Creative approaches that work well

We know it may be tough to find the right advertising messages and visuals, so we also reviewed creatives in campaigns that climbed the ranks faster than their peers. Here’s our summary of winning creative approaches in the growing niches.

Breaking into the top, consider dynamic images that convey emotions. For example, this Thai family in the market spotted something interesting and the father decided to take a picture of it, but we don’t see exactly what it is. The photo ignites curiosity and makes viewers want to find out what they were looking at.

Some unusual visual effects with reflections or mirror magic also work well. Observe this example of advertising discounts for two pairs of glasses; the ad creative shows the mirrored image of a girl wearing glasses, thus alluring a viewer to find out how their look would be different in these glasses. Plus, discount announcements and fair pricing always bring solid click-through rates.

The same applies to magic neon elements or blurred images. The first ones draw attention and illuminate certain objects for the audience to focus on. When viewing something blurred, a user will want to solve the mystery and fix the picture, ultimately ending up clicking on the ad.

The most effective creative titles are the ones that make enticing promises to which you deliver on after a user clicks. For example, hook user curiosity with an announcement “8 Superfoods You Probably Have in Your Fridge” and then on your pre-lander or landing page you can fully describe how these products can be incorporated into the everyday diet.

Hands picking up certain items, performing actions, or putting out something also convert well; there’s this feeling that now we will receive something or watch some life hack. Finally, if you want to use metaphors on your visuals, we highly recommend choosing ones commonly readable, such as ‘elephant in the room’, ‘needle in a haystack’, ‘burning bridges’, etc.
