An Introduction to Youtube Marketing
Youtube has really grown as a social networking platform in the past decade. Considered to be a top tier form of social media alongside giants like Twitter and Facebook, Youtube revolutionises ads with video marketing. With a wide reach of over 30 million visitors every day worldwide, it provides a great opportunity for your brand to engage its target audience successfully. Consumers browse Youtube on a daily basis, as it is accessible on their mobile phones, making it portable and convenient to access at any time, allowing for a much wider reach than good old fashioned TV which is rooted to one spot. Online video advertising is becoming more popular and would be a great addition to your digital marketing strategy. There are many successful video ads that have helped catapult brands to success. With Youtube marketing, you have the ability to target a specific audience to ensure the best penetration, allowing you to choose between demographic, topics of interest or even based on what videos people are actually watching.
Types of Ads
There are several types of ways that your ad can appear on Youtube. Being aware of the different types of Youtube ads will help inform your decision on which type will have the most impact and widest reach. Let’s have a look at the Youtube ads list that are currently in operation.
This type of ad plays right before a video for 5 seconds before the user is allowed to skip it so it’s important to make those 5 seconds count. This type of ad is arguably the best way to increase brand engagement.
This ad appears while the video is playing at the top of the user’s recommendation list. It is able to attract the user’s attention while also being non-intrusive.
While short at a meagre 6 seconds, these non-skippable ads can really pack a punch if done right. Their short length makes them ideal for mobile viewing.
This type of ad is placed on the Youtube homepage for 24 hours, ensuring the highest reach and awareness of your brand as everyone who visits the site for that day will be exposed to it.

From the first meeting I had with the team at Dilate I was impressed by their professionalism and how personable all the staff were. I worked closely with them for about 4/5 months to build an innovative website that meet all my expectations. The user-friendliness for the customers has seen a decrease in phone bookings [compared to my previous dinosaur website] and the functionality on the backend has reduce my workload tenfold! I finally feel our website reflects my business. I would HIGHLY recommend Dilate Digital to anyone! Huge thanks to Bodie, Trav, Yi-Main and Bipu for everything!01/03/2019Barista School Perth
