Twitter beats Facebook for the first time

Twitter beats Facebook

twitter y facebook

Twitter celebrates 10 years and their numbers are below those of Facebook at the same age. As we can see in the table below, Twitter has been lagging behind Facebook in terms of assets and income users. The company is still losing money while Facebook earned more than US $500 million per quarter at the same point in its life cycle. However Twitter beats Facebook in an area for the first time in 10 years.

This area represents the hope of Twitter: revenue per user. Twitter has been able to get about US $2.33 per user, while Facebook gets only US $2.11 per user at this point.

If Twitter somehow managed to capture more users and get them to use the service monthly, it could become even greater than Facebook business. However, the growth of Twitter users has stagnated over the last year, so we should wait to see what happens this year to start putting our chips on this social network.

Tension between Facebook and Snapchat

facebook y snapchat

facebook y snapchatThis week Facebook incorporates an animated filters application, called “Masquerade”. While it is known that for some time there is tension between Facebook and Snapchat, this news did nothing but intensifying it. The rivalry between these companies part of both fighting for dominance of digital video (the protagonist of 2016) and investment in advertising that this entails.

Since 2012, Facebook has tried to catch up with some of the tools of the fashion social network, and this acquisition leaves the sight of the brutal competition between the two companies.

Facebook: Failed attempts

Snapchat has understood the younger users, known as “millennials”, and since 2011, Facebook has tried several times unsuccessfully to imitate some of the most attractive features of his rival.

  • In 2012 they released “Poke”, an application that allowed users to send photos and videos for a limited time, after which they self-destroyed. The application died a year and a half later.
  • Mark Zuckerberg did not give up, and he tried again in 2014 with another similar app, called “Slingshot”. It was not very successful and in December of that year ceased to exist.

The interest Facebook has on Snapchat goes beyond wanting to copy it . Mark tried to buy it twice, but its CEO (Evan Spiegel) refused on both occasions.

Video ambitions 

Facebook says it plans to keep “Masquerade” as a standalone application and at the same time seeks to incorporate selfie effects similar to those of Snapchat, to their own products. On the other hand, as we know the video is the main protagonist of 2016, and it is for this reason that Facebook has begun putting great emphasis on its new addition: “Facebook Live”,  an application for live video transmission.

The sense of threat Facebook felt for Snapchat is justified , since both have the same number of daily views on videos, but Snapchat has fewer active users. The main difference between the two is that in Snapchat users have to touch the screen to see the video, while Facebook videos are autoplay.

Snapchat is in the first stage of doing business, ruling advertising in “stories”, “discover” or “live”, spaces that are attractive to advertisers.

Nick Cicero, CEO of “Delmondo” and Snapchat analytics specialist, says Facebook asked in January about influencers and Snapchat audience. However they did not reach any agreement.

Snapchat is not far behind and decided to fight. The company has hired one of Facebook’s publicists, Sriram Krishnan, the founder of “Facebook Audience Network”, which places ads on Facebook applications and mobile sites.

How will this rivalry continue? We do not know. We hope that both companies continue  incorporating innovative tools.

The role of influencers in marketing strategies

Influencers

In recent times influencers marketing has been gaining weight. With the internet boom and the success of social networks, certain profiles of users have managed to connect with his followers, created a strong data base and connect with other users. Their opinions are valued, because they are seen as influencers ‘who know’ about specific issues.

Influencers are increasingly required by brands, and even become the subject of their marketing campaigns. Several studies have demonstrated that such figures and their views are far more compelling to consumers than traditional advertising formats.

“For digital generation new voices are needed. The falls and rises celebrities are much faster now and brands need to capture the flow and exploit microhearings segments” said Rob Norman, chief digital officer of GroupM.

And not only is that celebrities have seen their traditional moment of glory have a shorter life cycle, but also the weight of influence has also changed.

The presence of influencers in campaigns is increasingly common: 75% of brands confessed in a study that uses influencers in their campaigns. The forecasts are that in the near future the number of firms using these figures rise to 84%.

The professionalization of influencers

Today companies have professionalized access to influencers and given them a larger role in its strategy. Now, these have become a proper communication channel (not just a complement to public relations campaigns) and brands are devoting more and more budget on them.

The agencies are launching increasingly formats to understand how marketing works with influencers. Measure the success or failure of a campaign influencers is becoming increasingly easy because more tools to measure the ROI of these campaigns and the actual impact on consumers appeared.

Brands are encouraging devote part of their budget to such campaigns. Not worth to convince a influencers to talk about something with offering a gift. Influencers have to be on the budget: for them has become a source of income and for brands a new source of expenditure. The 85% of influencers expected to be paid if you are talking about a product and only 4% would be content to receive the product in exchange. Those who are content to hire them for your blog publicity are a minority.

Does the marketing strategy of your company contemplates the use of influencers?

CEOs are increasingly aware of the importance of digital tools

Los CEOs cada vez son más conscientes de la importancia de las herramientas digitales

Los CEOs cada vez son más conscientes de la importancia de las herramientas digitales
Que las estrategias digitales son el futuro de cualquier compañía es una obviedad que nadie se atrevería a negar. Pero los directores ejecutivos de las empresas tienen cada vez más en cuenta esa premisa, y comienzan a incorporar la tecnología como una herramienta esencial también para el desarrollo de la empresa. Así lo comprobamos en una reciente
encuesta sobre la inteligencia digital de PwC a más de 2000 ejecutivos: este año, el 73% de ellos afirmó que el CEO de su compañía está ayudando a promover las nuevas tecnologías digitales, cuando solo el 57% de los CEOs eran conscientes de la importancia de las herramientas online.

Ese cambio se manifiesta, además, en que las compañías buscan invertir en tecnología que impacte en todas las líneas de negocio: el 31% de los encuestados afirmaron que sus empresas dedican más del 15% de sus ingresos a mejorar de tecnología en los distintos departamentos, y no solo en el propio de TIC.

¿Y qué esperan desde las empresas de esa mayor inversión en digital? La gran mayoría de los encuestados (45%) un aumento de los ingresos, aunque un 25% también considera importante crear una mejor experiencia del consumidor. Por debajo quedaría otros objetivos como innovar, ahorrar costes, mejorar la toma de decisiones a través de análisis de datos, mejorar la reputación de marca o combatir a nuevos competidores.

¿Cómo medir la inteligencia digital de una empresa?

El informe de PwC trata de encontrar aquellos atributos que definen una alta inteligencia digital por parte de una empresa y el liderazgo del CEO es clave, pero también debe estar apoyado por el resto del equipo ejecutivo.

Así, hay 10 características que definen a las empresas con alta inteligencia digital: un líder ambicioso, directores de informática y datos que colaboren a la hora de poner en marcha la estrategia, un equipo ejecutivo comprometido con el tema digital (algo en lo que falla prácticamente la mitad de las empresas), una estrategia común y compartida por toda la compañía, una aproximación interna a la innovación, una rápida adopción de tecnologías que supongan una ventaja competitiva,un uso efectivo de los datos de negocio, una actitud proactiva hacia la cyberseguridad, el establecimiento de una hoja de ruta de la estrategia digital, y una medición de resultados consistente.

Los CEOs consideran que las estrategias de marketing son poco efectivas

Aunque los CEOs son ya muy conscientes del impacto que las nuevas tecnologías pueden tener en su negocio, no lo son tanto del potencial para sus campañas de marketing.

Según otra encuesta de Forbes Insights, el 69% de los CEOs considera que la inversión en marketing no se está aprovechando como debería, mientras que entre los CMOs, son solo el 34% los que opinan lo mismo.

En concreto, los directores ejecutivos consideran que se debería mejorar el conocimiento del cliente, y el 69% afirma que la empresa no entiende a los clientes.

Eso sí, tienen muy claro que la solución pasa por el big data, y de hecho, aquellas empresas que cuentan con buenas herramientas para el análisis de datos son las que están más dispuestas a aumentar la inversión en marketing.

43% de las Fanpages se promocionan con publicidad en facebook

publicidad en facebook

publicidad en facebookSocial networks have become a powerful allied for brands to reach users and can generate a committed relationship in them. However, experience has shown to be present in these social platforms is not indicative enough to achieve their goals independently. At least in the case of Facebook.

Y es que una reciente investigación llevada a cabo por Locowise señala que el 43,36% de las páginas utilizan publicidad paga, lo que supone el 31,51% del total del tráfico que estas reciben. Una decisión que se da en mayor medida en aquellas páginas que cuentan con una mayor comunidad de usuarios. De hecho, el 48,28% de las páginas con mayor número de seguidores en Facebook utiliza anuncios, mientras que únicamente el 23,81% de las que contaban con un número de seguidores pequeño optó por esta vía de promoción.

Para llegar a estas conclusiones, la investigación analizó el comportamiento de más de 5.000 páginas en Facebook, así como su crecimiento, alcance y resultados de las campañas de publicidad en facebook llevadas a cabo por las mismas durante el mes de mayo.

En lo que respecta al crecimiento experimentado por este volumen de páginas de Facebook analizadas, el mismo fue de solo un 0,2%. La cifra se sitúa muy por detrás de la subida en cuanto a número de seguidores que obtuvieron otras redes sociales, como Instagram, donde la tasa alcanzó el 1,95%. En este caso, las páginas de Facebook con un número de “me gusta” menor fueron las que obtuvieron un crecimiento superior a la media del 0,28%. Por el contrario, las páginas con más de un millón de “me gustas” registraron un retroceso del 0,21% en lo que respecta al registro de nuevos seguidores.

Del mismo modo, el alcance promedio de las publicaciones de las páginas analizadas fue del 8,24% del total de los integrantes que configuran su comunidad de seguidores. En este sentido, cuando más grande es la página menor es su tasa de penetración en la audiencia. Así, en el caso de las páginas de Facebook con más de un millón de “me gusta” la tasa de alcance fue del 6,62%, mientras que aquellas que contaban con una comunidad de usuarios menor la tasa de penetración de sus publicaciones fue del 14,88%.

Asimismo, la participación promedio de los usuarios, por entrada publicada, durante el pasado mes de mayo fue del 6,61% en la totalidad de los usuarios de esta red social. Por el contrario a lo sucedido en las categorías anteriores, las páginas con un mayor número de usuarios fueron las que obtuvieron una mayor participación en cuanto a estos, la cual fue de un 8,92%.

El contenido en vídeo, el que más compromiso genera

La investigación llevada a cabo por Locowise también hizo hincapié en los resultados obtenidos por las páginas de Facebook en función al tipo de contenido que estas publicaban. Una heterogeneidad de publicaciones que tienen al soporte en vídeo como protagonista y como indicador más exitoso. Así, los vídeos se constituyeron como el contenido que cuenta con una tasa de alcance del 11,86%. Por su parte, los enlaces registraron una tasa de alcance del 9%, las fotos llegaron al 7,86% y las actualizaciones de estados, al 6,12% de la audiencia total.

Sin embargo, las imágenes son el formato de difusión de contenido que mayor tasa de interacción genera con los usuarios, la cual asciende al 7,06%. Por su parte, los vídeos logran un compromiso del 6,61% y los enlaces del 5,37%. En el lado opuesto se sitúan las actualizaciones de estado, que involucran al 3,34% de los usuarios alcanzados.

How does a brand succeeds on Twitter

marca triunfe en twitter

Twitter has become one of the favorite tools to companies business by the way it reaches consumers. It´s quick, direct and it works in a perfect way that helps to establish long lasting real time relations by keeping the brand as a part of the daily news. Companies start to be a part of the conversation and the communications turns more personal with the consumers.

But Twitter, as every communicational tool, requires some basic elements at the time users create a digital strategy to reach success when relating with consumers. In other words: everything that can occur on Twitter matters, and not everything brands do is acceptable. Hubspot and SocialBro made a guide of what does and what does not make a brand succeed on Twitter.

Twitter as a perfect tool to build a brand

Social media has become an essential element to build a powerful brand. Twitter is vital for it but it needs to have a good role play. It is important to follow Twitter´s basic rules. According to Hubspot´s information, to acquire engagement within the relationship with consumers first of all it is needed to establish an equal bond with followers. In other words, the audience should be seen as a friend rather than the massive group of people it actually is. By having this on mind the communication turns more personal to each consumer; as an audience you prefer to feel there is a relationship with the brand you follow instead of reading institutional messages that were obviously thought for the mass. Of course, this also helps to embrace the personality of the company by reflecting it in every message they send, and as they publish messages that connect with the audience.

Twitter as a lead generator.

This social media tool does not only works to create powerful bonds within consumers and brands, it´s also useful to conclude several things brands are looking forward to concrete in short term conditions; such as generating leads. To achieve this, tweets must be short and concise: the reader should clearly notice what you are offering. Moreover it must be presented in an attractive way. The best technique to achieve this is by including only one link, by not using hash tags and by not mentioning other users.

Twitter has its own label

It is extremely important not to forget that Twitter has its own label which provides a specific format that needs to be strictly followed. Direct messages are useful when a personal communication is required if not it is considered spam communication. On behalf, something that must be kept on mind is to take care and keep followers. You ought to convince them that your account is worth to follow.  Most of companies twitter accounts loose a 15% of new followers after the 3rd week they get to know the brand because, the information that was posted wasn´t relevant.

How content is published helps to achieve better results.

Images are much more attractive than texts. Tweets that include images achieve a 34% of re-tweets rather than the ones which not. Furthermore, not every image will work, it needs a previous analysis and selection of what image it will be posted, why and when. First of all, as it is recommended on Hubspot´s guide: make sure you have the right to publish that image, check quality and definition, and be aware that there is a relation with the content.

Images are not the only way to create an attractive post. Playing with URLs it is also a good strategy to have on mind. According to SocialBro´s data base, corporate messages on Twitter that include an URL in the middle achieve in a 26% a superior number of re-tweets, than the ones that includes it at the beginning or at the end.

And, of course, hash tags are definitely an element that helps to motivate the company´s presence in conversations. Terms of use are based on common sense, although brands don´t always have this on mind. Hash tags must be used on appropriate situations. If a hash tag wants to be used to start a conversation it must be creative and clearly linked to the brand, so as to followers link it on their minds. And the most important part is not to use hash tags that have been used by others, especially by the competence.

To conclude, a tweet with numerous hash tags does not reach the objective. The ones with only one hash tag obtain a 69% more of probabilities to be re-tweeted.

Digital or traditional advertising? How it impacts the generation Y?

Publicidad digital en generacion Y

Publicidad digital en generacion YLa generación “Y” ó tambien denominada “la generación del milenio” (millennials) muestra estar más influenciada por los anuncios publicitarios digitales, aunque le presta mayor atención a la publicidad tradicional.

Los de la generación Y son conocidos por ser un grupo consumidor de preferencia digital, pero esto no significa que la publicidad tradicional les parezca menos efectiva. Un estudio realizado por Adroit digital en enero del 2014 en Estados Unidos a usuarios de smartphones, acerca de la efectividad de la publicidad digital frente a la publicidad tradicional, arrojó el resultado de que el 36% dijo que los anuncios digitales fueron más efectivos, pero seguido muy de cerca por el porcentaje (28%) de los que dijeron que eran igualmente efectivos.

Mientras que el estudio de Adroit Digital mostró que los anuncios de TV son los que ganan en mayor percepción y valoración de una marca, con un 70% de share en los encuestados de generación Y, los formatos de anuncios digitales siguen después ganándole al resto de las categorías.

Publicidad digital ignorada por jovenesSin embargo, más allá de que la generación del milenio muestra estar más influenciada por la publicidad digital en su conjunto, otro estudio, realizado por Goo Technologies también en enero de este año, encontró que la generación que va entre los 18-34 años en Estados Unidos tiene una tendencia mayor a ignorar los anuncios online que la que tiene por los avisos publicitarios tradicionales en TV, radio y gráfica.

Toda Agencia Marketing Digital debe tomar en cuenta estas consideraciones al plantear una estrategia de marketing  y comunicación a sus clientes.
