  • Ad Espresso ran an experiment where they tested several different length ad copies from one sentence to six paragraphs.
  • After running a poll, the majority of people believed that the shortest ad text would produce the lowest cost per lead.
  • What was found was that mid-long ad text actually produced the lowest CPA and the maximum number of leads. 
    • Poorly performing ad text costs 2.4 times per lead than the best version.
  • Many businesses find good results by starting off with a short ad and then using the feedback from specialists to create longer versions. 
  • Keep in mind that text is only a small part of the ad, image/videos and headlines are generally the most important pieces.
