In today’s post, I want to be sure that you know that making a significant impact on the success of your ad campaigns is so much easier than most people like to believe.
It all comes back to five key traits that make up a successful ad.
There is no point trying to run ads to something that has no need in the marketplace. Selling to consumer’s needs and pain points is the best way to craft an enticing offering that people truly desire. If your offer is not good enough, people will not buy it. Period.
It’s important that you consider which subsets of your entire audience are most likely to buy your product within the buyer’s journey. Are they new to your product and just gathering information?

If you’re running ads and the purpose or aim of those ads is to grow your email list with leads, then you’re probably promoting a lead magnet. Your ad creative has to capture their attention.
Your copy must then sell the benefits of that lead magnet and persuade the reader to take an action and go to the next step in the buyer’s journey.
This is the key piece that pulls all of this together and underpins a successful campaign.
Message to market match simply means that if you’re putting a high quality offer in front of the right audience.
There is no point advertising dog grooming kits to an audience of gardening lovers – it’s not a subject matter they are likely to be interested in.
This is truly it – it’s not as complicated as some make it seem. You need:
