Social Media Today says that as a result of more people now tuning into the platform’s audio-only options, including YouTube Music, last November, YouTube announced the addition of audio ads in order to give marketers more options for connecting with their target audiences.
So, are they effective? How do they compare to YouTube’s regular video ad options, in terms of creative approach and response?
Well, now the team from Creatopy has spent $6,797 in testing on both audio and video ads on the platform. The messaging, budget and audience targeting elements were identical for each campaign in the test pool, with only the format changed to provide a comparative sample.
