How does it work?
Video ad campaign gives you the ears and focus of your ideal audience by distributing your brand or product video across YouTube homepage, videos, channel pages, search results, and millions of partners sites and apps.
Under video and brand consideration, Google gives you two major subtypes to fit your video intent and bring the most performance. These subtypes include:
- Influence consideration
- Ad sequence
This subtype is focused on stealing your potential consumer’s attention for a moment to share captivating details about your product or brand through skippable ads. It’s one of the best subtypes to explore when meeting your audience for the first time.
As a newly launched brand or product, you might want to get as much awareness and clicks as possible out of your ad. To ensure this, influence consideration uses cost per view (CPV) bidding strategy. This compels Google’s algorithm to drive the most views and interaction possible on your chosen CPV.
Ad sequence is for businesses with multiple creative assets (videos) to share. This subtype allows you to engage viewers with different video ad formats — skippable, non-skippable, and bumper ads— making it a great option to connect with your target audience all through their consumer journey.
Under this subtype, you can choose what bidding strategy brings the most value to your conversion goals. Businesses and advertisers can choose either the maximise cost per view (CPM) or target cost per thousand viewable impressions (CPM)
