What if you could Hijack your Competitors’ Traffic and send it directly into your own funnel?

This is the first thing I always ask business owners before telling them about the power of YouTube Ads.

It’s no secret that YouTube audiences are typically already in the market for a product or service.

Think about it…

How often do you search “How to…” on YouTube?

People on YouTube are already looking for answers. As an advertiser, you can use this to your advantage through competitor targeting.

Let me break it down for you…

You’ve put together an ad that gets people excited. It hooks your audience, educates them, and calls them to take action by going into your site or funnel.

You can put that ad DIRECTLY on your competitor’s video.

Imagine that.

Someone goes to watch your competitor’s content, but in front of that video is YOUR advertisement. You are essentially hijacking that traffic and putting it directly into your own business.

Not only is this completely ethical, but it is also a lot easier to do than you might think.

This isn’t just a theory. I’ve implemented this strategy to generate massive amounts of leads and sales time and time again. Directly from your competitors to straight to you… with no return stamp ;-)

If this sounds exciting, I have good news for you. Competitor targeting is just one of the many tools in your YouTube video ads arsenal.

I can’t give away all the tools here, but you can book a call with me.
