Tom Breeze Youtube ads

For the last few months, I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking about YouTube Advertising. And for good reason. Andrew and I spend a lot of time talking about what’s working on FB and IG and email, but very little time talking about YouTube Ads.

It’s not because I’m holding out on you. Frankly, it’s because I don’t know a lot about them.

I’ve never run YouTube Ads and have always thought of them as a bit of a black block. To remedy that, I brought a best-in-class guest (Tom Breeze of Viewability) on the show to explain how you can use them to grow your business.

We get into the details of who should be using them (and who shouldn’t), the difference between advertising on FB and YouTube, a discussion about creative, and a lot more. This a 101 episode because it will help you go from knowing nothing about them to understanding whether or not they would work for your business.

Enjoy part one of this very informative episode!
