Your Every Second Counts 

Think of yourself as a user first. While you are scrolling your Instagram feed or swiping the videos when an ad pops up, you quickly skip it right away; that’s where your branding fails out. You need to create your Instagram ad;

whether it’s a video or an image, you need to make it more expressive in a way enough to catch all the eyes.

Remember your ad’s every second count. So try to create something bright and enough to capture all the attention in a glance. 

If you are trying to promote your ads in videos, then make sure that the first seconds of the videos have enough movement so that viewers can quickly identify it as a video.

If the video has no subtle movement in the first few seconds and appears to be an image, then a viewer will scroll it right away without realizing what he had missed out on. Be more expressive and creative while making an Instagram ad and make your video ads to compel the users to stop rapidly. 

Addition of Text 

Although Instagram is good at promoting your ads as we move ahead with the video ads, we are all well aware that Instagram audio is muted by default. Now, what’s next? Play with the visual text then. Grab the attention of your targeted audience by conveying your product’s message by providing captions for your ad videos. 

Generate dynamic text effects and highlight the points you wish to get noticed by your audience. These textual concepts can help pique your audience’s interest. In this way, they can watch the full video of your product and end up turning on the sound later. Don’t add too much text, as over flooding of texts can make the video look cluttered. If you are running a video ad, the last thing to mention is to make sure you get a high-quality video with some dynamic text effects.
