  5. 5.    Promoted Tweets are ordinary Tweets purchased by advertisers who want to reach a wider group of users or to spark engagement from their existing followers. Promoted Tweets are clearly labeled as Promoted when an advertiser is paying for their placement on Twitter. In every other respect, Promoted Tweets act just like regular Tweets and can be re-tweeted, replied to, favorited and more. Promoted Tweets 6
  6. 6. Users see Promoted Tweets at the following positions on Twitter:  At the top of relevant search results pages on Twitter  In Search Results for a Promoted Trend  Home Timelines of Targeted Users (only if the Tweet is likely to be interesting and relevant to that user)  Official Twitter desktop and mobile clients, including TweetDeck, Twitter for iPhone, and Twitter for Android, among others  Third-party Twitter clients e.g. HootSuite • Any Promoted Tweet people see in their timeline will appear just once, at or near the top of their timeline. Then, the Promoted Tweet will scroll through the timeline like any other Tweet.  Promoted Tweets Contd. 7
  7. 7.   If your goal is to drive a particular action via Twitter, Promoted Tweets can:  Drive website traffic asking users to click on your best content  Offer coupons and deals in the copy of your Tweets  Drive leads using Lead Generation Cards  Promote sales and giveaways On the other hand, If your goal is to drive awareness for your business, Promoted Tweets can do this in a variety of ways:  Expand the reach of your content like blog posts, white papers, and more  Connect with influencers and brand advocates by ensuring they see your content  Promote awareness around events and product launches  Ask for re-tweets to gain an even broader audience for your messages Promoted Tweets – Application 8
  8. 8.   Promoted Accounts are part of Who to Follow, which suggests accounts that people don’t currently follow and may find interesting. Promoted Accounts help introduce an even wider variety of accounts people may enjoy. Because Promoted Accounts boost your follower growth, they are best used when you would like to be more discoverable to people who are likely to love your business. Consistently growing your follower base on Twitter will help you achieve the following goals:  Drive purchases, leads, downloads, and signups - By choosing to follow you, Twitter users are demonstrating an interest in your product. You have an opportunity to connect with them in meaningful ways to drive actions.  Increase brand awareness and word of mouth sharing - When you Tweet valuable content, Twitter makes it easy for your followers to share it with their friends through retweets, driving increase reach and awareness.  Drive web traffic - Once you acquire a paid follower you have the opportunity to engage with them everyday, for free, with your organic Tweets. Your followers are the mostly like to see your Tweets and spend time on your website. Promoted Accounts 9
  9. 9.    Promoted accounts are displayed in three places:  As part of the Who to Follow widget on the left side of your logged-in Twitter.com homepage and Connect tab  On the Who to Follow page, which you can reach by clicking on View all on the Who to Follow widget or tab  People search results  On profile pages as part of the Similar to you widget You may see a Promoted Account as one of the suggestions if a Promoted Account is relevant for you. As with Promoted Trends and Promoted Tweets, this suggestion is labeled as Promoted to distinguish it from other recommended accounts. Promoted Accounts Contd. 10
  10. 10.    Promoted Accounts are suggested based on a user’s public list of whom they follow. When an advertiser promotes an account, Twitter’s algorithm looks at that account’s followers and determines other accounts that those users tend to follow. If a user follows some of those accounts, but not the advertiser’s account, then Twitter may recommend the advertiser’s Promoted Account to that user. Promoted Accounts Contd. 11
  11. 11.    Promoted Trends began as an extension of our Promoted Tweets platform, and are now a full-fledged product in their own right. With Promoted Trends, users see time-, context-, and event-sensitive trends promoted by our advertising partners. These paid Promoted Trends appear at the top of the Trending Topics list on Twitter and are clearly marked as "Promoted.“ Users interact with Promoted Trends the same way they interact with any other Trending Topic. They are able to click on a Promoted Trend to view all Tweets containing the trending #hashtag or trend terms. They are also able to Tweet about the Promoted Trend by including the terms in their Tweets. The only real difference is that a Promoted Trend is purchased by an advertiser and clearly marked as being promoted. Users who click on a Promoted Trend see Twitter search results for that topic, with a related Promoted Tweet from the advertiser at the top. Tweets on the search results page for Promoted Trends are unfiltered, open, and authentic. (Tweets which violate Twitter's spam and abuse policy are filtered out as usual). Promoted Trends 12
  12. 12.   Promoted Trends are visible to all users on Twitter.com while they are being promoted. Check your homepage and your Discover tab's Trending Topics list to see what one looks like! In addition to twitter.com, Promoted Trends are displayed on Twitter for iPhone, Twitter for Android, and Tweetdeck. Promoted Trends Contd. 13
  13. 13.     Model : You’ll only be charged when people follow your Promoted Account or re-tweet, reply, favorite or click on your Promoted Tweets.  You’ll never be charged for your organic activity on Twitter.  You can enter a credit card to start advertising right away. If you are a larger brand, you can work with a Twitter Ads specialist on your billing. Daily Budget: Set your daily budget for each campaign. Twitter will automatically stop showing your ads once your budget has been met, and you’ll never be charged more than what you want to spend. Bidding: Our pricing system is based on bidding—you set the maximum amount you’re willing to spend per follow or click. You may pay up to this amount but it will likely be less because you’ll never pay more than one cent above a competitive bid. Average bid varies from 20 cents to $5 per engagement. Getting Promoted: After promoting your account or Tweets for a few days, check back in to see what’s going on. Based on your performance, what other advertisers are doing and the allocation of your budget, you may want to adjust your bid. You can do this at any time. Pricing Model 14
  14. 14.     Twitter Analytics gives you the ability to track multiple components of your Twitter Ads activity, learn more about the behavior of your customers and adjust your campaign to drive better results. Watch your Promoted Tweets and Accounts perform in real time. You’ll see the fundamental metrics for your Promoted Tweets and Accounts campaigns, including impressions, re-tweets, clicks, replies and follows, as they happen. Larger brands can also see these metrics for their Promoted Trends. The timeline activity dashboard provides a comprehensive look at all of your activity on Twitter. See how every single Tweet performs with mentions, follows, reach and more. Then look for insights, trends and opportunities to optimize. Use the Followers dashboard to learn more about your audience. Keep track of the growth of your follower base and get valuable insights about their interests, geography and engagement.

  16. 16. Twitter For B2B 17
  17. 17.   Twitter’s trying to let B2B companies know that their audience is using Twitter. The stat that should interest B2B industries the most is that 11 percent of Twitter users who saw a tweet from a B2B tech brand went on to convert on the company’s website (by completing a sign-up form), compared to only 4 percent of average Internet users.
