Social Advertising - Driving Brand Awareness and Boosting Campaign ROI
Paid social campaigns are gaining momentum among brands with advertising revenues expected to top $9.2 billion in 2016. Growing user bases and high engagement levels across the likes of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are well-positioned to connect brands with consumers and deliver measurable results. However, many marketers are still working to establish a strong footprint with social campaigns and tap into the social data that can drive strong advertising ROI. Learn best practices and optimization strategies for maximizing social advertising investments and understand how social fits into the overall paid media mix with search and display, as well as earned and owned social marketing. See how social can serve as the catalyst for new opportunities to reach customers, create engagement, broaden brand awareness, and ultimately generate business results.
