Advice from Media Masters

“I would advise advertisers to continue advertising because marketing is all about sales, and of course a good ad with products well on display helps a lot.” – Akyiira
“Most important is to keep it very simple and clean. Also, always have your next ad radically different from your last. Change the background colors, and try to not add more than one word on the image.” – Amore

“I would advise potential ad buyers to keep it short, sweet and captivating. Try to make sure your own image is something you would want to look twice at.” – Yalla
“I always like to show the face of the avatar, because people are attracted to faces, both in real ads and IMVU ads. Use eye-catching colors, colors with life and that attract your target audience, for example my store is female, so I like to use more pink and softer colors.” – Nephem
“The ads from the advertising program helped me expand my business and reach new potential clients. The important thing is to make an image that captivates the attention and makes us feel ‘something’ about the product.” – Lusia
“I focus on only one piece of clothing, which I see is in fashion and that draws attention. I put the total emphasis on the clothing, leaving it to shine alone, colors that match. It all depends on what you want to convey to your audience. I don’t usually put scenarios behind to avoid distraction but if there is, it is essential that it does not stand out more than the clothes.” – Ewes

And as the last tip, give yourself time to edit and don’t rush anything.” – Lorei

“My best tip would be to make sure the ad is eye catching but simple, and shows your target audience what your products can do for them.

Lastly, keep your copy and call to action short, precise and consistent with your imagery!” – Form

Just remember to keep it on brand for you!” – MissMaya
