The use of icons and it’s impression on users. Engagement in return which doubles down the ad cost with its beautiful colour combo and minimal design.
Not everything has to be a sales pitch. Here’s Shopify trying to promote their blog content online instead of promoting their niche. Acute lesson to be learned here.
Yeah, a video inside a carousel is also possible with Facebook’s Dynamic ad features. Brings the product or service some life into it.
Here, GoPro is giving an option for their existing loyal customers with a trade-up option. Go Custom audience to the core and show them this particular offer to get upgraded. Results will follow. Who doesn’t like an upgrade?
Presale countdown ads for Facebook are a great way to build up some hype chain and get people to save the date to grab your offer. It works well.
If you’ve got a decent number or stat you could brag out to the public? Why not brag it out through Facebook as a means of promotion? Creates a reputation for yourself and build more trust.
Bright colours always get your attention. Asana always manages to come up with really well blend colour combos which would instantly grab your attention. Colour psychology plays a massive part, colour combinations is probably the most important aspect of an ad and how it’s presented for the wide audience. Asana does it well with really bright colours.
#8 Adobe Stock
Stock Photo and an overlay text image of your logo. Adobe Stock’s logo stands out pretty well, doesn’t it? Make a dark background image, not necessarily a stock image and an overlay, the result? What you just saw above. Adobe know their stuff, we all know that.
Specifically for their current and potential customers by getting hooked with their very first sentence – ‘Get, keep and grow more customers’. Followed by a selection of carousel.
Highlighting their 20% discount above all. Let your audience know what you are offering, there isn’t a better option out there like Hubspot’s ad here.
Highlights come from the text. ‘Your life is about to change’ – Grammarly is making a huge statement here and it definitely sparks an interest in our mind.
Google doesn’t necessarily need an ad to showcase their services. Instead, they want to make it all about you and remind you how much Google is doing for you. Put the customers first instead of prioritizing your company or brand. Results will follow.
#13 The Color Run
The Color Run focuses the Blue-White palette here which makes the text standout as well as the personalities in the ad. With not so much to explain, but you will get the picture just by taking a look at it and see their objective.
Letting your potential customers know about the userbase of your product. The probability of x figure impressing you and even making you a step closer to use their service are significantly high compared to a brand you a relatively unknown of. Here Dropbox is letting you know that they are well established and respected by many businesses.
There isn’t much happening here with Adidas’ Pharrell Williams’ sneakers here. Just being creative and elegant. You don’t need to overdo it to show the significance or beauty of a particular apparel or accessories.
Upwork is trying to take an action here. Slowly tilting the slide to their favour by helping users to solve a problem here with a solution, which is a service provided by Upwork.
Temptation. Phrases like ‘Free’, ‘Offer’ and more would land to your eyes without even knowing. Marvel is trying to highlight the biggest CTA strategy here with their membership features.
Similar to Adidas. Not overcooking but highlighting their product with visual colours and the Nike branding.
#19 Jungle Scout
#20 Google Cloud
Simple and minimal with some really gorgeous colors which make it standout when laid on top of a white background. It’s the least we could expect from Canva.
Going 100% minimal ain’t that bad it seems. Straight to the point, “Yeah, it’s us”. Wrap it up!
A hybrid image of unicorns, rainbow, stars and a female model. Always do your best to speak in customer’s language like Slack doing right here with this ad. By highlighting customer’s problem and offering a solution is a genuine way of offering help through your ad.
Here, the collage of different dish images adds even more vibrancy and contrast than if there was just one image, and all of the colours go along really well. Also giving an option to your audience to respond through three of the emojis options provided. The colours compliment each other.
Other note to be pointed would be incorporate the brand colour to the image with high quality. Don’t let them question your quality.
Hold these points tight.
Creating a landing page for your Facebook traffic to visit is integral to the success of your Facebook ad campaigns regardless of how much effort you put in and if the landing page sucks, that’s a breaking point for your potential customers. Use common image on both of them – landing page and the ad campaign.
According to Adespresso data, almost 70% of the marketers knew how much it would affect their business.
Here we can see 11% of the marketers are missing out on the potential customers with the lack of customized landing pages. Instead, they are redirecting the customers to their Home Page. So numbers prove to us that whatever you might be offering for, e-book, brochure, webinars, etc., your landing page should match the Facebook ad campaign.
Hopefully, these examples of some of the best Facebook ads we came up with managed to give some insights and inspiration as you take your next step in creating a new campaign. Your past experiences might have helped you learned your lessons as well when it didn’t work out like you hoped it would.
Quality over quantity. Make sure you come up with a bold headline and rich visual content by being short and engaging for your audience. As each day passes, it’s getting harder and harder for you to reach a particular goal with your Digital Marketing campaigns. Because no one is looking to do something new and risk worthy. Instead, they all try to follow the safe path like a leader in their industry. To make a huge leap in the final lap. Set the tone, take a different track from everyone else. The road less travelled leads you to better successful results.
