With 79% of Australians using social media, an increase of 10% from last year, it has become a necessity for businesses to get their digital house in order. And by house, we mean social media platforms. This isn’t to say your business needs to be across all platforms, as some are more tailored to certain industries than other; put simply, you will need some sort of social media presence to ensure your business is visible against competitors. Whether this be LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat, your business will need some sort of digital presence (other than a killer website), to ensure your digital marketing is successful.
Social Media is definitely a Millennials game, with 99% of 18 to 29 year olds active on social media. Across the world there are 400 million snaps sent every single day, 9000 snaps shared every second, and more than 10 billion videos views daily. That’s a lot of untapped potential. Snapchat is a global platform; unlike Facebook which is commonly tailored to your region, Snapchat can be viewed from across the world, and offers users a live or private look into a business’ day-to-day - all users need to connect is the handle.
As Snapchat is focused on livestreaming and direct messaging, it allows you to give your business a personality. It can show behind the scene footage, updates on new products, direct shopping, or live footage from events. Another great feature of Snapchat is its filters (and we don’t mean the puppy ears). Your business can purchase a screen Geofilter for events that users can use when they share videos or images with their network - now that’s modern word of mouth advertising.
