The Internet Advertising Bureau have announced that Twitter is in the process of finalising their brand partners before launching this new service. First launched in the US in April last year, brands will now have the opportunity to pay for promoted tweets, trends and accounts, which will be displayed on UK pages.
It’s a big day for social buttons. Up first is Twitter, who have just announced that they will now be offering a follow button for third part sites. Secondly, the much vaunted Google +1 looks set to launch in the United States, bringing about, what we can only assume to be a big change to its SERPs and potentially algorithm.
So what’s the advantage of having a follow button for your website? Well, in the past you could happily point people towards your profile page, where they could make an informed decision on whether to follow you or not. Of course you can still do this, just as you can encourage these visitors to tweet your blog posts or product pages. However, now they can just follow you instantly, eliminating one of the processes that stand in the way of your Twitter profile gaining a new follower.
Integrating Tweets into your display advertising is an excellent way to run promotions that change regularly. You can Tweet your message instead of creating a new creative.
As the social media platform continues to evolve we are seeing further integration between ‘social’ and other forms of online advertising. A great way to grow your Twitter follower base is to use the social templates in the Google AdWords Display Ad Builder.
