Instagram Unveils Ads in Search Results with Reminder Ads Feature

The introduction of ads in search results on Instagram could help the company increase advertising demand as it grapples with weak demand. These ads will be shown to people who are actively searching for businesses, products and content, which should provide a more targeted audience for advertisers.

In recent years, Facebook has been under fire for its privacy policies. Many users are weary of the amount of data that Facebook collects about them and use other networks like LinkedIn to connect with friends and professionals without sharing their exact details about themselves. Meta is a new social network that is designed to take advantage of all the rich data that Facebook has on its users. Meta plans to launch ads in search results globally, which will likely be an unwelcome addition to the app from a consumer standpoint. However, Meta hopes that by bringing ads into search results, it will generate more revenue for the company and giveusers an alternative way to connect with friends and professionals outside of Facebook proper.

Users will start to see ads for products and services related their recent searches. For example, if you search for “Skin Care,” you will see relevant ads within the search results feed. Sponsored posts will have a label that says “Sponsored.”

Instagram is introducing Reminder Ads in order to help businesses build awareness and anticipation for upcoming events. This new feature will allow users to opt into notifications and receive three notifications before the event, at the time of the event, and one day before. This will help businesses create a better experience for their followers.

Instagram's new Reminder Ads

Meta’s revenue is continuing to decline, which shows the impact of the current unstable economy on internet companies. Their new tools aim to bolster their ad revenue in the future, and hopefully help them to recover from this rough patch.

Despite Meta’s revenue decline in Q2 2022, the company increased its ad load on Instagram with the launch of two new ad slots. The new ad format for Facebook Reels and starting allowing advertisers to run ads on the Explore home page and in profile feeds could help relieve some of Meta’s revenue problems.

Digital advertising is suffering from a lack of demand, as evidenced by the fact that both Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and CEO of Snapchat, Evan Spiegel, have mentioned it in their recent stockholder reports. This is likely due to consumer unease after the election coupled with an overall slower economy. However, even though digital advertising may not be performing as well as it used to in terms of revenue growth rates and spending levels, it’s still a necessary evil for companies who want to stay afloat.
