Global launch of The Loop

Mindshare makes Adaptive Marketing in paid media a reality for clients with global launch of The Loop and enhanced partnership with Twitter.

23 April 2014, London, New York, Singapore:  Mindshare, the global media agency network, is helping clients to make collaborative and adaptive decisions and across their paid, owned and earned marketing in real-time, with the global launch of The Loop – a data infused ‘war room’.

The Loop, a physical room and also a cultural change in working practice, is already operational in the US and further ‘Loops’ will be installed in Austria, China, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, Turkey, the UK and the agency’ s Worldwide office in London. To help power collaborative marketing decisions using The Loop, Mindshare is leveraging its existing partnership with Twitter to provide Twitter Live Studio services for select clients in Loop markets.

Nick Emery, Global CEO, Mindshare, said: “The Loop is different because it’s about cultural change not data trawling.  It drives a change in working practices that in turn drives behavioural change, both for our clients’ consumer relations, but also how we work across client agency networks to create one focussed team working adaptively, reacting live and seeing trends ahead of the competition.”

The Loop has two modes – ‘strategy’ and ‘campaign’.

In ‘strategy mode’, The Loop enables collaborative and adaptive decision making through the mixing of fast and slow data across a spectrum of different disciplines, including business planning, strategy, creative and communications planning, and across client agency networks. 

In ‘campaign mode’, Mindshare takes third party data feeds and tools and combines them with industry leading proprietary media spend, performance tracking and intelligence systems, to provide instantly actionable insight that can be executed in real time across paid media, all backed up by the power of Twitter data.

The Loop is also used to track competitor efforts in paid, owned and earned media, as well as providing intelligence on trending and viral news, videos and pictures; enabling instant decision making at the speed of the zeitgeist.

The first tool of its kind to impact not only earned and owned, but importantly paid media, The Loop enables clients not only to plan more adaptively and to benefit from more collaborative and adaptive decision making powered by data, but it also enables the shift of media spend quickly to leverage opportunities uncovered by real time data during campaigns – a holistic process Mindshare calls Adaptive Marketing. By focusing on paid media, which drives owned and earned media, and by bringing together every discipline and stakeholder into a collaborative decision making process, The Loop delivers a core part of the modern marketing arsenal, without which clients can be out of step with today’s fast paced consumer lifestyle.

The Loop includes multiple screens monitoring data from over 100 sources in real-time. Data partners are defined on a market by market basis. In the US launch market, data partners include, but are not limited to:

  • Ace Metrix – Measures effectiveness for every ad, in real time, by bringing digital technology, analytics, and speed to TV and digital video commercial reporting.
  • Moat – Real time digital advertising intelligence platform that provides insights for advertisers, publishers, and vendors in the digital advertising ecosystem
  • Curalate – Measures earned and owned interactions with a brand’s visual assets across social channels to identify imagery that resonates with consumers allowing brands to optimize social engagement, deepen brand loyalty, and drive revenue.

The Loop has already been successfully deployed across Mindshare North America, with clients including Unilever and Jaguar taking advantage of the ‘war room’ to plan and optimise their Super Bowl advertising investments.
