Weekly Marketing Rundown - January 19th, 2024

Hi everyone,

In this week's edition of Kavanah Media's Weekly Marketing Rundown, we'll talk about auto-applied recommendations with Meta ads accounts, Google Ads' new conversational AI experience, and more. Let's dive in. 


Meta Now Allows Advertisers to View and Edit Auto-Applied Recommendation Settings

Meta is now allowing advertisers to view and edit auto-applied recommendations on their ad accounts. Navigate to 'Account Overview' in Business Manager. From there, you can choose to enable or disable recommendations related to audience, creative format, and more.

Google Ads Unveils New Conversational Ad Experience

Google's AI model "Gemini" is being rolled into the Google Ads interface globally. This new update will allow advertisers to chat with an AI to create ad campaigns in conversational language. Gemini will help advertisers craft both text and images with excellent ad strength - advertisers will see and approve any assets before a campaign goes live. This is a massive update that will hopefully accomplish two things - increase the speed of campaign creation for advertisers without a drop in quality and lower the barrier of entry for those new to the platform.

Meta's Advantage Detailed Targeting is Now Available for All Campaign Objectives

Meta has officially opened the option to use Advantage Detailed Targeting on all campaign types. Campaign types that can now use this feature are campaigns that are optimized for Impressions, Video views, Reach, Engagement, Ad Recall lift, Leads, Link clicks, or Landing page views.

As always, it's important to note that using this feature will result in you giving up some control over who sees your ads. If you're targeting conversions more on the bottom end of the funnel, this probably doesn't matter. On ads designed for the top of the funnel, however, you may want to continue using tighter audience controls.

Weekly Marketing Rundown - February 9th, 2024
Weekly Marketing Rundown - February 9th, 2024 Hi everyone, In this week's edition of Kavanah Media's Weekly Marketing Rundown, we'll talk about Meta ads updates, Pinterest's partnership with Google Ads, and more. Let's dive in.  Meta Ads Updates From the Week As usual, Meta made some updates to their ad platform this last week. Here are a few of the most notable: - 'Join group requests' and 'cost per join group request' are now available metrics for group membership ads - Events Manager may now show a notice about data restrictions in the settings of your data source. If you are seeing this, Meta may be restricting some of your custom parameters.  - Clarification on Engaged View attribution: "Engaged-view can be counted in ads measurement reporting when someone plays your video ads for a minimum of 10 seconds (or watches 97% of the video length if it’s less than 10 seconds) and converts within a 1-day window."

Early testing started just a few weeks ago, and Pinterest is reporting positive results so far. Pinterest has close to 500 million monthly active users on the platform, with 80% of those users coming from outside the United States. There hasn't been an exact date stated for when this will go live to all advertisers, but it is expected to be very soon.  For more on this, click the link below: https://techcrunch.com/2024/02/09/pinterest-announces-a-new-ad-deal-with-google-as-it-approaches-500m-maus/?guccounter=1 Instagram Adding Feature to Use Sections of Video as a Sticker Instagram has added another feature to stories, this time allowing users to cut out sections of video to use as a sticker. Use of this will be available to everyone in the regular stories creation section of the app. It's not a huge update, however, this could be a fun new creative tool to use in your organic strategy.  For more on this, click the link below: https://twitter.com/jonah_manzano/status/1755925466551357476?s=46 Meta is Changing the Name 'Meta Business Account' to 'Business Portfolio' Meta business accounts will soon be referred to as business portfolios across all accounts. This update changes nothing in terms of functionality, verification, etc, it is simply a change in terminology.  For more on this, click the link below: https://twitter.com/ahmedghanem/status/1755896158658891864 Thanks for reading this edition of Kavanah Media's Weekly Marketing Rundown!

Weekly Marketing Rundown - February 2nd, 2024
Weekly Marketing Rundown - February 2nd, 2024 Hi everyone, In this week's edition of Kavanah Media's Weekly Marketing Rundown, we'll talk about changes to Google responsive search ads, updates to conversion tracking for Reddit ads, and more. Let's dive in.  Google Announces Updates to Responsive Search Ads Google announced a few updates on Thursday to responsive search ads.  - After positive results in early testing, Google will roll out an update that allows Google Ads to move your second headline to the first description slot if it is predicted to improve performance. Pinning assets will prevent this from happening.  - You can now have 3 headlines and 2 descriptions set at the campaign level. These assets can be scheduled or pinned to specific positions.  - When opted into account-level automated assets, dynamic assets can be shown alongside or in place of manually created assets when it's predicted to improve performance.  For more on this, click the link below: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/ginnymarvin_drive-more-performance-from-ai-powered-search-activity-7158851996626681856-JQA_/ Reddit Announces Tealium as 1st Conversions API Partner With its IPO coming soon, Reddit has partnered with Tealium to improve its analytics capabilities. Reddit has been working hard to increase its ad offerings to advertisers over the past few years. This combination of Tealium's data management capabilities with the conversions API should improve advertisers' abilities to track effectively while remaining in compliance with data laws around the world.  For more on this, click the link below: https://www.socialmediatoday.com/news/reddit-announces-first-conversions-api-partner/706247/ Google is showing TikTok Videos in Featured Snippets TikTok videos have recently been spotted in two new high-profile areas - Google's search featured snippets and search generative engine (SGE) previews. If this becomes more common, it would mean an increased importance on TikTok videos in terms of an organic marketing strategy across other platforms. Though new platforms/sites like TikTok are becoming important SEO tools, the fundamentals of creating solid, SEO-optimized content are the same. Create high-quality content that answers your audience's questions.  For more on this, click on the link below: https://searchengineland.com/google-showing-tiktok-videos-in-sge-featured-snippets-437074 Study: American Social Media Use (Pew Research) Pew Research released a report this week detailing the social media use of the American population.
