Best Practices for X Advertising

Best Practices for Advertising on X

With Elon Musk’s recent rebrand from Twitter to X, we thought we’d share out best practices for advertising on X. It’s important to note, however, that X isn’t brand safe for every advertiser and this should be something that you consider carefully before using it.

  1. Carefully consider your campaign targeting
    B2B advertisers on X need to understand the targeting options and be sure that there is good alignment between their commercial target audiences and the segments that X provides.
  2. Keep ad copy concise
    Some of the best performing ads are only 50-100 characters.
  3. Include a strong call-to-action
    Be clear and straightforward with your desired action.
  4. Avoid clickable exit points
    Keep your ad free of hashtags and mentions, they can be distracting to the audience.
  5. Incorporate strong visuals
    It might sound obvious but make your sure you’re campaign creative stands out.
  6. Utilise video
    A 15-second video with clear branding is one of the most impactful media types.
  7. Vary your creative and ad copy
    We recommend running your campaign with at least 3 creative variants with varying ad copy.
  8. Monitor and optimise your campaign
    Regularly monitor your campaign performance and make optimisations based on key metrics.

Find out how we can help your B2B business to advertise on X.
