Introduction
In the last part of the twentieth century, marketing has emerged and expanded in many ways. The
world has experienced service marketing (Zeithaml & Bitner, 2000), business-to-business
marketing (Mudambi, 2002), social marketing (Andreasen, 2006) and
and management (Shu-
pei Tsai, XXXXXXXXXXEven with the mass expansion, marketing still keeps its function in every
usiness, which is “directly connected to the company’s long-term performance” (Karlícek, &
Drábik, 2012) and
and value. In the globalisation era, marketing in every business is harder
and much more challenging (Oana & Zvan, 2009), it pushes companies to seek new channels
online, mostly on social media. The most favourable channel in recent years is Facebook because
of its effectiveness and cost-saving.
Even though there is a lot of information about Facebook marketing, there is no research on the
co
elation between video content in Facebook marketing strategy and
and value. This paper
will investigate the concept of Facebook marketing, video marketing, the co
elation between
quantity of videos shared, quantity of interactions, quantity of shares on Facebook and the
and
value of top 10 Australian companies. The existing literature review will be critically analysed
and fields of future research will be presented to show the research gaps in the existing studies.
Conceptual framework
Facebook marketing
According to Kaplan and Haenlein (2010), social media is a group of Internet-based applications
uilt on Web 2.0 which “allow the creation and exchange of User Generated Content”. In more
simple terms, it is the source of online information that is created by any one, either consumers
or companies (Mangold & Faulds, XXXXXXXXXXSocial media comes in many forms: forums, email,
ating websites blogs, and social networking websites (Mangold & Faulds, XXXXXXXXXXIn these social
media, the most popular one is Facebook. According to the Facebook report second quarter
2017, there are more than 2 billion monthly active users in 2017 (Menlo, XXXXXXXXXXBecause it is the
most visited online social network and has the most number of users, companies use it as the
channel to show advertisements and deliver
and’s messages. Facebook marketing is considered
a big part of promotional mix and integrated marketing communications strategy (Mangold &
Comment [SM4]: RQ: This is a key
element and this student almost
ushes it under the table – this is not
good and it really needs to be much
clearer and readers must be able to find
it easily.
Comment [SM5]: Ideally, you have
a reference to some published work
that has said exactly that as well (e.g.
in their ‘areas of further research’
section) to really solidify your claim.
Comment [SM6]: Be careful here –
you are meant to propose a research
project, not deliver the final report yet.
Comment [SM7]: Direct quotes need
page references.
Comment [SM8]: REF
Faulds, 2009).
Video marketing
Video marketing in the digital marketing context is “all uses of video contents to promote a
and, product or service” (Bertrand, XXXXXXXXXXVideos can be used for many purposes, including
advertising, showcasing products and services, and educating. These videos will be played on
TV, big screen of the stadium, or posted on websites, YouTube and Facebook’s fan page. With
the growth of Internet, bandwidth has expanded and video consumption has increased
significantly (López-Nores, Blanco-Fernández, & Pazos-Arias, 2013).
With the growth of Facebook and video consumption, companies started using video content in
their Facebook marketing strategy. There are three variables which marketers usually concern
with: number of videos, the number of reactions and number of shares. The number of reactions
is the number of people showing that they like the videos, the number of shares is the number of
people
inging the video to their profile pages (Kim & Yang, XXXXXXXXXXBoth variables are
important in measuring the effectiveness of the videos.
Brand value
Brand value (also called
and equity) is “a set of assets and liabilities linked to a
and, its name
and symbol, that add to or subtract from the value provided by a product or service to a firm
and/or that firm's customers” (Aaker, 1991, p.15). It means that the
and value can be assessed
from two perspectives: the customer and the firm. In recent years,
and is no longer just a
symbol of the product or service, it is becoming more important in defining the whole marketing
mix and company wealth (Koch & Dikmen, 2015)
Even though there is a lot of research on Facebook marketing,

Literature Review
The advent of digital platforms and technologies have aided in building the parallel na
ative for inductive doctrines wherein the focus lies in seeking for convergence amongst sectors, transforming the functional silos in the organizations using customer centric opportunities for even collaborating with the competition in the manner of developing co-operation focussed mind-set, co-ownership for investments by way of alliances / franchisees to aid scalable form of growth by way of lower levels comprising asset intensity, establishing relationships amongst the newer generation comprising customers who are inter-connected as well as involved within the co-creation of the services / products as well as the longer term orientation concerning the continuous form of learning by way of feedback for effectively improving overall delivery models for customers (Church & Oakley, 2017; Zhou et al., 2017; Hoffmann et al., 2014).
Retailers were faced with two different options over the ways they had responded towards these digital opportunities (Church & Oakley, 2017; Zhou et al., 2017; Hoffmann et al., 2014). The majority of the retailed have noted digital in being the enabler for effective forms of customer service, or else, increased operational efficiencies as well as have thus implemented various digital technologies for enhancing their respective performance over these various parameters (Church & Oakley, 2017; Zhou et al., 2017; Hoffmann et al., 2014). The said approach can be noted to be an incremental form of response towards the opportunities enabled by digital as well as noted to be driven primarily on account of the lower risk propensity in allocating the scarcer resources towards what could be the fundamental form of disruptor concerning business models of the retailers (Church & Oakley, 2017; Zhou et al., 2017; Hoffmann et al., 2014). Although, there seem to be smaller portion of the retailers who had truly leveraged over the possibilities offered by the digital platforms. These retailed have used digital in being the opportunity for shaping the longer term and sustainable form of business model that represents departure as against the conventional models (Church & Oakley, 2017; Zhou et al., 2017; Hoffmann et al., 2014).
The integral element to the digital approach concerns the standpoint of overall eco-system of retail in the form of network comprising suppliers as well as franchisees that support concerned central actors, that is, retailers, to orchestrate the business model using longer term objectives to maximize the lifetime value of customers as well as not being solely focused over the transactional approach (Walsh et al., 2016; Sullivan & Hyun, 2016; Rigas et al., 2017). These fundamental tenets concerning the approach refers to the collaborative form of mind-set wherein the concerned retailer shall be first amongst other peers within wider network and who shall invest in various capabilities and infrastructure concerning the overall network in being agile as well as responsive towards the needs of consumer. The attraction, acquisition as well as the retaining of the shoppers shall form a shared objective concerning the overall network as well as digital technologies aid in understanding the needs of consumer like cognitive aspects, offer greater form of assortment like for example visual merchandising, aiding the shoppers to decide like virtual trial rooms, lowering cost like process automations and robotics, increasing loyalties like using blockchain and enhancing the customer service like for example AI based systems for self-learning (Walsh et al., 2016; Sullivan & Hyun, 2016; Rigas et al., 2017).
Though, the overall risk lies in viewing digital solely by way of the prism involving the technology investments (Walsh et al., 2016; Sullivan & Hyun, 2016; Rigas et al., 2017). In its core for digital with respect to any of the retailer lies the wider ability for building the overall culture involving collaboration, capabilities concerning the use of data for
eakthrough organizational as well as functional boundaries, overall approach to use the technology for unearthing newer possibilities to enhance the customer value as well as in this process reimagine completely a sales experience for the future (Walsh et al., 2016; Sullivan & Hyun, 2016; Rigas et al., 2017).
In this context, luxury
ands have an unique position. Leading form of luxury
ands specifically within fashion domain are established over exclusivity that up till now have meant to be minimal form of online digital presence (Walsh et al., 2016; Sullivan & Hyun, 2016; Rigas et al., 2017). Yet the dependence of shoppers over the internet as well as digital platforms — and slowing sales in luxury — haver pushed higher end of concerned retail market in reconsidering diving towards the digital. In adopting digital proficiency can provide significant value for all of them. Luxury retailers could employ digital proficiency in reaching their respective target consumers in a direct manner, as well as expand their overall audience towards customers who shall in other case struggle for finding them (Walsh et al., 2016; Sullivan & Hyun, 2016; Rigas et al., 2017). Their consumers shall enjoy increased levels of access towards some of the highly beloved
ands. In the same manner, for the investors, the online engagement of
ands with the luxury shoppers shall mean increased levels of robust sales as well as newer avenues towards growth by which the companies shall maximize their respective digital investments (Walsh et al., 2016; Sullivan & Hyun, 2016; Rigas et al., 2017).
The higher end
ands continue in prefe
ing for interacting at an in-person level amongst their respective shoppers (Miralles et al., 2016; Walsh et al., 2017; Karanges et al., 2018; Mosteller & Mathwick, 2014). The exclusive form of white-glove based service have conventionally formed part of an experience which various customers shall prize while they are shopping specifically for the luxury products, ranging across any products. However it has to be noted that over 60 per cent of the sales in luxury good are at present noted to be influenced digitally meaning that the shoppers have either undertaken online research as well as bought them in a store, shopped within the store yet purchases online, or else, purchased online directly as per various analysis undertaken by the studies (Miralles et al., 2016; Walsh et al., 2017; Karanges et al., 2018; Mosteller & Mathwick, 2014). Brands which have initiated over their respective digital journey have started seeing results already. To take an example, traffic of the site as well as sales with respect to higher end apparels, fashion, etc. company have enhanced after the re-launching of increased user-friendly websites in recent times (Miralles et al., 2016; Walsh et al., 2017; Karanges et al., 2018; Mosteller & Mathwick, 2014). It is further added that the
ands taking aver omni-channel (offline / online) approach which shall fuse the
ick and mortar stores to that online retail, like that of exploring the digital form of promotions for in-store form of products or else offering options of click & collect towards the customers who shall buy the same online and also pick the same in the local store, shall in addition most likely experience boost with respect to the store sales (Miralles et al., 2016; Walsh et al., 2017; Karanges et al., 2018; Mosteller & Mathwick, 2014).
The digitalizing of the business shall not happen in a short period and also not very simple. The development of digital competence refers to a process that is multiyear which requires an organizational form of change (Miralles et al., 2016; Walsh et al., 2017; Karanges et al., 2018; Mosteller & Mathwick, 2014). The adoption of the cross-divisional as well as company level digital strategy could be costlier, as well as requires the cultural form of openness in undertaking the business in a different manner. The investors hope in riding the overall wave concerning the digitalization of luxury
and could track the progress of company across four different proven areas concerning digital competency and shall involve [i] hardware comprising the luxury
ands required in having suitable supply chain as well as the fulfilment of the infrastructure in serving their respective customers across each stage over the process of buying (Miralles et al., 2016; Walsh et al., 2017; Karanges et al., 2018; Mosteller & Mathwick, 2014). They shall in addition need to be able in adjusting their respective supply chains towards their responses based on seasonal data, [ii] software in terms of the fact that as they shall grow and expand their respective digital initiatives, the
ands shall require scalable and flexible form of software which shall support the omni-channel processes. The updating of the respective software capabilities shall be easier and cost-effective based on the approach used (Miralles et al., 2016; Walsh et al., 2017; Karanges et al., 2018; Mosteller & Mathwick, 2014).
Research Aim & Questions
