It’s a Social ad, it’s a Display ad, no — it’s a Social Display ad!
We’re here to talk about the love child of cool programmatic technology and why it’s a great tactic to add to your advertising strategy.
We’ll be covering:
Social Display ads are a type of ad that configures your existing social media posts (or ads) and delivers them as programmatic display banner ads.
Whether your campaign objective is to create brand awareness, retarget or drive conversions, it is an efficient way to showcase your brand around the internet.
Social Display ads pull content directly from the channels and display them dynamically.
Take a look at big brands leveraging the different formats currently offered on social channels:

#1: Saves Time (and Money)
When you do not have the time nor resources to generate custom display creative for a holiday, event, or cultural moment, Social Display Ads can generate production-ready creative in minutes, deriving it directly from your social media posts.
Your team won’t have to spend extra time designing from scratch, which saves you production costs.
All you need to do is share your already created social post with our team at War Room, and voila — we have a Social Display ad ready to go!
#2: Combat Ad Fatigue
Ad studies show that Social Display Ads outperform traditional banner ads. Social Display can increase Click-Through Rate (CTR) and give your marketing efforts a boost.
#4: Brand Consistency
If you dip into your social feed library and leverage your existing, branded visual content—for example, by adding icons from Flaticon to your display ads or using a design from the feed and adding text—you’ll be sure to achieve brand consistency. Your brand’s creative language will be cohesive across all channels.
#5: Extended Ad Reach
If you’re an existing client with War Room, you don’t need to wait for a Request For Proposal (RFP) or planning cycle to add on Social Display to your existing, active programmatic campaign. It will be an easy, plug-and-play! Get in touch with your Account Manager now.
