Announcing New Platform Updates including Facebook Live and Video Analytics

As Delmondo turns two years old this month, we have seen massive shifts in the social video space. When our company launched Snapchat didn’t sell any ads, Facebook was just starting their ascent to becoming a video powerhouse, and we were only just starting to hear rumblings of the birth of a new live streaming movement.

Now video is growing faster than ever – in just the past year alone smartphone video data usage has tripled with millennial viewers. If you believe our client Cisco (like we do), 75% of the world’s mobile traffic will come from video viewership by 2020 and those same millennials will be growing up with new video consumption habits.

Big brands are taking interest, but is Snapchat ready for its closeup?

There was a time when advertisers were afraid of Snapchat. But in early 2016, the once-naughty app is snapping up mainstream advertisers looking to get on one of the hottest digital platforms.

Case in point: In November, Procter & Gamble’s CoverGirl used Snapchat for a geo-targeting campaign with retailer Alta. Consumers who visited most of the retailer’s 868 locations could put a branded filter over their post that included a callout to CoverGirl. Coca-Cola has also run advertising on Snapchat in recent months, joining pioneers on the platform like Taco Bell, which joined Snapchat in early 2013. Another P&G brand, Playtex, ran its first Snapchat campaign in the fourth quarter.

“We have multiple advertisers that are interested in Snapchat,” says Max Kalehoff, CMO of SocialCode, a digital advertising firm that works with Heineken, Macy’s and Visa, among others. Kalehoff says that advertisers (he declined to say which) see Snapchat as integral for “driving brand objectives.”

Others echo that sentiment. “We’ve been doing this for a year now and mainstream brands are really starting to get involved,” said Nick Cicero, founder and CEO of Delmondo, an agency that links brands with Snapchat influencers. “It’s really just becoming more commonplace.”


Turning SnapChat Analytics Into Triumph: An Interview With Nick Cicero Of Delmondo

In a world where audience favor constantly changes, Nick Cicero makes sure that his company keeps pace. Cicero, CEO of Delmondo, a multi-platform creator network and technology company, saw that marketers were struggling to find meaningful data inside of newer platforms like SnapChat. “Without formal analytics,” Cicero says, “a complicated platform like SnapChat can be hard for marketers to dive right into.” This is made especially true as native brand analytics do not yet exist.

Which is why Cicero built the Delmondo Product Suite, turning the 6 billion daily views that SnapChat boasts into key metrics that measure how many people are viewing a user’s stories, completion rates and more. In rolling out the Creator Studio Product Suite, Delmondo has married creator content with technology in other brilliant ways. An integration with Levelwaretechnology allows brands to send projects, negotiate contracts and sign legal agreements with creators, streamlining brand and creator collaboration and adding transparency unseen in influencer marketing before.

I sat down with Cicero to talk to him about the future of social media marketing, and how his company became the powerhouse that it is today.

What is the basis of what Delmondo does in the social media marketing space? 

We provide a platform for brands and media companies to find and contract the most relevant influencers to produce content together, and analytics tools to measure the results of that co-created content. We have worked with brands like Jolly RancherPriceline.com20th Century FoxThe Ad CouncilCinnabon, and JBL Audio.

How did you get started with the company? 

I started the company about a year ago. I had just left a job as Director of Client Strategy at Expion (a social software company that was recently acquired by Sysomos) where I worked with media companies like UnivisioniHeartRadio and SyFy on their social analytics strategies using our software. Before that I was working on Livefyre; I was their first strategist and helped build the use cases around their curation technology. Actually, the decision to build Delmondo’s product suite is really inspired by the great experience working on that small team when I was at Livefyre.
