4 Steps to Making Facebook Ads Work–at Last!
August 6, 2012 From Today @ Target Marketing
Those crazy Facebook ads. At a recent session at the Acquisio User Summit on Facebook ads, 25 people raised their hands to indicate that they had used Facebook for advertising, while only four raised their hands to indicate that they had achieved any success with them. One of the biggest reasons is the low clickthrough rate (CTR) inherent on a site in which people are otherwise engaged. Getting someone to not just see, but actually click on an ad on Facebook is like the Mount Everest of digital advertising; many people have aspired to reach the top, but few have managed to see the world from the top of this lofty peak.

The Muddled Math of Social Media Marketing
May 22, 2012 From Today @ Target Marketing
I have spent 50 years in direct marketing. It is a precision business model with three elements that can be described in 85 words: 1) Testing. If something works in a small quantity, you run confirming tests in a larger arena. If the results hold up, you roll out and cream the market; 2) Discipline. Be it direct mail, off-the-page advertising or broadcast, the overriding constraints are size and accessibility of the specific universe and cost-per-thousand; and 3) Measurable Arithmetic. Rules include: allowable cost per order, ROI and lifetime value of the customer. Direct marketing arithmetic is precise right down to tenths and hundredths of a percentage-otherwise known as a gnat's eyebrow.
