[Podcast] Marketing Land Live #43: Cool, creepy and contemporary – Super Bowl LI ads hit the web

ML-live-logo-1920

Marketing Land’s annual Hashtag Bowl is just a few days away, and a flood of Super Bowl ads have finally been released online. Some advertisers are making news and attracting buzz by being contemporary — releasing ads that tie-in with current events, but doing it without being overly political. Other advertisers are sticking with more tried-and-true themes like sex and violence.

In this week’s episode of our Marketing Land Live podcast, Amy Gesenhues and I talk about the hits and misses so far with Super Bowl ads that have been pre-released. We share our own favorites, and also talk about the ways advertisers are trying to maximize the visibility of their ads and teaser videos.

This week’s episode runs about 29 minutes. You can listen here or use the link below to subscribe via your favorite podcast service.

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…
