If you’re going to make Instagram videos, you should establish your brand as a presence on the app itself. This means having an active page with regular posts that generate traffic and conversation. Depending on your type of business, you can now have an online store within the Instagram app itself, making it easy to link to from your Instagram videos.
What Makes This Ad Great: FeetUp didn’t do anything fancy with this ad: they just showed their product in action. And when you have an innovative new product targeting a passionate audience, sometimes that’s all you need. Especially when that product lends itself to a visual demonstration, like the FeetUp Trainer. Any yogi who has trouble with handstands will instantly recognize how this product can help improve their practice.
Product launch ads are a great candidate for the image or carousel ad template. Use it to tell a story about the making of a new product and highlight different aspects of it, either through high-quality, featured image or a series of images in your carousel. The copy for these ads should drive home the real-world value your new product or service provides. Make Facebook users as excited for the release as you are!
Driving attendance for an event is much easier when you use Facebook ads to increase awareness of it. These ads pique your target audience’s interest by featuring social proof from people who have attended in the past. They can instill a little FOMO by describing how your event setting is unique and make it easy for people to decide at a glance if they are “Interested” in your event by centering the details of time and place.
While carousel and collection ads are the obvious choice for these kinds of situations, a dynamic product ad or Instant Experience ad can also work well. Regardless, when featuring a set of products, make sure that each one is visually distinct from the other and includes its own headline and CTA (which should be specific to the individual product).

What Makes This Ad Great: Two athletes hanging from a hot-air balloon, doing tricks with a soccer ball hundreds of feet up in the air? This ad has a great concept that demands your attention. Add in the fact that it’s filmed with a GoPro, and you can almost feel your stomach starting to lurch. Under Armour actually partnered with GoPro for this ad, and the combination works great for both brands.
What Makes This Ad Great: This simple video ad from Stitch Fix catches your eye with fast-moving images displaying great-looking outfits for different situations: day at the office, weekend getaway, watching the game, and more.

Online shopping is a distinctly different experience than shopping in a physical store. Instead of flipping through racks you’re scrolling through pages, instead of meandering the aisles for groceries you’re adding individual items to your cart. Carousel and Collection ads help you replicate the feeling of shopping in a physical store by giving your audience a way to see multiple products in a single ad.
