A Quick Look at Twitter Ads

Even with the 140-character limitation, Twitter can still be an effective platform for advertisers. While not as massive as Facebook, Twitter has more than 300 million active users who send roughly 500 million tweets daily. Because of the level of engagement and potential for visibility offered by Twitter, there’s a lot of competition on this platform. Experts at a leading San Diego web design company discuss some appealing Twitter ad options that can make it easy for your target audience to view your ads.

Promoted Tweets

In case of promoted tweets, you have to pay Twitter to display your ads. Unlike other ad features, promoted tweets are shown to users who are not following your brand. Promoted tweets can be liked and re-tweeted, which can further expand your reach and ROI potential.

Promoted Accounts

With promoted accounts, you are presenting your ads to your preferred Twitter users. Advertising through promoted accounts on Twitter often leads to followers discovering new businesses. The promoted accounts are included in “who to follow” suggestions and followers’ timelines.

Promoted Trends

Promoted trends are the trending topics on Twitter that often generate the most social buzz. With promoted trends, you’ll use hashtags to promote a trend that’s appropriate for your brand. Users curious about a trend will see your promoted tweet at the top of their organic search results list for that specific topic.

Twitter Ad Campaigns

Twitter ad campaigns are categorized based on certain objectives. You’re welcome to use any of these campaigns as standalone efforts or as part of a multi-level campaign. Here are your specific options with respect to Twitter ad campaigns:

  • Tweet engagements to spark conversations
  • Follower campaigns where you pay per gained follower
  • Awareness campaigns to target a broader audience (you pay for impressions)
  • Video views campaigns
  • Clicks and conversions campaigns to encourage visits to your website
  • App installs or re-engagement campaigns
  • Lead generation campaigns (you pay per lead collected)
