    Hello Guys...

    I want to start to promote one of my YT videos through facebook ads...
    So 2 question please (this is the first time I want to advertise anything, so, sorry if my questions may seems stupid!):

    1: The YT video I have is almost 2 years old, has more than 60 000 views ans almost 1000 subscribes...
    So Am I "completely" on the safe side by advertising it? I am scary of any possible problem that might happen! Doesn't google punish me in any case?

    2: Do I need to provide a banner or something like that to do the advertisement? If so, can you pleas let me know how do you provide them?

    Thank you so much...

    Unless you buy views, I doubt anythings gonna happen.

    I think everything should be okay with the Facebook Ads.

    To promote your video with Facebook ads is legit and donĀ“t compromise your Youtube account.

    Well, because I am scary! The some of videos I would like to advertise are taken from somewhere else -the owner of the video told me that I can use his videos- but anyway when it comes to YT/G I am scary!

    I usually just throw something together with photoshop, but yes you do want to supply some kind of banner. Depending on your FB campaign settings you may want to upload multiple size banners as well.

    I have used fb ads and sent them right to my yt video. I never had a problem with youtube. I would agree with previous comments that youtube would see this as a legit form of advertising your video.
    It was easy to create a fb ad... I just took a screen shot of my video and used that as the pic for my fb ad. That may or may not be what you want to do depending on what your video is about.
    One thing you can not do is make it look like it is a video with a "play" button. Facebook would not approve my ad with a pic of my video with the play arrow on the video.
    Let me know if you have any other questions
