What Google Adwords have said about the new CTAs

AdWords have launched a new TrueView video ad which gives advertisers the option to include CTAs onto their video ads that appear on mobile. 

In their announcement, they discussed the power of video marketing, especially on YouTube. In a study, they discovered that 47% of US adults said YouTube helped them make a buying decision every month. 

These are very rich micro-moments that can encourage buyers to make a buying decision. On YouTube, it's an excellent way to engage with your target market.

So, Google AdWords' decision to introduce TrueView's new ad format is another method of engaging with viewers and making it even easier for people to make an action.
