  • 40. About Those Clicks... Not the same as AdWords PPC! Advertisers pay for engagements, not clicks (i.e., visits to your website). What is an engagement? The number of times a user has interacted with a Promoted Tweet. This includes all clicks anywhere on the tweet including hashtags, links, avatar, username, or tweet expansion; retweets; replies; follows; or favorites. Cost Per Engagement (CPE) is determined via auction ● never pay $0.01 more than next-highest bid ● long-tail, exact-match keywords are cheaper Expect to pay for 2-10 engagements per visit to your website. Bid LOW. ● Most engagements will not result in a visit to your site. Examples: ○ a favorite followed by a click on your link = 2 engagements ○ a profile view then a click on your link = 2 engagements ○ expand a media card, follow, click a hashtag then click link = 4 engagements Placement (# of Impressions the ad gets) is determined by Ad Rank ● f {relevance, resonance, CPE bid}

What We Learned Twitter lead gen converted best when we marketed: ● “how to” guides ● “top 10 ways” to solve problems ● new product releases/features ● blog posts re. well-known issues with our competitor’s products Bidding: Start low, then slowly work up for volume. ● Start as low as $0.01 CPE; >$0.05 usually gets some engagement. ● Every time we lowered our bid, campaign volume went to zero for a couple of days, then resumed at lower volumes. Regularly prune-out low-engagement ads. ● Twitter prioritizes relevance and resonance Expect to pay for many engagements to drive 1 visit to your site. Bid LOW. ● Twitter bills for every click someone makes on your Tweet.
