  26. 26. Confessions of an ad man Agency set up • Premium ads continue to be purchased via digital teams • Self-serve is largely handled via APIs this is handled by digital or search. A few agencies have set up ‘social response’ teams whose sole responsibility is the purchase of social media ads using APIs Agency use cases for Premium vs Marketplace • The split is not always as straight forward as brand vs. DR but this offers a fairly good steer • Premium ads are primarily for engagement; E.G. drive people to watch a video, to an event, answer a question etc.. • Marketplace ads are primarily used for traffic
  27. 27. Confessions of an ad woman contd Fan acquisition • This is nearly always done via self serve (although there is a Premium offering) • Targeting is an option however this in itself does not affect cost • They use an auction model so price is according to demand Field Sales approach • The Facebook reps talk about the full suite of products. They give feedback and advice on both Premium and Marketplace offerings. • They see them as complimentary and generally suggest both to achieve an advertisers objective. Management of pages • Real variety in terms of who has ownership of the status updates. Sometimes the client does this directly, others are managed by PR or media specialist agencies.
