Get Access to the Best Content on High Court Enforcement
Let’s be honest if you’re spending even a penny on advertising, you should be considering Facebook. Why? Of all the social media platforms, Facebook has the most sophisticated advertising system. This is reasonable. By far the more people use Facebook than any other social media platform. They’ve also invested time, money, and resources into developing an advertising system that is both effective and simple for their clients.
However, if you want to advertise on Facebook, you’ll face more competition than if you advertise on a smaller, more niche network. This means you’ll need to make your adverts stand out from the crowd. You must do it correctly, with your advertising being designed to the correct sizes and satisfying all of Facebook’s requirements.
That’s why it’s critical to use the proper Facebook ad sizes to ensure your content looks great. To skip forward, use the jump links below!
Facebook ad sizes change more frequently than the menu at Starbucks.
Facebook likes to keep digital marketers on their toes by introducing new ad formats and regularly updating the dimensions and specs of existing pictures and videos and for good reason.
One out of every five dollars is spent on Facebook advertising. The platform’s 2 billion monthly users spend an average of 53 minutes each day on the site, which is more than Snapchat (33 minutes) and Instagram (32 minutes).
If you want to reach eyeballs online, Facebook is the place to go. That means they’ll continually be trying to figure out how to draw in customers.
However, with all of the changes, how are you going to create eye-catching commercials that would woo customers?
Well now you can, with this handy cheat sheet!
Facebook gas one recommendation for all its advertisers | when designing an Ad design for mobile-first.
Facebook recommends uploading a video with square (1:1) or vertical (4:5, 9:16 and 16:9) aspect ratios, to maximize compatibility on both desktop and mobile screens. The platform also recommends keeping videos short (15 seconds or less) and designing videos that work with and without sound (by enabling captions).
For best results, stick to the following specs for video ads |
Use MP4, GIF or MOV format, with a maximum file size of 4GB, and a maximum length of 241 min.
In-stream videos and Facebook videos that appear in your newsfeed are not the same as Facebook video feeds. When a user clicks on a video in their feed, it opens in a player alongside other video streams. These advertisements can be found in certain video broadcasts.
Recommended: Highest resolution available (at least 1080 x 1080 px)
Your customers want to see what they’re purchasing before making a purchase.
If you want to get your audience’s attention on Facebook, you should use photos in your advertising, particularly ones that show off your product or brand in a distinctive, eye-catching way.
However, creating picture advertising for Facebook might be difficult. Different ad widths are required for different ad destinations (newsfeed, Messenger, the right column) and display formats (mobile, desktop). You may now upload different pictures for different display formats in Facebook’s Ads Manager and preview how an ad will look before it goes live.
For best results, stick to the following specs for image ads |
For all image ads, Facebook recommends that you upload “the highest resolution image available” in either. JPG or. PNG format cropped to a supported aspect ratio.
Remember those right column ads are a desktop-only format, but they “may appear in other areas of the site” too.
If you’re using a still image in your Facebook Stories ad, Facebook recommends keeping around 14 per cent of the image, or 250 pixels, “free from texts and logos” at the top and bottom. This keeps it from being obscured by things like call-to-action buttons and your profile icon.
Carousels allow you to show up to ten images or videos in a single ad without the user needing to travel to a new page.
The main Facebook feed, the right column, instant articles, Facebook Marketplace, the Facebook Audience Network, and Facebook Messenger are all sites where carousels can be found. However, all carousel formats have the same picture and video specifications.
Expandable Carousel allows you to display three images in a single ad on Facebook Stories. When a person visits your storey, they’ll be able to tap on the card to reveal two more cards.
Collections are a sort of ad that allows people to browse and buy things right from their Facebook feed. A Collection usually begins with a cover image or video and continues with a series of product photographs.
When a viewer scrolls over your collection, you may select to have your video autopay. Instant Experience, a full-screen experience designed to drive traffic directly to your product pages, will open when you click the video. Instant Experience advertising can include buttons, carousels, photographs, text, and video. When you scroll through a video or audio clip in the app, it will immediately start playing.
The first media asset in your Instant Experience will be the cover image or video that shows up in your collection ad.
Facebook offers a variety of ways you can advertise on the platform. We have covered most of them, and listed their sizes and specifications, in this article. Effectively, Facebook paid ads are an official way you can “beat” their algorithm. Facebook gives your paid ads priority over regular organic Facebook posts in many places. Locations where you can use paid Facebook ads are:
In conclusion, when launching a new campaign, you first need to define your objective. For example, it could be Conversions, Catalog sales, Store visits, Traffic, Video views, Engagement, Reach, Brand awareness, Lead generation, Messages, or App installs.
Then, you can select suitable ad formats and placements accordingly. Afterwards, in order for you to achieve optimal results, you should use the right Facebook ad sizes and Facebook ads specs for your creatives and keep your ad copy below the maximum length.
