Listen Now Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show: YouTube Remarketing Brett's Story Right out of college, Brett started a small ad agency. In school, he sold radio ads, but he loved the way local TV ads made an impact and created local celebrities. In 2004, Brett got into search and SEO, which led to building OMG Commerce in 2010. OMG Commerce is a full-funnel ecommerce marketing agency. At every stage of the funnel, the agency focuses on attracting the right shoppers to each client's brand. To do that, they combine search, shopping, display, and YouTube ads. Brett thinks that search ads and YouTube ads are a match made in heaven and that YouTube ads create unique opportunities for remarketing. For example, OMG Commerce has a client that sells iPhone accessories. At the top of the funnel, if someone is looking at iPhone case reviews, the agency targets that person with a YouTube ad. Someone actively searching on Google for a specific product such as an iPhone 7 Plus screen protector will see a Google Shopping ad. When someone who clicks doesn't convert, they begin seeing remarketing ads. Although OMG Commerce primarily uses Google products, Brett believes in using any kind of marketing that works. Also, connecting the dots at the top, middle, and bottom of the funnel is important. Brett's agency makes sure clients have AdWords conversion tracking, Google Analytics, and the correct attribution model. Then the agency pulls together all of these elements so their clients see the impact. Listen to the show to learn how Brett's company built their claim to fame. YouTube Versus Facebook Ads Brett says a lot of merchants getting good results advertising on Facebook want to know if they can do something similar on YouTube with the Google Display Network. The answer, for the most part, is yes. (Remember that Google owns YouTube.) Businesses usually want to do both YouTube and Facebook ads. Compared to Facebook, YouTube advertising has advantages. Facebook counts a video view (and thus charges the advertiser) after three seconds, whereas YouTube counts a video view after someone has watched for longer. With YouTube, a view counts after 30 seconds or the length of the video if it's shorter (like a 15-second ad). That longer view time is a better measure of whether someone is engaged with the video. Plus, YouTube is expanding the ways you can target viewers. With in-market audiences, you can target people who are in the market for a particular type of product. For instance, if you work in the skincare business, you can choose people whose search patterns indicate they're in the market for skincare products or services. With affinity audiences, you can target someone who's into travel, food, or something else. Brett thinks one of the best options is the ability to target someone based on their search behavior because YouTube is the number-two search engine (behind Google). Search behavior offers great insight. For example,
