#FeaturedAd - Innvictus

Brand: Innvictus
Category: Footwear
Format: Single Image (Feed)

WHY IT WORKS:

Want a simple yet eye-catching ad creative?

Here’s a simple idea that showcases your products to great effect and doesn’t need crazy discounts or a production team to get it right.

What’s great about this format is that you can use it with any products you have (or even remove backgrounds from all your images in a dynamic ad) so long as you have PNG images of your products and some time to play with fonts!

Use it to promote specific offers or collections, or your New Arrivals for an ad that is as attractive as it is uncomplicated!

#BrandedCatalog Spotlight - Brümate

Brand: Brümate
Category: Drinkware
Template type: 2-image with rotating USPs

WHY IT WORKS:

  • The template replaces white backgrounds from product images with an attractive, outdoorsy background that makes the dynamic ad stand out.

  • Black Friday text and cut prices are added to draw attention to the offer.

  • Brümate’s logo is added to the template to improve brand recall.
