According to the company, with Twitter ads, advertisers can:
Select the best ad format for your campaign
No matter the objective, Twitter provides the best ad format to help businesses accomplish advertising goals. For example, advertisers can use the Website Card if they want to drive high-quality traffic to the website. Or, advertisers can leverage the Lead Generation Card to collect leads directly within a Tweet. Our suite of creative formats enables advertisers to captivate the target audience at all points of relevance throughout the day.
Reach your target audience
Over the last few months, Twitter has launched new targeting tools to help businesses connect with the right audience on Twitter. For example, event targeting allows advertisers to target users engaging with live moments on Twitter, such as the Emmys, Labor Day, or back to school. Combined with Twitter’s other powerful targeting types such as interest, keyword, username, device, location, and TV, advertisers can be sure they are targeting the right users, with the right message, at precisely the right time.
Track and analyze your results in real time
Twitter offers a number of analytics dashboards to help advertisers measure performance and optimize accordingly. For instance, the Tweet activity dashboard tracks organic Tweet activity — showing businesses what content resonates most with audience. Audience insights helps advertisers easily discover valuable insights about the followers, people who have engaged with the organic Tweets, ad campaigns, or tailored audience campaigns. And, advertisers can easily install conversion tracking to understand the full conversion impact of impressions and engagements from Promoted Tweets campaigns.
