Stumbling upon and with too many research I hereby quote my experience and knowledgeable stuff for this next big thing – YouTube Lead Form Ads. This might serve as a bullet which when fired will get you the right number of Hot leads through YouTube Videos.
Need a better explanation? Hmmm… Let me try. Well, have you ever thought of collaborating Lead forms available on Facebook with YouTube ads? And, instead of users skipping your ads on YouTube they would fill in their details to give you more insights? Sounds cool, right?
The solution to this problem lies in the title of this article.
This roundup post might prove as a source of being trendy with the latest updates made by the search engine lord – Google.
YouTube has different types of Video campaigns like In-stream ads, Video Discovery ads, Outstream ads and many more. Right from the creation of Video campaigns in Google ads to the creation of this new feature would be a turning point for the PPC Digital marketers.
So let us deep down further and know in detail about the New feature of ‘YouTube Lead Form Ads’.
What are the benefits of Youtube Lead Form ads?
Since we all know the power of YouTube and the level of effect which a viewer can make by watching a Video. This feature will provide viewers with an in-line form submission which means the viewer doesn’t have to close the ongoing video to fill in their details. Just a small drop down with few questions and woohoo you are done! The viewers can multi-task and they still have an option to navigate your site if you have added relevant CTA’s (call to action) to your video. I would personally recommend adding the prominent CTA’s by creating a TrueView for action Campaign.
As per the research conducted, few of the marketing agencies are using this feature on their YouTube ads. However, as per the latest information provided by Google support team, this brilliant feature is still in Beta testing mode. It is allegedly said that to use this feature of Lead form ads you need to be Whitelisted by Google.
Some are also using this feature…
Yes, there are few channels and marketing agencies which are taking the benefits of this newly added powerful feature. Google ads have made this feature available only to few Marketing channels who have met their criteria of spends on their Adwords account.
As per the conversation with one of the Google support assistants you will need to make sure that you have spent at least $1000/day for at least 2 weeks to avail the beta testing version of YouTube Lead Form ads.

In my opinion, YouTube has always been upgrading and is coming with new features dynamically. Google as always keeps on trying new features in their Beta testing mode and for sure once it is live it might change the shape of Digital marketing in terms of YouTube PPC.
