Social ad pricing follows the same format as other advertising channels, charging advertisers on a CPC or CPM basis. Social ads vary in price based on several factors, including the size of the target audience, demographic, the ad format, and the social media network, to name a few. The average CPC and CPM of Facebooks ads are $0.27 and $4.03 respectively.
This recommendation all comes down to user intent. The Search Network and the Display Network approach users in two completely different mindsets. When users visit Google.com (or some of the search partners, like Ask.com), they are actively looking for an answer or a service. Typing keywords into a search engine is a clear indication of user intent.
Despite what you may think of the site, according to Alexa, Yahoo! is the sixth most visited website in the world. Advertisers can use the engine’s advertising network to reach over 1 billion active monthly users and target them based on geography, age and a number of other demographic factors. Their search ads have been popular for years, but Yahoo! also offers native and video ads across both web and mobile devices.
With the Display Network, we are creating a disruptive experience. When users are on websites part of Google’s Display Network, such as ESPN or The New York Times, they are on those websites to get scores or read the news. They are not on those sites to see your advertisements. So when you are creating your new Search Network campaigns, do not be fooled by the default settings Google puts in front of you.

Earlier this year, we worked with a client to provided weight loss solutions. Originally, they were running the ad below which features a generic stock photo. Not only is the image easily overlooked, it hardly screams “it’s time to lose weight”. In fact, until you read the text blurb, it’s unclear that the ad has anything to do with weight-loss services.
Continued Growth of Programmatic and RTB Advertising — While advertisers have already largely adopted programmatic advertising, eMarketer estimates that programmatic spending will equate to 55% of total display ad spending. A major driver of this increase is the fast growing adoption of real-time bidding (RTB). As publishers and advertisers alike are reaping the benefits of RTB, a higher percentage of ad budgets are being shifted to the process. Accordingly, research from Business Insider estimates that spending on RTB advertising will top $26 billion by 2020.
Remember the show a few years back, “The Weakest Link”? Your organization is only as strong as your weakest members. There will always be the rock stars, the strong producers who rise to great heights, but if you can address the weaknesses of each teammate, you give them the best opportunity to shine - instead of having a bunch of “warm bodies” on your team, the entire team will be educated, empowered, and engaged - for their profit, and yours!
When you consider how expensive it is now-a-days for: mailers, fliers, buying leads, brochures, pay-per-click ads, face to face meeting, home parties, meeting room rentals, giving out free samples, newspaper/magazines ads, radio spots, TV, etc etc, — you'd easily pay $5000 or more anywhere else in your advertising costs to recruit, — with zero guarantees.
Display ads often yield abysmal click-through rates and even lower conversion rates. What accounts for their disappointing performance? It’s a matter of inbound vs. outbound marketing: Unlike search ads, display ads are not served to searchers who are actively looking for something. Instead, we tack image ads onto social feeds or informational sites with the hopes that they’ll distract users from their current activity and entice them to click through to our website. As if disrupting the user from their intended activity isn’t enough of a challenge, we’re also competing with other image ads, making for a pretty chaotic space.

Now more than ever, consumers are interacting with an ever-expanding set of media on any number of devices. According to Nielsen’s 2014 report on The Digital Consumer, Americans own four digital devices on average and spend an average of 60 hours a week consuming content on them. On top of this, desktop usage has continued to grow, with ComScore reporting and increase of 37% in 2014. As consumers’ media consumption habits become increasingly more liquid: flowing from device to device, from short- to longform video, and from social media to news articles, it is becoming more and more difficult to track down where audiences are at any given time. Whether they are browsing the web on desktops, watching the new episode of The Walking Dead on tablets, or checking Instagram on their phones, it is important for advertisers to have their campaigns reach their audiences anytime and anywhere.

Display advertisements run across any website that wishes to monetize its content by selling ad space on their page. Ads can appear in several places on a website, and vary depending on the layout of each particular page. Common locations include on the top of the page, to the right of content, and on the bottom of the page. Display ads may also overlay a site’s content such as articles or videos.
As we’ve discussed, there are many ways to home in on your target audience within the vast sea of display; due to the massive size and diverse audience of the network it is necessary and critical to target appropriately. With so many options to choose from, some advertisers decide to layer methods on top of each other – for example placements, keywords, topics, interests, etc. – believing this will reduce unqualified impressions and clicks.
Personalized PPC — With more data than ever on searchers’ personas, paid search advertising will continue to become more data driven. In particular, remarketing will continue to increase, allowing marketers to “follow” their audience around the web based on a consumer’s prior engagement with your brand. This people-based marketing is becoming ever more evident as conversion rates of these ads grow. The logic is simple, your audience is much more likely to click something when they have engaged with it already.
