Facebook ads without text???

7 replies
Anyone else have issues getting their point across on facebook ads without adding too much text? I hate that facebook keeps telling you to boost your post and then when you finally boost one it denies it for too much text. Any tips for building effective ads while staying under the 20% text limit? It's not like billboards along the road are just a pic with no message.

    Yeah that irritates a lot but i can understand why facebook does that Best would be look or create an image that fits your niche and has little or no text. Probably just link your product and you will be okay

    Yes, it can get frustrating. My advice is to find a good picture for the ad, but put no text at all on the photo. Put all of your text in the post. If you do that you should have no issues.

    Something you need to think about is that facebook is a social platform.

    People don't wake up and say what am I going to going to buy off of facebook today.

    I know one of the biggest facebook marketing experts and he never uses text in an image.

    He has always said that you don't want your post to look like an ad. Because people scroll through posts quickly and if it looks like an ad, they will pass over it.

    What he does is increase the contrast of the image, so it pops out at users as they are scrolling and catches their attention...stands out from the other images. So it grabs their attention and gets them to stop long enough to see what the post is about. He also tests multiple images.

      I think this suggestion from DIABL0 is on point.

      Good luck!
