Brand Republic said ths:

“The YouTube Sponsored Video will allow people posting videos on YouTube to promote them in a sponsored videos section. The poster can then bid on keywords, just as in the Google AdWord system, paying on a cost-per-click basis.

 The system is open to anyone who wants to promote their videos, and will be an “easy, effective, democratic and affordable way” of doing so, YouTube wrote on its blog.

There will be no minimum spending requirement and a daily budget can be set.”
