Look at this advert right here
Now as we know about creative visuals, let us see what an offer is.
An offer should contain an urgency for the customers. So that they feel like clicking on our desired action. Using action verbs so that people feel compelled with what we have to offer and they take action.
In this ad copy below, HAIR SALON has made urgency by mentioning the Limited Time offer.
Headline and Description
A headline must tell about your Call to Action, if they will click on the link what will they get. So mention your offer in this also, so that people are sure about the offer and will not be clickbait.
A description lies below the Headline. Which should lead to urgency backing the Headline.
This example shows the Description backing your main headline. The offer is consistent throughout.
CTA (Does this seem like too much work spent away from clients? We can handle it on your behalf, Email us at (–) )
Your image is the eye-catcher of your audience. If this is not engaging and amazing, your audience won’t stop and will scroll away. That is what we don’t need.
We can show our ad creative in these forms –
SINGLE IMAGE –
These were the examples of ad formats you can choose from!
Now as we have succeeded in making the customer take action. We must send him to a landing page where he can find the offer and get the mentioned discount.
But the gist is, we are going to ask for the email and phone number of the lead and respond to him within an hour.
To create Landing Pages the following sites can be helpful –
What should a Landing page look like?
The image and content of your landing page should mention the same things as your ad copy. Otherwise, your bounce rate will be high and no one will reach THANK YOU page.
Setting up the budget for your Ad is all in your hands. It is up to you, how much you will spend, it will bring results if you mention the above-mentioned points. Run your ads for at least a week and let people see it for quite a time to make your ad worth every dollar that went into it.
