IS FACEBOOK STARTING TO FALTER?
Times are changing. They have been since social media became a thing. But they might be REALLY changing now. For years, Facebook has been synonymous with social media, often being the most favored and widely used social media service in the world. While they may have their hands in multiple other social media services, Facebook itself might soon suffer a loss in usage.

Piper Jaffray, an investment bank, released a survey last Tuesday (April 14) that showed exactly this. In the survey, individuals aged 13-17 were surveyed on their opinions of the most “important” social network.

14% of them cited Facebook as the most “important”.

Compared to other networks, this puts them in third behind Instagram (#1, 32%) and Twitter (#2, 24%). Compared to past surveys taken by the same firm regarding the same topic, preference for Facebook has fallen the sharpest (14%) since spring 2013.

While we are taking into account only one source on the topic, it still suggests that a big change has either already happened or could be happening very soon. In short, Instagram is climbing while Facebook is falling. While this can suggest many things, one thing keeps coming up in my mind.

Simplicity is key. Instagram is simple to use and simply displayed. Users can access it on their phones, while the content they see is limited to photos, a location, and comments. Nothing else. Facebook allows for much more. But that “much more” might be what is driving people away. It could be too much information or too many complications with using it. Like I have said time and time again: keep it simple. Keep your content simple, keep your promotions simple, keep your presence simple. No one uses social media with the intent of being bombarded with information. The more accessible and easy to understand your content is, the more users will gravitate towards your business.

YOUTUBE, THINGS TO CONSIDER

We all know what YouTube is. It doesn’t really need any explanation. Ask anyone from 7 to 107 years old and they will all tell you the same thing: watching YouTube videos is fun (people tend to grow out of their YouTube phase at 108). Not only is it fun, but it is incredibly convenient, easy to use, and it includes a ridiculously vast range of video types and topics.

But you already knew that.

What most people don’t know is how much “muscle” comes with YouTube marketing. And I am not talking about annoying paid advertisements you see before you watch a video. I am talking about raw, organic, unpaid marketing. While it might take a while to get the ball rolling with your audience, the following you build is much more likely to remain loyal and interact with you than those who find you through paid promotions. There are many reasons why consistent organic marketing is preferred among YouTube and its users, but it is their affiliation with Google that sets YouTube apart from other social media sites in terms of organic advertising.

YouTube was created in February 2005. One year and nine months later, Google bought it. Since then, YouTube has operated as a subsidiary of Google. Because of this, Google benefits from YouTube usage. And since YouTube consistently ranks among the top three most successful subsidiaries out of their 178 total, there is no reason that they would ever dream of letting YouTube go.

When people in the field of social media marketing think of Google, they think of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). The main goal behind SEO is to get a website, be it yours or a client’s, on the front page of the search results of any given search engine. This can be done in many different ways, but the way that applies here has to do with web traffic. Put simply, the more traffic your website gets, the more Google is going to want to put your website up on their front page when users search for relevant keywords.

Just like linking your Facebook posts back to your website adds to your social media presence, uploading YouTube videos adds to your search engine presence. Since Google benefits directly from YouTube searches and hits, they will put your video up when users search using similar keywords. If your video is keyworded to be relevant to what a particular user is looking for and it is linked back to your website, you can bet that that user will follow the link to your website and that your website will become that much more familiar to Google. Put this example in a real life, millions of searches scenario, and you have yourself an effective marketing campaign at no monetary cost to you.

PAYING FOR ADS: TUMBLR
While people don’t often associate Tumblr with business, the two actually have the potential to match up really well. Though it is not as popular as, say, Twitter or Google+ in terms of numbers, the statistics of Tumblr show strong potential for effective advertising. According to Digital Market Ramblings, Tumblr consists of 214.3 million blogs with an average of 120,000 daily signups. Pretty encouraging, right? On the other side, it might discourage some knowing that those users contribute 80 million posts per day. Some may see it as rough competition for exposure and a reason not to embark on a campaign with them. But the very fact that Tumblr is such a busy website is the reason why investing in advertising with them puts you ahead of everyone else.

Every Tumblr user has a “dashboard”, which is essentially a Tumblr news feed. All of the blogs that a user is following posts content, which is automatically shown on their followers’ dashboards. Visiting Tumblr’s business page, it becomes very clear that Tumblr knows what they are doing. They provide various ad products for their users, all charged on a Cost Per Engagement basis. The most popular among these are the “Sponsored Posts”, which look just like any regular blog post, only they are promoted to more users based on location, gender, interests, and other things.

Along with the basic “sponsored post” services, users have an array of options to choose from. In a previous article, I had discussed how advertising with Adwords on Google+ gives you the opportunity to have your ad shown anywhere on the internet, with a fee. On Tumblr, you have the opportunity to have your sponsored post showcased on Yahoo! as an advertisement.

Other services include the usual- analytics, marketing blogs, case studies, and the like, but the previously mentioned services are what I feel separates Tumblr from other social media sites in terms of advertising.

So, is it worth it? Considering the numerous success stories of both small businesses and large corporations who have marketed through Tumblr, I would say definitely. Unlike the approaches that I have seen in other social media sites, Tumblr offers numerous services and advantages that just can’t go unnoticed. Their marketing team seems to have a solid plan for any business that might use their services, which is apparent by their requirement that you and one of their brand strategists work together to outline a plan before deciding which action to take. In addition, the Cost Per Engagement payment structure is highly advantageous. Other sites such as Google+ use CPE as a primary payment structure, but any social media site that offers CPE payments automatically gain my interest and approval.

Lastly, the audience of Tumblr can only work to your advantage. Tumblr users, unlike Facebook or Instagram users, follow only the blogs that interest them personally. Friends or outside influences have little to do with who they follow or ignore. Given this, those who view your advertisements and your blog are exponentially more likely to engage with your business simply because they are genuinely and personally interested in what you have to offer. I could go on for much longer about the advantages of advertising on Tumblr, but I think it would be best if you found those for yourself.

Advertising on Google+ is essentially advertising with AdWords. I had written an article about a year ago on what Google AdWords is, but for the sake of convenience, I will outline it again with how it applies to Google+.

AdWords, on the “search engine” side of things, works to put a link to your webpage on the top of Google search results. You, the admin of your webpage, make ads using keywords or phrases that relate to your business. For example, “Downtown Sports Rentals” located in Smalltown, USA wants to advertise with AdWords. In order to use it correctly, they would give Google their most relevant keywords and phrases, such as “mountain bike”, “smalltown”, “rafting”, or “sports rentals”. Next, whenever someone searches for these phrases on Google, a link to DSR’s webpage will show up within the top three results of that search. The user clicks their link, visits their page, uses their services, and pays them money. This option works best for a startup page backed up with ample funding.

You may have noticed that your Google+ homepage does not have any sidebar ads on it. Usually, the advertisements look like regular posts made by a user or company. However, the cool thing about Google’s approach to social media advertising is that it does not lie strictly within Google+ itself. Your Google+ posts can go outside of the boundaries of Google+ and span across the internet. Let’s say, for example, that I am the social media coordinator for Alaska Airlines. I have just shared a post and an image on Google+ about our record low ticket prices, and I want to promote it. I can choose to display my post (ad) more frequently on Google+ users’ feeds, or I can go so far as to display my post as a sidebar advertisement on another website. For this example, putting it on a travel booking website might be best. Not only do I have that option, but I can choose to pay Google only when a visitor clicks on my ad. In addition, your ad will be tailored to work on a variety of screens- desktops, smartphones, and tablets. Pretty nice, right?

This is a very simplified explanation of what you can do with AdWords through Google+. Of course, in order to display your ad on another website then that website must accept it. This is usually done ahead of time with the acceptance of AdSense, a Google system that basically puts ads on a website and pays them a percentage per click on that ad. Rates vary, as does the return for running your ad. It is safe to say that your customer base will expand to some degree by using this method, but nothing is guaranteed. An effective ad campaign on Google+ is no different than any other ad campaign in that the content must be engaging and it is just as much (if not, more) your concern as it is Google’s. Google needs to make sure that you, along with the general internet population, are satisfied. The level of satisfaction is very much a reflection on how much time and effort you put into creating your ad and running it effectively. Do not expect to simply throw money at Google and have them do all of the work.

IS GOOGLE+ COMING TO AN END?

Google+ is done. But I don’t mean its “dead” or anything like that.

It was announced about a month ago that Google+ as we know it is being split into two separate services: Streams and photos. While the split may bring more confusion to users, it is very important as social media marketers to keep up with the change and to learn from it.
While many experts in the social media world have called this the beginning of the official end of Google+, it is important that we do not jump to conclusions just yet.

As of now, Google+ is still technically running. But it seems weird that one of the “top social media sites in the world” is suddenly failing. Why? To me, it all boils down to one key trait of Google+: strict usage guidelines.

Google+ was very insistent on many things. For example, there is no changing your username. It must always be your real, official name. There are ways around this, but who cares enough about that to make an entirely new Google account just to have a different username? In addition, there was only one method of sharing on their service. Users were only able to log in to their service’s desktop or mobile app. There was no option to share through a browser extension or social media management dashboard. Users could not share in a social manner to their social media service, though it was promoted as an all encompassing facebook-twitter-instagram.

While we have posted articles encouraging Google+ use in the past, this occurrence teaches us a lesson. Hopefully, you will have learned the same. Some experts have used the old adage, “don’t put all of your eggs in one basket”. Sure, this makes sense considering all of the marketers and users that solely used Google+. But I feel that Google+’s shortcomings can be applied to businesses using any social media service.

Google+ put restrictions on their users’ ability to customize or express themselves. It was a social media site that wasn’t very social at all. People use social media because of its convenience to communicate and express. Google+ promised that, but never really fulfilled that promise. What does your business look like on social media? Are your followers communicating with you? More importantly, are you replying? Are you giving them answers to their questions or thanking them for their kind words? I can tell you right now, nothing looks worse for a business than seeing a list of unanswered questions from their followers. It puts a separation between your business and your customers.

It seemed that most Google+ users didn’t really feel comfortable using their service. The restrictions and difficulty to use it all contributed to a declining number of users. My advice would be to apply this to your business’ presence on social media. Take the time (its not that much time at all) to make your followers feel comfortable. Appreciated. Listened to. Failure to do so would surely lead your followers to leave.

LINKEDIN

You wouldn’t send in an incomplete resume to an employer. You would never put a picture of that funny thing you did at that party on your business card. You wouldn’t dream of telling an employer that you are an inexperienced, nameless, faceless, ageless, ambitionless grey cutout of a person, right? Okay, maybe I am getting a bit too specific. But what I am trying to illustrate here is that while no one in their right mind would ever do these things when looking for a job, they often do these things with their LinkedIn profiles.

Some may think that nothing can replace face-to-face interviews. This may be true, but they often forget that more and more employers are in fact turning to social media in order to gather information about potential employees before the first interview. Times are changing, and keeping up to date on your LinkedIn profile is getting more and more crucial to your career’s success by the day.

It may seem obvious what you need to do in order to keep your profile up to date- fill in the blanks and update whatever professional things you have done. But there are two key things that make success via LinkedIn much more likely.

1. Attention to Keywords

Be precise with this. LinkedIn gives you the ability to include a summary on your profile. Don’t fill it up with “I am a graduate of [college] with a degree in [major]. I am proficient at SEO and social media marketing. Recently, I have been learning to code alongside starting my own snack foods business, Krakerz Deelux. Look me up at my website or give me a call at [number] if you are interested in working with me!”

NO. First off, the tone that comes with “I am” and “I have been” is very unprofessional. Second, potential employers do not care and do not have the time to read through your essay of information. Get to the point. “[Name], [school], [degree], [location]. SEO, social media marketing, HTML and Wordpress, entrepreneur, Youtuber, blogger, marketing consultant”, etc. Doing your summary this way not only makes it easier for employers to understand what you have to offer, but it also makes it easier for search engines to index your profile whenever someone searches for a blogger who can write HTML and lives in a nearby area.

2. Keep your content interesting

I know this can be hard, especially when the atmosphere is very professional and straightforward. I am not telling you to post about the latest construction project you did with “There I was, hammer in hand, looking at the towering wall above me that I had just completed. I remembered my childhood and contemplated my future…”. This is mostly about “click bait”. How do you make someone want to click the link read more about that project you did? Make the headline interesting. Don’t title the post with something like “Recent Project” or “Finished House”. What you decide to put in your headlines is up to you, but I personally would go with something like “Splinters and Smiles: Making a House a Home”. Give it something that shows that you are enthusiastic about your work. That you are proud of it. No one wants to work with someone that hates what they do.

I was planning on writing an article about paid advertising on Pinterest, but they don’t have an established advertising service quite yet. Rest assured, they are working on it. So, I thought I would discuss advertising on another social media site: LinkedIn. Given the fact that we haven’t discussed much about LinkedIn, I feel it is appropriate to outline what it is before discussing the benefits of paying for advertising with them.

LinkedIn is essentially an interactive online resume. Users create a profile for free with their real name and info. Unlike most social media sites, users are not prompted to give the usual “favorite movies”, “favorite bands”, etc. Instead, LinkedIn puts an emphasis on work history, marketable skills, current job(s), professional interests, school history, and the like. Users can also upload a profile photo, resume, or any other document that they feel is worth sharing in a professional setting. It’s Facebook for professionals.

Now, hopefully you are familiar enough with LinkedIn to know how to properly use it. If not, read some past articles and try using it yourself. It really is simple. I say this because reading about their advertising options might not make sense if you are not familiar with the site.

Anyway, lets get down to business. It should first be known that LinkedIn does not supply users with as much help with advertising as, say, Tumblr. It is a purely self-service advertising solution that puts you 100% in charge of your content, placements, and payments.

Their solution consists of three basic steps- create your ad, select your target audience, and set your budget and bid. The first is pretty self-explanatory. Decide what you want your headline to be, what your ad will say, what images (if any) will be put up, and where your url goes. The example given on LinkedIn’s advertising help page looks like this:

INSTAGRAM ADVERTISEMENT

Instagram, like Tumblr or Pinterest, is a very aesthetically-driven social network with over 300 million active users. Regular text posts or status updates usually aren’t very well received in communities like these. For those that aren’t familiar with Instagram, it is a social networking service whose main interactions between users consist of photo or short video sharing, with subsequent “likes” and comments. It can be accessed and used with a computer, but the main use of the service is through the smartphone app.

Before outlining the benefits of Instagram advertising, I should let you know right now that Facebook is Instagram’s parent company. So, if your Facebook followers are active with you there, your ad will likely turn up in their Instagram feed. In addition, if an Instagram user doesn’t like your content, they can delete it and that information will be sent to Instagram. Like Facebook, Instagram doesn’t want to flood their users’ feeds with irrelevant advertisements out of the concern of upsetting users and, eventually, losing them. Given this, making an effective Instagram advertisement is just as much your concern as it is theirs. Boring, false, or excessive content will not be tolerated among users or the company itself.

But that should be common knowledge. Don’t make a bad ad.

Advertising was made available on Instagram about a year ago. So far, it has yielded amazing results among business admins and users alike. Given the simplicity of Instagram, ads are very simple. Users scroll down and see one photo or video at a time on their phone. This means that users are very likely to pay just as much attention to your ad as they would to the selfies, coffee, and food that take up pretty much the rest of their feeds. No sidebars, no links. Just images.

On the “free” side of Instagram advertising, you have regular posts. Those who happen to follow your business on Instagram will see what you post free of charge. But how big of an impact are you going to make by showing the occasional photo to your limited number of followers? My guess is not much. By paying for an advertisement, you reach not only your followers, but also those who have simply shown interest in your general line of work on Instagram and Facebook.

Since advertisements must stay true to the community, Instagram provides various services in order for that to happen. The “inspiration gallery” is a very useful tool that, well, inspires you. It shows posts by successful advertisers and gives explanations as to why they have done so well. Not only does it provide inspiration through photos, but it also provides users with various inspirational and trending hashtags.

Looking at it as a whole, paying for advertisements on Instagram actually seems like a great idea. Not only have there been amazing benefits for businesses in the past, but it also seems like the company really cares about your advertising success.

Paying for Facebook Ad's

This is one part of a four-part series on various important aspects of paying for exposure on various social media platforms.

So, you’ve tried everything you can to get the word out about your business and no one except your Mom likes your page. Well, I have some news for you, you’re not alone. Facebook, like I have said numerous times before, is heavily crowded and extremely “noisy”. Your business is one out of billions. And with increasing regulations on advertisements being put into effect by Facebook, it is now harder than ever before to effectively get people to discover it. Many have said that organic (unpaid) advertising is a thing of the past. It might be. But that doesn’t mean that all advertising on Facebook is.

To some, paying for Facebook ads might seem desperate. Pointless. A waste of money. While it is a noisy atmosphere for the average user, the “paid” user has a slight advantage. To gather information about all of this, I tried creating an ad step by step through Facebook as a regular user without actually finalizing the process. The following is an account of my experience.

After searching for “facebook advertising” on Google, I clicked on the first link I saw. The link led me to a page about how Facebook advertising works. After reading through the four steps to effective advertising outlined on the page, I clicked “Create an Ad”. The link led me to a menu of different objectives for a tentative ad. The list includes such objectives as “boost your posts”, “promote your page”, or even “get people to claim your offer”. For the sake of simplicity, I chose “boost your posts”.

From here, you need to either choose a page that you are already an admin for. Hopefully before thinking about advertising you have already made a page for your business. After picking the page whose posts I will promote, I was prompted to either choose a past post by that page, or make a new one right there. I chose a past post.

After naming the campaign I have created, I got straight into the specifics of it all. First, I had to create an account with my country, currency, and time zone. Easy. While creating your ad, you get to specify who you want to target in your audience. This is much more involved than picking which friends to show your stuff to. Along with location options to choose, you can pick your desired audience’s age range, gender, languages, interests, and even behaviors. These aspects of your audience are very specific and entirely decided by the user, so telling you my audience specifics might not work for your particular campaign.

Next, and most importantly, the payments. Facebook provides you with an estimated daily reach level based on how much and how often you plan to pay. Obviously, the more you pay the more people will be reached. It is nice, though, to have something that outlines what you might be getting into before actually getting into it. Along with outlining how much you will pay, you also outline how long your ad(s) will run. Either you can run it right now until further notice, or set a specific start and end date for them.
Last, the text and links of the ad. This essentially means that you decide where your ad will show up on user’s feeds. Available choices include the traditional desktop feed placement, mobile phone feed placement, or right column placement. You can pick one of them. Or you can pick all of them. The more you pick, them more it costs.

All in all, paying for advertisements on Facebook is a good idea in my opinion. More and more restrictions continue to be implemented for advertisements on Facebook, leaving room for only those who are willing to pay. The biggest advantage to Facebook’s approach to advertising is their flexible payment options. Leaving room to choose how much to pay is incredibly beneficial to users and admins. It allows for users to see the impact that a small advertising investment makes on their business before deciding to increase it. It is not a bad idea to at least try it. If it fails, no problem. End the campaign and pay what you decided. If it works, keep it up! Put more into it, take different approaches, or put up different content. The potential for success is huge, given that Facebook is still the most popular social media network in the world.

“We started using The Site Vamps services in January of 2012 to help boost our online presence. Little did we know how much of a boost it would receive. Since The Site Vamp took over our web sites, we have had more business from the web sites than we had the entire eight years prior to The Site Vamps involvement.
We are extremely happy with her ability to communicate with us, her ability to facilitate our blogs, her knowledge of SEO and social media and the fact that she is easy to work with.
We highly recommend The Site Vamp for your web site and social media needs.”
