Start getting a strong ROI with YouTube ads

While companies are all in with PPC ads, so many marketers are still ignoring YouTube. What they don’t know is that there’s a huge audience waiting on YouTube, ready to engage and make a purchase.

People don’t just go on YouTube because they’re bored; they go on YouTube to learn something, do something, and most importantly – buy something.

Get in front of your ideal customers at exactly the right moment.

Consumers are turning to YouTube to search for product reviews to help them make purchase decisions. For marketers, that’s the perfect time to get in front of prospects: when they’re looking at your competitors. That’s the time to show them your offer.

This course combines psychological research and time-tested tips to give you the ins and outs of YouTube advertising, including finding “selling moments”, capitalizing on timing, varying ads based on customer types, maximizing reach, perfecting the creative, and so much more.

This course is right for you if you are…

  • Looking to add YouTube into your ad channel marketing mix
  • Already running YouTube ads, but not having much success with it
  • Want to acquire more customers profitably

This course is NOT for you if you…

  • Have no plans to advertise on YouTube
  • Are already a pro at this and getting a lot of success

Skills you should have before taking this course

While this course is perfectly suitable for people new to YouTube advertising, previous experience with the Google Ads platform would be a benefit. YouTube ads engine is essentially Google Ads – and so has the same targeting capabilities.
