Create custom Adwerx ads (even if you’re not a designer!)

The Adwerx ad builder is brilliantly simple to use when creating the digital ads to promote your brand. Not to toot our own horn or anything, but a lot of hard work went into making it that way.

We made it simple because… well, you are not a graphic designer. While you know what looks good, you don’t have time to build custom graphics. What matters is that you get your brand out there, creating awareness and being top-of-mind with the folks in your designated geography and sphere of influence.

But let’s face it: our basic ads are a tad… basic. (We can say that, right?)

We do however allow you to upload custom files to give you that unique look. Many of our Adwerx customers use this, creating some one-of-a-kind ways to stay top-of-mind in their markets. And the creativity they show is pretty inspiring. Once you are designing a custom ad, there are no limits, other than the legal requirements each state has on your branding, and any regulations unique to your field.

Custom ads on the Adwerx platform let you promote specific aspects of your business, or reflect seasonal messaging. If  you are advertising to your sphere, you can say ‘thanks’ or remind them about an upcoming event.

Find a designer for your own custom ad

So just how did they build these custom ads, you ask? Well, a few of them have graphic designers on staff. But many of them do not! There are many resources out there to help you get a custom look, without hiring a full time graphic designer or expensive agency.

Here are three such resources we recommend:
