Best practices and cases by Facebook. With big thanks to Ashley Vinson, https://www.linkedin.com/in/ashleyvinson/ and the casefilm by Hunkemoller.

Here’s the quick summary:

– It’s important that we design ideas for mobile-first thinking

– That means not just taking our TVC and making it shorter/square/add subtitles – that isn’t mobile first, that is simply trying to “optimize”. (Or as I like to think about, trying to find another place to wear that damn bridesmaid dress you had to buy for your friend’s wedding ;))

– We want to create specifically for a mobile phone not only because you want your ad to fit the medium, but also because we see better results in our research – better brand recall & longer time watching (as examples).

– This deck breaks down some key things you want to think about when doing vertical – with the optimal way doing an integrated production where you get all your shots for all mediums on one shoot.

– In a perfect world, you’d then do an “agile campaign” where you run the mobile content first, get data, and then run the more expensive (TV) media using the results/insights you found out from running on Facebook/IG.

– When shooting mobile content, there are three ways to think about (see deck).

– In sum, your idea should be not an adjusted TV ad, it should be an idea designed for a mobile phone to be truly effective.

Facebook engagement 2018

Key findings from 43 million Facebook Business Page posts

  1. Top Pages are posting a lot more
  2. Overall Page engagement is declining
  3. Facebook engagement down for videos, images, and links
  4. Posting 5 times per day resulted in highest overall engagement
  5. Top Page categories experienced 49-70% overall drop in engagement

engagement : hashtagvisual or hashtagvideo? hashtagdata tells all… “Interestingly enough, we found that images (not video) regularly receive the most engagement. However, consistent with the data above, average engagement per image dropped from 9,370 per post in Q1 2017 to just 3,454 per post in Q2 2018. Respectively, average engagement per video fell from 5,486 to 2,867. Here’s a quick chart to show the differences between types of content.”

“But with organic reach nearly nonexistent on Facebook, why are pages posting more?

Jason Beckerman, CEO of social advertising platform Unified, said Facebook is “really a pay-to-play ecosystem now,” adding, “The days of seeing significant engagement from organic are pretty much over. Truthfully, all companies should be exploring paid social advertising—and they don’t need to have huge budgets, either. Depending on their goal, they can see huge return on investment with the right targeting, creative, audience targeting and strong campaign management capability.”

Facebook Groups

Good read on #facebook #groups, why these can be of value for your brand: “If your brand starts a Facebook group, think of yourself as a facilitator rather than a marketer or blogger. You’ll lose the group if you only promote your own work. Based on the groups I’ve been a part of, though, the group owners seem to hit a sweet spot when 70 percent of the posts come from directly the members.”
