What We Learned
Monday: In-game advertising (IGA) is a growing, affordable, and low-competition opportunity for brands who want to explore campaigns outside their usual scopes. IGAs offer more engagement than social posts, an incredible reach, and tons of customization potential—from static to dynamic to entire games built for brands.
Tuesday: With Apple Business Connect, you can claim your small or enterprise-level business locations and begin optimizing the information displayed to over 1 billion users across Apple Maps, Messages, Wallet, Siri, and more. Here’s how to get started.
Wednesday: Successful creators on YouTube have leveraged three strategies to mobilize audiences. First, they channel the power of niche communities. Second, they adapt their content across multiple formats to follow the appetite du jour. And finally, they invest in infinitely watchable Shorts.
Thursday: Meta descriptions may not have much bearing on your SERP ranking, but a good one can drive up your clickthrough rate and make Google take notice. Make sure your meta descriptions are relevant, 155 characters or less, written in active voice, feature a call to action, and include focus keywords.
