Using Promoted YouTube Videos: Best Practices

Here are a few rules of thumb I’d recommend so that you don’t waste your money!

1. Make sure that you already have several good and engaging videos uploaded to your YouTube channel.

2. Choose a relevant and eye grabbing thumbnail for the video
Similar to Google ads, Promoted Videos are managed through AdWords and follow a similar format to paid search. So ensure that the ad-copy related to our video. It will help attract the right audience. Words and concepts related to your video(s) should be used in the ad. The words “official” or “original” in a headline tend to increase views.

3. Keywords must relate to the video you are promoting
YouTube viewers are mainly looking just for video content. So search patterns are different to “normal Google search”. So, re-using your other adwords campaigns on normal search won’t give you the desired results. Use the YouTube Keyword research tool

4. Remember to add a video overlay
With promoted videos you can add an advertisement, as an video overlay that appears at the bottom of your video while it plays. The overlay allows you to link from your YouTube video to an external site. This is a great way to drive viewers to your blog or website or sales page. This tends to increase conversion rates.
