Creative approaches that work well

In addition to this, we have reviewed the creatives of campaigns that climbed the ranks faster than others this month. Our summary of winning approaches can help you build the right communication with the audience and maximize conversions in the growing markets.

For campaigns in the Healthy Living and Medical Health categories, the best approach would be to clearly show the problems the product can solve and talk about the ease of use and efficiency of the promoted products. In copies, emphasize convenience, organic ingredients, or other advantages of the solution.

As for the visual part, choose the local popular products with some unusual details: minor defects, non-standard angles, etc. For Mexico, the best-performing visuals include strange-looking liquids and beverages. For Italy, it’s better to choose recipes, mixing bowls, squeezing lemons, etc.

You should be careful when choosing images for campaigns in Arabic countries: visuals that include females not wearing hijab can be perceived as frivolous or even blocked by publishers in some countries.

When promoting Shopping offers, clearly show the product and discounts. It has been proven to be an effective method to tell how much users can save with the offer and direct them to the selling landing page that allows instant purchases.

Campaigns under the Personal Finance category receive more clicks and conversions with the storytelling approach, particularly success cases and ‘rags to riches’ stories. For Germany and France, we recommend using moderate technology images, whereas for Italy it can be effective to add unusual and emotionally-charged visuals.
