How to Get Started: Advertising on 6 Social Networks

Most Internet users feel entitled — to consume online content, tools and programs free of charge and free of advertisements. Often, any attempts to monetize Web pages ruffle the feathers of the modern Web-surfer, so many of them have turned to Web-based ad-blocking tools to combat the ads they so loathe.

This contempt for online ads is not really their fault. Many companies have weighed down their sites with horrible ad formats, and the intrusive nature of those ads make for a clunky and annoying user-experience. Below is an example of a website that serves an astounding 330 advertisements upon entrance—not even the most forgiving user would read through that many ads.

The U.S. Is Losing the Social Media War

Our adversaries are using our own technology against us—while we're not allowed to use it to defend ourselves

Cyber or information-environment security is often in the news, yet most of our focus has been on theft of intellectual property, denial of service attacks, and assaults on personal privacy. Far less attention has been paid to the ways social media have facilitated a level of propaganda and falsehoods, which is far more pernicious than anything previously experienced. The continuous assault on objective, truthful information threatens to undermine democratic institutions, including a free press.

Report: 65% of Adults Now Use Social Media (From 7% in 2005)

In a bit of news from the shouldn't-surprise-anyone department, a lot of people use social media. (That's kind of why it has that name—social media.)

What might come as more of a surprise is just how many people use social media and who, exactly, they are. To that, the Pew Research Center analyzed 27 different national surveys it has conducted between 2005 and 2015 (excluding 2007, for whatever reason). In doing so, the organization found that just around 65 percent or so of all adults use social media right now. And that number has jumped from a very, very meager seven percent back in 2005.

11 most memorable social media marketing successes of 2015

Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest are still the go-to social media channels for the majority of digital marketers, but in the past year or two, many brands turned to younger social networks to experiment with edgy, funny and, some say, more interesting campaigns. Companies such as GoPro, Nordstrom and Spotify made big impressions on Instagram, while some unlikely names — Hillary Clinton and Taco Bell, for example — gained followers on popular "disappearing video" service Snapchat.

We asked social media experts to weigh in on their favorite social marketing posts or campaigns from the past year. The following examples — including a skateboarding feline— show what's possible when brands use Instagram, Vine, Periscope, or Snapchat to creatively engage their audiences.

latino, revela:

  • características de mercado de empresas latinas digitales (por ejemplo, uso del idioma, población hispana por código postal, enfoque del mercado, sector industrial y región estadounidense),
  • servicios digitales que estas usan en todas las características del mercado (por ejemplo, servicios de medios sociales, registro de dominios, videos en línea, y comercio electrónico), y

Black Rapper Azealia Banks Shows How Trump’s Message Resonates With Black Voters

As polls show Donald Trump performing better than ever with black voters, progressive rapper Azealia Banks is expressing support for Trump’s popular immigration policy because of the positive impact it could have on black Americans.

“Do you think it’s bad that I sort of agree with [Trump’s] stance on immigration?” the rapper wrote on her Instagram account on September 7th.

Banks, a black rapper from Harlem, made headlines in March of this year by declaring her hatred for “this country” and “white Americans.”

Banks explained that her support for Trump’s immigration plan is based on the detrimental impact mass immigration has had on the black community. “Black Americans still have not been paid reparations for slavery,” she wrote. “It’s selfish, but America has been really good at convincing me that everyone else’s problems are more important than my own.”

We sat down with Bill Karz of the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (LATCB) to discuss the value of influencers, or fans whom have the power to affect the decision making process — bloggers, celebrities, politicians or even peers.

Should we pay for influence?
Some believe that influence should not be purchased, but rather earned. Without debating if an influencer should be paid for or not, our goal is to gain a better understanding of an individual piece of sponsored content’s value. In doing so, brands will be able to create return on investment (ROI) benchmarks associated with influencer marketing.

Google+ has long been the black sheep of the Google family, and the broader social media community for that matter. Even Google itself has acknowledged the network’s shortcomings, as former Googler Chris Messina candidly wrote how both he and Google had fudged up. Chris’s word choice was a bit more colorful. And then there was the departure of Google+ creator, Vic Gundotra, in April 2014 – arguably the most ominous sign for the social network’s future at the time. But while Google+ was undoubtedly mishandled early on, it does still possess promise for brands

Which Paid Social Advertising Platforms Are Most Effective?

Social media marketing is rapidly evolving. In the early days, it was a fashionable yet risky strategy reserved only for cutting-edge businesses willing to step out on a ledge for a communicative advantage over the competition. In the years following, as more platforms became available, and the number of users exploded, social marketing was a “must-have” peripheral strategy for every business in the country—and because it was free, everyone wanted to be a part of it. Now, we’re turning the corner to a new era of social marketing: the era of paid advertising.

Social media platforms recognize the sheer power of the information they have access to, as well as the brand recognition and prominence necessary to take advantage of it. While several platforms offer more diverse ways of paying for targeted advertising, the platforms you choose will have a significant impact on your eventual outcomes, but with so many options available, it’s difficult to know which is best for your company.

You might ask yourself, “isn’t organic social marketing just as effective?” Well, using social media in a more conventional way—that is, as a communication platform to share content and updates from your brand is still free, and it’s still effective to some extent. With enough effort, you can easily build a large audience, gain more web traffic, and ultimately get more conversions. However, social platforms are starting to downplay the prominence of organic posts in favor of promoting their advertising plans—for example, for pages with more than 1 million likes, average organic post reach only amounted to 2.27 percent in April 2015.

Wright's enthusiasm for all things Disney eventually drew the attention of the Walt Disney Co (DIS.N), which invited her to join a carefully vetted group of roughly 1,300 Disney Social Media Moms. The group of mothers - and a few fathers - are part of a Disney effort to incorporate the enthusiasm and influence of parents into its marketing efforts.

Five reasons why social advertising beats search advertising

While traditional search ads have driven traffic and sales for more than a decade, social ads are starting to drive more long-term value, especially for marketers of lifestyle products, where emotion and inspiration, rather than ratings and reviews, are the keys to getting consumers to purchase.

In lifestyle categories like fashion and home decor, search ads are a challenging medium. It's difficult to trigger an emotional response to a product in that restricted ad format and users don't see search ads until they've decided what they want to buy

Where Should B2B Spend on Social Advertising

Paid programmatic marketing on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn are hot topics right now for both B2B and B2C companies trying to take advantage of the massive boom in social media advertising. But B2B and B2C can be vastly different creatures in the ways they use social channels for advertising. 

Not only that, they are driven by different motives for their social ad campaigns. For consumer brands, widespread visibility and loyal viewership are key metrics that funnel all the way down to measurable conversions. However, in the B2B arena, the numbers are very different. The growth of just a couple of customers can mean millions in new revenue. This is why all those views, the shiny objects, and the vanity metrics may mean less for a B2B marketer.

When using social media becomes socially destructive

If you're like most of the world, you make time for following friends on social media. In fact, 71% of adults who go online use Facebook and 23% use Twitter, according to the Pew Research Center.
