How does ShareChat TV benefit brands?
Brands are on a continuous lookout for engaging and impactful mediums to narrate their brand stories and drive higher traction. Creators, due to their relatability and authenticity, enjoy a highly engaged audience. With ShareChat TV, brands will be able to showcase their message through in-stream ads in the creator videos. ShareChat’s booming creator community of over 3.2 Cr creators along with a growing pool of publishers will ensure accessibility to relevant audiences at scale.
The advanced AI and Machine Learning capabilities of ShareChat generates recommendations for its users keeping in mind their choices and preferences. This leads to active engagement and higher time-spent on content. For brands it means that they can target audiences in a controlled manner..
The algorithm for in-stream ads is targeted to help increase relevance and engagement. For example: An ad for a fitness brand would be streamed within a fitness video and for a beauty brand would be streamed within a grooming and beauty video. This leads to a highly contextual placement of brand message, thereby increasing the likelihood of the ad being watched to completion and higher view through rates.
In addition to in-stream ads, brands can also opt for the click through option, an interactive overlay that appears over an ad, encouraging the viewer to visit the brand’s website or social media page to achieve the lower funnel marketing objective.
