CEO and Founder of Pattern89, R.J. Talyor, unravels big data that reveals specific creative insights into how marketers are optimizing high-performing ads at this time.

Optimize social media ads What Works Now in Social Media Ads According to Big Data

Tired of spending marketing dollars on under-performing ads? Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way you could predict what works and reduce wasteful marketing spend?
R.J. Talyor, CEO and Founder of Pattern89, leverage AI’s power and deep dives into creative analytics to help advertisers optimize top-performing social media ads. Most marketers focus on their brand, which is understandable. However, creative is responsible for 47% of ad performance. So, it makes sense that you spend more time (and fewer dollars) optimizing the creative elements of your ads to drive the most engagement.
With more data than there are stars in the galaxy, Pattern89 can predict what will work best with over 95% accuracy. Of course, the creative recipe that works for one advertiser may not work as well for the next. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use data and artificial intelligence to predict what will work, optimize ads, and get more clicks.
