      LinkedIn Pages adds tools to help businesses connect with users, including LinkedIn Live

      LinkedIn has launched some exciting new features! You can now invite connections to follow a managed Page, stream LinkedIn Live from Pages, and you get access to new posting options.

      Page admins can invite 50 connections a day. If you’re a user who doesn’t want to receive invites, you opt out.

      LinkedIn Live, which was previously in beta, will be a game changer. People respond to live video, and now, professionals have a place to gather for live content. You can apply for LinkedIn Live here.

      Facebook released their publisher list which lets you see all audience network, instant articles, and in-stream video placements that your ads can show on

      What this means for you is that you can create a block list in case you want to avoid showing on certain sites and publications. You can now prevent your ads from showing on pages associated with certain industries, like porn, religion, or politics.

      Spotify podcast ads can now track impressions, reach, and audience data.

      Podcast platforms have always had limited analytics on listener data. But they also have some of the most engaged, high-income audiences of all media types, and thus some of the highest brand/message recall rates.

      The issue with podcasts has always been about measurement. Spotify announced that it will address this problem with digital ad insertion. This data will help podcasters monetize and get sponsorships since they can provide more performance metrics to sponsors.

      You may be tempted to go after popular true crime podcasts or Joe Rogan for sponsorships, but niche podcasts are better options. That’s because they have small but prized audiences that offer an affordable way of getting a high ROI.

      If you want to grow a software company, you can look for tech- or software-themed podcasts. If you’re selling products to mothers, podcasts are a great fit since there are plenty of shows targeting moms. You get the idea—find podcasts that are relevant to your industry, and you may very well strike gold.

      This update will roll out slowly, so keep it in mind for later in 2020.

      France’s Macron pauses tech tax after U.S. pressure

      France was considering a digital tax on all tech, which would impact the U.S. considerably since most of the largest tech companies are from the U.S. After the U.S. threatened to retaliate with a tax on French products, Macron decided to back off.

      Since privacy is becoming an increasingly concern for users of tech products, governments are rolling out new data privacy laws to manage privacy more effectively.

      I’m torn about whether data privacy laws are good. On one hand, privacy is important for all of us. But on the other hand, that data helps us deliver more intelligent and personalized marketing campaigns to our users. Ultimately, I’m okay with giving up some of my data because of the convenience it affords me in certain situations. What are your thoughts on this hot topic?


      What’s up internet, Arsham Mirshah here,

      another episode of More Than Marketing.

      Today we’re talking LinkedIn, Facebook,

      maybe a little bit of Spotify,

      and I’ll talk to you
      about some macroeconomics

      seen in the digital space as well.

      Stay tuned, let’s do it.

      Today, at the end of the
      episode, I am gonna talk to you

      about some macroeconomics

      that I see happening
      in the in the digital,

      kind of tech world, so to speak.

      These companies Google,
      Facebook, Microsoft and LinkedIn.

      They’re in the stock market news

      and in the international news,

      and even in the politics, news.

      I’ll talk to you about
      my opinions on this.

      But first, let me help you save some money

      and get your CPAs looking better as well.

      Number one is, let’s talk
      about Facebook a little bit.

      Facebook, back in September,

      they rolled out their publisher list.

      So if you’re running ads on Facebook,

      and you’re using their audience network,

      you can see where your ads are running.

      And then you can add any publishers

      that you don’t want to a block list.

      Okay, so like, you know, I don’t know.

      I’ve seen clients do, they
      don’t wanna be on certain sites

      or certain industries like maybe porn

      or religious or something like that.

      And so you can add them to your blocklist.

      You can also if you knew your audience

      is not on at certain publishers,

      you can also block those as well.

      So you save some of your budget

      then you put towards places
      where your audience is.

      That’s Facebook, wanna go on to Spotify.

      This was really cool
      news because podcasting,

      podcasting has been like
      heating up blowing up.

      It’s like the new thing.

      Everyone’s got a podcast
      now including yours truly,

      you’re listening to it.

      Spotify has added the
      ability to track impressions,

      reach, and audience data
      through their ads, Spotify Ads,

      so if you’re a B2B or B2C,

      and you’re trying to reach a
      certain audience and you know

      that that audience listens
      to a certain podcast,

      you can go to Spotify and say,

      “Hey, I wanna advertise
      on this on this podcast

      or this category.”

      And before, if you do
      that you wouldn’t get any

      like data, you wouldn’t know
      how many people listen to it,

      you wouldn’t know who
      those people might be

      their demographics and what have you.

      But now they’ve ruled
      out that you can actually

      can get that data from
      them, which is awesome.

      It’s I think it’s the first, yes,

      the first podcast network
      to do that so that’s huge.

      I think podcast advertising
      is going to continue

      to become more self service

      like in this Spotify
      example is self service.

      Cause in the early days
      of podcasting, even today,

      the best way to advertise
      on someone’s podcast

      is to reach out to the host
      or reach out to the people

      producing that particular
      podcast and tell them,

      “Hey, I wanna advertise.”

      And strike a deal with that, right?

      So if you’re listening to this,

      you want to advertise on this podcast,

      you would reach out to me and say,

      “Hey, I got 10 bucks, you
      know, play, play my app”

      Now I think that’s really cool.

      I think that’s a step
      in the right direction.

      I think that advertisers and agencies,

      they want that data they need
      that data to make decisions.

      So well done Spotify clap
      to you, claps to you,

      well done proud of you
      keep pioneering that space,

      we’d like to hear it.

      The other thing I’m
      thinking about Spotify is

      when you listen to
      podcasts and it has ads,

      if the ads are just like built in,

      if it’s the host kind
      of pitching something

      people can skip those, right?

      Whereas with something like Pandora,

      when you’re listening to
      music, you can’t skip that ad.

      So that’s, it’s kind of interesting.

      And I think with Spotify,
      it’s gonna be that way too.

      So that’s a Spotify let’s
      move on to LinkedIn,

      which rolled out new features
      to their business pages.

      So if you have a page on LinkedIn,

      doesn’t matter if you’re B2B, B2C,

      you probably have a page on LinkedIn,

      whether its for recruiting or
      for promoting your products

      and services, again,
      doesn’t really matter,

      you have a page there.

      And they’ve rolled out some new features.

      So among those features
      are the ability to post

      as either the page or post as yourself.

      So I’m Arsham, I got Web
      Mechanix business page.

      When I went there as an admin,
      I couldn’t post as Arsham

      I could only post as Web Mechanix.

      Now I can post as Arsham if I want to.

      That’s kind of cool, it makes
      it a little more personal.

      Another feature which is
      designed to foster connections

      and make things more
      personal is you can now

      each admins can send
      invitations to their connections

      to come follow the page.

      If your goal is to increase
      your LinkedIn followership,

      so you get more organic reach
      ,some more earned media,

      this is your feature.

      This is the feature you’ve
      been waiting for, right?

      So you’ll make your highly connected folks

      in your organization
      and admin of your page

      and show them how to go in
      and invite their connections

      to come follow your page.

      So then when you post
      updates, it’s more likely that

      that those updates show up in
      their newsfeed on LinkedIn.

      The feature I’m most excited
      about is LinkedIn Live.

      So that was in Beta and that
      was in Beta last February

      and now it’s just broadly applicable

      to available to all pages.

      So just like Facebook
      Live or Instagram Live,

      Facebook pages, I’m sorry,
      LinkedIn pages can go live

      and I think that that’s going to be a,

      I think I’m hypothesizing,
      it’s gonna be pretty big

      for opening up the the B2B,
      especially the B2B angle

      to get like real conversations going

      and creating content
      if nothing else, right?

      If no one joins your LinkedIn live,

      at least you’ve created content
      so you’ll probably see me

      on LinkedIn live here
      in the next month or so.

      So come follow Web Mechanix

      and send me a connection
      request love to chat

      and see me on LinkedIn live.

      That’s awesome.

      Well done Microsoft, well done LinkedIn.

      It’s actually kind of funny.

      It feels like the business
      tools are following

      the personal tools but like
      with the whole Live thing,

      but whatever.

      So then, macroeconomically,

      this digital space is kind of interesting.

      It heats up and cools down,
      heats up and cools down.

      Most recently, in the last months or so,

      France was talking about
      levying a digital tax.

      So France was gonna say,

      “Hey look I’m gonna put 3% tax

      “on digital companies or,
      or tech companies rather,”

      So this is like Facebook, Apple,
      Google, Microsoft, Amazon.

      And they’re saying that if
      you’re one of these companies,

      we’re gonna just take 3%
      of your revenue off the top

      as taxes, France was saying that.

      Now, it’s interesting to me

      because all the biggest
      tech companies in the world

      are American companies.

      Its why if you look at our stock market,

      our stock market is at all time highs

      keep breaking up all time
      highs it seems like every day.

      And I think 18% of the S&P, S&P
      500’s market capitalization,

      18% of it, is made up of four or five

      of the biggest tech companies

      Apple, Microsoft, Amazon,
      Facebook, Google, right?

      I believe it’s those five
      makeup 18% of the S&P 500.

      500 companies, five of them
      make up 18%, pretty interesting.

      1% of companies make up 18%.

      So I kind of understand why
      France or any other country

      might look at that and say,

      “You know what, we’re gonna
      take a little bit off the top.”

      Also, I understand, frankly,

      because there’s a lot of discussion,

      especially in the EU is
      really pioneering this.

      They started with GDPR

      and then now we have in California CCPA.

      But the EU is really concerned
      about their citizens privacy

      and probably if these were
      these American companies

      were European companies
      they would have probably

      been under the gun for
      antitrust which means

      investigated to see if they
      haven’t a monopoly or not.

      Whereas America is letting them grow up.

      And we’re not, we don’t seem as concerned

      about user privacy and what have you

      because don’t see many laws or bills

      being introduced or passed around those.

      I don’t know if that’s
      good or bad, honestly

      cause I’m, obviously an
      agency advertiser, right?

      I help companies advertise online

      and I love all that data, I need it.

      It makes our campaigns better.

      But I can understand because
      I’m a user too, right.

      I’m on the internet I buy
      stuff on the internet.

      I get targeted with ads.

      And I’ll be honest,
      like I kind of like it.

      I think that my, at least I’m speaking

      I hope for my generation,
      certainly for me.

      We believe our I believe
      I don’t wanna say we,

      I like convenience.

      So I’m willing to give up some privacy,

      some of my own data for convenience.

      Like I don’t want to see an ad

      that’s targeted towards
      women, for instance, right?

      Its probably not relevant for me.

      So that’s why I’m okay with
      with that data going out there,

      but I can see the other side as well.

      So this is very interesting.

      Now to circle back on that France 3% tax,

      so then the US said,

      “Okay, if you do that, then
      we’re going to levy a tariff

      “on wine and cheese and Champagne
      that comes from France.”

      And that kind of back and forth,

      has left France to back
      down and state on the record

      that they’re not gonna
      pursue that tax in 2020.

      So that they may later on
      but, but it’s interesting

      how this this tech space
      and privacy and all that is

      heats up and cools down
      and it’s in the headlines

      and then it’s not.

      And then it’s just interesting to see how

      it’s gonna continue to unfold.

      I feel like we’re still sort
      of in the Wild Wild West,

      although you do see some
      regulations coming down

      to help users and consumers
      and I think that’s good

      for the long term and it’s
      just fun to see it all unfold.

      And Ihope that was interesting to you.

      Love to hear what you think.

      Should there be more laws?

      What do you think about privacy?

      Are you concerned about it or not?

      There’s also the CEO of Google came out

      I think, today or yesterday and said,

      he supports the EU’s decision
      to basically put a ban

      on facial recognition technology
      being in public spaces

      for the next five years

      until lawmakers can catch up
      to the appropriate regulations

      and laws in that in that space.

      So it’s funny, it’s just regulation laws,

      Wild Wild West tech, big tech, privacy.

      Big discussions to be had around it.

      Love to hear what you think about it.

      Kindly shoot me a note on any channel.

      I’m on all of them

      Facebook, Twitter, shoot me an email.

      I don’t care, contact from our site.

      Love to hear what you think.

      And hope you enjoyed this episode.

      See you next time, cheers.
