Here at Digible, we love a good Canvas ad. What is a Canvas ad you may ask? A Canvas ad is a mobile full-screen experience that allows for users to scroll through videos, images, and multimedia elements while never leaving the Facebook app. Think of it as a mini website chalked full of information and beautiful design. The purpose of a Canvas ad is to tell a story about your brand while educating users of your offerings. For the apartment industry, Canvas ads check all the boxes by allowing advertisers to highlight images, floorplans, amenities and offerings all in one space.
When creating canvas ads, it was a constant debate, whether amenity or interior images were better suited for the target audience. On one hand, amenities are enticing to view. But on the other hand, floor plans are practical and useful information for those looking to sign a lease.
In Q1, we measured the performance of amenities/interior images versus floor plan images in the body of canvas ads. The purpose of the test is to best understand Facebook audience behavior & interests.
