Great Example Of The Perfect YouTube Marketing Campaign

Great Example Of The Perfect YouTube Marketing Campaign

As many of you know…we love YouTube marketing campaigns. It’s very rare to find a creative YouTube campaign that deserves a post, but we found one.

So let’s walk through this YouTube marketing campaign and see what we can take and use for our own campaigns.

YouTube Marketing Campaign

1. Creating Your YouTube channel

The YouTube campaign was created for Tony Polecastro. Tony teaches guitar lessons. If you want to visit the actual channel you can click here.

Tony’s channel is set up exactly how a YouTube channel should be.

  • Good cover photo about his channel
  • Website link with a clever call to action
  • Introduction video about the channel
  • Great information and playlist for those who love guitar

Once your channel is set up correctly you now can move onto video production and creation.

2. Video Production

Tony’s videos are high quality with great sound. Sound quality is a big deal. Make sure people can hear what you are saying. Tony’s videos are not expensive to create. You can tell that he has spent some money on good lighting, sound, and a quality camera. I have written plenty of blogs on how to create a quality video you can read more about that here.

3. The YouTube Ad

This ad is extremely clever. It first calls out the audience he is looking for. [“Guitar Players”] If you are not a guitar player you will end up skipping the ad. That is a huge budget saver. After the audience qualification, he asks them a question to get them engaged. This all happens within the first 5 seconds of the video.

You will notice that Tony did not open up with a disclaimer or some weird introduction. He got to the point quickly. Watch the YouTube video below to get a good feel for what I am talking about.

Something new…

Tony gave his audience a choice.

Why would you do this?

“People change no faster than they make and keep commitments.”

If you want someone to buy your product or service the more you can get them to do, the more likely they are to buy.

If you want someone to buy your product or service you want them to make little commitments. The more you can get them to do, the more likely they are to buy.

Have you ever noticed when a great speaker is on stage he will ask questions and get the audience to start interacting with him? Whether it’s a simple hand raise or the nod of the head. The goal is to move them closer to buying.

It works; and Tony uses it in his video ads.

4. The Funnel

I have seen two of his video ads.

a. One of them drives them to this landing page where they make the decision.

Landing page with Questions

b. The video above just takes them directly to the YouTube video.

I would recommend driving your audience to a landing page or a webinar. That way, you can run a remarketing campaign to your website visitors on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.

5. YouTube Ad Targeting

Once you have the first 4 steps done, you are now ready to start running YouTube ads.

We would use in-stream ads and play the videos in front of other guitar videos. You will want to start there. You can expect to pay 10 to 20 cents per view for these types of ads. YouTube will charge you only if the audience watches past the 30 seconds.

I have a lot of YouTube ad tutorials. Here are some links

How to Market Your Product Or Service On YouTube

How to Market Your Product Or Service On YouTube

This is the 3 post in 3 days. I am on a roll. Today we are going to learn…

How to marketing your product or service on YouTube

I get calls all the time from people wanting to know how they can push out their product or service on YouTube. It’s not too complicated especially since you have this video.

Enjoy

1. Create a good product or service
2. Get a video
3. Run YouTube Ads
-Find videos related to your business
-Find your competitors
-Create ads

Here is the video transcript. Forgive the errors it’s done by a computer.

Hey this is Jace with Marketing Hy and today we are going to go over how to market your product or service on YouTube. Throughout the day I’ve gotten a few calls on people calling up. One of them’s an eCommerce product, another one is, well, eCommerce. I mean, it’s a health product. It’s sport cream. Another one called up, they run an insurance company, another one does a lending company, so I’ve been getting all these calls and the first thing they want to know is, “How to market my product or service on YouTube.” I’m going to go over that, so this video we will discuss your product, how to get it on YouTube, the different things you need to do, different things you can watch out for, so we will jump right in. I’m going to try to keep this short. We’ll see.

Number one, anytime anyone goes to market anything, you have to make sure that you have created a good product or service. You cannot market junk, it’s hard. Now, there might be a product or service that no one wants but a particular group of people in this world want, that’s fine. There’s a big difference between rare and a junk product. You just have to make sure your product is good. I get worried when people come to me and they say, “Hey, I have a new product. No one has ever done this” because immediately when I hear something like that I’m like, “Okay, so you have no competitors?” Usually if you have zero competitors in your market, it’s not a good sign. Just make sure you have a good product or a good service, and that is going to be the best step because I’ve seen a lot of companies where they actually have a bad service.

They go out there and they will spend all this money marketing, they start to grow while their service is terrible, and then the whole company collapse. Got it? Once you have that product or service, you need to make sure you get a good message and then get a good video behind it. The video, like I said on an earlier video this week, we discussed different things you can do with your videos or different ways or different companies you can use to actually create your videos. It doesn’t need to be expensive but you need to get a video. Now, what’s a good video? Something that identifies who you are, what you do, why it matters to them, and then tells them how they should take action.

Another formula we use over at Ydraw is a good header, something that grabs their attention, identify the problem, give them a solution and then do a strong call to action. You can do a video in many different ways but it needs to include those types of things. If you’re creating this video on your own, go read about how to create a good script, and there’s a lot of material out there and also we have a lot of material just on Ydraw.com. Also, MarketingHy.com, there’s a lot there, too. Got it? Third, run YouTube Ads. Let’s jump over into the YouTube campaign and I didn’t mean to click on that. Here’s your YouTube channel, and here is an AdWords account.

All of your marketing and stuff, you should be running through the AdWords platform. I don’t really like to go out to other platforms. Like, I’ve seen some other YouTube platforms that just aren’t that great. They’re just tying into the API. Okay, so jump over here and on the left hand side you’re going to see a video campaign. I just created this one, so you can see we’ve been running it for a few days and costs, we’ve spent about $70 on it. This is going after my competitors, so the nice thing is on video ads, you’re able to identify the very videos you want to go after. Let’s assume that you’re in the insurance business. Insurance. I had a guy call me on this today. First thing you do is identify videos that are in the insurance, and then you just click on them.

Speaker 2: So how often …
Jace Vernon: Okay, and you look for a little yellow tag.
Speaker 3: All right. We’re …
Jace Vernon: Sometimes there’s keywords, they have them, sometimes they don’t. I’ll show you. Oh, right there.

Jace Vernon: See how this thing went yellow? Well, there’s two ways. There’s an ad that’s playing in front of that. Obviously if there’s an ad there you know immediately that you can put your insurance video in front of this insurance video and piggyback off their ranking. You’ll see also that what YouTube does is they put your ad right here. “Visit advertiser site.” You not only have the video playing here, it’s popped over here. Right now what you do is take this URL down, bring up text, whatever you want, and you just keep it going. You just record, or you just take down the URL of the videos you can play in front of. That one, no. That one, no. I’m trying to find.

Speaker 5: Good morning, guys.
Jace Vernon: You’ll want to do a mixture of different keywords. Obviously I’m just going after a broad keyword, “insurance.”
Speaker 6: Let’s go to Kelly in Missouri. You are on [crosstalk 00:05:46].
Jace Vernon: What I’m looking for is a little tiny yellow tag. Especially if you find a direct competitor that’s allowing ads on their videos, it’s actually kind of funny. I’ve got a lot of leads from that.
Speaker 7:
Jace Vernon: Right there. There’s your next one. The psychology to selling life insurance. Great. There’s an ad, you can run an ad right there. This is IBM, and you’ll notice that these are not really relevant but yours is going to be relevant. You don’t get charged a view until somebody has watched past 30 seconds. If I skip this ad.
Speaker 7: [inaudible 00:06:25] aware of what’s happening right now? We’re facing [inaudible 00:06:27].
Jace Vernon: I skip it, they did not get charged. Got it? Their ad stays up here. That ad’s going to sit there throughout the videos, so I hope you can see the value. That’s one way. You can go through an identify the very videos you want to play on. You take that, come down here, and paste that URL, and just keep going. I like to do a mixture of 10 different keywords, go down a couple pages. Now, there’s an easier way to do this but sometimes it’s not always that great. Let’s go into this campaign, I’m going to show you. Under video targeting, you just go over here to placements. Here’s your options. You can target them by demographics, you can target them by interest, remarketing. Remarketing tags, I love those, placement.

I’m not running any placements here but you can just go here and pick your … Search for placement. Insurance, insurance. I’ll just match it. You have YouTube channels or YouTube videos and I like to add both. It says I’m missing something. Add manually, obviously the URLs that we have, I want to add manually. Search for insurance, and it’s going to give you all these channels. It’s also going to give you these videos. These are all videos on insurance, but here’s the problem. Oh, that’s actually a probably good one. Some of them do not allow ads. Even though YouTube is telling you you can market on them, that is not always the case. Well, more often than not it’s not the case, okay?

It goes back to you want to hand search to be safe, and then all you do is add them over and then you save that and it’ll put those placements there. Got it? That’s a simple way. Your other options are you have remarketing, obviously you can upload your own lists. You can see I just barely uploaded a LinkedIn list. You can do your whole contact list. Topics, if you want to add topics, Google gives you a lot of topics and then there’s something called “in market.” You have infinity audiences, that’s for bigger reach. If you want to do return on investment, well Google is keeping track of all your searches, so they know that someone’s looking for SEO and SEM services, so you can click here and you can go after those people that are looking for those services or have those interests.

Business, technology, we did say insurance, so let’s see if we can see find something on. You’ve got auto, mortgage, term, auto, health, home, life, travel. You can pick those and then save them, and then Google will go out there and find those people interested and show them your video. Got it? Great way to get some attention. Now, remember, your video needs to have a call to action at the end. You need to have it uploaded onto YouTube to be able to do things like this, but I hope you know it’s a great way to target your audience. You can go out there and target them by infinity audiences, you can target them by in market which I just told you what they were, you can target them by exact placements, and then also you can do keywords.

Keywords is not an exact science like it is on a normal search, but it is working. You just want to test it out. Go out there, test out your videos, and see which ones convert. Test out different call to actions, links, but don’t quit after your first try. Don’t go out there and say, “Okay, I tried it. Didn’t work.” I’ve been able to get 13 cent conversions from YouTube which is excellent, and when I say conversion, it’s not an actual purchase. It’s where they leave their email address or they give me a call, something like that. If you have questions, visit us over at MarketingHy.com. That’s Marketing, H-y.com. If you need a video, go to Ydraw.com. We’d be happy to help you, and that is it. See ya.

How To Run YouTube Ads In Front Of Your Competitors’ Videos

How To Run YouTube Ads In Front Of Your Competitors’ Videos

Have you ever wondered how you ran run YouTube ads in front of your competitors videos. We have created a simple guide to show you exactly how to set up a campaign. This is a great ways to capture views, traffic, and sales from your competitors.

Whenever I give a presentation, I will usually show people how they can capture views, leads, and traffic from their competitors videos. The audience loves to learn this simple technique so I am going to teach you how to create a YouTube campaign targeting your competitor’s videos.

Let’s get started With Our YouTube Ad Campaign
___________________

In order for you to set up a campaign you are going to need the following:

  • A video with a great headline, story and call to action.
  • Adwords account
  • YouTube channel

If you do not have the 3 things above, it’s going to be hard for you to run YouTube ads. If you need help or have questions on how to create the perfect video, Ydraw is the best solution.

We also have other tutorials where you can learn how to set up your YouTube channel. Just click here.

Campaign Settings

Setting up your Adwords campaign

Adwords is the platform we will be using to create your YouTube ads. You are going to want to create a new campaign.

Click on the Run Campaign button and scroll down to video. I like to name my new campaign “Competitors.” You can name it what you would like.

Leave the type to standard and change the video ad formats to “In-stream or video discovery” not bumper ads.

The average cost per view will be between 8 and 15 cents. Just depends on how aggressive you would like to be. We are going to set our budget to $10 per day. That will give us around 100 views.

The cool thing about YouTube video ads is they do not count a view until they have watched 30 seconds. If they skip the ad, you are not charged. Basically, you can get free branding if they skip the video.

Moving on…

Your Networks is going to be YouTube Videos. I do not like to use video partners. A good practice is to restrict Google as much as possible. They will blow your budget if you let them.

Pick your locations and language.

When you get to the Devices section you will want to decrease the spend on Mobile. You will see a blue link for “Advanced mobile and table options.” Click on it and decrease the mobile bid.

Why do you want to do this?

I have found that results are exponentially higher when you decrease the mobile bid. If you have a large budget or you are not hitting your daily spend, feel free to change it around.

Leave the rest of the settings and click save and continue.

Ad Group Settings

Setting up you Ad groups

Ad group name and format

Next we are going to set up your Ad Group. Give it a name and then pick the video you would like to use. This is why you need a YouTube channel with a nice video.

You can jump over to your YouTube channel and grab the URL of the video you would like to place in front of your competitors.

In-stream

We will be running In-stream ads so select in-stream and put in your Display URL and your Final URL. Leave the Companion Banner as is.

Bidding

I am going to leave the bidding up to you. For now I just put $0.06, but sometimes I will bid extremely high to make sure I show up.

Targeting

With targeting, you have 6 different options and combinations. Since we’re going to be running our ads in front of our competitors videos, we’re going to want to choose the “Placements.”

I personally like to adjust the demographics to match my target audience. You can exclude certain demographics or exclude certain demographics.

Targeting (Placements)

This is the part you have been waiting for. Click on placements and then click on the “Search for placements.” I used to add everything manually, but YouTube has become better at giving us all the placements.

A lot of the placements do not allow ads on their videos. You can tell by clicking on the video and see if a 30 second ad pops up or look for the little yellow line on the bar. Here’s a simple screen shot.

So just because you see them pop up when you are searching for placements, does not mean you are going to be able to run ad in front of their videos. This is where manually searching comes into place.

The key is to find your competitors videos that are allowing ads. If you just want to search manually, you can.

This is not a 2 minute task. You will want to take some time and find as many videos as possible.

When you are done, click save ad group.

Conclusion

You’re ready to roll

I hope this simple guide helped. It’s important that you keep an eye on your campaign for a couple of days. Once you start seeing results you can tweak the account accordingly.

If you are like us, you should get some extremely cheap leads, customers, and sales from running your YouTube videos in front of you competitors.

Watch the video and see exactly how it’s done.

Here is the simple video Transcript forgive the errors

Hey, what’s up everyone? Today we’re going to go over a unique video marketing strategy. You’re going to need a couple of things to get started: AdWords account, an Analytics account and a YouTube video. So, let’s get started.

First off, what you’re going to do you’re going to- you want to be over here in your Analytics account. Okay, so the whole strategy is we’re going to design a campaign that is going to work off of our AdWords; it’s going to use Analytics account, plus our YouTube channel. And the whole idea is we’re going to pull in people from our PPC campaign, okay, people who have clicked on our Ads, or who have looked at something from our ads. So, if they had clicked on our ad, obviously we want to target them with a remarketing campaign. So, we’re going to set up a campaign that goes exactly with the exact AdWords campaign, and I hope that makes sense. So basically- I’ll make sense as I walk you through this. So, basically what you’re going to need is an AdWords account, an Analytics account and a YouTube video. Got it?

Video-Strategy-for-a-Remarketing-Campaign

Simple-Video-Remarketing-Strategy

So, I’m on my Analytics account right now. I’m going to do this for our company just so you can see exactly how it works. I was going to do it for a local chiropractor, but I’m not sure if he wants his stuff showing on YouTube. So we’ll just do it for our.

So first thing you want to do is jump over into your Analytics account. Once you are there you’re going to want to build out an audience. So, go to Admin; most of the time you’re going to be here on Home. What you’re going to do is click on Admin. Go down to your audience definitions and audiences. And for this to work, you have to make sure you have your analytics and everything linked up. Make sure your AdWords account is linked up to your Analytics. Okay. So, I’m going to go All Website Data here. This is the destination account, which is the AdWords account and then I’m going to go create new. Then, jump over here to my traffic source and click on one of my campaigns. Okay. Remember this is a video marketing strategy that’s just going to go after people who get to my site or look at my ads from a video campaign. Now, I just set this up, so I hope I have enough people on it.

So, anyone who’s looking or gets to my site from my campaign that’s called YouTube video Ads, I am going to do that one. Okay. So, once again, Audience Builder. Go down to Traffic Source, and then you can pick a specific campaign that you have over on your AdWords account. So, if you jump on my AdWords account, here is a search campaign called YouTube video Ads. I’m going to target those guys specifically with this video. Okay. Audience name is YouTube video Ads, and this is very targeted. Got it? So, perfect. Now that audience is up. You can see who’s part of it the last seven days, membership duration- 30. It probably be smart to go over and also cookie that landing page; so if you’re driving that, with that specific campaign. So, if this AdWords campaign is driving them to a specific landing page it’ll be smart to also create an audience for that exact landing page. Okay, so you kind of hit them both.

Now, once we have the audience build, now it’s time to create the video campaign. So, you’re going to go over here to your AdWords account. Go down here to video. We’re just going to call this Video Marketing Strategy. So, probably I’ll have to go back and make some adjustments. Individual budget, so, we’re going to put $10. Actually, let’s say if you have a video marketing budget of $5; we’re going to put that right there.

Got it? I only want to go after the search. I don’t really like to do video partners on display. Most of my audience’s in United States and I’m going to actually start adding New Zealand. Now, you don’t really need to choose an audience if you don’t want to, because you’ve already defined the audience with your list. Okay, if you like, I just want to make sure that people from India and those places aren’t. I’m not buying ads from them. They’re just not my buyers. Okay, so reality is I don’t really need to do this with a remarketing campaign, but I’m going to anyway, just so you know. Okay.

Start delivery; I’m going to limit my impressions on this to five impressions, five views. Let’s go three. Okay. I like to rotate my ads evenly, especially if I have two ads, but it really doesn’t matter, because I’m only going to have one ad. I’m just letting you guys know when you create your own campaign to have that.

Okay. So, obviously they’re coming to my site for YouTube reasons. They’re looking to advertise on YouTube. Okay, but my keywords are all based on YouTube marketing, YouTube advertising. So, I got a video here that talks about running ads on your competitors’ videos. I’m going to put that in here. Okay. We’re going to do in stream. I’m going to take them back to my site. Video 1. We’re going to go $0.9 a view. I’m going to narrow that nine cents if you a min narrow that right there. Okay.

So, my audience, obviously any age, any gender, any interest, because I already have defined the audience that I want to go after. My remarketing is under AdWords Remarketing list. Anyone, right here, YouTube video ads; obviously I need to grow that. It is tracking them; I just have to get it a lot bigger. Done, and done.

Now, this is an in stream ad. It is not an in-display ad. I might want to go back and create an in display ad. So, I would just duplicate the same campaign and go run an in stream ad. Okay?

So, that’s it. Simple video marketing strategy that you guys can do. Let’s kind of go over it real quick again. First thing you’re going to do is jump onto your Google analytics. You’re going to define an audience. The audience I defined came from my AdWords account. So, video marketing strategy- nope. Video marketing- YouTube video ads. So, this is the campaign. I designed a specific audience based off of this campaign. So, anyone who comes to my website because of this campaign right here, I’m now going to remarket them and create another campaign, which is right here, Video Marketing Strategy Tutorial. Okay. This campaign is targeting these guys. Okay. A simple remarketing campaign and you create that like I showed you; going up here to campaigns, down video campaign. Make sure you have the YouTube video that you want that matches up with what that audience is looking for. Got it?

So, of you have any questions, let us know. You can always check out our other videos, subscribe to our channel if you like. We’re always putting out tutorial videos to do with video marketing. Okay. And, that is it. Enjoy!

Gmail Video Ad Tutorial. Here’s How To Create Them!

Gmail Video Ad Tutorial. Here’s How To Create Them!

Gmail Video Ads are here! Are you using them?

Before we jump into the Gmail video ad explanation and tutorial, I wanted to show all of you what I did this week. I dunked on Shaq.

Here is the proof.

It’s not everyday you get the chance to dunk on the big guy. I took it. 🙂

Now back to Gmail Video Ads.

Many of you know that I love Gmail ads. I have spent thousand of dollars testing them. So far, the ROI has been exceptional.

I highly recommend using Gmail Ads if you are not. You can check out a Gmail tutorial here to learn how to set up your first Gmail campaign.

Yesterday I was creating some ads and I found this, a video ad option.

Gmail-video-ad-options

This is perfect! You can deliver your full message right within gmail. The audience clicks on the play button and the video pops up.

A lot of times visitors do not like to leave their Gmail account. With a Gmail video ad, they do not have to. They watch your message and then decide if they are interested in your product or service.

Before we jump into the tutorial you need to make sure you have a couple of things in place.

  1. A great video.
  2. Your video has to be uploaded to YouTube.

Without those two step you do not even have the option to run video ads.

Here is how to create a Gmail Video Ad

1. Open up an Adwords account (If you would like $100 dollars in Google ads, let me know. I can send you a code created by my partner account. You do have to spend $25 to get the $100.)
2. Create a new display campaign
3. Create the actual Gmail ad
4. Choose the right audience
5. Let it run

I find it a lot easier to shoot a simple video. Watch the video and I will show you exactly how to set up the campaign.

Here is the transcript for the Video. Forgive the typos and spellings. A computer does this…

Jace Vernon: Good morning, everyone. It is Jace with Yinc Marketing and Ydraw. I am here to bring you a video on Gmail video ads. So, the other day I was on my Gmail and I saw a promotional ad, clicked on it and there popped up a video ad, where you just click, watch the video.

So, once I saw that, I love video ads. I love the whole thing about Gmail ads. It’s kind of the perfect mix for me. I jumped over there, started creating, and I wanted to get you guys out a video to show you guys how to create Gmail video ads. That way, come Tuesday (it is the 4th of July today, so Happy 4th of July for those in the US)…

So, I wanted to get this out today, so tomorrow – come Tuesday – you guys are able to jump on it and start implementing it. Got it?

So, we’re going to jump right in. I’m going to try to do this here within five minutes. So, first thing you’re going to do is create a new campaign. Go down to Display. This is going to be our Gmail video ad. Got it? I’m not going to worry about a lot of the copywriting. Not the copywriting like the copy. Normally I’d spend some time creating the best copy I could, but I’m not doing that right now, because I want to get this out. That’s something that you need to study.

So, enhanced CPC – you can leave that. It’s not; there’s no location, there’s no call ad. You don’t need to worry about that. I do like to go down here and change this to rotate indefinitely, because I like to do my own AB testing first. I’ll upload multiple ads. I will see which one’s getting a higher conversion, higher click-through rates, then I will pick. I don’t allow Google to do it, because I just don’t feel like they’re doing a good job. Two viewable impressions – you can do as many as you want there. I like to do 2, and then I hit Save.

Then it jumps over to this portion. I like to click this off – targeting options like Adwords automatically finding new customers. No, I don’t want to do that due to the fact that I’m going to be choosing my keywords. I just don’t like Google trying to go out there, because I felt like I wasted my budget sometimes. You may feel differently on that, but that’s just what I found. Enhanced CPC bid – we’re going to go 10 cents per click.

We need to now do our targeting method. We’re not going to worry about that right now. So, I’ll just go Save. Great. I skipped that. Okay.

So, it now brings you to here. You are now ready to do a few things. First, thing you need to do is go in and add your actual targeting. You have to go to placements, so you click over on the display network tab; then you click on displacements just to see that there’s nothing there and then we are going to add in… Just teasing. Just teasing, just teasing. We have to go add our ad first. So, first thing we’re going to do is create an ad group. We were just here. I skipped it and I shouldn’t have. So, we’re going to do targeting method. You have to go to placement.

Okay. Use a different targeting method. Down here multiple placements, mail.google.com. Now, what I did I just opened up that now allows us to be on the Gmail network. Okay, we’re going to skip ad creation. We do not want the ad creation right this second, because we’re going to go in here, and go to ad gallery and we’re going to do an actual Gmail ad. Okay, so you’re not going to do a text ad. You’re going to do an actual Gmail ad. Now you have the Gmail image template, you have the Gmail single promotion template, Gmail multiple template and Gmail catalogue. Okay, right here this one Gmail single promotion template, this is where you’re going to find the option to be able to put it in your video. So, we’re going to go to Ydraw. Image – make sure you put in a good image here. I’m going to throw in, like something like this is usually pretty good just because it grabs your attention.

Now, let me change that. So, I don’t want to spend a lot of time doing this. You need to actually spend some time on creating these headlines. The whole idea is to get a high click through rate. So, do some testing, create these headlines, use your search, search campaigns to find out what’s really converting for you. And use kind of that same wording. So, I’m just going to throw in some stuff.

Okay. Now, here is where you are going to create your video ad. This gives you the option. You’re going to select the video. So click on this one over here, type it in – it will find it, and then you are able to pop in your video. Now, the nice thing about this is when they’re in your Gmail; a lot of people when they’re in Gmail, they don’t want to go outside of Gmail. Okay. So, with a video ad you’re able to deliver your message right there within Gmail.

So, if they’re interested in your product, they click on this watch your video, and then they’ll decide if they want to leave and go out to your website. So, it’s a good thing to weed out customers or interested customers, because they’re not going to go to your website if they watch your video. Another thing you want to be careful with is if your video is terrible or it’s not good at conversions, or it’s boring, anything, that actually can look bad on your business. So, make sure you have a pretty good video there. Got it?

Headline… Okay.

So, there is our ad. Like I said, spend some time creating it and you can see this is what pops up when you click on the promotions tab, so let me… I’m over on my Gmail. I just clicked over so here is the copy. You can click on this, and this is the actual ad within Gmail. Now, how does Gmail decide what to stick there, so what ad pops up here? They are reading your emails. They know what your likes, interest and all that are, so they will try to match up an ad according to your likes, and interests and topics, and everything. Got it?

So, that’s where your ad is going to show up. So, they’ll click on it and then right there you’ll going to have a play button. They can watch your video and it just opens up right here on their Gmail. Got it?

So, once you’ve gone that far, you then click Save and your video ad is running right now. It is running on the whole entire network. Okay. You are not targeted, so don’t leave it like that; you’re going to lose a lot of money. You need to now go in there and put in your display keywords. So, whether you’re in the video business or orthodontist, I mean whatever you’re doing, you need to put in your display keywords.

Now, I recommend choosing one target group and then doing another ad. So, don’t do a bunch of different topics mixed with keywords, mixed with remarketing, any of those types of things. Yet something I like about Gmail is you’re able to go in here and click on interest and remarketing, you can upload custom email list. So, like I have a list of 20,000 sitting in Infusionsoft. So, I can go grab that list, upload it in here, and do Gmail ads to my list. And then also Google will create a similar audience according to my list. I can market to them. So there you have a lot of options within this display network. Got it?
And I have some other video you can go watch- How to Actually Target Gmail Ads.

Now, last thing. I want to give you guys a little secret that I have been testing. Let me bring up an ad. I saw somebody do this and just caught my eye. Here is a Gmail ad I’m running; I’m just bringing it over to you right now, from my own business. So, I wrote up a simple page document, a Word Document. Then, I screenshot this simple image. So, it’s almost like I get all this wording. Well, you don’t have the ability to put all this wording in when you’re doing Gmail ads. So, this is kind of like a short form sales letter and you can go over here to the display network, right here where you do ads. You can upload a Gmail ad and do it with the image. So right here is the Gmail image template. What I do; sorry, this is kind of off. I just want to show you guys real quickly how to do this. same thing, you’re going to get really good headline subject descriptions, but look, now I have an image in there that they can read and they can click here. so, it’s a way to get a lot more wording, but that is what the ad looks like.

Got it? So, good luck. If you have any questions left, let me know. You can email me jace@marketinghy.com. Go check out our other videos. You can go to our website marketinghy.com, or if you’re needing a video, you can always go to ydraw.com. Questions, like I said, I’m available.

Good luck. Get out there. Build your Gmail video ads and we can chat later. See you.

YouTube Launches A New Video App To Help Small Businesses Create Videos

YouTube Launches A New Video App To Help Small Businesses Create Videos

YouTube is finally creating resources for Small Businesses so that they can shoot video and then advertise them. Introducing the YouTube Director App.

That world of YouTube advertising just got better.

YouTube wants to turn video ads on its platform into a DIY possibility for small – and medium – sized businesses. This is a good thing. I just can’t wait for the day when they allow video ads on the main search engine. This is a prediction of mine and let’s cross our fingers that it comes true.

Just Today, Google is launching three ways for SMBs to create video ads for YouTube that are—at least for the most part—free. With a new app called YouTube Director, the video juggernaut is helping businesses with little or no marketing budget create commercials on their own. Check out their video here.

What does this mean for us?

A lot…

I have noticed YouTube and Google putting a lot of attention on Video Advertising. Running YouTube video ads is still a mystery and take a lot of work to get the right ROI. We love YouTube ads, but have seen too many small businesses blow their budget because of lack of transparency on YouTube’s side.

The advertising platform is not as friendly as the adwords search platform. I will talk more about this later.

On to the app.

Well if you have an apple device, don’t ask me why they didn’t do it for android first, you can download the YouTube director app and start to shoot video.

The app includes a number of templates, music and editing tools and is free to use.

Here is an example of a video shot with the new YouTube Director App. This is a simple video but it is very effective.

According to Diya Jolly, Google’s director of product management, the biggest struggle smaller businesses face on YouTube is the lack of quality of their videos.

“The reason we did this is because we believe, obviously, that video is becoming a more and more important medium on the internet,” Jolly said in an interview. “And today what we see is we have a lot of big brands being able to advertise on video because they have the resources for a video campaign, and while we have SMBs, we see that the quality of the video isn’t as high.”

Here is some simple advice on using the YouTube Director App.

  1. Create a script before you start to shoot.
  2. Map out your ideas
  3. Practice in front of the camera
  4. Smile…You may feel a little cheesy but smiling goes a long way

I am serious about the smiling thing.

Over the coming weeks I am going to shoot a couple of videos using the YouTube Director App. I will then post those videos and teach you all how to run YouTube ads the right way.
