Here are 8 YouTube case studies of different genres and industries, that help you understand how Google's brainchild can help you expand your video marketing horizon.

Here are 8 YouTube case studies of different genres and industries, that help you understand how Google's brainchild can help you expand your video marketing horizon.

Video was the most powerful way to show the stark difference between their authentic approach and the traditional mattress industry’s gimmicks. And video ad targeting helped Tuft & Needle reach likely customers – people visiting their website, looking for real estate or doing searches like “best mattress.” Starting on a budget of just $50-$100 a day, the company now dedicates half of their Google advertising to YouTube.
