How Can You Use TikTok for Advertising?

It’s the sound we interpret a clock to make. It’s also a lyric that is used in a lot of songs, especially country songs. It’s also a social media platform that has taken several countries by storm, and that is TikTok. TikTok is a video sharing app where users can create and share short videos typically featuring tutorials, music, dance, comedy, or other forms of creative expression. TikTok has gained immense popularity worldwide, particularly among younger demographics, and it allows users to interact by liking, commenting, and sharing each other’s videos.

In the ever-evolving landscape of digital marketing, TikTok has emerged as a powerhouse platform that cannot be ignored. Initially gaining popularity as a hub for creative and entertaining short-form videos, TikTok has rapidly transformed into a robust advertising platform, offering unique opportunities for brands to engage with a global audience in innovative ways. What sets TikTok apart from other social media platforms is its unique format, focusing on short-form video content that encourages creativity and authenticity.

TikTok offers advanced targeting options based on demographics, interests, and behavior, allowing brands to tailor their content to specific audience segments. This precision targeting helps maximize the effectiveness of marketing campaigns.

When it comes to the type of ads that you can run on TikTok, it is video ads and carousel ads (only in a display format). When users are viewing content and interacting with TikTok, they are watching short bits of information and then moving onto the next thing. For TikTok ads, it is best to have videos that fall in the :05-:15 time frame. Users are swiping up quickly to get to the next video, so you want to be able to capture their attention quickly. As with any kind of advertising, you could be reaching the exact perfect audience, but if your ad isn’t good, it’s not going to resonate. Here are some things to keep in mind when creating video ads for TikTok:

Caption formatting is crucial, especially on platforms like TikTok where presentation impacts credibility. (We can add captions if we are creating the ad manually – if we are pulling from an organic post, the business has to have already added captions.)
Captions should be formatted in easily readable blocks.
Inconsistencies or odd formatting can lead to a loss of trust among viewers.
Studies show that user engagement drops by 33% with poorly formatted captions. Properly formatted captions are not just about readability; they play a vital role in maintaining the professional integrity of your video content.
Adding movement to video clips is key to retaining viewer attention.
Implementing movement techniques in video editing ensures a more engaging and visually appealing ad experience.
Ensuring text and visuals are within safe zones is critical.
Important elements getting cropped can lead to loss of crucial information or miscommunication.
Ads respecting safe zones show a 30% higher comprehension and recall rate among viewers.

For carousel ads, TikTok says that carousel posts get 3x more comments, 2x more likes and 2.6x more shares on average than video posts. However, unlike Facebook, you can only have one click through URL and the text must be the same for all slides with 100 characters being the max. You also can not use emojis or hashtags in the creative. Some form of audio is also required on carousel ads, which we can add if requested, or you can supply a voice over.

For how to reach that target audience, TikTok allows for Category Targeting which is showing your ads to TikTok users based on information they have provided about themselves and their viewing and posting habits. Since TikTok is gathering information about its users, that is considered first party data and that data includes information about the person such as age, gender, and household income, but it also looks at interests, purchase intentions, video interactions (actions that show users’ engagement with organic video content such as video completion, like, comment, and share) and creator interactions (targeting users that follow specific types of creators or users who have viewed the profile pages of specific creators). Some examples of the targeting categories that are available are:


Gender: All, Male, Female
Age: All, 13-17, 18-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55+
Spending Power All or High spending power
Household Income: Top 5% of Zip codes,
Top 10% of zip codes, Top 10%-25% of zip codes,
Top 25%-50% of zip codes


Home Improvement
Food & Beverage
Financial Services

Purchase Intentions:

Life Services
Sports & Outdoors
E-Commerce (Non-app)
News & Entertainment
Apparel & Accessories

Video Interactions:

Sports & Outdoors
Culture & Education & Technology
Family & Relationships

Creator Interactions:

Home & Garden

There is also another way to target with TikTok and that is through Hashtag Targeting. This is a different concept that, right now, is only available through TikTok. Hashtag Targeting is a type of behavioral targeting where we show your ads to TikTok users who watched or interacted with TikTok videos with certain hashtags. It works by targeting those searching or posting on hashtags, which we can use for targeting for adults 18+. Hashtag targeting can be very broad or very select depending on the campaign goals. Ideally it should be a mix of popular and trending hashtags along with more niche hashtags related to your business type. Keep in mind that not all hashtags will be available to target because it’s up to TikTok’s discretion, or there may not be enough users on a hashtag.

The final targeting strategy for TikTok is Retargeting. This is where we follow people after they leave your website and show them your ad when they go onto TikTok. For example, if a potential customer goes to your website and leaves, our ad tracking technology tries to collect information about them and then follow them and show them ads for your business when they are on TikTok. It creates that top of mind awareness for the potential customer that was interested in your website at one point. Since 98% of website traffic doesn’t take action on their first visit, Retargeting allows for that frequency to act as a tap on the shoulder to remind the customer to come back and take that next step.

TikTok represents a dynamic and rapidly growing platform that offers unparalleled opportunities for businesses to connect with consumers in a creative and authentic manner. By embracing TikTok as part of their marketing strategy, brands can tap into its vast reach, engage with a highly active user base, and drive meaningful results. As the digital landscape continues to evolve, staying adaptable and leveraging emerging platforms like TikTok will be essential for businesses aiming to stay relevant and resonate with the next generation of consumers.

Why Monthly Reports Are Your Campaign’s Best Friend

Are you flying blind with your digital campaigns? No you are not! The magic lies within the monthly review! Let’s unravel the ultimate question of, “Is it working?” Well first before we determine that, we need to know what are we measuring to determine success and make that the focus of a campaign reporting review. Let’s break down some highlights of digital reporting.

Impressions: The Silent Spectators

Impressions, oh impressions! They’re like silent spectators at a mime show – they see it all but rarely make a peep. Yet, their sheer presence hints at the grandeur of your digital spectacle. But important to point out impressions are targeted to your specific audience you have selected, so rest assured, they are getting noticed. Another metric to look for on impressions and how many were served, is looking at where the impressions went to by tactic and how is the performance by those.  In the example below, impressions are being served to Behavioral Targeting, Keyword Targeting and Retargeting. It is not uncommon that Retargeting would have a high CTR(click thru rate) like you see below. All strategies in this example are performing well from a CTR standpoint and well above the national CTR average of .07%, however, one behavioral line item is a little lower than the others, so this may be something to think about for increasing performance. Things that could be revised are the creative for this behavioral line item or the target categories, and should more categories be added or removed.







Click-Through Rate (CTR): The Trailblazers

Ah, the CTR, the brave souls who dare to defy the odds and embark on the perilous journey from “scrolling oblivion” to “clicking glory.” They’re the trailblazers of the digital frontier, leading the charge towards engagement! A benchmark to measure is making sure the CTR is well above the national average of .07%. NOTE: Some products will not have any clicks or a high CTR like OTT or Online Audio, because it is streaming and clicks would be very low. Things to take away from clicks are making sure clicks remain consistent week over week or month over month. When we start to see click decline, this is usually an indication that creative may need to be updated to keep the messaging fresh and new.









Conversions: The Holy Grail

In the realm of digital marketing, conversions are like a leprechaun’s pot of gold, they beckon from the end of the rainbow, promising untold riches (or at least a decent ROI). To break it down in a simple explanation, conversions are what consumers do AFTER clicking on an ad or after being served an ad. This is where the true engagement measure comes from. What are good conversions?

Making a purchase or “add to cart” on your website
Clicking to a certain page of your website that you want to track (products/services page, info page, etc.)
Downloading info or discount offer from your website
Filling out a “contact us” form
Registering for a newsletter or offer
Watching a video
Creating an account
Clicking on a specific button on a page
Clicks on the Live Chat box to initiate a chat
Clicking on the menu/header pages on your website
Tracking on-site visits to your location


How Many Of Those People Who Clicked Will Convert Into Leads Or Sales?

To figure this out you need to know what the advertisers’ typical website conversion rate is.  In other words, of the people that typically come to their website how many of them convert (do what you want them to do)?  Take that percentage x the clicks.

For example:

If you are running 300,000 impressions, you should expect at least 210 people will click on the ad and come to your website (using the national average click through rate of .07%).  If you typically convert 5% of people from your website, that would be 210 x 5% which means 10 conversions should be expected.

How Do I Know What My Lead Conversion Rate Is?

This depends on what you consider a conversion.  If it is buying something on your website then you would take your total website traffic divided by completed sales to get your conversion rate.  If a conversion is someone filling out a contact us form, then you would take your total website traffic divided by the number of people who complete the form to get your conversion rate.

What’s A Good Lead Conversion Rate?

The average website landing page Lead Conversion Rate is 2.35%. Conversions are one of the top ways to determine campaign effectiveness if conversions are able to be measured. In addition to data your client provides like increased calls, foot traffic and sales.

View-Throughs: The Sneaky Spectators

View-Throughs are the sneaky spectators lurking in the shadows of digital campaigns. They may not click, but oh, do they watch or come back later when ready! Like ninjas in the night, they silently influence, waiting to strike when least expected.

View-Throughs essentially mean that a consumer was served an ad but doesn’t click on it, but it made such an impact that they came to a client’s website on their own, when they were ready. And many times, they also perform some type of conversion as well.  Talk about the power of advertising.























Other metrics to review on reporting depending on the product and client are:

Creative Performance– If running more than one set of creative you can compare which one is yielding more clicks. Also, what is the view rate of any videos that are running?


















Device Performance – If running on multiple devices like mobile, tablet and desktop, etc. what is the impression break out? If there is a large majority of impressions on mobile? If so, it may be time to revisit that user experience on your mobile phone to make sure that it is the desired journey and if improvements can be made to that overall web experience to yield conversions.














Google Analytics – This can be a great way to isolate all web traffic to learn about new user activity during certain advertising windows to see if there was a lift in traffic and overall web engagement.

























Google Business- This is a great way to learn ROI during certain advertising windows to see if there was a lift in engagement on their Google Business Listing. Consumers may not visit a website after being served an ad and instead “Google” the business and interact with their Business Listing. The report would identify any lifts in website visits from that Google listing, calls or driving directions if available for that client.



























Depending on your clients’ goals and objective, there may be other metrics to review.

Overall Goal Performance: The Moment of Truth

And finally, we arrive at the moment of truth – the grand finale, the pièce de résistance – overall goal performance. It’s where dreams meet reality, aspirations collide with achievements, and we ask ourselves the age-old question: “Is it working?”

There is not a one size fits all for reviewing reporting and campaign success. Understanding the clients’ goals and what to look for and reviewing every aspect of the journey will isolate areas of focus and will assist in uncovering how it is performing. From creative, to strategy, to clicks, conversions, web experience, sales data and more! And reviewing reports EVERY month, yes I said EVERY MONTH with your client is key to ensuring ROI, happy clients and campaign renewals.

What are Scrolling Banner Ads?

Eat. Sleep. Scroll. We all do it. Whether you are mindlessly scrolling social media, scrolling through an article you’re reading, or vigorously scrolling to get to the bottom of a page to just get the darn recipe (this one drives me nuts!), it has just become second nature to scroll. While we are all used to that kind of scrolling, Mobile Conquesting ads have recently had an enhancement and now offer a different kind of ad- scrolling banner ads.

These types of scrolling banner ads are only available for Mobile Conquesting, and they look similar to ads that you saw years ago since they have that scrolling feature to them. They also can have the dynamic distance listed within the scrolling ad to let the user know how far away they are at that moment of seeing the ad. That is pretty neat since most of the time when you’re served an ad, you’re not expecting it to be personalized to that level where it shows you how far away that location is. While we can dynamically add the distance, we can’t add the phone number or the address of the business, and these scrolling banner ads are only available in the 320×50 size.

These ads are a game changer for Mobile Conquesting. During our beta test, scrolling banner ads averaged a 1.66% click through rate, so they are certainly capturing the users attention! These are also a great option for a business that doesn’t have the resources available to them in order to create an ad because we actually create the ad! To create those, we will need a logo, the business name, the text (up to 160 characters), and if you want the dynamic distance to show, we will also need to know that. Scrolling banner ads can be added in with the other Mobile Conquesting ad sizes for no additional cost, or they can also run exclusively by themselves, but you are not able to do Cross Platform targeting with Mobile Conquesting when running only scrolling banner ads. We can’t place any pixels to the scrolling banner ads, which is needed for cross platform targeting, so if you need cross platform targeting with a scrolling banner campaign, we also recommend adding standard display ads to the mix.

Every marketing campaign is going to vary based on the target audience, the geographic targeting area, how well known the company is, their overall message and how that is being delivered, but ads that move tend to have higher engagement and conversions rates. For example, a video ad typically will outperform a GIF ad, and a GIF ad will typically outperform a static ad. By adding in the scrolling element to the traditional 320×50 ad size, it captures the attention of those that are scrolling through and seeing that ad. Businesses can leverage scrolling banners to deliver dynamic content such as promotions, product updates, or time-sensitive offers. The ability to regularly update the ad content also keeps the message fresh and relevant to the audience. With the increasing use of mobile devices, Americans are spending 5.4 hours a day using their mobile phone while checking their phones 58 times a day on average, and scrolling banner ads are specifically reaching those users while on their smartphones and tablets. Their unobtrusive design also ensures a positive user experience on those smaller screens.

From a marketing perspective, Mobile Conquesting is a no-brainer product since it’s reaching people solely on their phones and it has a variety of ways to reach them:

Behavioral Targeting– Targeting people who have shown specific behaviors online or are in a certain demographic, and by where they have been tracked with their phone recently such as a location, business, or specific brand name store.
Geo-Fencing– Targeting people in real time while at a competitor’s location, other businesses, or specific locations or events.
Geo-Retargeting– Continuing to target people after they leave the locations we are geo-fencing.
Geo-Retargeting Lookalike– Continuing to target people after they leave the locations we are geo-fencing and then target those people’s neighborhoods.
Weather Trigger– Targeting people in a specific geographic area when a certain type of weather event takes place or is forecasted to take place.
Address Targeting and Retargeting– Targeting people from a list of home addresses and serving ads to them when they are at that address, and then continuing to follow those people after they leave and show them the ads.

It is also one of the products that allows for On-Site Visit Tracking, so we can track people who see the ad and then go to your business within two weeks after seeing it, and show that on the monthly reports.

Even with all the different ways to reach people on their phones and tablets with Mobile Conquesting and the ability to track visits to locations, the one drawback to Mobile Conquesting is that it doesn’t always allow for a business to get their message across or tell a story because the ad sizes are smaller compared to something like a Facebook ad. Outside of the full screen ad size (320×480), the other sizes are smaller, so you want to make sure you keep your messages simple and incorporate a good call to action button. You also want to have one clear message to get across. In the below example, “Up to 80% off retail” is clear and concise and lets the user know what the ad is about so when they click on that, they are expecting to land somewhere talking more about that offer. You also want to include keywords in the text and choose high quality graphics or visuals. If you’ve got fuzzy or blurry graphics, then the ad isn’t going to catch people’s attention and it’s going to look cheap, and you’ll lose credibility because it doesn’t look authentic. All of that can be hard to do when you are working with a 320×50 or 300×250 sized ad. By adding in the scrolling banner ads, you now have a little more room to work with and can explain more about the product or service that you’re promoting, all while not having too much text on the ad.

In a crowded digital landscape, incorporating movement in ads can make you stand apart from your competitors and break through all the noise. Brands and businesses that embrace dynamic content are more likely to stand out and leave a lasting impression on consumers amidst the sea of static visuals.

While movement in digital ads offers these benefits, it’s essential for advertisers to strike a balance and ensure that the movement enhances the user experience rather than causing distraction or annoyance. By adding in the addition of scrolling banner ads, it allows for the creative to be more inviting and engaging, which can significantly contribute to the success of digital advertising campaigns.

Happy New Year and Happy Scrolling!

How does monthly SEO support my business?

In the ever-evolving digital melody, where websites compose the future’s ballad, the significance of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) can’t be overstated. It’s not a fleeting note but a continuous serenade that, when played consistently, orchestrates higher rankings, increased organic traffic, and sustained business growth. In this thorough guide, we’ll immerse ourselves in the multifaceted world of SEO and illuminate the myriad benefits that emerge from embracing a monthly SEO practice.


The SEO Overture: A Quick Reminder

SEO, the conductor of the digital orchestra, orchestrates the optimization of a website to elevate its visibility on search engines like Google. It involves an array of strategies and techniques aimed at fine-tuning a website’s relevance and authority, ultimately leading to higher rankings in search engine results pages (SERPs). The SEO stage is dynamic, influenced by algorithmic compositions, user behavior algorithms, and technological harmonies. To stay ahead in this digital sonnet, a continuous commitment to SEO practices is essential.


The Ongoing Benefits of Monthly SEO Practices

Sustained Visibility and Rankings:

The digital realm is a concert hall teeming with competitors vying for the spotlight. Monthly SEO practices ensure your website maintains its presence and rankings amidst the ever-changing composition. Regular optimization helps you dance with algorithmic updates and adapt to evolving user search melodies, preventing your site from fading into the background.


Fresh and Relevant Content:

Content is the soulful rhythm of SEO. Regularly updating and adding new content to your website signals to search engines that your site is an active participant in the symphony, deserving of attention. A blog section, akin to a dynamic movement, provides a platform for regularly publishing content that addresses user queries and establishes your authority in your industry. (hence why we update our blogs on a regular basis)


Improved User Experience:

User experience is the melodious note that resonates in SEO rankings. Regularly fine-tuning your website’s user interface, navigation, and overall experience creates a seamless composition. This not only pleases search engines but also ensures that visitors experience a harmonious journey on your site, leading to higher engagement and conversions.


Keyword Evolution and Adaptation:

Keywords are the lyrical poetry of SEO, and user search behavior evolves over time. Monthly SEO practices enable you to stay attuned to keyword trends, identifying new opportunities and adjusting your content to align with changing user intent. This ensures that your content remains a resonant melody, striking a chord with your target audience.


Strategic Link Building:

Backlinks, the harmonic echoes of SEO, are crucial for digital resonance. Monthly efforts in link building help you acquire high-quality, authoritative backlinks, enhancing your website’s credibility in the symphony of search engines. A strategic approach to link building forms a symphonic network, amplifying your online reputation.


Responsive Website Design:

With the crescendo of mobile device usage, having a responsive website is not just good practice; it’s a necessity for SEO harmony. Monthly SEO practices include ensuring that your website is an adaptable composition, providing a positive experience for users on various devices. This responsiveness is a key note in search engine algorithms.


Analytics and Performance Monitoring:

SEO is not a standalone melody. Regularly monitoring website analytics allows you to track the performance of your SEO composition. By analyzing metrics such as organic traffic, bounce rate, and conversion rates, you can identify the sweet spots in your symphony and fine-tune areas that need harmonious improvement.


The Monthly SEO Composition: Tips for Success

Content Calendar Crescendo:

Develop a content calendar that orchestrates the themes, keywords, and publication schedule for your content. This not only keeps your team in tune but also ensures a harmonious flow of fresh content that aligns with your SEO composition.


Keyword Research Rhapsody:

Embrace a monthly melody of keyword research. Identify new keyword harmonies, assess the performance of existing keywords, and adjust your content strategy accordingly. Tools like Google Keyword Planner and SEMrush can be instrumental in this symphony.


Link Building Harmonies:

Dedicate time each month to create symphonies through link building. Cultivate relationships with influencers and industry virtuosos, seek guest solo opportunities, and ensure that your backlink composition is a harmonious melody. Quality always trumps quantity in the symphony of link building.


Technical SEO Concerto:

Conduct regular technical SEO audits to identify and fix dissonant issues that might hinder your website’s performance. This includes optimizing site speed, fixing broken notes, and ensuring proper indexing of your pages by search engines.


Social Media Sonata:

Integrate your SEO symphony with your social media composition. Social signals, like likes, shares, and comments, can indirectly impact SEO resonance. Regularly share your content on social platforms, creating a harmonious resonance and driving traffic back to your website.


Algorithmic Adaptation:

Stay in tune with search engine algorithmic compositions. Search engines continuously refine their algorithms to deliver the most resonant results to users. By adapting your SEO composition to these updates, you ensure that your website remains in harmony with the latest ranking notes.


Competitor Analysis Symphony:

Keep an ear tuned to your competitors’ symphonies. Regularly analyze their SEO compositions, identify areas where you can add your unique notes, and seize opportunities to differentiate your brand in the digital harmony.


The Whole Picture

When we take a look at SEO campaigns, we take a look at everything mentioned above, along with everything else that’s both ON the website, as well as OFF the website:

In addition to SEO, we also recommend and implement Online Reputation Management.   Being able to monitor and improve all of the publicly held information about your business is vital.  Being able to monitor that through an online portal, solicit reviews (which helps SEO), review competition, and see all kinds of mentions of your business will allow you to see how your customers are viewing you.  Knowing this information allows you to adjust as you see fit.


Realizing the Symphony: A Case Study Crescendo

Case Study 1: B2B for HR/Employment


Our client was in need of gaining market share in the highly competitive recruiting industry, with their main competitor offering three Business to Customer products with price points between $20-$100.  Our client, competing in the same industry but in the Business to Business space, had products worth thousands of dollars.  Since both B2B and B2C companies were bidding on the same search terms to find their respective customers, AdWords was not a profitable endeavor.


We decided to focus solely on SEO to boost their listing organically.  It included optimizing all keywords, meta descriptions, meta tags, alt tags, inbound link building, as well as optimizing ranking keyword reporting across Google, Yahoo, and Bing.


Our starting point was 321 organic visits.  Within two months, the website traffic doubled to 696, and continued to triple the next month until hitting 10K visits less than a year later, then website topped at 14K monthly visits.  In addition to website traffic, the company’s revenues have increased enormously  since the implementation of SEO.


Case Study 2: Law Firm


The client wanted to focus on increasing the law firm’s search rankings, especially for people in need of a domestic violence or assault lawyer.  The law firm also received a bad review on Google that was not from a former client and therefore needed to be disputed and resolved.


Our SEO team focused on improving the clients ranking in the Google Local search algorithm, and in the larger organic algorithm.  The project began with an audit where we found several different parts of the site that were not optimized.  Title tags on articles were sub par, which we went in and fixed.  Also, looking beyond traditional SEO, our team found that the site design was increasing bounce rate and hurting conversions. Our team was able to make changes that improved the bounce rate and the SEO of the clients’ site.  In addition to the SEO work, reputation management is included in SEO campaigns, so we were able to alert the client to some negative reviews.  The client was then able to use the information to seek more positive reviews, which boosted overall reputation.



After the first month of the campaign organic and overall traffic gained 25% and 33% respectively, and 81% of traffic was new traffic.  The next month organic and overall traffic jumped to 57% and 56% respectively.  Year over year traffic went up 50%.  The client reported an average of 250 site views per day.  Other completed tasks include a listing on Yelp, changes to home page title tags, reducing the number of tags in the creation of blog posts, making points of conversion easier to locate on client’s site and updating broken Google Plus and Facebook links.

In the grand symphony of digital marketing, SEO plays a pivotal role, and the benefits of continuing SEO practices on a monthly basis are undeniable. It’s not just about reaching the top of the search results; it’s about staying there, adapting to change, and consistently providing a harmonious melody to your audience. As the digital landscape evolves, the symphony created by monthly SEO practices will resonate, ensuring that your brand remains not just visible but influential in the ever-expanding online realm. So, tune your website to the SEO symphony, and let the ongoing benefits unfold as your online presence crescendos to new heights.

Surfing the Waves of Change: Chrome’s Next Move in Phasing Out Third-Party Cookies 🌐🍪

Grab your virtual surfboards because we’re about to ride the waves of cookie-tracking technology. Chrome, our trusty browser companion, is gearing up for the next big move in its quest for online privacy. What’s the buzz, you ask? Well, it’s all about saying farewell to those sneaky third-party cookies that have been trailing us across the web.

On January 4, Google began testing Tracking Protection, a new feature that limits cross-site tracking by restricting website access to third-party cookies by default. This affects 1% of Chrome users globally, and is a part of the Privacy Sandbox initiative to phase out third-party cookies for everyone in the second half of 2024, but that is subject to addressing any remaining competition concerns from the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority.


The Scoop on Third-Party Cookies

Now, if you’re not quite sure what third-party cookies are, think of them as the digital spies that follow you around the internet, collecting bits and pieces of your online journey. They’re the reason that pair of shoes you ogled at on one website seems to be haunting your dreams on every other site you visit. Creepy, right?


Bidding Adieu to Cookies with Chrome’s Privacy Sandbox

But fear not, cookies have a brand new package.  Chrome is here to the rescue with its Privacy Sandbox. Picture it as a secure haven where your personal data can kick back, relax, and enjoy a worry-free online existence. The Privacy Sandbox is Chrome’s way of reshaping the online landscape, creating a more private and secure internet experience for everyone. Great for us, but what about advertisers? Chrome’s Privacy Sandbox isn’t just about waving goodbye to third-party cookies; it’s also a game-changer for you. This innovative approach brings a breath of fresh air into the world of digital marketing, opening up new opportunities while respecting user privacy.


A Kaleidoscope of User-Centric Features

What’s in the Privacy Sandbox, you ask? Imagine a virtual kaleidoscope of user-centric features that enhance your browsing experience without compromising your privacy. From trusty APIs to innovative technologies, Chrome is unleashing a colorful array of tools to make your online adventures safer and more personalized.


Tracking Protection: Your Shield in the Online Battlefield

One of the key players in this grand scheme is Chrome’s Tracking Protection. It’s like a digital shield, deflecting unwanted tracking attempts and safeguarding your online identity. No more feeling like you’re being watched – Chrome’s got your back!


Transparency and Control: The Power to Choose

Chrome believes in giving you the power to control your online destiny. With increased transparency, you’ll have a clearer view of who’s tracking you and why. It’s all about putting the reins back in your hands, so you can choose what information you want to share and with whom. An eMarketer study found: More than three in five US digital shoppers (62%) believe digital ads are largely well targeted to their interests. Accurately targeted ads mean relevant ads, and relevant ads drive better response.  40% of US internet users said personal relevance motivated them to respond to ads.

What’s Next? Buckle Up for the Future of Browsing!

So, what does the future hold? Well, buckle up because we’re in for an exciting ride. Chrome’s commitment to privacy is paving the way for a new era of browsing, where your data remains yours and yours alone. Say goodbye to being haunted by retargeted ads and hello to a personalized web experience that respects your digital boundaries.

Here are some of the ways we, as an industry, have made significant progress since 2020 to combat cookie loss (to name a few):

The rise of first-party data: Direct collection of consented first-party data becomes invaluable in a post-third-party cookie world, as it provides direct knowledge of your users. Simple entry pages that gather an email address are becoming more commonplace, providing one much-needed starting point for targeting. Identity solutions, in turn, can connect a known digital profile across screens, helping to make targeting seamless without cookies.

Alternative identifiers: As cookies fade, alternative identifiers such as Unified ID 2.0 (UID2), RampID and others have been adopted. These identifiers are pseudonymous based on hashed or encrypted email addresses or phone numbers and are thus privacy-conscious while being interoperable across screens. We continue to see leaders on the buy and sell sides adopt these and similar solutions.

CTV/OTT: The scale continues to increase, and it is cookieless by design.  In the last three years, CTV has evolved tenfold.

Identity graphs: With the change in browser-based IDs and declining digital signals, the need for an identity graph is rising. You’re seeing more and more companies invest in graphs, with an emerging trend being the “graph-of-graph” approach. This combines a marketer or publisher’s rich first-party data with one or more licensed identity graphs, including both online and offline data.

In addition to these, in place of 3rd party cookies Google’s Privacy Sandbox initiatives focus on –

How to deliver ads to large groups of people without collecting identifying data from users’ browsers.
How to enable conversion measurements for advertisers without individual user tracking across the web.
How to detect and prevent fraud on ads, e.g. bots clicking on ads instead of real users.
How to let websites collect user data from browser API’s that maintain the anonymity of individual users.

One of those API’s includes Topics API, a “standardized taxonomy of interests” that limits the length of browsing history that’s considered when surfacing ads, and a more enhanced version that can take into account context.

Therefore, we have been replacing our segment tracking pixels which are an image tag that only works based on cookies, with a Universal Pixel which is based on a JavaScript code that can work with Interest Groups’ APIs, for our clients’ campaigns.  This means all of our Behavioral products won’t be impacted by Google’s cookie change.

In addition, the following products are not affected by Google 3rd party cookies:

Mobile Conquesting

Facebook & Instagram


Keyword Targeting

Custom Audience and Lookalike Targeting

Join the Privacy Party – Chrome Style!

In conclusion, Chrome is throwing a privacy party, and you’re invited! Embrace the changes, surf the waves of progress, and revel in a more private and secure online existence. Many think this is the end of digital, but no need to panic. It means more security and ideal targets are still reachable.

How Can You Advertise Through Amazon?

We all know it. The boxes, the bags, the trucks, the smile logo. I know I’m not only one that has ever seen an Amazon truck pull up to their house and think “well what the heck did I order now?!” What started out as an online store for textbooks has grown into an empire. You can now get (almost) literally anything delivered to your house within a few days, you can watch free movies and TV shows, listen to music and podcasts, get groceries, and even have a virtual call with a doctor all through Amazon.

Amazon has become such an everyday staple in most households which has made life a lot easier for consumers, but it has also tapped into a whole different market that can benefit businesses- the advertising market. Amazon has so many different touchpoints where it is consuming data about its users and subscribers, and those data points are then used to advertise to consumers in various ways. Just a few ways that Amazon is gathering data about its users is looking at what they are searching for, browsing, or buying directly on They are also looking at what users are watching on FreeVee or Prime Video, which are OTT streaming platforms owned by Amazon. is website that is owned by Amazon and it’s the world’s most popular searchable database for info on movies, TV, and celebrities with 83 million users. If you have a Fire Tablet, or an Alexa, or stream Amazon music, Amazon is also gathering data from all those various sources, and those are just a few examples of how Amazon gathers first-party data about its users, and notice how they are all owned by Amazon.

Back in 2022, about 3% of local advertisers were spending on Amazon, and then in January of 2023 there was a 22% increase in average spending on Amazon’s ad platform, while spending on Facebook declined 7% and Google dropped 19%. Amazon’s advertising platform consists of a lot of national advertisers, but it will eventually get to the point where they are maxed out and will start to take on more local advertisers. Now is the time to get ahead of the parade and stand out for competitors. For example, when watching the Super Bowl, it is filled with national advertisers, but there are some local advertisements sprinkled in there as well, and those stand out! People make comments like “I wonder how much they had to pay to get an ad during the Super Bowl”, and they remember that. Imagine seeing your local ad in the mix with a bunch of national brands through Amazon; that carries a lot of weight with consumers.

When it comes to who uses Amazon, millennials are the biggest users. They outpace Baby Boomers by a ratio of two to one for using Amazon as a shopping tool. I am a perfect example of this statistic. As a millennial, I use Amazon far more than I should (to the point where my 5-year-old sees an Amazon box on the front porch and says “Jeff came today!”). At my parents’ house, my mom (64) uses Amazon, but not nearly as much as I do, and my dad (78) doesn’t know anything about it, except that my mom uses it.

When you think of digital advertising, two of the biggest names that are thrown around are Facebook and Google, as they should be. Google’s share of the U.S. net digital ad revenue is expected to be 25% in 2024, Facebook is expected to be at 20%, and Amazon at 14%. When you are talking about billions of dollars, those are some large percentages. Also, Amazon started it’s DSP in 2012, while Google and Facebook started a version of their DSPs back in the early 2000s, so in a short amount of time, Amazon has been able to capture a decent sized piece of the advertising pie.

As I mentioned before, Amazon accumulates all this data about its users and for an advertiser, this is the advertising jackpot because you can use that data and target people while they are on, but more importantly, while they are off Amazon. If you think about how consumers use, they go to Amazon looking for something, they put it in their cart, and then they leave, so they aren’t spending a great deal of time on itself, but that whole time they are searching, browsing, and purchasing, data is being collected about them. Now, all that data that was collected, we can use that and target that same person while they are NOT on, but instead are on Amazon owned properties like FreeVee, Twitch,, and across thousands of other websites and apps that Amazon has partnered with, called Amazon Publishers. Consumers are spending more time with these apps, websites, and programs, so they are now seeing the ads while consuming content on those sites. For example, if I am watching Bosch: Legacy through FreeVee, that’s a 42:00 program where I can see multiple OTT ads and those ads could be targeted to me based on all the information Amazon has about me.

Amazon also has unique opportunities to reach users on and off their site through various targeting strategies:

Behavioral Targeting- Showing a display, video, or OTT ads to specific consumers based on their Amazon purchase history, searches, and browsing, across (only display ads), Amazon owned properties and on Amazon publishers.

This data is gathered from:

What people have searched on Amazon
What people have viewed on Amazon
What people are ‘in-market” for (uses 3rd party and Amazon data)
What people have streamed on Amazon Prime Video
What people have done online to indicate their demographic and economic attributes


Product Targeting- We build an audience of people who have searched, browsed or purchased specific products on Amazon, and show them display, video, or OTT ads on (only display ads), Amazon owned properties and on Amazon publishers.

This targeting strategy is a little bit more precise than behavioral targeting because we are targeting by certain products that can be purchased on Amazon.


This audience is gathered from people who have:

Searched those products keywords on Amazon
Viewed those products on Amazon
Purchased those products on Amazon
Similar characteristics to those who have purchased or viewed those products on Amazon


Custom Audience Matching/Lookalike Audience- We take a list of customer emails or addresses, match them to Amazon users and show them display, video, or OTT ads across (only display ads), Amazon owned properties and on Amazon publishers.


The final targeting strategy that can run in combination with those listed above is retargeting. This is where we follow people after they leave a website and continue to show them a display, video or OTT ads across (only display ads), Amazon owned properties and on Amazon publishers.


Amazon publishers is a collection of comScore 100 websites and apps that have a direct partner relationship with Amazon on and the ads can appear on desktops, mobile devices, and connected TV devices. Some of those publishers consist of:


Pluto TV Fire TV
TubiTV Fire TV
Twitch CTV

Unleash the Power of Forms to Amplify Your Strategy

Welcome to the ultimate guide on amplifying your marketing game! Today, we’re diving deep into a tool that might seem modest but packs a mighty punch: forms. Yep, you heard that right! We’re about to explore how forms can be your secret weapon in elevating engagement, gathering insights, and driving conversions like never before. So buckle up and get ready to supercharge your marketing efforts with the untapped potential of forms.

Grasping the Significance of Forms

Forms are not just about data collection; they’re your golden ticket to direct interaction with your audience. Whether it’s a simple contact form or an in-depth survey, these nifty tools pave the way for meaningful conversations, building trust, and nurturing long-lasting relationships.

Think of data you’re collecting as little pieces of information about your customers, or potential customers.  What do they like?  What do they dislike?  Where are they from?  What are their names?  What’s their email address?  All of these pieces of information helps keep your business running.

Why is all of this first party data important?  Well, as 2024 progresses, we’re going to see a phase out of 3rd party cookies,  a part of the Privacy Sandbox initiative that’s coming in the 2nd half of this year.   These 3rd party cookies have been a fundamental part of the web for nearly 3 decades.  From tracking your website activities to helping you log in to a website by remembering your login info and showing you relevant ads on website you go to these will be gone later this year.

That means it’s going to be even more important for business owners to start collecting data from their clients or prospective customers.


Exploring Different Forms and Their Impact

Now, let’s take a look at the diverse world of forms and how each type can benefit your marketing strategy:

Contact Forms: Your digital calling card, these forms make it effortless for visitors to connect with you. By streamlining communication, you’re opening doors to potential collaborations, inquiries, and opportunities.

Lead Generation Forms: Say hello to your ultimate lead magnet! Offer something irresistible – like an exclusive ebook or webinar – in exchange for contact details, and watch your subscriber list skyrocket.

Feedback Forms: Valuable insights are just a form away! Whether it’s refining your products or enhancing your services, feedback forms are your ticket to understanding your audience on a deeper level.

Survey Forms: Dive into the minds of your audience with surveys. Uncover their preferences, pain points, and desires, and tailor your offerings to meet their needs.

Order Forms: Simplify the buying process with user-friendly order forms. From seamless transactions to satisfied customers, these forms are your go-to for boosting conversions.


Best Practices to Maximize Form Effectiveness

Ready to unleash the full potential of your forms? Here are some tried-and-true tactics to ensure they’re firing on all cylinders:

Keep It Snappy: Ain’t nobody got time for lengthy forms! Keep it short, sweet, and straightforward, asking only for essential information. Remember, clarity is key.

Mobile Optimization: Don’t leave your mobile users hanging! Ensure your forms are mobile-friendly for a seamless experience across all devices.

Incentivize Action: Who doesn’t love a good incentive? Offer rewards – like discounts or freebies – to encourage form submissions and boost engagement.

Instant Gratification: Show your appreciation with instant feedback. Whether it’s a thank-you message or a confirmation email, let your audience know their input is valued.

Continuous Improvement: Don’t rest on your laurels! Monitor form performance, gather feedback, and embrace A/B testing to fine-tune your approach for optimal results.


Here are some fun and important stats we’ve found to help you with the different forms you may implement in your marketing:

120% – Forms that feature images or video see a 120.62% increase in completion rates over forms that do not.
5% – lead magnets increase your form completion rate by almost 5% (lead magnet could be a discount, giveaway, free trial, gift card or something else in exchange for completing the form)
7% – Including a number at the beginning of your form can increase its completion rate by more than 7%.

You’ll get a gift card in 3-5 days
We only have 25 spots available
This will only take 40 seconds

25% – Forms with “exclusive” language have 25% higher completion rates. Meaning, make it worth their while.  Here are a few examples:

“Be the First”
“Get Early Access”
“Members Only”

Here are a few more visuals:

Real-Life Success Stories

Let’s take a peek behind the curtain and see how some savvy brands have harnessed the power of forms:

Airbnb: By listening to their users through feedback forms, Airbnb stays ahead of the curve, constantly improving the user experience for hosts and guests alike.

HubSpot: Lead generation forms are the backbone of HubSpot’s marketing strategy, offering valuable content in exchange for contact information and nurturing leads through the sales funnel.

SurveyMonkey: Practice what you preach! SurveyMonkey gathers feedback from users to enhance its own platform, ensuring it remains a top choice for survey enthusiasts.


As a local business owner, there are lots of advantages to having this first party data.  Imagine having a database of people that have done business with you.  You can sort that data any way you want.  Maybe you’ve got people that did business with you last year, but not yet this year?  Maybe you have people that have bought living room furniture but nothing for bedrooms?  Or, maybe they’ve gotten their oil changed, but haven’t serviced their transmission?

When you have this first party data, you could use Custom Audience Matching to specifically target these customers.  Custom Audience Matching takes the info in your database (names, phone numbers, emails) and uses that to find people in your database online.  Once we have matched them, we can then serve specific ads to that audience.

Forms may not be the flashiest tool in your marketing toolkit, but boy, do they deliver results! Whether it’s engaging your audience, gathering insights, or driving conversions, forms are your secret weapon for success. So don’t underestimate their power; embrace it, wield it, and watch your business soar to new heights!

What Are the New Call to Action Buttons with Social Mirror Ads?

When most people heard that Beyonce was making a crossover country album, they went up in arms. Myself, as an avid country music fan, I was pumped! Beyonce is a queen and country music is my jam, so what’s not to love? It’s the best of both worlds! That is also how I feel about the new Social Mirror call to action opportunities and the ability to use click/scan to call, click/scan to email, and click/scan for directions. (Any chance to be able to show a picture of me with Luke Bryan, I am going to take it!)

Social Mirror ads are a great option for advertisers because creating the ads is almost effortless, they are versatile since you can use images, videos, or carousel formats, they can be customized, they have a social media component to them, and they come in different formats like OTT ads and story ads.

Up until recently, if a business’ main goal was phone calls or getting emails, their ad options were limited since most digital advertising, when users click on an ad, they are directed to a click through URL landing page. Google Pay-Per-Click (PPC) ads are an exception because they offer the option to run Call Only Ads which are designed to encourage people to call a business instead of going to a website, and they only appear on mobile devices. When a potential customer clicks the ad, the ad places a call to the business from their device. Google does not allow an advertisers business phone number to be listed in the main ad text of a PPC ad, unless you do a Call Ad. Another option to have people call a business through a PPC ad is with a Call Extension with a regular PPC text ad. Call Extensions run during the days/hours that the advertiser’s business is open, and it displays a phone number that is clickable and opens the user’s phone dialer, if they are using a mobile device. If the user were to click anywhere else on the text ad, they would be brought to the click through URL landing page.

Facebook ads are another type of ad that will allow a user to make a phone call directly from the ad that they are served, but this option comes with some drawbacks. Facebook ads with “Call Now” as the call-to-action typically have low click through and engagement rates, and they are only effective during business hours. Also, the people that may have clicked “Call Now” on their phone may have not even meant to; they could have been scrolling down their News Feed and then tap the button by accident, resulting in inflated metrics.

Outside of those two ads, there wasn’t really an effective way to make phone calls with a digital advertising campaign, until now. Social Mirror ads now offer the ability to click to call, click to email, and click for directions for display, video, and carousel formats, and scan to call, scan to email, and scan for directions for the Social Mirror OTT format.

This is a great addition to ads that already have click through rates that tend to outperform other types of ads, and it also allows for consumers to take more of an action directly from the ad. Being able to tap or scan and make a phone call makes it incredibly easy for potential customers to connect with a business directly from the ad. With just one click or scan, customers and prospective customers can initiate a phone call, eliminating the need to manually dial a number or search for contact information.

Click to call buttons also encourage real-time interaction. When users click the call-to-action button, they’re expressing an immediate interest in your product or service, allowing for instant communication, and potentially leading to quicker conversions. Also, users who are interested in making a purchase or seeking more information can seamlessly transition from browsing the ad to engaging with your business directly. Phone calls also provide a more personal form of communication. This can lead to better engagement and a deeper connection with your brand, as users have the opportunity to ask questions and receive immediate responses. With the widespread use of smartphones, click to call call-to-action buttons are particularly effective on mobile devices, and with consumers spending 4 hours and 39 minutes on our mobile phones doing non-voice activities every day, that is a lot of opportunity for Social Mirror click to call ads to be served.

Click/scan to email is also another call to action button that is available. By encouraging users to email, you can capture leads directly into your inbox. This gives you the opportunity to follow up promptly and nurture leads through the sales funnel. With this format, you are also able to pre-populate the “To” field and can have multiple email addresses loaded in, and you can also pre-populate the “Subject” and “Body” fields within the email, making it quicker and easier for the consumer to reach out. Click to email call-to action buttons can serve various purposes, including requesting more information, scheduling appointments, providing feedback, or initiating a purchase. This versatility makes it suitable for a wide range of advertising campaigns and objectives.

The other option for a more personalized call-to-action is click/scan for directions. By offering directions directly from the ad, users can click on the call-to-action button to get directions to a physical location without having to manually enter addresses into their navigation apps. Providing directions also encourages users to visit your physical location, resulting in increased foot traffic. This is particularly beneficial for brick-and-mortar businesses such as retail stores and restaurants.

As I mentioned earlier, Social Mirror ads tend to get higher engagement rates than other ads because they have that social media element to them, with which people are used to interacting. They also have more of an organic and native feel within the user’s content and are less intrusive than traditional ads. They can be particularly effective at capturing the attention and driving engagement amongst those who are heavy users of social media.

What are You Tube Video Action Ads?

Ready, set action! This always makes me think of the game growing up, “Red Light, Green Light!”. You hurry up and go when you hear “Green light” headed to base and run and then hear “red light”, and you pump your brakes, and hope the caller does not see you move. And in the world of fastest growing type of marketing which is  video advertising, that is kind of like what YouTube Action Ads are. They stop you in your tracks.

Let’s set the stage first. Picture this: you’re scrolling through your YouTube feed, searching for a solution to a problem or simply seeking some entertainment. Suddenly, amidst the sea of content, a video ad catches your eye. It’s not just any ad – it’s dynamic, engaging, and prompts you to take action. That, my friends, is the essence of a video action ad.

So, what exactly sets these ads apart from the rest? It’s all about interactivity and engagement. Video action ads on YouTube are designed to encourage viewers to do more than just watch passively. They prompt users to engage with the content in meaningful ways, whether it’s by clicking a link, subscribing to a channel, or even making a purchase or learning more about what they are seeing then and there.

One of the key advantages of video action ads is their ability to drive immediate action. Unlike traditional video ads that might simply raise brand awareness, these ads are engineered to prompt users to take the next step in the customer journey. And with YouTube being the second largest search engine next to Google and the second most popular social channel behind Facebook, it is certainly a place to be!









The way they look is very simple really, the video ad includes a button overlay banner that includes a Call-To-Action button, your logo, a headline and your website URL and links to your website when clicked!

With Video action campaigns, you can tell your brand’s story with longer headlines and have access to top-performing places like YouTube’s home feed, watch page, watch next feed, YouTube search results and Google video partners — all within one campaign. Targeting for these ads includes behavior targeting and retargeting. Google Video Partners are high-quality publishers, DoubleVerify filtered, websites and mobile apps where you can show your video ads to viewers beyond YouTube. Partner sites and apps consist of leading publishers in games, sports, entertainment and news.




But let’s not forget the power of storytelling in these ads. Sure, they’re designed for action, but that doesn’t mean they should sacrifice creativity or narrative. In fact, the most effective video action ads often weave a compelling story that resonates with viewers on a deeper level. Whether it’s through humor, emotion, or suspense, a well-crafted narrative can turn a fleeting viewer into a loyal customer.

Now, let’s talk strategy. Crafting a successful video action ad requires careful planning and execution. From defining clear objectives to understanding your target audience and optimizing for mobile viewing, there are many factors to consider. It’s also crucial to experiment with different formats, CTAs, and messaging to see what resonates best with your audience.

Of course, no discussion of video action ads would be complete without mentioning measurement and optimization. When testing these ads we saw a HUGE lift in clicks, almost 7 times higher than regular You Tube Video ads.

Video action ads on YouTube represent a powerful tool for marketers looking to engage audiences and drive action. By combining creativity, interactivity, and strategic planning, these ads have the potential to captivate viewers and convert them into loyal customers. So why wait? Green light your way to video action ads and take your marketing efforts to new heights!
