Outcome

Statistically, Employee of the Month was the most successful video operating on INFINITI’s Global YouTube channel with 90K total engagements across all platforms, 1.1 million video views across all content pieces (including over 700K views on YouTube) and 7.1M total unique reach. The video gained 11.48% attention rate with $4.4M Estimated Media Value and 3m10 average view duration (109% more than the whole INFINITI YT channel). With the hero video delivered only through the Global YouTube channel, the markets employed page post links on their social pages to distribute this content to the International audience. Combining that with distribution to various trade media outlets, traffic from social and traffic from external sources, users had plenty of opportunity to come across the content.

This traffic amounted to 12% of the total views achieved by the main video. 3.5% of those views came from Facebook alone. Finally, in September, the Singapore market joined the rest of the regions in adopting Employee of the Month – qualifying as one of the best campaigns ever on INFINITI channels, Employee of the Month was also one of the ‘Top 5 most-watched videos of 2019’ in the Sport Industry’s TV section.
