💪Overcoming Growth Plateaus: How DTC Brands Can Scale Beyond Traditional Channels

Many DTC brands Face a common challenge: plateaued growth on traditional advertising platforms like Meta and Google. They needed to reach new customers beyond these channels to drive further growth and increase revenue. 

But how? 

Diversifying Your Ad Strategy: 

Before diving into what Bedrop did to overcome this challenge, here are a few solutions that can help any DTC brand facing similar issues:

1. Leveraging Native Advertising: Native ads seamlessly integrate with the editorial content of premium publisher sites, providing a non-intrusive and engaging way to reach potential customers.

The Breakdown:

  • Video's Dominance: Video content now accounts for over half of the time users spend on Instagram. The platform aims to foster a participatory experience by encouraging users to share and discuss videos.

  • AI-Driven Content Discovery: Instagram is increasingly recommending content from accounts users don't follow, aiming to showcase exciting and relevant posts beyond the user's immediate network.

  • Sends per Reach: The metric "sends per reach" has become crucial for determining a post’s reach, highlighting a shift towards private sharing and engagement.

  • Healthy Content Ranking: Instagram prioritizes ranking content that is shared within private circles over widely shared posts to promote a positive and healthy user experience.

  • Sound Off Viewing: Around half of all video impressions on Instagram are viewed without sound, emphasizing the need for compelling visual content.

These insights highlight Instagram’s strategic shift towards video content, AI-driven discovery, and robust support for creators. Emphasizing private engagement and healthy content, Instagram aims to enhance user experience and foster a supportive community for creators.
