Facebook generated more than $17bn in revenue in 2015, primarily from its ad products.
Despite this, brands active on Facebook are overly dependent on organic reach to distribute their content on the world's largest social network.
New research from Wisemetrics shows that while on average many pages have seen a drop in organic reach, the top 1% of pages still reached 82% of their fans, more than five times the average.
Marketers around the globe have been making dissatisfied rumblings about Facebook organic reach for a while now. The general consensus being: You’ve got to pay to play.
That doesn’t mean that we’ve got to pay Facebook though...
2012 has been an interesting year for brand marketers active on Facebook. The world's social network went public and as a result, has more aggressively moved to monetize its massive audience. That in turn has introduced some new dynamics to the Facebook-brand relationship.
Recently, there has been a lot of buzz around changes Facebook has apparently made to its Edgerank algorithm. The theory: Facebook is making it more difficult for brands to reach their fans organically in an effort to promote use of its Promoted Posts ad product.
Mobile is everywhere, and while it might not be everything, one need look no further than Facebook to recognize that for many companies, figuring mobile out is crucial.
But despite the obvious opportunities being created by the mobile explosion, many questions remain. One of the biggest: just how big is the mobile ad market going to be?
For brand marketers looking to figure out whether or not their Twitter investments are paying off, metrics are a big challenge.
Arguably the most prominent Twitter metric, followers, is of limited use in practice, particularly since it's so easy to game. Other metrics, such as retweets, may be slightly more meaningful, but they're often difficult to connect to the most important business KPIs as well.
Women may like Facebook more than men, as evidence by the fact that approximately 60% of the social network's population is female, but for marketers looking for consumers who like their ads, targeting men may be a more effective and cost-efficient approach.
That's according to a new study conducted by marketing software firm Kenshoo and Resolution Media which looked at 65bn Facebook ad impressions and 20m clicks over the course of the last year.
Brand marketers may 'like' Facebook, but the world's largest social network has created numerous challenges. ROI is often hard to find; Facebook says it can take a year to produce. And despite the promise, certain kinds of initiatives may simply not work.
Now that it's a publicly-traded company, Facebook is under even greater pressure to live up to its valuation, which currently reflects the fact that investors believe the social network has significant room to grow. To deliver the necessary growth, it has to find ways to convince marketers that it's a productive marketing platform.
Unfortunately for everyone involved, that may not be easy, and it may create big headaches.
We recently asked marketers whether TV was still necessary for reaching the masses. They disagreed with that idea by a large margin...but are they right? How do digital and TV match up when scale is the number one variable?
The iPad provides a much richer experience and real-estate than the standard mobile phone or even the iPhone. New iPad advertising formats, dubbed iPadvertising, might start to bear fruit not only for mobile advertising, but the advertising industry in general.
Will mobile advertising finally grow up and be taken seriously with the emergence of the tablet?
