On this week’s episode of Marketing O’Clock, hosts Jess Budde, Mark Saltarelli, and Christine “Shep” Zirnheld tell you everything you need to know about the new LinkedIn ad type and all the announcements from Snap’s partner summit.
Watch the episode on YouTube or listen wherever you consume your podcasts.
New Ad Types from LinkedIn
LinkedIn announced that they will allow advertisers to Boost organic posts on their company profile, paying to increase the post’s reach to a set audience.
The platform will also launch Event Ads so brands can promote their virtual LinkedIn events. New event analytics will give brands more insight into who is attending their event and how they are engaging with event posts.
Brand Profiles Come to Snapchat
Snapchat announced public profiles for businesses on the platform. With these profiles, brands can host all of their Snapchat content in one place and access management and analytics tools through Business Manager.
Google Ads Introduces Monthly Spend Limits
Google Ads quietly updated their help center documentation to say that advertisers could set an account-level monthly spend limit that can be applied to all campaigns. Since recording the episode, the documentation has been changed again and removed any mention of monthly spend limits.
Hi @adsliaison! This week we covered the updated payments help doc & the new "monthly spend limit across all campaigns"
This morning it appears the update has been removed:https://t.co/Bdp1xgBLvk
