Choose an ad format

You can useYouTubeThe ad format depends on your campaign goals and the duration of your video ads. The following is an introduction to the three most commonly used formats.

1 TrueViewAdvertising

TrueView Video ads allow YouTube Viewers choose whether to watch video ads and when they want to watch them.TrueView Ads (formats) can be divided into two types:

Interstifated ads in YouTube Video sonbefores, during, or after playback, and can also be displayed on video partner sites and apps. This type of ad playback 5 After a second, viewers can choose to skip. This type of ad is intended for people who watch videos. Only watch videos by users30Seconds (or less than full viewing time30seconds of video) before you have to pay for advertising.


Frequently discovered where ads appear where users find content, such as YouTube In search results, next to related videos, and mobile YouTube Home. Such ads are charged when a user generates a click.

TrueViewAnother hidden advantage of advertising is social proof. It means whether or not the user skips the ad,YouTubewill count (and in yourYouTubePublicly displayed on the channel) all video views.


2 Non-skippable interstitial ads

Non-skippable interstitial ads are only available for ads with campaign type "Brand Awareness and Reach" for less than 15 seconds.As with TrueView ads, non-skippable ads run before, in, or after video content.The benefit of this type of ad is that you can make sure that viewers can see your entire footage, which translates into higher ad views metrics.

Because users are forced to watch your ads, their participation is less than choosing to watch5The user who watched the skipable ad after a second is so high.

This type of advertising is billed in such a wayCPM

Ad sequences enable you to divide your campaign into steps. Once you've set up your sequence, determine which ads to show to your users and in what order. It means that when a user sees the first ad in your order,YouTubeThe next ad will be served first, and then the next one will be served until all the ads appear. As mentioned above will guide advertising andTure ViewAds combine to do ad sequences, you can see ads as a trailer,Ture ViewAds show more detail.

Set budgets, delivery cycles, and bid methods

After you select the ad format, enter the name of your campaign, set your campaign budget, and then select the start and end dates.

There are two ways to bid:

True ViewAds use maximum per-view cost, and tellYouTubeYou want to pay the maximum price for each viewing of your ad. For discovery ads, it determines the maximum amount you are willing to pay for a click on an ad.

Target per thousand viewing fee, i.e.CPMis the average of what you are willing to pay for every thousand conversions.

There are three options to choose from: network, language, region,

The next step is to choose the type of ad resource, just as the movie will scale the rating,YouTubeThe video on the same scale rating, advertising resource types have the following three choices, generally speaking, the normal brand is to choose standard advertising resources, the scale is equivalent to the film“PG”, i.e. underage viewers must be accompanied by a parent.

At the same time,YouTubeIt also supports the exclusion of certain types or labels of video, but each time you add an exclusion, your advertising costs may increase, officials also said that this feature will be removed soon, students can not choose if not necessary.


Another hidden option after excluding the type is the selection of the device, frequency, and delivery time, which are the other settings below the figure.

First contactYouTubeAds may be ignored by classmates, but a very important setting is on hand here! That's the frequency set.

The frequency cap is important, which determines whether the ad will drain the user's attention, withFacebookDifferentYouTubeAdvertising leaves this option to advertisers, offering both display frequencies and viewing frequencies in two ways for advertisers to set themselves, both of which can be chosen at the same time.



Target your audience
