TikTok new AI rules

Transparency is becoming more and more crucial as digital content creation develops.

AI-generated text, photos, and videos are getting more and more traction as marketers try to find unique ways to differentiate their content from the competition.

The absence of a label identifying the usage of AI-generated content might occasionally mislead viewers.

TikTok is the first social media platform to label all video and image content created by AI, by partnering with the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA), a project that supplies resources necessary to identify AI-generated content.

The new watermark will be generated using the C2PA “Content Credentials” technology to identify AI images and videos uploaded to the platform.

The watermark will be applied to content generated outside of TikTok and then reposted onto the app, giving consumers the ability to precisely identify the source and reliability of the information they watch.

The decline of Newspaper circulation

The last decade has changed how people consume and can access news, with a move away from print and towards digital, the rapid acceleration of mobile technology and social media platforms has contributed to the shift in behaviour.

As a result, news publishers are now forced to diversify to survive, as circulation income from newsstand sales and print advertising has considerably decreased.

Newspaper circulation in the UK has been declining for years, seeing a year-on-year drop in circulation of more than 10% between 2022 and 2023. For further comparison, expenditure on newspapers fell from over £9.9 billion in 2005 to below £2 billion in 2022.

The Sunday Times – 322,000

The Times – 180,000

Daily Telegraph – 190,000

The relationship between Broadcast TV and Ad recall

We recently read a case study by Think Box that explored the relationship between Broadcast TV and ad recall, here are some of the key takeaways:

Television screens are seen to drive 60% greater ad recall than ads seen on a smartphone or tablet, and 34% more than those seen on a computer.

Right in-home advertising can increase recall by up to 6.3 times.

The living room was the best spot for increasing ad recall with 22%, the highest of all other rooms in the house. Overall, the living room was 176% better than the kitchen at driving advertising recall, and 10% better than the bedroom.

The influence of shared settings whilst watching Broadcast TV is highlighted by the fact that when an advertisement was seen with others, such as when watching series or television dramas, ad recall increased by 23%.

Every night there are nearly 5 million conversations about the ads on commercial TV

These findings conclude that despite the decline of broadcast advertising, it is proven to be a great social medium that still brings people together and still gets adverts talked about.

Christmas TV advertising

Christmas advertising

A record-breaking £9.5 billion is set to be spent on advertising this Christmas season, almost a 4.8% increase from last year’s £9 billion spend.

The highest-performing media formats for Christmas advertising in 2023 are BVOD increasing by 20.2% and OOH increasing by 22% compared to 2022.

However, Traditional Television advertising remains the top media format in 2023 with a predicted £1.5 billion spent on advertising during this year’s golden quarter

Nearly half (48%) of all adults praise Christmas advertisements for helping to spark gift ideas, whilst 70% of young adults (16-34) find them to be a mood booster.

Public approval of John Lewis 2023 Christmas advert + Christmas 2023 adverts

The most anticipated Christmas advert release each year is John Lewis.

This year John Lewis brought ‘Snapper’ The Venus Fly Trap to our screens, drifting away from the renowned emotional and sentimental adverts we’ve seen in the past.

More than half (55%) of the British public, compared to an astounding 96% last year, said they “love” this year’s John Lewis Christmas advertisement,

‘Snapper’ was ranked just 68% for positive sentiment; However, the strength of that negative coverage boosted social media activity which generated 106m impressions, 3,248 messages, and 17,928 engagements.

Positively speaking, 40% of the population thought this year’s advertisement was “funny,” and not ‘emotional’ making it John Lewis’ funniest Christmas commercial since the 2018 Elton John advert.

Surprisingly, Aldi’s ‘Kevin and The Chocolate Factory’ was a great hit with a range of audiences, providing a score of 93% positive sentiment; the advert gained significant reach with 1,652 messages, 2,773 engagements on X/Twitter, with 17m potential views.

Similarly, this year’s Amazon ad scored correspondingly with 17m impressions and 1,696 messages, but also scored highly on sentiment with 93%.

McDonald’s 2023 Christmas campaign “Fancy a McDonald’s this Christmas” is the brand’s highest-scoring advert with 4.1 stars since its 2017 advert “#Reindeer Ready” which achieved a rating of five stars which only 1% of Christmas ads achieve.

Faux Out of home

A new trend is emerging in the constantly changing world of digital marketing that is grabbing attention and challenging our perceptions of what is genuine and what is not.

Faux Out-of-Home (FOOH) advertising is increasing in popularity, more brands are now following the trend of creating ‘realistic’ OOH campaigns that are actually CGI-generated; providing a powerful avenue for imagination, however, there are moral considerations.

One example of FOOH advertising is Maybelline’s Sky High Mascara; a viral video showcasing their ‘new OOH campaign’ where London underground trains and London buses iconically wore eyelashes, demonstrating the benefits of the mascara formula as well as the bending wand technology. At the time the video was released to social media, it was not made clear that the OOH campaign was created using CGI and therefore misleading consumers.

McDonald’s is one of the brands to recently jump on the trend with a festive FOOH campaign. The campaign is called ‘Festive wins’ featuring a fleet of festive baubles driving through London’s Oxford Circus and bursting McDonald’s burger boxes outside the Bullring, Birmingham, and celebratory Christmas crackers along the Royal Mile in Edinburgh.

FOOH’s creativity is completely unhindered by reality, budget, resources, and media formats; therefore, it has the potential to go ‘viral’ on social media and drive brand awareness and engagement.

Since deceiving customers seems to be the key to faux out-of-home success. The allure of Barbie’s enormous doll, Maybelline’s eyelash tube promotion, and Jacquemus’ giant bags would have undoubtedly been ruined if a disclaimer revealing the CGI origins had been included at the time of publication.

After reading a FOOH feature on the Drum, we found it interesting that JC Decaux’s Chief Marketing Officer, David McEvoy has reported on the topic. McEvoy promptly emphasised that in spite of the significant volume of FOOH sightings recently, the problem has really been there for some time. Pointing out that even before digital adverts, you’d often see television ads featuring billboards, street furniture, or bus shelter panels, proving that the creativity wasn’t genuinely used in the out-of-home environment.

Brands wanting to create CGI campaigns must approach with caution, as it could jeopardise consumer relationships as well as brand reputation.

TV advertising

Television advertising continues to be an effective and impactful method of advertising, TV-focused campaigns outperform those without by 35%; below are some reasons why traditional advertising should remain a part of any marketing mix:

  1. Wide reach

TV advertising has a vast-reaching audience as well as the capacity to quickly and frequently connect with a wide range of demographics. The average UK resident is expected to see around 40 TV adverts daily, reaching as many as 70% of the population in a single day (Improve Marketing 2023).

TV adverts are often aired repeatedly, and your brand can be seen multiple times in a single day. The combination of repeated visuals, audio, and storytelling can create a long-lasting memory for a single viewer and for wider audiences. 3 or 4 repetitions of one TV commercial are sufficient to keep a viewer’s attention (Themediaant 2022).

  • Complementary advertising

TV advertising is seen to be complementary to many other forms of media, a multi-media approach with the same campaign can significantly amplify brand presence. TV and Digital have a significant connection, TV advertising has been shown to increase the visibility of digital ads as well as organic interaction (Improvemarketing, 2023)

  • High ROI

TV advertising has the highest ROI of any media, generating an average return of £1.79 for every £1 spent, accounting for 71% of all advertising revenue (Thinkbox, 2022).
