Build better media plans on YouTube and across the web with Reach Planner

How many people can I reach on YouTube for $100k? And how much should I spend on TrueView versus Bumpers?

Starting today, we’ve made it easier to answer questions like these by introducing Reach Planner, a new tool in AdWords. Now, for the first time, advertisers can forecast the reach and frequency achievable on YouTube and across Google’s video partners, in over 50 countries. This resource will simplify the planning process by providing unique reach across devices, for all core audiences and video formats.

In our quest to make planners' lives easier, we are going beyond reach curves to introduce a key new feature: product mixes. Planners have been using Google's video formats to reach viewers in different ways, and now we’re giving more insight into which formats work best together. With product mixes, you can give us your marketing objective, ad preferences and budget, and we will recommend the right mix of YouTube’s solutions to achieve your goal. For instance, if you want to maximize reach to drive awareness, and have short creative assets, Reach Planner will recommend the right allocation of spend between TrueView in-stream and Bumpers to achieve that goal.
