  122. 122. Better ads • Use smiling people • Use high contrast & colorful photos • Use photos that show the benefit of the product/service, not spammy call- to-action • Address an emotion • Use symbolic images • No more than 20% text on image • Use the image to catch their attention & “sell” them on clicking the ad NOT convince them to buy. You’ll use your sales funnel for that.
