The Changing Landscape of Video Advertising

YouTube advertisers only pay when someone doesn’t skip their ad.

YouTube advertisers only pay when someone doesn’t skip their ad.In the YouTube seminar, Reider explained how YouTube ads provide greater bang for buck than TV ads. Reider showed how the #1 show on television in the 1980s and 1990s had tens of millions of viewers while the #1 show on television today attracts approximately 1/10th of that.

While a 30 or 60 second primetime TV spot is costly, YouTube ads offer higher viewership than TV at lower costs. TrueView YouTube ads, the ads that play before a video starts, cost nothing to the advertiser if the ad is skipped. This means that you’re only paying to show your ad to people who are interested in your offer.

Additionally, while it can be difficult to target niche markets on TV, YouTube allows you to put your ad in front of people who have an interest in your products or services.”

YouTube: More Than Cats

Many assume that YouTube is mostly for funny, short clips. As McMaster explained, the YouTube audience has a lot more diverse interests than looking for laughs.

YouTubers Are Looking For What You’re Selling

64% of YouTubers use the video search engine to find products and another 42% use video for pre-purchase research. This means that people’s purchases are influenced by what they see on YouTube. This is further supported by the fact that video is the most popular form of content and YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world.
