Your YouTube ad creative is the single biggest factor when it comes to succeeding with YouTube ads.

And the quickest, easiest, (and most dependable) way to make a winning creative on YouTube is this: 

Model your YouTube ads based on the ads your competitors are running (and making money with) right now.

In this short post, I'm going to show you how to use the free YouTube Ads competitive research tool we created so you can:

  • "Swipe" any YouTube ad you see Track & performance on it over time
  • Search our database of thousands of YouTube ads for other ads that are working right now in your market.

...So you can confidently create YouTube ads for your business based on what's actually working right now (instead of just guessing).

Ready? Let's dive in...


Step 1: Download the Free VidTao YouTube Ad Research Software

Step 2: Install the Free SwipeTube Chrome Plugin

Next, you'll follow the instructions (check your email after signing up for the free tool above) and go ahead and install the SwipeTube Chrome plugin so you can log (with one click) any YouTube ad you see while browsing YouTube.

Step 3: "Swipe" Your Competitors' YouTube Ads

Simply browse YouTube normally, and whenever you see an ad you like, simply click the VidTao SwipeTube plugin icon in your Chrome browser and you'll add that YouTube ad to your VidTao YouTube ad "Swipe File", so you can track that ad's performance over time.
