Twitter Ads Add Intrigue 2010-04-13T20:55:00Z

By Scott Anthony

For what seems like forever, Twitter has been the white-hot startup staring at a critical, unanswered question: How will it translate hype, and seemingly never-ending traffic growth, into profits?

Yesterday the company announced its intentions to offer corporations the opportunity to sponsor Tweets. So-called “Promoted Tweets” will appear when people search for particular terms. Only a single sponsored Tweet will appear alongside search results. The Tweet will appear as long as it demonstrates “resonance” with the audience by being clicked or re-Tweeted. Twitter doesn’t plan to charge companies whose sponsored Tweets don’t generate high resonance. Presumably Tweets with high resonance scores will pay price premiums.

What’s to like about this move? While it’s easy to dismiss “Promoted Tweets” as just another advertising play, Twitter’s attempt to measure resonance is intriguing. Remember, companies don’t advertise for advertising sake. Rather, they advertise to help them achieve other business objectives, such as attracting new customers, or further enhancing brand loyalty. Finding novel ways to track the impact of advertising — and pricing that advertising accordingly — carries interesting potential.

Also, Twitter recognizes that its quest to develop its business model is just beginning. Senior executives plan to proceed at a judicious pace (aided, of course, by the $160 million the company has raised from venture capitalists.) The company is still in learning and experimentation mode, which is appropriate given uncertainties around its new business model. After all, it took Google a couple of years before it ironed out the kinks in its search-based advertising model.

So, there’s a potential twist and a sensible way for Twitter to learn its way to success. While this doesn’t yet classify as a breakthrough, it is an encouraging development for Twitter.

Twitter Fuels iPad’s Big Buzz, but Sentiment Generally Neutral

April 7, 2010
Apple’s new wireless tablet, iPad, generated media reviews from “game changer” to “just a big iPod Touch.” On the day of its release, three of the top 10 most linked to news stories centered around the device. Based on Nielsen buzz data, the consumer sentiment, while leaning positive, is predominantly neutral as users are just getting their first look at the multitasking device and are considering the value of its features. As more reviews appeared and the device was released, sentiment and overall buzz volume began to drift upward and “neutral” commentary slowed down.

Of all channels contributing to consumer generated media around iPad, Twitter was the clear leader for sheer volume. Message boards, specifically gaming sites like helped boost the conversation as consumers discussed the emergence of the iPad as a viable gaming outlet.

Amid Downturn, Asia Pacific Leads Global Advertising Growth

March 29, 2010

Advertising spend was hard hit in 2009 – down 1.6 percent compared to 2008, according to Nielsen’s Global AdView Pulse, which reports advertising across 27 markets in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa.

The overall outcome of 2009 advertising is the result of totally different behaviors within the regions. Asia Pacific inverted the downturn quite early in the year and, since quarter two, has been the only region to show growth compared to 2008 (+6.6%). Europe, which is still below the levels of the previous year (-4.9%), showed improvement in the second half of the year and moved to the positive side of the scale in the last quarter of the year. North America shows the largest percentage decline versus the previous year (-9.4%) and, though the percentage decrease is more contained in the last quarter, the level of expenditure has not matched that of 2008 yet.

For Twitter, Sharing Data With Google Would Be Suicide

social stream to the same extent that Google has done with search. That is not good for anyone, including Facebook. I have had many discussions with people in recent weeks about the face-off between twitter and Facebook and also about the high probability of Twitter cutting a deal with Google.

Why Facebook and Twitter Should Work Together This content requires a paid GigaOM Pro subscription

It’s refreshing to see Facebook working with Twitter more after so much premature analysis of who’s going to “kill” whom. A new feature that emerged late last week lets administrators of Facebook Pages (the pages for celebrities, organizations and businesses but not regular Joes) send status updates out directly as tweets. As Facebook and Twitter both move to court more business users, it makes sense for their closest collaboration to focus first on businesses. E-commerce, which will ultimately be a big part of each company’s business, is perhaps the area where the two need each other most

Two More Publishers Talk About Blocking Google

A couple of major publishers are siding with (or at least edging towards) Rupert Murdoch in the News Corp./Google content dispute.  MediaNews Group and A.H. Belo execs have said that they’re interested in keeping Google away from parts of their sites.

Let’s talk about MediaNews Group first.  It operates 54 daily newspapers with a combined daily circulation of 2.4 million.  Corresponding websites are part of the mix, as are a TV station and some radio stations.

Google LogoAs for the organization’s take on blocking Google, CEO Dean Singleton told Greg Bensinger and Brian Womack that some pay walls are going up next year, and “[t]he things that go behind pay walls, we will not let Google search to, but the things that are outside the pay wall we probably will, because we want the traffic.”

Razorfish’s FEED Study: Brands Are the New Celebrity

razorfishYou know social media is a powerful tool for business when a grocery store attracts more Twitter followers than pop star Lady Gaga and almost as many as Miley Cyrus, whose departure drove her 2 million fans to make #MileyComeBack a trending topic for more than a day. If Whole Foods Market ever followed suit, its 1.5 million registered fans would surely start a virtual food fight.
That’s a fair assumption to make based on the latest FEED study, anyway, from marketing firm Razorfish, which suggests we’re no longer mere customers, we’re brand fans. We sign on to a brand’s Twitter feed to find out about discounts and deals–44% of consumers cited access to exclusive deals as the main reason they follow–but we stick around for the fun.

Interesting or entertaining” content was the No. 1 reason to follow a brand for 23% of the 1,000 consumers surveyed. And a recent report from Penn State found that 20% of all Tweets mention specific brands or products (Today, for example, “Google Wave” and “Modern Warfare 2” are trending topics on Twitter).


The most important take-home from the Razorfish study is that interactions with a brand matter consumers. Of those surveyed, 65% said an online experience with a brand has changed their opinion of that brand, and 97% said that experience influenced whether or not they would purchase an item or service. Those who engage with a brand digitally aren’t just more likely to purchase that brand, they’re more likely to recommend it to their friends.

Most companies are worried that their consumers’ ability to communicate with peers and read user reviews online is crippling the effect of advertising. But Razorfish found that technology isn’t killing advertising–it’s helping it to evolve. Some 69% of consumers provided feedback to a company through social media channels, the company’s Web site, or review sites. These channels are creating two-way communication between brands and their customers.

Think of how you relate to brands today. We’re certainly not the consumers of 10 years ago, or even five years ago. Now we can follow Zappos on Twitter along with 1.5 million others, or be one of Starbucks’ four million Venti Vanilla Bean Frappuccino Blended Creme drinking friends on Facebook..



The most popular and talked about stories of the week.

And as the interactive nature of digital media evolves from brand “awareness” to “purchase” to “recommendation” in one single experience, there are sure to be some big dollar signs attached if companies take advantage of building on their consumer fan base.

Twitters quitters

Posted in Uncategorized by Moe on October 12, 2009

Many Twitters are quick quitters: study
SYDNEY (Reuters) – Today’s Twitters are often tomorrow’s quitters, according to data that questions the long-term success of the latest social networking sensation used by celebrities from Oprah Winfrey to Britney Spears.
Data from Nielsen Online, which measures Internet traffic, found that more than 60 percent of Twitter users stopped using the free social networking site a month after joining.
“Twitter’s audience retention rate, or the percentage of a given month’s users who come back the following month, is currently about 40 percent,” David Martin, Nielsen Online’s vice president of primary research, said in a statement.
San Francisco-based Twitter was created three years ago as an Internet-based service that could allow people to follow the 140-character messages or “tweets” of friends and celebrities which could be sent to computer screens or mobile devices.

“For most of the past 12 months, pre-Oprah, Twitter has languished below 30 percent retention.”

San Francisco-based Twitter was created three years ago as an Internet-based service that could allow people to follow the 140-character messages or “tweets” of friends and celebrities which could be sent to computer screens or mobile devices.

But it has enjoyed a recent explosion in popularity on the back of celebrities such as actor Ashton Kutcher and U.S. talk show host Oprah Winfrey singing its praises and sending out “tweets” which can alert readers to breaking news or the sender’s sometimes mundane activities.

President Barack Obama used Twitter during last year’s campaign and other prominent celebrities on Twitter include basketballer Shaquille O’Neal and singers Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus.

Twitter, as a private company, does not disclose the number of its users but according to Nielsen Online, Twitter’s website had more than 7 million unique visitors in February this year compared to 475,000 in February a year ago.

But Martin said a retention rate of 40 percent will limit a site’s growth to a 10 percent reach figure over the longer term.

“There simply aren’t enough new users to make up for defecting ones after a certain point,” he said in a statement.

Martin said Facebook and MySpace, the more established social network sites, enjoyed retention rates that were twice as high and those rates only rose when they went through their explosive growth phases.

Both currently have retention rates of about 70 percent with Facebook having about 200 million users.

“Twitter has enjoyed a nice ride over the last few months, but it will not be able to sustain its meteoric rise without establishing a higher level of user loyalty,” said Martin.
