Ad Copy Test

The mark of a great product ad is one that not only includes an attractive image but also a string of text that piques the reader’s curiosity. Essentially, the written copy on an ad has the key role of influencing the way in which the audience understands and recalls the benefits of a product or service after having seen a visually appealing ad. Effective ad copy should therefore generate enough awareness and interest among target groups to learn more about the product and eventually purchase it.

As such, testing your ad copy before releasing them helps you determine whether your audience is receiving the intended message about your product or service and if it compels them to follow your call to action (CTA). Avoid detrimental misinterpretations from the get-go and launch engaging copy to make the most of your ad spend. The Ad Copy Test is used for:

  • Finding the best copy for your ads.
  • Comparing respondent attitudes to each ad copy.
  • Benchmarking ad copy against good performers.
  • Receiving feedback regarding what consumers liked or disliked about your ad copy.
