The first thing any good marketer does before beginning a campaign is research what is already working for competitors. Your own ads don’t need to reinvent the wheel; that’s probably not the best use of your time anyway.
Lawrence Apointe from the Marketing Mansion figured out a great trick to spy on your competitors’ Facebook ads using the Facebook app. This is helpful for identifying the creative content other brands are using to generate massive revenue on Facebook. You can use these insights to inform your own campaigns.
