Promoted Tweets: Components of an Effective Campaign

  1. 1. PROMOTED TWEETS: COMPONENTS OF A SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN MATT CHURCHILL JUNE 2014
  2. 2. PROMOTED TWEET CAMPAIGNS ARE AN EXCELLENT WAY OF REACHING NEW OR EXISTING AUDIENCES
  3. 3. CLIENTS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PLEASED BY THE END RESULTS
  4. 4. HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO GET GOING
  5. 5. OBJECTIVES
  6. 6. DECIDE ON YOUR DESIRED FINAL OUTCOME
  7. 7. • Drive traffic to a website • Generate content shares • Increase brand/product awareness
  8. 8. BUDGET
  9. 9. THE MAIN QUESTION THAT A CLIENT ASKS IS “HOW MUCH SHOULD I SPEND?”. THE RESPONSE TO THAT SHOULD BE “HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT TO SPEND?”.
  10. 10. • Start with £5k – it gets you a friendly Twitter Account Manager • Promoted Tweets work on a bidding system • You’ll be asked to bid somewhere in the £1 – £2 region, but it varies according to demand
  11. 11. CONTENT
  12. 12. IF YOUR CONTENT ISN’T FUNNY, INTERESTING, INSPIRING OR INFORMATIVE, IT’S GOING TO FAIL.
  13. 13. • Make sure your Promoted Tweet has a call to action • Keep your copy below 120 characters: it makes it more retweetable and gives you space for an image • Make sure your tweet has a visual to accompany it
  14. 14. CALL TO ACTION
  15. 15. THIS TIES IN TO THOSE OBJECTIVES YOU SET OUT AT THE START
  16. 16. • Do you want people to click through to see content on another site? Tell them “Visit us!” • Do you want them to share your content? Tell them “Retweet us!” • Do you want them to know more about your brand? Tell them “Follow us!”
  17. 17. CONTENT FREQUENCY
  18. 18. A PROMOTED TWEET IS MOST EFFECTIVE FOR 2-3 DAYS
  19. 19. • People tend to only click on Promoted Tweets once • Most activity on a tweet is in the first 24 hours of it being live • Create a number of tweets that have different copy or visuals
  20. 20. MEASUREMENT
  21. 21. YOU HAVE THREE ASSESSMENT METRICS
  22. 22. • Impressions – the number of times your Promoted Tweet has been served • Engagement Rate – the number of clicks, follows, retweets your Promoted tweet has had as a proportion of impressions • CPE – Cost per Engagement, or the price you’ve paid per click
  23. 23. YOU WANT IMPRESSIONS TO BE HIGH, YOUR ENGAGEMENT RATE TO BE HIGH AND YOUR CPE TO BE LOW
  24. 24. SERVING CONTENT
  25. 25. YOU CAN BE PRECISE AND TARGET THE EXACT PEOPLE YOU WANT TO ENGAGE WITH
  26. 26. • Interests • Key words they’re searching for • People who are like a particular handle • Someone’s location • TV shows they watch or even • Your own data
  27. 27. OPTIMISATION
  28. 28. WE LIVE AND BREATHE FOR THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE – WE KNOW THEM BETTER THAN ANYONE
  29. 29. • Twitter ads allow you to constantly fine tune your programme based on the keywords people are looking for, the main topics of the day and the amount of money you want to bid for each content serve • Know your community are always online between 6-8pm? Up your bid to reach them and then lower it overnight
