Frequently asked questions

How much does it cost to advertise on YouTube?

There is no minimum spend for advertising on YouTube. You pay per video ad view or engagement. YouTube video ads can cost anywhere from $0.10 to $0.30 per view. For example, if your advertisement had a $0.10 video view, you would pay $1,000 for every 10,000 people who watch your video ads.

What are the different types of YouTube ads?

There are mainly 3 different types. 


True View

If you’ve selected True View ads to form the basis of your YouTube video advertising campaign, your videos will be shown to users before they view a normal video. You’ll be charged per view for these ads and there’s no upper time limit. There are also four types of True View ads, but the most popular are:

  • In-search ads—these appear in YouTube search results when the viewer’s search is related to the advertisement’s keywords. Sponsors pay for ads that are watched by a viewer.
  • In-display ads—these are legacy formats that appear in YouTube’s promoted video ads overlay, in video suggestions, related videos, and in Google’s click-to-play format. They are opt-in video ads.


This type of YouTube video advertisement is shown before a video, and runs about 30 seconds. They’re charged per click, meaning you only pay for the total number of clicks generated, rather than the number of video views.


Bumper ads

Bumper ads are a 6 second, non-skippable clip before a regular video.

Are YouTube ads worth it?

We would definitely say yes. Video is the present and future of content. With no minimum spend on this platform and the fact that anything below a 30 second view or a full view is free, these are awesome to optimise on.

How do I put an ad on YouTube?

Advertising on YouTube is similar to running any other PPC campaign. The only difference is that you only pay when someone engages with your video advertisement (like clicking on a CTA) or views it. YouTube runs its ads though Google Ads. First you upload your video on your brand’s YouTube channel, create a new campaign on Google Ads, choose all targeting configuration (including your target audience) and networks to display your video ads, and you are good to go!

What is a YouTube display ad?

YouTube display advertising allows businesses to get results with paid visual placements next to YouTube’s videos.
