Objective for TrueView Campaign on DV360

 

  • Maximize brand awareness and reach 
  • Drive more views on the video at a lower CPV
  • Effectively measure the impact of the campaign 

 

Campaign Execution and Optimization 

 

Tested different videos - In the beginning we created the campaign with 2 videos; one with a voiceover and the other without a voiceover. We ran the campaign for 2 days and evaluated which video had a higher view rate at a lower CPV and then directed the budgets of the campaign to that video.

 

Leveraged various audience types and optimized budget allocation - We leveraged broad upper funnel audiences like Google audience lists, created custom audiences of competitors and investment platforms, alternate investments, 3rd party lists and combined audiences. After this, we evaluated which audience lists worked better and directed more budgets to that audience list.

Automated Bidding - We used an automated bidding strategy of “Maximizing Views” to leverage AI & ML to drive more completed views at a lower CPV and higher view rates. 

 

Frequency and View Caps - We leveraged campaign level frequency caps to avoid over-exposure of ads to a single user across multiple targeting options and maximized the number of unique users reached with the budgets.

87% of the views were completed views 

63% decrease in CPV which drove 0.6x incremental views
