INSTAGRAM IN-STREAM VIDEO ADS TIPS

Sharpen your In-Stream Video Ads game

Content must be your own

Content you share must be your own and you need to own the rights to any music used. Also, for video length, 2-4 minutes is the sweet spot.

Turn on Feed previews to earn

In-Stream Video Ads appear when people click to watch Instagram Videos from previews in their feed. And since videos only earn based on Feed views, you must have feed previews toggled ON.

Keep it friendly

All videos go through an advertiser safety review. To understand more about what content is considered advertiser safe, view our Content Monetization Policies.

Earn only with 2+ minute videos

Your video needs to be 2 minutes or more to monetize (sweet spot, 2-4 minutes). Static images, polls, looping videos, slideshows or text montages won’t qualify.

Maximize your earnings, avoid engagement baiting

If your video incentivizes people to click on a link or solicits engagement in exchange for extreme behavior, it may not be monetizable.
