How I found these ads

I’ve used a number of different Facebook competitive intelligence tools, but my new favorite by far is AdSector. You can search their massive ad database by keyword, advertiser, or publisher. You can filter by country, ad type, affiliate network, tracking system used, ecommerce platform, and a bunch more. You can sort ads by number of likes, shares, comments, reach, newest, and longest running.

It’s incredibly powerful and getting better every day.

Cost for access is $249/month, which is a steal for the value of the ad data (we pay $400/month for some other competitive research tools). Is it worth the money? 100%.

Update:

AdSector (the competitive intelligence tool we used to find these ads) has agreed to offer our readers a special deal. Use the coupon code “74OFF” to save $74/month.
