    Would it be possible to advertise own ads on own videos ? Anyone tried it in the past ?

    The Site-RPM from one of my Channels drop to 0,02$ after the update - so 10k Impressions for .20$ is ultimate for the Advertiser, but how can i target this Audience ?

    Thanks

    Do you mean buy ads on youtube and tell youtube to run the ad on your videos?

    Pretty sure that you can't do that. Once you buy ads on YouTube you don't have too much control over what videos the ads get shown on.

    What you could do is find people who would be willing to do a sponsored video, just pick the person carefully.

    Or you could just do videos that are basically advertisements.

    There was a method shared 1-2 years ago that reminds me of your post. Black hat trick. The guy took his video, and spliced in his own ad on the first 5-30 seconds of it. It was a replica of how regular ads look. Then he set up annotations in the place where it says "skip this video". to go to his money site. He said it worked out really good. Might require some twisting now; YT is getting rid of annotations next month.
