Influencer marketing is all the rage right now, and brands are looking to capitalize on it! The branded content tool and ads are one way to maximize the impact of influencer marketing.
What is Branded Content?
Brands enlist the help of a number of top influencers to create engaging content that will help promote their brand. Influencers work with brands on Instagram and other social media platforms in exchange for (usually monetary) compensation for posting the branded video/picture on their page. Branded content is a type of content that is entirely funded by brands. Influencers, on the other hand, must disclose this partnership via the branded content tool. Branded content has emerged as a critical component of influencer marketing strategies.
According to a Facebook for Business survey, 44% of Instagram users learn about new products and services through branded content.
It has a higher level of engagement and reaches: Even though posting and sharing content is necessary, it is inefficient for developing a social media presence. Branded content can help you reach new audiences and bring your brand to the forefront of their minds. This can also be improved by converting your branded content into branded content ads.
It’s more transparent and trustworthy: Creators devote a significant amount of time and effort to cultivating an engaged and loyal community of followers. As a result, the creator’s endorsement of a brand has a huge positive impact on their followers – it’s like digital word of mouth: transparent and trustworthy. Indeed, social media users are aware of the brand deal, as evidenced by the “paid partnership” tag on Instagram.
Optimization Potential: The brand will be able to view campaign results and metrics in Facebook Ads Manager, and these insights can help drive better results.
Creates an emotional connection: Storytelling is an art form, and several top influencers are modern-day storytellers. When they talk about our product, they create a personality and story around it, causing people to become emotionally invested. Such branded video and its effect are difficult to achieve in other forms of advertising.
The Instagram Branded Content Tool
Collaboration with Instagram brands is a great marketing tool nowadays. The goal of branded content is to make it easier for influencers and brands to collaborate.
- Creators disclose their brand partnerships while sharing content, which usually appears on the Instagram page with the tag “paid partnership.” This aids in achieving transparency with the audience.
- Brands gain access to analytics (insights) into how the branded video/image is performing, allowing them to make better decisions in the future.
When you enable the branded content tool, the post will be tagged with ‘paid partnership with (brand name).’ Because it is linked to your Instagram account, this will direct followers to your page.
How Do Start Using Instagram Branded Content Ads?
If this is the creator’s first time working with a brand, they must configure their settings to form a partnership. The brand must then approve the creator’s request to tag them, and the creator must have an Instagram business account in order to do so.
Steps to take:
- Navigate to your Instagram account settings and select ‘Branded Content.’ Toggle the ‘Require Approvals’ switch to the on position. The creator’s handle can then be added to the list of “Approved Accounts.” Once you’ve finished these steps, click the ‘Done’ button.
- The following step is to publicise the creator’s post. During post creation, the creators should enable the ‘Allow Business Partner to Promote’ option, which is found under ‘Advanced Settings.’
- Following that, the brand can create the advertisements. Some of the available ad objectives include brand awareness, reach, video views, traffic, and post engagement.
- Go to Ads Manager and create a campaign. Under the ‘Ad Set’ section, click on the ‘Use Existing Post’ option. Find the creator’s post under ‘Branded content’ and hit on ‘Continue’. Once the preview looks fine, the ad can be set up.
