YouTube Ad Video Creator

YouTube is the second most-visited website in the world, coming in right after Google. The online video platform receives more than 30 million visitors each day, and nearly five billion videos are watched on YouTube on a daily basis. Those stats and others like them are driving businesses to advertise on YouTube in droves. If you 

want to help companies reach the 1.3 billion people who use YouTube, you should consider launching a virtual business as a YouTube Ad Video Creator.


Becoming a YouTube Ad Video Creator isn’t hard if you have video editing and marketing experience to start with. The first thing you’ll need to do is decide on the tools you’ll use to create the ads. Wistia, Animoto, Camtasia and PicMonkey are great options to get you started. Alternatively, if you’re skilled in videography or animation, you can use your talents to create videos on your own. 

There are three types of ads you can use on YouTube: TrueView, Preroll and Bumpers. Your choice will determine the length of the video, where it will appear and whether or not it can be skipped. To be a successful YouTube Ad Creator, you must understand the nature of each of these types and what the requirements are, so that you can help clients decide on the best option for their ad campaigns. Though not required, it’s also good to have at least a rudimentary understanding of Google Ads, so that you can help clients navigate the process if they need additional help beyond receiving your ad. 

Here are just a few reasons you should consider becoming a YouTube Ad Video Creator:

  • Thousands if not millions of businesses are actively advertising or looking to advertise on YouTube, so the client pool is wide.
  • YouTube has millions of viewers everyday, so the platform is a great way to gain substantial exposure for your audience.
  • YouTube Ad creation doesn’t require any degrees or credentials, just some creativity and know-how.
