Any advertiser that creates and manages display or social campaigns can tell you that one of the most important parts of the planning and strategy process is creating mockups. This is crucial in ensuring that the vision and goal of an ad unit is there when you bring ad creative to life. Facebook has recently released a new solution to help advertisers in this process with the Creative Hub.
The Creative Hub allows you to create mockups for any Facebook or Instagram ad unit easily. Below is the full list of current mockup ad units that are supported.
Once you have a mockup created, you can then save it for later use and generate a link that can be shared with anyone. As an example, let’s walk through a mockup right now.
First, we’ll click create mockup and choose the website link option.
Within the mockup tool, all of the elements of a Facebook or Instagram Ad unit are available. Below we put in some example text and imagery for our mockup link ad.
Once saved, you’ll then be presented with an exact replica of a Facebook or Instagram ad.
Notice on the top of the mockup, you can click the arrow button to generate a link for a live preview. Click here to see our shareable link for the example ad. You also have the option of sending the ad to your mobile device and viewing the ad preview directly in your Facebook app. This is perfect for understanding the mobile experience of your ad creative.
