It’s been four years since Yahoo bought Tumblr and in that time, blogging platforms have grown tremendously.
What is Tumblr?
Tumblr is a microblogging platform that allows users to share just about anything via their personal Tumblelog. You can quickly and easily post whatever you want – text, photos, videos, music, quotes, and links, from wherever you want – your web browser, phone, desktop computer, or email. The service prides itself on its ease of use, as well as the ability to customize everything including the colors of your Tumblelog and the HTML code of your Tumblr theme.
Who uses Tumblr?
Tumblr people are categorized by their retro-hipster vibes and their ability to showcase blog content through images, videos and words. Content on Tumblr is quirky and strange and heavily embodies the persona of an out-of-the-ordinary millennial. Due to its individualistic nature, Tumblr people are also categorized as ‘regular individuals’ and rarely as companies or businesses. An individual that owns a company may have a Tumblr page but it is highly unlikely that the company would have a Tumblr page.
In total, there are around 357 million registered blogs on Tumblr and users spend a whopping 3 hours per day on the site. This is exponentially higher than various other social media platforms including Snapchat, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
Tumblr or WordPress?
Some businesses choose to use Tumblr over WordPress to appeal to their young and fun audience. Take Denny’s for example – they’re famous for their American, greasy, feel-good, late-night, partially hungover food. Here’s an example of their Tumblr post that works well in line with their business and aims to target their audience.
If your audience is under thirty and your service or product is very visual and you’re strapped for time then Tumblr is the way to go, if your audience is older and you want to do more than blog (and more with your blog) then use WordPress.
Benefits of Tumblr
Since Tumblr is a form of a micro-blog, most content is easy to share and visually appealing. These aspects have made Tumblr more of a social platform that incorporates blogging. Also, Tumbelogs are likely to appeal to a wider audience, as some will prefer the assortment of photos, video files, and links that a traditional blog may be lacking. Tumblr’s API allows Tumblelogs to be extensively modified; users can delete all the basic formatting and start from scratch to design the look, feel and layout. If you can imagine it, chances are you can do it with Tumblr. The outcome for bloggers is huge; connect more deeply with your readers, in less time, and on your customized, easy to use microblog.
Tumblr Photos and Videos
Since 2013, photos and videos on Tumblr have become a huge success due to their fairly visually appealing nature. Many Tumblr users are attracted to the shareable photography and videos found on Tumblr. Even design projects and ideas for tattoos are popular on Tumblr due to the professional photos and visual content found on Tumblr. Some examples of Tumblr posts that include excellent imagery include motivational quotes, images of scenery and animal videos in the form of gifs.
Cabana: The New App by Tumblr
This year, Tumblr announced they will be launching a new app called Cabana. This app allows users to watch videos with their friends simultaneously. After downloading the app, users can add their friends to an existing “room” or create a new one and add up to six friends. Then, they are able to watch any video on YouTube while on a video chat in the same room. This app is great for group entertainment! However, there are many ways to group video call already including through Messenger on Facebook. Cabana will have some tough competition!

Images rock on social media and posts that contain images are way more likely than plain text or link posts to help you get more likes comments and shares.
Our design partner Anne Dunnett of Inklings Design and Everyday haiku recently created these AMAZING branded social media image templates for us – we can easily add text to them and post on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (you might have noticed them in our posts!). We would like to share them with you. Read on to learn the story of this amazing idea (in Anne’s words) and to get an extra special offer.
Branded Social Media Templates
As an entrepreneur, I know how challenging it is to keep up with changes in the industry. Businesses evolve, grow and transform and I’m not the only one that feels this way. I know many people who have two businesses or more and are sometimes juggling them and figuring out how they fit together. A transformation is in the works as my graphic design business evolves and changes.
My second business is Everyday haiku which is a blend of haiku poetry and design. I’ve created an on-line course that comes with haiku designs where students can add their own haiku poem into the design and have a little piece of art to post on social media. I recently put on a workshop and one of the attendees loved these “template designs” so much that she wanted to use them to promote her own business on social media. I explained to her that the haiku designs are not intended or meant for that usage and they are a big part of the Everyday Haiku brand. As a result of this, I wanted to fill a need with a fantastic idea to help people like her who are looking for beautiful and inspirational designs so that they can easily add quotes and content. The basic templates have a polished and professional look and feel so that it will attract more followers and get people engaged.
Then, I decided to take it one step further and offer templates that are designed to match your brand. By adding your logo and your brand colours, I will provide you with a cohesive and professional representation of your business. See the offer below with design samples and more information.
AND……. I’m in the process of creating an exciting social media haiku design offer!
For those of you who are at a loss of what to say and tired of coming up with content, this will make content creation super easy! It will include branded haiku and designs for your business that you can post on an ongoing basis. The haiku will be written just for you and in-line with your specific market and themed by topics that are in the moment and relevant to your business. It will get people curious and start conversations about you and your offers.
Facebook has become a major alternative to Google when it comes to promoting your business online and driving traffic to your site. As of this week, it boasts a massive 2 billion users. Not only can your Facebook page help bring tons of traffic to your website but the traffic it brings is more targeted, visitors are more likely to visit more pages and they will stay longer. This, combined with the fact that having a Facebook page can help you stay engaged with existing and new audiences, means that Facebook might be a major component of your digital marketing mix if it isn’t already (especially if your product is consumer related!) However, the challenge then becomes how to get more likes on Facebook.
Once you have created a Facebook Page for your organization the challenge becomes attracting the right audience and getting people to “like” and interact with your page. Here are a few tips that will help you get more page likes on Facebook.
Tips to Get More Likes on Facebook
1. Content – there is a popular saying, “content is king” and it really is the key to growing your following. Did you know that only 1-3% of your followers ever see your organic page posts? Shout out to Mari Smith for mentioning that stat at Call to Action Conference this week.
If your content adds value (by that I mean that it grabs people’s interest or tells your audience something they didn’t already know) and stimulates likes, comments and shares, current followers will be more engaged and more new followers will come. Images and videos have the most engagement and using tools such as Canva (the online design tool) are great ways to enhance your visuals. So, take the time to post quality content.
2. Website widget – add a Facebook widget to your website so that people can click from there to like your page. Providing social media links on your website is a great way to increase engagement in the digital space- especially on Facebook. When people visit your website, they may never return but if they visit your site then follow a link to like your Facebook page, you’re more likely to have an ongoing connection with them. That’s why it’s so important to have widgets on your website to form a digital connection.
3. Invite friends – use the ‘suggest to a friend link’ to find and send invites to friends but be selective and only invite Facebook friends who might actually be interested in your product or service. Also, adding a link to your Facebook Page URL to your email signature will drive more people to your page.
4. Create a unique username for your Facebook page URL like ours-http://www.facebook.com/outsmarts -which is short and sweet and branded. This will help make your page easily accessible to potential customers and clients. To do this, go to your page click on the ‘about’ section on the left and then click on ‘Create Page @username’
5. Promote your page – when you are networking both online and off, tell people about your page. Even having your social media usernames (or at least images of the platforms you are active on) easily visible on your business cards is very beneficial! If you use Twitter or other social networks, link and tell your followers in those forums too. Run a photo contest on your page to get more people engaged.
6. Update regularly – update your Facebook page regularly (refer to tip #1 when doing so!). You should update at least once a day but not so frequently that your posts become intrusive and annoying.
7. Place an ad – Facebook ads are highly targeted. Use ‘Promote Your Page’ ads to get more followers on your page by advertising to people in your target area who might be interested. You might be surprised as to how many new “likes” this will generate. You can also boost your posts so that more people see and like your updates. The more that people do this, the more your posts will show up on their timelines.
8. Avoid overselling – it is not good Facebook etiquette to simply use your page for promotional purposes. Use the 20/80 rule and ensure that you only promote your company, products or services 20% of the time (focus the rest of your posts on adding value and building loyalty with your followers).
9. Make your Page Stand Out- humans are visual creatures so make sure to use a great cover image that grabs people’s attention. It could even encourage people to click on the link below. And be sure to use the customizable call to action buttons. Having a call to action button makes your services and products easily accessible to the public. Another way to stand out is to include posts that target your specific audience- relating back to tip #1 (content is king!)
10. Promote your Page – make sure your Facebook Page URL is highlighted on all direct marketing and traditional advertising vehicles, add “Like on Facebook” information to letters, packaging and shipping materials to spread the word in other media. If you have a physical location, you could have a tablet or iPad next to checkout encouraging people to like your page.
11. Engagement is Essential – even though page likes are an excellent indicator of your success on Facebook, it is important to remember that engagement is even more vital. Are people commenting, sharing or actually liking every individual post? Remember to include great images, excellent content and use all the tips mentioned above to increase engagement on Facebook.
Google’s AdWords platform is a great way to advertise online. It allows you to pay to show up on the first page of Google for search terms that your targeted audience might use to look for products or services online. You can choose which geographical area you want your ads to show up in and you choose how much or how little (there is no minimum) you would like to spend. It’s a great way to generate leads and to drive sales and your campaigns are highly measurable (especially if you link to Google Analytics).
At Out-Smarts we’ve been running AdWords campaigns for clients for over a decade. Over the years we’ve learned a few things that are key to PPC success. Here are 5 Things You Don’t Know About Google AdWords But Should to make the most of your AdWords investment.
The Landing Page is Key To AdWords Success
AdWords does a great job of driving traffic to your website but that’s only half the story. For your Ads to convert, the page people land on your website has to:
Have a relevant headline that relates to the words you used in your ads and the keywords in your AdWords campaigns
It should have short, sweet, original text that tells visitors about the benefits of your product or service (from their perspective, not yours!) and how it solves their problem or makes their lives/jobs better.
It should have a clear call to action telling visitors what to do next i.e. order now, request a free quote
The content on your page is key – if the content doesn’t line up with the context of your ads your Quality Score will be impacted and your ads are less likely to show up. You can even risk having your account being suspended, your ads won’t run.
Be particularly careful with landing pages that have a before and after image or that link to testimonials – in fact you are probably best to avoid using these.
Take Advantage of Free Google AdWords
Did you know that you can enjoy Google AdWords free of charge? This option is only available to non-profit organisations. It allows these groups to access initially $10,000 US n free advertising and if you outgrow that you can sign up for the Grantspro Program which raises this to $40,000 USD per month. To take advantage of this you have to register and meet certain criteria. It’s available in most countries around the world and you must have a valid charity status. To begin this process sign up for Google for Non Profits. This means registering with TechSoup (Canada) or in the US.
There are Two Flavors of AdWords.
There’s full blown Google Adwords and Google Express. They are both really similar but Adwords Express is designed to make it easy for you to set up your ads. Managing your ads easy is because you don’t have to – it’s all automated.
If you don’t have a website then Google Adwords Express is the way to go as it allows you to advertise your Google+ page on Google and Google Maps. It might also be the right solution if you have a small budget, want to spread a wide and targeted net and you don’t have a clue about (or don’t want to learn how) to manage your bids. But beware, with Express Google decides the keywords your ads show up for and you have no insight into how much bids cost.
AdWords give you capabilities beyond the basic Extended Text Ads and you should use them where appropriate as they help increase your Click Through rate to make your ads way more effective.
Ad extensions add extra information to your ads. This is information your business or offering. Such as:
Sitelink Extensions – shows links to specific pages on your site below the ad
Callout Extensions – gives more detailed info about your business as part of your ad
Structured Snippet Extensions – describe features of a specific product in your add
Call Extensions – add phone numbers to your ads, when people click they initiate a call to your company (particularly good if you have a towing company or similar!)
Message Extensions – similar to call extensions, in this case when people click it initiates a text message
Location Extensions – shows location and address information in your ads
Affiliate Extensions – shows the retail chains where people can buy your products in your ads (UK and US only)
Price Extensions – shows prices for different products or services
App Extentions – links to mobile apps
Review Extensions – showcase rave reviews of your product in your ads
Spend Time In Analytics to Improve Your AdWords Success
Google Analytics is key to AdWords success. We find that we spend almost as much time in Analytics measuring Ad performance as we do in AdWords. It is really important to link your AdWords and Analytics account right after you set up your ads but before you launch your campaigns. Next, head over to your Analytics Admin Panel and set up your goals. Your goals will reflect what it is you want people to do on the landing page once they have clicked through on your ad. These can include:
Destination URLs (i.e. thank you for your order),
Duration goals (when people spend a certain amount of time on your site).
Events – When an event on your site is triggered i.e. someone watches a video or clicks to share your content on social media
Pages Per Session – When a visitor visits a specified number of pages
Once these are set up you can then determine if your AdWords traffic is converting once it reaches your site. You will also be able to see which of your Campaigns, AdGroups and Keywords are converting as well as understanding the actual search queries people are using that result in click throughs.
Google AdWords is one of the best ways to drive targeted traffic to your website. It offers a robust platform with lots of options to help you hone your campaigns. Optimizing your landing page for conversions, taking advantage of Google Grants, using Analytics and adding ad extensions are just of few of the tactics you can use to make the most of your pay per click campaigns.
Out-Smarts provides AdWords set up and maintenance services. If you are considering your pay per click options we would love to hear from you.
Advertising on Facebook is becoming more and more sophisticated to the point that you now have many different options to help you build your audience, get followers attention and drive traffic to your website.
If your goal from advertising on Facebook is to drive website traffic and conversions, then installing and taking advantage of Facebook Pixel is a must.
What is Facebook Pixel
The Facebook Pixel is a piece of code that you install on your website. It allows you to more effectively measure the performance of your ad campaigns and it helps you determine exactly who sees your ads.
The features and benefits of Facebook Pixel include:
Ability to track customers across devices
More effective targeting
Create custom audiences for retargeting
Uncover niche segments that are similar to your current ones
Dynamic remarketing of ads – people who visit your site will see your ads on Facebook
Getting started with Facebook Pixel
To install Facebook Pixel, go to the link below to create your Facebook Pixel.
There are 2 types of code you have to install on your site to complete this process.
The first is the pixel base code that goes on all of your pages.
The second is the event code which you place on certain pages that you want to track specifically.
Creating Your Facebook Pixel
Facebook is going to step you through a process to set up your pixel and to get the codes for your site.
Installing Facebook Base Pixel on Your Website
The next step is to choose which method you want to use to install the Pixel on your site:
1. Using a tag manager 2. Copy and paste the code
In order for your Pixel to work, you must copy and paste the code into your website. This cookie allows your site to send information back to Facebook and measures visits and where people go on your site.
We prefer to copy and paste the code into the website rather than using a tag manager because that way you have more control over things that can go wrong but if you are not familiar with the code of your site you might want to go with the first option. There are also several WordPress plugins that facilitate this.
Facebook generates a handy dandy Facebook Pixel ID and instructions to send to your webmaster. The code has to go on every page of your site for it to work properly. The best way to do this is to install it in your header file somewhere between the <header> and </header> and before the <body> tag.
Pixel Events Code
The Facebook Pixel events code tracks specific actions on your pages. The first thing you need to think about is your website’s call to action – what is it that you want people to do on your site? There are 3 options in the setup process.
Basic – lets you track events and optimize for conversions based on people who take action on your site.
Recommended – includes all of the above along with basic parameters providing additional data and measurement parameters.
Advanced – adds an extra layer to include product level granularity (i.e product type, style).
Here are the standard Facebook Pixel options:
Add to basket
Add to wishlist
Add payment info Make purchase
Choose the most appropriate of these depending on your goals for website traffic, conversions and what it is you want to track.
Once these pieces of code have been installed on your site you will get a Facebook notification.
You can check to see if your Pixel is working by going to your Facebook Ads Manager. There you will notice a new Pixel tab.
Click on it to see your Pixel Fires (total amount of pixel activity in the date range).
To troubleshoot or validate your Pixel set up, there’s a useful Chrome add-on called Facebook Pixel Helper.
Facebook Pixel Next Steps
Now that you’re all set up with Pixel, it’s time to create audiences and track conversions.
This allows you to target your Facebook ads to audiences of people who have visited your website and lets you remarket to them.
From your Facebook Ads Manager click on Pixel then on the ‘Create Audience’ button. Audience options include:
• Anyone who visits your site • People who visit specific pages • People who visit specific pages but not others • People who have visited in a certain amount of time • Or, you can create your own custom combo.
Decide which option best fits your needs, name your audience and that’s it. You are ready to create your first remarketing ad on Facebook but first, you have to wait till your custom audience is big enough.
From your Facebook Ads Manager, click on Pixel then again on the ‘Create Conversion’ button.
This time you have 2 options:
Track conversions with standard events – use this if you simply want to track and optimize conversions and build your audience.
Track custom conversions – use this if you can’t use standard events on your site or if you want to split conversions on your site.

Mastering Social Media to Grow Your Small Business
Just because you know what social media is, does not mean that you necessarily understand how to use it to grow and develop your business. This workshop focuses on understanding social media, what is it and how it’s connecting people.
Learn how/if social media should be an important part of your marketing strategy.
Understand what opportunities are available for you to leverage social media for business growth and prospecting.
This seminar is hosted at Small Business BC in Vancouver and delivered to other locations via live webinar. All webinar participants will also receive access to a recording for seven days after the live session.
Okay, so you’ve developed a presence on Facebook for your business and want to start using Facebook Ads, but where do you start? How do you advertise on Facebook? When you start delving into Facebook’s advert guides, it can all feel a bit confusing, but don’t fret! We are here to help guide you through the process. Since our last post about how to advertise on Facebook, their Adverts are still a very strong tool, but now with more options. Follow these tips and you will be up and be advertising on Facebook in no time.
Facebook Reach / Audience
Before we begin, let’s take a look at Facebook’s stats, which are quite impressive. Back in April of 2012, Facebook bought Instagram and as a result, it has opened up your reach to a wider audience. This means you can link your business’ Instagram page to your Facebook Advert account and your ad will automatically show up on both platforms. Together Facebook and Instagram have almost 2 billion users visiting their sites each month. Even with competitors like Twitter, LinkedIn and Snapchat, Facebook is still number one when it comes to the number of users and potential consumers.
Do You Have a Facebook Business Page?
Before you start, make sure you have a Facebook Business Page as you cannot create ads via your personal Facebook page. While there are a number of ways to access Facebook ads, we recommend signing up for “Business Manager” and creating an “Adverts Manager” account to design and manage your ads. One of the benefits of doing it this way is that it allows businesses to give access to multiple people working together on an advert campaign and to easily see who is working on what. You can even assign your employees specific role-based access to adverts in order to control what they can see on your account. Once you’ve signed up for an Adverts Manager account it will walk you through each step.
Determine Your Marketing Objective
Every campaign starts with an objective so determine what yours is. Not sure? Facebook helps you determine your marketing objective by defining each type of objective they offer to help guide you to the outcome you want for your campaign. When you are setting up your ad campaign, you will see a list of all the possible objectives (see image below). You can click on each objective for its definition to help you decide which one is best for you and your business goals.
Some of these options offer what Facebook calls a “split test” which is also known as A/B Testing. It allows you to create two adverts to test and compare which one does better. Speaking of testing, it’s always a good idea to test two adverts at the same time. They should only have one to two different variables such as different images. Run them for 1-2 days and see which one does better.
Define Your Audience & Advert Placements
After you have identified your objective, the next step is to identify your target audience. Facebook makes it easy and steps you through the process. This is where you will spend most of your time defining whom it is you want to reach with your ads.
You choose your audience based on demographics, their behaviours, interests, and/or their contact information. There is a handy-dandy Audience definition (graph) to the right-hand side of the audience page (see the image below for an example). Use it to gauge how well you’ve defined your target audience. It will tell you the difference between how many people you are actually reaching versus how many people you could be reaching. To reach more of your targeted audience, increase your bids and budget.
You can also choose where your adverts will be placed or you can let Facebook automatically select this for you. We recommend that you select “Automatic Placements” when you first start out. The available placements are:
Facebook feeds (mobile and desktop)
Facebook right-hand column
Know Your Ad Budget
It’s important to know your budget before you start creating your advert campaign. Facebook has an ad for every budget making it affordable for everyone. It’s also important to know that there are two different types of budgets: Daily Budgets and Lifetime Budgets.
A Daily Budget is what you’re willing to pay for an ad per day. What you spend on the first and last days are prorated depending on the run time for those days. Meaning what time did the ad start on day one and what time did it end on the last day. Those two times may be different which is why the cost is prorated. The default minimum cost per day is still $1.00 for Daily Budgets. However, that doesn’t mean you’ll be charged $1.00 every day your campaign runs. For example, one day it might be $1.50 and another day $0.50 to maintain an average daily budget of $1.00. You can increase your daily budget to improve your ad’s exposure and reach. Remember, Facebook will always let you know the maximum amount you’ll spend during your campaign, so you don’t have to worry about going over budget.
A Lifetime Budget is what you’re willing to pay over the duration (lifetime) of an ad. Facebook tries to apply your budget evenly over the length of time the ad runs. The default minimum cost for Lifetime Budgets is $30.00, and like the Daily Budget, you can increase it to any amount you want which will improve your ad’s exposure and reach. Whether your ad runs for a week or a month, the cost will be at what you set it.
If you are just starting out, using the default Daily Budget option of $1.00 or even increasing it to $5.00 is more than enough to test the waters and see what works and what doesn’t. You can always change your budget once you’ve figured out which ad campaigns have worked the best for you.
Schedule Your Ad
Don’t forget to choose a schedule. There are two options:
Run my advert set continuously starting today.
Set a start and end date.
It’s up to you which option you choose, but if you’re someone who is a tad forgetful, then choose a specific time range. You can always stop the ad whenever you want. Remember the length of time your ad runs, also affects your budget. The longer it runs, the higher the cost. We recommend that you run an ad for no more than 3 weeks as Facebook ads tend to get stale by that point. You can always replace it with a new ad campaign with fresh images and text.
If you’re wondering how Facebook determines the cost of their ads, well it’s a bit complex and it doesn’t help that Facebook is constantly adjusting their formula. The exact cost associated with your advert being shown to someone is determined in Facebook’s Advert Auction. To learn more about it, read “Understanding how bidding and our ads auction work.”
Choose a Facebook Advert Format
Facebook adverts offer more format options than ever before. There are five to choose from: Carousel, single image, single video, slideshow, or Canvas. While most of these formats are self-explanatory, Carousel and Canvas are not.
Carousel lets you show up to 10 images and/or videos in a single ad. When people view your ad, they can scroll through the carousel cards. One of the benefits of Carousel is that it lets businesses tell a story through carousel cards or to showcase one long image that is divided between the carousel cards.
Canvas is Facebook’s newest format and it allows you to combine both images and video. You can tell a more in-depth story about your products and/or services. It is customizable and there is no one way to create a Canvas ad. If you choose to design a Canvas ad, it’s best to plan in advance what type of experience you want to create for the viewer and to have all your media materials ready in advance.
Your ad will appear on desktop, mobile news feed, feature phone, and Instagram, so it’s important to follow Facebook’s guidelines when designing your ad. You want to ensure it looks good everywhere it appears whether it’s on Facebook, Instagram or your mobile phone. Listed below are the recommended design guidelines to ensure your ad displays the way you want it to:
Recommended image size: 1,200 x 628 pixels
Image ratio: 1.9:1
Text: 90 characters
Headline: 25 characters
Link description: 30 characters
Your images should have minimal amounts of text. Facebook adverts that contain images with little to no text tend to cost less and have better delivery than adverts with image text. So, what count’s as text in your advert image? Logos, watermarks, and numbers.
For a comprehensive list of design guidelines for each marketing objective, read Facebook’s “Adverts Guide.”
It’s easy to use your own images. Just remember to size them properly beforehand otherwise, they won’t upload or they will be cropped. Don’t have any of your own photos? You can use the free stock images provided by Shutterstock via Facebook.
There are three areas on your advert to add text: Text, Headline, and Link Description. You don’t have to use all of them. What text you include is up to you, but it’s always a good idea to have a call to action. You can even use Facebook’s “Call to Action” button which offers a number of options such as contact us, learn more, download, signup, and etc.
You now have the option to add a Facebook Pixel to your ad campaigns. The Facebook Pixel is a piece of code that you install on your website. It allows you to more effectively measure the performance of your ad campaigns and it helps you determine exactly who sees your ads. Learn more about it in our blog post, “How do Facebook Pixels Work – Getting Set Up.”
While designing your ad, there is an advert preview pane to the right that updates every time you make a change. There is also a drop down menu that shows you what your ad looks like on other platforms or you can use the arrow buttons to scroll through. You can experiment with your ad’s format, images, videos and text until you are satisfied with the results. You can make your advert as fancy or simple as you like.
Tracking The Results of Your Facebook Ads
Okay, so you’ve created your ad, hit the “Place Your Order” button and it has been reviewed and accepted by Facebook. What’s next? Track and measure the performance of your advert campaign using Facebook’s adverts analytics tools. Information is presented in easy and simple visual reports. Your report includes topics such as reach, actions taken, details on the audience that you reached and more. Reports are also tailored based on which marketing objective you chose. Use these analytic tools to determine if your campaign was a success and met your objectives and goals. The data can also inform your future campaigns.
