的品牌, agencies and adtech firms that anticipate the impact of the loss of cookies and are able to adjust their strategies and create tools to best compete in this new environment will be the ones that come out ahead in the new, 无cookie世界.
我清楚地记得在2018年 Snapchat 对应用进行了重大的重新设计，让用户发誓“永远不再使用该应用”.” Although many people attribute this change to the shift in the popularity of Instagram stories, people didn’t abandon Snapchat altogether – I’m sure most people don’t even remember what changed now. In fact, just two short years later, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, more users are turning. 通过Snapchat与家人和朋友保持联系. 这款应用的几乎所有功能的用户粘性都在增加, 其中一些已经达到了历史上的最高点.
推特也面临着类似的情况. An app that was once well known for its financial ups and downs (which in the last two years seems to have stabilized), people were taken by surprise when the company announced that they would ban all political related advertisements on their platform. 在这个选举周期中，参选人预计将花费前所未有的 10亿美元 在数字广告, 政客们被迫在竞争对手的平台上投入广告资金, Facebook(据估计 59% 这些钱都花在那里了). 然而，广告收入的缺乏似乎并没有对这个平台产生太大影响. 和, 最近的居家令, 平台的用户基础稳步增长，变得更加活跃, 让非政治广告商有机会获得更大的受众基础.
圣诞节来了, 感恩节, 母亲节, 和其他主要节日, 我随时准备收到Snapchat团队发来的庆祝视频. 然而, 随着冠状病毒疫情的蔓延, I noticed non-holiday messages coming from the team regarding updates to the platforms and special new additions. These were released either in an effort to keep users connected with friends and family or provide timely, 关于冠状病毒的事实核查信息.
发现, Snapchat’s content platform requires that all information shared is fact-checked and credible. This is essential as 68 million Snapchatters have viewed COVID-19 related content on Snapchat, especially among younger generations as over 40% of Gen Z has turned to this content for information. Snapchat也采取了以下措施来提供帮助
在一个 博客 出版于四月初, Snapchat表示:“我们发现平台上的用户参与度有所提高, 其中大部分来自亲密朋友之间的交流.” They also noted six different increases in app features that illustrate why they’ve seen an overall increase in overall app use.
Snaps between friends 有 reached an all-time high (suppressing the traditional peaks of Christmas and major holidays)
Snap Games has seen its highest figures since launch for overall time spent, player count and usage
所有关于应用使用和用户粘性的数据, it’s no wonder advertisers are interested and pivoting their advertising dollars towards Snapchat. TikTok, Twitch, chiptoole和军队 are a few of the major players that have upped their Snapchat advertising during the last few months. With Snapchat’s swipe up feature that allows users to go directly from an ad to ordering food, 订阅服务, 学习或多或, 购买, Snapchat上的“可采取行动的”广告非常强大.
如果你的目标用户属于Snapchat的主要用户群体, it’s a great tool to in addition to or in place of Instagram and Facebook whose user base skews a little older (25-34 years old and 40-years-old, 分别).
在冠状病毒首次出现后的第一个月, 超过1500万条推文提到了冠状病毒. This set 推特 up for a huge undertaking in terms of mitigating the spread of false information. 然而, they were quick to make sure users searcing for information were presented factual and reliable information from sources such as the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control. 除了, they increased the use of artificial intelligence to detect false information and flag it for removal, 例如:
正如上面提到的, 2019年底, 推特 announced that it would not allow political advertisements for the upcoming election. 以类似的方式, 随着冠状病毒在世界各地传播, 推特迅速禁止了与冠状病毒相关的广告. 然而, in early April as the platform realized that companies couldn’t ignore the coronavirus in ads, they shifted their policy to allow the advertisements – with restrictions on who was allowed to speak on it and what they were allowed to say. 推特客户端CA88负责人Sarah Personette， 说: “It’s a shift that we’re making from an ads policy perspective because we believe that the messaging that brands and businesses can provide to the world and provide to consumers are going to be positively received.”
This 深思熟虑的 change in policy allows advertisers to reach the platforms increased user base (keeping in mind sympathetic messaging). 而且，广告商正在寻找成功. 在最近的报道中，广告商正在接近 多出14% 与今年1月相比，推特上的广告吸引了更多用户. 推特 is also a strategic choice for brands trying to reach a male audience as 66% of this audience is male, 这是社交媒体的一个异常现象, 因为大多数用户都是女性.
Both Snapchat and 推特 have implemented tactics to keep their user bases informed with fact-checked, 这段时间内的有效信息. Users have taken to these platforms both to consume this content and to keep in touch with family and friends, 这给广告商带来了巨大的机会. 因为消费者在这些平台上花费的时间越来越多, 广告商增加了浏览量和其他重要的KPI指标. 然而, 正如前面提到过的, 因为广告商正在努力接触这些全神贯注的观众, 确保及时发送信息, 深思熟虑的, and informative – consumers will be very turned off if they feel as though you are trying to use the current situation for profit.
