00:00 Advanced reports for Holiday planning introduction

08:25: Utilizing top spending reports to identify successful trends, and guide next steps for the holidays this year

Additional tips and recommendations:

  • Videos and GIFs are a great way to catch users' attention, especially during the busy holiday season.

  • As we approach the holidays, lean into successful trends as BFCM is the most competitive time of the year, and it will be more expensive to test bigger swings.

  • Rely on creatives you know your audience resonates strongly with as they're about to be served way more ads than they typically are throughout the year, so your ads need to fight harder through the busier and louder environments

  • Motion's comparative reports will help guide your creative direction as you can gain a deeper understanding into which themes are the most successful for your account, such as:

    • Which products you should feature/focus the most on based on performance; users want the best deal on your best sellers

    • How to phrase your BFCM sales if you've previously tested promotional messaging (ie. "Up to X% off" vs "Now only $X" or "Our biggest sale of the year" vs "Our Black Friday sale")
