CAMPBELL, Calif., Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --CrowdANALYTIX
(http://crowdanalytix.com/) today shared a report from their recent study of
top smartphone brands -- Motorola Moto X, Samsung Galaxy S4, Nokia Lumia 920
and HTC One, and their multi-channel marketing campaigns, both online and
offline. Over a duration of three weeks, consumers' voices were analyzed
across several public data sources and their decision journey traced at every
step in conjunction with each brands' marketing campaigns. Aravind
Venugopalan, Director- Solutions, CrowdANALYTIX says that "These insights
represent the collective wisdom of several hundred independent data experts
and are therefore not skewed by biases of any one."

The report shows that Galaxy S4 was unchallenged at the top and had 6 times
more customer engagement as compared to Lumia 920, the lowest among these
brands. One finding says that Galaxy S4 had 20 times more success as compared
to Moto X in influencing customers to evaluate its brand via online campaigns.
Interestingly, recent unofficial reports claim that, despite good reviews and
heavy promotions, only 500,000 odd Moto X units were sold in its first 5 weeks
which was 1/20 of what Galaxy S4 achieved within a month of its launch.
Popular reasons aside, this study cites the lacklustre impact of Moto X's
marketing campaigns, online campaigns in particular, as a cause for the
failure. The report shows that of the total impact that Moto X campaigns had
in influencing their prospective buyers to evaluate their product, only 2% was
contributed by online. Even with Offline Campaigns, HTC's campaigns were 8
times more influential than Moto X's in getting customers to share their
experiences with others. The most appalling of all findings for Moto X was
that Samsung Galaxy S4 was 150 times more successful in using online campaigns
for deeper bonding with existing customers. Motorola, it seems, has at least
one thing to cheer about as buyers of Moto X phone were most vocal about the
brand's 'Make With Moto' and 'Lazy Phone' campaigns, with Moto Maker campaign
alone boosting the brand reinforcement by nearly 50%.
