  • 100 characters is the engagement sweet spot for a tweet. 

  • But 40 is the magic number that Jeff Bullas found was most effective in his study of retail brands on Facebook. He measured engagement of posts, defined by “like” rate and comment rate, and the ultra-short 40-character posts received 86 percent higher engagement than others.
  • The ideal length of a headline is 6 words
  • ...5 more annotations...
  •  we tend to absorb only the first three words and the last three words of a headline. If you want to maximize the chance that your entire headline gets read, keep your headline to six words.
  • MailChimp published the following headline on its blog: Subject Line Length Means Absolutely Nothing. This was quite the authoritative statement, but MailChimp had the data to back it up.

    Their research found no significant advantage to short or long subject lines in emails. Clicks and opens were largely the same.

  • Organizers of TED have found that 18 minutes is the ideal length of a presentation, and so all presenters—including Bill Gates and Bono—are required to come in under this mark.

  • By forcing speakers who are used to going on for 45 minutes to bring it down to 18, you get them to really think about what they want to say. … It has a clarifying effect. It brings discipline.
  • The ideal length of a domain name is 8 characters

Facebook Brand Updates Take Another Hit, Can You Recover? | ShopIgniter - 0 views

  • we looked at four post types: link posts, video posts, photo posts and status updates.

    When paid media is applied to an organic post, it can significantly increase Facebook metrics – from impressions (obviously), to conversions – so we removed all posts with paid impressions from the analysis. For both time periods, we took the total reach for each post type and divided it by the total post count for that post type to get the average reach per post type for the given time frame.

  • As expected, the average reach per post on status updates decreased after the algorithm change. Significantly.
  • Photo and video posts had no discernible change in reach after the algorithm change as we would expect.

    This is good news for marketers who already regularly integrate rich media into their post strategies as it is well documented that images and video generate greater fan engagement – and from this research, it looks clear that they will continue to do so.

  • ...5 more annotations...
  • While Facebook indicated other post types “may” increase in engagement and distribution, our research is evidence that this is clearly the case as our data pool showed a 30% increase in reach per post for link posts.
  • status update posts saw a 65% decrease in engagement. Not only do status updates have little to no real impact on your business, but now they have less reach, too.
  • 1. Decrease output of status updates
    Replace these post types with a link, photo or video post.
  • That research unveiled that video posts collected the largest amount of average viral impressions as a share of average total impressions with a 36% boost. Paid media also affected engagement quite meaningfully. While its impact varied across post types, Photo and Offer post types increased most in engagement when paid media was applied, making them ideal units.
  • Photos also had a high CTR average compared to other post types when paid media was applied, further reinforcing the Photo post type as a good choice for paid, rich media campaigns.
