The best ads on Facebook drive sales. Strong copywriting is an essential part of a Facebook ad that drives sales. You must write a clear and conversational headline to get people to click on your ad. Make sure that you write to your target audience, there is no need to be overly broad when you have a selected target.
Don’t forget that your copy needs to compliment your image, if there is a disconnect between your image and your copy, your ad will not be effective. Have some fun with your images and consider trying this: if the copy is literal, make the visual playful or if the visual is playful, make the copy literal. This creates contrast and interplay between the art and copy which grabs attention.
Finally, a clear easy to understand call to action will drive sales. You can only have 1 call to action. When you are fuzzy on your call-to-action people do not respond. Clarity is a must and so is honesty. You need to be upfront with your ad about what you are selling. No one likes a bait and switch ad. Now you are ready to make a great Facebook ad.
