Get 100 dollars Twitter ad credit from answering 5 questions.

Facebook has always been our choice for advertising with it’s robust platform. However, Twitter has recently started ramping up their efforts to attract advertisers.

Where as Facebook reduced the amount of ad types by combining them together, Twitter announced last month that they’re working on 15 different ad types.

If you’ve been curious about advertising on Twitter but didn’t have the budget or want to spend, here’s your chance. Twitter is giving out 100 dollars ad credit if you answer a 5 question survey, which only takes a few minutes to complete. Here’s how:

We were so excited, that we did a test campaign:

2014-05-27 17_19_37-Campaign overview - Twitter Ads

Our initial bid was $0.25, working out to a $10 CPM-  which is quite high, and in turn, drives up the cost per engagement to 20 cents. The default bids are always super-high, so be careful when making your campaign.

In this case, we should be bidding about 15 cents, unless we can’t get traffic in the auction at that price.

If this happens to you, either your bid is too high or your budget is too big– one of the two is usually out of balance (and it’s likely the former).

Give this a try and let us know your campaign results! We’re always happy to feature awesome stories.
