Given the rise of micro-influencers, Mavrck is challenging 64 of the top national consumer brands in a tournament to figure out who has the most engaged and influential fan base on social. Our annual Brand Madness Tournament has been appropriately named due to the March Madness mania of millions of fans who are cheering for their favorite players, alma maters, or the under dogs. Here, fans are able to score points for their favorite brands via their votes, posts, and influence on social media. Which brand has the strongest team of influencers? It’s going to be an exciting March, so get ready for the madness that leads up to the Big Dance.
We narrowed down the giant pool of CPG brands to just two main conferences with four divisions each. With a wide range of scale, revenue, and social media presence, the ultimate break down includes the Food Conference’s Divisions with Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Dessert, while the Household Goods Conference holds Home, Family, Health, and Beauty divisions. See which brands win their way out of their brackets with the most influential fan base!

Our CPG Brand Madness Tournament includes three different ways to score for your favorite brand. We start by analyzing each brand’s presence on Facebook as an indicator of that brand’s influence. From there, it’s up to you. As the brand’s most active consumer advocates, you have the ability to earn points for your team as far as your influence allows. With the power of content and social media, you have the power to score for your favorite brand to reach the top.
