Launching a Twitter Marketing Campaign
In one year, daily engagement on Twitter grew 14% from 2016, an improvement that it attributes to news feed updates and a more targeted effort towards marketing. By rolling out developments to the Twitter advertising platform such as premium video content sponsorship opportunities and Direct Message marketing, the company was able to skyrocket its revenue to $574 million in Q2 2017.
So what do these updates look like for Twitter advertisers actually launching their campaigns?
Advertising on Twitter begins by selecting the type of promotion you’d like to run and identifying your end goal. There are three different Twitter ad types:
- Promoted Tweets
- Promoted Accounts
- Promoted Trends
The conversion goals for each include driving web traffic, promoting your app, increasing followers, and spreading awareness through impression tracking. These objectives represent the different type of Twitter ad campaigns that are available for businesses.
Promoted Tweets appear at the top of search results, and are an excellent method of increasing engagement and reach. Like other tweets, they can be shared, liked, and interacted with by people that don’t already follow your brand.
Promoted Accounts appear both in the sidebar of Who to Follow and in the timeline of targeted audiences. Instead of promoting a single tweet, a Promoted Account Twitter advertisement puts the company’s entire account in the spotlight. This type of Twitter ad accounts for much of the discovery potential of the platform, with 85% of people stating that Promoted Accounts helped connect them with new brands.
Promoted Trends let brands boost a hashtag to the top of the trending topics list that appears on the left side of the page, within the Discover tab, and in the mobile app. This type of Twitter ad encourages users to use your branded hashtag and thereby spread brand awareness.
