How do I create great content for my ads?
A guide to creating successful Ads
At Chuffed, we're currently giving a limited number of campaigners the chance to promote their campaigns through our advertising service, Chuffed Amplify. It's a great way to raise funds outside of your own networks. But what do you need to create a great ad?
1. A Short, Engaging Video:
A 1 minute video really helps people to connect with your campaign. It's a great way to tell your story in a concise manner, whilst also help people understand more about your project. It helps give donors confidence in your campaign if they can see who's behind it, and how a campaigner will be using the funds to create positive change. Be authentic, engaging, clear about your positive change and concise. Ideally, if you can add subtitles, that will help too.

2. 5-10 Authentic Images:
You will need 5-10 authentic images for your ad. These images should be your own, and should showcase yourself, your team and the beneficiary/beneficiaries of your work. The best types of photos are those that show people directly!

3. Inspiring Written Content:
It's so important to have the right kind of content for your campaign page. You can find a good guide on how to craft engaging copy here: https://chuffed.org/academy/articles/detail/steps-to-writing-an-awesome-non-profit-crowdfunding-pitch
We can review the copy to ensure it's compelling. However, it's best for you to create the copy so that you can clearly communicate your vision and passion.
