How to Create Persuasive Facebook Ads
Facebook is the world’s largest social network. If you include Instagram and Messenger, the platform has more than 2x the users of the next most popular network. But with that huge reach comes huge competition. In addition to using this template, here are some other things you can do to get an edge.
- Use the Facebook Ad Library to see the exact ads your competitors are running. Then, try a similar but improved approach… or a totally different one.
- Use a tool like Canva, Stencil or Snappa to create images for your ads. (Tip: see all of Facebook’s supported ad formats and specifications here.)
- Match your ad copy and imagery to your audience targeting. A 25-year-old who’s interested in entrepreneurship and Gary Vaynerchuk should probably see a different ad than a 55-year-old who’s into journalism and the New Yorker.
- Use the Dynamic Creative ad type. This lets you include different versions of each part of your ad. Then, Facebook will take those raw materials and find the best performing combination for you. It’s like split-testing, on autopilot.
