How Far Have You Utilized Shortform Content?

February 2, 2024
Shoplive's shortform solution allows brands and businesses to easily adapt shortform content into their platforms, thereby extending users' time spent on the platform and offering opportunities to discover new interests or needs. Ultimately, this contributes the development of strategies that positively influence purchasing decisions.

Brands and businesses are constantly evolving and diversifying their strategies to secure customers online. Marketing tools such as social media marketing, email marketing, paid advertising, and search engine optimization (SEO) are continually being refined. Among these, marketing strategies utilizing shortform video content on platforms like TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube, are gaining significant attention. Businesses across all sectors are leveraging shortform content to aim for increased views and viral effects, and some are further using this content in paid advertising to enhance conversion rates.

It is also crucial to attract potential users from third-party platforms to one's own platform. However, what is equally important is maximizing the time users spend on the platform once they have arrived. Just as users easily spend time on various social media platforms, businesses need to maximize user retention time on their platforms as well. From this perspective, users can be broadly categorized into goal-oriented users and discovery-oriented users, each requiring tailored strategies.

Goal-oriented users have a clear purpose to purchase a specific product, while discovery-oriented users browse the platform without a specific purpose and make purchases when they find products they like. Previously, businesses focused on capturing customers through paid advertising and targeting due to users' indecision on where to purchase desired products. However, beyond aligning with the ultimate goals of users, there is a new perspective that brands and businesses must consider: triggering the latent purchasing desires of users who have entered the platform. This approach allows users to discover new interests or needs they were unaware of, encouraging them to spend more time on the platform. Considering the various potentials of shortform content, Shoplive has made it easy for brands and businesses to integrate shortform content into their platforms in diverse ways.

Recently, 11ST, one of leading online market places in South Korea, introduced a new service called 'Play,' leveraging Shoplive's shortform solution to offer shopping content enjoyed in shortform within the application. 'Play' allows users to view a variety of shortform videos related to product reviews, recommended products, usage methods, as well as tips on travel and daily life. Currently, thousands of videos have been uploaded, including content created by professional content creators, videos from sellers, and 11ST's own original productions. Furthermore, 11ST plans to actively incorporate customer-generated content, such as product review videos, into 'Play.' This initiative enables users who enter the 11ST application to explore various contents through 'Play' just like they would on existing shortform video platforms like TikTok, naturally increasing their time spent on the app and potentially leading to additional purchases beyond the products they initially intended to buy.
