Want to Learn the Secret to Successful Facebook Ads?

Utilizing Facebook ads generally is one of the most expedient and effective ad platforms for getting visitors to your sites, offers, and for various other purposes for your website. A Facebook Ad campaign is a snap to put together, has great demographic targeting tools, and can be up in a matter of minutes. One thing to understand is that the solution to getting the best results and return on investment (ROI) is via the use of the most relevant and effective images available. It has been shown that imagery is 70-89 percent of the success or failure of a Facebook ad campaign. Let’s look at some useful ways to get the most from your Facebook ad images.

5 Awesome Tips for Facebook Ad Images

Creating an ad that makes a real impact and statement for your product or services is a matter of standing out from the rest. Here are five ways to do just that!

  1. Use high quality stock images – As your images are going to end up very small, be sure you’re buying from a reputable resource. Fotolia and iStockPhoto are two of our faves. The XS size of available images will undoubtedly be fine, as even these will be cut down to the size of a postage stamp (110×80 pixels).
  2. Crop to deliver impact – Crop your photos closely to spotlight the most important aspect of your ad. Cropping faces from the eyes to mouth is the most impactful technique for riveting people images. Also, be sure that your model’s eyes have life. When using product images, get close!
  3. Choose eye-catching colors – Using bright, visually arresting images can do wonders for your click-thru rates. So many people opt to blend in with the pervasive Facebook blue, and thus consign their ads to a form of “banner blindness”.
  4. Choose the best looking images you can find! – Unless you are going for a certain statement, choose the most attractive photos you can find. People are attracted to beauty. Period. This is not to say that sometimes beauty can’t be trumped by cute, funny or outrageous.
  5. Use humor when you can – All of us love a good laugh. If you have the opportunity to inject humor into your ad, don’t miss it! This will definitely result in a higher clickthrough rate!
