The most challenging format

1. Bumper Ads

Bumper ads are six-second non-skippable in-stream ads that provide reach, frequency, and brand awareness. They are the building blocks for any successful ad campaign on YouTube and complement the TrueView in-Stream ads. The challenge is to put the main idea and the unique selling proposition in 6 sec. They are also the best optimized for mobile devices and are the most clickable video ad formats.

Duration: 6 sec

Placement: at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of another YouTube video; on websites and in applications of Google Video Partners

Bidding approach: cost-per-thousand impressions (CPM)

Marketing objective: Awareness

Advantages: 25% to 40% cheaper than TrueView in-Stream with click-per-view (CPV), enable you to reach more users than with any other YouTube format.

CREATIVITY IS THE KEY

2. TrueView
In-Stream

Skippable in 5 sec

Placement:

in-stream, before, during or after other videos, and in Google Video Partners.

Duration:

In 2017 YouTube offered non-skippable 30-second ads, and as it turned out they were not so efficient and viewers liked them the least. When viewers are forced to watch longer ads, they tend to get annoyed and that can be damaging for brands. For the reason, we recommend using the maximum length of the video as 30 seconds.

For Reach

An Ad format aimed to reach as much audience as possible by showing ads. The measurement is just impressions, so it is considered that ads reach results even if a user skips it. 

Challenge: to put the main idea of the video within the first 5-12 sec

KPI: cost-per-thousand impressions (CPM)

Marketing objective: Awareness

Advantages: the cheapest one among all TrueView formats

For Views

An Ad format counting a view (if a video is longer than 11 seconds). Payment for displaying ads is charged only if the user has watched 30 seconds of the ad (or the entire video if it is shorter) or interacted with the ad (clicks on a banner or call-to-action overlay, downloads of a mobile app).

Challenge: to motivate users to interact with the video.

KPI: cost-per-view (CPV) or Maximize lift

Marketing objective: Consideration

For Action

An Ad aimed at boosting website actions. The ad includes the companion, customized call-to-action overlay (CTA), and end screen.

Challenge: to motivate users to make an action and visit an advertiser’s website

KPI: target cost-per-action (tCPA) or Maximize conversions

Marketing objective: Action

Advantages: the most efficient, payment for result
