As explained by Facebook:

“As people spend more and more time on mobile, advertisers have the opportunity to drive both brand building and direct-response results. But creativity is key to capture your audience’s attention and drive action. On mobile, video has proven to be one of the most engaging formats to connect with customers, and now, producing video ads does not have to be expensive or time consuming. In the past year, the number of advertisers using video in direct-response campaigns across our platforms increased 3.8X. In fact, you can easily transform existing still ads into lightweight video ads just by adding motion. “

As a desire for making the best use of “Create to Convert”, Facebook built a list of the various ways the new process can be used:

  1. Basic motion: Animate your still image by adding only one or two elements of motion in a few seconds and include a call-to-action (CTA) card at the end to drive your desired business outcome.
  2. Brand in motion: Bring the elements of your brand or logo to life in a few seconds to promote brand recognition and then add a CTA card at the end to drive action.
  3. Benefit in motion: Bring the key benefit or message of your ad to life through animation in a few seconds. This could be a product benefit, a special offer or discount, a testimonial or product variety. Highlighting the benefit will illuminate the value to your audience and adding a CTA at the end will enable them to easily take the next step toward conversion.
  4. Demo in motion: Focus motion on demonstrating how your app, website, service, product or feature works. Show people how to navigate your offerings and include a CTA at the end to enable them to seamlessly take action right from your ad.
