Facebook Rolling Out Significant Upgrades To Ads Manager & Power Editor


Facebook Advertisers will soon see major enhancements within their ad interfaces. Big improvements are coming that will increase the congruity of ad creation and editing with data and metrics as well as the usability and searchability within an account. Both Ads Manager and Power Editor tools will be given upgrades:

“We’ve been working closely with marketers and agencies of all sizes to understand what they need to improve the process of buying, optimizing and managing their ad campaigns. These significant upgrades to Ads Manager and Power Editor reflect our commitment to drive measurable business objectives.”
-Matt Idema, Director of Ads Product Marketing, Facebook

Here’s a deeper look into the enhancements of the main two Facebook projects.

Facebook Ads Manager Improvements

The standard web interface for ads, Ads Manager, will become much more useful thanks to the inclusion of ad metrics in with the tool. Historically Ad Manager has been ideal for Marketers looking to create campaigns and ads, but has fallen short on the reporting aspect. The new changes will bring data directly into the same location where ads are being created and manipulated.

Included in Ads Manager campaigns, sets and ads will be the performance, audience and placement results. The date range will be adjustable and performance data can be filterable by objective, metric, delivery status and other options. Maybe the biggest boon to marketers will be the ability to save and send reports at set intervals.

Lastly, Ads Manager will gain some enhanced Power Editor type options that will bring much needed bulk edits to the interface. Users will now have the ability to edit multiple ads, bids, targeting in one fell swoop. Each campaign, set and ad will also have the ability to be duplicated directly within Ads Manager.

Facebook Power Editor Improvements

Ads Manager isn’t the only Facebook tool in town getting a facelift. Power Editor, the advanced Facebook ad tool, will offer advertisers a larger layout with an edit pane for extra efficiency as well as enhanced search. The new layout will allow for advertisers to have more working space for quicker ad editing.

The search feature will allow for searching by name or ID as well as the filtering by delivery status or objective. A “recently edited” and “recently uploaded” filter will also exist to keep recent updates within arm’s reach.

These upgrades are currently being tested by a small percentage of advertisers and will begin rolling out elsewhere starting today. For more information see the official blog post from Facebook.

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…
