Digital advertising is undergoing a major transformation thanks to the power of creative AI. With AI's help, marketers can create more personalized and relevant ads than ever before.
Which is the best between the two? While each boasts features and competitive advantages, TikTok ads appear to be better for brand advertising in 2022. TikTok has cheaper costs per impressions, clicks, and conversion compared to Facebook. Moreover, TikTok has a huge organic reach and an almost similar user-friendly interface to Instagram. Still, the choice remains with individual brands with different needs and varying strategies to achieve their market goals.Pencil AI is mindful that deciding between Facebook Ads and TikTok Ads is not as uncomplicated as it may appear. However, what we know is that successful digital marketing campaigns just test and retest more ad creatives than the competition. This takes time, money, and painful effort, but with Pencil AI's testing assistance, you can create an endless stream of effective ad creatives for less. Instead of burning through your advertising budget testing and time waiting for generic content, try Pencil AI here. Contact us for more information.
