Twitter mobile Ads Manager officially launched

This new marketing strategy will make it possible to track ad campaign performance over smartphones.

Twitter has now released an official announcement of the launch of its mobile Ads Manager, which makes it possible for Twitter app users to be able to track the performance of their ad campaigns.

This includes the spend, the number of engagements, the cost per engagement, the number of impressions, and the engagement rate.

The mobile ads manager was formally announced by Twitter. For smartphone users with iPhone 6 and above, the new button for insight into ad performance now appears on the profile page next to the “Settings” icon. That said, for iPhone 5 users to be able to use this feature, they need to click the gear icon to bring up the Twitter Ads option. For Android users, they need to choose the drop-down from the Settings option. This, according to the announcement from the social network.

This mobile ads feature was designed for smartphone and tablet users in mind, but doesn’t allow for advertisement design.

Instead, an ad campaign must be created over a laptop or desktop computer.

This represents a different direction from the social media marketing strategy that was recently implemented by Facebook when they created their dedicated Facebook Ads Manager App, which not only allows marketers to be able to monitor their ad campaigns while on the go, but also create them from their smartphones and tablets.

That said, once the mobile ads have been created, the Twitter Ads button that is available on smartphones and tablets provide a range of different metrics summaries across the campaigns. Moreover, it also allows campaign bids to be edited, and budgets and schedules can be altered. Furthermore, Twitter has also pointed out that it is possible for campaigns to be extended paused, or resumed after having been paused.

Social media marketing on mobile could boost Twitter value

The growth over smartphones and tablets could make its IPO price a bargain in the long run.

Twitter, the social media marketing network giant has announced that it intends to increase the proposed price for its initial public offering (IPO) which is expected later on this week.

This helps to illustrate the enthusiasm that the company is experiencing as its IPO grows nearer.

As Twitter talks to prospective institutional investors about its future as a network and in social media marketing, it is clear that they are receiving a considerable response. This has caused buyers to wonder whether they should be looking at this new price as an opportunity.

Last week, it looked as though the price per share would be much different for this social media marketing company.

Social Media Marketing Twitter ValueThe IPO stock price had originally been estimated to be somewhere between $17 to $20 per share. This had investors extremely enthusiastic about putting their money behind this social media marketing company, as it appeared clear that the price would rise. However, the bankers from Twitter are now raising the price range so that it will now land between $23 and $25 per share.

That said, even though the new valuation may have cause investors to hesitate before moving forward with the social media marketing company, it does look as though they are still interested. The reluctance, at first, was quite pronounced, but even at the higher end of that price range, it still looks as though it could be quite a profitable opportunity over the longer term.

If one considers the next twelve months for the social media marketing network, it is quite a hefty valuation to have assigned the company. However, as an investment into the future and not into the short term, this could be a substantial chance to watch prices rise.

This is especially true because it is well known that the ads on Twitter have only barely touched on their full potential and that social media marketing is due to explode. Some in the industry have even predicted that Twitter may take Facebook’s position, next year, as the leader among the network giants.
