How to Automate Video Ads?

Video automation simplifies the creation of video ads by using templates and dynamic data. With a single video design, you can produce limitless variations by inserting different text, images, and video clips for each advertisement. Here's a brief overview of how it works:

Create a video ad template

To automate video ads, start by creating a template for the video ad. Within this template, you can assign placeholder elements such as text and media. In the next step, we'll set up an automated workflow that lets you replace these placeholders with different copy for each video ad.

Whether you're making video ads for social media or websites, there are ready-made templates you can use. However, you can also create your own video designs using the template editor. It offers lots of customization options to perfectly match your brand's style and meet your specific needs.
