Digital Opps: Home Depot to continue mobile, search investments


Subject: digital, social media, mobile, search, TV, event, sponsorship

Company: Home Depot (HD), the largest home improvement retailer in the US.

Opportunity: In the Q1 earnings call, CEO Craig Menear said that, due to recent successes, the company would continue to invest in digital, mobile and search channels.  HD is currently working to further connect its in-store and online experiences, and will also continue to leverage digital marketing capabilities to “more effectively” target customers. All of this continues as the US housing market continues to recover and grow (for both existing and new homes), making consumers more likely to purchase home products (countertops, windows and water heaters had a particularly good Q1 for Home Depot). Look for HD to shift more money away from TV and toward digital, social, mobile and event/sponsorship marketing in the coming year.

Additional Insight

National TV Spend: According to iSpot.tv, HD spent $230.6 million on measured media in 2014. The most money was spent to air ads on CBS, ABC, HGTV, NBC and ESPN during programming such as “College Football,” “NFL Football,” “Good Morning America,” “House Hunters International” and “Criminal Minds.” TV spend has been down so far this year, as HD has only spent $50 million (compared with the same period 2014 when spend was $72.1 million).

While strategy doesn’t seem to have changed much (HD still advertises heavily around college football, HGTV and CBS shows), it is interesting to note that the company’s spend on Univision has increased, putting the channel as the third highest for network spend.

Digital Breakdown: Per Moat, Home Depot has run 686 standard display ads on 7,282 publishers so far this year. HD has also run 46 video ads on 666 publishers.  Top ad destinations for HD include lifestyle, reference, food, sports and local paper sites such as marthastewart.com, hgtv.com, monster.com, diynetwork.com and foodnetwork.com. 2015 digital buys have increased significantly in late Apr. continuing through mid-May, which mirrors buys from 2014, which were heaviest in Spring/early summer (home improvement season).

When compared to its largest competitors (Lowe’s, True Value and Ace Hardware), Home Depot carried the largest digital SOV in 2014. Across all publishers, HD’s SOV is 73.9%, while Lowe’s is only 18.5% (across Top 100 publishers, SOV rises to 87.4%).

Native Advertising: According to Gawker.

Sponsorships: According to IEG, Home Depot spends between $30 – $35 million on sponsorships annually.  Sponsorships include ESPN’s College Game, Major League Soccer, the Mexican National Soccer Team, the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, the San Antonio Spurs, Memphis Grizzlies, LA Kings and the Staples Center, as well as Atlanta-based sponsorships such as the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks, Philips Arena and the Georgia Aquarium.

Agency Relationships: According to The List, 22squared handles social.
