From Single to Multiple Marketing Roles Gatorade

Digital media creates huge opportunities for real-time
data gathering

But this potential is inconsistently used and monitored by brands. Gatorade has taken a stand on the importance of live digital conversations and performance with the establishment of its
‘Mission Control Center’
at the heart of its HQ.

The center acts as a physical war
room for monitoring the brand’s performance online

The center boasts six monitors providing data visualization. Most famously, the center monitors online discussions about the brand on social media, but it also carries out proactive social media outreach and monitoring of the sports landscape as well as tracking brand attributes, media performance and sports trends. Closely following sports results and news keeps Gatorade on top of the conversations that fans are having and able to anticipate trends.

Concrete outcomes of Mission Control include everything from site optimization, to extending a 60-second ad tune into a full-length track available for download in 24 hours, in response to heavy discussion of the track on social media.


Gatorade aims to move from
being the largest sports brand in
the world to the largest participatory brand in the world, and its Mission Control set-up equips it with the
all-important flexible consumer-centered mindset that will position
it to achieve this goal.
