Want to Purchase a Promoted Tweet? Be Prepared for 3 Month Commitment, Says Twitter

Twitter is starting up a new advertising program, and from the looks of it, it’s meant to entice businesses that just couldn’t pony up the more than $100,000 it reportedly costs for a traditional Promoted Trend.

Twitter Expands Twitter For Business Section (And Now Everyone Can Sign Up To Buy Ads)

Twitter has refreshed its Twitter For Business pages to provide a lot more detail on how the platform can be beneficial for corporates.

The biggest changes are content-rich sections on their promotional features, which includes promoted tweets, trends, accounts and analytics.

Promoted Tweets

Promoted Trends

Promoted Accounts


Twitter also expands on its Cost-per-Engagement (CPE) system:

When you promote a Tweet, only the most relevant users see it–put simply, that’s users that follow similar accounts to yours.

Promoted Tweets are offered on a Cost-per-Engagement (CPE) basis, so you only pay when a user Retweets, replies to, clicks on or favorites your Promoted Tweet. Retweeted impressions by engaged users are free, and can amplify the reach and cost-effectiveness of your campaign many times over.

I’m curious how you set a payment ceiling when an advertising message can be passed on by retweets – if you’ve hit your daily budget, does the message stop appearing completely, or are the retweets still ‘out there’ and, therefore, retweetable, at no extra cost to you?

While the advertising program is still in beta and only available to a select group of advertisers, Twitter has added a form to their business pages which allow everybody to sign up to be notified when the platform goes live to all. I’ve signed up, and if you’re a business or brand looking to leverage Twitter and its 175+ million users, so should you.
