CapitalOneSparkVoice: Snapchat, Instagram And Vine For Social Media Marketing?

CapitalOneSparkVoice: Snapchat, Instagram And Vine For Social Media Marketing? | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

By creating personalized images for the right audience with a bent toward either real-time fun or extended sharing, brands are building a more visual experience for their customers.


Consider all the time, energy and money that goes into the average 30-second commercial or magazine ad. Now imagine those ads being cut down to 10 seconds or a couple of square inches. Now imagine them self-destructing after 10 seconds, Inspector Gadget-style, never to be seen again by consumers.


If all of this seems like an insane way to market a small business, welcome to the crazy times of social media. That’s exactly how the massively popular Snapchat app works, and businesses are jumping on board. Using photos or short videos, companies are reaching out to customers with fleeting promotions, contests in real time and quick peeks at leaked product images....

Counterintuitive content marketing seems to be working for some small businesses.

8 Brands Rocking Snapchat

8 Brands Rocking Snapchat | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

These are the chattiest brands on Snapchat, demonstrating that time-sensitive images can actually be a strength in brand marketing.Mobile apps such as Twitter, Vine, Instagram and Snapchat are turning traditional media marketing upside down, challenging brands in increasingly new ways. Human interactions are key to brand loyalty and building a strong consumer base, and these mobile apps allow for two-way conversations.


Snapchat, which launched in the iTunes App Store in September 2011, is popular with a much younger demographic than some marketing execs are used to, but it takes little or no cost to interact with customers by way of snaps. Compare that to other pricey forms of old-school advertising, and that’s a major plus...

Snapchat is really big today, i myself use this app with my friends. This is a great way to get a message out among many people. The Snapchat app allows you to take a picture, write a short message and draw on it. You can then select how long this picture will be viewed for and send it to select friends. Snapchat has now added another feature called "Mys story" You can make a collage of pictures that will show on someones screen for up to 24 hours, after that the pictures are gone forever. This would be a great app to work with as a PR agent.

Once you've found your friends on Snapchat, you can simply start taking pictures and sending them out to as many friends as you want.The app has a couple of distinguishing features in terms of photo taking. One, users can draw on their photos. So that's funny sometimes. Two, you can caption any photo. Three, you get to set how long — from 1-10 seconds — the photograph will be visible to receivers. Crucially, too, the app tells you when your snaps are opened by the receiver. You know they saw it....
