How to create advertising videos on social networks? How do you get users to see your ad through to the end? 

Currently, video is the star of social networks. We explained to you that 76% of users prefer network video. Online video classifieds have become the new standard, they are more attractive than picture ads, get better click rates and are more fun.

But the problem is that creating these short ads is a real challenge. You often need a fast laptop and complex software just to make the basic changes. With Captured, you can add subtitles to these online videos to gain visibility. In this tutorial, I will quickly show you how to make a simple online video ad.

Crop your video

If you want to publish an advertisement in the form of an Instagram article, it is necessary to publish it in the best dimensions. 

That's why, on instagram, you have to crop your video into a complete portrait (16:9 format). No more horizontal videos, we're betting everything on the vertical or square format! We like to make ads on Instagram because they use all the visual material on the phone. If you don't want to make a vertical video, there are of course plenty of other possibilities.

Be creative

To personalize your ad, you just have to add your message and company logo. This will make it easier to identify your brand. 

Don't hesitate to be original and innovative in the content of your advertising. You need to catch the public quickly, so that they understand your message, but above all... so that they retain it! The idea is to avoid that the user keeps scrolling, so your catchy message must be immediate!
