"Interaction is Twitter's winning value."

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of the Twitter ad. Interface ,which makes setting up a Twitter ad. Campaign pretty intuitive.

Twitter ad. Provides advertisers with multiple options to benefit from advert-wise on the Twitter platform. Thus we are able to either choose to increase our Twitter follower population ,direct Twitter users to our website ,run surveys , direct Twitter users to install our mobile app etc

However the most important feature on Twitter which really hits me is the level of interaction we get from Twitter users during an advert campaign, as Twitter ad. Enable users communicate with us directly from our ad. Media or tweet.

What do you dislike?

Twitter doesn't offer payment options for all currencies. .Recently the local central bank introduced newer rules restraining online payments in foreign currency for residents.This greatly affected our Twitter ad . Campaigns as we were unable to pay for our campaigns because Twitter wasn't billing us in our local currency.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter serves as an effective,albeit expensive means for my company to put our brand out there in the faces of potential customers.This has been a very successful approach ,but expensive too.

"Expensive but good conversion"

What do you like best?

Twitter ads is a strong competitor in the social media advertising sphere. While in my opinion, it ranks 3rd after Facebook (price-wise) and Instagram (Niche-marketing), I am still a big fan of Twitter ads mainly due to the fact that the conversion rate is higher than other social media platforms.

To make it simple, a customer/sales lead who comes to your website through Twitter is more likely to buy products (and normally their basket has a higher average value) than those who come from Facebook and Instagram.

The ads creation page is easy to use and creating your first ad can be as fast as a few clicks.

The analytics side is also quite comprehensive.

What do you dislike?

The main issue with Twitter ads is cost. Clicks on Twitters ads go as higher as 3-4$ sometimes! While on Facebook you can get them as low as 4 cents! And I believe when Instagram allows us to tag products in our ads it will further increase the gap between those 2 platforms and Twitter.

Targeting can be quite troublesome when you want to target demographics or geographical locations, mainly due to the limitations resulting from how Twitter sign up process works (when users sign up for new accounts, the Gender and Location fields are optional, so users either skip or fill in false info).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Twitter for users looking to eastablish a strong online presence on the platform and the digital sphere.

While a little on the expensive side, the payoff on the long run is quite remarkable, especially that Twitter will show your content to all the followers gained (while other platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, use algorithms that might place your daily content lower or won't even show them to your fans)..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the main benefits of using Twitter ads is the ability to target your competitors' followers. This enabled us to target our client's competitors whenever we ran ads on the platform and helped us not only gain a new customer but also move them away from our client's competitors.

"Twitter is an hub for professionals from all fields."

What do you like best?

Twitter ads. is the fastest way to create social media ads. amongst all social media mediums. With Twitter we have successfully activated ad. campaigns in under five minutes.I love the interactive nature of Twitter,which allows our users ask us live questions by simply responding to our ad. tweet.

What do you dislike?

Twitter ad . appears to be very choosy when it comes to accepting payment methods for ads. While it doesn''t even accept Paypal,which is a widely used payment platform.There are times we have tried Credit cards as our payment methods and was rejected by the Twitter platform.

There is also no responsive support medium when we have run into obstacles.On very few occasions when we have had to contact Twitter via the support form,it took almost three days to get a response and when we did,it was a one line response ; which didn''t even address our complaint.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter ad. enable us reach professionals, who are our major business targets.Since Twitter has the highest professional audience of all social media platforms (according to our in-house data),it is just the perfect means for us to reach our target audience.

"Effective advertizing medium but expensive."

What do you like best?

Twitter allows its users ask questions from an advertizer when they click on his/her promoted tweet. This has greatly helped us as salespeople as we are able to communicate with potential users of our product even before they visit our website .

I have found out in the last few months ,our being able to communicate with potential customers in these way has led to an higher link-clink to customer conversion rate on our Twitter ad. campaigns.

What do you dislike?

In time past ,we've had problems using electronic cards on Twitter .There have been times where we had to try two,three different cards on a single Twitter ad. campaign before it's accepted.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter ad. has allowed us reach potential clients and customers of our service on the Twitter platform. We cannot reach all of these millions of people simply by organic twitter activities. Only via ad. placements can we reach a major percentile of this huge ,active crowd.

"Second Best Among Social Media Platforms"

What do you like best?

The engagement I usually get is not bad. They click the link, visit the site and sometimes they share it with their friends, which doesn't happen much for me in other platforms.

What do you dislike?

If you would like to edit you target profiles after you start the campaign, for instance, you have to export a CSV file and then make your edits and upload it back. This is just ridiculous! Why make things that difficult?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Worth to try. Try to be more specific with your audience and while setting up your ads, make it like the final version because it's very painful to edit it once you save it. It has pretty much the same process with other social ad platforms. Easy to understand. Not as sophisticated as Facebook Ads Manager. Based on my experience, there is totally different and more engaging audience for B2B solutions. Lastly, if you're directing them to your website, make sure that your page is mobile optimized since most of the audience is using the mobile app.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

B2B Lead generation, mostly. If you target very specific audience, you get better results. This is for sure. There are many junk profiles and sometimes accounts from the countries that you didn't target see/click your ads, but overall it helped us to get a few decent leads. Surprisingly, we got better results on Twitter than LinkedIn for B2B lead generation.

"Enables us target professionals."

What do you like best?

Having been at the advertizing desk for two years at my place of work.Twitter ad. allowed us target our most trustworthy customers - professionals .From my experience with Twitter ads. we got more professionals to get involved and use our banking services on Twitter than we were able to,with any other social media advertizement medium.

Coupled with the fact Twitter ad. allows twitter users(potential customers) ask us questions by commenting on our ad. placement ; just makes this advert medium the real deal.

What do you dislike?

Twitter ad. can really be very expensive .At my workplace ,we budgeted averagely $1 per one user acquisition on Twitter ; which was on the high-side in comparism with our other ad. options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter ad. enable us target professionals,who were our primary customers at my place of work and also interact with them during the course of the campaign.

"Effective ad. medium but expensive."

What do you like best?

Twitter ad. is simple to setup and very easy to understand the processes. Most times we get an ad. campaign setup in less than 3-4 minute which is very fast.

It also gives us engagement power as Twitter users can interact with our Twitter handle during ad. campaigns ; allowing us better explain our offering to these users.

What do you dislike?

It is a very expensive medium of advertisement . Currently we average $2 per successful signup on Twitter.

I also wish there is a standby support team behind this tool. Takes weeks at times to even get response to basic question forms submitted.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter ad. has allowed us tap into the pool of potential customers on the Twitter website. Currently we have gotten maybe 20-25% of our current student trainees via our Twitter ad. and that's been props up to this tool/

"Effective Platform for Niche Services"

What do you like best?

For marketers who have a very specific product name or phrase, matching your ad to those using that language is invaluable. Brands who are trying to limit or shift the tone on a topic like their product could very easily promote a landing page that better explains their side, etc.

What do you dislike?

The scope is significantly limited by what is also its best feature - short of broadcasting only to those who repeatedly discuss political names or marketing terms, you're not going to be able to crack into an untapped market very efficiently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not use when simply looking to 'get into the market.' Arguably, it's a difficult conversion platform for sales goals. Instead, use for redirects on reputation management or very unique phrases showing consumer interest

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reputation management and awareness around very specific products

"Straightforward campaign setup"

What do you like best?

I like how simple it is to setup a new campaign and there are clear options for the different types of campaigns to run depending on your goal e.g. grow followers or direct traffic to a landing page.

What do you dislike?

The level of granularity in ads targeting means you can't be as detailed when compared to other social media advertising platforms - but you just need to be aware of this when deciding which platform to use and for what purpose.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The content you use in the ad is probably the most important factor in determining if you will get a good response. You can actually test several variations of ads toon a small target audience to identify which one performs best, before using it for the full campaign.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It can be hard to make yourself heard on Twitter because of the huge amounts of "noise", so the ads platform helps you cut through that to reach the right type of audience.

"Great for retargeting, that's about it"

What do you like best?

The User Interface is incredibly easy. Its super simple to get ads up and running.

What do you dislike?

The targeting is horrible. As a B2B marketer, I can't really target the people I'm trying to reach very well. I can target groups and demographics, and other Twitter followers, but to me, that's not much better than casting a wide net. However, it is great for retargeting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Probably good to use Twitter, while they're still around. Its hard to say if your target audience is actually using Twitter, since it seems like an echo chamber and most Twitter accounts aren't even real people (as in, they're run by marketers/ automation/ pr reps). But for remarketing you probably won't have that problem as much.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Get people engaged with our content and turned into leads.

"Effective! "

What do you like best?

I like the user interface, which is very easy to navigate around. I also like the fact that users who pick interest in our ads. Can ask us questions via the same ad.

Twitter ad. Also promotes organic extension, such as the ability for Twitter users who see our ads to retweet it, thereby making it available to some of their own followers who haven't even come across the ad.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is very difficult to get a good product description for our ad. Which falls within Twitters limit of 140 characters.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter ad. Allow us create ads. Targeting a select group of Twitter users, which our Research shows are likely to be in need of our service and product offerings.

"Okay for scheduling"

What do you like best?

We use twitter ads primarily to schedule upcoming tweets. Its great because its free.

What do you dislike?

I cant get the time zone to change for scheduling (its in Alaska time and we are on the east coast) even though I've changed my preferences. And I also don't like how you have to hunt through to see your scheduled tweets.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You may have a more streamlined process by selecting a third-party vendor for scheduling instead of relying on Twitter.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Intuitive tool, easy to use and optimize"

What do you like best?

I love how, without any training, I could step in and start using this tool in a professional capacity for a large brand successfully. It's not hard to pick up and if you understand the industry and how paid social media works, optimizing is simple and not time intensive. Not sure why anyone would use a third party tool for this.

What do you dislike?

I wish the Twitter Analytics tools and the Twitter Ads platform were a bit more integrated. I really think they go hand in hand but seem a bit segmented.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Test test test. Testing will always be a very important part of what you do. It's easy to spend small amounts of money to find out what works, what doesn't, and what direction to take the campaigns.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Brands don't typically allocate large amounts of money to social buys. With tight budgets, it's really important to get the most out of your money. It's easy to stay efficient with the platform.

"Love Love Love Twitter Ads!"

What do you like best?

Once of my favorite and most useful ads platforms to date! Twitter offers amazing support to get you rocking and rolling with their ads platform. Setting up an ad campaign is very easy. The dashboard allows rather specific or general targeting and you can set your pacing options. It's easier than setting up a Facebook ads campaign and just as effective. Target the people you need to reach and drive results. It's painless, I promise.

What do you dislike?

140 characters aren't the easiest to work with. Create a card or add an image and you get fewer characters. Sometimes the metrics can be a bit misleading, but overall they are nice to have.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The bigger the budget, the better. Speak to Twitter directly and get top-notch support. The targeting dashboard is robust, so no who you want to target. Swap out messaging and images every few days to prevent your campaign from hitting a plateau.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are reaching outside of our follower base to attract new customers. We're effectively targeting the people we want and informing them about our products and services at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional advertising. We're creating brand advocates.

"Twitter's Ad Platform Is New But Full of Potential"

What do you like best?

This platform is new but growing quite fast in popularity because of how different its targeting capabilities are. Being able to target followers of individuals lets you target some very niche industries that other ad platforms don't allow. We've been better able to target individuals for specific events, from specific companies and more using this platform. We see this is a very effective B2B platform - better than Linked In. The reporting platform is also pretty robust, however there could be additional data metrics on impressions, interest groups and followers - but we feel this will come as the platform grows.

What do you dislike?

We found overall, the cost is a little higher than other platforms we've tried, and when taken into consideration is limited targeting capabilities this is its major drawback. On the initial launch the geo-targeting was very limited for Canada (and still is only down to the city level), which makes postal code targeting or targeting people around a business difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The user targeting is likely the most powerful feature available, and its a fantastic way to target competitors and businesses. We've found that targeting in this way lets you hit very niche market segments in more effectively than Linked In ads.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've had a major issue targeting B2B with digital advertising platforms, Aside from Google Adwords Search its a tough market to crack. Twitter ads did a great job of bridging this gap for our agency. This platform is also very effective at allow advertisers to target fans and followers of our competition. We're using it more and more!

"Platform and Performance is a little below average"

What do you like best?

Setting up a campaign is easy - follow the prompts and hit "play". Keyword and handle targeting works well and seems to make the most sense and be the most accurate.

What do you dislike?

Compared to other social platforms (Facebook in particular), Twitter doesn't provide the same level of reporting. With FB, there is so much data to leverage both when setting up a campaign, as well as when reviewing performance. Twitter doesn't have that. The platform is also not as functional for reviewing performance as it could be - I always export the data and analyze in excel or a BI tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand the reality that Twitter will be able to provide you. For our business, it's not a platform that is going to increase conversions, but it does provide us with brand awareness when used correctly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter Ads provides us with relatively inexpensive mobile traffic, both to our Twitter account to increase followers, and to our site. This traffic, once on site, does not convert as well as other mobile placements.

"Twitter isn't as effective as it was a few years ago."

What do you like best?

Twitter ads is a relatively easy platform to use, but it's not something I would recommend over other social media advertising.

What do you dislike?

Twitter is definitely not as effective as it was a few years ago. It seems like everyone was on Twitter 5 years ago, and now, it's moved on to Facebook and Instagram. I wouldn't much rather go to Facebook advertising than Twitter Ads. I've run multiple ads on Twitter and they haven't brought in as many conversions as other platforms.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend testing Twitter Ads simultaneously with Facebook Ads. See what works better for you and go from there!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter Ads has definitely increased brand awareness and follower growth, however no conversions have come from it unfortunately.

"Good ad platform is you can figure out the targeting"

What do you like best?

I like how Twitter gives you the different types of impressions. The lead generation card is very useful. Having the in stream actions are very useful as people can subscribe to your email, or request a demo without leaving Twitter.

What do you dislike?

It is much harder to target than Facebook and LinkedIn. Twitter obviously has less explicit information and they have not done a great job at generating implicit information. Would love it if I could target people who tweet about these topics, but didn't use hashtags. I also with that I could automatically import the leads in Salesforce. Doing it by hand is fine with small numbers, but if we ever hit scale it would get out of hand very quickly. There might be a SF integration that we just haven't found.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out. It is not that expensive, and see if the conversions you generate match what you need. For us, we found that the conversions we not a great fit, but that is for our specific business. It is easy enough, and cheap enough that I believe every business should at least try out Twitter ads. See if you get a good ROI, and optimize from there. You already have a company Twitter account, or at least you should, so just bit the bullet and check out Twitter ads.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lead generation. We are looking for people who have an interest in our product on Twitter.

"Great platform, not so great results."

What do you like best?

We have used Twitter ads a few different times, both to promote Tweets and to gain followers. The campaign creation and management tool is clean, efficient, and powerful. The reporting tools allow you to then focus your budget on the content that is generating the most value, and cut spend on those with limited results.

What do you dislike?

While we spent considerable time targeting the right groups on Twitter, the followers we were gaining were not high quality. Instead, they were loosely affiliated with our target group. I would only recommend promoting content, not targeting for followers. That ad money was essentially wasted.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't worry if your targeting a small audience with your ads. We expanded our targeting because Twitter recommended doing so. The result was a bunch of non-relevant followers and retweets, and waisted ad money. Better to stay focused and pay a bit more for each online engagement you are looking for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Broader online advertising base

"A frustrating experience compared to Facebook"

What do you like best?

The interface to set up a campaign is clean and straightforward, and you do have the ability to target followers of specific users to generate a target audience that fits with what you're going after.

What do you dislike?

The biggest gripe with Twitter Ads is that you get very little return on investment. If you want to make sure you're not getting a bunch of bot-like accounts following you during a followers campaign, for example, you will end up spending a lot of money for a limited number of follows. If you want to get the best bang for your buck, however, chances are a lot of bot-like accounts will end up following your account. Compared to Facebook, which gives you the ability to target specific audiences and reach real people with an excellent return on investment, Twitter Ads has a lot of work to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking to grow your followers, keep in mind that you will have to spend A LOT to ensure that real people fitting your target audience end up following. There's a limited return unless you disregard things like location, in which case your numbers will go up, but likely because a lot of bots are following you. Twitter does not do a good job of differentiating real and fake people and cleaning up accounts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest benefit has been targeting those who follow accounts that would be considered similar to ours from an interest standpoint. Although not as effective as Facebook's targeting, it's better than nothing, I suppose.

"Basic platform that lacks the depth of the Facebook ads platform"

What do you like best?

Twitter ads is very user-friendly (in many respects more user-friendly than competitors). It is very easy to select a goal, key targets and to launch a campaign in less than 15 minutes.

What do you dislike?

Twitter ads will always be compared to its main competitors, mainly Facebook. As a result, I believe Twitter Ads lacks the depth of options that Facebook provides, both from the perspective of the formats that are available and the targeting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Twitter ads is great to run basic campaigns on Twitter (engagement, reach, gain followers).

Setting up your account at first can be tricky if you don't have an IO in place as Twitter will put a limit on your credit card without telling you, which can limit your daily spend. I strongly encourage calling them to have this lift off when you launch a campaign.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Twitter ads to solve a variety of problems but the main goals were to either increase reach or engagement for my clients.

"Review of Twitter Ads"

What do you like best?

Twitter Ads are quick and easy to get published on the mobile app. Twitter provides the benefit of selecting a target market based on geographic location, and makes it easy to advertise to a geographic target market.

What do you dislike?

Due to the nature of the app, twitter advertisements often get scrolled by and you can not adjust the size and impact of an advertising tweet. It is also difficult to measure the return on twitter advertisements based on region.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems you are solving are being able to expand advertising efforts and focus on social media. With increasing technology and social media use, many companies are turning towards a social media marketing platform. Twitter is one of the most recognized forms of social media along with Facebook and Instagram, and you are able to reach a huge audience by advertising on their mobile app.

"A good experience but much improvement needed"

What do you like best?

Twitter is one of the most popular social media channels so advertising on it is a no-brainer. There are options to narrow down the audience and what I like best are the varying tweet options, including how you want it to look and deciding buttons.

What do you dislike?

Due to how big Twitter is, you'd expect the layout and journey to be a lot better. It is quite tedious to set up a campaign simply because there's not a lot of selection on breaking down the audience. It's like you're blanket marketing and having to narrow down your audience is difficult.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter allows us to advertise on one of the biggest social media platforms so the benefit is that we can target a lot of our customers and leads.

"Quick & Effective, but Sometimes Unpredictable"

What do you like best?

As an analyst, I love having the option to export all of the data quickly and easily so that I can manipulate it and add in my custom calculations/metrics that are our client's KPIs for success. Additionally, it's great to be able to adjust date ranges as well as drill down into specific campaigns/ad sets so that a campaign or a particular activation can be judged more accurately. Often, it's important that I'm able to break out individual campaigns rather than just aggregating everything up.

What do you dislike?

While the point and click interface is fairly friendly and easy to understand and exports are very quick for raw data, reporting fields over the past year or so have changed frequently. For instance, media views/media engagements and favorites/likes have changed multiple times without any advanced notification from Twitter, making integrating exports directly into my own workbooks a laborious task several times per year.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quite often, we're using spend metrics and engagement metrics to measure the effectiveness and cost efficiency of an advertising campaign across multiple clients for whom we have the social business. Not only are we able to do this on a campaign level across an entire year, but also week to week, or even creative to creative. From this, we can advise the client on where we're succeeding, what types of targeting are most effective, and where we should go next to get the most out of our social investment.

"As social advertising platforms go... meh"

What do you like best?

I like that it's pretty easy to get a promoted tweet going. That's about it.

What do you dislike?

When you're trying to create a campaign, it's too complicated. I also think Twitter has done a terrible job at delivering ads in a way that is effective for the advertiser--I've spent far too much and got far too little positive results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I actually don't recommend using Twitter ads at all. You're much better off finding an influencer on Twitter and doing a paid campaign with them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Advertising to Twitter users.

What do you like best?

Easy and intuitive to use, Twitter is one of the best advertising platforms for a reason. We were able to broaden our reach to the right audiences quickly and easily, and really boost our marketing reach in a very short timeframe.

Always wish we could get it done cheaper!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best of the best for a reason.

"Quite Frustrating"

What do you like best?

I find that the ads really do tailor personally to you. For example if it was something I was looking at that day, I would then see it pop up on my twitter feed with promotions and discount.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how it's an extra thing you now have to scroll through. Personally, i follow a lot of accounts so it takes more time out of my day to scroll through my feeds.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business problems, not so much. It hasn't done a whole lot for me. But i do realize that the adds take up more memory and cache space, causing my phone to be slower.

"Intuitive but clunky "

What do you like best?

The one stop set up for campaigns, targeting and ad copy/tweets. The set up is really easy, but can take some getting used to if you're familiar with Facebook advertising.

What do you dislike?

The biggest challenge is qaing URLs and ad copy in the creatives tab. You have to go into each campaign to QA, which can take some time. Additionally the image sizes are not standard and require additional work to fit into the Twitter specs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're trying to reach a new audience and have the ability on Twitter. There's no age target, which is big, but through other targeting, we can hopefully reach that audience and promote engagement.

"Mixed Results"

What do you like best?

It's fairly easy to create new ads. Analytics dashboard works well and makes it easy to show non-users how your campaigns are performing at a glance.

What do you dislike?

Our conversion rate was fairly low for the ads we did push out, it seemed like we would continuously drop in CTR until we changed the ad creative. Not sure if that is an algorithmic thing or not.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Change your ad creative regularly. This was one of the few things that we noticed helped in driving our CTR & impressions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Driving site traffic and on-site conversions. We saw very mixed results, partially due to our audience, and partially due to the platform.

"Positive Experience"

What do you like best?

The targeting capabilities. With Twitter Ads, you have the option to include 'Event' and 'TV' targeting, which enables you to get very granular in who you're reaching with your ads.

What do you dislike?

I wish the Audience Insights enabled you to search for users with particular interest, allowing you to better understand your target consumer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand that although Twitter does not have all the capabilities of Facebook quite yet, they are heading in that direction and are much easier to collaborate with as partners.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With these ads, we are able to increase the VCR on our videos - something we've struggled with on other platforms.

"Best tool to reach the target audience and research"

What do you like best?

The most amazing feature of twitter ads is, whether the user is signed up on the social network or not, he can read Tweets. This actually works as a goldmine because this was my message reaches the audience at the right time. With in-depth segmentation and targeting, you can be sure that you’ll be getting the right message across to the right people at just the right time.

What do you dislike?

The most frequently faced problem by my team is 'spammers'. While Twitter has improved its security measures to detect bots and spammers before they become a problem, spam still exists on Twitter. Twitter enables users to flag what they deem to be spammers. Although it's easy to remove, but it's still a nuisance faced on everyday basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is indeed the best solution to reach your TG without much effort. Hash tags and trends work well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Twitter helps me a lot with targeting. Users are always checking out what topics are trending on twitter. With Promoted Trends, I often develop trends or hash tags and stir some buzz with engaging conversation, all while encouraging traffic to your company's Twitter page. Twitter is doing well for me and my team.

"Paid ads on Social - mixed effects"

What do you like best?

The targeting on the platform has grown quite a bit, but still has obvious limitations

What do you dislike?

People aren't looking to click off of twitter for an ad, so the platform itself is of limited value

"Running ads campaigns for my company and others"

What do you like best?

I like the analytics portion of Twitter Ads as you are running a campaign. You can gain a holistic view of what is happening by audience, area, etc. throughout the life of the campaign. Additionally, it is easy to setup a campaign in no time.

What do you dislike?

There are inconsistent ways to add different settings with campaigns across the different types of campaigns. There are also bugs with campaign displays and settings. Additionally, there are quite a few bugs that need fixed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that you can do what you need within the ads campaign. Also make sure that you understand the targeting criteria and how that works. Overall, it has really solid results and usability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing customized campaigns for different groups and customers. Able to define specific targeting dependent on each use case.

"Expensive "

What do you like best?

The ability to target specific demographics, such as younger users.

What do you dislike?

We're a non-profit and used many paid ads during election year. We used Twitter ads only in the ad, and only for a short time in order to meet specific demographics. However, FB ads proved to be more cost-efficient. All in all, the cost is too high for us to continue using at this moment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Voter registration is our goal. The benefit of using Twitter over FB, is that the audience is younger and that is our key demographic.

"Twitter Ads Review"

What do you like best?

Twitter ads provides a slightly different audience demographic than something like Facebook or Pinterest (tends to be older, more affluent, etc).

What do you dislike?

Extremely counter-intuitive ad platform (really difficult to work in), and audiences tend to be small & low performing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Only use it if you absolutely have a need to reach its users on this platform specifically - if you just need a social tool, go with Facebook or one of the big dogs. Not worth it otherwise - poor performance, poor platform capabilities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Twitter to attempt to reach new users in a different environment. Facebook is our bread and butter; however, Twitter allows us to hit users in a unique environment where they're definitely behaving differently than users on Facebook or other platforms.

"Easy to use and even easier to loose track of much money"

What do you like best?

I can target people who have used a specific word or hashtag in their Twitter update (or people who have interacted with tweets containing those words) in the last seven days.

What do you dislike?

Unless your exact target audience is most active on Twitter, you may get an increase of spam bots following you. Twitter’s targeting features also aren’t as extensive as Facebook’s, making it more difficult to show your ads to the right people.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Twitter’s CTR rates are higher than Facebook’s. Twitter Ads are also more expensive than Facebook Ads.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keyword targeting is a remarkably helpful and easier to go after specific people on Twitter.

"Twitter Cards integration with newsletters"

What do you like best?

I've used this product for setting up Twitter Cards which allow Twitter users to automatically submit their email to a third-party list. It was easy to set-up on Twitter's end although the process was a little harder because of the software that was receiving the data from Twitter.

What do you dislike?

The subdomain to get to Twitter Ads is a bit confusing, especially if you're dealing with multiple accounts - organization vs user accounts, but this is a fairly trivial dislike.

Better integration with third-party services would be nice too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to use Twitter Cards, there's nothing else you can use aside from Twitter Ads and the process is not too bad.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting our Twitter audience to submit a form without having to fill out a form.

"Twitter Ads are just "good""

What do you like best?

I like that you can customize how you're going to target you ad.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the way Twitter makes you on "choose" the ad you'd like to promote. Sometimes I have to create one, sometimes my post doesn't show up, etc.

We solve event registrations on Twitter ads. We want to drive users to register for our events.

"Super easy for social media managers"

What do you like best?

It's extremely quick and easy to set up, even for someone who's never set up any type of advertising campaign. A Twitter ads campaign was my first foray into paid social, or any type of online advertising. And I think it only took me 15 minutes to set up initially, spending another 10 minutes or so every day the campaign ran to look at results and try to further optimize the campaign.

I also got great results in terms of the quality and value of followers we received from the promoted accounts campaign. They were exactly the type of audience we were trying to reach, to the point that some of the accounts were also on a list of people we were interested in reaching out to.

What do you dislike?

I can't really think of anything I disliked, though I ran the campaign over a year ago, so my memory of the dashboard isn't perfect anymore.

I think I remember downloading the report spreadsheet, and it including a lot of data that wasn't really necessary for us to look at, given our goals and how we ran the campaign. It would have been nice to be able to customize what metrics we were downloading in the report. But there may have been a way to do that that I didn't see, since I was new to the dashboard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Shortly after signing up, you'll probably get an email from a Twitter ads account rep offering help and advice on running your campaign. Definitely take them up on that. Our account rep really helped me understand the platform better and gave me a lot of optimization tips that improved the ad's performance almost immediately.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our goal for Twitter ads was to try to earn followers that better fit into our buyer personas. We targeted the ad based on other accounts they followed, choosing accounts of industry blogs and publications, competitors, and influencers.
