They realised that it is necessary to adapt to a constantly evolving consumer, which was the leading motivation to embark on this pioneering project; offering help and services through audiovisual content within an interactive multimedia environment.

In order to make this project a reality, Nestlé asked Telefónica to provide a WebTV solution, which allows the front end to be designed by their agency OgilvyOne. Telefónica suggested the WebTV solution of streaming technology partner Flumotion due to its powerful WebTV media back office as well as Streaming Platform, which ensures optimal delivery to every user.

Online video presents a unique opportunity for global consumer brands to reinforce their branding strategy on the Internet. Apart from the millions invested in traditional advertising channels, multimedia content can now be used to communicate and interact directly with consumers, at the fraction of the cost.

“A lot of big brands still have to leverage the branding potential of online video that is why many are considering allocating budget for WebTV. As consumers dedicate more time online and overall budgets continue to be reduced, online video is being recognised as a powerful and cost effective branding medium”, explains Flumotion CEO Jean Noel Saunier.

Nestlé TV aims to create an emotional relationship with consumers and build an enthusiastic user base around their brands. Nestlé TV offers a range of channels that touch on personal and domestic issues such as baby care and cookery classes, while throughout relating these issues to Nestlé products. This not only provides entertaining content, but also enables Nestlé to precisely measure the popularity of content and brands among their online viewers.

Successful brand communication involves all target audiences, all media channels and all environments. According to Intent Index 72% of people go online just to become part of a community. This reinforces the rewarding opportunity of building social communities around brands and establishing a long lasting relationship with the final consumer without the need for intermediaries.
