Meta ads, or metadata ads, are crucial to successful marketing campaigns. These ads provide a glimpse into a product or service, its use, and its value, enticing potential customers to engage and convert (AKA buy) with concise and catchy visuals and messages.
When it comes to creating effective meta ads that convert, it's important to keep a curious mindset and try various strategies and types of creatives that people will see. We call it test & learn.
You may be thinking, what are the various types of ad creatives?
Read on to explore the top ten creatives that have proven to be successful for our green industry clients in capturing audience attention and driving conversions.
Top 10 Ad Creative Ideas
1. Media Hit:
One of the most powerful ways to build trust and credibility is by showcasing media hits and screenshots and encouraging folks to learn more. These visuals serve as social proof and demonstrate that reputable sources have recognized your product or service.
Tip: If you don’t have a media hit to share, why not? Have you launched a new product lately? Hosting an event? Those are newsworthy things to share as well.
2. UGC Single Testimonial: Problem//Solution:
User-generated content (UGC) is a valuable asset for advertising. In this type of ad, start by highlighting the problem your product solves. Then, introduce your product as the solution and show how life improves after using it.
Tip: Showcase real people using the product in a relatable and authentic manner, not in a super fancy setting, to make you and your company more approachable.
3. Features Point Out
Close-up shots of your product, along with highlights of its key features and benefits, can be highly effective. This type of ad allows potential customers to see the product up close and understand how it can enhance their lives.
Tip: In your point-outs, include user benefits, materials, and other helpful information. Numbers and stats can go a long way!
4. Founder's Story
People connect with stories, especially those of the founders behind a business. Share the benefits and origin of your product from the founders' perspective. Additionally, give a glimpse behind the scenes to explain why the business was started in the first place.
Tip: Ensure the founder's appearance and surroundings match the desired image in the video. Avoid confusion with user-generated content by dressing professionally and ensuring good lighting, enhancing credibility.
5. UGC Hook Compilations
Compile the best parts of single testimonials into a captivating video or image carousel. This type of ad showcases multiple satisfied customers and their positive experiences with your product.
Tip: Need more clips? Take a longer clip and splice it into smaller clips to weave throughout the compilation and add impact!
6. Unboxing/Product-Focused UGC
Highlight the product through unboxing videos or product-focused UGC, allowing potential customers to see the product in action and get a real sense of its quality and value.
Tip: Incorporating ASMR techniques such as gentle tapping, crinkling, and slow movements in your unboxing videos can enhance the sensory experience and hook your audience by further understanding the materiality of your product.
7. Post-it Note
Handwritten messages on post-it notes can be incredibly appealing. In the digital space, physical handwriting truly does catch the eye!
Tip: Craft a message that grabs attention and resonates with your target audience- keep it short and expressive!
8. TikTok Response
Leverage the comment bubble feature on TikTok to create response-style ads. This acknowledges viewers’ concerns, lets you respond, and gains trust between you and potential customers.
Tip: Keep the tone in the bubble casual and consider using capitalization, punctuation, and emojis to make the ad feel authentic and relatable. 😎
9. Before and After Ad
Showcase the transformation that your product offers through a before and after ad. This visual representation of the positive change your product brings can be highly persuasive.
Tip: Use a clear and visually striking layout to emphasize the contrast between the before and after scenarios. Side by side, before and after ads are clear and easy to understand!
10. Stepwise Ad
Break down the key benefits of your product or service into just a few concise points. Present them stepwise to make it easy for potential customers to understand why they should choose your offering.
Tip: Try using a voiceover along with this creative! Having someone take you step by step is great for keeping your audience engaged!
