It’s Christmas time and it’s all about sharing and giving, get the viewers and people involved, offer a limited invitation to your online business, get the people buzzing and talking. There are lots of competitors out there so maybe promote a “one time offer” or a little friendly competition for people to get excited about. Remember to keep your posts and ads simple, make it big and crazy and don’t be afraid. Use images and colours that will stand out, this will create attention and therefore viewers will more likely stop and look at your post and read what you’re about and selling.

Here’s how to get started…

Select your format

Pic Ads – This is a great format, and properly one of the most popular ones to use today. It’s important to remember when using this format, to choose an image or your own that is really going to stand out and make sure that is relatable and easily understandable. The consumer or viewer needs to know exactly what message you’re trying to promote or what it is that you’re trying selling. For example:

Nike ad

Nike – An image that clearly displays what their product is about. Promoting their new watch that tracks your running, speed and pace.

Video Ads – Creating a video is great, remember this format is time-consuming and could possibly be money taken from you. You will need to come up with a concept and make a video that’s also not too lengthy, anything over 2 mins can cause the viewer to skip next. This is important as you need to provide the viewer with key details of who you are, what your selling, and how they can benefit it from it. On a positive note really take advantage of this format if you wish to choose it. Really think of the images and sounds that you will be using, background music etc. For example:

video facebook ad

Tip: When creating a video make sure you use an image that will catch people’s attention and a catching heading.This will gain more attention and will more likely get the viewer to hit “play”.

Carousel Ads – A strip of images that allow viewers to swipe through to gain further information. Carousel Ads are personally my favourite. Easy and simple like the Pic ads, however, can give just give as much information as a video ad, but without the time and fuzz that goes into them. For example:

Toyota carrousel ad

Toyota – display multiple images of their car, showing exactly how durable and reliable their product is, no matter what the circumstances.

Create and build your ad using your goals and chosen format

Now that you have chosen your desired format to advertise or promote your business on, you can now start creating and building your advert. It’s important to get yourself familiarised with all the tools and features, click here to try for yourself. Remember for every advert you advertise you need to make sure that all your ads relate to one another, and people can recognise that this is your company e.g colour palette, photographic style, text.

instagram ads

All these elements should resemble you and your company. Try to create your own style and your own signature look. For example:

Facebook post for a physical store:
