zuckerberg’s acquisition of Instagram at $1B was soon eclipsed by his acquisition of WhatsApp for $19B two years later in 2014. While Facebook is currently the king of the multi-app universe (Facebook Mobile, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger), Zuckerberg is making a bigger bet on virtual reality as the future, and in particular, immersive content experiences. Let’s recall his $2B bet on virtual reality by acquiring Oculus. The Oculus Rift headset might seem cumbersome and unfashionable to some, but it is in fact Face- book’s first step in finally owning a device that could allow users, potentially 1B of us, to connect with one another in the future. TRENDS FOCUS: DIGGING INTO DIGITAL It’s no surprise who Facebook takes its cues from: Apple, the most profitable company in the world. It has sold over 700M iOS devices since 2007, is responsible for over 9B photo uploads to the iOS photo stream, has built a formidable software ecosystem (capturing over 79% ofthe public sector enterprise market) and remains a brand users will pay premium for (more than half of new device activations on Christmas Day in 2014 were iOS devices). Apple has ventured beyond the Mac to create multiple operating systems, including the Apple TVOS, iOS, Mac OS and the WatchOS, and it’s only just the beginning. The TVOS could very well be the bedrock for a smart home, the iOS as the ecosystem in a user’s pocket, the Mac OS as the fundamental for the enter- prise software market (who would've thought that Apple and Microsoft could ever do a joint demonstration at an Apple event in 2015?), and finally the WatchOS as Apple’s first foray into owning your body as a "wearable" OS. The trajectories of these two internet giants can only continue. With Facebook making invest- ments in drones and internet coverage, and Apple quietly (or not so quietly) working on an Apple car, the future of tech- nology with such innovation will truly benefit consumers with more choice, convenience and excitement. 33 34

  20. 20. In 2016 we will see lifestyle and luxury brands and retailers develop integrated peer com- munities around their brands: the two parties will realize that brand-led peer-to-peerengage- ment yields closer relationships between the consumer and brand, with loyaltyand increased sales as the result. Developing a brand-led community requires active community management and a comprehensive program to encourage involvement and reward members. To date, the cosmetic brand Sephora has been a true pioneer. They have created a complete customer ecosystem that is omnichannel, with different tiers of customers who can interact with peers, sharetips and receive benefits based on their seniority in the Sephora community. Another great example comes from ASOS that created its "#AsSeenOnMe" platform. Here its community of fashion enthu- siasts can show off their ASOS purchases as well as buy new items, effectively recognizing its customers as its best sales- people and brand ambassadors. If we look at a totally different brand ecosystem, for example Rapha, the upscale cycling retailer, we see a smart example of how to foster and encourage community involvement. Rapha holds frequent events, classes and social interaction opportunities for members via its Cycle Club. They also have an extensive blog featuring brand-led content and contri- butions from its members with cycling information, art and design, photos and interviews. By drawing on what makes your brand special, you have the potential to engage with consumers on a profound level and be a part of their everyday lives through communities. The rewards, in terms of loyalty and sales, can be huge.

  21. 21. 2016 - TRENDS PREDICTIONS Co-CREATIONfosters Connections between Brands & consumers Today, the majority of consumers feel that brands should play a more active role in contributingto their well-being. However when asked if brands are indeed taking this role seriously, the majority of people saythat 61%haven’t quite caught on1 . So, how does a brand engage people in orderto drive a meaningful connection that will in turn drive business results? One of the most effective ways is by inviting consumers into their world. Encouraging consumersto co-create (where brands design and develop with the customer and not just for the customer) turns a group of people into a community of active partners in the process of innovation. In essence, co-creation engages the customer in the brand’s success thus changing the brand-customer relationship dynamic. The co-creation approach to brand innovation is a win-win model across many industry sectors. Dell IdeaStorm is a website launched by Dell where customers can submit ideas to improve the company’s products and services and vote on the ideas of others. Since launching, this platform has received about 18,000 ideas, and as a result more than 500 customer ideas have been implemented. In 2016 customer engagement through co-creation will lead to the development of new products and servicesthat better respond to customer needs. Most importantly, co-creation will foster an increased sense of belonging to something bigger, ultimately driving a more meaningful relationship between people and brands. 1 Meaningful Brands® - Havas Media Group, 2015 MARIA GARRIDO GLOBAL HEAD OF DATA & CONSUMER INSIGHTS, HAVAS MEDIA GROUP - @TheMariaGarrido 40 Encouraging consumers to co-create turns a group of people into a community of active partners in the process of innovation.
  22. 22. SOCiAL iNFLuENC AS Native FRANCHiSES Thus far, social influencers have only been addressed as an additional media channel to place ads. Current market valuation is in favor of Snapchat and Facebook rather than Shonduras, Snapchat’s first homegrown celebrity, or Logan Paul, one of the most famous Viners. A strong focus on in- fluencers bears the risk of being dependent on a single person to develop a business; but at a time when audience fragmentation is increasing, as is the landscape, is it really better to be stuck on a single platform? Whatever the wording du jour is, native content or organic marketing, the end goal is the same: to further blur the bound- aries between advertising, platforms and content. In 2016 no one will be in a better position to accomplish this than influen- cers. They are the newfranchises that generate the audience of major online platforms. They deliver the content and value. If brands want to be part of this conversation, as opposed to just following it, working with influencers through a struc- tured, consistent, and long-term strategy will be key. Top social influencers are already producing thousands of branded short-form content on social platforms, organically featuring products and services. Examples include product launches, mobile app development and serial- ized storytelling, all of which drive awareness with massive conversion rates - for example a viral campaign from Havas Sports & Entertainment for Coke around the Ubisoft and Just Dance partnership gathered 15M+ views. In addition, the talent discovery opportunity on these social platforms is widely underesti- mated, reinforcing the sustaina- bility of the overall model. Investing in top social platform talent opens the doorto an entire network of influencers, and one which goes beyond the U.S. Prime examples of this are the vines of Logan Paul, Cameron Dallas and King Bach, together with the other so far unknown talent sharing the screen.

  23. 23. 2016 - TRENDS PREDICTIONS The era of pushing products down the throats of the uninformed is over. Consumers aretoosmartandtoodiscerning when it comes to traditional forms of advertising content; nearly 200 million people are using ad-blockers, and those that don’t block will skip them1 . Morover, 69% of people say that content from brands has no meaning to them, and 50% statethatsomecontentactually turns them off the brand2 . From now on, it’s about story- telling, not selling. Stories have a meaning we can relate to, with the music stars of our age courting an audience of billions to prove the connec- tion. From YouTubers to legacy recording artists, where there is a story, there is a following. Brands will start to go beyond badging content and will collaborate with music artists and record labels to deliver stories with soul, reflecting the emotions and experiences that consumers crave. How will this be done? By understanding the values of brands and music, and placing them in the context of what consumers desire the most, brands will begin to communi- cate informatsthat are popular and easily understood. Stories told in this way will be shareable, and when aligned with iconic figures of popular culture they will be widely consumed, providing not just reach but also engagement and intimacy that past forms of advertising no longer deliver. Go native and get emotional, just like Jeep did in their "Living Like We're Renegades" com- mercial featuring X Ambas- sadors' hit song, "Renegades."

LOGIC OF PLAY When the fan has a strong desire to discover new songs, artists or genres, which they are likely to share with their community. LOGIC OF EXPLORATION When the fan relishes learning and under- standing the details about music, often expressing their strong opinions on music theory and various genres. LOGIC OF MASTERY When the fan mainly uses music to create or deepen relationships with a community of other fans or friends. LOGIC OF SOCIAL CONNECTION When the fan considers their fanship a sub- stantial element of their identity, associating music to their cultural origins or a time and a place in their life. LOGIC OF IDENTIFICATION LOGIC OF IMMERSION When the fan’s purpose (conscious or unconscious) is to enter a world related to music and lose themself in the emotion of the music and to think of nothing else but the music they are listening to. When a fan expresses an opinion to defend a musical taste and/or other music-related issues, like the reputation of an artist. LOGIC OF ADVOCACY When the fan enjoys the overall experience and atmosphere of music - a tune, a show or any content supporting the story around their favorite artist. LOGIC OF ENTERTAINMENT HAvas SE's LOGiCS OF ENGAgEMENT At Havas Sports & Entertainment, fans and passion lie at the heart of what we do. We strive to understand what makes a fan a fan, how they live their passions, and what drives their engagement with sports and entertainment. In 2014 we launched an extensive research project, FANS. PASSIONS.BRANDS (FPB), in partnership with the University of Southern California’s Annenberg Innovation Lab (USC) to look at fans more closely, ultimately helping us advise our clients about how to better engage with diverse groups and mindsets. We decrypted the passions of 21,000 people across 16 countries, spoke to football fans in Rio during the FIFAWorld Cup 2014, and collected and analyzed over 9M tweets thanks to our partner IBM. In 2015 we turned our attention to music which, perhaps unsurprisingly, proved to be consistentlythe number one passion point around the world. The result? A new framework to understand fan behaviors, attitudes and perceptions called the Logics of Engagement and in the case ofmusic,the introduction of the Shuffle Age1 . We applied these same logics (see right) to our review of the top 5 trends predictions in 2015, and also to our favorite brand engagement campaigns to see how they would fare and gauge if brands recognize the power of these triggers when engaging with current and/or future fans. An interesting key finding that came out of our second year undertaking FPB, is that although the logics are music focused, they’re broadly relevant in the context of most passion points. Our 2015 music study unearthed a new logic, that of Exploration, however the other seven are consistent with our 2014 findings. Check out the featured campaigns to see how brands, consciously or not, are leveraging the logics of engagement for maximum brand storytelling and relationship building. 1 Havas SE's FANS.PASSIONS.BRANDS 2015 Music Study - Read the press release: http://bit.ly/1NdqCJa - Check out the infographic: http://bit.ly/1PVYjzu - 2014 Football Study press release: http://bit.ly/1qJ84SA 2015'S TRENDS REVIEW & BEST CAMPAIGNS 2015'S TREND REVIEWS & BEST CAMPAIGNS 4847

  27. 27. 2015'S TOP 5 TRENDS REVIEW Last year we predicted that storyliving would flourish in 2015, and flourish it did. A whole host of brands and marketers turned to immersive experiences and virtual reality (VR) in order to satisfy customers’ appetite for the unexpected, unusual and all- encompassing thrill. Concerning the rise in VR stunts, in 2015 Nike launched films that allowed fans using Google Cardboards (a VR headset) to watch a football game through the eyes of the world-famous football player, Neymar. Similarly, AIG used video technology to allow users to feel like they were on a rugby pitch alongside the All Blacks as they performed the haka, their legendary pre-match ritual. On the immersive experiences side, Paramount Pictures brought a Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation scene to life in the streets of Hollywood where fans had to replicate Tom Cruise’s film stunts. In a similar vein, the authorJames Patterson created the world’s first self-destructing book, physically taking literature from storytelling to storyliving (see next page). iMMERSiVE EXPERIENCES W H AT ’ S T H E S T O R Y American author James Patterson, the first to have sold more than 1M e-books worldwide, came up with a very ori- ginal way of promoting his new book Private Vegas; the ini- tiative challenged readers to finish the book within 24 hours. " W E L C O M E T O A N E X P E R I E N C E T H AT W I L L B L O W Y O U R M I N D " - 1,000 James Patterson fans were selected to read an advance digital copy of his new book. A digital platform was created which allowed readers to follow each other’s reading progress. - The digital experience included an ominous page burner that destroyed every page after being read, and story related animations scared readers throughout the book, all of which led up to the grand finale of the book’s self- destruction. S U C C E S S - The campaign earned 419.8M impressions. - Private Vegas became a New York Times bestseller. - The campaign won a 2015 Webby Award. W H Y W E L I K E D I T We thoroughly enjoyed this innovative activation which in a unique twist, given the digital age we are in, awarded the ultimate prize (the book itself) to the traditional reader, reminding us that often old school is best!

  28. 28. 2015'S TOP 5 TRENDS REVIEW In 2014 we predicted that the use ofdataforcontentcreationwould put fans at the very center of the entertainment experience. With more than 30% of companies reportingtoAdobethattargeting and personalization became a priority in 2015, it would appear our predictions were correct. The increase in gathering of consumer data has allowed brands to gain essential customer insights, ultimately increasing the success of brand activations. For example, TAM Airlines gave their passengers a personalized on-board magazine which they had created using passengers’ Facebook data. In a similar vein, Axe Brazil, a men's cosmetic brand, created a video which could be programmatically served in 100,000 different variations depending on user’s interests which had been previouslycollected bythe brand. Thanks to data analysis we can create great content; an interest- ing manifestation of this is the web series Entre Panas created by SABMiller’s Colombian beer brand “Poker” (see next page).

  29. 29. 2015'S TOP 5 TRENDS REVIEW variety is the SPice Of Festival Life Last year we said that the in- creasing diversity of festivals would lead to a greater number of brands, notably luxury brands, integrating themselves within the festival experience. Luxury brands have indeed become a part of the festival conversation, regardless of whether they are a sponsor or not. Take Coachella festival for example where renowned artist, TheWeeknd, took overAlexander Wang’s Instagram account for the first weekend of the festival, and also the American luxury de- partment store, Neiman Marcus, that published a "howto dress at Coachella" guide. This year, the focus for sponsors and festival organizers has been on providing festival-goers with first-class experiences. Pro- duction companies such as Red Frog "are bringing in a service mentality that treats music fans as customers,"1 andfestivals such as Rock in Rio and Summerfest have invested in Vegas-worthy VIP spaces. We also predicted that the op- portunitiesfortechnologybrands to tap into festivals and connect with affluent consumers through rich product engagement would grow exponentially. Hungarian telecom service providerTelekom 4G, seized this opportunity in an inspiring way, launching Festival Buddies – bots enabling digital users connected on a dedicated platform to interact remotely with festival-goers (see next page). 1 Forbes Magazine, 2015 W H AT ’ S T H E S T O R Y Telekom Hungary's Telekom 4G, sponsor of the famous Hun- garian music festivals Sziget and Balaton Sound, wanted to illustrate the reliability of its 4G signal even during crowded events, as well as engage fans at the festivals and those at home who couldn’t attend. “ T H I S I S S O C O O L ; A N Y O N E C A N J O I N " AT T E N D T H E F E S T I V A L F R O M A N Y W H E R E I N T H E W O R L D " - Thanks to a tablet embedded in the head of a bot (see photo), users online could interact with people at the festival by chatting, instructing the bot to squirt water at someone or even giving fist bumps. - The bots, shaped as cool humanoids, were carried on the shoulders of "buddy guys" – the same way festival-goers carry a friend on their shoulders – facilitating the interaction between online users and festival attendees.

  31. 31. 2015'S TOP 5 TRENDS REVIEW Last year we said that 2015 would see a boom in campaigns centered on "people focused" ini- tiatives in Asia, and sure enough, this continent has experienced a surge in campaigns which put people and their needs first. InthePhilippines,Previewfashion magazine empowered women to defend themselves with the clothes and accessories they wear. In Pakistan, MoltyFoam, a bedding and furniture brand, created The World’s First BillBed, which saw billboards turn into mattresses for the homeless at night. The success of these campaigns highlights the impor- tance for brands to be authentic in their approach if they want consumers to buy-in. These "marketing for people" campaigns have boomed in the most Western part of the Asian continent, especially in Turkey, where Samsung launched a video call center for the hearing impaired and where Vodafone created an app to help Turkish women suffering from domestic violence (see next page).

As a result, Nacional Monte de Piedad, a nonprofit Mexican pawnshop, set out to shed light on this issue while improving children’s lives through one of the most popular forms of media for children – comic books. Sensus, the first ever comic book that could be read by blind and sighted people, was written by Jorge Grajales, a visually impaired Mexican writer and illustrated by Bernando Fernandez, a famous cartoonist. The comic book was written and illus- trated like a standard comic, thus exten- ding the comic book’s reach to sighted people as well. Sensus was distributed in comic book shops, bookstores, and in a pop-up store that travelled around the country. For each of the 3,000 comic books sold, a pair of glasses was donated to a visually impaired child living in poverty. The comic book is innovative with a strong social impact, helping and entertaining the visually impaired. - Over 500 comics were sold in the first 20 days and all 3,000 copies within 2 months. - It generated $16.5M in earned media. - The campaign won a gold award at the Festival of Media LATAM, a silver at the Clio Awards and a silver at the Mexican Effie Awards.

The harshest fans received a call from Neil’s fake assistant mistaking them for a journalist and inviting them to pick up VIP tickets for Leinster’s Champions Cup quarter-final match. The bold fans, pretending to be jour- nalists, went to pick up the tickets but they were actually led to a press conference with Neil Back, where they were prompted to ask him questions, much to their shock. A fun way to surprise and reward witty fans who were ready to take advantage of the mobile number leak, effectively bringing Heineken’s spon- sorship with Leinster to life in a unique and memorable way. - 125,000+ views on YouTube. - 500,000 views across all social networks within 48 hours of the video being released. - 1.5M online media impressions. - #RunWithIt was the number one trending topic in Ireland on the day of the video's release.

For parents however it’s not always easy, particularly when it comes to getting their kids to put on sunblock. To counter this, Nivea Brazil created an engaging way to help children under- stand the importance of using sunblock. Nivea teams targeted Rio de Janeiro’s beaches to give away UV-sensitive dolls to children and parents. When exposed to the sun without pro- tection, the doll’s skin would turn bright red, mimicking what would happen if sunblock was not applied. When the child applied sunblock to the doll, the redness disappeared. Despite a campaign which interrupted children’s playtime, Nivea managed to produce an engaging and innovative approach which ensured participation from this young audience. The campaign won several awards, notably a Cannes Lions and a Clio.
