Why you should be advertising on YouTube

Older generations often don’t give much thought to YouTube. They know it exists, but they often don’t know how popular it is.  For example, not only does data suggest that this wildly popular social channel gets more than 2.6 billion (yes, billion) logins each month, more than 80% of social media users aged 18-25 use it on a regular basis.

You may also be surprised to learn that 63% of global consumers use it (per Statista), and after Google, it’s the second most popular search engine on the planet.

Suffice to say- if you’re not advertising on YouTube, you should absolutely give it some thought.  Remember- people watch roughly one billion hours-worth of videos on the platform each and every day – and that number is only growing.

Just because you’re not familiar with YouTube, that’s not to say it should be ignored

Similar to advertising on platforms such as Instagram and Facebook, YouTube ads are measurable and scalable.  If you’re wondering what that means in plain English, we’ll break it down for you.

First, you’ll be able to measure and track various campaigns. Not only will you know how many users viewed your ads, you’ll know how many of them clicked through to your website. From there, you’ll also have access to metrics that tell you the percentage of users that clicked through and converted into customers.

If a particular ad is doing well, you can invest more in it. Or, on the other hand, if a campaign isn’t doing as well as you’d hoped, you can scale back, re-tool it, and try again.
