Why YouTube Advertising Works

Advertising on YouTube lets you capture the attention of engaged consumers while they are watching video content. Users on YouTube are more engaged with watching videos due to the nature of the platform. The highly engaged users result in a lower cost per impression.

YouTube Campaign Solutions


Although these ads may be considered the most “annoying”, they are also extremely effective. In-Stream video ads play during YouTube videos as well as other places in Google’s display network, such as apps or games. These ads are usually around 30-seconds, but can be up to 3 minutes with unlimited ad copy possibilities. If someone clicks on an in-stream ad, they’re taken directly to the website or digital storefront.


To maximize the attention span of most audiences, non-skippable ads play for a brief moment before or after a featured video, and cannot be skipped (duh). Typically 15-20 seconds in length, they can be complemented with a 30-second extended version to play as an in-stream ad.

  • Effective for increasing brand exposure to specific target markets.
  • They’re paid for on a cost-per-mille (CPM) basis, giving you more control over your ad spend.
  • Everyday info makes for great content


These quick 6-second ads are also unskippable. They play before the main video and can be very effective in communicating a message in a very short period of time.
  • Because they’re short, bumper ads are ideal for targeting mobile users.
  • They’re also a great way to recycle longer content.
  • Content may contain blurbs about the day-to-day

Ways to Target Your Audience using YouTube


Age, gender identity, parental status, and household income. Detailed demographics can include marital status, home ownership, education, and parental status.

Affinity & Custom Audiences

If users have interacted with products or industries that are similar to yours, you can target those users as well.

Life Events

Purchasing habits and brand selections can be determined by big, life-altering events like marriage or having a baby. Life Events targeting will allow you to target by these big moments.

In-market Audiences

If you provide a solution or service that people are actively looking for, you can target them! Google click history, purchases, and search history will allow you to serve YouTube advertisements to those who are deemed “in-market” for your product or service.

Custom intent audiences

Most individuals do research before making a purchase. Search history terms can be targeted to those who have shown an intent to buy something.

Video remarketing

If people have watched videos on your channel or those related to yours, you can target them for a remarketing campaign.


Get specific! Select the websites, channels, apps, placements, etc. that your target audience is most likely to visit or interact with.

Topics or Device

Get specific to a device, then target your video ads to a range of topics, videos, channels, and sites.


Keywords are obvious. If someone searches “when to get a new car”, they’re probably looking for a new car. Target them if you sell new cars.
