Google Ads this month has emphasized the importance of video in Performance Max campaigns, citing a 12% average conversion uplift for advertisers who include at least one video.

The announcement outlines three methods for incorporating video assets: uploading existing content, using the built-in video creation tool, and leveraging auto-generated videos powered by AI.

Why Video Matters:

  • Consumer behavior across platforms demands engaging formats like video.
  • Studies show an average 12% conversion increase for campaigns with video.

Video Inclusion Options:

  1. Upload Existing Video:
    • Utilize existing assets or create new ones.
    • Google AI automatically resizes and trims for optimal reach.
    • Follow best practices for action-oriented video ads.
  2. Video Creation Tool:
    • Integrated directly into campaign workflows.
    • Offers templates, text/music/voiceover options, and previews.
    • Watch a demo video for detailed instructions.
  3. Auto-Generated Video:
    • Ideal for limited creative resources or time constraints.
    • Google AI uses existing assets (images, text, product listings) to generate videos.
    • Group assets thematically for content direction.
    • AI selects elements like template, colors, fonts, and music for optimal audience engagement.
