Brands Support Unpaid American Government Workers

We've officially entered the 28th day of the United States' government shutdown. Regardless of one's stance on the issues, it's humbling to see brands stepping up to support the estimated 800,000 government employees that have gone without pay for almost a month now. On January 16th, Kraft opened a pop-up grocery store in Washington DC called "Kraft Now Pay Later". The store will allow furloughed workers to take home a bag of Kraft products (such as their well-known boxed mac & cheese) free of...

Give Your LinkedIn Performance a Boost With Group Targeting

Over the last few years, I have continued to watch LinkedIn CPCs rise (especially in the US), which means that CPAs increase as well. For some advertisers, this pattern isn’t sustainable and I have seen B2B advertisers with a lot of potential hang up their LinkedIn hat in search of cheaper leads elsewhere. If you (or a client) is considering cutting back on LinkedIn advertising or throwing in the towel altogether, I have something you need to test before you do anything: Group targeting! Why ...

AdWords Express Officially Rolled Into Google Ads

  Over the years I’ve had a couple of opportunities to work with companies that had AdWords Express accounts. Often times they had set up AdWords Express themselves and then moved to regular Google Ads when they outgrew AdWords Express. While the accounts were connected, it always was a hassle to get to one from the other. I won’t spend a lot of time here, but I have never liked AdWords Express personally. It always seemed like a dumbed down version of the product designed to more easily get S...

Shoppers Can Take Action Through Upcycled Food

London bakery chain Gail’s has introduced “waste bread”—a loaf of sourdough bread made from any kind of unsold bread from the day before. The new product is one examples of many brands trying to take action and find new solutions for the growing food waste problem across the UK. With an estimated annual food waste bill of £20 billion, bread counts as one of the main culprits as Brits throw away 24 million slices every day. More retailers and brands have started to tackle this pro...

How to Leverage B2B Lookalike Audiences in the Stages of Your Sales Funnel

Looking back on 2018, one of the more effective audience targets we’ve been able to leverage in our campaigns is Lookalike audiences. If you’re unfamiliar with this targeting strategy, Lookalike audiences provide a way for you to submit a list of users to a platform and have them search for users on their platform who behave similarly; in other words, they “look like” the audience you provided. These can be based on the options available for targeting or other qualities advertisers are unable ...

Understanding Price in Lead Generation PPC: It’s Not About the Benjamins

No matter what type of business you run, the price of your offer is always a factor in the buyer’s decision. There are plenty of pricing theories for e-commerce sellers to lean into online, but when the first touchpoint doesn’t reflect the price, these theories can be a bit useless. With lead generation campaigns, most initial calls-to-action don’t have a monetary price. Although we’re not asking for direct purchase, that doesn’t mean that it’s free. There is still a price to be paid, but it’s...
