Before you even begin planning your next video production, you need a basic understanding of this platform to take full advantage of the paid alternatives because there are many options and particular creative limitations. Video advertising nowadays has become a source of monetization.
Google has implemented several modifications in recent years that have significantly increased the value of YouTube advertising. Let’s look at it.
Using Users’ Search History to Target
Google announced that it would enable advertisers to reach more YouTube users, particularly on mobile devices, where 50% of YouTube views occur. The most significant change that was announced was that in addition to the viewing habits that YouTube already targets, advertisers would be able to target viewers based on their Google search histories.
Advertisements can now be directed at people recently looking for a specific good or service. A viewer may be more inclined to watch a complete video ad or click through to the website if the ad’s topic is closely relevant to a search they have been conducting.
You only need to look at podcasts and the newest social media app, Clubhouse, to see how the audio has expanded recently. While we advise beginning with a video ad, you can later consider integrating audio once you’ve nailed your brand voice and discovered what your audience responds to the most.
Improved Models for Data Attribution
To help you more accurately gauge how consumers interact with your ads, Google has also improved the data attribution methodology for YouTube. Additionally, you can calculate cost-per-conversion and view the effectiveness of your YouTube advertisements alongside the attribution statistics for your Search and Shopping campaigns.
Types of YouTube Video Advertisements
You can invest in several different sorts of video adverts on YouTube. Here are some of them-
1. Ads for video discovery
Discovering videos YouTube adverts can be seen on the YouTube homepage, search results pages, and on YouTube video watch sites as related videos.
2.TrueView In-Stream Ads 2. (Skippable Ads)
On YouTube, TrueView advertising is the most common kind of video advert. You can readily adjust videos to offer a range of content. Advertisers only pay for TrueView advertising when users watch or interact with them (for instance, by clicking on a call-to-action).
Skippable TrueView commercials on YouTube must be between 12 and 6 minutes long.
Before someone watches the YouTube video they’ve chosen, TrueView in-stream advertisements start playing. After five seconds, viewers occasionally have the opportunity to skip the ad. Additionally, you can direct them to play on any website that is a part of the Google Display Network (GDN) or has acquired Google video ad space.
3. In-Stream Ads That Can’t Be Skippable
Non-skippable advertisements may start before, during, or following the main video. They may last for 15 to 20 seconds.
In the middle of a YouTube video that is 10 minutes or longer, there are non-skippable mid-roll video adverts. Viewers will notice a five-second countdown on the desktop and yellow marks indicating the locations of the advertising on the mobile app.
The shortest YouTube video ad available to you is called a bumper. These advertisements run for only six seconds each before a viewer’s selected video. You cannot skip it.
