Why Draw Something Blew Up, but Might Fade Fast | Trend | Scoop.it

Draw Something's success isn't as random as it might have first seemed, but is the game due for a stumble?

Thirty-five million downloads. Over two billion pictures. Millions of dollars in revenue. Draw Something is officially the hottest video game out there. While these numbers are impressive, the truly unbelievable thing is just how fast it all happened. Draw Something launched on February 1 – not even two months ago.

Research: Where will Australian marketing dollars be spent during 2013? | Trend | Scoop.it
The recent State of Digital in Australia 2013 report, produced by Econsultancy and Marketing Magazine, has revealed some interesting stats around the use of offline and online marketing channels and highlights which online channels marketers are...
Mike Spencer's insight:

When it comes to offline marketing channels, printed media, live events and direct mail remain the top preferences, with 71%, 70% and 61% of client-side respondents saying they use these channels, respectively. 

Following behind were television (47%), outdoor display (46%), radio (46%) and telemarketing (21%). Of these,television has seen the more significant increase in usage, with a 7% rise in use by marketers during the last 12 months. 

Online preferences seemed to primarily favour channels that are cost effective, measurable and offer a visibly high return on investment.

Email is the channel most-used by both client-side and supply-side marketers, with usage of 91% and 88% respectively.

SEO and off-site media were also very popular with both sets of marketers, followed by paid search and online advertising.

AIMIA AIMIA Releases Eighth Annual Australian Mobile Phone Lifestyle Index

AIMIA AIMIA Releases Eighth Annual Australian Mobile Phone Lifestyle Index | Trend | Scoop.it

Each year the AMPLI report includes a special topic in addition to its core set of questions. This year’s topic was the ‘Impact of Tablets on Mobile Phone Use’.

38 per cent of respondents reported they owned a tablet, representing a substantial increase from last year’s figure of 16 per cent.
An additional 33 per cent of 2012 Survey respondents were planning to purchase a tablet within the next 12 months. Interestingly, when looking back at last year’s report, results suggest that most of the 2011 “planned” purchases translated to actual purchases and ownership in 2012.
Based on these results the forecast for tablet ownership is 50 per cent by December 2012 and 71 per cent by mid-2013.

Global TV viewing on the rise | iapi blog

Viewers across the world are spending an increasing amount of time watching television, a new study has found. According to the One Television Year in the World Report by Eurodata TV Worldwide, which monitors TV watching in more than 80 territoriies, the average daily viewing time across the world stood at three hours and 10 minutes per person a day, representing an increase of six minutes over the last five years. “2010 was a successful year, especially in Europe,” said Jacques Braun, vicepresident of Eurodata TV Worldwide. “The inclusion of new modes of consumption in the measurement, global sports events and the development of multiple narrative universes via different media have all served to reinforce the power of television.”

Across all the territories covered by the study, Europe and North America registered the greatest increases in comparison with 2009, with an extra six minutes for Europe to three hours 48 minutes, and an additional four minutes for North America to four hours 39 minutes. The study found that with only two hours 34 minutes spent on average, the Asia-Pacific zone has considerable potential for growth driven by new behaviours and new technology.

Among these new behaviours, time-shifted viewing is helping to drive the increase in viewing time across the world, and audience measurement companies are increasingly taking this into account. In Belgium and Ireland, for example, where it was included in Eurodata’s measurement for the first time in 2010, daily viewing time grew by 10 and 11 minutes respectively when compared to 2009.

The report found that big sporting events of 2010 boosted TV consumption across the world. In February 2010, during the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, the daily viewing time rose by 36 minutes in Canada and 22 minutes in Denmark, in comparison with February 2009.

The FIFA World Cup also reached new heights, notably in Spain where daily viewing time was 14 minutes higher in July 2010 in comparison with July 2009.

For the first time, entertainment came out on top among the genres most present in the top rankings, ahead of fiction. Entertainment represents on average 40pc of the 10 best audiences by country across 70 territories, against 39pc for fiction. Eurovision appears among the top rankings in 16 countries, followed by Got Talent in 12 countries, Strictly Come Dancing (nine countries) and X Factor (six countries).
