Create or Upload Static Ads

For Image and Rich Media ads, you’ll need to upload completed ads with all assets built into them, or request free ads (Image ads only). For all other static ad types, you'll provide image assets during ad creation.

You can create or upload ads either during the process of creating a campaign, or from your ads library. Any ads created through either option will be available to add to future campaigns.

From a your Ads Library

Use the Upload button to add Web Display and Video Ads, Facebook & Instagram Image and Video Ads, Native Ads, and Linkedin Image Ads.
