Creative approaches that work well

To help you make the most out of native traffic in these niches, we compiled a short overview of winning creative approaches.

For the Medical Health campaigns in the Czech Republic, it is worth trying questions in headlines and photos of fruits or vegetables taken from unusual angles. Targeting Italy, you can easily tap into the Family and Relationship category with creatives that show stylish individuals, romantic couples or recognizable love symbols.

For campaigns targeting Russia, look for the visuals of recognizable local things, such as commonly used gear, furniture, tableware, etc., and appeal to the cost-saving efficiency and consumers’ propensity to save some money. For Shopping offers in Germany, advertisers should clearly show the product itself and mention discounts if any.

Based on the actual campaign performance, emotional headlines combined with images showing objects that are not easily identifiable at first glance work the best for the Healthy Living campaigns in Canada. We also suggest using strict business photos for the Personal Finance offers in Indonesia and showy, flamboyant images with loud accents to promote the Events and Attractions campaigns in Thailand.
