How-To's

Instructions

  1. Before generating a creative, make sure you have the necessary media asset files uploaded in the platform. To do this, on the sidebar, navigate to Ads > Images or Ads > Video. To learn more about asset management, read this article here.
  2. Next, from Publisher, use the sidebar on the left to navigate to Ads > Create Creatives.
  3. Start off by giving your ad a name. We suggest following a structured naming convention that will allow for easy identification and analysis after the ad has gone live.
  4. Apply any appropriate tags to your ad. 
  5. Note that the naming and tagging steps are optional and do not have to be completed before moving on. You can always leave them blank for now and move on with creating the ad first.
  6. Select your Type of creative you are looking to generate. Ad Creatives will be used only for advertising purposes, while Page Post can be published to your FB page as either a public post or dark post.
  7. Now select the Campaign Objective for which you are making this ad creative for. For example, if you are looking to publish the newly generated ads to a conversion focused campaign, select the “Conversions” objective here. This will determine which ad formats are available to be created for the given campaign objective.
  8. Select the corresponding Facebook and Instagram pages you want this creative to be associated with.
  9. Select which Ad Format you would like to generate. These options will be dynamically updated based on the campaign objective you’ve chosen in step 6.
  10. After this, you can generate a single image or video ad, a carousel ad, or an instant experience
