Social Media Advertising and Twitter Ads

Twitter and Twitter Ads

Twitter Ads. Social Media advertising. Las Vegas, Nevada.

Somebody once said, "Twitter is the only place where you can tweet and tweet and tweet, and the universe doesn't explode!"

Well, today you can not ONLY tweet on Twitter, but you can also advertise. And that is a different ball game.

Twitter Ads vs. Google Adwords

Twitter's advertising platform is very similar to Google Adwords but without the AdWords' complexity. It is worth mentioning that it is geared ONLY towards Twitter users. So, if you know that most of your audience likes to hang out on Twitter - then Twitter Ads is a perfect choice for you.

What Can You Do with Twitter Ads

With the Twitter Advertising Platform, you can do one or more of the following:

  • You can reach more people and increase the number of retweets and replies
  • Increase the number of visitors to your website

Tweeter Analytics

In addition, Twitter created an advertisers’ dashboard where you can view the detailed analytics of your organic tweets (Tweets that you Tweet yourself) and see your Tweet Ad campaign for the previous four weeks. Here, you can find:

  • The total number of impressions. (The number of times users saw your Tweet.)
  • The total number of engagements. (Total number of times the user has interacted with a Tweet. This includes all clicks anywhere on the Tweet (including hashtags, links, avatars, user name, Tweet expansion, retweets, replies, follows, and favorites).
  • Engagement Rate. (The number of engagements (clicks, retweets, replies, follows and favorites) divided by total number of impressions).

When this article was written, Twitter allowed an account owner to see this Analytic as long as you opened an Advertising account, even if you didn’t promote your Tweets.
