Grab attention with the right imagery

Facebook’s ad rules dictate that an ad must contain more visuals than text. In fact, 80% of the ad should be an image or photo. So, let the right imagery speak for itself and use it to catch your audience’s attention. Canva hosts an amazing media library of over a million professional stock photos and illustrations to use on your design. Search using specific keywords or browse through various categories. There are plenty of free images in the library and premium ones only require a small cost for each one-time use.

Already have an image you want to use? Upload it for free and use it on your design. Just drag and drop it into Canva. Once uploaded, it stays on your uploads folder, ready to be used for future designs.

Create a compelling call to action

With Facebook’s 20% text rule, it’s important that you make the most of our available space. This where a compelling call to action text comes in, letting people know what’s in it for them or what they need to do. Use Canva’s text tools to overlay your text over your image and create amazing typography. Try using one of the pre-set textholders and drag and drop them anywhere on your design or create your own typography by choosing and pairing over a hundred fonts in Canva.

Collaborate with a team on your design

Are you working with a social media team for your ad campaigns? Give them editing access to your design so you can collaborate on your ads. It’s as simple as clicking the “Share” button, ticking the box to allow others to edit your design, then sending them the generated link. Collaborators can access your design anytime, from any computer, iPhone or iPad device.
