Shopify adds new Facebook, Snapchat ad buying options from the e-commerce platform

Shopify is giving Facebook and Snapchat advertisers new ways to purchase ads through its e-commerce platform. On Monday the company announced its users will be able to create, manage and launch Facebook dynamic ad campaigns through its e-commerce solution. Shopify is also launching new integrations with Snapchat, making it possible for clients to create Story Ads campaigns via a Snapchat Ads App from Shopify.

Facebook dynamic ads through Shopify. In addition to Carousel ad campaigns that were already available via Shopify’s platform, Facebook advertisers will now be able to launch dynamic ads via their Shopify accounts starting this week.

“With Facebook’s dynamic ads, merchants can simply set their campaign goals and the right products will be surfaced to the right customers through Facebook’s platform, while syncing with Shopify for updated pricing and product availability,” said Shopify.

Snapchat Ads integrations. Snapchat advertisers using Shopify will now have a Snapchat Ads App that allows them to create Story Ad campaigns within Shopify’s self-serve buying interface. The new system will support geographic, demographic and interest-based targeting for Story Ads.

Advertisers will be able to connect their Shopify stores to the Snapchat Ads manager, making it possible to automatically sync product catalog information (a process that previously had to happen manually). The new Shopify-Snapchat integration will also provide a Snap Pixel auto-install feature so that advertisers can easily install the Snap Pixel on their websites.

Snapchat said the Shopify integration will be rolling out over the next few weeks. Snap provided the following image of Shopify’s Snapchat Ads App:

Why we should care. Shopify’s latest Facebook and Snapchat integrations offer e-commerce advertisers seamless ad creation and management processes for more of their social campaigns. The new features not only open up more campaign options through Shopify’s platform, the automated syncing of product information from Shopify’s platform will be a major time-saver for marketers managing multiple e-commerce campaigns across the social platforms.

These latest integrations expand on Shopify’s existing Facebook Carousel Ads, Google Search Ads and YouTube ad capabilities.

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…
