The SMBER analysis covers the social media buzz from the period of 1 January, 2011 to 31 December, 2011 for 400 brands in India. Samsung Mobile Phones is top-of-mind for consumers discussing the Android platform in social media. Samsungâs large following on social media platforms gives it a âbuzz shareâ of 36 percent.
Speaking on this, Kanika Mathur, President, Digitas India said, âI am really pleased that stringent metrics have been used to analyse the social presence built by brands. We had to use several methodologies to gain leadership in social media for Samsung. Building properties and conversations around android was one method which we thought would engage our target audience actively on the web. At Digitas we believe itâs important to first âlistenâ to customers and then create engagement platforms.â
Aman Malhotra, Senior Manager â Digital Marketing, Samsung India Electronics Pvt Ltd. also commented, âI heartily thank Digitas India for making Samsung no. 1 on social media by choosing the right platforms for our activities and creating the right strategy that was directly linked to the business objectives. It is overwhelming to see the customersâ feedback and our endeavour is now to reach out to more masses and build a strong brand network.â
To further strengthen its presence in the digital space, Digitas has recently inducted Tim Guillois to lead social media in India. Tim GuilloisÂ has joined from Paris, where he was working for Blogbang- Publicis Groupe. His induction will definitely boost Digitas India's social mediaÂ offerings.
