Understanding Ad Fatigue and How to Combat It in Meta Ads

Hey there, fellow marketers!

Are your Meta Ads starting to feel stale? Are you noticing a drop in engagement and a rise in costs?

You might be dealing with the dreaded ad fatigue. But don’t worry!

I'm here to break it down and give you the tools to fight back.

What is Ad Fatigue?

Ad fatigue happens when your audience sees your ads so often they ignore them. It's like hearing the same song on repeat—eventually, you want to change the station.

In Meta Ads, this means higher costs and lower returns. Not cool, right?

How to Spot Ad Fatigue

Look out for these telltale signs:

  • Declining CTR: If your click-through rates drop, your audience is losing interest.

  • Rising CPC: Higher costs per click mean your ads are becoming less effective.

  • Lower Engagement: Fewer likes, shares, and comments? That’s ad fatigue knocking on your door.

  • High Frequency: If people see your ad too many times, they’ll start tuning it out.

How to Combat Ad Fatigue

Ready to freshen things up? Here’s how:

1. Rotate Your Creatives: Keep things fresh by regularly changing your ad images, videos, and copy. Variety is the spice of life!

2. Segment Your Audience: Tailor your ads to different audience segments. Personalized content is always more engaging.

3. Use Dynamic Ads: Meta’s dynamic ads show different versions of your ad to different people. This keeps your content fresh and engaging.

4. A/B Testing: Always be testing! Find out what works best by experimenting with different ad variations.

5. Leverage Lookalike Audiences: Expand your reach with lookalike audiences who share traits with your current customers but haven’t seen your ads yet.

6. Seasonal and Topical Campaigns: Align your ads with current events, seasons, or trending topics. Relevance is key!

7. Smart Retargeting: Balance retargeting with new customer acquisition to avoid overexposing your audience.

8. Monitor Metrics: Monitor your ad performance. Regularly check your CTR, CPC, engagement rates, and frequency to spot fatigue early.

9. Refresh Copy and Design: Even small ad copy and design changes can make a big difference. Mix it up with new headlines, calls to action, and visuals.

Ad fatigue is a common challenge, but you can keep your campaigns fresh and effective with the right strategies

Rotate your creatives, segment your audience, and monitor your metrics to ensure your ads remain captivating and converting.


Happy Monday!

Hope you had a great weekend, and had some good time to recover from a stressful week.

Over the years, I’ve spoken to a lot of Founders and have interviewed some, and one of the things I noticed Founders struggle with, especially during the initial phase while starting up when they’re most likely a solo Founder is—copywriting.

Sure, we now live in an era of AI and GPTs, but the output is only as good as your inputs (prompts). If you aren’t providing it with clear instructions, you’re going to receive output that sounds like it was written by a robot—not a human. I still believe it can’t entirely replace copywriters, and hiring a good copywriter is worth it even today, but this works really well for Founders that start off with the tight budget.

So for today, I’ll share a GPT4 prompt that I created last night, which can generate features/benefits for your product—an essential part of your website or a landing page.

Alright, let’s get into it..

đź’ˇ Benefits/Features - Show off the benefits AND features of your products to let readers know how their life can transform for the better. Remember, both benefits and features are important, depending on the awareness stage of the customer (e.g. problem-unaware readers are swayed by benefits, but solution-aware readers need to know how the features bring about the benefits)

ChatGPT4 Prompt:

You are CopyGPT, and your job is to help me write marketing content like a professional copywriter.

Read and analyse the link to my product: [link to a product page]

Now help me write benefits/features focused marketing copy.

Follow the format below:

  • [title] Short title that says something interesting about related to the product or the problems it solves

  • [description] Short description to expand on the title above

  • [benefit 1 title] Short title mentioning a benefit or feature of the product

  • [benefit 1 description] Short description regarding the above benefit or feature

  • [benefit 2 title] Second short title mentioning a benefit or feature of the product

  • [benefit 2 description] Second short description regarding the above benefit or feature

  • [benefit 3 title]Third short title mentioning a benefit or feature of the product

  • [benefit 3 description] Third short description regarding the above benefit or feature

In addition, replicate the voice and tone of the content you read in the url.
