Everyone loves something free, but they can also be skeptical of the offer if it’s not clear what they’re getting into. That’s why it’s important that anyone who views your ad immediately understands exactly the kind of value they’ll receive from a free trial or free gift. The power of free can also help you build trust with people and make them feel more comfortable signing up.
What Makes This Ad Great: This video ad has a homemade look to it, which helps to make it feel less like an ad and more like an organic video your friend might post. Lull shows a couple having a great time unwrapping their mattress, communicating just how easy it is to set up and enjoy your new bed. One thing they could have done to improve this ad? Include captions. As you can see from the GIF above, there’s no way to hear the voiceover if the sound is off.
