Provide As Many Creatives As Possible:
You can provide up to 15 short/long headlines, 5 ad texts, and 16 images. Theoretically, you don’t have to use the total number of these assets. However, we recommend using as many creatives as possible so that the algorithm has several options for different combinations of your content. This supports the algorithm in creating the most relevant and individual ads possible for individual users and has a positive effect on the performance of your ad. Microsoft recommends at least eight to ten unique headings. For the same reasons, we also recommend using all four aspect ratios (1.91:1, 1:1, 1:2, and 4:1) and different motifs for the image materials.
Provide Diverse Content:
Use a combination of short and long headlines to make the most of the space on each device. Ensure not to use similar wording and at least one brand title and to use relevant keywords.
Use Explicit Content:
Avoid repetition and use varied descriptions. List the product’s or service’s benefits and features, call to action, and provide important information such as shipping and returns.
Multimedia ads are proving to be an indispensable ad format for generating more attention and visibility for your brand. At the same time, the visual representation supports you in presenting or explaining your product or service. This ad format is an effective way of achieving your goals, especially for products that require explanation or for target groups that need a lot of information when making decisions. In any case, we recommend that you test the new ad format. Meaningful images, in combination with appealing headlines, are eye-catchers – especially in the search network.
