IG Shops Not Set Up? You’re Missing Out!

Meta is pushing shops and a lot of stores that have them set up are seeing pretty great results.

Don’t believe us? Look at the responses to this tweet by @TaylorHoliday:

So what are you waiting for?

P.S. Meta has been handing out credit to run Shops ads. Get in touch with your FB marketing rep to ask for some if they haven’t offered!

This Brand Did 13x In Revenue Without Discounts This Black Friday. WHAT?

#FeaturedAd - Oliver Cabell

Brand: Oliver CabellCategory: FootwearFormat: Video

Caption: Black Friday Sale Is Here! 25% - 50% off with code BFCMHeadline: 25% - 50% Off Starts Now! 3,000+ five-star reviews.


Rushed holiday season? Have a thousand and one things to do? No problem.

Just take a video that’s already performed well in your account and add a sticker to it with your best offer. Voila!

In addition to the fact that this ad is easy to put together if you’re in a rush, it checks all the right boxes: the product's value is clearly highlighted, the ad uses PR features to showcase social proof and create FOMO, and the caption and headline spell out the offer clearly.

What we love about this ad? It doesn’t try hard. In fact, it looks like it doesn’t try AT ALL. The “almost ugly” sticker is so obvious it’s hard to miss, and makes the ad look less designed and more relatable. (Remember, pretty has little to do with how effective ads are!). We’re totally using this idea for some year-end prospecting.
