What is YouTube advertising?

YouTube advertising refers to advertising campaigns exposed on the platform of YouTube, the popular video sharing service. These ads allow advertisers to reach millions of YouTube users and promote their products, services or content.

YouTube advertising presents a variety of models, including:

  1. In-stream ads: These ads appear before, during or after a video and users can skip them after a few seconds.
  2. TrueView ads: These ads are a form of in-stream ads where advertisers only pay when users watch the video for a certain amount of time or interact with the ad.
  3. Non-skippable ads: These ads cannot be skipped by users and appear before or after a video.
  4. Advertisements in the diagonal space: These ads appear in YouTube’s slide space, the area on the right side of the screen when you watch a video.

YouTube advertising allows advertisers to target their audience based on various criteria such as age, interests, geographic location and other demographics. This allows advertisers to reach the exact audience they want and optimise the performance of their ads. With the right strategy, YouTube advertising can lead to increased website traffic, increased sales and business growth.
