Consumers are now spending more time with digital media than any other channel — even TV -- and advertisers are following suit. This presentation focuses on three key digital tactics: site direct display, digital video, and paid social. Specifically it covers the history of these channels, when and why to use them, how to plan and buy for them, and the tools at our disposal for activating and trafficking the buy.

  38. 38. SOCIAL
  39. 39. HOW TMK DOES SOCIAL We believe a sound social strategy is one that recognizes paid, earned and owned channels as part of an interconnected program. Siloed strategies that treat each channel independently are rarely as effective as a comprehensive approach. Within the paid social channel, we tend to organize our activities in terms of three broad categories: • Targeting • Amplification • Optimization
  40. 40. TARGETING We have broad experience buying media across Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and the major and minor social publishers.We work with top-tier managed ad buying platforms with full Publishing API and listening ability.We employ audience interest targeting, based on real-time conversation data (when available) and refined by demographic targeting, to target ads to existing and potential audiences.
  41. 41. AMPLIFICATION We believe that one of the best uses of paid social media is amplification of owned / organic postings, and that these amplifications need to happen within a relatively short window (often 24 hours) after the original post. Our goal is to achieve maximum engagement at the lowest cost-per-engagement.
  42. 42. OPTIMIZATION We take a goal-based approach to paid social campaigns, employing the bidding and optimization engines of our partners to focus campaign budgets toward best performing segments.

  51. 51. IN SUMMARY 1. Leverage what each tactic does best when making purchase decisions 2. Video is growing beyond just a creative unit; consider video’s impact as a lead tactic 3. While a channel, social is about employing the right strategies as much as it is about executing the right tactcs
