Ads require putting into perspective the benefits and the call to act on them.  Simply composing ads based on the product or service won’t get you any higher CTR, but knowing your business thoroughly in terms of USP will serve you better in the long run. Using tools like the feature benefit matrix can help you to know the uniqueness of your business and strengths.

Ensure that the landing page is specific to the keyword. The link, content and heading should have highly specific keywords for the ad to get noticed and clicked by target audience.

It will catch the customer’s attention and result in a higher CTR. However take care to not offend, but simply be subtle.

This can increase the CTR of your ad campaign. Adding terms like “Free trial”, “results guaranteed” can give your target customers another reason to click on your ad than navigating towards your competitor.
