Marketing Updates With Motion Ave

News, news and more news on this edition of Marketing Updates with Motion Ave.!  Ads and new features were the most featured topics in this week’s marketing news. 

Want to know more? Read on! 

Protected Markets Now Have Their Own Ad Category

In the US, anti-discrimination laws prohibit targeted advertising on the basis of race, sex, and other categories for employment, housing, and various banking services- a restriction that can bump up against the highly-targeted nature of advertising on Facebook and similar platforms. To keep online advertising in compliance, Facebook has launched new marketing API requirements that assign a new Special Ad Category to advertisers and marketers who manage accounts identified as belonging to one of these protected industries. This update will limit targeting options in this category to prevent discriminatory ads from being launched on the platform.

If your account falls into this or other special categories, click here to learn more:

YouTube Keeps Your Makeup Tutorial From Getting You Sued Into Oblivion

In a new pro-creator move, YouTube has updated its content ID claims policies to protect its creators from excessively aggressive copyright protection. The change prevents copyright owners from using the manual claiming tool to seize ad revenue from YouTubers for small and unintentional “infringements,” defined as  “very short or unintentional uses of music.”

Instagram Wants YOU… In The Fight Against Fake News

Instagram has empowered standard user accounts to flag content they believe is false. Once reported, Instagram will evaluate the user’s feedback and the behavior of the account to verify if a post needs to be reviewed by third-party fact checkers. This could be a great way to crowdsource the overwhelming job of spotting false claims… or it could empower mob rule to censor unpopular views through mass reporting. Remember, kids, subjective truth isn’t the same as fact!

Fight the good fight here: https://www.engadget.com/2019/08/15/instagram-users-can-now-flag-false-content/

FB Movie Ads Will Include Ticket Sale And Reminders

In alliance with US and UK cinemas and ticketing platforms, Facebook launches two new features for movie ads – users can now receive notifications when a movie is released, look up local showtimes, and buy tickets.

No More Accelerated Delivery For Google Ads Search and Shopping Campaigns

Beginning September 17th, you’ll no longer be able to put a rush on search, shopping campaigns and shared budgets. Google has determined that accelerated delivery has no impact on the efficacy of such campaigns, which are generally not limited by budget. Campaigns launched before this date may be run with accelerated delivery until October 1st.

Beat the rush here: https://www.searchenginejournal.com/google-ads-is-switching-search-shopping-campaigns-to-standard-delivery/321763/#close

Are You Relevant on Facebook? Who Knows?

Facebook is eliminating its Relevance Score evaluation of ads in favor of three new metrics intended to offer more meaningful and granular measures of ad quality. Since Relevance Score directly impacted the cost of ads, and the rate at which Facebook would run them, this change is huge- and largely a good thing. It was never directly explained how Relevance Score was calculated, but it was largely a function of predicted ad performance. These new metrics evaluate your ad based on actual trials in three areas: quality, engagement rate, and conversion rate rankings. 

Be the best you can be here: https://www.wordstream.com/blog/ws/2019/03/13/facebook-sunsets-relevance-score

That’s all for a busy week in digital marketing! See you next Friday with more Marketing News With Motion Ave!

Marketing Updates With Motion Ave

Facebook dominates our news updates this week as the social media giant realizes in a panic that it doesn’t have your continuous and undivided attention. Find out about this crisis facing all of us in the world of digital marketing in this week’s issue of Marketing Updates with Motion Ave!

Facebook Afraid You Forgot It Exists, Owns Your Entire Ecosystem

Did you know Facebook is a social networking platform used around the world? Did you know that Instagram and WhatsApp are Facebook properties? Are you sure?

Just in case the question “who’s your daddy?” doesn’t prompt you to loudly exclaim “Facebook” wherever you happen to be, Facebook announces a momentous change to its platforms that will improve the quality of life for users everywhere: Instagram will now be renamed “Instagram From Facebook,” and WhatsApp will be renamed… wait for it… “WhatsApp From Facebook”.

Given Facebook’s rocky relationship with… humanity lately, we’re wondering if permanently wedding the fortunes of its subsidiaries to the brand luster of their parent is an awesome idea. What do you think?

Teach the controversy here: https://mashable.com/article/facebook-to-rename-instagram-whatsapp/ https://time.com/5643028/instagram-whatsapp-from-facebook/

Speaking Of Instagram From Facebook…

Just to remind creators that if they know what’s good for them, Instagram From Facebook is their most “reliable” and profitable option for them, and that it would be a shame if anything happened to their ad campaigns, Facebook From Facebook launches a new feature in its Creator Studio App: Instagram Scheduling. 

In all seriousness, this corrects a previous lack of functionality that was a real waste of time: finally, social managers can schedule posts and IGTV videos from official apps. Until now, this was only possible from a few apps, as Instagram’s API restriction limited other posting options. This opening of access is likely to cure a few headaches in marketing offices around the world.

Rejoice: https://www.socialmediatoday.com/news/facebook-adds-instagram-scheduling-to-creator-studio/560162/

Google Search Not Entertaining Enough? Now It Runs Sideways

The “local pack,” or local results box you get when you search for location-tagged objects, is being redesigned in an effort to be more… interesting? Attractive? Action-packed?

Now, your search results appear below one ad in a scrollable carousel- which fits only one and a half results on the initial page. If you want to see anything past the first result (and see all of the second one, so you know whether “Free Foot” is “Footlong Subs” or something really creepy), you’ll have to scroll.

This can be bad news for SEO, and a lot of businesses that have enjoyed reliably appearing on first-page results are going to have to adapt to regain visibility- if they can.

The announcement, as well as some worrying and advice here: https://searchengineland.com/google-tests-carousel-local-pack-with-ads-included-320225  http://blumenthals.com/blog/2019/08/02/why-brands-should-be-worried-about-the-local-scroll-pack/

Snapchat Instant Create Makes It Easy… Almost TOO Easy

Social platforms aren’t just competing for users, they’re also competing for advertisers- with each platform having unique requirements, marketers don’t have the time or budget to chase every single one. Snapchat just launched its Instant Create Tool, which reduces the work of producing mobile-friendly vertical ads to THREE steps: give a URL, provide or choose an image, and toss that puppy into a template. Entering creative assets will be optional as Instant Create will import images from your website. This vastly widens the field of potential advertisers who can competently create quality ads- which could be a big win for Snapchat.

Snapchat’s official announcement here: https://forbusiness.snapchat.com/blog/introducing-instant-create

And that’s all Facebook from Facebook and Friends bring us this week. Stay tuned for next week’s surprises and controversies from Marketing Updates With Motion Ave!

Marketing Updates With Motion Ave

August begins with some interesting developments! In this week’s edition of Marketing Updates with Motion Ave, Facebook, Google and Pinterest all bring quality of life improvements and some new features. 

Search Ads Return To Facebook

Search ads return to Facebook after years of absence. “Search” now appears as an ad placement option on Facebook Ads Manager, allowing you to target specific search terms on the results page of a search on Facebook, just like Google ads. While this seems like a basic and useful option, search behavior on Facebook just isn’t the same as Google; it will require analysis of typical search terms for marketers to make search-based ads advantageous.

Learn more about the return of search ads here: https://www.socialmediatoday.com/news/facebooks-expanded-its-search-ads-availability-to-more-businesses/559783/

Pinterest Launches Mobile Ad Tool

Yet another reason Pinterest is made for mobile- now on the creator’s side. Advertisers can edit and create ad campaigns with a mobile-optimized UI and all the essential options: consolidated targeting, budgets and targeting adjustment, ad pause, and so on. For marketers, now it’s more convenient than ever to always be at work!

Instant Games Becomes Less Instant

Instant Games has put up its feet in the Facebook Gaming tab, as part of recent updates to declutter Messenger so it can mainly be for, you know, messaging.

Streamline your existence here: https://www.engadget.com/2019/07/26/instant-games-facebook-gaming-tab/

Google Keyword Planner Gets Searchier

Finding the right keywords for your ad campaign can be difficult. This update gives a little smart search-enhanced help, suggesting the most relevant additional keywords to enhance your seed. In addition, website filtering and brand exclusion features will let you filter these suggestions to keep your keyword seed on topic and leave off proprietary terms.

Marketing Updates With Motion Ave

Interesting news from Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook this week! Don’t miss this issue of Marketing Updates with Motion Ave!

Facebook Mobile News Feed Goes on a Diet

Beginning in August, the aspect ratio of ads and posts displayed on mobile news feeds goes from 2:3 to 4:5 – reducing copy lines from 7 to 3 and shrinking images on posts and ads. Marketers will have to tighten their copy or push audiences to the “see more” prompt to move to bigger real estate.  

Read more about the change here: https://marketingland.com/heads-up-advertisers-facebook-is-shrinking-mobile-news-feed-ad-space-264063

Instagram Institutes Double Secret Probation

Instagram is hardening its conduct policy with a system of escalating interventions. Activities that violate user policy will accumulate warnings- get enough yellow flags in a short enough interval, and you’ll receive a notice that you’re about to be banned. Mess up again during this cooldown period, and you’re outta there. 

An additional update is a formal appeal process; if content was removed in error, Instagram will restore the post and remove the violation from the user’s record.

Maybe just don’t be awful.

Get the story here: https://www.socialmediatoday.com/news/instagram-adds-new-warnings-for-accounts-which-are-close-to-being-banned/559079/

Twitter Reminded That Computers Still Exist, Some People Using Them

Twitter has updated its desktop interface, including importing several of the more useful features from its mobile platform, including relocating the navigation bar to the left side and rolling mobile’s Explore tab into it. Switch profiles without closing your screen, enjoy new color and dark modes, and see all DMs- sent and conversations- in one place. Who needs one of those “smart-phones” now? 

Embrace the goodness: https://www.theverge.com/2019/7/15/20695120/twitter-desktop-redesign-dark-mode-mobile-features

Pinterest Now Diagnoses, Treats Mental Health

Pinterest will now interrupt your regularly-scheduled swiping if it detects that you’re less perky. Searches for terms like “stress quotes,” or “work anxiety” will lead not to charming Pins of ramshackle country homes in Nebraska overlaid with soothing platitudes or to pouting cats in rugby shirts, but to “wellness activities” provided by Brainstorm, the Stanford Lab for Mental Health Innovation, Vibrant Emotional Health and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, such as deep-breathing and self-compassion exercises. Features like links to affordable mental health care or therapy chatbots are scheduled for a later release (date unspecified)- and of course, search results that lead to “wellness exercises” absolutely won’t be revealed to a current or future employer, spouse, or private investigator.

Learn more about this innovative and inspiring initiative here: https://techcrunch.com/2019/07/22/pinterest-wellness/

Finally, the social media giants care deeply for our well-being! See you next week for another issue of Marketing Updates with Motion Ave.!

Marketing Updates With Motion Ave

Welcome back to Marketing Updates with Motion Ave! It’s time for more juicy news from the marketing world- this time Google, Youtube, Facebook, Pinterest and Linkedin have all given us something to talk about! 

Shoelace: It’s Like Google+, But Less!

Google creeps back onto the social network battlefield with Shoelace, a new platform that allows people to organize events and activities that users can attend. If you’re thinking “Just like Sched or Doodle (which connects through Google), you’d be WRONG because… what’s that over there? To be fair, there are some social features sprinkled in: add your interests and the app will recommend nearby events, for example. For now, Shoelace is in closed beta in New York. We’ll see if Shoelace lasts long enough to go public or if it dies of disappointment

Brace Yourself: You Can Opt Out Of Facebook Targeted Ads

Did you eat a pickle sandwich under your bed with the lights out last night, and now every site is showing you ads for pickles, mayo, and antacid? Don’t answer. Do targeted ads squick yout out? If the answer is yes, you’ll be able to ask FB “how have you so thoroughly invaded my life” with the new option “why am I seeing this”? in all FB ads. Click on it, and you’ll see the specific online actions you took that Facebook told (sold) the advertising company- with the option of disabling all ads from this source! A new section, in Ad Settings will also show you all the different topics and products you’ve been targeted for, and by whom- with the ability to powerfully tweak which of these you want to allow advertisers to use. 

While it’ll be difficult to opt out of every single area of Facebook that uses your personal data to target you, probably its biggest value is in becoming better informed about HOW and WHY you get targeted, so you can opt out of the most egregious things.

Free yourself here: https://www.komando.com/happening-now/580478/opt-out-of-facebook-targeted-ads

YouTube Continues To Woo Content Creators With Better Monetization

Platforms are in a mad rush to befriend streamers that drive traffic; between Facebook and YouTube, it’s reached the level of a streetfight, with each platform throwing every incentive it can afford at content creators to keep them right where they are, driving traffic. Youtube launches a fundraising tool, Super Stickers, for their existing $400-a-minute profitable Super Chat, and Learning Playlist. There’s also new merch, premium emojis and badges, you name it.

The update also includes changes to the site’s copyright infringement tools. Creators will be able to easily remove parts of their videos that are associated with copyright claims- without simply getting the whole thing blocked.

Commercial Video Gets A Big Break on Insta

Videos are blowing up on Instagram- searches for videos on trending topics have increased thousands of times over in just the past year! Now, Pinterest has launched a suite of new video tools for businesses, allowing them to upload videos and see them all in one tab, get traffic insights, and schedule content. For now, these tools are only available for business accounts.

Learn more about this video feature here: https://www.searchenginejournal.com/pinterest-rolls-out-a-suite-of-new-video-tools/316087/

LinkedIn Launches 3 New Campaign Objectives

Since LinkedIn launched its new integration with Google Campaign Manager last year, the platform has been looking to constantly upgrade its ads features. This time it added 3 new ad objectives to its campaign manager: brand awareness, website conversions and job applicants. LinkedIn is taking itself seriously as a social marketing ecosystem just like Facebook, and continues to grow into the role.

Marketing Updates With Motion Ave

Get all the new updates on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in this new edition of Marketing Updates With Motion Ave.! This week, major social platforms across the Internet step up to greater ethical responsibilities and start polishing their public image:

Facebook Fights Snake Oil Ads

Facebook’s latest news feed algorithm update takes aim at phony health goods, such as weight loss, hair growth, and sexual potency products. No, FB doesn’t want you to be bald, fat, and lonely; these ads are typically from sources selling completely unregulated or outright fraudulent products, often imported with no direct oversight from food or drug agencies. They can be dangerous, even fatal, or just plain expensively useless- Facebook is clearly trying to clean up its image as a refuge for fakes.

Learn more about this fight against misleading ads here: https://bit.ly/2JlMyTM

Instagram AI Protects Your Lunch Money

Instagram is harnessing machine learning to compare outgoing messages to content previously reported by users as abusive. If the AI thinks your message might be bullying, you’ll receive a prompt, “are you sure you want to send this?” This feature intends to reduce abusive behavior by requiring users to pause and check their intentions; since most aggressive behavior online is the result of impulsive outbursts, this might be a subtle but effective weapon against cyberbullying.

Facebook Realizes You Can Make Money On It

Facebook hopes to woo content creators from YouTube by offering new ways to quit your real job and spend 14 hours a day in your basement streaming Fortnite and DOTA. Now, in addition to premium subscription options to lock exclusive content behind a paywall, viewers can purchase “Stars,” the token economy that will be used to “tip” content streamers during live streams, which will become real money. 

Shocking news: beginning in 2020, Facebook will take a cut (or, if you like, “vig”) of the earnings from the fan subscription. Thank goodness they’re not neglecting themselves!

Twitter Joins The Hate Speech Fight

Twitter is expanding their code of conduct to penalize users who submit messages that dehumanize others on the basis of religion. Now more than ever language and its malicious use is the focus of social platforms!

Welcome back for more marketing updates with Motion Ave. Not even the short Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp outage can stop us from bringing you the best news of the week! 

New Chat Sticker Comes To Instagram

This new addition to the Instagram stickers will allow users to enter a group chat directly from one of your Stories. You’ll be in control of who is allowed in (or not)! There aren’t any immediate applications in marketing- but it’s a great choice for friends who want to start a group conversation on Insta because their moms and grandparents have taken over Facebook.

An ambitious marketer could use this facility in combination with the recent enhanced ad features to provide unparalleled, if labor-intensive, customer service. What do you think?

Twitter Realizes Search Results Should Contain Information

Thanks to a recent update, Twitter user searches will now get you more than a name. Now when you search for a user on the platform, you’ll get more information like recent tweets, mutual follows, and trends to decide if it’s worth following that profile.

Opening A New App Is Hard: Snapchat Brings Us Another Game, “Bitmoji Tennis”

Snapchat’s new multiplayer gaming platform is taking off- needless to say, the platform is thrilled that another user impulse can be indulged without clicking away. They’ve now added “Bitmoji Tennis,” where Snapchat users can compete with friends and randos, with game modes including solo training, one-on-one match challenges, and group challenges. Profanity-laced temper tantrums and public scandals will be available later as premium content.

Prepare yourself for the first match here: https://9to5mac.com/2019/07/01/snapchat-bitmoji-tennis/

WhatsApp Grudgingly Acknowledges Facebook Exists, Instantly Also Becomes A Social Network

The popular Facebook property WhatsApp is giving its parent company a little PDA: a new feature finally lets you share your Whatsapp status on Facebook. Also, the long-awaited fingerprint authentication could finally become a reality on the platform, along with the QR mode that will allow you to easily add contacts by scanning a simple code. These new features make us wonder: is Whatsapp still just a messaging platform, or is it essentially a social media annex of Facebook where more chatting goes on?

Marketing Updates With Motion Ave

We’re back with more marketing news! This week Google, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube gave us plenty to talk about!

Google Tries Social Media Again With Google My Business

Remember Google+? Yeah, most people don’t. The “Facebook for people too old for Facebook” went away last year due to massive security gaps and a general lack of interest, but that doesn’t mean Google still doesn’t want the remaining sliver of that sweet social media marketing pie. New features on Google My Business won’t create a new social platform, but they’ll bring the ability for brands to take social-like actions, such as integrating discounts, stickers, and more customizable images into their Google search presence.

Get the whole story here: https://www.socialmediatoday.com/news/google-adds-more-social-like-options-to-google-my-business-listings/557314/

It’s Still Instagram, but More And Faster And Alive

In the days of the dinosaurs, before CGI, most cartoons were made with “stop motion”- showing a lot of pictures, each slightly different, very quickly to make things appear to move and change. Instagram is bringing the quirky fun of stop-motion without the tedium to Stories: stop motion story mode. Take several shots of an object, and Instagram will bring them together to create a stop motion video, ready to be used in your account.

Check out this upcoming feature here: https://beebom.com/instagram-stop-motion-story/

Never, Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever Read The Comments. Hey, Stop!

It’s hard to deny that YouTube has created a bustling marketplace of ideas in the comments section of its videos, where millions of users from around the world come together to share positive, healthy, mutually supportive messages of love and well-composed insights. 

To help YouTubers remain focused on the extremely important content of their videos and not be distracted by the verbal delights of the comment page, the platform is migrating comments to behind a button, that you’ll have to click to open the scroll. Now you’ll have a few more precious seconds to think about whether you need to share your carefully-worded viewpoints on making 6-figure salaries working from home, just like your cousin.

Read about the first blow struck for world peace here: https://techcrunch.com/2019/06/21/youtube-confirms-a-test-where-the-comments-are-hidden-by-default/

We Found Another Use For Google Cardboard: Looking At 3D

3D technology comes to Google Ads with its new ad display format, “Swirl”. Marketers can now integrate 3D assets into interactive ads, allowing for more immersive online product experiences than ever, and more people walking down the street waving their hands in the air for no apparent reason.

The future is here: https://www.searchenginejournal.com/google-introduces-interactive-ads-with-3d-objects/313029/#close

C’mon Guys, Twitter Lists Is Awesome, Just Give It A Chance 

Lists are a great way to curate your feed and have an overall more organized and intentional Twitter experience, so it’s no surprise that very few people know about or use it. To bring customizable timelines to the forefront, Twitter’s new positioning of Lists would make it possible from a single swipe, instead of buried behind multiple taps. We know how tiring that can be.

News, news and more news today with marketing updates from Motion Ave! Find out the latest trends this week on Spotify, Amazon, and more!

Maybe They Won’t Go Premium Now

Spotify’s the biggest music streaming service in the world, and many of its members get their music free- a proven business model, but one that can benefit hugely from targeting, which hasn’t been Spotify’s style until now. Spotify now allows advertisers to target ads based on podcast listening patterns- but for now, just podcasts. Don’t worry, no one’s going to judge you for still listening to Kanye.

Want to know all the details? Click here: https://techcrunch.com/2019/06/17/spotify-advertisers-can-now-target-listeners-by-what-podcasts-they-stream/

Spark, We Hardly Knew Ye

Remember how exciting Amazon’s social network was, and how users flocked to the platform with photos of hand towel unboxing? Yeah, us either. “Spark” has gone forever, failing to overtake Instagram in shopping porn innovation. Amazon will have to accept that, for now, it can’t be all things in all areas of members’ online experience- yet.

Learn more about it here: https://www.socialmediatoday.com/news/amazon-shuts-down-its-spark-social-shopping-alternative/557053/

Buy This Too “Complete Your Look” With Pinterest

When you’re buying a $1,500 stereo, it’d be crazy not to get a hand-woven aboriginal art throw blanket to go with it, right? Pinterest finally gets it. This new option allows Pinterest to offer relevant products based on the image the user is viewing. For example, if you are looking for a room design pin, Pinterest will suggest images of objects that usually appear in this context, lamps, furniture and any other decorative element.

Facebook Invents Time Travel Updates Its Post Comments Ranking

Have you noticed that your post comments sometimes don’t appear in chronological order? Blame- or thank- Facebook’s new comment ranking algorithm. The platform is preparing an update to improve relevance by ranking comments based on their likelihood to “generate greater engagement.” We suspect this will lead to some pretty funny-looking “conversations” in the comment threads for a while.

Your Headline is Boring, 5 tips for creating great Headlines


your-headline-is-boring.jpg

Reading blog posts and news pieces, among lots of other things, is a huge part of our agency’s daily routine. This is not only because we have to stay informed on the latest trends on our (and our clients’) industry.

We also like to keep an eye on what our competitors are doing 😉

The thing is, with thousands of new written content coming out every day from all angles, it’s impossible to keep up with each one of them. After all, we have to work. Thus, when faced with them, the headline plays a big part on the decision of whether we want to read this post now, or at least, save it on Pocket to read it on our break.

And, here’s a little secret: all readers (even you!) go through this process every day.

Because of this, the chase for the magic formula to create epic headlines has become part of the content marketer’s everyday life. The truth is that there’s not a simple, one-size-fits-all recipe for the perfect headline that will work for every type of content you create. What worked for one post may be terrible for another.

In today’s post, you won’t find complicated math formulas or mysterious alchemy recipes from our ancestors. You may already have your own headline secret sauce going on.

Instead, we want to give you four key reminders that you have to keep in mind while editing your list of 30 potential headlines for your next post. Sometimes, in the midst of following formulas and ULTIMATE PROVEN RECIPES, you may lose sight of them, and your readers may penalize your post for it.

Ready? Let’s cook some headlines!
