Types of Video Advertising

  • Before videos
 Your video ad appears before, after, or in the middle of a YouTube video. Ads are skippable, and your client will only be charged if users choose to watch 30 seconds of the ad, or the whole ad if it’s less than 30 seconds long.
  • Next to videos
 Your video ad is displayed next to another YouTube video on the YouTube watch page or on the Google Display Network. Your client will only be charged when a user chooses to watch the ad.
  • In search results
 Your client’s video ad shows up on YouTube’s search results page when users search for related topics. Payment is on a cost-per-view basis so your client won’t pay if users don’t watch.
