How Brands Are Now Marketing With Snapchat Spectacles

How Brands Are Now Marketing With Snapchat Spectacles

For the latest on top trends and news on Snapchat, YouTube, Instagram, and more, subscribe to our industry digest newsletter.

How 4 Leading Brands Are Using Snapchat Spectacles

10 Of The Biggest Social Media Influencers Of All Time

10 Of The Biggest Social Media Influencers Of All Time

The Top 10 Social Media Influencers Across YouTube, Facebook, & Instagram

When we think about social media influencers, we typically think of people with massive followings on one platform, be it Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, or Snapchat. But the biggest social media influencers are often those who manage to tap into and engage large audiences across all of the major top platforms, networks, and apps — YouTubers who have millions of Twitter followers, Instagrammers who have millions of page likes on Facebook, Snapchat stars who find their way to big audiences on Instagram.

In 2017, to be present on social media is to have more than one presence. We all have iterations of our online personas that differ from platform to platform. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube are all tailored to slightly different content consuming and sharing experiences, and thus attract different audiences. By today’s standards, the biggest social media influencers aren’t just the ones who have found success in one place, but those who have found success on one platform and have managed to replicate that success on other platforms.

TapInfluence Review: Influencer Marketing Platform For Creators, Brands, & Agencies

For brands, running influencer marketing campaigns is a big job. From deciding on target messaging and demographics to choosing influencers that are going to resonate with the target audience, there are a lot of variables to consider and juggle. It’s not necessarily a picnic for influencers, either. Finding work and getting paid fairly and promptly can be a challenge.

Frankly, that’s why agencies focused solely on influencer marketing exist. It’s also why platforms like TapInfluence exist, though their function is ultimately a little bit different.

How Snapchat's IPO Stacks Up Against Facebook's & Twitter's [Infographic]

Snapchat’s filed for its IPO, and with the filing comes a lot of talk about growth, profitability, potential stock prices, and Snapchat’s plans for the future. There have also been plenty of comparisons to other massive tech IPOs, primarily those of Facebook and Twitter. But how does Snapchat really stack up? And does that tell us something about Snapchat’s probable future?

When we start talking about IPOs, we tend to start talking in very big numbers that are difficult to understand without some kind of context.
