Creative Best Practices
Video Unit

• Focus on driving brand awareness and engagement
• Feature a video that is visually appealing and drives an emotional connection
• Consider including a concise attention-grabbing graphic/headline at the very beginning of the video
• Customize the top of the unit (300x80px) to drive brand awareness and engagement, such as a photo, logo, and a highly visible call-to-action button - CTAs should be short, meaningful and action-oriented
