The insights generated by this programme are widely used by the Sony marketing community for marketing planning purposes. This includes both major advertising campaigns and global trade shows. But we also use the insight for tactical activities and guerrilla marketing activations against key competitors. An important element has been the flexibility of the program, while continuing to offer a consistent global picture.

  • Analysed global social media performance across paid, earned, and owned social
  • Provided in-depth competitor analysis across multiple channels
  • Developed success benchmarks for retail partner performance


Sony Mobile tasked us with providing a global picture of the media landscape for the company, its competitors, and the wider sector. This spanned paid media analysis to provide much-needed visibility on competitor comms, integrated with owned channels. A significant part of the brief also related to earned media analysis of consumer sentiment and conversation, evaluating how
well Sony and its competitors – principally Apple and Samsung – were getting their messages across.

The brief also included elements of compliance measurement, through monitoring partner media spend and point-of-sale displays, to ensure that Sony was receiving sufficient support from its network and retail partners.
