Social Media Pubcast by Jon Loomer

This week's Pubcast, sponsored by TabSite, was an absolute blast. Andrea Vahl, AKA Grandma Mary, stopped by, and we chatted about the following hot topics:

  • The birth of Grandma Mary
  • The value of social media marketing conferences
  • Power Editor and using it to learn about your subscribers
  • The death of the Notifications Box in the Admin Panel
  • The change to Promoted Posts, removing "Fans Only" option
  • Facebook contests, and the tools Andrea uses (including TabSite!)

Here are some links and articles that were discussed:

Dennis Yu of BlitzMetrics is one of my go-to people regarding advanced Facebook advertising topics. He is deep in it, and often has access to tools that very few are using or knowledge of tools that aren't yet released. This is a must listen!

Topics include the potential impact of Partner Categories and creative ways to realize incredible results from Custom Audiences. We also dip a bit into where Dennis thinks Facebook is heading.

The Pubcast got an upgrade! New intro music, new structure, new fun. Take a listen and let me know what you think!

In this week's Pubcast, I drink at the virtual bar by myself. But there's still plenty of fun stuff to talk about, including...

Social Media Marketing World

I had an amazing time in San Diego at this event sponsored by Social Media Examiner. Virtually everyone was there, and I had an awesome time. I share what I learned and how this event was inspiration for me to make changes to the Pubcast -- as well as what other changes may be coming.

Update to Promoted Posts

Many are reporting that Facebook has removed the ability to target Fans only with Promoted Posts. Is this a big deal? I break it down.

Partner Categories

Facebook has quietly rolled out a potentially poweful advertising tool that will allow marketers even more ability to target the users they want with Partner Categories. Listen to my thoughts about this new feature.

Ryan Hanley stopped by the Social Media Pubcast to discuss "Content Warfare" and the battle for attention. This pretty much became a Marcus Sheridan lovefest, but we did find time to talk about some interesting topics that include blogging strategies, effectively using video and the potential impact of Twitter cards.
