YouTube Ads


Reach Users On One Of The Biggest Platforms In The World

YouTube is the world’s second most popular website after Google and due to the incredibly diverse demographics of people that regularly use the platform, advertising on YouTube is a perfect fit for most brands. With almost 2 billion monthly active logged-in users, the potential for reach on YouTube is limitless.


YouTube Ads Agency

YouTube went live in 2005 and after realising what a huge impact online video was going to have, was purchased by Google for a cool $1.65 billion the following year. Advertising on YouTube can be done directly through the Google Ads platform. As Optimyzd is a Premier Google Ads Partner, you get to benefit from our close working relationship with Google/YouTube.


Due to our partnership we are fortunate to be able to attend specialist training, workshops and seminars at Google/YouTube HQ, as well as assist both Google and YouTube with beta testing of new products and features on those platforms. This gives our clients a real boost and head start on the competition.


YouTube Demographics

As mentioned above, one of the best things about YouTube advertising is the ability to reach a wide range of audiences. As is the case for search, display, and social media advertising, you can target users on YouTube based on demographics such as age, gender, parental status. You can also target based on interests and topics by using different affinity, intent, and in-market audiences. You can target placements directly if you already know certain videos or channels are relevant to your ads and you can target people who have seen your videos or subscribe to your YouTube channel.

What and How to Promote on YouTube

Whether you are looking to promote a video, promote a channel, promote an app, increase brand awareness, promote consideration for a product or service, or sell, then YouTube has a campaign type for you.


In the past, YouTube was seen as a platform that could only be used for brand awareness. In recent times there has been a number of enhancements added to the platform for advertisers that want to get more from YouTube.


From sending traffic to your website to running shopping campaigns and more recently, collect leads direct on the YouTube platform. These are just a few options available on a platform that has possibly the single most engaged community (millions of them) in the world.
