Why dropshipping video ads are important?

If you are running Facebook ads and Instagram it is essential to have your videos well crafted around your product that entice your audience to take action. You can see some good examples when searching for a dropshipping product via FB ads reverse engineering { i personally use Adspy}

When you are making a scroll stopper video ad you need to have the following details at hand:

Product link of Aliexpress or your store, video dimension, store logo, product name, taglines, captions.

Next, you need to draw a short storyline, focusing on a running time up to 45 secs where you can add still images and short clips taken from your Supplier or cut and paste from Youtube (not recommended).

Ideally, the best way is to order your own product and shoot a clip from home however that can become too expensive in the long run, especially at the testing phase, where you have 10’s lined up items, costs and time will add up considerably.

My advice is to find a compromise between the time you spend and the cost-related issue, otherwise, I will definitely try to outsource the whole process for peace of mind, I also use Fiveer for this, ClipmanPRO or even better Invideo Ad creator (paid version).

The free alternative is Facebook Video Creation Kit
