Vivaldi Partners, a group of three companies that includes a strategic consulting firm and an “organizational change” company, rates social currency on six attributes: affiliation, identity, information, conversation, utility, and advocacy. The firm reviewed and analyzed campaigns coming from across Europe, the Americas, and Asia over the past three years.
To sum it up, Vivaldi says: “Social currency is achieved when consumers: share a video, an image, a blog post, a tweet, or a thought about a brand.”
Whoa, then Tim Tebow must have the most social currency of any being, living or dead. I swear if I had to read one more tweet about that guy even before the Denver-Pittsburg upset, I was going to implode.
But, back to the list. Reading through this list of campaigns that comprise the rankings, it’s obvious that the super-connected and digitally-savvy are taking over.
Domino’s took a campaign to Facebook game Farmville. Fiat got drivers to collect data about their driving using a USB app for economic and environmental analysis. Levi’s launched a search for a “Levi’s Girl” online. And IKEA, in one of the highest-ranked scores, four out of five, encouraged customers to “friend” an IKEA showroom manager on Facebook.
