Why advertise on YouTube?
Advertising on YouTube increases the visibility of your brand. YouTube is a particularly good branding channel for the increase of brand engagement or marketing of a brand. In addition, you can reach a group of viewers continuously with new video ads (video remarketing). This allows you to tell a story.
One of the most frequently watched and used video ads is the pre-roll, which is shown before other videos on YouTube. Users can skip it after 5 seconds, so the choice to watch the entire video ad lies with the end user. Costs are only incurred if someone watched the ad to the end or clicks it. If a user skips the ad before 30 seconds have passed (or the end is reached), it costs nothing.
Because ‘YouTubers’ can choose whether they want to finish watching an ad, increasingly creative ad content is being created. Engaging with the target audience and making the ad more specific and attractive is important when appealing to the target audience. Good ad content is, therefore, essential for a successful campaign.
