What Is A Video Advert?
A Video Advert is a video that’s designed to promote your products or services beyond your existing customer base. It can help capture the attention of your would-be customers, and sell them on the values of your product offering. Of course, video advertising has been around for years in one form or another – dating way back to the early days of grainy, black-and-white TV ads – but the power of digital technology has taken things to the next level. A video advert can be a crucial tool in helping you reach new customers, with highly sophisticated targeting options available on ad platforms around the web to reach the exact right person at the exact right time.
It was such a pleasure to work with Wyzowl! During every stage of the project, they delivered amazing work that required very little revisions – saving time for the both of us! Thank you for making my life a little easier. I am so happy with my custom video and would most definitely recommend Wyzowl!

Benefits of a Video Advert
It's no secret that video adverts compel viewers to take action and visit your website to find out more about your brand, but there are tons more benefits to enjoy!
1. Advanced Targeting
Arguably, the number one benefit of video adverts is that you get to choose your audience. YouTube offers the ability to target by gender, location, age – pretty much everything!
2. Guaranteed Engagement
The best thing about creating a target audience is that you give your video a better chance of being enjoyed by viewers. With YouTube's “no skip” function, you can further guarantee engagement.
3. Pay Per Click
An obvious downside of video ads is that you're paying to promote them. However, most hosting sites work on a pay per click basis, meaning you only pay when someone is interested in your video, brand or product.
4. YouTube Presence
You probably already know that YouTube is popular, but did you know that over half of peoples' time spent watching video online is spent on that single website? This is why it is super-important to have a presence on YouTube, and video ads can give you that.
5. Instant Response
When people click your video ad, they're taken directly to the landing page you want to send them to. That means that your video receives in an instant response, making conversion more likely.
6. More Memorable
Video ads, by nature, are required to be short and snappy. You need to grab your viewers' attention in those first 5 seconds, and this is more likely to create a memorable video.
We needed to be able to convey what makes our company special and different in a short video format, we shopped the market and found Wyzowl to be competitively priced...We are super pumped with the final video and have just signed up to have the Wyzowl production team make a few more videos!

How To Use A Video Advert
Once you've created your video advert there are many ways you can use it to reach your target audience and future customers.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock since 2004, you’ll probably be well aware that YouTube is the web’s foremost destination for video content! A billion hours of video content are watched on YouTube every single day, across a variety of ages, demographics and geo-locations.
Whatever else your customer does, it’s almost certain that they watch videos on YouTube at some point, too.
This creates a compelling opportunity for video marketers - not only to achieve organic visibility of your video content, but also to leverage YouTube’s powerful advertising solutions to reach a highly targeted audience with relevant content.
The numbers suggest that YouTube ads hold attention, and inspire action; a study commissioned by Google found that 62% of ad time on YouTube receives the viewer's attention, compared to 45% of TV ad time; while viewers who watch ads are 10 times more likely to engage with the brand on YouTube - for example, by subscribing to the brand’s channel, watching more of the brand’s videos, or sharing their videos. It might start with an ad, but it can lead to a much longer-term relationship.
YouTube offers a variety of different ad types, including 6-second ‘bumper ads,’ non-skippable 15-20 second in-stream ads, and skippable ads which can be pretty much any length. We can create video content to fit any of these specifications!
There’s no doubt that the way we watch television has changed, largely due to on-demand streaming services and digital video. However, while there seems to be an overriding consensus that these changes have made TV advertising less impactful, it still has its place. Indeed, it’s been predicted that, by 2020, global expenditure on TV advertising will actually have risen by nearly 55% since 2010.
We’ve created a number of animated videos that have been featured as TV adverts, whether it’s small, local businesses looking to promote their services via local cable channels in their community; or large, well-known enterprises advertising their products nationwide.
Most people associate TV ads with a wide audience, and that’s certainly justified; TV ad campaigns can be a good way to reach a large number of people, particularly at certain times of the day. However, there’s an element of targeting in play here, albeit far less granular than some of the options enjoyed by online marketers. If you know that your target demographic is particularly likely to watch a particular TV channel, or watch at a certain time of day, then you can specifically run your ad on that channel, at that time.
One piece of advice we’d share is to be aware that the way people watch TV ads has changed. We live in the era of the second screen, with a growing number of people using ad breaks to send texts, browse the web or read emails. This makes it important to concentrate not just on the visuals of your ad, but particularly the audio.
Social Media has been one of the unstoppable marketing success stories of our generation. Adoption and usage continue to grow. In 2010, there were under a billion social media users, and experts predict that, by 2021, there’ll be more than 3 billion.
Social is powerful because we also use it for a variety of purposes. Yes, we use it to keep up with our friends, document our daily lives and keep up with what’s happening in the world. But we also use it to connect with brands; discover new products; and even make purchase decisions.
There’s an inextricable link between social and video marketing. Around 100 million hours of video are watched every day on Facebook - while a Tweet containing video is 6x more likely to be retweeted than one with photos alone.
Combining the phenomenal, growing audience of social media, with video - a content type proven to engage and hold viewer attention - and then throw in the advanced targeting options offered by these platforms’ advertising tools, and you can see that this is a huge opportunity. You can get your video ad right in front of the ideal viewer, and tell them exactly how your product works - in a format they love.
Whenever you’re looking to connect and network with new potential customers, physical events - exhibitions, conferences and trade shows - are a great tool to consider. It’s been reported that an average of 81% of trade show attendees have buying authority - and 92% of them say their main reason for attending is to see new products being featured. This is an audience that’s primed to discover your product!
Equally, trade shows are busy events, and attendees’ time is often at a premium. If you’re tied up talking to someone, there’s every chance that valuable potential leads will simply filter past your stand without finding out who you are and what you do.
A video ad, displayed on a TV on your exhibition stand, is a great way to plug this potential gap and capture the interest of passing attendees. You can sum up the key benefits and feature of your product and show them exactly how it works, without them needing to speak to anyone.
Make sure to have some sort of mechanism to collect data - ideally a box for your attendees to drop their business cards into - and follow up with them after the event. This gives you a great starting point when you do reach out and call them.
Using a video ad as part of your email nurture sequence is a great way to reframe the conversation!
One of the biggest inbound marketing challenges you’ll face is the way in which you move your prospects from ‘leads’ to ‘customers.’
When a prospect downloads a piece of content or signs up to receive your email updates, they’re most likely doing it because they’re interested in the subject of that content, or simply receiving news about your business.
The process of selling your products or services to these people requires a subtle shift in conversation from the topic of the content, through to the actual features and benefits of your product. One of the best ways to do this is to share a video ad within your email nurture sequence.
You can still make it clear that you’re adding value, but position your messaging so that it’s all about how you can help the recipient. You could say; We hope you’re enjoying the content we share, but we wanted to tell you a little about how product, because we think it’s made for someone like you. This can be a really effective way to introduce and explain your product in one go.
