How does google video ads work?
Google created several different video advertising options on youtube. Google allows you to run Treeview in streams ads, TreeView discovery ads, bumper ads and many more.
Now take a look at how each video ad type works.
TreeView in streams ads
When youtube users play a video, a skippable ad comes up before the video. We call it TreeView in-streams ads.
In most cases, viewers have to watch the 5-second video and then youtube allows you to give options to skip the video.
The great things about Treeview in-stream ad is the AdWords gives you so many data such as click-through rate, watch time, bounce rate and many more.
If you are smart about your video creation process, you can actually use this data to optimize your video for high performance. If people bounce back right at the 5-second mark but very little loss of entire video, you need to check your hook (first 5-second video).
TreeView video discovery ads
TreeView video discovery ads are not as popular as instream ads, but they are pretty common.
When you are searching on youtube, you most probably find discovery ads at the top of the search results. You can also find TreeView video discovery ads in the right-hand video sidebar.
Video discovery ads are helpful when you are trying to promote a video that longer than 15-20 seconds.
If they click on your ads, they much more likely to finish your video.
Bumper ads are short, no longer than 6 seconds, unskippable that primarily use to build brand awareness.
I was just surfing youtube for an hour and can’t find any Bumper ads. So it’s not commonly used video ads.
However, Bumper add can be a great way to build and reinforce brand awareness.
Bumper ads are short. So you can't share messages or promote products at this given time. But if you have audiences that always support you, stay in front of your brand, bumper ads can be your best options.
