How To Add Individual YouTube Videos As Placements For Video Ads

Hey everyone,

 

I was under the impression you can target individual videos as placements for image ads. To do so is there anything you have to do besides just targeting the youtube watch url

 

eg. www.youtube.com/watch=example

 

Or let me know if this is not the case! Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You can certainly target individual videos manually.  However, there are a few things to understand.

 

1) The video must be setup to serve ads by the channel owner. 

2) Videos with high view counts accrued from the past don't necessarily receive a high volume of views presently.

3) If you're trying to sponsor videos related to specific content, try browsing the topic list to see if anything there matches what you are looking for.

Thanks David. The way to do so is by adding them as a placement, correct?

@Robert O That's correct! You can add the video as a managed placement.

Another thing to keep in mind is to make it as easy as possible for your audience to take the action you want them to take. You can add links to the video like a subscribe button for example if you want to build followers on your YouTube channel.
