What We Learned

Monday: Reddit has announced two new ad formats for marketers looking to reach shoppers when and where they’re ready to buy: Contextual Keyword Targeting and Product Ads.

Tuesday: A nano influencer is a creator with 1,000 to 10,000 followers that will run you about $10 to $100 per sponsored post. They’ve got highly engaged, niche audiences, they’re usually more open to working for free products or services, and they’re well trusted by their communities.

Wednesday: If you’re not taking your Instagram Stories strategy seriously, you might want to reconsider. Recent research has found that users pay closer attention to content that can be seen only for a limited time.

Thursday: Contextual advertising is the strategy of buying ad placements based on the context of your content—rather than personal data. In a privacy-oriented digital world, it’s regaining popularity.
