Conversations and headlines surrounding NFTs have increased significantly in the past few years. Brands and marketers are taking notice of this technology. We explore the world of NFTs in this blog post.
What exactly is an NFT?
Without getting into a deep dive into the technology behind NFTs, an NFT or a non-fungible token is a unique digital asset that can't be replaced. We can compare an NFT to a trading card, if you swap it with a friend, you'll get a completely different trading card.
NFTs can be anything from artwork to music, to collectibles and videos. An NFT can even represent a non-tangible item, such as a video, image, or music. Even a Tweet can be considered an NFT!
How Can Social Media Marketers Use NFTs?
NFTs are disrupting the current marketing environment. They challenge marketers to find creative ways to incentivize their audience to engage. A social media marketer can use NFTs to build buzz around their brand by selling digital artwork or offering exclusive content to their audience who buys NFTs.
Are They Worth The Hype?
Pro(+) - "39% of those who use NFTs say they have the best ROI of any channel in their media mix."

Thank You for sharing kvonloesecke!
Definitely. I consider myself to be one of these NFT enthusiasts. Social Media is a vast venue for spreading information about NFTs.
NFTs are items that are individually certified, verifiable, and non-interchangeable. Possessing a unique identifier and data, they are one-of-a-kind structures with typically a single owner at any given time.
NFTs are actually now becoming a trend because of some social media influencers, as well as a certain well known brand. They have already begun to hop on this trend.
In addition, NFTs can improve a brand's reputation, promote a product launch or company event, or serve as a form of client appreciation in the form of a unique customized gift or coupon.
