For experiences - whether that’s retail or even UX(SaaS), we’ve found that“Texting” videos have had a great improvement over standard image ads. For example, this texting animated creative result in an 87.5% ROAS improvement compared to the image ads that had been running for over a month.
We know that testimonial ads work well, but comment-style testimonial ads outperformed other testimonial formats for eCommerce brands occasionally(even video UGC testimonials). These ads feature real reviews and use emojis to help them stand out in the feed resulting in an improved click-through-rate over traditional“quoted” or video UGC testimonial ads.
Explainer videos are a staple of Facebook & Instagram ads, but most people focus way too much on the LENGTH of an explainer video. We found short explainer videos work just as well, and in fact, it’s better to focus on the first three seconds.
You can see how watch time stacks up by customizing columns for video engagement.
FOMO ads in image and video format are the top performing creative. These ads focus on the exclusivity of products that continue to sell out — encouraging the consumer to buy while still in stock. On average, these ads improve ROAS by 123%.
It’s important to be mindful of frequency with these ads. If the audience is continuously seeing the same ad over and over, the ad will start to feel inauthentic.
