Les publicités ciblées de FaceBook suscitent des inquiétudes Le réseau social FaceBook, parait-il tueur à la fois de MySpace, Copains d'Avant, Viadeo voire de Meetic selon son utilisation, commence à être critiqué de toute part ces dernières semaines. La faute à Facebook Ads, son récent programme de publicité, un peu trop ciblé selon les utilisateurs de Facebook. Facebook, une communauté en forte expansion Fort de plus d'une cinquantaine de millions d'inscrits, dont une grande majorité d'anglophones (USA, Canada, Angleterre et Australie), Facebook attire de part sa gratuité et ses différents avantages, qu'il s'agisse de se créer un réseau bien précis, de renouer avec d'anciens amis perdus (notamment des anciennes écoles), de trouver des contacts professionnels, ou bien encore de créer des groupes ciblés (voire capture ci-contre). Facebook a donc un avenir radieux, et il était temps pour ses créateurs d'en tirer profit grâce à la publicité ciblée, comme l'ont déjà si bien compris Google et MySpace. Un arrière-goût de beacon...

How Does Pay Per Click Really Work? Pay per click advertising (or PPC), in short, is an advertising model whereby advertisers only pay when their ad is clicked. Given the competitive state of web advertising, utilizing PPC ads is a skill few modern businesses can afford to ignore. As Google AdWords guru Perry Marshall routinely says, “never before in the history of advertising has it been possible to spend $5, write a couple of ads, and get instant access to over 100 million people in less than 10 minutes.” Share this post Whether you advertise on Google AdWords, Yahoo! (orangeacid) The basic, underlying principle of pay per click (and why it is so effective) is that you are advertising to people as they search for whatever it is that you have. The PPC advertiser is in precisely the opposite position. (Search Engine People Blog) Another key difference between PPC and other forms of advertising is that you only pay for results. The amount you pay when someone clicks your ad is known as your Cost Per Click (or CPC). (jared)
How to Set up a Facebook Custom iFrame Landing Page Application Editor's Note: We wrote a more up-to-date article about creating custom Facebook tabs here. Facebook recently announced that they would be discontinuing their support of the Static FBML app in favor of iframes. From a marketing perceptive this is actually some great news as FBML was pretty restrictive on what was and wasn't allowed within Facebook. I decided to investigate how much of pain is involved in setting up a custom tab on Facebook using an iframe. Below is a video with setup instructions step-by-step and a screenshot guide if you don't want to watch the video. The end result of this effort is this iframed application tab (for a contest that ends this Wednesday)! In order for this to work you must update your Facebook Fan Page to the newest settings. Set Up Your iFrame Page on Your Own Server For this to work you will need a webpage on your server that you will be iframing into your new custom tab. Head to Click on Set Up New App 1. 1. 1.
My Duck Duck Go reddit ad by the numbers My reddit ad (above) has yielded the highest ROI (by far) compared to the other ad platforms I've tried, which includes Adwords, Yahoo, Bing, Facebook, Myspace, and StumbleUpon. Of course your mileage will vary depending on your ad, product, target market, etc., but my basic message to you is you shouldn't overlook reddit self-serve advertising. My ad ran for 13 days, from 3/7 to 3/20. That's a CTR of 1.61%, or 6.49% per unique redditor. This is actually my second reddit ad. Here were my takeaways from the whole experience: Redditors actually try out your site. 3c per unique visitor is pretty good in and of itself, but it's all worthless unless they actually try out your site. My ad did better than others. Finally, I want to be clear that even without the successes of my follow-on reddit submissions, I still believe reddit ads have had the highest ROI (and still by far) for Duck Duck Go.

Mitchell has written and published over 300 articles relating to software development, marketing, business, social media and entrepreneurship. After watching Mark Zuckerberg's recent keynote at the Facebook F8 developers conference, it is clear that Facebook is looking to become the standard in social personalization for everything you do online. And the new social features and direction that they announced will undoubtedly have an impact on the broader world of e-commerce. For example, their new "Like" button is already visible on over 50,000 websites, and they're providing an API-based way to access what they're calling a user's "Open Graph," which is a list of everything he or she has "liked" across the entire web — music, books, restaurants, food and more.

The CAN-SPAM Act: A Compliance Guide for Business Do you use email in your business? The CAN-SPAM Act, a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have you stop emailing them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. Despite its name, the CAN-SPAM Act doesn’t apply just to bulk email. It covers all commercial messages, which the law defines as “any electronic mail message the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service,” including email that promotes content on commercial websites. The law makes no exception for business-to-business email. That means all email – for example, a message to former customers announcing a new product line – must comply with the law. Each separate email in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act is subject to penalties of up to $16,000, so non-compliance can be costly. Don’t use false or misleading header information.

Le site Facebook vend le profil de ses internautes aux publicitaires LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Par Cécile Ducourtieux et Laurence Girard La publicité en ligne est en train de franchir un nouveau palier dans l'exploitation de l'intimité des individus. Grâce à l'efficacité des outils de collecte et de mise en relations du Web, des formats émergent qui sont capables d'exploiter l'énorme quantité de données que les internautes livrent sur leurs blogs, leurs pages personnelles..., souvent sans précautions. Facebook, le réseau social actuellement le plus en vogue de l'Internet, a dévoilé, mardi 6 novembre, une offre publicitaire donnant aux annonceurs accès aux "profils" de ses 50 millions de membres et à la multitude de données privées (sexe, âge, préférences sexuelles, politiques, religieuses...) qu'ils contiennent. Le site, d'origine américaine, qui permet de créer gratuitement sa page personnelle, puis de multiplier les liens avec d'autres, encourage désormais les marques à créer leurs propres "profils" et à interagir avec ceux des internautes.
