Your Sales Figures Are Now Diamonds!

I'm On A Horse!

Follow-up on the awesome Old Spice social media experiment from Adfreak:

The applause for Old Spice’s incredible YouTube blitz this month hadn’t even died down when critics started panning the effort as ineffective.Rushing to judgment, some bloggers cited 52-week sales figures from before the video responses launched as a sign that Wieden + Kennedy’s efforts were underwhelming. Contrarians jumped on these early reports as a chance to bash clever social media stunts in general. But now the numbers are in, and it’s hard to argue that this campaign doesn’t just smell like a man; it smells like victory. In her new analysis of the Old Spice video push, Adweek’s Eleftheria Parpis has this summary: “According to Nielsen data provided by Old Spice, overall sales for Old Spice body-wash products are up 11 percent in the last 12 months; up 27 percent in the last six months; up 55 percent in the last three months; and in the last month, with two new TV spots and the online response videos, up a whopping 107 percent.

Monocle Smile!
