I came across this Facebook ad Wanted: Digital/SM Work that clicked through to Josh Hedrick’s LinkedIn profile. I thought it was a great way to stand out and attract potential employers to you. When I’m hiring for social media I want people that are proactive and have experience using social networks & ad platforms in a smart way. This helps show me that Josh most likely has those skill sets.
Good luck in your job search Josh!
If you know of anyone using social media in creative ways to find a job, let me know. I’ll add to this blog post.
#Fail or sneaky brilliant? My first thought was that copywriter is getting canned! After further review I saw the brilliance. The first challenge for any Facebook ad is to be seen. And that can be kinda sorta hard with a 110 x 80 image and 90 characters of text to work with.
So why not try misspelling to stand out? It’s the reason I noticed this ad. Better yet that “Drnk Respnsibly” infers that perhaps the writer of this ad wasn’t following his own advice. Social Media should be a medium where we can push the envelope and test what works.
Here’s to Grt FB Advrtisng!
One of the announcements from Facebook’s fmc on February 29 was that Facebook would be placing advertising within the News Feed. Less than a week later I’ve seen my first ad within the Facebook News Feed. The only ad format currently eligible for News Feed placement is a sponsored story.
The sponsored story that showed up for me was a Page Like story. The sponsored label does not stand out like it does on Twitter. The only reason I noticed is that a page like update normally only appears in the Facebook Ticker not the News Feed. Well, until now.
What do you think of paid content entering the organic portion of Facebook? What sponsored stories are you seeing in your News Feed?
Today Facebook has granted Preview access to Page Admins to see what the new Business Pages with Facebook Timeline will look like. Guess what? They look exactly like Facebook Timeline for personal profiles. No surprise there. It will be great for businesses to have access to the the Cover image in order to better brand your page.
This change goes into effect on March 30, 2012. You can upgrade to it earlier. Time to get working on your Facebook Cover Image, here’s some inspiration from personal profiles to get you going. So far I like the Facebook Cover Images for Livestrong, Verizon and Old Spice the best.
