Cricket leads YouTube ads leader board

MUMBAI: In the first quarter of 2015, the ICC Cricket World Cup was the most important event for advertisers in India. More users are now on the internet, social media commentary actually drives live entertainment, and the matches are played both on and off the field across the internet.

Users lapped up campaigns built around cricket. Gillette’s ‘The best a fan can get’ was the most watched campaign on YouTube, followed by the ‘Mauka Mauka’ campaign.

The UGC around ‘Mauka Mauka’ garnered 10 million views, thus highlighting the power of YouTube as a platform that can amplify the reach of a campaign through endemic content.

So, how can marketers capture users’ attention during big cultural moments in the digital world? The top campaigns show that users love content built around things that they are passionate about. When these big sporting moments occur, a marketer wants to be there for the people, helping them have the time of their lives before, during and after the game.
