Expanded Text Ads are Here #GoogleAdWords
Have you seen the expanded text ads for Google AdWords?
It’s time to update your campaigns because starting January 31st, 2017 you will no longer be able to create or edit standard text ads within AdWords. The new expanded text format gives you a second headline and more characters to work with. This change was made in part to give a better experience to mobile users.
Google AdWords can be effective in driving business. As you make the transition in your AdWords account to longer ads, use this opportunity to rethink your messaging, especially how it may apply to mobile users. Don’t just add a second headline to your existing campaigns.
Make Your Own Moments
A Twitter Moment is a collection of Tweets that tell a story.
Stitch together multiple tweets into a slideshow-like story and engage with your community around specific topics and events. Use your own content as well as Tweets you’ve curated from others. Twitter recommends to keep your Moments around 10 tweets long, and use a mix of photos, videos, GIFs and vines to keep viewers engaged.
Moments have their own tab, but Twitter is experimenting right now with a new “Explore” tab that will show trending topics, moments, and other content to discover.
