Facebook’s Branded Content Tool Is A Must-Use For Brands

Branded content utilizes content as a way to promote or advertise for a brand. Branded content can represent a variety of marketing materials ranging from white papers, online YouTube videos, blog posts, and Instagram photos. Today, branded content is everywhere. The rise of social media and influencer marketing has made it impossible for brands to avoid branded content. Moreover, the recent FTC crackdown on branded content has revealed many related consumer issues such as transparency.

Increased attention to branded content has led brands and advertising platforms, especially social media websites, to be more cognizant of ethical consumer advertising practices, especially in influencer marketing. Specifically, brands and their partners need to include proper disclosure techniques. Facebook, in particular, has revamped its website and advertising tools for brands and their partners to give marketers a tool for their branded content.

Why Facebook Live Is Perfect For Marketers At CES 2017

Among the most anticipated annual events in the technology industry, the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) is where both top and emerging tech brands come together to showcase the newest, most groundbreaking products and services. In the past, audiences unable to fly to Las Vegas to attend the Show were subjected to secondhand news, either from videos posted after a product release or from articles relaying information.

However, this year, audiences can look forward to enjoying tech releases in real-time using live streaming. With several social platforms enabling users to live stream, CES can now be fully experienced on social media. We go over the different ways that brands, publishers, and influencers are using live streaming to showcase their CES experience, specifically on Facebook Live.

Google Purchases Influencer Marketing Platform FameBit To Better Connect Creators & Advertisers

On October 11, 2016, Google acquired FameBit for an undisclosed amount (rumored to be $15M). FameBit, an influencer marketing platform, previously raised an undisclosed seed round in September 2013 and subsequently $1.5M in another seed round summer of 2014 from Third Wave Digital (and its founder Allen DeBovoise), Silicon Valley venture capital firm and startup accelerator 500 Startups, and Science (also an investor in Dollar Shave Club and DogVacay), among others.

Google's FameBit purchase is a significant event for the influencer marketing industry—the tech giant's acquisition of its first influencer marketing outfit not only marks the industry's immense growth and popularity, but also influencer marketing's viability as a core strategy and channel for advertisers, social media apps and networks, and its ecosystem of millions of social media influencers, fans, and followers—all things Google is keen to be a part of.

FTC Endorsement Guidelines For 2016 [Infographic]

The Updated 2016 FTC Endorsement Guidelines: What Brands Must Know For Sponsorships On Social Media & With Influencers [Infographic]

The FTC's new endorsement guidelines for sponsored content rests on a simple assumption: consumers are likely to react differently to recommendations that come from trusted friends (or social media stars) than from people who receive compensation to endorse a product. To that end, the FTC is attempting to create more transparency in sponsored social media content by placing more onus on brands (and in some cases, on influencers too) to openly divulge the relationship between companies and the digital stars who recommend their products or services.

While the FTC now offers more guidance on exactly what it expects proper disclosure to look and/or sound like—the agency even published a simple Q&A to address marketers' basic concerns—the ever-changing nature of social media makes establishing a set of clear-cut rules nearly impossible. Instead, the FTC offers a number of guidelines that brands can follow to convey a reasonable degree of transparency to digital media/social media consumers.

Based on our experience developing sponsored social media content for global brands, we've identified what we believe to be the most important FTC endorsement rules below.

Case Study: The 100 Top Instagram Influencers’ Engagement Rates

Case Study: The 100 Top Instagram Influencers’ Engagement Rates

Top Instagram Influencers Vs Brand Channel Engagement Study

This post is the preface for our forthcoming 6-part case study series, "Instagram Influencer vs. Brand Channel Engagement Rates" where we share original market data and actionable insights. For the remainder of the series, latest news, and trends on top Instagrammers, YouTubers, Facebook creators, & Snapchatters, subscribe to our industry digest newsletter!

Top Instagram Influencers vs. Brand Channel Engagement Rates: A 2016 Marketing Case Study Series

With the recent launch of Instagram Stories (a near copy-cat of rival Snapchat’s Stories), Facebook-owned Instagram is once again cementing its position as a dominant social media app and top publishing platform for brands, influencers, and users alike. In June 2016, Instagram reached 500 million monthly users with 300 million daily users, doubling upon itself in just 2 years. Since debuting Stories, Instagram has launched “Events” (a Snapchat Live-like feature), and users can now zoom in on all photos and videos.

Instagram Monthly User Growth 500 Million

Shortly after the launch of Instagram Stories, several top social media influencers lauded this new functionality as it enables them to post the type of popular Snapchat content all on one platform with added discoverability and audience reach benefits. Brands, too, have been quick to adopt Instagram Stories using it similarly to Snapchat yet reaching much more expansive audiences on their Instagram brand channels.

With a bevy of added features, functionality, and a large monthly active user base, it is likely that both brand and influencer channels will experience an increase in Instagram engagement rates. While there are several studies that exist detailing brands' engagement rates on Instagram, there is little to no data that demonstrate how top Instagram influencers' engagement rates compare.

This information is of value and significance to marketers seeking to advertise on Instagram with influencer marketing as a viable alternative to Instagram's native advertising options and/or to build/supplement a brand's owned media efforts.
