Did you know that an estimated 85% of all Americans are using the web to search for various products and services? This is precisely why a company’s website and where it stands during the search process is so critical. While we rely heavily on the web, we may not realize just how many companies are reaching out to us and influencing our decisions. Today, the most used search engines are Google, Bing, and YouTube, and we don’t anticipate that changing any time soon.
YouTube has been steadily gaining popularity since its inception in 2005, and it’s a great way to market your business. If you’re a frequent YouTube visitor, or even if you’re not and you’ve only watched a video or two, you’ve most likely seen an advertisement appear before a video plays. As annoying as they may seem, they have proven to be a highly effective marketing tactic.

Anyone who uses the internet is familiar with remarketing advertising. They may not know the technical term, but they will have noticed that they are shown ads that remind them about the products or services offered on websites they have recently visited. Although some people will say that they don’t like these ads for one reason or another, they are very effective at bringing people who are interested in your brand back to your website or to your physical location to close a sale.
Snapchat, launched in 2011, is a photo- and video-sharing app that’s all the rage with millennials and Gen Z. The app allows users to take pictures, record 10-second long videos, add a text or drawing, and then send them to a list of contacts. The images also “disappear” after 10 seconds, but here’s the catch; users are able to take a screenshot with their smartphone and save the image or video in picture form. Users create a Snapchat Story, which encompasses multiple Snaps in one day to create a narrative. However, recipients can view a Story an unlimited amount of times in just 24 hours, and then they’re “gone.”
