NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/13 -- MediaBrix, the only end-to-end, in-game social and mobile advertising solution for Fortune 500 marketers, today announced that it is working with Honda to create an immersive mobile social gaming advertising campaign as a part of the 2013 Honda Civic launch. The campaign will harness the power of interactive social gaming advertising as a way to appeal to the Honda Civic target audience, reaching them on Facebook, mobile and tablet games. Additionally, the campaign program will begin this Sunday, Feb. 10 in order to drive awareness among social gamers who love music and trivia.
Honda is the first automotive company to work with MediaBrix and launch a fully integrated, immersive and interactive advertising experience within SongPop, a popular social and mobile game with over 60 million players developed by FreshPlanet. Honda is also the first automotive company to feature a branded playlist on SongPop, which includes music by the featured artist in the Civic commercials. Through the Music Awards Mix branded playlist, Honda will become an integral part of the gameplay, reaching the large, dedicated SongPop user base.
This breakthrough social gaming experience is part of an integrated advertising campaign supporting the 2013 Honda Civic and bringing attention to the spirit of Honda -- a passion for innovative thinking and continuous improvement. Three Civic models (Sedan, Si Coupe and Hybrid) will be featured in the social gaming video ads.
As part of the social gaming campaign, Honda playlists created on the mobile and tablet apps and the Facebook game will be shared on users Facebook Timeline, extending the reach of the campaign. Honda will drive users from the SongPop social gaming campaign to its official site to drive awareness to and educate users on the 2013 Civic models.
"Honda recognizes that rather than interrupting the user experience, they can reach consumers through social gaming advertising, which adds value, heightened levels of engagement and brings any event to life," says Todd Bowman, CRO, MediaBrix. "Today social mobile gaming has surpassed what television and other forms of digital advertising can offer. MediaBrix has seen campaigns that have outperformed automotive online normative averages by 9x. That's why launching this campaign on SongPop -- the top ranked game of 2012, is perfect."
The power behind this campaign is MediaBrix's SocialFusion and SocialFlex products. SocialFusion delivers a scalable, exclusive integration to Honda. MediaBrix's SocialFlex product offers Honda an immersive brand engagement unit that fits seamlessly into the user flow of SongPop.
Honda offers a complete lineup of cars and trucks through a network of more than 1,000 dealerships in the United States. In 2013, Honda marks 40 years of the Civic model, with more than 30 years of producing automobiles in the region, which began with the Accord in Marysville, Ohio in November 1982. Having produced more than 25 million vehicles in North America through 2012 using domestic and globally(1) sourced parts, Honda currently operates 14 major manufacturing facilities in North America, producing a wide range of Honda automobiles, all-terrain vehicles, power equipment products, engines and transmissions.
