Search marketers are learning a new equation: Facebook + Google = $$$$. In 2011, search marketers are augmenting their search marketing efforts to include coordinated campaigns on Facebook and Twitter. Why? Consumers are spending more time on social media networks, and the impact of digital ads is improving rapidly. Advertising on social media is moving from optional to necessary.

Paid search practitioners are taking the lead. Paid Social, like paid search, has very similar dynamics – it is targetable, it is biddable, and it is effective. But there are challenges as well. Metrics are different. Use cases are different, such as consumers use social media through mobile as opposed to search.

This webcast will explore how some of today’s large advertisers are integrating search and social programs to create comprehensive, interactive ad campaigns.
