There’s a reason why 52% of marketing professionals say video is the best type of content. For one, 500 million people watch videos on Facebook every day. That ’s a lot of people. And, if you didn’t know, online shoppers who view demo videos are a whopping 1.81x more likely to make a purchase than those who don’t.

But it takes more than just patching together a few moving images to get that highly coveted conversion rate that everyone talks about. Here are a few things you might be doing wrong when it comes to your Facebook Video Ads from the people who know how to do it right (hint hint – that’s us, Little Cloud Productions!). Here's 3 tips to improve your video ads.

1. Way Too Much Text

We all have a ton of information to tell our customers. It almost feels never-ending we are so excited to share news and product details and a little about who we are. And that’s great! That said, it must be clear and consolidated to one point per video. Don’t cram too much text into each video or viewers will get overwhelmed and stop watching. Also, make sure it doesn’t move to quickly. You don’t want to waste a perfectly good idea on text that flies by. Not only is it a red flag to have too much text due to the difficulty of viewers reading and digesting it fast enough, they simply don’t want to. If your audience is spending a moment thinking about the fact that they are reading something, you’ve lost ’em.

A good rule of thumb is to write a maximum of 1 sentence per 3 seconds. When using Promo we will even give you a little nudge should you over-write your video captions.


2. Mis-chosen Music

Music that doesn’t add to the feeling of your video content is a big no-no in the world of ad creation. This goes back to publishing content that elicits a strong feeling. Use the power of music to make a more professional and complete video that can excite, inspire and empower your viewers. Choosing the right piece of music can add to the emotional response as well as make sure the quality is at its highest. You want to look like the big brands after all.

With all that talk about the power of your musical selection, remember that 85% of Facebook video is watched on mute. That is to say, don’t rely only on your sound choice to tell the story of your video. You want to ensure that your content item works soundless and the value only increases when a viewers clicks sound – on.


3. No Logo

A great video takes effort. Don’t waste your hard work and exceptional content by not including your logo and making sure everyone that sees your ad knows it’s YOU that created it. Not only is it necessary to brand your video asset as your own, it also makes the video look more professional and thus work better in your marketing efforts. Besides, it’s a one-click operation so why not?

Tell us you didn’t add your logo to your video and not that you don’t have a logo all together! This is a must. If you’ve been tight on cash and the logo creation process keeps falling to the bottom of the list, not anymore. There are loads of affordable logo creation tools online, like Fiverr and Logo Makr, that are perfect for your website and video ad needs.
