Video Production

A response agency that understands YouTube

Happy Hour’s 17+ year track record of producing response advertising for TV gives us an edge when it comes to YouTube campaigns. Our team are experts in a variety of techniques and tactics to engage viewers’ attention and make every second count, this experience which proves invaluable when we are designing YouTube adverts for our clients.

We’ll look after the whole process, from taking your brief to researching audience, through to scripting, pre-production, shooting (or animation) and all post-production.

At Happy Hour, we’re big believers that one size does not fit all; there’s a creative execution to fit each audience type we are targetting, also depending on where they are in their purchasing journey.

Gita Luz, Fundraising Manager, British Red Cross

YouTube can absolutely work as a response advertising channel. However, many brands just repurpose other It’s worth having the right creative strategy however, and not just repurposing TV advertising or other video content. YouTube works best when putting the right content in front of the right consumer at the right time during their customer journey.

We are used to strategizing multi-layer YouTube campaigns, where different creative targets the consumer at different stages of their awareness and interest in the production or service.

We also consider different audiences, and their mindset when the advert is impressed on them.

 All of this goes into designing creative that is fit of purpose on YouTube.

 Of course, great creative is also a must to show your product in its best light and deliver the best return on your YouTube advertising spend. Most ads on YouTube are skippable after six seconds, so to capture your audience’s attention in that time requires compelling visuals and messaging.

The great advantage of advertising on YouTube is that every campaign can be highly targeted, monitored and optimised in real time. The Happy Hour team are experienced at turning round multiple versions of content quickly – to enable different creative executions to be targeted to different audiences – maximising the effectiveness of the commercials.
