It was a unique week in the PPC space, as both Google and Bing banned different types of ads/advertisers from their platforms. Facebook spent the week playing firefighter against the flames of accusations that its Trending Topics are biased. And Amazon opened its video platform to folks like you and me who want to upload and make money from video publishing.
Those were the main topics that we cover in the latest episode of our weekly video show, Marketing Land Live.
Barry Levine, Ginny Marvin and Tamar Weinberg joined me for this episode, which runs about 49 minutes. You can watch the replay below. Be sure to scroll below the video for this week’s Show Notes, with links to the stories we talked about.
We record new episodes of Marketing Land Live every Friday at 12:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 a.m. PT on Blab, so we hope you’ll make plans to join us live in the future.
