Invest in social, along with native
Users spend 10x to 20x more time on social media compared to the time they spend on news media. Given that, it is recommended to invest in both native (on-platform) and social footprint and sell both as part of direct ads.
- Direct sales. Micro-celebrities can charge brands anywhere from Rs. 30,000 to a lakh for a social media post. Top cricketers charge a couple of crores for a post on their social media handles. This is especially true for videos.
- Subscriptions. Referral traffic from Twitter tends to give much higher subscription conversions compared to traffic from other sources like Facebook.
