Here are some tips for your Facebook advertisement images to help them stand out on peoples’ news feeds, Facebook Stories and instant articles.
1. Use Faces When Possible
This is particularly relevant if you work in the services or leisure sector. Facebook state that ads with faces in receive more engagement. Most people engage with a face when they first meet someone and in an online context it helps create welcoming context.
5. Testing Different Image Angles
If you or your photographer are taking pictures specifically for a campaign, try different versions of a similar image to see what brings the most sales or conversions. A different photographic angle on a product or subject with a good focal point can often draw the viewer’s attention. Incorporating your company logo into any free / uncluttered space on an image can also help with your organisation’s brand recognition.
6. Don’t Be Afraid To Use Your Logo or Marque On An Image
A side-effect of Facebook recommending that you avoid using excessive text is people thinking they shouldn’t use their logo or branding on an image. If you have a concise title and text that are separate from the image, using your logo can only help increase your organisation’s profile.
7. Avoid Excessive Text Directly On An Image
Facebook themselves recommend avoiding excessive text on an image, although they no longer penalise ads that do this. The only reason you should ever have a text-focused image is if the image has little or no photographic content. When using text directly on the image avoid using difficult to read fonts such as certain script-style fonts that can be illegible on mobile / handheld devices.
