Social media platforms are a great option for Businesses to engage with their customers and increase their Branding. Most of the companies target their audience via these platforms. Almost all the big companies are marketing themselves on Social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn etc. But one of these platforms that hasn’t been explored yet by the marketers is Snapchat.
Snapchat has gained its popularity in recent years and is more used in the age group of 12-25 years old. For most of the companies with their target audiences in this age group, Snapchat could be a great option to explore new audiences and marketing aspects.
What Is Snapchat?
Snapchat is a Social media application which is used to share short, self-destructing videos and images with acquaintances and followers. Snapchat also provides chatting and calling services to the users. It has gained a huge following among the teenagers and adults. Many companies might not foresee Snapchat as a better marketing opportunity due to disappearing images and videos but if done properly, this could be one of the best marketing platforms and has potential to do so.
One of the most unique feature i.e. disappearing videos and images can be used by a marketer to create a sense of urgency among individuals and make them more curious. For example a marketer can run a small coupon code or discount code that can be availed by the user for a very short duration. This way the marketer can create curiosity among its consumer to avail the offers in limited time.
Strategize Your Campaign
There are many other such strategies that could be implemented to increase sales from the snapchat but the content that you create should be entertaining as demanded by the users of the application. Snapchat is not the platform you have to be completely present at but it is a nice way marketing your product and services if they are compelling to the age group associated with it. One thing that Snapchat can guarantee and might be profitable for the marketers is that their ads and offers will not pile up like on other platforms rather will get the maximum visibility compared to other platforms. This one feature provides a lot to the marketer and rest depends on the content and Ad that you create.
