Study: Interactive video ads getting more attention
Posted by Whiteboard Animators at avril 15th, 2016
Data from The Power of Video-Driven Experiences: What Attention, Emotion and Perception Can Tell Us About Good Advertising finds interactive video has a bigger impact on consumers than standard banners and pre-roll video ads do. The study used eye tracking and facial coding to come to its results. Nearly 20% of those studied said they ‘would consider a purchase’ after watching either an interactive pre-roll video or an interactive rectangular video unit.
« This study validates what we’re seeing every day – that interactive video is a powerful digital vehicle for brand impact, » said Bryan Melmed, VP, Insights Services, at Exponential. « The choice of ad format has huge implications for marketers and advertisers; advertising focused on engagement delivers more compelling, memorable experiences. »
Other interesting findings include:
• 69% of those who viewed ‘video teasers’ spent more than 5 seconds looking at the content
• 11% of those who viewed standard animated banners spend the same amount of time
• 82% of those who viewed teasers reported favorable/very favorable brand perception
• Video units held viewers’ attention 2x longer than standard pre-roll units
Exponential commissioned EyeSee to conduct the study.
