Does Creative Matter: a series of experiments in which we run ads targeting marketers, telling the marketers that these ads are part of an experiment. The goal is to prove how small creative changes within your ads can have a large impact on performance.
In August, we experimented with the bottle type of our fake product, the ad design, and the presence of badges in our creative. This experiment ran for 7 days, spending $250 and accumulating 2,697 clicks.
This experiment included the below variable groups and values.
The most impactful creative component from this experiment was the Original Bottle, with an avg. CTR of 6.73%, with the Original Design right behind it.
The Original Design was responsible for 14.6% of the clicks in this cycle. While the worst performing element by far was the Small Bottle with under 8% of the total clicks from this cycle.
After running three cycles and only spending $650, we've discovered a top performing ad variant with a CTR of 11.09%! We've challenged our winning components and they've proven that they are the best creative elements once again.
In the next cycle, we'll expand our experimental strategy to try and improve our winning elements further!
