YouTube ads best practice

YouTube's advertising engine is very powerful and you can optimize to infinity. Of course, you don't have time for that, so basically the success of your ad depends on how it captures users. This means that your creative choices determine how successful your ads will be.

Data and YouTube advertising

As with any other form of advertising, it becomes a very expensive pleasure if you don't know who your ads will be exposed to. That's why you need to look at your target audience. This can be based on other ad activities, user surveys, your Google Analytics account, etc.

In addition, you should always consider your ad from your potential customers' perspective: what solution does your product or service offer them? What do they need and want? Remember their goals and values when creating your ads. This is about meeting the customer - not you.

Follow up on your YouTube ads

When you choose to advertise on YouTube, you should always keep a close eye on your ads. That way you can quickly change your set up if they are not performing optimally. If you just let an ineffective ad run, well, that can be an expensive experience.

Tip: To get off to a good start, it's a good idea to run two ads in parallel. That way, you can split test and compare this data to assess which ad performed best.
