SocialMedia.Market (SMT) - Influencer marketing on the blockchain

SocialMedia.Market Platform


Blockchain projects in advertising

In the past year, we have seen increasing growth in utility based blockchain projects especially those in the advertising space. According to a recent report from Astronaut Capital, advertising platforms were ranked #6 in terms of ICO funding in 2018. SMT concluded its ICO in March 2018 raising about 10 MN USD - over 70% of the tokens were sold in Japan

Influencer marketing industry

There is no doubt that digital marketing especially via social media platforms is growing at an exponential rate as people spend a large amount of time on these platforms - average time in social networks has grown by over 24% in the past 5 years. This is where influencer marketing is gaining prominence. The current market is observed to lack transparency and without any regulations and is prone to fraud/scams. Further, there is complexity in selection of influencers and ROI analysis

SMT tokens & Influencer marketing across social networks

SocialMedia.Market is creating an ecosystem for advertising campaigns with social media influencers across various social networks enabled via blockchain technology to simplify integration, provide transparency and decrease costs for participants. All operations within the ecosystem will be executed with the SMT token - holding the tokens will also grant them access to further analytical data, exclusive insights, special advertising formats, content development tools, exclusive advertising contracts, etc in addition to decrease in platform fees for executing campaigns

Competition - Indahash

Indahash is another project that operates in the same industry - however it is focused on building ad campaigns for its clients with instagram influencers only. On the other hand, SMT is opened for various other platforms on every major social network
