TEXT HEAVY

Now that Facebook has quietly eliminated the 20% text rule, you can put your message front and center, right in your image.

LIGHTS, CAMERA, VIDEO!

Video is still the top dog when it comes to social ad engagement, especially if it includes people's faces or examples of the product in use. Get creative by using b-roll or unused footage in new ways or to try something new without breaking the bank.

TESTIMONIALS

Consumers naturally trust other people more than they trust brand-produced marketing collateral, so curating great reviews from your customers and featuring them in ads is a great way to move people further down the funnel toward the conversion.
