Facebook Ad Campaign from Thumbtack

Key Takeaways

  • Because Thumbtack is a marketplace for a wide variety of services, having great professionals for each type of service is crucial to their success. Instead of putting out a general ad for every type of professional, they focus on one profession per ad so the messaging is targeted & they can increase their chances of getting that specific kind of professional.
  • Each of the ads has the same formula, but with the images & profession-specific text swapped out.
  • The formula is: they state that they need more of "this type of" professional to work with clients. Then, they say to "Register Now for free to get new client work. Then they put a related photo followed by the headline formula "Are You A [Specific Type of Professional]?" & finish with "Sign up for free" text underneath.
  • The headline is simply calling out the audience. They are no benefits or details implied. Because they're targeting a very specific type of person, they're betting that calling them out is enough to get their attention & then, in the description they discuss the main draw of getting new clients.
