How to Create Effective Instagram Ads

With more than 500 million active monthly Instagram users and some of the world’s biggest brands using the network, it has become a great marketing opportunity for businesses of any size. Plus, with the introduction of Instagram ads, businesses now have the opportunity to scale their efforts considerably regardless of how big or how small their advertising budget is. There are many benefits to using Instagram ads. First, when you create Instagram ads you can simultaneously publish that ad on Facebook too, allowing you to save time while reaching more people. Plus, you can set up Instagram campaigns very quickly, in fact in just a few clicks. Lastly, thanks to Instagram ads you can grow a following much faster than you normally would, and therefore enabling you to benefit from more traffic and more social proof. In order to set up Instagram ads, you will need three things. A Facebook advertising account, a Facebook page and an Instagram account. Once you have all three, login to your Facebook account, click on the drop down menu on the top right hand side, and click on “create ads”. You can select from any campaign objective, apart from “store visits” as this campaign objective doesn’t allow you to set up Instagram ads. Once you’ve selected your Instagram campaigns objective, Facebook will redirect you to the “ad set” level, which is where you choose who you want to target based on their location, age, gender, language, demographics, behaviors and interests. At the ad set level it’s also where you decide on your budget and more importantly where you want your ads to be published. Under “placements” if you chose “automatic placements”, Facebook will show your ads where they’re likely to perform best. However, if you want to just display your ads on Instagram, select “edit placements” and untick all the platforms, except from Instagram. Then, name your ad set so you can easily find it later in “ads manager”. You then reach the last stage of the Instagram campaigns creation process and have the choice between 5 types of ads: Carousel, single image, single video, slideshow or canvas. Note that the recommended image size for an Instagram ad is 1080 x 1080 pixels and if you plan to advertise a video, it should not be longer than 60 seconds and the file size of your video should not exceed 30MB. Then, add the url you want people to be redirected to when they click on your ad, the text and the call to action. Ads on Instagram look like any other posts on the social network, but they include a “sponsored” tag on the top right hand side as well as a call to action tab on the bottom right hand side of the image. Another secret to increase your chances of making your ads on Instagram successful, is split testing. Split testing, also known as “A/B testing” is the process of running a variety of different ads, promoting the same thing, to see what works best. There are many things you can test, such as the images you use, the text you write for your ad, the call to action and even your targeting. A third secret to increase your chances of making your ads successful is through the use of carefully selected images. Try and avoid using stock photo images as they usually are not original enough and have been used too many times and therefore don’t stand out. Instead, images that are high quality, that are unique, interesting and attention-grabbing tend to perform much better. Plus, try and avoid adding any branding to your image as it will make your ad look too much like an ad instead of looking like a standard post. Lastly, to increase your chances of making your ads successful is by effectively combatting ad fatigue. Ad fatigue is when your audience has seen your ad so many times, they don’t notice it anymore. The ad has become way too familiar with them, and stops grabbing their attention. What this means, is that you can experience great results from an ad and then that same ad that brought you all the traffic and leads you were hoping for, stops performing. This is why, if you run Instagram ads, it is critical you micro manage each ad. I hope you’ve enjoyed this video on how to create effective Instagram ads.
