Twitter Prepping Ad-Retargeting Exchange to Rival Facebook's - AdAge

Twitter Prepping Ad-Retargeting Exchange to Rival Facebook's - AdAge | Innovate U | Scoop.it
following the success of facebook's retargeting exchange, twitter plans to build its own version of fbx to let brands retarget visitors with ads on twitter.

 

Excerpt...

 

The micro-blogging platform is planning to erect an exchange similar to FBX that would let brands retarget people who visit their sites with ads on Twitter, according to people with knowledge of the matter. Twitter did not respond to requests for comment.

 

It's unclear how far along Twitter is in building the exchange, though Facebook managed to create FBX from scratch in a month. In keeping with the company's measured approach to advertising, Twitter is performing its due diligence. Since at least late last year, the company has met with several FBX partners who are well-versed in locating on Facebook people who had previously visited a brand’s site and retargeting them with non-standard display ads on the social network, in hopes of luring them back to the brand site. It works by by pinging a partner when a cookied user visits Facebook so that the partner can bid to target ads to that user on the social network. The talks are early but ongoing, and Twitter has not briefed potential partners on a planned launch date.

Recognition is a key component of Employee Success. What gets recognized get repeated. Recognizing employees for hitting targets and exemplifying corporate values reinforces behavior that impacts the bottom line. According to recent research by Aon Hewitt, organizations with high engagement rates are 78% more productive than disengaged organizations. The powerful combination of engaged employees and brilliant performance is critical to business success.

Love Learning's curator insight, May 21, 2013 9:16 AM

Interesting stats on the effects of engagement on performance. Also worth noting the advice on recognition leans towards little and often.

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's curator insight, December 15, 2013 10:39 AM

The good news is when you are able to explain your career transition face-to-face. 

 

Good tips in this article. 

 

My advice:  Once you know what you are going to say -- how your going to say it is just as important. 

Practice with friends and make sure that you sound honest, genuine, and real.  You won't land a job when the recruiter feels sorry for you.

 

Remember how you say it is an inside job.  You have to believe it inside first.  Believing in what you are saying so that it doesn't sound like you are making excuses for yourself is important.

 

What tips have helped you?
