Paid Social Commerce: Turning Buzz Into Biz

Friday, February 21, 2020

SEO, PPC & Digital Marketing Workshops @SMX

Does it feel like no matter how hard you work optimizing your site, your catalog, and your bidding strategies… you can’t seem to squeeze one more penny out of your ROAS? Your bottom of the funnel metrics are great; high click-through rates, excellent conversion rate and still… sales have leveled off or worse, started dropping year over year. Your problem isn’t converting qualified shoppers (you’re an ace at converting on purchase intent). What you need is more people shopping!

Fortunately, paid social media is an effective and inexpensive way to bring more customers to your business. In this workshop, social marketing expert Michelle Stinson Ross unlocks the secrets of expanding your customer base and increasing sales.

This Paid Social Commerce workshop will cover:

Auditing your current paid social efforts and identifying new advertising opportunities. You’ll understand how your current paid social may need to be adjusted for better results and where there may be new advertising opportunities.

Developing audience pools of potential customers based on SEO and PPC data. You’ll learn how to use keyword data, search volume information, and existing customer intelligence to create audience pools in social media.

Designing top of funnel paid social campaigns that drive qualified leads. There are several tactics involving audience layering and creative layering to serve the right content to the right people in the right moment.

Understanding how brand tactics contribute to overall return on total ad spend. Getting the most benefit from all of your paid efforts means that you understand the paid touchpoints all the way along the journey and can quantify how early customer journey engagement impacts the final return on ad spend.

At the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Set up and launch social campaigns that drive customers
  • Test and adjust targeting, placements, and creative for commerce objectives
  • Report on full funnel attribution and metrics
