PRE-ROLL VIDEO - For Nominations - Voting & Year-Round
What are video ads?
Any video uploaded to YouTube can be an ad. Pre-Roll video ads appear before other videos on YouTube. Other video ads appear beside playing videos and in search results.
What does video advertising cost?
We approach your video advertising needs as a package. For Best of Champaign-Urbana, you have complete control over your video content. We set a daily budget that is included in your package. Plus, you only pay when someone engages with your video ad. If they skip it before 15 or 30 seconds (or the end), you don't pay a penny.
Who do we target?
YouTube has a variety of targeting options that help reach the right customer for your business. You can target by age, gender, location, interests and more.
Are results measured?
YouTube has built-in Analytics that make it easy to see how your ad performs. You can also make adjustments to your ad at any time, and run multiple ads at once to see which works best. You can learn how many clicks were used, where the viewer was from in the world, and how many click-throughs you received.
How would the ads look?
We have provided a sample "look" above. For instance, when the 2,411,792 person clicks to watch the the Top 10 Funny Cat Videos your ad would play first.
What is the price?
Our package and pricing includes producing the :15 video ad, purchasing the space, placing it in the Best of Champaign-Urbana video channel on YouTube and providing the embed code so you can share with your customers by email, social media and your own website! Cost of nomination package, voting package and/or thank you package is $495 each. We can use produced video footage the advertiser has "rights" to use, or a series of still photos.
What is the process?
We use materials that you supply, like photos (JPG, PNG, PDF), or generic images (all images must be owned by you, no unlicensed images may be used). This is real video, not a slide show.
