You’ve spent months developing a new product, brand, ad campaign, or message, and now you’re ready to introduce it to the world. Research by Twitter and Bain & Company shows that only 15% of brands are launching effectively and meeting their desired KPIs.1 The rest are recycling the same tired tactics and getting diminishing returns on their investments.
The good news? Brands that include Twitter in their launch plans are 2.3X more likely to meet their KPIs.
Why? Today’s competitive and fast-paced landscape requires a different approach to launches, and that’s where Twitter steps in. People on Twitter are influential and receptive. They’re more likely to discover, purchase, and share new products with friends and family than people on other major social platforms.2
As the following success studies show, Twitter is a critical component of successful launches for everything from the latest model in an automotive line to a new fragrance, film, mobile app, store location, candy bar, and more.
More than ever, marketers must work harder to break through the clutter, generate buzz, and move consumers from consideration to conversion. That’s why savvy brands start with the people on Twitter when they’re launching something new.
