Meta Rolls Out New Ad Options Within Reels As Short Clips Gain Momentum On Facebook And Instagram

It can be said without any doubt that short-form videos are trending on leading social media apps.

Be it Facebook or Instagram, Meta says such content is making it big and that’s why it’s planning on introducing some more ad options within its reels.

The goal is to assist advertisers to maximize marketing opportunities within such content.

For starters, the tech giant is allowing its Click to Messenger ads to drive direct inbox content through Reels. This is found within the Facebook app’s short videos and is hoped to allow businesses to get the reach they deserve.

Recently, we saw an example published that showcased how the Click to Messenger ads were going to entail a new CTA feature. And that is what would drive more contact through private chats and lean toward greater popularity of short videos and DM interactions.

This is also related to the second addition where Meta plans on tweaking its WhatsApp conversions so it can be up for grabs on ads witnessed across Facebook Reels.

The company recently explained how they adore showcasing ads on Click to Messenger to those that are likely to begin chats with businesses on WhatsApp, Instagram, and even Messenger.

Thanks to this new update, Meta’s advertisers that make use of sales, traffic, or engagement objectives can now add the ‘Send a Message’ feature to Facebook Reels ads so it gives more people options to begin a chat in the app, right through the ad.

This provides a new way for brands to better focus on the platform as it turns it into their primary channel for contact which is seen as a new step that gives rise to more growth and business endeavors straight from the app.

As mentioned in the past, there are now more and more people on social media apps that share content through DMs as compared to sharing content across news feeds. This allows for a huge shift in overall online interactions. Moreover, the company adds how it ends up being translated to brand conversions.

A recently published survey showed how people are keener on sharing data through DMs as compared to sharing on public newsfeeds. And that is what has led to a huge shift in the overall interactions conducted online.

This is also what helps in brand conversion as a new survey showed that almost 50% of viewers looking at Reels made contact through DMs to brands after seeing a particular Reel on the app.

So now, they’re adding WhatsApp to the mix as Meta sees this as a broad endeavor to maximize business messaging opportunities. This happens to be an element that is still so significant and stands its ground against other competitors.

Furthermore, the company is making room for more support for advertising on Facebook Reels after the engagement objective is more widely seen. This gives more chances to measure reactions, likes, and more while comparing it to engagement seen through ads and more campaigns.
