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! 

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.

Just think about it, many customers will shop different stores so they can find more product variety. Others might just want to buy something and be done with it. When you understand how different audiences interact with your ads you can create product images that speak to their specific needs. It’s important that everyone who visits your website comes away with a comprehensive understanding of the value your products can offer them.

Brand engagement is all about getting people emotionally invested in your company. When you forge these emotional relationships with your customers it’s much easier to move them down the marketing funnel towards an eventual sale. You can do this by finding a political or personal cause that’s important to your audience, or appealing to their likes and interests. Either way, make sure to use language that shows people exactly what’s at stake.
