    Hi there...

    Is it possible to get traffic directly to my YouTube Video using PPC ? Can I use bing ads or FB ads for this matter?? I want to mot only increase the visits to my YT videos but try to see if PPC can cause the visitors to click the Clickbank link -and purchase the product- which is in the video description or not....
    Any experience?

    Thanks

    I don't see a reason why you can't do so. I have been using Facebook Advertising for promoting some of my YouTube videos, and with the correct targeting, the results have been great.

    Go ahead and give it a try.

    Thank you so much...
    Did you use text ads or graphical ads for FB Advertising? If I spend say 50$ on FB ads, How many visitors I can expect to my YT video in minimum? (Can I get at least say 500-1000 per 50$?)...

    I won't put my YT channel in risk if use ads directly to the video?

    Isn't Bing better for this job than FB?

    Thank you so much

    You can also use youtube's own adv campaign, it will put your video on popular videos sidebar. But FB and Bing will just do fine. I prefer FB than Bing though :)

    Thank you... This is the first time I am going to start this.. I am scary a bit... My video has almost 70000 visits in total and has ranked in YT... I prefer to advertise it somewhere else in stead of YT itself (I want to sale a Clickbank product which is in the video description, so I guess it is better I go for FB/bing ads instead of YT ads)...

    Did you have any experience with Bing/FB ads for a YT video?

    Thanks

    Well, I am not sure, but say something like 500-1000 a day (if the traffic doe snot convert)... But if it converts.. as much as possible (if YT does not bite me!)!... Is it a logical expectation?

    I did with FB ads, using fans page made for the channel, boost the video post so it appears on peoples timeline, there was split traffic, some people will go to your video on youtube, some won't, but you also got some extra page likes. I just copying the same method as popular FB to teespring business campaign.

    Sorry badut jenaka, I am not sure if I got your meaning...

    Do you use "your" fan page to bring FB add traffic to it? Is this what you say? Are the add in FB text ads or the graphic ads? Which one you use? How ,many traffic you get to your FB fanpage per every 50$ you spend for the FB ads?

    Thanks

    It just added layer, so you are not promote the youtube video link directly. So basically I have this fans page for my channel. Then I just share or post the video on the page. Then I boost that post using FB ads so it basically text ads contain your video that will appear on peoples timeline.
