Coronavirus could cost U.S. advertising industry billions

Article | March 12, 2020

The U.S. advertising industry could face steep losses as sports leagues cancel or postpone live events and consumers spend less while many stay at home during the coronavirus outbreak, experts said on Thursday. With companies widely expected to slash marketing budgets, the ad industry could see nearly $26 billion in lost revenue, or a 10.6% decline, Michael Nathanson, an analyst at MoffettNathanson, estimated in a research note on Thursday. The coronavirus effect on live sports, one of the last remaining categories that continues to attract large audiences and therefore advertisers to traditional television, could “accelerate a meltdown” for TV advertising, said Richard Greenfield, a media analyst at Lightshed Partners.

3 Facebook Ad Ideas to Get Your Content Seen by Your ‘Perfect’ Audience

Article | June 21, 2021

You have countless ways to promote your content online, but one of the most effective is Facebook ads. With over 1.8 billion daily active users, you can almost guarantee your audience is there. You just need to learn how to get your content in front of them. Given a Facebook post’s organic reach is in the single digits, your time is best spent making the advertising side work for your content. In this guide, I detail three of my most effective ways to promote content using Facebook advertising (without ever touching that boost button.) 1. Create a “content bucket” campaign to reach new fans Many content creators are focused on more. They want more fans, more readers/listeners/viewers. With that in mind, focus first on growing your audience by reaching people who are unfamiliar with your brand or your brand’s content – but who would be interested in your topic. My “content bucket” campaign idea works so you don’t have to spend too much time creating big Facebook campaigns for every piece of content you publish.

If it’s a blog, podcast, YouTube video, or other non-Facebook content, select traffic.

Google banned ads for face masks earlier this month. Why we care. Digital platforms have struggled to stay ahead of misinformation and fraudulent claims as well as price gauging by advertisers trying to take advantage of the coronavirus crisis. This policy update may appear subtle, but it gives Google a clearer path to take action against bad actors and prevent advertisers from advertising on coronavirus-related keywords during this pandemic.
