If you have few creatives and not a lot of budget, test new creatives within your usual ad sets. If you have a large amount of budget, take 5-10% of your budget to create a creative system: bundle new iterations into one ad set (or multiple ad sets each with 1 creative) and compare to your best-performing creatives.

Often the creative team looks at the look and feel while the UA team looks at the performance. You want to combine the best of both sides.


Recommended Creative Lifecycle

Creative Evolution: define why the creative worked.

Each creative will get fatigue, timing will depend on the creative and on the app itself.

KPI chosen: D7 ROAS, and also CTR. Bidalgo also estimates success with % of ad spend.


Creative Testing/Hacking

  1. Test several ads to find best performing
  1. [💎@06:02] Identify the best performing creative elements (example Merge Dragons: particles, hand icon, land-healing) of an ad creative so you can re-use them in other creatives.

If not much budget and fewer creatives: test in your regular activity

If more budget: plan 5-10% and create a new iteration system where you bundle new creatives into 1 adset (or multiple ad sets each with one creative) and compare to top performing creative for benchmark.

In order to sync the UA and Creative team, set a weekly meeting with designers.


Use Placements Behavior

Look at the different placements to find the best performance channels (example: audience network).

Always look at the behavior first, because it drives the best practices.


Effective Creative Production Process

  1. Find top performing ad
  2. Iterations A/B/C of top performing ad and scale them
  3. [💎@31:45] Keep iterating on a creative if scaling works, stop otherwise

Seasonal creatives: can have an impact. Implement on top performing ad with specific offer that can be valid later (so more about the offer than the season?). Hard to test.

Communication with designer: build a bi-weekly process/call to figure out together what’s next. Have a defined format for these meetings.

Advocate 80% of effort overall to what you know works. Allocate 20% for experimentation overall (including new channels).
