Steal These Facebook/Instagram Ads To Drive Conversions For Your Ecommerce Brand (Part 1)

By Myles Pindus, Associate Digital Specialist, Metric Digital

In our previous post, we broke down our company’s proprietary advertising taxonomy, based on best practices in digital marketing.

Through that strategic framework, your brand learned how to create the right ads that meet the right customers at the right time and drive results. 

As a follow up to that taxonomy, our next few posts are going to bridge the “what” and “why” of performance creative with the ever important “how.”

Today, we’ll dig into the first six (of twelve) categories of Ad Creative Type:

  1. Lifestyle
  2. Product
  3. Features
  4. Social Proof
  5. Testimonial
  6. Illustration

Please note: Each creative type has six format options: Static Image, Post Production Motion, Stop Motion Video, Filmed Video, Image Carousel, and Video Carousel, of which we’ll share a variety.
