90% of Americans are online and are constantly raising their voices about brands they love and hate. Not only do they like Facebook pages of their favorite brands, they also tweet about their favorite TV shows. If analyzed right, digital voices of consumers can help accurately measure the impact of multi-channel campaigns in real-time. This report represents one such analysis. This report looks at the consumer decision journey across channels and uncovers some startling truths about Moto X and its competitors in the way their campaigns influence consumer buying decisions. The report also looks at the extent to which product innovation messages by Moto X are helping reinforce their brand and how the effectiveness of their messages compares with their competitors. Finally, the report provides expert views on why certain consumer behavior was observed and possible recommendations for Moto X to improve its cross-channel strategy going forward.

By analyzing consumer voices of brands, CrowdANALYTIX can help brands get an understanding of: 1) the overall awareness of their brands; 2) the drivers of purchasing behavior; 3) how they compare with their competitors; and 4) how to accurately attribute contribution of each offline and online channel in driving brand awareness

Consumer Engagement Levels

Level Definition
Consumer considers purchase based on user reviews, friends recommendations, television ads, airport banners, etc


Consumer Engagement Level


Consumer evaluates the product by visiting retail stores, watching product demos on you tube, etc
Consumer buys product, shares his early experiences online, signs up for product update newsletter, talks about his in-store experiences Comments on blogs, talks about television ads; comments on official facebook posts; retweets official tweets




Writes blogs about products; eagerly awaits new product releases; initiates content about your product that starts getting viewed by several of his followers

IMPORTANT: the levels of engagement above do not necessarily represent a gradual progression of all consumers. Some for example might never become advocates or evangelists of your brand. Whats important is to know whether you are able to segment your consumers based on the level of their engagement and if you have a strategy to drive awareness at each of the above levels

Overall positioning of different players based on their level of customer engagement and their ability to reinforce their product innovation messaging
Key Observations

Moto Maker campaign contributed ~50% to its brand reinforcement

Performance of Moto X in influencing consumers at different levels of brand engagement

Brands are highly active in marketing themselves and capture the mind share of the customer. In this relentless pursuit to become the most preferred brand, they consume several methods to monitor the ROI of their efforts. The methods that are more prevalent than others are primary research, focus groups, digital media monitoring tools etc. All these methods provide insights in bits and pieces; however marketers today want a comprehensive picture of their efforts. To circumvent this issue, we have analyzed how the customers are interacting with the brands at different steps in their journey of pre-purchase decision making and post-purchase brand evangelism.

This sort of analysis is useful for marketers because it clearly helps them understand those critical points when they wowed their customers or perhaps lost them to their competitors.

Effectiveness of Campaigns in reinforcing their brand differentiation

Brands run multiple campaigns at the same time trying to keep a mix of both offline and online campaigns. Campaigns have been progressively transformed from being a broadcasting tool to a decisive factor in establishing long term relationship with consumers. Billions of dollars are spent each year in establishing the brand connect and the expenditure is only going to increase. Understandably, onus is on the marketers to justify the value of the campaigns. Keeping the customer engagement cycle in view, the effectiveness of the campaigns will be analyzed. The brands will come to know which of the campaigns driven by them as well as the competitors, had more clout than the others.
