Captivate your audience with Video ads
Get people to take action
With Video ads, you can define what action you want people to take, such as:
- Visiting your website, so people can see your products and get to know your brand
- Watching more videos on your YouTube channel, so you can broaden your reach and build brand awareness
Reach your audience
Choose who you want to see your video ads based on location, interests, and more. Your video will appear before or next to related videos or in search results. Video ads can create a one-to-one communication with potential customers.
Only pay when people watch your ad
Our flexible pricing works with almost any budget. You only pay when someone chooses to watch at least 30 seconds, views the entire ad, or engages with your ad, like clicking on a call-to-action overlay, a card, or a companion banner.
