Creating the Ad
Include a hook, such as a question, an unexpected statement, something that builds curiosity, or an invitation.
Include a call to action. Okay to ask people to click on the ad.
Don't be too stock photo-ish.
Include the most important info before it gets cut off and people have to click "More."
If the image does most of the talking, your text does not have to do much.
Be casual, conversational, friendly, and inviting. Fit into context of Facebook.
Button copy: Avoid "learn more."
Types of above-the-image copy: description and discount; detail copy: what it is, why it's special; stats; join me for a webinar; tell a story
