What Can You Use Adsy For?
Adsy can be used in so many ways to create an interesting content marketing strategy. Here are a few ways we came up with:
- Storytelling: Use the animations that you can create on Adsy to depict your business story. But before you get down to filming it, have one in place. It could be your business’s rise to success or a great customer experience that you want to share with your prospects. Mix photos, text, stickers, sounds and create one amazing video!
- Promoting: Got a new product/ service to launch or an upcoming event that matters a lot to your business? Create a video that triggers the curiousness in your audience. The idea is to not try and sell your products ‘directly’ right?
- Polling: Want to know what your customers think of your products/ services? Create a poll around the same and instead of the conventional voting, ask them to vote for the characters you make to represent our products/ services. This is a great way of engaging your audience for feedback purposes as it gives you a general idea about their likes and dislikes.
- Inviting: What’s better than asking your audience to interact with you? Create a short clip on how important customer engagement is for you and, how and in what ways you are looking forward to talking to them.
