Facebook platform industry news: Kenshoo, Expion and Nimble

kenshooKenshoo Social, a platform for Facebook advertising, has shared the results of a study it recently commissioned by Forrester Consulting called “The Key to Successful Social Advertising.” The survey of 105 U.S. advertisers spending more than $100,000 per year on social ads found that more than a third were not satisfied with their efforts. At the same time, it found many social advertisers were not using advanced optimization tactics like granular targeting or automatic bid management.

However, satisfied social advertisers were more likely to be paying to promote content — as opposed to creating branded apps and other organic efforts. Among satisfied advertisers, those who paid to promote their content were more satisfied by their campaigns’ ability to generate awareness, and those who ran other types of paid advertisements on social networks were more satisfied with their campaigns’ ability to drive purchases. Overall, the study concluded that although organic efforts are more popular, paid social advertising is more successful.

Kenshoo and Forrester will go over these findings in a webinar at the end of the month.
