"Audiences today demand video content. With First View, marketers have the ability to connect with their audience through richer forms of communication and creative content, while ensuring that they are constantly top-of-mind on their feeds," said Maya Hari, Senior Director for Product Strategy & Sales, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Emerging Markets. "First View provides advertisers with the opportunity to own the most valuable ad space on our platform on any given day, expanding their reach within a 24-hour period."
When users first visit the Twitter app or log in to twitter.com, the top ad slot in the timelines will be a Promoted Video from that brand. "Word of mouth is more important than ever. Twitter's First View gives Samsung the opportunity to reach a wide audience to generate buzz and conversation about our new #GalaxyS7 and #GalaxyS7edge smartphones. We are able to hit a broad audience with great video content to help drive social momentum," said Philip Newton, Corporate Vice President & CMO Samsung Electronics Australia.
"Video is one of the hottest topics for all marketers at the moment. We are delighted to see exciting products being launched by Twitter, giving us more opportunities to build great experience for our audience. The ability of using video to generate global conversations and dominate moments of interest with First View opens up a great playing field, and ties in strongly with Mindshare's vision of Adaptive Marketing," said Quentin Perrot, Senior Account Director APAC, MindShare, the company managing Nike's media strategy in Southeast Asia.
