Facebook Ad Writing: Fresh Prince of Bridgeport
Facebook advertising is one of the biggest challenges marketers try to master in social media. Getting an ad to stand out among the busy layout of Facebook is a huge challenge in itself; getting a user to click on the ad and converting them to becoming a loyal customer is an even larger challenge. Humor is a very successful way of converting someone to at least “like” the page a company owns.
Recently, Bridgeport Brewing converted me with one of the first Facebook ads I’ve seen in a long time that incorporated wit and humor into their ad.
To me, the re-imagining of the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme song to a Portland beer lover was enough to get the sense that the company is light-hearted, loves craft beer and knows how to have a good time. I reached out to them on Facebook to let them know how much I appreciated that ad.
Later, I tweeted the ad and had a friend chime in with this response.

That’s the sign of a successful Facebook ad.
