The number one most consumed element of your ad is your creative.
If you want to get your audience’s attention you need great creative not copy. It’s the very first thing people notice, making it the most impactful element of your social ad.
According to Facebook, Creative can have a 50% impact on your performance.
It has more or less a 50% impact on your Estimated Action Rate and more or less a 10% impact on User Value. There’s an auction place for every single ad that gets delivered on Facebook. So as you’re scrolling, Facebook is running a ton of equations for which ad is going to get the best placement. You are essentially bidding for that placement.
For example, if Facebook realizes that the chances of a person purchasing from you are 99.99%, they will lead that person to your ad. However, if your creative is bad, Facebook will not send it to them. This is the equation used in the auction place. Your creative is the most valuable element of your social ad so it should be the top priority.
Simply put, it’s the most impactful variable an advertiser has manual control over.
If you want a high performing campaign then you need to have great creative that speaks to your audience.

Facebook has an 86% confidence that mixed assets such as images and videos will give you better results. Thus your brand should have a combination of both static images and video ads in order to boost performance.
The reason why is because you will be able to deliver a wider spectrum of creatives to your audience based on their mindset. So it’s good to have single images, carousels, long videos, and short videos for your ads. That way, you can give them a better user experience based on their preferences.
