True to (its own) form, Twitter has released not one but a couple of news updates at once: it is partnering with Epsilon to offer laser-focused ad targeting “Tailored Audiences,” and is also rolling out its redesigned web interface.
Highly Targeted Ads for High Engagement
Plugged in with Epsilon’s technology, Twitter is now able to offer the possibility to match CRM data to create highly-targeted Promoted Tweet campaigns. With SecureConnect – that’s the name of the technology – marketers can directly tap into their own audience and narrow it down to laser-focused segments, “Tailored Audiences,” based on data provided by Epsilon. These audience segments gather both the most engaged, and the most relevant to any given topic.
Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available.
Since good news seldom comes alone, especially at Twitter, the network is also rolling out the newest version of its web site. How? Via a tweet, of course.
The move is interesting as companies usually have a website and then strive to produce mobile interfaces. In this case, Twitter is doing the opposite: its iOS and Android sites are ahead of their website, which, as they say, will reflect those two properties.
As it prepares for a 2017 IPO that could be the largest in the social media space since Facebook went public in 2012, all eyes are on Snapchat.
What would we do without social media?
Facebook isn't just the world's largest social network. In the past two years, it has also become one of the world's most popular online destinations for consuming video content.
If your responsibilities have anything to do with marketing, advertising, PR or social media, you can’t afford to be camera-shy in this day and age.
