Currently there are more than 6 million advertisers on Facebook. That is more than any other social media platform.
Why? Because Facebook ads offer massive ROI by allowing you to target your audience by location, demographics, age, gender, interests, behavior, and connections.
But to make this work you have to create highly effective Facebook ads. You have to optimize your ad copy, graphics, CTA, landing pages, and your targeting methods.
However, in this post, I’ll only talk about the first 3 ingredients. I’ll show you some successful Facebook ad examples of multiple brands.
These ads will not only give you an idea about what everyone else is doing but they will also evoke your creativity.
All these Facebook ad examples are broadly categorized into 7 industries. You can refer to the ones your business fits in.
241+ Facebook Ad Examples
You’ll find a combination of photo ads, carousel ads, and video ads on this list. These screenshots are either taken from my own Facebook account or from the Facebook Ads Library.
But before starting, there’s one thing I wanted to talk about – Facebook Ads 20% Text Rule
If you have created ads in Ads Manager, you’ll know about this rule. It states that advertisers can cover their ads’ images with not more than 20% text.
There was a time when this rule was mandatory but now you can easily get past this. You can use more than 20% text in your ad creatives but Facebook does warn you that it might limit your ad reach. In simple terms, the more text in your image, the more will it cost with less distribution.
In this post, you see how advertisers are experimenting with their ad variants to get maximum ROI.
Now let’s just jump right into it…
eCommerce Facebook Ad Examples
eCommerce is one of the most competitive industries today.
And considering the current pandemic (The COVID-19), it is only going to grow. Almost every business is going to be online within the upcoming years.
To cut through this noise, you need to find creative ways to reach your audience. Keep an eye out for recent trends, test multiple variants of your ads, and take inspiration from the following Facebook ad examples.

This Facebook ad also doesn’t sell the product directly. They aren’t telling you to buy your themed box but asking you to see what it has.
This is a rather unique e-commerce ad on this list of Facebook ad examples. Most apparel brands use models to show their clothes. It does work but there is always room to experiment.

Ideally, most people focus on offering just 1 thing but there are no restrictions. You can try and work multiple angles in your Facebook ad.
125. Eventbrite for Organizers
A carousel ad with fun and creative illustrations. This ad doesn’t have many words but their graphics convey the brand message easily.

213. Daily Harvest
Daily Harvest is promoting their plant-based ice-creams in this ad. Their creative just features multiple images of their product with no text.
