Most of the advice you’ll find about running ads on paid social deals with the technical process behind it: what buttons to push, what levers to pull, and so forth. It’s extremely important to sharpen these technical skills because if you can operate the plane, you can fly it places. However, if your plane looks like crap, no one is going to want to fly with you.
The reality is that the actual visual experience of your ad is just as important as your targeting, and if you don’t truly believe that, then you’re in for a rude awakening. Going into the “feed” with dull or bad creative is like going into the Roman coliseum with a nerf gun.
