#FeaturedAd - Juna
Category: Nutritional Supplements
Format: Single Image (Feed)
WHY IT WORKS:
This ad really understands its target audience.
And uses social proof like a boss.
Ask any woman with kids what she could really do with more of and the answer is very likely to be sleep.
So if a supplement reliably promises better sleep — both the real review and the fact that it’s been featured in Forbes magazine help reinforce credibility — we’re definitely going to try it.
After all, the side effects are all so good.
Faster cell regeneration and no more tired eyes? Where should we pay?

#BrandedCatalog Spotlight - Healthspan
Category: Nutritional Supplements
Template type: Background removed with product USPs
WHY IT WORKS:
An eye-catching template that uses transparent product images and a gradient in the background to stand out in shoppers’ feeds.
The template maps key product metadata, essential to convey the benefits of supplements.
Instead of showing just product images, USPs help differentiate these supplements from others in the market.
Aggregated 5-star review count is mapped to showcase social proof.
