The Snapchat Renaissance of 2023

May 23rd, 2023 by

Snapchat slipped off the map slightly in the past few years, but new Snapchat updates have given the platform a new lease of life. 

With Snapchat updates including new monetisation features for Snap creators, a brand new AI bestie, larger options for discovery and sharing, and more interactive marketing features, Snapchat is set to become a dream for users, brands and creators. 

Snapchat Updates: Engagement insights

As of 2023, Snapchat has over 383 million active users, and over 350 million Spotlight users, which is also showing a 170% uplift in annual viewership. 

The audience is still skewed towards younger audiences, with the majority aged between 18 and 24, but this can climb up to 35. 

But what are the updates the platform has implemented to keep this number climbing, and more importantly, will they work?

Snapchat Updates: Creator

Creator monetisation: Crystals

Snapchat’s update for creator monetisation has made the platform become a creator favourite, attracting some of social’s biggest names. Snapchat’s Snap Stars revenue stream reportedly splits revenue 50/50—a significantly more lucrative split than other platforms offer. 

Creators within Snap Stars are paid in Crystals—the exchange rate works out to $1 to 10 Crystals, and can be paid out once a creator has earned over 1,000 Crystals (or $100). 

Snapchat also allows Stars to earn through gifts. This is where users essentially tip their favourite creators by sending sticker-like or filter gifts, to even more expensive items like Bitmoji outfits and Lenses. Users need to purchase Snap Tokens in order to send virtual gifts.

Stories Revenue Share Program

Creators with over 50K followers, 25M views, or 12 hours of view time are eligible for Snapchat’s Stories Revenue Share Program. Creators within the program can place ads within their Stories, generating recurring revenue. 

The Program allows users over 18 to share their Story content with friends and a wider audience from one account, and even schedule Stories to go live at any time. Scheduled Stories is particularly useful given Snapchat’s new feature of tagging locations. 

Snapchat Updates: New features 


One of Snapchat’s newest features is MyAI—an artificial intelligence bestie for Snapchatters. The tool can hold a conversation, help you find gift ideas, answer trivia, and more. Users can start a chat with the bot just as they would with a real friend. 

Snapchatters can even bring their AI into group chat conversations by @’ing them, and asking questions on behalf of the group. 

The bot was initially only available to Snap+ subscribers, but has since rolled out to all users. The bot has gone viral on multiple other social platforms for people posting funny conversations, but also for safety concerns. 

The AI bot is still learning and developing, and runs on a custom version of AI tech provided by ChatGPT’s maker OpenAI. The bot can often switch from responsible adult to mischievous friend within the same conversation.

After Dark

After Dark is Snapchat’s edited version of BeReal. It’s where users can make and send content to their friends after 8PM, but recipients can only view the content after posting their own Story. The feature was added to allow users to create a space to “relive last night’s escapades.” 

This feature can not only be used by Snapchatter, but brands. Brands could post exclusive After Dark discount codes and deals to their most loyal fans. 

Snapchat Updates: Marketing opportunities 

AR Enterprises Services (ARES)

ARES allows brands to use AR tech to enhance brand experiences for users through the Shopping Suite. Through the Shopping Suite, users can access three AR elements; the 3D Viewer, AR Try-On, and the Fit Finder. Tools available within the Shopping Suite work in tandem to provide bespoke virtual shopping experiences for brands and users. 

Snapchat has been at the forefront of AR tech since its conception. ARES has made third-party integrations seamless, offering a fluid shopping experience to users that brands can leverage. AR tech makes shopping interactive and fun for users.

The Top Gaming Companies Levelling Up the Industry’s Marketing Efforts

May 17th, 2023 by

The gaming industry has come a long way in recent decades. With the rise in esports popularity, the birth of multiple new streaming platforms and the desire for community now more than ever, the gaming industry is booming, with a few top gaming companies leading the way. 

With an anticipated projected revenue of $365 billion for 2023, much of the industry’s success is synonymous with tech breakthroughs, new business strategies and cleverly-crafted marketing campaigns for launches. 

The rise in gaming marketing agencies is a major contributor to modern-day gaming companies being able to push the creative boundaries when it comes to launches and this blog will pay tribute to the noteworthy campaigns rolled out over the years. 

Keep reading to discover the top gaming companies that have contributed to the immense success of the gaming industry thus far!

The top gaming companies dominating the scene 

Riot Games – K/DA for League of Legends

To promote the League of Legends World Championship in 2018, Riot Games created K/DA, a virtual K-pop group consisting of four themed versions of League of Legends characters, Ahri, Akali, Evelynn and Kia’Sa. 

Voiced by (G)I-dle members, Soyeon and Miyeon, Madison Beer and Jaira Burns, the group was unveiled at the world championships with an augmented reality live performance. Since the campaign’s launch, the performance video has amassed 58M views, and the Pop/Stars music video has reached 551M views. Both videos acted as great adverts for the game, while forming its own fandom, gaining Riot Games more leads than ever before. 

To many, creating an entire K-pop group to promote something might seem far fetched. However, it is definitely worth looking into creating music videos to promote your latest game launch, at least. If the song is good/catchy, it will automatically gain traction and convert solid leads over time.

Bungie – Believe for Halo 3 

Believe is considered to be Halo 3’s most successful ad campaign, featuring a string of video advertisements with the tagline ‘Believe’, beginning September 11th 2007. 

The videos were estimated to cost around $10 million to create and were directed by Rupert Sanders, a legend in the video game advertising industry. A massive diorama spanning 1,200 square feet and 12 feet tall was used to film a single battle scene from the game, with handcrafted human and Covenant figures represented at one-twelfth scale. Halo 3 fans could pan the length of the diorama on the Believe website. 

Over 10,000 retail stores across the US held midnight launch parties for Halo’s release, along with multiple others across the globe. Within the first 24 hours of its release, the game made $170 million in US sales alone, generating the most amount of money than any other American entertainment property up to that point. By 2008, Halo had sold 8.1 million units worldwide and, to date, has sold in excess of 14.5 million copies. 

If you are to take anything from the success of Halo’s Believe campaign, it should be to spend more time on your ad ideas and try to connect them with fundamental human emotions.

Sega – Sega does what Nintendon’t 

To promote the Mega Drive in the early 1990s, Sega sought to battle Nintendo’s market leader position, attaching the slogan “Sega (or Genesis in North America) does what Nintendon’t” to a video ad that highlighted the features of its new gaming console. Take a look:

At the time, Sega knew that all school children and teenagers wanted to be part of the Genesis group, and used emotional, logical and ethical appeal to connect to this. As a result, Sega’s sales amounted to double of its competitor, Nintendo, for four holiday seasons after the ad was released. 

We understand that assigning celebrities to feature in your campaign ads is a little excessive, particularly for small companies, however, regardless of size, all companies can adopt the key aspect of Sega’s ad – highlighting your product features.

Ubisoft – My Life as an NPC for Assassin’s Creed

Ubisoft’s My Life as an NPC campaign is proof that humour is often a great way to drive results. In this social campaign, dozens of NPCs took over Ubisoft’s Facebook and Instagram accounts to share what their life looks like in the game. Here’s an example of the sort of things they produced:

Even if your games don’t have the virality that Assassin’s Creed does, you can still use this quirky, funny and offbeat approach to promote them on social media. Instagram Reels, short videos, social media takeovers etc are all a great way to popularise your game and make it relatable to new and old players alike.

Tips for creating gaming ads

Connect with users through a story

You may have noticed that most of the examples we have shared employ some kind of storytelling in one way or another. The reason for this? Players like to choose games that run a different story from their own. It allows them to escape to another world to de-stress, be entertained or join a new community of like minded players. 

Gaming marketers like to pair their compelling stories with impactful visuals. Check out Playstation’s Double Life advert:

Know your players’ motivations

As a gaming marketer, you should know exactly why people are choosing to play your game. 

For example, if you are promoting a cosy game with stand-out design elements and encourages problem solving, you are most likely looking for casual gamers with interests in design and decor. Taking it one step further, you’ll soon realise that the main motivations for puzzle gamers are thinking, relaxing, passing time and exercising cognitive skills. You should be targeting people with these interests.

Advertise in-game

The best place to market games is within already existing ones. A lot of mobile games nowadays give players the option to watch an ad for more advantages in that game. This is a great way to be seen by more relevant players, increasing your likelihood of more downloads. 

In-game ads are also great for brand awareness. While the largest franchises of games might not be available to smaller businesses, you can target various free-to-play titles instead.

Social worker and queer writer, Zoe, provides TikTok users with endless educational content surrounding almost any and every LGBTQ+ topic you can think of. From explaining queer-related terms to helping others find their identity/sexuality, Zoe makes their content easily digestible.


👋🏻 Here’s your reminder that lesbians don’t have to be women! 🌈 Some people see the identity lesbian as very rooted within the gender binary of man and woman, and so they define lesbian as “women who love women.” And it’s valid for anyone who wants to define it as that — but in truth, the word lesbian can go so much further beyond just the gender binary. There are nonbinary lesbians. Lesbians who might connect to womanhood in a way that’s different from how society traditionally defines it. Lesbians who might connect to manhood! There can be lesbians that connect with any gender— because it doesn’t have to be constricted within that gender binary. As such, some people choose to define lesbian as “non-men who love non-men” — but even that label doesn’t feel comfy for everyone, as it defines lesbianism in opposition to manhood, and it also excludes any lesbians who do connect with manhood in their identity. In the end, you’re allowed to define the word lesbian in whatever way feels most validating for you — while also keeping in mind that anyone of any gender identity can use the label lesbian if that’s what feels best for them!❤️ 💬 How do you define the word lesbian? Do you have any questions about expanding the label beyond the gender binary? 💬 #zoestoller #lesbianvisibilityweek #lesbianvisibilityday #nonbinarylesbiansarevalid

A Month in Beauty: April 2023

April 26th, 2023 by

Welcome back to another beauty roundup! Every month we round up our favourite ads, campaigns, trends, and creators from the social media beauty industry. 

So, who’s been busy in the beauty world this month? 

Trend beauty spotlight

K-beauty snail essence

This summer we’re staying hot and hydrated with COSRX’s Snail Mucin serum. Recently found trending all over #SkinTok, this serum is formulated for hydration, anti-aging and reducing dark spots, promoting an overall healthy glow. The Korean skincare brand took on a creative and playful approach to the product’s promotion through a hashtag challenge titled #SnailDuoShot, which saw participants pose for three ‘shots’ for a chance at winning COSRX products. The hashtag has received 103.6M views and over 19,000 participants.

Pickle skincare

Just when you thought being told hairspray was just as effective for setting makeup as an actual setting spray, the pickle skincare trend came along. Rather than consuming pickles for their natural antioxidants, some users have begun putting the brine directly on their skin or into a DIY facemask. The trend claims to treat acne and remove the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal a healthy, glowing complexion. TikTok skincare trends are usually reliable, but we advise steering clear of this one.


IT ACTUALLY WORKS! I made my own diy face mask out of PICKLES #lootbana

Brand beauty Spotlight

The Beauty Crop

In recent months, the makeup brand The Beauty Crop has secured its place as a staple in everyone’s makeup kits. Trending products include the Oui Cherie Gripping Primer and the Vitamin Babe Loose Setting Powder, along with a multitude of others that continue to sell out on TikTok shop time after time. The most recent collection to be added to The Beauty Crop’s roster is the Pore Filter collection, featuring a primer, pressed powder and mattifying mist, helping people achieve a flawless matte complexion. Much of the brand’s success on TikTok is owed to the high-quality user-generated content that is reposted from the accounts of the most engaged makeup influencers on the platform.

Rare Beauty: Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oils

Our prayers have been answered. Rare Beauty have launched lip oils. Unlike a traditional lip oil, the 8 available shades feel like jelly and melt down into an oil that leaves a beautiful coloured tint on the lips. Rare Beauty has gained a cult following on TikTok, and used influencers to conduct wear tests, show range swatches, and first impressions, which then resulted in a multitude of UGC. The hashtag #RareBeautyLipOil has over 143.3M views.

L’Oreal: Infallible Concealer

The entire Infallible range is no stranger to the internet, but L’Oreal has proved it is the master of trending/viral products once again. The always-on promotion of one of TikTok’s most famous concealers has put it back into circulation on the platform, regaining it viral status. Creators were encouraged to promote the product by using the concealer in creative ways to show off its versatility.

Trend Spotlight

Stop motion makeup

A beauty trend taking over TikTok in March is stop motion makeup, where beauty gurus animate their makeup routine. This is done by stopping to take a photo of every new application and blend before continuing with the rest of the routine to create a stop motion animation technique.
