How Brands Get Benefited With Instagram Stories?

Posted February 21, 2018 by Abhishek Pandey @ 7:06 am

While designing ads, a marketer should always make sure that the ads will catch eyes of their targeted audiences. As we all know that social media plays a vital role in catching eyeballs and ever since Instagram launched Stories in 2016, the feature spread like wildfire. In November 2017, Instagram Stories topped 300 million daily users. Instagram Stories offer social marketers a great opportunity to reach a higher number of people by taking advantage of one of the fastest-growing social networks.

According to the reports, Instagram Stories have encouraged users to stay on the platform for a longer period and visit it more frequently. Users under 25 spend more than 32 minutes per day on Instagram, while those in the older age groups spend more than 24 minutes a day on the Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network. As a marketer, you have very less time to show your product or service to the users while making sure that your story covers all that you want to show your targeted audiences. So how would you want them to see in your product? Here is how you can get started:

Take advantage of interactive polls

Last October, Instagram launched a feature that allows users to add interactive polls to their Stories. These polls are a fun, frictionless way to get your audience engaged and hear their thoughts on any and all topics. According to the recent report, influencers and brands alike have seen a boost in Instagram Live and Stories engagement using interactive polls since the feature’s inception. With the help of Instagram Insights, you can track engagement per post or entire feed activity per time period.

Value of Instagram Takeovers

Instagram takeovers are fast, easy and fun ways to grow your following by building a mutually beneficial relationship between you and another influencer for a 24-hour period. It provides a great avenue for expanding your audience. Imagine the possibilities. For your business, you can choose any employee for a “day in the life” story or your partner to swap stories for the day. This will keep your customers to keep coming back to your Stories.

Use Instagram Story Ads

In January 2017, Instagram had launched its Stories ads feature with big brands like Nike, Netflix, and Airbnb. However, it opened the feature for all businesses including small and big by March. When designing your ads, it is important to catch your targeted audiences’ eyes instantly as photo ads last only for 10 seconds, while video ads last for 15 seconds. Therefore, you have to ensure that they get the message in the first few seconds of your ad so that they can decide to take action immediately after. If you are planning to try a photo ad, make sure to use a bright, bold photo with clear branding and simple messaging in order to give a clear message about your brand to the user before the ad runs out.

Instant Take on Insta Stories

Insta Stories are relatively new medium across all social media platforms, so there’s no better time than now to begin capitalizing on all they offer. This year, include some Insta Stories to your social media marketing strategy to get a good boost in the business.

Pinterest Helps eCommerce Business To Grow

Posted February 19, 2018 by Abhishek Pandey @ 6:50 am

Without having to pay for Google or Facebook Ads, if you can drive more traffic to your website it would enhance your business. These days, social media is one of the best ways to drive more traffic to your website without paying high and is a great influencer to influence users with its popularity. There are a plethora of social media platforms available today; however, there are few platforms that help business to grow and increase their brand image without budgeting much on the paid marketing. Except for Facebook and Twitter, Pinterest is one platform that increases your brand name instantly.

In fact, the industries that align with the most popular Pinterest categories, and in turn could benefit the most from Pinterest traffic, are craft and hobby companies, flowers, food, drinks and gifts, and apparel companies. With half of all Millennials in the U.S. and 68% of U.S. women between the ages of 25 and 54 using Pinterest, it’s definitely a social media platform worth investing time in. So read on to explore more of the ways for being Pinterest’s user base.

Keywords Is the KEY In The Visual Search Engine

It’s essential to remember that Pinterest is essentially a visual search engine, and in order to rank higher and appear in people’s searches, you need to use relevant keywords in the image description. Similar to the strategy you use to increase your website ranking, you require keywords to rank on Google, likewise, your images require descriptive keywords within Pinterest as well. “Be smart and strategic while creating pins and using keywords.


Make Boards Based On Your Product Categories

Pinterest users love the organization, they are creating virtual bulletin boards after all. You can appeal to users by keeping your own account neatly structured and create a board for each product category you sell or want to promote. For example, if you sell apparel, you may want to create a board for each type of clothing, such as dresses, skirts, tops, etc. Or create a board for the latest fashion trends, such as midi skirts or metallics. This will allow users who are potential customers for each category to easily follow and share the boards they are most interested in.

Increase Reach Through Group Boards

If you aren’t getting a lot of pins or new followers, perhaps you need to go to where other users are and share your content there, at least until they start coming to you. Group boards are a great place to share your content and get a lot of eyes on it. You simply need to search and request access to group boards that align with your brand. Once you are accepted, you can share your content with large pools of people.

Plant-based wellness blogger Chelsea Williams uses this tactic to increase her reach and has had a lot of success with it. “Although I only have about 500 followers on Pinterest, my account averages over 16,000 monthly views. Pinterest has been a tremendous help; I use group boards to increase visibility,” says Williams.

Schedule Pins At Peak Times

Using third-party platforms to stay on top on your pins and to post at the most beneficial times is another way to increase referral traffic. “Tailwind allows users to schedule pins, similar to Buffer for Twitter, at peak times. This helps users get more eyes on their pinned content. Tailwind provides analytics and access to group boards, also known as Tailwind Tribes,” says Williams.

Allow Users To Buy Your Products Without Leaving The App

In today’s digital business landscape, everyone wants everything accessible and fast. Instant gratification has never been more in demand. That’s why buyable pins are a great option for e-commerce businesses; they allow users to go through the payment process within the platform, making the purchase process seamless and efficient.

Food For Thought

What’s wrong in enhancing your business without paying to Google or any other platform? So, follow the ways that have mentioned in this article to enhance your eCommerce business with the help of Pinterest. Hope this post helps you!

Interesting Ways Through Blockchain Could Transform Digital Marketing

Posted February 15, 2018 by Abhishek Pandey @ 3:11 am

As the world is turning into a digital, so is the digital advertising market is growing rapidly. In 2017, the surprising rise of the cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin was in the trend which keeps coming in the first week of this year. When you hear cryptocurrency, the first thing that comes to mind is blockchain as many millionaires and billionaires have observed that this technology could transform markets instantly as it offers transparency and efficiency to the advertisers.

Most of you know that blockchain is the technology that supports Bitcoin; however, many of you are still don’t know that blockchain has a huge potential to disrupt and resolve issues persist in marketing and advertising sectors. This defines that this tech seems to have a tremendous power to transform digital marketing industry.

Here are some ways through which this technology could change the digital advertising:

Targeting And Engagement

Many advertisers have invested a huge time and efforts on the ad platforms they have worked upon just in finding the right methods and acquiring data that enables them to deliver the right message to the right user and that too at the right time, which results in the action. For instance, BitClave envisions a Consumer Activity Token that a consumer earns by adding their data to the blockchain. When a search is made through BitClave’s decentralized search engine, the businesses that are willing to reach to them will compensate them.

Data Management

Data management is the spine of the digital advertising. From measurement to targeting, the participants who acquire data have an advantage over those who don’t. It’s not at all surprising to know that some participants are looking at the blockchain technology ways that could address data-related issues and challenges. An example to give you a clear idea on it- last year, Comcast had announced that it is developing a Blockchain Insights Platform aiming at improving the efficiency of premium video advertising in order to have a better planning, targeting, execution and measurement on across all the screens.

Fraud Prevention

Ad fraud is one of the most common and the biggest concerns among advertisers. Unfortunately, it is not possible to stamp it out as the digital ad ecosystem has become more complex and opaque in recent years. Although, the major Ad vendors and publishers are after IAB standard Ads.txt which is still not perfect.  Some sellers are tricking publishers to adding them to their Ads.txt files; however, Ads.txt doesn’t tell the type of inventory a particular seller is authorized to sell, which opens the possibility for a vendor. For instance, adChain, a smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain that maintains and stores a record of a publisher domain names that are accredited as a non-fraudulent.

Buying And Selling

The most intriguing part of this application is to use the blockchain to enable publishers and advertisers to buy and sell directly or with fewer intermediaries. It is not required to mention that the blockchain based smart contracts could effectively automate every aspect of the delivery and payments easily.

Food for Thought

As after going through this post you must have understood the ways that could benefit advertisers. Hope you like this post.

How Facebook Help Publishers?

Posted February 14, 2018 by Abhishek Pandey @ 6:31 am

Facebook is quite in the news these days as the Facebook executives defended the recent controversial changes to the types of stories that appear in users’ feeds, acknowledging that the company is staking out a “very clear point of view” on some things but not all the questions that are taking rounds these days.

Facebook has no problem weighing in on things like hate speech and sensational news, the company insisted. “Those are areas where I think it’s appropriate for us to have a point of view,” said Adam Mosseri, the product executive in charge of Facebook’s most valuable real estate — the News Feed — said. “But I do think that there are other areas where it would be really inappropriate to have a point of view, given our scale” — like a political ideology.

Mosseri spoke Monday from Recode’s Code Media conference in Huntington Beach, Calif., alongside Campbell Brown, the former NBC anchor who Facebook hired in January to manage its relationship with news publishers.

Here are the ways Facebook said it’s trying to help publishers:

Soon, Facebook is adding a News section to its Watch tab, where users can view original videos. Brown predicted it would be a popular destination for “big, breaking news moments.”

Facebook has settled a dispute with Apple that prevented the social network from launching a subscription tool for publishers on iOS devices.

Facebook has lowered the meter on its paywall — the point at which Facebook asks the news reader to go to the original publisher’s website — to five articles.

Facebook would not rule out paying publishers for content, with Brown saying that she would “never say never to anything.”

But Facebook’s latest change to its News Feed algorithm and its move to rate the trustworthiness of news outlets raises a lot of other questions. The company has started to prioritize posts from regular users at the expense of posts from brands and publishers. CEO Mark Zuckerberg described those posts as “crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.

Brown and Mosseri had some nuanced answers to how Facebook would be evaluating publishers. Brown said Facebook is okay with having a point of view if it means “leaning into the quality news,” as well as elevating local media, “broadly trusted publishers” and niche websites that have expertise.

For Mosseri, he added, “We have values and we have standards,” adding that his team is focused on what he calls “the integrity effort.” But he also made clear, Facebook will never make a judgment on any entity’s ideological or political point of view.

And about the company polling its users to find out what they consider trustworthy, Mosseri said, “This is not a popularity contest. We’re looking for trust by a wide range of people.”

Learn How To Protect Your Privacy On Social Media Channels!

Posted February 8, 2018 by Abhishek Pandey @ 11:36 pm

Social media accounts help you share your daily life with friends; however, the mobile apps can go further than that by automatically alerting your friends that you are online, reading a message, or even your nearby location. If you don’t want your nearest and dearest to know what you are up to every minute of every day, as a general rule, try posting less frequently on the social media platform. Your photos, check-ins, and text updates can convey more information than you intend. Beyond that, here’s how to tweak certain key settings on your apps to leave a smaller digital footprint.

Turn Off Your Activity Status

Many social apps will show your friends a notification when you are online, and even when you’re offline, they can display the last time you visited. If you’d rather not broadcast your presence, many social networks will let you turn off this display.

Turn off read receipts

When you are trying to preserve your privacy, one-on-one messaging options let you stay off the social media radar while still keeping in touch with your friends. To preserve your privacy, first turn off read receipts, those notifications that let your friends know when you’ve read their messages.In the Facebook Messenger and Snapchat apps, you can’t turn off read receipts, but sticking to individual chats in apps will preserve your lurker status better than posting on public social media networks.

Stay off the map

Social media apps can use your current location to feed you relevant ads and alert you about nearby events; however, there is one thing that most of you are unaware of it that they can also broadcast your whereabouts. This feature you might want to turn off if you want to protect your privacy from your friends.

Facebook also shares your location with your friends. To disable this feature, tap the menu button (three horizontal lines) on the right-hand side of the screen. On Android, your next step is to pick Account Settings; on iOS, choose Settings, followed by Account Settings. Either way, follow up by tapping Location, selecting Nearby Friends, and setting the main toggle switch to off. This will prevent your friends from looking up your current location or getting alerts when you’re in the area.

These networks can also attach your location to your status updates. On the bright side, Facebook and Twitter make it easy to avoid oversharing: They will only reveal your location if you specifically tap the location-tagging button while composing your post. Still, it’s worth double-checking your message before you post, to make sure you’re not accidentally revealing too much.

Limit the audience

To use social media networks without broadcasting your presence, we’ve discussed sending direct messages to a few contacts rather than posting updates for all of them to see. In addition to that method, Facebook lets you limit the audience for your updates on a post-by-post basis.


Whenever you are drafting an update, tap the audience selector button just under your name—it will probably say Friends, but it might have another label, depending on the default audience for your posts. Once you tap it, you can limit who will be able to see this update: Simply select More followed by Specific friends. This lets you hide your update from most people on Facebook while still adding to the News Feed of a few select contacts. Hope this post works for you well, if it does, do share your feedback with us in below comment section.

Internet of Things (IoT) into Travel Reaps Customer Satisfaction

Posted January 29, 2018 by Abhishek Pandey @ 7:35 pm

Travel remains one such field to have been impacted by the Internet of Things (IoT) but some late innovations have put this field into consideration for future installations. One such innovation was carried at Marriott International in the Irvine Marriot Hotel located in Orange County, California, where an Internet-connected mirror within a shower to tap the ‘Shower-Thoughts’ of its resident, an idea that people’s best creative ideas and brainstorming take place in the shower. The steam from the shower first fogs up the mirror to create a digital whiteboard on a section of the door allowing the consumers to draw all over the glass while mailing themselves the same. While the idea might seem superfluous, Marriot is actually planning to crunch the same tech in its hotels after testing the date from here.

As per Matt Carroll, VP of Global Brand Management at Marriott believes that the technology is part of a broader move to keep up with the Consumers’ changing travel habits and new competition from the digital upstarts such as Airbnb, HomeAway, and other online travel agents. Apart from the connected mirrors in the shower, Marriot has also invested in Mobile-Powered Room Keys and check-ins while creating a Facebook Messenger Chatbot which lets its guests set up wake-up calls and order room service. “It’s an ongoing process of testing, learning and trying new things,” Carroll said. “As we hone in on those things that resonate, we’re moving as quickly as possible and scale them across the brand.”

How is IoT shaping Travel Brands Innovation?

Image result for Iot and travel brands

From giving consumers better recommendations to using the Artificial Intelligence for the same to trying IoT in order to personalize the experience of consumers, the Travel brands have been pouring in millions of dollars into technology to make the consumers and shape their travel experience for better and larger good. The days have gone by for personal bookings as most of the bookings are made these days using Smartphones and Tablets.

“The travel sector is already disrupting itself and disrupting itself again because it has all the makings of things that are going on in the consumer markets right now, which is in the direct-to-consumer, service-based moment,” said Brent Vartan, managing partner at Bullish. “Most of what is coming now in the marketplace is people trying to disintermediate as much as possible.”

As per the data collected by Accenture and the World Economic Forum, the digital changes in sectors such as Travel, Aviation, and Tourism industries will be worth more than $1 trillion in revenue and efficiency saving by the year 2027. And the in the center of such innovations would be such Internet of Things (IoT) where the date about everything from spending to location to insights about previous trips that marketers are practically important for. The importance of data influx would be greater in the coming times while we serve the type of vacations have the consumers been to lately or if a traveler is more inclined to relax on a beach or are they more adventurous? Marriott’s Carroll said. “We’ll serve them up offers for experiences that align with their buying patterns in the past.”

What do the Consumers Want from IoT?

The reveling innovation in the sector is marked by the jump in the consumer apprehensions where more than 67% of them want the travel companies to send them the personalized recommendations but only 44% of them actually receive such recommendations due to companies back slogging.

Given the competition in the Aviation and Travel sector, the travel companies will have to specific about their recommendations which they give to their consumers based on their travel search and travel history.

YouTube Introduces New Norms for Creator Monetization Through ‘Google Preferred’

Posted January 18, 2018 by Abhishek Pandey @ 3:41 pm

Image result for YouTube Preferred

YouTube had announced earlier that it will chop and change some of its monetization methods to suit the larger sections of the video marketing. It has made some big changes to its monetization platform for creators as well as advertisers in order to bring coherence to the online video marketing community.  The changes have been brought in to three major areas – YouTube’s Partner Program, Google Preferred and a general transparency effort with both brands and creators over how people are paid. The Google Preferred affiliates marketing strategy for top-tier advertisement group for a select group of creators. The group was originally created as a way to offer brands, “access to among the top 5% of content on YouTube, reach the highly coveted 18- to 34-year-old audience, and receive the measurement results they need to maximize the impact of their campaigns.”

What is the new change in the YouTube Video Marketing?

The changes have been very selective as all the Google Preferred-eligible creators will now have to undergo an increased vetting process from YouTube for verifying user content. All the videos uploaded to the YouTube will now have to be watched by a moderator and manually approved as family-friendly content. This has been to done to give an extra protection through human moderation and catch the content which is not suitable for viewing. It will also be applied to the earlier uploaded pictures as well.

“We expect to complete manual reviews of Google Preferred channels and videos by mid-February in the U.S. and by the end of March in all other markets where Google Preferred is offered,” Paul Muret, YouTube’s vice president for display, video, and analytics, wrote in a blog post.

Changes Affecting Creators and Publishers

There are however other changes which may affect the YouTubers who are not actually eligible for Google Preferred’s top-tier ads. The threshold for creators who qualify for YouTube’s Partners Program has been completely revamped where a number of viewing hours will be given more priority than the number of views. Instead of a total of 10,000 total channel views, the company seems to give value to a number of hours spent on channels that have at least 1000 subscribers to them.

As per a blog is written by Neal Mohan, YouTube’s Chief Product Officer and Rover Kyncl, YouTube’s Chief Business Officer, ‘Starting today we’re changing the eligibility requirement for monetization to 4,000 hours of watch time within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. We’ve arrived at these new thresholds after thorough analysis and conversations with creators like you. They will allow us to significantly improve our ability to identify creators who contribute positively to the community and help drive more ad revenue to them (and away from bad actors). These higher standards will also help us prevent potentially inappropriate videos from monetizing which can hurt revenue for everyone.’

Why have the changed been made?

They outlined the changes to be hurting but it is expected to tackle the potential abuse of a large but disparate group of smaller channels while the company is aware of much of an impact the bad action. YouTube has been finding it really difficult to tackle to charges made against it about the offensive content uploaded by some creators. To nullify those claims and clamp down on certain creators, YouTube had to take these steps. The new and the existing creators will have to reach 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours to get automatically re-evaluated under strict criteria to ensure they comply with our policies. The channels not fulfilling these criteria will no longer be able to earn money on YouTube.

When they reach 1,000 subs and 4,000 watch hours they will be automatically re-evaluated under strict criteria to ensure they comply with our policies. New channels will need to apply, and their application will be evaluated when they hit these milestones. Though these changes will affect a significant number of channels, 99% of those affected were making less than $100 per year in the last year, with 90% earning less than $2.50 in the last month. Any of the channels who no longer meet this threshold will be paid what they’ve already earned based on our AdSense policies. After thoughtful consideration, we believe these are necessary compromises to protect our community.

Three Ways in Which Traditional Media Companies Can Catch the Online Media Bull by its Horn

Posted January 10, 2018 by Abhishek Pandey @ 2:02 am

Image result for Traditional Media Companies

There has been a huge shift in the stance as to where the Traditional Media Companies stand today as they have faced a huge competition from technology-based sites such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon. Though this might not look to be a real tug of war, traditional media players have already been pushed to the corners defending their own den. The technology-oriented digital platforms have been winning the ad serving battles online at a greater rate than expected. On the other hand, they have also entered the realm of creation and distribution of content too with significant investments, a forte of traditional media platforms. So, this has raised an alarming issue for the traditional media firms who have lost the account in this sector.

What Problems are being faced by Traditional Media Companies?

The race to the center has now started and the traditional companies have started facing the competition of their life but what can they do to rescue themselves? Various content-based companies who delve into technology have entered the market. For example, there are direct to consumer cover the top (OTT) services such as DirectTV Now or Sling TV, which generally involve repackaging linear television networks, putting the, on broadband and charging a fee. Also, they are facing a tough challenge from an online platform such as Amazon Prime, Facebook, YouTube, and Netflix, the biggest of them all. These platforms have the technological infrastructure, a ready audience, and viewership and most importantly the capability to serve ads. What is more worrying about traditional media players is the funding these technical sites have received over the year. The challenge therefore to traditional TV companies has been to make such content to get accepted in the general consumer lines. The problem that TV companies have faced is the execution of a content-specific platform for the users. They have switched to an IP infrastructure and migrated the content library and applications to the public cloud as well as migrated to the physical data centers. They are also utilizing the board data for decision making and technological usage.

Some of the ways in which the traditional media players can still contest with the technology-oriented platforms are as follows:

Technology-based customer experience

User satisfaction information can be one of the possible ways to make specific content and the technology has that tool to enhance such experience. The content companies need to engage the consumers in their content to gain maximum popularity. For that, they can use the Artificial Intelligence as well as Virtual Reality to backend Infrastructure. Some of the companies have switched from traditional liner SDI video to IP which has enabled liner television to work a little more like the online world.

Personalized Programming Choices

Image result for Personalized Programming Choices

There have been ongoing innovations in the field of targeted programming choices where the user-specific content gets materialized. This is a give and takes world where the traditional media players need to give viewers what they want when they want it based on real data. If you know the consumption habit, you will get to know what the consumers want in these times. So, for example, if someone only wants one type of show, you can give that person the option to binge watch that shows and create a personal network beneficial enough for everyone. Personal preferences will have to be taken in cognizance if you must stabilize the network you wanted.

Focus on Advertising Efforts

We often see the online content providers understanding the needs of the consumers even in the field of advertisements and this becomes evident when they prefer user-specific ads too. Changing the value proposition by delivering relevant, less obtrusive ads — in new and creative ways — to a cross-platform audience creates a better experience for the consumer and is far more efficient to your advertisers.
