We can reach almost 80% of the internet by using the platform for advertising.

However, knowing where to start with creating ads can sometimes be a struggle if you are feeling uninspired.

It happens. It’s part of a marketers life. It probably even happened to Don Draper now and then.

When it happens, sometimes it can help to have a peek at what other companies are doing to give you some inspiration.

We’ve put this post together with 30 Facebook ad examples from advertisers in all kinds of different verticals for you to use and hopefully draw some creativity from. We offer Facebook Ads Management as service, so please feel free to reach out to us if you need help with your campaigns.
