Creating new assets can take up a considerable amount of your Facebook ad management time. Sometimes it can be difficult to test new ad copy, images, call to actions and evaluate the results. But Facebook has a new tool to help Facebook advertising agencies and companies creating their own adverts: Dynamic Creative ads.

What is Dynamic Creative?

Dynamic creative is designed to automatically select the best ad creative to suit the user. First, you supply Facebook with a range of videos, text and calls to action. Then you select your target market and set your budget. Facebook will then create multiple ad variants, determine which combination works best for your audience and show them that version of your ad.

This is a great way for PPC agencies and in-house teams to gather new insights on which creative elements perform best for your audience.

How do I create Dynamic Creative ads?

The first step is to create your campaign. Dynamic creative ads can be used for conversion, traffic and app install objective campaigns. Dynamic creative is also supported across Facebook, Instagram and the audience network.

Create a new ad set, as normal. Save your ad set, but do not publish it! Dynamic creative is unavailable on ad sets that have been published or duplicated. Then select the ‘Dynamic Creative’ button in the ad set list:
