Budget allocation for paid media among major auto brands. GRAND TOTAL
BrandTotal says it anatomized” all paid and organic social juggernauts from Toyota, BMW, Ford, Audi, Honda, Nissan, Infiniti, Tesla, Lexus, Honda, Cadillac and Porsche in theU.S. for a 30- day period.”
The results indicate that Facebook gets the captain’s share of automotive advertisements. YouTube, still, is no couch potato, taking a third to nearly half the budget for brands like Honda, Ford, Cadillac, Porsche, and further than half for Audi, at 54 percent.
Instagram captures a significant share of the automotive announcement spending as well, with Infiniti, Porsche, and BMW spending 30 to 40 percent of their digital announcement budgets on the meet social network.
Twitter, on the other hand, doesn’t fare so well.
Cadillac and BMW are the only automakers to spend a significant bit of their announcement bones on Twitter, with only BMW in double integers, at 20 percent.
Interestingly, Volkswagen and Nissan spent the biggest gobbets of their budgets on Facebook. According to BrandTotal, they pushed 100 percent of their juggernauts on Facebook, completely ignoring the other major social platforms.
Why is Facebook so popular?
perhaps because its druggies are old.
“ Facebook reigns supreme for paid juggernauts among these four digital channels for major motors, ” said Alon Leibovich, co-founder & CEO, BrandTotal. “ Our data shows that when brands are looking to engage the aged cult, they lean on Facebook to do so, while YouTube and Instagram are substantially used to reach the youngish cult. ”
While Tesla has zero paid juggernauts, they’re active on organic social.
Tesla had over two million organic engagements, especially on Instagram where 55 percent of its social exertion passed. Tesla’s also big on Twitter, at least organically, with 11 percent of their exertion on Twitter. CEO Elon Musk, of course, is an active Twitter stoner with over 26 million followers.
“ Strong brands are suitable to command high engagement indeed without a robust digital announcement spend, ” said Leibovich. “ In Tesla’s case, we see their engagement figures are high compared to other bus brands allocating spend in their digital juggernauts. This may be a result of Tesla’s suckers formerly being engaged and active druggies on Twitter and other platforms. The brand doesn’t feel the need to spend on paid social media marketing when its organic reach is so strong. ”
Although, one might argue that with Tesla’s last quarter results the company might want to engage in a little paid exertion to stimulate deals.
