YouTube made an important announcement about three new ad options that they are releasing. One is about connected television. Another is about YouTube shorts. The third is about audio and podcast related ads. Let me focus on two of those. First is connected television. They have an option for you to take. Take a big moment in your organization. For example, let’s say you are having a big event or launch or something like that. You can now create a big blast for it. That’s why the option is called Moment Blast and you can take the YouTube select content from connected TV and other devices and you can raise awareness for that particular moment. So it could be useful for big launches. The other is audio ads and podcast targeting are now available globally to all users. So it could be a useful option for you if you’re trying to reach audio related audience. So please pass this on to your ads team.
