This social network/video hosting should, therefore, be included in every marketing strategy in order to make their product visible and build brand awareness, and what can get better than a video commercial?
Nonetheless, we know that video AdWords can sound a little intimidating to beginners and that’s why we’re sharing a free, easy step-by-step tutorial with you.
Until you know it you can manage YouTube Campaigns! And we’ll be taking you through the entire process:
Want to see your company on YouTube but you don’t know exactly how to make it happen? Try out an incredible, animated commercial. They ‘re entertaining, engaging, and captivating. Since it’s not just how much money you ‘re charging to YouTube, the video material will be of a high standard and exclusive in order to stand out from millions of other online videos right now.
Because YouTube is one of the biggest search engines, as we said, and everyone wants to be there. We love to make exclusive videos at Yum Yum Videos which will draw, sell, and close more deals. Just as we did with the animation of Tortilla Land which was such a hit that our company enabled us to create a video testimonial about it.
Beyond the usual advertisement, there’s another form of material that you may advertise: video explainers. They work great to acquaint viewers with your product but in just a few minutes, they give a message.
For more perspective, take a peek at our own video explainer:
- Learning the Terms: Before jumping into all of the contexts of the Campaign, first, you’d have to understand all the basic concepts of video Adwords. The main YouTube ad forms are called TrueView, and in-stream and content exploration are subtypes. TrueView ‘s magic is that it provides the viewer the capacity to pick whatever they want to look at, meaning you won’t pay for undesired views.
- In-stream ads: They are the advertisements that you encounter before, after or after viewing a YouTube video and for the first 5 seconds, you may opt to miss them. For Adwords for content, whether it’s quicker and someone engages with it, you’ll just pay if someone sees 30 seconds of your ad or the whole film.
Additionally, you can incorporate an overlay of Calls-To-Action (CTA) to invite people to access your website or other video material. Adding a headline text with a connection, for example, would allow audiences to visit your homepage and close further sales. Giving it a go!
- Video Discovery Ads: These are the ads that appear when you search for something on YouTube or in the section about the related videos. Often, they appear on the homepage of YouTube and on partner pages. They are shown with a thumbnail picture and a description so you can take that into consideration and label it with an enticing description and a nice picture to encourage people to watch your film.
- Bumper Ads: There is also another format called Bumper Advertising where they show before or after a YouTube video, as in-stream videos. The major difference is that they cannot be skipped and are no longer than six seconds. In this case, you can compensate through CPM bidding (Cost-per – thousand views) depending on perceptions, which ensures you compensate each time the video ad is viewed 1000 times.
- Tip: YouTube also offers ways to get free promotions. This you can do by offering attractive content that may appear in organic searches. Educational videos, a good way to do that is. This is a perfect opportunity to achieve a higher ranking on YouTube as it is informative and will meet the desires of the viewers by offering valuable knowledge

Consider how much money you want to pay on advertising on YouTube. Smart advice here is, to begin with, a limited budget and increase it later if you are pleased with the performance and decide to extend it. Go ahead then and pick a distribution method for your ad: normal or accelerated, that means displaying it equally over time or faster.
Where Will You See the Ad?
You can select either YouTube or YouTube videos to search for. When someone looks up a particular keyword, the first option will show your ad in the search results. The other displays the ad before or after YouTube videos and other Google channels.

Link the URL of the Video
Your video ad will need to be uploaded to your YouTube channel as we explained. Then you can paste the URL here and pick whether you want it to play as an In-stream ad or as an exploration picture.
Unless you adjust it, your YouTube Ad will show up on all your mobile devices. When you don’t want to show on mobile apps, you can raise or decrease this choice even though we don’t suggest it because you would lose a good opportunity. Roughly 70 percent of the videos are currently watched in the mobile YouTube app, so be sure to have mobile-friendly content!
When to Run Your Ad
You may decide when to start running your ad in the Advanced Configuration portion, and when to finish it. There’s even an opportunity to schedule daytime specific times to display your ad. For example, during the night you can shut it down and resume it in the morning or in the daytime, which is always dependent on your marketing strategy.
Cost per View
The Cost-per-view rate, also known as CPV, is the maximum amount you’ll pay if someone watches your ad’s first 30 seconds, or the entire duration if it’s shorter, or if someone interacts with any part of your video ad. For more information on Bidding and CPV please click here. Our advice is to continue with a low price and then raise it for better performance later on.
