Here are a few of our faves that are in the running for Best YouTube Ads of the past decade:
2010 – Old Spice “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like”
2011 – Volkswagen “The Force”
2012 – Dollar Shave Club “Our Blades are F***ing Great”
YouTube has become such a valuable medium for advertisers both big and small, with many brands shifting big ad budgets to the Google owned video platform. It’s no wonder – the numbers position YouTube as an obvious digital advertising powerhouse…

Why Advertisers Need to Get Serious About Video
We are at the brink of a watershed moment in digital video. Fueled by the high demand for premium, original content, this second annual marketplace, taking place this week (April 29-May 3), is widely expected to attract $1 billion of investment.
This level of investment inevitably will propel the entire digital video ad industry. Advertisers now have the foresight and financial incentive to produce original digital video advertising and make digital video a central focus of creativity, breakthrough interactivity and brand storytelling.
Interactivity aside, there’s room to think beyond the constraints of the traditional TV spot. In 2012, the most viral ad wasn’t 30 seconds long. It didn’t feature a cat, celebrities or a household name brand. It was a 30-minute video from Invisible Children, a nongovernmental organization, to rally opposition to Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kony. Its current tally on YouTube of more than 97 million views makes its audience comparable to that of the Super Bowl.
Consumers are eager for more dedicated and eye-opening digital video advertising content. It’s already become a vibrant element of the stories that inform us, as demonstrated by the interactive feature “Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek” from The New York Times. Also, original digital video content has become a regular extension of television programming, especially of programming targeted to a younger audience.
Digital video has all the attributes of television—sight, sound and motion, and high-quality, original content—with the great benefit of interactivity, targetability and global audience.
Marketers are beginning to recognize this. In 2012, advertisers spent $2.3 billion on digital video advertising, an increase of 29 percent over 2011, according to the IAB Internet Advertising Revenue Report. But all too often, the ads themselves are an afterthought—repurposed television commercials, 15- to 30-second spots with very limited interactive features.
While it’s understandable that marketers want to dip in their toes before jumping, it’s time for the high dive. Too many advertisers are missing out on the valuable advantages of this medium, and too many consumers are ready for these new advertising experiences that aren’t presently available to them. Indeed, the marketplace is primed to produce interactive, engaging and powerful original digital video advertising.
We’re at the precipice of a new era of advertising where sight, sound, motion and interactivity are united into one robust, surprising, even multilayered brand communication, far beyond the capabilities of a traditional television commercial.
But it’s up to marketers, agencies and publishers to take that leap and jump in.

Online Evolution: 2013 – The Year of Brand Advertising
For marketers, 2013 marks a shift in online advertising—to bigger budgets, sounder metrics and a continuing focus on brand advertising that we identified last year. According to the 2013 Online Advertising Performance Outlook, a report produced jointly by Vizu, a Nielsen company, and the CMO Council, advertisers are changing how they view the online medium. Long the bastion for direct response, marketers are now embracing online for branding purposes aimed at shifting consumer perception.
In 2013, advertisers project brand ad spending to grow more quickly than direct response. Sixty-three percent of marketers project that the dollars allocated to online brand advertising will grow in 2013, and one in five believes the increase will exceed 20 percent. These numbers are in line with what Vizu saw in marketers’ 2012 projections, demonstrating continued momentum on this front.
Roughly half (51%) of marketers also expect spending on direct response to increase in 2013. One in four stated that increase will exceed 20 percent; however, 41 percent say their digital direct response advertising budget will stay the same as last year.
While brand marketers are projecting overall growth in brand ad spending in 2013, they are also predicting their spending in particular digital channels will grow faster than others. Nearly three-quarters (70%) of brand marketers plan to increase their use of social media in 2013, followed closely by mobile advertising (69%) and video advertising (64%).
These numbers are all up from 2012 projections, indicating a continued shift toward the channels where consumers are spending an ever-increasing amount of their time. And the brands aren’t alone in their thinking. Agencies are also projecting growth in mobile advertising (81%) and video advertising (73 percent), followed by social (57%).
There’s no doubt that digital advertising is on the rise as more advertisers and agencies begin to understand and accept the opportunities the medium brings. How they use digital, however, will continue to evolve.

Online Video Viewers Tune In During Primetime
It should come as no surprise that the prime time for online video viewing is now the same as it is for traditional TV, but now we’re seeing research to prove that out. As more viewing moves to mobile, tablet, and connected TV devices, the amount of viewing that happens online during the prime time hours continues to increase. And according to online video ad startup TubeMogul, brands who serve advertisements during that time are seeing greater awareness and brand favorability for their products.
TubeMogul, which operates an online video ad buying platform, collected data from hundreds of millions of impressions run during a series of top brand campaigns in 2012. It studied the overall lift and effectiveness of those campaigns based on data from its BrandSights product, which provides surveys to viewers who have seen ads that it has delivered.
The survey found the prime time for online video is the same as it is for traditional TV — that is, the hours between 8:00 and 11:00 p.m. every night. Not only is that around the same time that viewers are tuning into online video — the research found that the number of video impressions served peaked at around 11:00 p.m. — but it’s the time that’s most effective for viewers to see branded advertisements.

Content Marketing: Why Online Video Is Vital
Content Marketing: Why Online Video Is Vital
If you feel online video is just another over hyped, passing fad, think again. In fact, online video is gaining strength as a source for content marketing, as highlighted by the recent B2B Demand Generation Benchmark Survey for 2012.
The take-away? Most respondents prefer video over white papers, case studies, even live demos with reps. And you should factor that into your 2013 content marketing strategy.
By the way, this survey was compiled by marketing automation giant Eloqua, CMO.com (Adobe’s content site providing digital marketing news and insight for senior marketing executives around the globe) and Software Advice, an online consultancy which publishes product profiles, comparisons and best practices guides to help buyers find the right software for their business. Read the blog post with all the details and an insightful video here.
So, Why Video?
The web trending towards video is made obvious by much more than the example above. After all, YouTube is the number two search engine in the world. This may lead you to the conclusion that we simply don’t like to read anymore. But the video preference situation we’re witnessing is much more detailed than that. So the question you may be asking yourself (or your boss may be asking you) is: Why video?
For this, let’s reference an expert. A real Ph.D. level expert, Susan Weinschenk, Ph.D. — also known as The “Brain Lady.” As a leading speaker, author and consultant to brands like Amazon, Disney, Walmart and South By Southwest, she brings a deep understanding of the psychology of customers and why they do what they do.
She has uncovered four core, very human reasons we are drawn to video as a form of content marketing:
#1: The Fusiform Facial area makes us pay attention to faces – this is an actual brain function that hard-wires us to use the human face as a gathering point for information and believability.
#2: Voice conveys rich information – yes, the simple sound of a human voice speaking to us has an amazing way of converting information into meaningful content.
#3: Emotions are contagious – here’s a subtle but powerful aspect that we may take for granted. The body language of emotions is an appealing and we naturally love to share.
#4: Movement grabs attention – another trait that runs deep in our collective anthropological DNA is the power of peripheral motion. Since the stone age, we’ve survived by noticing things in motion – looks like we still do!
