You’ve seen them, you’ve received them, but have you tried Twitter Ads yet? Today I applied for my $25 credit and I’m going to share all the results of my experiment. What can $25 get me on Twitter that my 20k+ followers aren’t already providing?
Hopefully you’ve looked at your new Twitter Dashboard already. It’s free. If you are logged into your Twitter account, go to this url: https://ads.twitter.com
There are some amazing insights available to your right now, no ad or purchase necessary. Check your analytics tab. (Note: be sure and disable AdBlock extensions, as they will block the reports.)
And the really amazing data is given in these engagement charts.
Stay tuned for my Twitter Ad results.
Okay I got my credit from Twitter today.
And I’ve set up the first $25 campaign.
Of course I had to enter a real CC and put some real money up to get the campaign to run. And I’m not all that enthusiastic about a $1.00 per engagment cost. But let’s see what that gets us.
Here are the numbers from my first $20.
7,152 Impressions. That’s an odd number since I have over 20k followers.
0.39% engagement rate
$0.73 per engagement
I’m not sure I can advocate this advertising method unless you are trying to break into an audience where you don’t have any reach.
