3 Ways to Optimize Your Ad Creative for Mobile

facebook ads Sep 11, 2019

Knowing the importance that the mobile phone currently has in our lives and also the good results that we are having in the ads seen from mobile, I wanted to make a list of the main tips that you should keep in mind so that your campaign has excellent results.

3 Ways to Optimize Your Ad Creative for Mobile

1. Turn static images into video Ads and can work with sound on and off

According to a recent Facebook study, where they watched the audience's attention from mobile devices and saw that people's eyes focused more on video ads compared to static ones. This means that video ads are a great opportunity for companies to capture attention and generate brand awareness and conversions. Using the Slideshow option directly from Facebook is a very simple and quick way to create a video.

The visualization of the videos occurs in different parts of the day and in various environments, so we must take into account the option that the videos have sound and that they do not have it and...

How to spy on your Competitor’s Facebook Ads

The feature I'm going to talk about in this post is not new (was released a couple of months back). However, on daily conversations with E-Commerce Owners and marketers, I noticed the vast majority of them still don't know about this easy and free trick.

Since all the Cambridge Analytica scandal was uncovered, which had its decisive or critical point on March 2018, Facebook is working on being more transparent. That's one of the main reasons why the Info and Ads section was added on Facebook Fan pages. The era of "dark posts" is close.

Going straight to the point, if you want to spy on your competitor's Facebook Ads, go to their fan page and on the right side column, look at Page Transparency (normally the last one) -> See more.

By clicking "Ads From This Page" you will see the latest Ads of your competitor.

Clear history: the change in privacy that will impact Facebook ads

facebook facebook ads May 20, 2019

As it was announced more than a year ago, Facebook will launch in the months to come a new privacy feature called Clear History. This was a direct response to the repercussions generated after the Cambridge Analytica where the European authorities demanded a more intense focus on users data privacy.

The Clear History feature is designed to deliver more transparency for users, showing them a list of the apps and websites they have visited that employ Facebook business tools like the Facebook Pixel, SDK and API.

Impact on advertising

It is not clear yet when it will be released and how easy it will be for users to implement Clear History; so there are a lot of questions yet. Far from being an obstacle in the digital marketing world, this could be seen as an opportunity to design strategies more creative and innovative.

The feature itself will allow a stricter separation between the internet browsing and Facebook profiles for the users that choose so. In a blog post, the company...

The Role of Facebook Ads in 2019

 

As many of your have already realized: The CPMs are drastically going up and up. So will Facebook Ads still be a profitable channel in the next months and years? 

Well, first of all one has do understand what is going on: 

On the one hand there are always more and more big companies like Unilver, Henkel or Johnson&Johnson who put their huge marketing budgets into Social Media. On the other hand the average Facebook user spends less and less time on Facebook. 

This is of course a terrible combination because the CPMs is determined by supply and demand, and there is consequently less supply for impressions (people spend less time on FB) but much more demand for it (big companies put their budget into it).

If this sound familiar to you and you want to know the solution to this dilema, then check out my 3min video in this blog!
