🥇 Facebook ad examples with proven results
An ad may look great, but who cares how good it looks if it didn’t convert? For that reason, we wanted to start off with great Facebook ads that our team has actually run so we can talk about real results.
The following ads are all ones we’re proud to say brought our clients success.
1. Double Good Virtual Fundraising
You know an ad campaign is good when the brand literally ends up selling out of the product. Whoops. A 62% increase in conversions and 39% decrease in CPA tends to have that effect.
We hit those positive results by using customized ad sets to make all imagery and copy hyper-relevant to a specific target audience. Want to know what our other secret was? The Facebook Power 5. Read the full case study here.
When Covid-19 hit, Sifted needed to get the word out. Their grocery delivery service could be a huge help to so many people during such a tough time.
By focusing ad copy and visuals on the variety of items they stock and their next day contact-free pickup or delivery we saw a 5,100% increase in conversions and a 4,232% increase in revenue.
3. Brain Sensei
Brain Sensei has positive numbers all around with this campaign of ads. They saw a 382% increase in ROAS, a 31% increase in conversions, and a 31% increase in revenue.
KlientBoost helped test variations to find what worked best including copy. We made the limited-time offer stand out with emojis and added the offer into the actual creative.
DARTdrones took their business to the next level. As a result of these Facebook ads we increased conversions by 223% and decreased the CPA by 65%.
It was all about working smarter, not harder. The optimization grew the conversion rate by 135% and captured more clicks than ever before with a 400% increase in traffic. Read the full case study here.
5. Best Self Co
Sometimes the time of year really matters when it comes to your promotions, and the ad surrounding this intimacy deck shows that.
During the month of January, directly ahead of Valentine’s Day in mid-February, this ad saw an 11% increase in return on ad spend (ROAS).
What’s different? Our messaging about using it for “date night” was much more effective than other ads that were only highlighting the “reignite spark” messaging. A lot of longtime couples forget to take time for themselves, so this calls out an easy, fun way to get that done.
6. Still Novel
This Still Novel ad saw a 47% drop in cost per action (CPA) and a 52% increase in ROAS.
This ad’s testimonial combined with the copy talking about how fast and easy the service is gets people excited to buy.
Scary map, I know. But why did this work so well? Well, it’s foolish to assume that recent events don’t affect recent campaigns. And the truth is that COVID-19 is playing a big role in advertising during these stressful times.
The results: an 8% decrease in CPA – and that’s coming from an already very healthy campaign
The results? 27% decrease in CPA and 76% increase in ROAS.
This ad hits all the value props that their ideal customer is looking for: 100% guarantee of authenticity, heavily discounted retail price, and a lovely display of the product to show both quality, color, and size.
A good reason to learn from this bad boy: 37% decrease in CPA!
What do we like about this ad? It hits all potential entrepreneur questions: business with a mission, huge revenue potential, fastest growing and successful franchise in the U.S., and also getting exclusive rights for your country.
136% increase in ROAS. I don’t even need to emphasize how impressive that is, do I?
What’s one of the biggest negatives with protein powders? It tastes bad. And this ad goes against that and talks about how great the new flavor tastes – calling out and immediately solving one of the product’s primary pain points.
And it’s all brought together with that fantastic headline: “Taste The Gains.”
11. Yoga International
This Yoga International ad saw a 29% decrease in CPA.
What works? Polling ads! This is a newer ad type, but it feels organic and gives the user the opportunity to engage with the ad in a fun way. This ad also gets a huge value proposition of a long free trial along with the sense of urgency from the “limited-time offer.”
🏆 Facebook ad examples by ad format / creative type
Videos on Facebook generate up to 8 billion views each day, including video ad creative. This is why Facebook video ads can be so powerful for grabbing your audience’s attention and getting them to take the action you’re looking for.
These video ads range from basic slideshows to full productions, and you can choose the style that works for your brand. And if you’re looking to hire actors, check out Backstage. (Full disclosure – we work with them.)
Check out these video Facebook ad examples to learn more about how you can be using video in your digital advertising strategy.
⭐ Best Facebook image ad examples
With Facebook being such a visual platform, there’s extra importance on the creative, but don’t let that pressure make you think that you need to go find the best photographer out there. In these examples you’ll find that
- Simplicity is a good thing
- Graphic design can elevate a basic image
- In-app text features are convenient and ideal
- Colors can make an ad pop out of a newsfeed
- And that sometimes the best images look like they came straight from your camera roll.
12. Thrive Causemetics
This simple graphic will stop users mid-scroll, thinking they’re receiving an AirDrop. It’s attention-grabbing and creative...unless that user is on a desktop or has an Android. Hopefully, this ad is only targeting iPhone users.
A simple before and after can go a long way with ads. They let the picture do the talking. Attention is directed towards the lawn because of the basic text addition.
Another example of how a simple image with text that looks like it could have been added in-app goes a long way. It’s a good ad when the visuals say everything you need to know.
Bonus points for pointing out the name of the photographer pictured. It makes the ad feel more personable like you know exactly who you’d be hiring.
Rothy’s definitely hired a professional photographer for this and it shows—in a good way. The fact that the camera angle seems to be coming from within the water is an attention-grabber. It lets the image do the talking.
Joybird’s image might have you wondering why it’s included in this list. It doesn’t seem like anything particularly special, it’s no high-quality photo...you probably could take a photo similar to this in your own home.
You’d be right.
That’s the point.
This is still a pretty room, with a nice-looking couch and nice pillows, but as you scroll through your newsfeed it would probably look like a friend’s post and that’s what they’re going for.
It makes the ad feel like it’s coming from a friend versus a brand trying to shove their product down your news feed.
17. The Honest Company
This Facebook ad image works because they have a short but powerful testimonial paired with the product the testimonial is referring to. The blank, colorful background grabs the eye and diverts your attention straight to the quote.
This ad is another example of a simple photo with basic text. The little spots of sunlight keep it bright and summery to match the product. The text is a black font to make the deal they’re trying to advertise stick out.
Straight from someone’s camera roll with tons of personality. It shows the product in-use so you understand exactly what’s happening without reading any copy. Also, who doesn’t love a good dog pic?
Greenlight paired a camera roll-esque photo with graphics. If a child holding a credit card didn’t catch your attention, the big numbers and bright colors will. Greenlight is also running the same ads without the graphics. I wonder which one is performing best for them? It’s always good practice to test these things.
21. Still Novel
Still Novel presents an aesthetically pleasing photo. By having a woman’s arms in there, it provides some context for the product. It allows you to get an idea of how big the frames are and how it would look on a plain wall. Seeing somebody else’s wedding photos and details too, allows you to imagine what yours might look like.
Colors alone can influence up to 90% of an initial impression. The soft purples, pinks, and greens that lead the eye to the product and testimonial are soft but aesthetically pleasing.
Ah, what is a pool day without some good tunes to listen to? The lifestyle photo alongside the color blocking design makes this a plain good ad.
This example from Mailchimp is a winner because there’s a clear photo paired with value-based copy that highlights one of Mailchimp’s service benefits.
🥇 Best Facebook video ad examples
The right image can work wonders, but you’ll notice that a majority of ads are videos.
Shoppers that watch videos are 1.81 times more likely to make a purchase, in comparison to non-video viewers.
In fact, Bitelab did an experiment where they found that video ads bring in 270% more leads than images.
If you have a video of your product, create an A/B test where it’s used in place of your Facebook ad image. The results might surprise you…
A few video best practices:
- Optimize your ad for each placement. Upload a video with the best ratio for where it’s showing:
- Facebook Feed - 4:5
- Facebook Instant Articles - 16:9
- Facebook In-Steam Video - 16:9 or 1:1
- Facebook Marketplace - 4:5
- Facebook Search Results - 4:5
- Facebook Video Feeds - 4:5
- Facebook Stories - 9:16
- Audience Network Native, Banner and Interstitial - 9:16
- Audience Network Rewarded Video - 9:16
- Messenger Stories - 9:16
- The first few seconds are the most important. People lose attention after 8 seconds.
- Always add captions: Each video in the Facebook news feed is soundless by default. To get your message to the people, add captions to all the videos shared on the social media platform. According to Facebook, captioned video ads increase video view time by an average of 12%. In one study of Facebook video ads, 41% of videos were almost meaningless without sound.
- Choose an enticing thumbnail or upload a custom image. The thumbnail image in a video ad is the still image people see before a video starts and after it ends.
Ruggable leans on user-generated content to fuel its Facebook ad strategy, like the one above.
Not only does UGC deliver an authentic punch of credibility, but this particular video spotlights a perfect Ruggable use case: when you have dogs that dirty your rugs.
No matter who watches this ad, it's hard to imagine they won't relate, and perhaps even think to themselves, "Hmm, I wonder what other situations I can think of that would be easier if I could wash my rug."
27. Drunk Elephant
Drunk Elephant is a skincare company best known for their scientific formulations and distinct brand (neon) colors.
Not only is this ad well-branded so viewers know it's Drunk Elephant immediately (brand recall is a big problem when you don't have distinct brand assets), but it spotlights the main benefits of their new peptide moisturizer in a fun, energetic way in less than 15 seconds.
28. Pillow Cube
It’s hard to make a 6-second video entertaining, but Pillow Cube nailed it. They didn’t take themselves too seriously, they leaned into the comedy approach while still managing to educate viewers on the main pain all their buyers experience: the most-annoying arm that gets in the way of side sleeping.
29. Thrive Causemetics
Thrive Causemetics is a prime example of the power of a thumbnail. This video is actually just a full frame video of the woman applying mascara, which is common in the makeup world. But Thrive knows that the thumbnail is the first thing shown on a video (that’s why we included it as one of our recommended best-practices), so they made it a before and after shot.
As she applies the mascara in a full video (without the line down the middle) they show this thumbnail image comparing before and after a couple times to emphasize how effective the product is.
Short and sweet. Airbnb turned text-based graphics and a couple of photos into a six-second video that manages to tell a story. From those six seconds, we know that this man is able to fund his retirement through hosting on Airbnb. It’s a great awareness-level ad. Simplicity is a good thing.
Supergoop’s video ad showcasing its various sunscreen products is a great example of a slideshow ad.
This video type doesn’t take a huge production team on your end – simply gather some photos or cut-outs like we see in this ad example, and sew them together using a video app.
Who doesn’t love a good food video? Chipotle is absolutely playing to their audience with this video ad.
And the added call-to-action to order pick-up or delivery now is definitely enticing to any hungry person stumbling across this video ad.
Hulu’s video ads are a bit unique as they constantly have tons of video footage and assets to use for ad creation.
This ad focuses on shows their subscribers can watch on their platform, providing an incentive for people who may not have signed up for Hulu yet to click that Sign Up button.
Give your brand a bit of humor. This video ad by Dropps showcases their CEO in the bathtub telling you a story about laundry.
Not every video ad is going to be cut and dry. Some need to have a naked executive taking a bath to catch your audience’s eye.
GrubHub’s video ads are quick and to the point. Let the food do the talking and follow it up with a call-to-action for their perks program. Who could resist?
This Netflix ad example is a classic example of not knowing where to look first, but it works for them and what they’re selling. This ad showcases several of the platform's most popular shows at the moment, grabbing attention and attracting sign-ups.
Your video doesn’t have to be long to do the job. This Spotify ad is 3 seconds long and showcases a repetitive animation of someone in the kitchen flipping vegetables in a pan paired with quick, concise copy selling their product.
Duolingo is famous for the humor they bring into their brand messaging, and it shows in this adorably animated video.
Humor and personality can work for a brand, as long as you’re brave enough to give it a try.
Nixit’s video ad example is a great peek into how stop motion videos can look in Facebook ads, and they’ve absolutely nailed this one.
A basic stop motion video that lasts only a few seconds won’t take days to complete, and they’ve perfectly ended the video with their bright colors, bold fonts, and compelling copy.
Headspace’s video ad is a fantastic example of how they’re using their product to create compelling ads that really grab attention and sell their product.
By using shapes and simple copy to simulate a breathing exercise, they’re immediately roping their target audience in and getting them interested in downloading their app.
🏆 Best Facebook carousel ad examples
Now it’s time to move onto our next category of ad examples – carousel ads. These types of ads are basically a slideshow of images or videos that users can click through on their own. Carousels can be 10 images or videos within a single ad, each with its own link.
With more creative space within an ad, you can highlight different products, showcase specific details about one product, service or promotion, or tell a story about your brand that develops across each carousel card.
You can choose to let Facebook optimize the order of the carousel images, based on each card's performance. But if you're using the format to tell a sequential story, make sure you opt-out of the automatic optimization feature.
Let’s dive into a few top examples of these so that you can really grasp the potential that carousel ads could have for your business.
41. Our Place
Our Place mixes screenshots of press features with aesthetically pleasing product shots that are styled to look like they could be in your home.
Vuori’s carousel ad plays an eye-catching trick to stop viewers during their scroll. If the flashing text on the first slide doesn’t stop them, then the model sprinting into the folded pairs will. The carousel has great movement and blends all the slides together cohesively which makes you want to keep scrolling through.
Fernish took on the challenge of addressing a buying concern in every single carousel slide. They present it with a nice image and a block of copy in the answer and question format.
Carousel slide designs don’t have to blend in with one another, but it helps encourage engagement. This one in particular from Canva has the first slide as a “title slide” and all slides following are each a how-to step.
This carousel from Storq highlights a specific product feature: pants that fit during pregnancy and after. You don’t need to read any copy to get the message. You see a pregnant woman wearing the pants in the first slide and a non-pregnant woman wearing them in the second slide.
Telling a product story visually is always the best way to go.
46. Parade Underwear
Parade Underwear gets the carousel party started by using a video with a testimonial as the first slide of the carousel. It hooks viewers in. The following slides are all used for education, so viewers can compare different styles and see all their color options.
In this case, Clearbit is advertising a free ebook. If an ad viewer isn’t ready to commit to a download, they can scroll through each slide to learn about some of the topics the ebook will cover.
What’s really smart about this ad though is that they included photos of the experts that help provide info for the ebook, giving it a personal touch. And then on the last slide, they have a bright bookmark symbol with an arrow down towards their call-to-action.
Billabong could have just posted a boring graphic to encourage viewers to enter their sweepstakes. To make it more engaging, they used an eye-catching lifestyle photo. The copy alerts the viewer of the sweepstakes and then they engage with the carousel and click over to the next slide to get the details.
49. Adult Acne Solutions
An A+ carousel ad from Adult Acne Solutions. Starting with a simple, short testimonial paired with the five stars. Then your eyes are drawn to the faces. As weird as it might sound, people like looking at other people’s faces on the web. When they feel like someone’s gazing at them, they can’t resist finding out more.
From the colors to the smiles to the stars to the soft pinks, this post will stand out among all the other posts on your news feed.
This Patagonia ad is simple, but perfect. The carousel ad switches between a lifestyle video of their product in use and the actual product photo as it’s seen in their online store.
Giving users the ability to see both of these options upfront can show them just how much potential they could have by purchasing a Patagonia product.
This Sperry carousel ad is equal parts creative and visually appealing. By stitching photos together like this, they’ve created an elongated image that users can’t help but want to scroll through.
Everlane takes their carousel ad here and uses a simple but effective strategy – showcasing a different product in each one of their sections.
This is a great way to get the most out of an ad, rather than creating separate ads for each product you want to promote, especially if they’re similar.
53. The Sill
This carousel ad by The Sill includes a happy medium of photos and graphics combined together to tell a story.
They take viewers through different parts of a home in each slide, showcasing how amazing life could be with greenery.
This Madewell ad is unique because they’ve combined both video and carousel ads into one, placing a video on each slide. This can be effective because it helps them to get even more potential out of a single ad set.
This stunning carousel ad gives users a sneak peek into what their jewelry boxes can look like, if only they click on that Shop Now button and get to purchasing.
Videos and photos don’t have to take up the whole square of the carousel slide. Converse’s clever use of stitching together videos, white space, and graphics will enable it to stick out because it’s different from other posts.
They differentiated it in such a way that also highlights the products and leads to purchases.
⭐ Best Facebook ad copy examples
While Facebook is a very visual platform, sometimes the ad copy is actually the driving force in helping customers make a decision. It can be the cherry on top of powerful creative imagery or videos.
The best copy will
- Have a call-to-action (CTA). You need to be direct about what you want people to do. There’s a call-to-action button, but reinforcing what you want the viewer to do within the copy is always best.
- Be easy to read. If somebody sees a big paragraph of copy, they’re going to scroll right on past it. Focus on bulleted copy and short sentences with space in between.
- Include emojis anytime it makes sense. Emojis are processed by the brain as non-verbal information, which means we interpret them. as emotional communications. This gives the emoji the power to enhance the message of whatever we’re trying to convey.
- And be conversational. You’re working with a social platform. Make sure your ads don’t sound like a robot. Your copy can come off as conversational and still match your brand, whether it's for professionals or speaking to millennials.
Here are a few awesome Facebook ad examples where it’s all about the ad copy.
This ad copy starts out with a question which is a great way to garner attention. They organize the points they want to make in a bulleted format, but instead of using plain bullets, they use emojis.
Once you understand the product benefits, you see direct quotes from customers in their ad graphics, showcasing that real people are using and loving their product.
Soona is a great example of using copy that talks directly to the consumer. By addressing “you,” it bonds the ad to only the person reading it. Then the ad copy talks about the future in terms of “our” next shoot, which makes you reader feel like the brand really cares. You’re in it together.
Tushy knows they sell a product used in the bathroom. It can be awkward or uncomfortable to talk about, so they lean into it. By making things fun with the copy, they loosen up the visitor and make the product more approachable.
60. Liquid Death
If you try to make your product for everybody, you’ll end up making it for nobody. The more specific you can be with your target audience, the better you can match your ad copy and images to match what your target audience responds to.
Liquid Death really leaned into this. It’s obvious just by their product name that they’re not trying to appeal to everybody. Their copy is on-brand for them. The sass and use of a bad testimonial will speak to the exact people they want which will end up in conversions.
Flodesk’s ad copy is good to begin with and their use of symbols and different fonts is a creative tactic to catch attention and highlight specific words that need emphasis.
Lessonly keeps ad copy simple and focused on the benefits. They include the call to action of “create remote training programs in minutes.”
They also incorporate emojis into the ad header along with a question which will make viewers pause.
63. K9 Sport Sack
Don’t beat around the busy with your ad copy. K9 Sport Sack didn’t. They clearly get asked why they make dog carriers for big dogs a lot—and they have a good reason.
For senior dogs, handicapped dogs, or public transit. They’re helping the target audience identify themselves. It helps get new customers from people that didn’t even know they had a solution to their problem.
Funboy uses good copywriting from the caption to the video.
People like to skim-read, so when you put the copy in listicle format, it makes information easy to understand. In this case, Funboy summarizes the five reasons that their product keeps selling out.
Give special attention to their decision to also say that the products keep selling out instead of the five reasons why their product is popular. The choice to note that the floats sell out adds an extra urgency to purchase if you really like it, before they sell out (again).
Simple and silly is the approach Coravin took. How many times have you debated opening a bottle of wine because you don’t want to drink the entire bottle, but you also don’t want it to go bad?
The caption copy of “drink a glass of whatever, whenever” is the casual nature you wish you could have while opening a bottle. Then they add a good laugh in the copy on the video that says “pairs well with seeing the clothes you wore in high school described as a ‘vintage aesthetic.’”
Coravin nailed the conversational tone. They know how their audience is talking and they match it.
Every new mom is afraid of waking a baby that just fell asleep. This ad copy from Hatch speaks to the feeling that a mom could get from their product. It hits on the emotions by showing the sleeping baby and the copy that says “turn up the sounds” despite that.
67. The Sill
The Sill’s ad copy makes it all about you. Rather than making the ad about selling, they flip the focus back to doing something for you. It’s a smart tactic that helps to make the viewer feel important and emotionally motivated to buy a product.
This simple and casual copy shows that you don’t always have to be clever or hip in what you’re writing. Just be real with your audience.
The copy in this Headspace ad is simple, straight to the point, and focuses 100% on the customer. And for an app focusing on self-care and mental health, they’ve done a fantastic job here.
70. Magic Spoon Cereal
We’re loving the use of emoji to add visuals into the copy in this Magic Spoon Cereal ad, as well as sharing the direct benefits of their cereal. Any parent trying to get healthy breakfast foods for their kids will instantly be intrigued.
Inject some personality into your copy like we see here in this Winc ad. It incites a small chuckle out of their reader, making them that much more likely to click that Get Offer button.
The copy in this TOMS ad is all about exclusivity. Love these shoes? Buy them now, before supplies sell out and you’ve lost your chance.
73. Purple Carrot
You’ve got a problem. Purple Carrot has the solution. That’s the exact style of this ad copy and it’s incredibly effective.
74. Microsoft Surface
Microsoft Surface’s Facebook ad example includes the text, “Surface Book comes with Pen, touch, and nearly 2 million more pixels than a MacBook Pro 13.”
This is why adding the statement could be considered a smart move for the brand.
For once, Surface says that it has considerably more pixels than its main competitor: MacBook Pro 13.
By mentioning the MacBook in their ad, they take advantage of their competitor’s fame.
Simply describing the number of pixels in their PC wouldn’t tell most ad viewers a thing — but comparing the number to the well-known MacBook Pro establishes a strong anchor point for the comparison.
🥇 Facebook ad examples by content focus
There are so many different brands and thus, so many different ways to sell. Some focus on the product, some need to focus on a service. Some have amazing testimonials to show off and some find success with a promotion. From small businesses to enterprises, check out all these examples from a variety of content focuses to get ideas on what your brand could try.
🏆 Best product-focused Facebook ad examples
All of these examples put the product front and center. If you have a great product and great visuals, this can work wonders. The following examples make their products shine in different ways.
KiwiCo makes fun DIY projects for kids so they feature the product in three different ways. They start off in the box, how you’d receive it. Then post-build, but with all the pieces from an unmade one laid out so you can clearly understand what you start with. They end it with a girl smiling and holding the product.
You can easily understand what the product is, how to use it, and that it’ll make your kid happy.
A quick slideshow of three different colored outfit combos from real nurses. FIGS’ ad is a good example because it’s quick, shows variety and features the product worn and along with plain product shots so the viewer can easily imagine themselves in the outfit.
This ad example by Glossier is so incredibly simple and so effective at the same time. Basic flat lay photos alongside some compelling copy can work wonderfully for getting paying customers into the “door” of your eCommerce store.
78. Beyond Yoga
This slideshow ad uses a few photos of this awesome, best-selling product to reel in potential buyers and get them to click to their website and add to cart.
Sometimes a short, 10-second video of someone in your product is all you need to really make the sale.
I mean, look at how comfortable this woman looks. And with a basic text overlay selling the product, even more, I can hear buyers clicking that Shop Now button.
80. West Elm
You don’t always need a carousel ad to showcase a variety of products. A short video like this one with seamless transitions is another great way to appeal to consumers.
This Billie ad example uses brightly colored photos of their products as their ad asset, and it works. The eye-catching photo grabs user attention as they scroll through their Facebook feed, making them pause to see what the fuss is all about.
We love a good, clean design, and that’s exactly what we have here with these Sonos ads. With a simple look and a short, branded message, these are a couple of spot-on ad designs that highlight the product.
This ad is simple but effective, showcasing a woman wearing a pair of their sunglasses. They also let users know right in the caption which specific pair these are in case they want to come back later and check them out, rather than clicking immediately.
84. Oliver Peoples
While this ad isn’t showing a finished product, sometimes the behind-the-scenes and the in-between can be fun for an audience to see as well.
85. Hydro Flask
We’re back with the bright colors in this Hydro Flask ad. This ad is perfectly using a rainbow color backdrop and similarly colored water bottles to grab attention and attract users to buy now.
This simple slideshow ad keeps to a monochromatic greyscale color theme by showcasing all of the various colors of this specific shoe. This is a great way to let viewers know that your brand is sure to have something for everyone.
87. Pipette Bady
This Facebook ad example’s focus on pastel colors and clean design really catches their target audience’s eyes. Plus, the “So fresh + so clean” copy is going to stand out to any new or expecting mom.
Bottom line? Know what your audience wants to see and give it to them.
Sperry’s product ad is another great example of showcasing a product next to that product in action. They let their audience get a glimpse into what they can do with the product without having to imagine it.
89. Warby Parker
Warby Parker’s simple product ad showcases a few frames from their new collection against clean, white linen. You can take this photo with your smartphone and still create an engaging Facebook ad.
90. World Market
This is a great ad from World Market showcasing several of their products within a single photo. It shows the massive selection that consumers can find, getting them ready to open their wallets and buy…a lot of items.
91. Artifact Uprising
This is a great product ad as it’s simple yet still so visually appealing. Showcasing a stunning travel photo book cover design against a plain background allows their product to stand out more.
This REI ad showcases a stunning, real-life photo of the products in use. They’re saying, “Want to spend more time outdoors? You need REI.”
⭐ Best service-focused and B2B Facebook ad examples
Not every brand sells products and not every ad needs to be product-focused. We’ve put together a list of our favorite B2B and service-based Facebook ad examples to showcase how these guys are also winning at digital advertising.
Survey Monkey focuses on showing a person that makes the viewer think it’s what they would look like if they used the service. Happiness is infectious. Smiles sell. They elicit more customer joy as well as a greater product liking.
Getting a celebrity like Floyd Mayweather to speak on your service’s behalf helps, but Cameo doesn’t totally rely on it. This entire ad video is filled with a slideshow of reasons to use their service. The use-cases help nudge viewers to purchase.
If you know the top paint point that your product solves, put that front and center. That’s what Gusto does in their ads. Don’t focus on the service. Focus on the benefit.
Bonus points for the ad copy that provides an average time to run payroll. People like numbers, they give authority to your ad.
G2 is one of the most trusted service review sites, so PandaDoc let’s them do the talking. Because it’s so universally recognized and trusted, it speaks volumes about how great the product is.
The reality is that B2B marketing and many service-based businesses have a longer buying cycle. Offering a downloadable asset is good for the beginning and middle of the funnel because it provides value.
This ad puts the value right in front of your face. The exact numbers give it the authority and give potential results that viewers could also expect. There’s a lot going on but the big numbers guide the eye.

🥇 Best social proof and testimonial Facebook ad examples
Another great way to sell your product or service through your Facebook ads is by sharing social proof, or customer reviews and testimonials.
83% of people trust reviews over ads, so putting them together is a winning combination.
In fact, there’s no need to limit yourself to customer testimonials. You can also get a boost from these sources:
- Testimonials from your employees: Many employees do this without asking -— especially if your company is a great place to work —- but it doesn’t hurt to ask them to share their positive experiences with the world.
- Industry experts: If a busy influencer takes the time to give you a review, they must think you’re worth talking to. There’s also the halo effect – when an influencer praises your brand, people will associate you with the famous person’s glory and fame.
- Third-party reviews: Visit niche review sites in your industry such as Yelp, TrustRadius or G2Crowd — and look at the existing reviews for your product or service. These could serve as social proof for your next Facebook ads campaign.
Press from popular magazines is their own form of social proof. Hatch used a screenshot of a People article that their product was featured in. Placing it on top of a video of a dreamy sunset, keeps it on-brand and interesting.
107. Grill Rescue
Grill Rescue compiled nine different testimonial videos into one. While it can be overwhelming, it’s also powerful. You see all these people raving about the product and you get FOMO. You want to be part of the crowd.
Blissy’s image compares their pillow to others. They add in social proof at the bottom by putting the logos of all the brands that have recommended their pillow.
Smaller, but also significant is the copy under the stars that says they have over 40,000 5-star reviews. That’s powerful.
Supermetrics chose to add their social proof two ways: in the caption and as the marketed content. The caption features a direct quote and the actual ad content CTA is to read a customer success story.
110. Bite Toothpaste Bits
Bite’s ad cycles through a series of short testimonials. The visuals of the five stars within the testimonials and within the headline hammer the social proof points home.
Billie chose to use a review from popular magazine, PopSugar. Rather than clicking through to Billie’s website to shop, they take the viewers to PopSugar.com to read the full review.
Not only will the bold colors in this Nixit ad grab attention, but the testimonials directly in the ad video give even more credibility to their product and their brand.

116. Artifact Uprising
This Artifact Uprising ad is unique in that it isn’t even created from Artifact Uprising’s account. Instead, this is another example of an influencer campaign, where the influencer tagged the brand, and the brand promoted the post.
The social proof here is subtle – it’s in the title line of their ad information. “50,000+ 5-star reviews don’t lie” is a great tagline to help sell your product and build trust.
This ad has everything – bright colors, emojis, a direct customer quote, and a 50% off your first order promotion. We love to see it.

Vuori's promotion is hard to miss, which is a good thing. It’s also a simple one to explain which makes it more appealing. They still could have utilized the headline to hammer the point home.
This ad stuck out from the rest of the news feed. Not only does the graphic of the man pop, but the promotion does too. 25 B2B leads for free. For B2Bs, leads are a hot commodity. It’s a deal you can’t pass up.
When “Free” is the biggest word on the ad, you’re bound to get eyes. Pair it with a testimonial and emojis and you’re destined for success.
126. The North Face
If you’re running a discount or promotion for various holidays, you absolutely want to create an ad campaign surrounding that. The ROI from additional awareness of your sale will nearly always be worth it.
Heavy copy doesn’t always work in a Facebook ad, but in this example where Dunkin is thoroughly explaining their perks program, it’s necessary.
Less is typically more unless you need the verbiage to give your audience a more thorough understanding.
The unique graphics help initially grab attention, but it’s the discount that is ultimately going to reel the customers in.
Including a promo code right in your ad is a great way to get people to take action immediately – they don’t want to forget about this discount.
Bedding is not a cheap investment, but Brooklinen’s focus on fair prices and their 25% off bundles can really help take the edge off when someone needs new sheets or a comforter.

136. Pipette Baby
This is a compelling ad because they’ve included a photo of everything their target audience could buy in this summer bundle alongside a 30% off sale. It’s transparent and a beautifully designed ad to boot.
⭐ Facebook ad examples by campaign objective
Every Facebook ad campaign starts with an objective. From a high level, there are three options: awareness, consideration, or conversions.
While we can’t confirm exactly which objective the following examples were set up for, we can guess. If the CTA is strong, the objective should be clear and every good ad has a strong CTA. Awareness is top of for more top of funnel activities, consideration is that big chunk of middle of the funnel, and conversions is going for bottom of the funnel.
- What is my prospect’s motivation for clicking this button?
- What is my prospect going to get when (s)he clicks this button?
Answering those two questions will give you a much more specific and effective direction for your CTA — and hopefully lead to more conversions.
🥇 Best Facebook brand awareness ad examples
The following Facebook ad awareness examples vary from having no CTA to leading viewers to education blog content. From Saas to retail and beyond. The main goal of them all is to eyes on the ad.
137. HART Tools
HART Tools sells everything from saws to leaf blowers, but that’s not the priority here. All they’re focusing on is providing value. They’re giving free plans to build a cornhole set. If you want to use their tools, great. They’re trying to associate positive feelings with their brand.

In the next few examples, you’ll see how a variety of brands go at the middle of the funnel.

Stitch Fix has got its ad game right. Anytime someone browses some of the closet options on their site, they have a retargeting campaign that will then show the user Facebook ads based on their clothing preferences.
Genius, right? Now we might not all have the budget that Stitch Fix does, but retargeting ads don’t have to cost an arm and a leg, and they can be great at grabbing buyers who may not have been totally ready before.
159. Blue Apron
Blue Apron has put some real effort into the images, as they know that delicious-looking fresh food is a crucial selling point.
If your product needs to be unpacked or prepared in some way or another, it makes a lot of sense to let people see both of these phases. Showcasing a closed subscription box or a pile of Legos could potentially arise a lot less powerful feelings than displaying the final result – a delicious meal, or a Star Wars Lego spaceship.
Blue Apron also offers $30 off the first delivery. This eliminates of one of the biggest objections: “I don’t know if I like the product and I’m unsure whether to spend money on it.” By offering the first product/order for free, you’ll cross the barrier and start a conversation with your audience.
Once a person says “Yes” to you once, they’re more likely to continue doing so. The first “Yes” will start a sequence that’s harder to break than continue.

Lead Ads give people a quick way to opt into things like newsletters, quotes, and offers without leaving the Facebook news feed.

Unbounce’s Facebook ad hints that they can deliver conversions in five simple steps.
The simplicity of the process is there before you, loud and clear, marked by five colorful icons.

Sometimes it makes sense to leave some ideas unmentioned in the ad and explain everything in depth on your landing page. A study showed that 59% of people actually never read more than the headline of a Facebook share, so yes, you want to be brief.
The five icons in Unbounce’s ad draw attention and help structure the ad’s message. As KISSmetrics puts it: “Icons help give users a point of reference – particularly when navigating a site or when scrolling and scanning over a page.”
If there was an easy five-step method to double your leads, every marketer would jump on it. We all know that there are no such shortcuts, but we’re still intrigued by the promise of an effortless achievement.

When appearing in the messy Facebook news feed, GetResponse’s sky-blue ad draws all sorts of attention to itself.
It’s so colorful that it’s almost impossible to ignore.
