social Agencies must now confirm client relationships before enabling Facebook Pixel and event sets

Facebook is updating its policies around who can enable its Pixel and event sets, now requiring agencies to confirm their relationship with clients before leveraging either ad-targeting tool for client campaigns. Why marketers should care? Facebook’s Pixel and offline event sets allow marketers to track activity outside of Facebook and then use that data to target ads to users on the platform.

 discussion Redefining success: 3 dangers of email conversion inflation

“If you can’t win the game, change the rules.” It’s the mantra of scrappy upstarts, but it’s also the mantra of the underhanded. During the Internet Era, we’ve changed the rules of marketing a lot — and it hasn’t all been in the scrappy upstart way. A huge part of that change has involved the metrics that we use to measure success. For instance, we replaced readership in the world of magazine and newspaper ads with impressions in the world of display ads. And we replaced viewership in the world of [...] [more]

discussion Email provider Bluecore, UGC platform Olapic team up to use consumers’ photos in marketing emails

The company claims that email with UGC content leads to an increase in conversions of 30 percent, and an increase in average order value of more than 25 percent. Adobe’s recent purchase of UGC platform Livefyre signals that such content will become an even bigger part of marketing campaigns, including email marketing.
