Main Questions Asked
- What is going on with Facebook’s news feed algorithm?
- Fill us in on LinkedIn and the recent changes
- Talk a little about Instagram and SnapChat
Key Lessons Learned
- Facebook- When the average person goes on Facebook they could potentially be served with 1500 pieces of content so the organic news feed placement is a challenge for brands
- Facebook organic reach used to be 18-20% but is now 2-3% however, a good organic post could hit 15%
- Organic content has to have value that teaches, entertains or makes people think
- Before you post ask yourself ‘how does this add value to people lives’
- Facebook’s strategy is now ‘pay to play’ so its okay to put money behind your content
- You can take a status update or post and pay to get specifically targeted reach
- Asses if the people who liked your page 2 years ago are still your target customers
- Boost post – is not something that marketers use most often. Go into the back end of Facebook ads where you have control to target e.g mobile, news feed etc
- LinkedIn – Recently introduced lower tiered pay plan and cover photos
- It’s now a professional network rather than just for jobseekers
- Recommendations and endorsements are still key to a solid profile
- Native advertising now appears in the content e.g. within the newsfeed
- Instagram – Owned by Facebook but treated as its own entity
- Features includephotos or videos up to 15 seconds and share on your feed
- Users can like or comment however, you can’t re-share within the Instagram platform
- You can add an external app to re-share other users content
- Pictures are easier to digest to users than text
- SnapChat – Popular with teens and young adults
- Photos are sent but timed so they disappear within 3-10 seconds (however can be screenshot)
- Taco Bell and New Orleans Saints have both been effective users of this platform
