Today, more than 73% of American adults visit social media sites regularly. As a business, it’s essential to maintain social media accounts as a way to boost knowledge about your brand and connect on a more personal level with your consumers. Keep reading to check out a few of the latest, most popular social media sites and how they can benefit you.
Snapchat is a relatively new “moment-sharing” platform that allows users to personalize and share images or videos with a unique twist: the shared content disappears within ten seconds of viewing. Because content disappears, many businesses have been slow to adopt this platform as a marketing tool. However, Snapchat’s unique “disappearing” content has a dramatic effect on users—namely, that users must pay attention when they receive a message, rather than flagging it for review later. This unique trait actually makes Snapchat a valuable and effective online marketing platform that engages consumers more directly than many other types of social media networks.
Periscope is a live video-streaming app that allows users to broadcast live from their mobile device. This app fills a unique niche that encourages individuals to share events as they happen, rather than recording them to post later. However, like Snapchat, Periscope content is only visible for a limited period of time—24 hours—before it is removed from the network. During this time, other users may replay or leave comments on videos. As a business, you can use Periscope to livestream events, provide question and answer sessions, or even offer “insider” videos with special content for consumers following your account.
