Running ads on social media can be frustrating. After carefully crafting ad copy, designing an elevated graphic, and targeting the right audience, you might still see high costs per click and low click-through rates.
Is this you?
Don't worry, you're not the problem— but your images are. A report by Databox revealed that image ads receive about half the number of clicks of video ads and convert roughly 30% fewer customers.
Is Video Really a Better ROI?
It's impossible to ignore that video (typically) costs more to produce than still imagery. Scripting, pre-production, filming, editing, and revisions can bloat your timeline and budget for visual assets to run as a PPC social campaign. And if you're paying an agency or contractor to create a video, the costs can add up even faster.
While potential costs can make video production an intimidating pursuit, running ineffective PPC social media campaigns is more costly when you consider the whole customer journey.
According to HubSpot research, 93% of customers are likely to make a repeat purchase from a company as long as they have excellent customer service. So instead of looking at your campaign as a one-time boost to sales, take into consideration the lifetime value of a customer. Once a new lead is in your ecosystem, you can re-engage them in the future with lower-cost methods such as email, social media, or SMS marketing.
