Twitter Update

Twitter EBS MarketingJust the other day social media giant, Twitter, announced a beta test of their new video ad feature, which allows businesses and individuals to streamline videos to their audience.

Promoted Videos

Promoted videos use a playback system native to Twitter rather than referring watchers to other video services such as YouTube or Vimeo – meaning better engagement and more views. Alongside this users of Promoted Videos will also be able to have complete control over analytics – measuring the reach and effectiveness of their content.

Cost Per View

Video set up has also been made to be easier, offering advertisers the ability to run ads with a new Cost Per View (CPV) system, meaning publishers only get charged when a user starts playing a video.

Announcement

In their announcement earlier this week David Regan also went on to say:

“In addition to the improvements we’ve made to the advertiser experience, we’re excited to share that we’ve expanded the tests of our native video solution with select content publishers and verified users. The overall goal is to bring more video into our users’ timelines to create a richer and more engaging Twitter.

“Video is an incredible storytelling medium and we’re thrilled to be giving brands, publishers and a subset of verified users the ability to share organic and Promoted Video on Twitter. If you’re a partner and want to start using native video, please contact your account representative for more information.”
