What’s New with AdStage in October

September was a big month in AdStage and we’re excited to share all the network specific releases that will help you get the most out of your paid advertising efforts. After collaborating with our customers and network partners, we’ve added a wealth of newly supported features and data types.

LinkedIn Conversion Tracking

We’re honored to team up with LinkedIn Marketing Solutions to pilot the highly anticipated Conversion Tracking for Sponsored Content and Text Ads campaigns. Followed by a wave of excitement from B2B marketers, Conversion Tracking is available to all LinkedIn advertisers. Read the official release notes here.

LinkedIn Conversion Tracking allows advertisers to understand which audience, message, and landing page are driving the best return on ad spend for a desired outcome (such as a form fill).

Our product team elicited the help of some of our most active customers to pilot the support of LinkedIn Conversion Tracking within AdStage. We’re excited to reveal that AdStage users can both create, and import existing conversion tracking within the platform.

Facebook Relevance Score

For years search advertisers relied on insights from Google AdWords and Bing Ads Quality Score to identify ad and keyword relevance and popularity for a specific target audience. For social advertisers, how Facebook served their creative was often a black box. With the release of ad relevance score, advertisers can now glean valuable information on how Facebook distributes and calculates the cost of their creative.

What is Facebook’s Ad Relevance Score?

“Relevance score is calculated based on the positive and negative feedback an expected ad will receive from its target audience. The more positive interactions the an ad is expected to receive, the higher the ad’s relevance score will be. The more times an ad is expected to be hid or reported, the lower its score will be.

Ads receive a relevance score between 1 and 10, with 10 being the highest. The score is updated as people interact and provide feedback on the ad.”
