Success leaves clues.
This is a wildly popular quote from Mr. Tony Robbins you’ve likely heard several dozen times.
This can be applied to advertising on Facebook (or anywhere for that matter).
There are quite a few Facebook ad spy tools on the market to let you do just that — spy on others (competitors) ads.
This allows you to see what is working, and what is not. You do not need to start from zero, as you can model what others are doing or have done in the past. This alone can save you a considerable amount of time and money. Not to mention, give you plenty of ideas for different angles you want to take.
You can look at advertisers outside your industry to see what is working for them, and see if you can adapt to fit to your industry.
There are plenty of paid tools on the market, and I recently recorded a video of a FREE ad spy tool for Facebook. This free tool also allows you to spy on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Yahoo ads. It’s a slick tool that I now use daily, since I stumbled upon it just a few short weeks ago.
They claim to have the largest creative database for competitor ad spy research. You can search ads by filtering ad type, country, creative type, industry type, Call to Action, and time. It amazes me that this tool is free as I have seen paid tools that don’t offer half the features this one does.
In the video, I also share a paid Facebook ads spy tool that is quite similar to the free one. With a couple key difference. It allows you to search my funnel builder, which is quite neat. The upgraded version also allows you to spy on Google ads and YouTube ads, which is the first tool I’ve seen that offers that.
These spy tools come and go as it seems like once Facebook catches wind of them, they are shut down rather quickly.
I’d act quick, and watch the video review of both down below.
Either of these tools should save you quite a bit of time AND money.
Don’t say I never did anything for you.
