Data Collection In Digital Advertising And Social Stories

Danny O'Reilly First-Party Data, Zero-Party Data

As click-through rates for digital advertising has languished at a lowly 0.06% for several years, brands require a new way to connect with digital consumers. But the nadir for digital advertising wasn’t the medium, more the method.

As internet users have grown up, traditional digital advertising has not matured with them. In the scramble for eyeballs, brands sought to push their message wider and louder into increasingly intimate contexts without thinking about how to actually engage with the modern consumer. And as a direct consequence, a status quo of banner-blindness and ad blocking tech adoption ensued.

The answer isn’t to fire out even more ads, but to find a way to allow users to engage with content within the ad, without interfering with their online experience. Fortunately Wayin has the solution.

Interactive Social Stories With Data Capture

Social Stories have rapidly become the newsfeed for socially savvy consumers. Flexible and timely, they beat any algorithm shifts as they appear chronologically, and crucially encourage direct engagement over passive consumption.

These snapshots and playful videos are boasting engagement rates 2-3x higher than traditional posts and are seen by more sets of eyeballs.

However there’s a disconnect, upon swiping up on current iterations ads in Social Stories landing pages take 5 seconds to load. A user experience issue for the instant gratification generation.
