When creating an Ad, try searching online for how the company brands their product.
I created an ad for a Skagen watch.
After I researched what this companies branding looked like, I created and edited a photo that would fit with the business. With a black backdrop, placed my watch on some flooring that simulated granite. I placed a continuous light in front of the subject and it created a beautiful glow on the watch.
I sharpened this image and added some highlights to the face of the watch so that it would stand out more against the black background. I edited out some of the background so that it was fully black.
