Campaigns that Changed and Ignited Conversation

Social media has planted the seed for a new business-consumer relationship to flourish. Now that consumers have the power to respond to campaigns and voice their opinions, the smarter brands will listen and respond accordingly in a transparent manner so that the right messages are being promoted to influential generations.

There is no doubt that social media will continue to play a hugely influential role in the lives of younger generations in 2020 therefore, brands should not take this responsibility lightly. Brands must continue to focus on adapting and strengthening their conversation to promote the best possible message to their audience.

Data vs. Creativity - can you have both?

The age-old battle of data vs. creativity has left marketers unsure of how they can reach the right audience, with the right message at the right time. However, our article found that the answer lies in the alignment, not the battle, of data and creativity.

At CLICKON, we work on fusing workflow technology with production craft through our end-to-end service of creative, production, and distribution all from our agile teams in-house, successfully achieving the ideal data and creative alignment.

What Metrics will replace ‘Likes’ on Instagram?

When social media giants Facebook and Instagram first came to the scene, ‘likes’ were considered the most recognisable element of social acceptance and to this day, they begrudgingly still are held in far too high regard.

The move to hide the ‘likes’ count from all users apart from the creator has been tested in certain countries across the two platforms and as a result, has left brands, creators, and influencers alike all questioning their social strategy.

Is the new currency to replace ‘likes’ measuring ‘attention’ instead, and will this encourage focus back to creating genuine connections with fellow users once more? Only time will tell, but 2020 brings brands the perfect opportunity to reassess the metrics they value.
