The Client

Bigo Live is a Gen z focused social media app that allows users to live stream and meet new people. Bigo has been promoted through TikTok by multiple influencers and has since experienced constant growth.

Brainstorming

1. Snapchat: No specific audience or following, low risk low reward. Mostly satisfying or short videos on Snapchat go viral, for this app it is hard to promote it through satisfying videos.

2. Youtube: Audience and following are both present. Low risk Low reward. Youtube engagement rates are very low which limits conversions. Videos that relate to the ads usually don't get many views. Videos completely unrelated from ads don't get the right audience for ad conversions.

3. TikTok: Audience and following are both present. Low risk High reward. TikTok engagement rates are fantastic. The simple UI allows for everything to be done within the app. Videos can do well no matter the topic. Ads can be embedded within the first 30 seconds of the video which leads to higher engagement rates.

Our Solution

Of course, our solution was to use TikTok. Through 4 of our TikTok accounts, we decided to embed ads inside of our videos. We made part 2's for every story to drive higher account engagement and from there, we put the ads in the part 2's. This limits view suppression since all part 2 viewers come from our account and not the For You page. We leave the viewers on a cliff hanger and before telling them what happens next we introduce the ad to them. This makes them more attentive while viewing and also forces them to watch the whole ad since they want to find out what happens next in the story. We also drove engagement to the app itself.

Our Solution

Our approach with TapMob was a little more difficult since we had to get users to fill out long surveys to enter a giveaway. We drew the attention of users by introducing the product first before telling them the long process behind it. The ads were embedded into our videos.
