Twitter Offers 70% To Creators For Video Ad Revenue

Facebook has time and time again proved to be the king of social media. The social media war between the biggest companies Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube has been in the form of acquiring the largest share of the market and generating revenue from advertising. Twitter currently offers creators 70% of the revenue from ads generated from their videos. The high percentage of the pay from Twitter was meant to attract video stars to help build its video business.

 

 

The Industry analysts are, however, raising eyebrows about the pay structure being used by Twitter to a product being offered by its larger rivals. Twitter’s strategy raises the question whether the advertisers will have to pay more for the ads than on Facebook and YouTube. Twitter opened the video ad program last year for publishers and on Tuesday, it extended the program to individual creators who want to make money from the program the same way people earn on YouTube and Facebook.

 

 

The strategy by Twitter will be similar to what Facebook and YouTube are offering. Twitter will place ads alongside creator’s videos, and the creators will benefit from the 70% of the ad revenue and Twitter will keep the remaining 30%. While Twitter is paying better than its rivals, this strategy might not end up making more money for the company than its competitors. Reports indicate that advertisers are pressing Twitter to lower its video rates.

 

 

YouTube and Facebook offer creators 55% of the revenue. The recent push by the advertisers to force Twitter to reduce its prices may impact negatively to Twitter’s revenue, and the company may be compelled to reduce the percentage given to the creators. There is also the number of people targeted by these videos. Facebook and YouTube have more users and hence more people are expected to watch the videos than Twitter. Creators may be forced to make a choice between going to Twitter for higher revenue or remain on Facebook and YouTube for a bigger number of clients.

 

 

Twitters strategy is still a big idea considering it is a platform that will offer a supplementary revenue stream for creators. Producers stand to benefit even more because they have the option to place the same videos to YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. It is yet another platform for diversification for creators which means more revenue for them.

Twitter Has Started Using Stickers On Ads For Brands

Twitter has introduced the use of promoted stickers for advertising other brands both on people’s content feeds and the actual content. While social media advertising primarily uses the strategy of brands placing adverts on people’s content feeds, Twitter has taken its model a step ahead to advertise brands into the actual content. Twitter is responding to what its competitors such as Snap-chat and Facebook are doing to increase their advertising revenue

 

 

Twitter is also considering introducing ads on the photos people post on its network. The ads are the branded version of the stickers that Twitter introduced in the mid-2016 for people to add to their photos. The new branded labels enable individuals to click on them to see photos made by other people in the category. Pepsi has already embraced the idea and it has already rolled out ads using Promoted Stickers on Twitter network. Recently, the company posted about fifty branded stickers to Twitter’s stickers library which were accessible in Russia, Mexico, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, India, the United Arab Emirates and the US to promote user engagement with the branded stickers.

 

 

Twitter has now said that only certain brands with their sales reps on Twitter will be able to buy Promoted Stickers. Brands will have the choice to buy four or eight stickers which Twitter will display in its library. Twitter has not revealed the price of these Promoted Stickers which seems weird. However, it is proving to be an effective advertising strategy because if a brand pays for the sticker added to a photo, there are impressions created from the person’s followers. If on the other hand a brand has to pay for everyone who views the branded photo, it could be less of a deal.

 

 

For Twitter, the deal is increased sales assuming that people will embrace the idea and that brands are cool with its pricing structure. It is not the first attempt Twitter has tried this advertising strategy. Twitter had already unveiled the sponsored emojis which brands could also pay for. Earlier in the year, Twitter launched the conversational ad format that would be used by advertisers to enable people to tweet a branded message.
