In this episode of Perpetual Traffic, Ralph and Kasim explore the implications of Meta (formerly Facebook) and AI in marketing. They discuss the advantages of Facebook’s Advantage Plus campaign type, highlighting how it has been utilized by larger brands to enhance their e-commerce efforts. However, they emphasize that this tactic should be seen as just one piece of the puzzle, and CMOs and marketing directors should focus on leveraging it to drive growth and expand their market. Ralph shares a case study involving Allergan, showcasing how a combination of awareness campaigns, video views, traffic campaigns, and middle-of-the-funnel exchanges helped introduce customers to the brand and collect data for retargeting. The hosts stress the importance of targeting individuals who may not be ready to make a purchase with branding campaigns that tell the brand’s story or highlight its lifestyle. While acknowledging the impressive AI capabilities of Facebook, they also advise marketers to exercise caution and prioritize building campaigns that truly resonate with their specific target audience.
