Why Are Product Feeds Important To Ecommerce Marketers?

D38 | product feeds 3

Product data feeds or also known as shopping feeds are in the form of CSV, TXT, or XML files that contains information about your products. This type of feed is usually used in product marketing channels on platforms like Amazon, Google, and Facebook.

Why is product feeds vital to eCommerce marketers?

Photo Credits: Go Data Feed

Shopping channels require the submission of product data to generate product feeds. Most eCommerce campaigns employ product feeds to gather product data from different places.

Shopping channels and marketplaces use the product data as a sign to know the campaign quality. Most of these channels check the data in your feed to compose decisions as to whether they would show your product on a search query.

Product feeds can either bring success or failure to the merchant’s e-commerce campaigns.

Benefits Of Having An Optimised Product Feed

Better Quality Scores

Channels and their algorithms decide what listings to show to the shoppers through your product data. Everything in the product feed affects everything and the more complete the data product, wins every time.

Data Accuracy

Ensure that your product listings match your store data, up-to-date and that they are all current. Old and inaccurate data on your product listings give your buyers a bad shopping experience and can cost you kicked out on some channels.

Flexible Product Data

If the merchants pay dollars to different marketing channels in order to gain impressions and clicks, make sure to stick to the best practices that will help you achieve the most conversions. Product feeds offer flexibility over your product data, it allows you to edit and improve your store’s data in order to increase impressions.

Social Dark Posts And Why Should Use Them

D38 | Social Dark Posts ft imgPhoto Credits: Vectorified

Social dark posts are also called targeted ads on social media. It’s not your ordinary boosted or organic posts and they don’t appear on your timeline.

Social dark posts show up as sponsored content in the feeds of users you’re specifically targeting. Dark posts are not “published” like the organic posts, they are known on Facebook as unpublished posts.

Facebook may have invented the concept, but dark posts are lingering on all major social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram.

Why Should You Use Social Dark Posts?

  1. Precision in targeting

Photo Credits: Unsplash

Dark posts allow you to target users by using specific keywords like their exact job title, interest and etc. It also offers you to make custom ads for each targeted audience segment.

For example, imagine you’re a skincare brand. With traditional targeting, you mainly focus on 25-year-old single ladies from Singapore or 20-year-old college students from Korea. But with dark posts, you could target both groups with customized ads at the same time.

The exact targeting will be great for social media ROI.

  1. Major options for A/B testing

D38 | Social Dark Posts 4
Photo Credits: Unsplash

A/B testing also known as split testing is a great way to improve ads. It allows businesses to present two different versions of ads to their clients to determine which performs better.

With dark posts, you can try testing with the image, headline, call-to-action button, or your ad copy. Then target headlines A and B to the same group with half of the users seeing headline A, and the other half would see headline B.

You will be able to determine which headline works better when you see the results in engagement and conversions.

  1. Helps you improve your other content

Photo Credits: Unsplash

The A/B testing will optimise your future dark posts but it can also make your organic and boosted posts work even better.

Conduct A/B Testing and see which type of posts gets more engagement. You can then use the headline with a higher click-through rate for the published version of the post.

  1. It prevents your content to look spammy

D38 | Social Dark Posts 2

Dark posts keep your timeline ad-free and prevent making your page looking spammy.

Upholding consistent social media content is crucial for any brand. Maintaining a clean timeline without tons of ads will help you highlight your brand presence—and publishing dark posts is a way to do that.

  1. They keep your followers’ feeds from looking spammy

Photo Courtesy: Unsplash

A Forrester survey said that 26% of American youth felt there were too many ads in their Facebook feeds.

Dark posts avoid annoying your avid followers. The only people who can see your dark posts are the people you’ve carefully targeted, and ads based on their interests.

It means that there’s more space for you to improve your brand presence and spread your message via organic content and boosted posts.

Create a dark post on your Facebook

  1. Open your Business Manager menu
  2. Click “Page Posts”. In here, you can create your dark posts
  3. Select “Create Post”
  4. Select your post type. You can upload an image post, video, link, carousel, or Story
  5. Add your CTA. You can select a number of actions such as “Book Now”, “Subscribe”, “Get Offer”, etc.
  6. You can then select “Only use this post for an ad”
  7. Click “Create Post”. You now have your own dark post!

Note that the post will not be live anywhere until you use it to create an ad. For you to do this, you must use the tick button on the left-hand side to select your post.

Running a dark post opens a great opportunity to interact with potential buyers and help them make a decision sooner on your online store.  It’s important that you reply to these comments as early as possible to capitalise on your products and services.

  3. Select Duplicate.
