  9. 9. How to Create a Successful Mobile Video Campaign! We Strategize. We Execute. We Deliver. On All Screens.!
  10. 10.        Production Value Matters The key to a great campaign begins with an overall commitment to high quality. That commitment begins with a premium content environment for the ad and extends into the mobile video ad execution itself. Because ads built without the highest standards of production often have short-lived impact, brands must be careful to invest wisely to nurture rich, immersive, and high quality executions with staying power. Premium might cost more, but the value is evident in the completion rates — often 80% or higher. ! We Strategize. We Execute. We Deliver. On All Screens.!
  11. 11.        Beware of bandwidth Marketers should be diligent in delivering a consistent, high-quality brand experience by customizing mobile video ads to suit the user’s bandwidth capabilities. ! Mobile video streaming can be significantly compromised due to bandwidth limitations. Ads served on data networks, like 3G and 4G, should be optimized for lower bandwidth so as not to perform poorly and generate negative consumer engagement. Mobile video ads delivered over higher bandwidth networks, like WiFi, lend themselves to richer features like auto- expanding video overlays. By allowing the option for manual or auto-expanding animation, consumers can experience full-screen content with minimal latency.

  12. 12.        Engaging Obsessive Audiences An inherently intimate and interactive platform, mobile is ripe for engagement. Marketers who win in mobile understand that they must find ways to pull users in by appealing to their interests.! We Strategize. We Execute. We Deliver. On All Screens.! Inviting the inclined audience to initiate, expand, explore, and stay in the brand’s creative strokes arena, Marketers need only think through the right mechanics for enthralling these audiences and keeping them engaged with the content over time. !
  13. 13.        The Power of More •  With high production value and obsessive audiences, the power of giving audiences more of the content they want is undeniable. ! •  Games, interactive experiences, and fun, useful content beyond the original video experience only pulls consumers in deeper, allowing them to engage with brands on their own terms.! •  High completion rates in premium content environments point to the fact that users recognize a fair value exchange. ! •  Engagement beyond the initial 15-second spot identifies consumers who are not just resigned to viewing video before the content; they actually want to watch.  ! •  They also recognize they can get more of what they want by engaging with the video — be that more entertainment, offers, or information about the product. ! We Strategize. We Execute. We Deliver. On All Screens.!
  14. 14.        Create Second-Screen Experiences Consumer behavioral traits like “second- screening” – using a smartphone or tablet to enhance one’s experience while watching TV – are revolutionizing the consumption of video through the mobile channel. ! Audiences are already creating their own second-screen experience regardless of whether one is available from the original content provider. Whether through texting, Facebook, or Twitter, users will interact with content external to the branded environment. Failing to capitalize on social engagement is the mobile equivalent of leaving money on the table.! We Strategize. We Execute. We Deliver. On All Screens.!
  15. 15.         Four Primary Types of Mobile Video Ads •  In-stream video --- The premiere advertising option in mobile. These units appear directly before videos clips or as a commercial break in full episodes. They are most similar to the "pre-roll" video unit that is so popular in video programming online.! ! •  Interactive pre-roll video / interstitial video / pre-app video --- These ads appear outside of the video experience, yet give the advertisers and consumer different options: for example, at app launch, between game levels, or at screen change.! ! •  In-banner video --- This unique ad plays video automatically in a banner, enticing the viewer to tap. Once the viewer taps, the ad expands seamlessly while the video restarts with audio, allowing viewers to watch the entire video in a more robust experience.! ! •  Tap-to video --- An unobtrusive display ad that offers consumers the choice of experiencing a video ad by enticing them to tap to a full screen video ad.!

  16. 16. Mobile Video Measurement! We Strategize. We Execute. We Deliver. On All Screens.!
  17. 17. Mobile video ad measurement has been relatively limited because it’s such a nascent area. Ultimately, however, this is about the future of television. It’s not just video on your desktop or mobile — it’s where the ecosystem is headed. We Strategize. We Execute. We Deliver. On All Screens.!
  18. 18.        Current Misunderstanding To this day, there is a fundamental misunderstanding of how to measure video’s effectiveness, which is completely confounding in light of the medium’s natural technological advantage over the old-school television model. Mobile video advertising’s structure allows for another level of targeting. But given all of the incredibly diverse ways to measure consumer interaction, the industry has consistently struggled to find one measure to elevate marketer confidence in mobile video to the level that television has enjoyed for decades. ! ! In an industry so entirely ruled by measurement, there’s a pinch of irony in the heated struggle to find an acceptable and agreed upon ROI standard for video. Measurement standards from the world of display ads, like click-through-rates and “viewability,” are thrown together in an attempt to present the kind of proven conversion rates that advertisers and brands are looking for. However, they’ve all fallen short, and worse, they’re holding the industry back.! We Strategize. We Execute. We Deliver. On All Screens.!
  19. 19.        Suggested Metrics Below are six important video metrics according to a 2012 survey of agencies from eMarketer & BrightRoll (the percentages indicate how each metric ranks in terms of importance in video campaigns): ! ! •  Views (26%)! •  Brand Lift (23%)! •  Sales Impact (22%)! •  Conversion (15%)! •  CTR (9%)! •  GRP (5%) ! $! $! $! We Strategize. We Execute. We Deliver. On All Screens.!
  20. 20.        Suggested Metrics •  Views, conversions, CTR and GRP should be leading indicators signaling whether your video ad was seen by who you want and whether those folks are buying.! •  The GRP (which equals Reach x Frequency) is a fundamental navigational metric. What this means is that GRP should help steer the campaign towards a conversion when coupled with views and clicks.! •  When used holistically, video metrics help tell a complete story about interest and engagement. Marketers who look beyond the single click and leverage the four real-time metrics in combination will be in a better position to truly measure the impact of their video campaigns. ! We Strategize.

  21. 21.        Conclusions When you combine the rich storytelling of video with the interaction and engagement of mobile, the result is a powerful branding experience that really resonates with consumers.! ! Captivating the audience early is crucial for success when using pre-roll video ads. Users can skip past it after only a few seconds, so the only way to make a return on the interaction is to front-load the content with extremely compelling creative.! ! TV is no longer a single screen in the living room. Video publishers who fail to deliver and monetize mobile content on tablets and smartphones are leaving digital dollars on the table.! ! The stunning thing about tablets and smartphones is that somehow these systems have designed to one single task only when a video is played. And it’s full-screen.! We Strategize. We Execute.
