Hey guys, Jace over here at Ydraw. Today I want to go over just a couple things on video remarketing, why it’s important and what you need to do to put it into play.



1. Build Your Audience

First off, most people take multiple touches for them to become a customer.

If I’m going to go get a product, usually I’ll look at it online, I’ll talk to somebody, I’ll look at it some more, and then finally a couple months to sometimes years down the road, I’ll finally make a decision.

Something you can do to stay in front of your audience is create a simple video remarketing campaign.

Very first thing you need to do is actually build that audience.

Google gives you the ability to put a pixel on your website. If you go to Google Ads, within Google Ads or Google Analytics, you will find a pixel. You can also use Google tag manager.

You go in there and you find a pixel, you get the pixel and then you put it on the header of your website. That way when someone comes to your website they then get a cookie and you can start running and remarketing.

But you can go a step further… so instead of just running and remarketing, you can run them a video remarketing campaign that shows up on YouTube.

Also, they’re getting pretty aggressive on their TV advertising, so if people are coming to your site, they’re home watching TV, you can then run them an ad.

The very first thing is to get that pixel and get it on your site. You should be doing that anyway and building out your audiences. A 30 day, a 15, a 7 day, a conversion, there’s all types of audiences.

Then also, make sure that you build out an audience of anybody who has watched your YouTube videos.


2. Get A Video

Step two, you need to get a video. It can be professional or it can be homemade. You just need to get one, make sure that video’s very engaging.

Make sure that you have a good call to action on there and you’re telling the audience what you want them to do.

Another thing you can do to help it be engaging is educate. Kind of like what I’m doing here, I’m going to give you guys a lot of education, provide you some value, and then you can turn around and ask for their business later on.

If you can’t afford an expensive video, pull out your phone and give them some good education. Then make sure you give them a call to action like go visit your website.




3. Create Your Google Ad

Then finally when you have those two things in place, you got your pixels, you’ve tracked your audience, then you have your video, now you need to go create your campaign.

Go to Google Ads.

You’re going to target your website visitors or target anyone who’s watched your YouTube videos.

A small budget works but if you have too small of a budget, you need to make sure you exclude videos like games.

I even like to exclude mobile sometimes. I feel like when people are on their mobile phones they’re going to a YouTube video they want to watch that’s there and they’re more likely to skip.

But on their desktop, I get higher conversions. So, I’ll turn off my mobile remarketing campaign and just leave it on desktop.

There it is. If you have questions, you can go visit us at Feel free to call us. We’d be happy to help you on your video. We’d also be happy to help you set this up.

We’re doing video marketing campaigns all the time and this is just one little aspect of video marketing.
