Most online marketers know that paid ads (whether Google Adwords ads, Facebook ads or any other) must be written in a compelling way that peaks the interest of their target audience. Recently, GM pulled a $10 million advertising account from Facebook, claiming that the ads "don't work." Apparently, the auto industry giant determined that the impact on consumers isn't worth the ad spend. The question is, are Facebook ads really becoming ineffective, or is it the way GM's ads were written that was the problem? Today, the content of an ad (or any written material, including blog posts, articles, etc.) must be tightly targeted and written in a way that grabs the readers attention, plays on their emotions, compels them to want to find out more. Was this simply failure on GM's part to write effective ads, or is it something more?
