Last week, Outbrain’s VP Brands Miko Levy hosted a live webinar with the one and only Larry Kim– CEO of MobileMonkey focusing on the top 10 PPC Marketing Hacks for 2018. It was a really informative, hack-packed hour with loads of useful tips, technical tricks and broader strategic lessons, plenty of unicorn allusions, and a quick Q & A session to wrap up.
Miko presented the first 5 hacks, inspired by some of the tricks used by Outbrain’s online acquisition team to increase conversions in their own performance marketing activities. Then Larry took the unicorn reins and presented his 5 favorite hacks, which covered everything from Google Adwords to Facebook and Twitter. He also discussed the new, up-and-coming approach to targeting – Facebook Messenger on mobile – which is only used by 1% of marketers, yet delivers incredible conversion rates. And of course, both Larry and Miko wandered into Outbrain territory and discussed how the high quality and properly vetted Outbrain publisher network is so important to getting genuine, valuable clicks.
To really get the full meal of Larry and Miko’s PPC wisdom, we recommend watching the webinar recording:
Here’s a bite-size round up of the top 10 PPC hacks that every performance marketer needs to know:
