New “Promoted Trend Spotlight” Ads Give Brands Valuable Space on the Twitter Explore Tab
For businesses small and large alike, Twitter has proved to be an invaluable method for engaging with new and existing customers on social media. News reports state that Twitter has begun testing Promoted Trend Spotlight advertisements, which secure brands a top spot on the site’s Explore tab. This brand-new promotion option includes a large visual banner that will contain either an image background or a GIF and will pop up at the very top of a user’s Explore tab during their first two visits of the day.
The first brand to experiment with this new, high-impact form of Twitter marketing is Disney. In the future, advertisers will have the option of purchasing Promoted Trend Spotlight spots as an addition to the Promoted Trends ad campaigns.
YouTube Debuts a “Copyright Match Tool” to Tackle the Issue of Copyright Infringement
One of the biggest struggles for businesses and brands that use YouTube as part of their marketing strategy is copyright infringement. For years, it’s been far too easy for users to upload videos without permission from the creator, but YouTube is now releasing a Copyright Match Tool to resolve this issue. Creators will be able to use the tool to scan their videos and detect others that share detailed similarities, specifically full re-uploads of the same content. For many businesses, this is a first step towards addressing the rampant copyright infringement issues on the video sharing platform.
