3 Easy Ways to Get a Creative Ad Reviewed and Approved


In the midst of advertising “noise,” creativity is the only way you can make your creative ad stand out. 

The audience today is used to ads. From billboards to the screens of their laptops, people are constantly bombarded with the advertising efforts of various brands. It’s to the point that most people don’t even register the message they are trying to put out since it is literally reduced to noise in the background. 

However, you can cut through this noise by constructing a creative ad. As the name suggests, this ad will have creativity instilled in it to the core. 

But creativity is not the only indispensable component of such an ad. Another thing that is required for the entire process of creating a creative ad – including review and approval – is collaboration. 

Today, we’ll look at the easiest ways to maximize collaboration between you and your marketing team working on a creative ad, especially for the review and approval of it. 

So, let’s get into it!


The Importance of a Creative Ad

A creative ad is critical if you want the audience to resonate with your brand message. Think of it yourself. Do you remember any ads that didn’t invoke a feeling of awe within you? Aside from the terrible ones, all ads that the audience ends up retaining are the ones that employ creativity and use it to get their message across. 

Creativity itself has multiple layers to it. It is an amalgamation of artistic value, originality, flexibility, and collaboration.

Collaboration streamlines the process of bringing a creative ad to life. Collaboration is exactly what the following tips will help you with when reviewing and approving your ad!


Getting a Creative Ad Reviewed and Approved

I’m sure that you are bursting with curiosity to know what are the easy ways that we keep talking about by this point. Let’s turn to those now. 


  • Using GoVisually.

  • Involve as many people as possible.

Usually, involving too many people in a project is a recipe for disaster. However, not when you want to make your ad as creative as people! Having different people on board is only going to maximize your ad’s quality, originality, and creativity. 

Therefore, take the help of as many people as possible during the reviewing and approval process. Every suggestion matters, so pay attention to everything your reviewers have to say. An easy way to do this is to centralize all the feedback you get in one place. You can use an app like Trello to organize all of this better and gain a clear and concise overview of the progress of your creative ad. 


  • Visualize… everything.

Another simple yet straightforward way to get a review and approval for your creative ad is to visualize everything for your reviewers. The more visually representative you are with your ideas, the better the other party can understand your thought process. Besides, what is a creative ad if one cannot watch it coming to life?

There are multiple ways that you can do this. The easiest and most straightforward way would be to create a detailed storyboard/outline of the ad and share that with the reviewers. This way, they will get a better understanding of what the ad is meant to convey. Additionally, getting a review this way is also easier, as you can know exactly what changes to make and during which parts. 


The Bottom Line

Anything can become more complicated when creativity comes into question. A creative process questions the norms and practices we usually employ to get the work done. Therefore, when making a creative ad, you should think out of the box to get the best results. 

By collaborating, you can construct something truly unforgettable. The tips mentioned above will help you create a better experience for everyone involved! 

Good luck with your next creative Ad set!
