When a specific ad creative strategy is delivering results, why reinvent the wheel? It pays to replicate what works. One particular image, video, or ad copy message can take on new life when you repurpose it using different ad types or additional channels.

Many of the top direct response advertisers on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter take the results of strategic creative testing and apply their learnings across different campaigns and advertising channels to scale their success. What are some ways you can adopt this strategy to more efficiently scale your campaigns? Here are a few real world examples to get you started.

Two Dots unifies two ads with one creative element

The mobile game Two Dots introduces viewers to its challenges through the colorful and fun Facebook video ad below. The video showcases the game’s design, levels, and characters. Most importantly, it offers a glimpse of different levels and gameplay to give prospective new users a taste of the experience they’ll get after clicking through to the app store ad installing the game.

Two Dots replicates this idea in its Twitter ad below. Twitter’s mobile app card enables new users to easily install games and apps, so quickly conveying the game’s appeal is vital for increasing conversions. This ad showcases what Two Dots is all about and gives viewers a preview of gameplay by using an image in the same creative style as the video in Two Dots’ Facebook ad. Through repurposing similar creative elements in ads on multiple channels, Two Dots can more efficiently win new users by previewing its game using a tailored, yet unified strategy.
