#FeaturedAd - Thursday Boot Company
Brand: Thursday Boot CompanyCategory: FootwearFormat: Video
WHY IT WORKS:
The video makes sense. How? By using plain speak. 🗣️
Thursday Boot Company’s video opens with a great shot that places its products in the outdoors. And within the first 5 seconds, the video does what other ads take longer to do — highlight quality and address concerns about price.
We’ve all been there. When we’re looking for boots for the outdoors, we’re looking for the best quality for the price we pay. By using both voice and text to highlight one primary message, the video leaves no scope for confusion.
It’s like saying what you see is what you get — no frills, no catch. The ad is minimalist, to the point, and functional, with the beautiful lifestyle footage quietly doing the rest of the heavy lifting.
#BrandedCatalog Spotlight - 2 Hounds Design
WHY IT WORKS:
The multi-image catalog format draws the eye — shoppers want to take a closer look.
Lifestyle images make it easy for shoppers to visualize their pets wearing the products, while product shots give a better look at the product itself.
Reviews are pulled in automatically, creating a sense of community (fellow pet-owners) and trust.
