How to add videos to Ads for mobile apps
Like regular Text & Image campaigns — you can create video extensions by simply adding a video background to your existing ads, or use video ads with separate texts, bids and strategies. The first option is the fastest, whereas the second allows you to manage purchasing in the Yandex Video Network more closely and experiment with the messages in your video clips .
Don't worry if you don't have clips already prepared — it takes just a few minutes to make one using templates in Ad Builder.
You can choose from 400 different video backgrounds in our library, edit the color scheme, change the text of the button, set up the sound or add legal information to the clip. To find out more about how to set up effective performance video ads, have a look at our check list.
