Facebook Dynamic Ads

Dynamic product ads allow you to target customers who have recently visited your website and browsed key product pages, but left before completing a purchase. This is typically a great audience to target because of their elevated interest in the product and intent to purchase. With dynamic product ads, you can create personalized ads that show recent visitors the product’s they’ve recently viewed and similar products they might be interested in looking at. These can be shown to recent visitors in their Facebook and Instagram feeds.

Old Vs New Creative Testing

Old Creative Testing

The old way of testing Facebook ad creatives for success was riddles with inefficiencies and hurdles.

  1. Very time consuming to setup
  2. Required larger budgets if you wanted results sooner
  3. 10’s if not 100’s of combinations had to be created manually
  4. Hard to gauge results
  5. Not the most controlled experiment
  6. Ads would compete with themselves

New Creative Testing

Now a days we have Facebook dynamic creative ads. Which is by far the best way to determine which ad creative will convert the best.

  1. Less than 15 min to setup
  2. Controlled experiment
  3. Facebook algorithm handles the delivery of ads
  4. Clear results and winning combination
  5. No more competing with yourself
  6. Only one ad needs to be created
