Get to know YouTube video ads:

Get to know the platform a bit before you start advertising on YouTube. YouTube offers a few different types of video ads, each with its own requirements and its own advantages and disadvantages:

  • Video Discovery – These are a form of search ads. They are video ads that appear at the top of search results or in the list of related videos. When a viewer opens one of these up to watch, they will also see a related banner ad next to the video viewer.
  • In-Stream Ads – These ads play automatically before the viewer watches a regular YouTube video. In most cases, they can choose to skip the ad after five seconds so it’s important to make those first five seconds count.
  • Preroll Ads – These videos can’t be skipped but they can only be 10-20 seconds long, depending on whether they appear in the beginning or middle of the viewer’s video.
  • Bumper Ads – Bumpers are only six seconds long and play at the beginning of regular videos. Because they’re so short, they make great teasers for other media and bigger campaigns.

FAQ

Questions about Promo.com’s YouTube Video Creator?

What is a YouTube ad?

YouTube ads come in a number of different formats, but just like everything else on YouTube, most of them are video. Some YouTube ads are videos that show up in search results or in viewer’s “related videos” list. Others automatically play while viewers are watching other videos. The length and content of your ad will both depend on which of these formats you choose.

How do you create a YouTube ad?

Use the Promo.com YouTube Ad Maker and start by selecting your footage or uploading your own. Then it’s easy to customize and edit your YouTube ad to your liking. Craft your message and give your audience a strong call to action to lead them to your website or product page.

How do advertisements work on YouTube?

Advertisements can be displayed on YouTube videos in a number of ways. You can create and manage your YouTube ad through the Google Ads platform. Here, you will assign your ad to be a six second bumper ad that appears at the beginning of a video, an in-stream ad which can be skipped after 5 seconds, or any of the other ad formats listed below. When a viewer clicks on your ad, you as the advertiser pay (pay per click).

Is YouTube advertising effective?

YouTube advertising is an effective way to get your ads seen by a larger audience. Videos are being consumed by more and more people yearly, and YouTube is the most visited platform for viewing videos. This translates into more exposure for your videos and your brand, more engagement, and higher conversion rates, meaning more people will go to your site or product page as a result of your ads on YouTube.

Where can I use YouTube ads?

How do you add an intro to a YouTube video?

YouTube intros (as well as YouTube outros) can easily be added to your YouTube clips. Before uploading a video, make sure your channel customization features are enabled and upload the video you want to assign as your intro.

How long should my YouTube videos be?

YouTube limits your max video length to 15 minutes until you are a verified user, but even after that, we suggest keeping it short and sweet. YouTubers want something that keeps their attention, and your business’s YouTube ad is no different.

What if I need help with something?
