Twitter Adds Two New Tracking Tools To Measure ROI On Ads


Twitter today announced two enhancements to its ad conversion tracking tools to give marketers more insight into ROI from Twitter campaigns.

The new features — “transaction values” and “key conversion tags” — both enable website owners to see sales that were directly driven by Promoted Tweet efforts and are available globally to all advertisers. They both require placement of conversion tags on websites; such tags had previously been used for remarketing purposes. Now, Twitter product manager Abhishek Shrivastava explained in a blog post, the tags can be adjusted to track sales figures:

“If you’ve implemented our website tag already, you can make some simple changes to the tag to start collecting conversion values and order quantities for each conversion. These values are aggregated and reported back in your Twitter Ads analytics dashboard to provide insights on your ROI from your Promoted Tweet campaigns. If you aren’t using conversion tracking yet, it’s easy to get started by creating a tag in your Twitter Ads UI and implementing it within your site.”


Key conversion tags allow further refinement of campaign measurement, enabling marketers to optimize for a specific conversion event. Here’s Twitter’s explanation of how it works:

“Suppose a flower shop wants to use Twitter Ads to drive more sales of their Easter bouquets. Once the shop places a website tag on the final conversion page for the bouquet and selects that tag as the key tag for their campaign, Twitter can automatically start to optimize the campaign towards driving more conversions on the bouquet sale page. The shop will also have the ability to view the number of bouquet purchases in their Twitter Ads analytics dashboard, as soon as those conversions occur. Because Twitter conversion tracking works in a cross-device fashion, even if a user sees the flower shop’s ad on a mobile device but later converts on a desktop, Twitter Ads analytics will be able to track and report that conversion.”

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
