  • Brands’ competition is at its peak during the holiday season, and the race has already started. 

    Over the last five years, holiday sales in November and December have averaged about 19% of total retail sales*, most of which were driven successfully by influencer marketing strategies. More precisely, 49%* of Christmas sales happen during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but there’s still that 51%* will purchase all the Christmas gifts during the following month.

    Holiday influencer marketing campaigns are typically prepared well in advance to benefit from this crucial sales period.

    How to approach Christmas campaigns

    From micro- to nano-influencer to macro-influencers, as a brand, you will see that the ones that click with your values and vision are the perfect fit for your campaign.

    Influencer Marketing has become a much more complex solution than it used to be. This is why we want to share the essential tips to succeed in the Holiday season campaign.

    Technology is there, then use it!

    Since 2013 at SamyRoad, we have developed predictive technology aimed at enabling brands to understand crucial variables such as Brand Affinity, an index that quantifies the affinity between the brand itself, the influencer and the audience, or the Content Affinity, which means the identification of the subjects with the highest volume of mentions and interactions through social listening.

    Be emotional and diverse, be authentic. 

    Influencer marketing is not just about finding the right influencer; we must remember that the message and the way we communicate are essential too. 

    Our target audience is slowly losing their capability of attention, it’s hard to accept, but it’s true: they feel overwhelmed. When you think of all the messages they see simultaneously, only the ones that reach their mind will succeed. 

    Entertainment is king

    Entertain your audience, and make it exciting for them while you keep the brand’s values on point.

    Stay away from the static world; try experimenting and introducing the video format to your campaigns. 

    Think out of the box. 

    Paid media must be part of your brand’s strategy to increase traffic, sales, and a conversation around your product and brand. You will reach your target and future audiences faster through paid media, especially if you use it accurately and truthfully. The more tools you can use for a more successful influencer campaign, the better outcome you will get from it. 

     It’s time to make a choice: consideration or performance

    It is essential that there is strategic planning in your influencer marketing campaign to be able to define an action plan that is aligned with what the brand expects to obtain from the campaign.

    That’s why as a brand manager you need to define what you expect to obtain from the campaign and whatever you decide it should be easily linked to any of these two goals: consideration or performance.



    Consideration campaigns

    Back to the basics. When you look for a higher consideration towards your brand, you need to either educate or re-educate your customers on all the benefits and features that your brand, products or services offer. Once your audience knows all these positive things about your brand, you need to ensure that they are aware of them during the purchase process and ready for any problem or urgency. 

    Here are the main tips to boost the consideration of your brand: 

    Be part of the influencer’s storytelling 

    As a brand, we cannot intervene as outsiders inside the influencer’s storytelling; you need to be part of it. It needs to feel natural, not an imposed collaboration. The more the brand lives inside the influencer’s story, the more the audience will believe in your brand. 

    Use your product to generate higher empathy

    Create content based on moments or situations the audience will experience in the coming days. Content that empathizes with the audience generates a greater bond with them. The more authentic and relatable content, the more your audience will listen to what you say. 

    Teach your audience how to use your product or when its best to use or consume it, especially for these special dates. 

    If you are in the  food industry, have your influencers cook the perfect Christmas recipe with your product. If you’re in the makeup industry, have your influencers show how they will use your product for New Year’s Eve. 

    Explore the power of Hashtags

    Choose your format according to the medium you will use, and remember the power of hashtags. Using a hashtag that sticks throughout the campaign will make it easier for your audience to track you. It’s a way of organizing your content under the same folder. 

    Performance campaigns

    We’ve seen during black Friday how influencers not only shared a discount for specific brands but also shared which products they love from the brand. This helped users choose the product from the brand because their influencer uses it.

    Make the audience desire the product.

    The more the influencer leads and guides how to use and when to use specific products, the more the audience will feel like buying them.

    Guide the audience through the influencer.

    Using a live format, having the influencer create live content and giving your audience a testimonial about specific products will help them decide and buy the product in less time. 

    Be accessible, always.

    The more accessible the audience to access the products, the more traffic your website will get. Therefore make sure that your social media links to your website and your Instagram shop, and make your audience swipe up their favourite.

    “How to create the perfect influencer marketing campaign? Combining all the mediums and platforms we have and constantly reinventing ourselves through creative strategies. And by not living by the book and experimenting with different formats such as case studies, Ebooks, In-person events, podcasts, videos and other types of content.”

    Ricky Pombo Head of Brands & Campaign Strategy At Samy Alliance
  • It is undeniable that today’s creativity and advertising go hand in hand with social media platforms. The familiarity that this new way of targeting the consumer transmits has managed to achieve an even more significant impact in a short time than traditional media. However, is it worth it when it comes to generating content? The answer is no. Although the platforms have achieved excellent results in recent years, the truth is that the consumer needs new stimuli. The excess of advertising is becoming increasingly exhausting and is beginning to generate rejection among the audience.

    How to solve it? Brands are transparent; creativity must be the main ingredient for Influencer Marketing campaigns to be accepted naturally and organically. And the primary goal of campaigns with influencers is to generate brand awareness and increase engagement with their audiences. This has raised different debates within agencies about influencers’ participation in the creative process of campaigns. After all,  they know their followers and what works for them.

    Influencers as a creative part of the process

    It is impossible not to have heard of the latest advertising campaign for the Spanish food service start-up specializing in hamburgers: Vicio. A campaign around a play on words with the name of the competition (GOIKO) and the leading influencer (Jessica Goicoechea). 

    “This is the first campaign of this style that we carried out in Vice, and we wanted to be faithful to our style. Having Jessica as the first visible face of Vice could not make us more excited since we both share values and principles when it comes to communicating. At Vicio, we are natural and honest, and we like to define our style as “Elegant Flash”. We believe that our values fit perfectly with Jessica and with the content she creates”, points out its Co-founder and Co-CEO.

    This campaign is a clear example of how unity is strength since it meets all the requirements for success; creativity, innovation and ingenuity through its key protagonist, the influencer Jessica Goicochea.

    Influencers and creativity: the main characters 

    In addition to the Vicio campaign, we find other brands where the strategy spins around creativity, such as the Nutella campaign. In it, not only does creativity stand out, but also the correct choice of the protagonists to transmit the messages. Through “We have good things at home”, the campaign vindicates our land’s beauty, honouring our country’s unique landscapes thanks to its special edition jars. For this, the Samyroad agency created a strategy where everything took place in creating a space called “Casa Nutella”. A set of fun and educational activities were carried out by a group of influencers from different parts of the country, including Tania Llasera, Tomas Páramo, Alma Obregón and Barbesito, who transmitted the event through his Twitch account. This experiential event, where the influencers enjoyed different challenges related to our country’s landscapes and cooking, was a complete success thanks to the fact that it reached the audience in an organic, distinctive and creative way, providing value and content.

    These campaigns are clear benchmarks of how creativity in Influencer Marketing is, without a doubt, one of its cornerstones. With it, we not only manage to generate value in the audiences and position brands, but it also allows us to win over influencers when transmitting their messages. As we mentioned earlier, no one knows their followers better than they do, and nothing is more motivating for them than participating and being part of campaigns where they have a fundamental role and are listened to give their audience the quality content they deserve.

  • TikTok Ads: How to get started

    Date: October 31, 2022

    Category: Social Media

    TikTok Ads provides you with plenty of options to advertise on the platform. But first of all, it is important to recognize that TikTok has taken the internet by storm in recent months and a few years, and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down. 

    The platform has been downloaded over 2 billion times and has over 800 million active monthly users. 

    And with users spending an average of 52 minutes per day on the app, it’s no wonder that brands are starting to take notice and need to invest.

    If you’re thinking about using TikTok for your business, here’s everything you need to know about getting started with TikTok advertising.

    What is TikTok Advertising?

    As with other social media such as Facebook Ads, TikTok has launched its ad manager, called TikTok Ads or TikTok Business, to help brands and consumers with their campaigns and advertisements. 

    TikTok Advertising is a new and exciting way to reach out to potential customers on the popular short-form video app. 

    With over 800 million active users, TikTok offers businesses a huge opportunity to reach a wide range of people with their advertising campaigns. 

    Getting started with TikTok Advertising is easy and can be done in just a few simple steps.

    First, businesses need to create a TikTok account and start creating engaging content that will resonate with their target audience. 

    Once they have a solid following, they can then start running ads on the platform. TikTok offers a variety of ad types, so businesses can experiment to find what works best for them.

    TikTok and its audience diversity

    As TikTok becomes more and more popular, it’s important to remember that there is a diversity of audiences using the platform. 

    While some users are there for entertainment purposes, others are using it as a tool for marketing, networking, or even education. 

    It’s important to consider your audience when creating content for TikTok, as different types of users will be looking for different things. 

    Keep this in mind as you create content, and you’ll be sure to appeal to a wide range of users.

    TikTok is attracting a more diverse audience than other social media platforms for a number of reasons. 

    Firstly, the platform is extremely user-friendly and easy to use, making it accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. 

    Secondly, TikTok offers a wide range of content, from funny clips and videos to educational content and vlogs. 

    This means that there is something for everyone on the platform, regardless of their interests. 

    Finally, TikTok is constantly innovating and evolving, which keeps users engaged and coming back for more. 

    As a result, it is no surprise that TikTok is quickly becoming one of the most popular social media platforms around.

    Check some numbers:

    • 57% of Tiktok users are women and 43% are men. 
    • 43% of Tiktoks global audience is between 18 and 24 years old  
    • 32% of its users are between 25 and 34. 
    • Only 3.4% of Tiktoks audience is over the age of 55. 
    • 138 million users are from the United States. 
    • 21% of Americans have said that they have used tiktok in 2021. 
    • 90% of tiktok users visit the ap more than once in a day. 
    • Bytedance, the company that owns tiktok, has a collection of apps that has over 1 billion total monthly active uses.

    The Different Types of TikTok Ads

    There are 3 main types of TikTok ads: in-feed, branded content, and hashtag challenges. In-feed ads are the most common and appear in between users’ videos. 

    Branded content ads are sponsored videos from influencers or brands that are clearly marked as ads. 

    Hashtag challenges are creative campaigns that encourage users to submit videos using a specific hashtag.

    Also, we have picked out the various types of TikTok Ads so you can choose what will be most effective in reaching your target audience. 

    In-feed video 

    These are ads that appear for TikTok users on the “For You” page.

    Brand takeover 

    This kind of ad is called “brand takeover” and enables you to dominate the conversation by taking up the whole screen for a few seconds. It then turns into a video ad.

    Spark ads 

    TikTok launched this ad type in 2021, giving brands the ability to sponsor organic content created by influencers who engage with audiences about that brand and its products.

    Image ads 

    Brands can place image ads in video ads that will appear on news-feed apps that are accessible through TikTok: BuzzVideo, TopBuzz and Babe.

    Video ads 

    These ads appear full-screen videos of 5 to 60 seconds in a user’s “For You” feed.

    Pangle ads 

    Pandle, a video management platform integrated with TikTok, offers different options for you to promote your videos on the platform. 

    By using video ads, you can target any audience from a specific country or demographic.

    Carousel ads 

    These ads allow you to provide up to 10 images that appear in TikTok’s news feed apps.

    To get started with TikTok advertising, businesses first need to create a profile on the app. Then, they can create an ad and choose their target audience. 

    TikTok offers a variety of targeting options, including location, age, gender, interests, and behaviors. 

    Once the ad is created, businesses can choose to run it as a promoted video or as an in -app photo story with multiple images

    The Different Types of TikTok Advertising Campaigns

    There are a few different types of TikTok advertising campaigns that brands can use to get started with this new and exciting social media platform. 

    For example, some brands choose to run influencer-led campaigns, where they work with popular TikTok users to promote their products or services. 

    Others opt for more traditional advertising methods, like running adverts in between users’ videos.

    Whichever approach you decide to take, it’s important to ensure that your TikTok advertising campaign is well-targeted and engaging. 

    After all, TikTok users are notoriously fickle, and if they don’t like what they see, they’re likely to move on to the next video in a matter of seconds.

    TikTok advertising might feel completely different from the other social platforms you’re advertising on, like the differences from Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. But once you understand how to run ads on TikTok, you could see impressive results for your business.

    Now that you know what TikTok Ads is and how it works, whether you’re a company or an influencer, you can count on an Influencer Marketing team to help you grow. 

    At Samy, we have a community of influencers, who are directed to produce efficient content for your brand, including within TikTok.
