By Ray Kirsch, Dynamics Online's Search Advertising Manager

Reaching audiences with video advertisements is easy. Over 500 million hours of video are consumed every day, and YouTube has over a billion users. However, capturing the user's attention is challenging. According to a study conducted by Microsoft, average attention spans dropped from 12 seconds in 2000 to 8 seconds in 2013.

  1. Utilize skippable and non-skippable video ads
  2. Present the core message immediately
  3. Leverage retargeting strategies
