  • Make your call to action (CTA) clear and compelling.
  • This tells your audience what the next step is and directs them to your website.
  • Examples of a call to action are “Sign-up Now,” “Book Now,” “Schedule a Service,” etc.
  • Avoid generic language such as “Read More” or “Learn More.”
  • Adding a CTA button can improve your ad performance and result in higher conversions.

Imagery Matters

  • Using high-quality images that tell what the ad promotes is essential for a successful digital campaign.
  • Focus on images that are bold, clean, and compelling that will stand out.
    • This is especially important for new users to capture their attention and remember your brand.
  • Thrive’s design team can help create high-quality images for your business’s digital campaign.

Use a Compelling Message

  • You don’t have a ton of copy space or time to capture your user’s attention; therefore, your message must be expressed clearly.
  • On many digital ad campaigns, ad copy length matters. Plus, it can directly impact a healthy click-through rate (CTR)
  • SmartBrief recommends 40 characters for your headline and 250 for the copy.
  • Make the most of your space available. 
  • Stick to messaging that encourages a call to action or incentivizes your user’s experience.

Keep it Fresh

  • Refresh your content frequently, so it doesn’t go stale.
  • Audience performance can drop 10 to 20% if your users continue to see the same ad.
  • Try rotating a few different creative versions and track their performance to stay aware of your best-performing ads.
