Creative Ad Builder

The Ad Builder has templates that you can use to create interesting video ads. You can create an unlimited number of creatives for free, without any special skills or experience.

To make a creative:
  1. In the Creative section, click Add → Create new from template. Choose one of the template options in the Creative Ad Builder window that opens.

  2. To make a creative, you can use your own video, choose one from the library, or use a previously uploaded video (including videos you have used for video extensions). Our experiments have shown that using your own video is 5 times more effective than using a stock video from the library.

    You don't need to hire professionals or rent a studio to make your own video. You can film a clip on your smartphone if it has a good camera, buy a video from a stock database, or make an animation using photos of your products..
