Best Practices to create your Ad creative and Ad message

Your Ad content and Ad creative should match your customer journey. A full-funnel approach allows you to meet each customer where they are and should continue to move, engage and nurture them through the funnel.

 

📝  RollWorks recommends:

      • Create 2 to 3 sets of Ads per funnel stage.
      • Refresh your ads every 3 months to prevent engagement decline due to ad fatigue.

As there are several stages in the marketing funnel, each stage should answer a different question for the customer and content should differ:

 

Creative recommendations for customer journey point 'UNAWARE'

Description: The prospect is unaware of your offering or brand.

Goal: Create awareness so that your customer becomes aware of your brand or product and starts exploring your company.

 

Types of Content & Landing Pages:

  • Introductory whitepaper 
  • Informational webinars
  • Infographics, blog posts
  • Upcoming event info

Examples of Aware Focused Creative

Ad Messaging: 

  • Branding & Awareness: High-level brand awareness creative that tries to introduce a completely new visitor to your company is key for this stage. Focus on WHAT you do and getting your brand name into their head, not HOW you do it or WHY a prospect should use it.
  • Video: It can be expensive to produce, but if your company has already created video assets that establish your brand, they can potentially be suitable for this stage of messaging.

CTA Examples:

  • Learn More
  • See How
  • Show Me How
    •  

 

Creative recommendations for customer journey point 'AWARE'

Description: The prospect is aware of your brand or product.

Ad Messaging: 

  • Content Focused: Now is a good time to start sharing content on your company has that a prospect might find useful, that may not necessarily directly relate to a purchase. E-books or white papers are good ideas.
  • Product Focused: Here is a good opportunity to share HOW your product does what it does, and what makes it special in the market by calling out things that will get a visitor to want to learn more and do more research.
  • Webinar Focused: This is also a potential opportunity to share. It's a good idea to make sure you also have non-webinar-focused ads so that you can share multiple messages to your audience to see which one resonates better.

CTA Examples:

  • Register Now
  • Download Now
  • Get the eBook
  • Show Me How
    •
