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.

Facebook’s ad rules dictate that an ad must contain more visuals than text. In fact, 80% of the ad should be an image or photo. So, let the right imagery speak for itself and use it to catch your audience’s attention. Canva hosts an amazing media library of over a million professional stock photos and illustrations to use on your design. Search using specific keywords or browse through various categories. There are plenty of free images in the library and premium ones only cost $1 for each one-time use.
In other words, if you’re aiming to get viewers to click over to your site in order to make a purchase, it would make sense to produce an ad featuring beautiful product photography. If, on the other hand, you were working towards building brand awareness, you might want to create an ad that motivates users to post your image. This means you have to know what your audience is like and what they would want associated with them as a representation of themselves. You could use an endorsement from an influencer or words and images that connect on an emotional level. Maybe add a hashtag or ask them to tag friends when sharing to compound its effectiveness.
With one of the largest pool of active users, relatively cheap advertising options, and the ability to create targeted and optimized ads, Facebook has become an advertising medium most businesses and brands can’t ignore.  The best Facebook ads are relevant, have a unique value proposition and have a clear call to action. Most of all, they are heavy on visuals and design.

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.

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.
