I’m scrolling through my Instagram feed when I stumble upon an ad for sunglasses. I stop, swipe through the photo carousel, click through to the website and start shopping. The thing is, I own a pair of sunglasses already that I’m actually really fond of. Why am I so interested in these new sunglasses? What is it about Social marketing that is so powerful?
When I reflect on this question I can’t help but think about the emotional frame of mind I'm in when browsing social platforms. It’s an aspirational frame of mind. The reason I'm interested in these new sunglasses is because what I'm being shown is content that has been expertly produced to show me that aspiration...and it works. Understanding your target audiences’ aspirations is very important to the ultimate success of any type of brand messaging.
When we think about time spent on mobile devices we often fail to realize the significant time spent within premium editorial content on the mobile web–which often comes directly from clicking on a link from a social platform. This presents an opportunity for marketers to capitalize on that critical aspirational moment and bridge the gap between social and traditional media platforms.
