What Is Amazon Spark? What To Know About Amazon’s “Instagram Killer”

Amazon’s New Spark Feature Is Coming For Instagram (But It Probably Won’t Catch It)

On Tuesday, Amazon launched Spark, a new feature in its mobile app that allows users to create and shop feeds according to their interests. The Spark feed is similar to Instagram’s, full of photos, captions, and hashtags. But the intention behind Spark isn’t sharing photos, moments, stories, or thoughts — it’s buying and selling.

There are stories and photos and moments on Spark, but the raison d’être of the feature is to highlight products that are sold on Amazon. Users can post content, comment on, and like (or “smile” as Amazon calls it) like they would on a social network, but Spark, at least for now, is a long way from actually being a social network.

How BuzzFeed, Cosmopolitan, And The New York Times Are Marketing With Social Media Influencers

It isn’t just brands that are using influencers anymore — publishers are getting onboard, too.

Influencers are proven experts when it comes to reaching and engaging audiences, which makes them a natural fit for helping publishers capture audience attention. BuzzFeed, Refinery29, The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, and more are building influencer networks to strengthen the performance of branded content and are even using some influencers in original content to drive traffic and boost advertising demand.

Marketing With Instagram Stories: How 4 Brands And Influencers Used The Feature For Promotion

Since it was introduced last August, Instagram Stories has taken off. Stories allow users to share photos and videos that exist on the platform for 24 hours, then disappear. It’s a feature that’s similar to the central functionality of Snapchat, and the growing popularity has put a serious damper on Snapchat’s growth.

With more than 250 million Instagrammers using the feature every day, Instagram Stories has become a hub of activity and it has brands and influencers innovating how they share sponsored content on Instagram. Though ephemeral messaging presents some problems in measurement and staying power, Instagram Stories may be ideal for capturing a moment in a way that’s natural, urgent, and — at least in some cases — linkable. See how top brands and influencers are working together to bring sponsored content to Instagram Stories.

How Micro Influencers Fit Into The Influencer Marketing Landscape

When we think of influencers, we often think of mega stars with millions of followers on social media. By now, most people on social media are familiar with high-profile influencers posting sponsored content in partnership with major brands, but there’s opportunity in marketing with smaller influencers, too. There have been initial studies supporting higher engagement with micro influencers.

A recent Digiday article highlighted how working with micro influencers can have its pitfalls, though. “Everyone talks about how these “micro influencers” have such high engagement,” an anonymous marketing executive said, “but who cares about a 20 percent engagement rate on a post when only 10 people liked it?”

Micro influencers have been touted for high engagement rates, but as the Digiday article points out, these aren’t the only metrics relevant to marketers. As the influencer marketing industry continues to grow, it’s important that marketers understand the role that micro influencers play in the industry, the pros and cons that come with working with micro influencers, and how they might prove effective for some marketing goals and strategies and ineffective for others.
