The Ad Creative widget is an AdStage cross-network widget that shows actual ad visuals just as they appear to your audience in the native network, along with selected ad-level metrics. You can choose specific ads to display or let Report determine the ads based on specific criteria like “Top 2 ads based on Conversion Rate.” 

How does it work?

Just add the Ad Creative widget to any current or new dashboard in which you want to show the your ad visuals. Report will automatically order and show your ads and selected metrics, based on the criteria you enter. 

What are some common ways to use the Ad Creative widget?

Show what converts: Display your top performing ads to show your clients or team members what copy and imagery results in the most conversions. 

Analyze campaigns: Review both high and low performing ad to discover any patterns in the visuals that might contribute to performance. 

Show value to clients: Demonstrate your creative and relevant ads, along with the performance of each.
