5 BENEFITS OF YOUTUBE ADVERTISING FOR SMALL BUSINESSES.
Big Brain Creation is a Powerful YouTube Advertising Agency. The benefits of advertising on YouTube far outweigh any reservations you may have about incorporating video ads into your marketing strategy. To truly maximize these benefits it is important you take the time to invest in creating a video ad that is creative and personal. Make a video that will resonate with your target audience and will motivate them to share it with others. When you go on YouTube, how long do you watch videos for? If you had to make a guess, what would you say?
You might be surprised to learn that the average user spends 40 minutes per session on YouTube.
Within this 40 minute timespan, the user will be exposed multiple YouTube advertisements—which is where your small business should be. More and more people are turning to the Internet for their news and television programming. Instead of running a commercial on more traditional (radio, television, or print) channels of advertising, running an ad on YouTube allows you to connect with potential customers through a more targeted approach.
Benefits of Advertising on YouTube
YouTube has 1.3 billion users—almost one-third of all people on the Internet—and users watch almost five billion videos daily. These numbers are only expected to keep increasing year over year. Because of this, YouTube provides a great opportunity for your message to reach millions of people that all have the potential of becoming prospective customers.
With YouTube ads, there are many targeting options for you to choose from. These include:
- Topic – the subject of the YouTube video content
- Demographics – age and gender
- Keywords – specific keywords relevant to ad
- Placements – specific YouTube pages relevant to ad
- Category – user interest
In comparison to other social media channels, YouTube’s users tend to spend more time on the platform. This is great for small business looking to drive more attention to their ads. On mobile specifically, YouTube reports the average session time is more than 40 minutes.
Wondering how much running a YouTube ad is going to cost? With YouTube advertising you pay per video view. So how much does advertising on YouTube cost? A typical video ad runs between $0.10 and $0.30 per view, depending on your video quality, your targeting, and your overall goal.
When watching a YouTube video have you ever seen that button that says “Skip Ad”? If so, you might be worried that you’re going to pay for a view when the user didn’t actually see your entire ad. But that’s not the case—YouTube doesn’t charge an advertiser for the first five seconds. Viewers have the option to watch an ad or else the placement is free.
Advertising on YouTube is more measurable than television advertising. How? You can track the video’s success digitally by utilizing clicks and you can ask your customer service representatives to ask where the consumer heard of your product or service. YouTube allows you to see when someone dropped off from watching your video as well as when people watched the video more often through YouTube’s Analytics.
