Did Your Ad Make The List? 3 Instagram Ads We Love (And Why)

We know it’s the holidays, and Digital Marketing life is busy as ever, but our hosts Molly Pittman and John Grimshaw, have carved out 20 minutes to do a little Ad Critique session to share with you (because who doesn’t love and need that)? Listen to this episode to hear who’s Ads impressed our seasoned hosts. Plus, to make it even more helpful to you, Molly and John share what to do to take each Ad to the next level.

Plus, you will learn:

  • When making your Creative as ‘native’ as possible is important (and when it’s not so essential).
  • How re-positioning can help you stay out of trouble with Facebook and reach people more effectively.
  • When you need to be collecting footage of the end-user of your product (and not just the person making the purchase).
