Expansion of Brand Collabs Manager
To help advertisers find creators for branded content partnerships, based on real insights, we introduced Brand Collabs Manager
. Today we’re announcing that creators in over 40 countries can now apply for access to Brand Collabs Manager, bringing it in line with in-stream ads. And we’ll continue expanding in coming months. To qualify for Brand Collabs Manager, you need at least 1,000 followers and one or more of the following over the last two months, 15,000 engagements on your posts, 180,000 minutes viewed, or 30,000 1-minute views on videos that are 3-minutes or longer. In the coming months, we will also make improvements to organic and paid insights to help advertisers to understand the performance of their branded content posts more deeply. You can learn more here
Enhancements to Creator Studio: Traffic Source Insights & Instagram Features
Along with content, we want to make content data more accessible, too. In the coming weeks, we’ll introduce a new data visualization in Creator Studio called Traffic Source Insights. Publishers and creators will clearly see how their content is distributed across Facebook, and be able to optimize for each source. Traffic Source Insights breaks out video watch time and retention metrics for a Page across four key sources: Followers, Shares, Recommended and Paid. You can view metrics in aggregate, and view top videos in a particular time range for each source.
