Social Shopping — Buy buttons have come to social media, allowing retailers to make sales directly through major social media sites allowing social media marketing efforts to be more targeted into Facebook marketing, Twitter marketing, and Pinterest marketing efforts.. These buttons have the potential to benefit businesses by streamlining the transaction process, increasing revenue opportunity, and (potentially) saving them money on interchange fees. This trend is still new, however, and critics are skeptical of both its adoption and performance potential. That said, for retailers looking to get items in front of a massive audience, the time may be now to dive in and test social media buy buttons.

Online display advertising is the process of advertising a company or product on websites. Display ads come in a variety of shapes and sizes and serve to encourage audiences to engage with the company associated with the ad. Marketers and advertisers use display advertising software in order to target, purchase, manage, and track display advertisements. Along with paid search advertising, display advertising is one of the most used forms of online advertising.
Demand side platforms, or DSPs, give advertisers the ability to buy ads in real time through a process called real time bidding (RTB). DSPs are not a specific advertising channel but instead allow advertisers to reach individuals instantaneously in real time. With DSPs, advertisers can purchase ads on an impression-by-impression basis, by bidding on an incoming impression within the milliseconds it takes for a web page to load.
Video Content — Video content on social media is heating up. This is due in large part to the increased engagement video posts garner. Facebook posts receive 25% more engagement when they contain a video, and Instagram videos and IGTV receive two times the engagement of Instagram photos. While videos are naturally more costly to produce than picture and text content, existing video content can be repurposed to share on social media.

Which Ad Platform Should You Use For Shopify Dropshipping?
Animated ads can be far more eye-catching that traditional ads, and have traditionally out-performed statis ads. Much like static ads, simpler is also better. You can fit more content across multiple screens, but the pacing and amount of text should be easy to read and digest. You want your ad to tell a story, with the last screen being the most effective place for your CTA. For best practices, keep the animation under 15-seconds, looping no more than 3 times. However, animation doesn’t necessarily guarantee better performance. It really depends on the channel, messaging, and audience.
