Facebook videos: from cats knocking fragile objects off tables to a wide range of "life-changing" hacks, you can love them or hate them.

But you can't ignore them.

And neither can your customers.  

Who hasn't fallen into a deep Facebook video rabbit-hole, emerging back from the screen after many minutes (or maybe hours)?

Facebook videos can be entertaining, educational, and even commercial.

They're certainly engaging, no matter the topic. 

With the right strategy, they are a powerful tool to boost your ecommerce site's reach.

And the data proves that video ads are really paying off. 

A 2021 study from Wyzowl shows that:

  • 87% of video marketers said that video gives them a strong return on investment (ROI),
  • 84% of consumers said that a brand’s video convinced them to buy a product or service,
  • 69% of consumers said they’d prefer to learn about a product or service through video instead of other channels like articles, downloads, webinars, or sales calls.

If you’re an ecommerce site owner, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to capitalize on the power of video ads and engage directly with your customers.

If you’re not a professional editor, creating Facebook video ads by yourself can sound overwhelming.

But the solutions are online: there are thousand ways to create entertaining video ads.

And some of them are free, too.

We’re going to show you 16 of the best Facebook video ads tools to level up your video making skills. 

By the time you’re done, you’ll know the perfect Facebook video ads creator to suit your ecommerce sites' needs.
