    Keep it Simple

    There are only 3 parts to creating your ad.  See sections below.

    • Write a Title that will attract attention
    • Write a body that is consistent with the title and that will make people want more information
    • Create a "Call to Action" by inserting hyperlinks in your ad body that direct prospects to a Lead Capture Landing Page

    Write a Title

    • Compose a title that will attract prospect's attention.  If no one pays attention to your title they will never see your ad.
    • Enter your Marketing Title into the Title field.
