Sponsored Post Tips

If you’re new to sponsored posts, here are a few tips to get the ball rolling.

Control

Sponsored posts are a great way to get your message across to your audience. Unlike organic posts, where you have low control of who sees your message, the beauty of a sponsored post is that you can get very granular with how you want to target.

You should be targeting sponsored posts based on interests, behaviors, demographics, etc. The key is to make sure the right users are seeing your posts without having audiences sizes too large or small. This allows you to focus your message to each persona and gauge the level of interest with engagement rates.

High Engagement

Another advantage of sponsored posts is that they have high read rates – meaning posts are actually read by the users.

On social platforms, users have developed immunity to ads that appear in their peripheral vision (such as on the side widgets). However, the very nature of sponsored posts places them in the center of gaze, making sure that the messages are being read more often than not.

Persona Audience

Last but not least, Marketers have to fine-tune their message for each platform by taking into account user behaviors. Here are a few examples:

  • LinkedIn, being a professional network does very well with business messages (e.g. download a white paper).
  • Facebook is great for viral or feel-good messages.
  • Twitter, a platform used for professional as well as personal accounts, is a great place to test both kinds of messaging.
