How it works
Video advertising on the Internet allows the broadcast of video ads to users, who use devices connected to the Internet. Your ad is displayed in the content they watch / read. The broadcasting of your video ad no longer requires great effort on your part, and huge budgets for marketing, and broadcasting of the message. Via various techniques for targeting, your ad can reach those users, who might be interested in it, and at a time, when they need it. To implement a good campaign with video advertising, you need specialists, who have access to the tools to measure the best options for positioning of the video spots. Since this type of advertising is relatively more expensive than many other types of Internet advertising, is almost necessary to trust professionals, if you have decided to invest your budget in such websites. Thanks to our extensive knowledge of the market in Bulgaria, we will be able to offer you the most suitable mix for the use of video advertising, while broadcasting your messages. The campaign accountability can be implemented with the assistance of our partners at Gemius.bg.
The matter-of-fact video advertising can benefit from all known forms of users targeting in Internet – demographic, by interest, contextual, etc. An inconvenience is the fact that part of the publishing groups doesn’t offer this type of advertising. Since the range of the audience on the first-class (premium) websites is not always wide enough, so we also offer the use of advertising networks, thanks to which the needed number of users can be reached. Our experts with software help and based on many years of experience, will be able to offer you the optimum mix for your more accurate (precise) targeting needs.
Video advertising standards on the Internet are as close as possible to television advertising. This allows the use of your TV spots and the realization of this type of advertising. The standard length is 15 or 30 seconds, preferring unlike TV advertising, is the 15 second version. The formats we offer are:
- Pre-roll – broadcast video ads on Bulgarian and international sites with legal content that allow such type of advertising. The recommended duration is 15 seconds. Your ad can be measured by an independent institution. The pre-roll ad is a video ad broadcast before the user has access to the content he wants to see.
- Pay per play, audio On – video advertising starts at the customer’s request. In this case, you only pay for the clicks / views of your ad.
- Pay per auto play, audio Off – video ad is automatically displayed when a page is opened. The relay is silent and can be played on request by the customer. Ad is paid for impressions.
- Performance Video Network – A network of sites that allow the broadcasting of a 300×250 px TV ad.
A survey of Yahoo in 2014, however, suggests that users of video advertising on the Internet like it but want to have an interactive element in it. Developing the right creative is one of the most important steps in the process of implementing video internet campaigns. We at the Digital Marketing Group know the possibilities of producing video ads and we can offer you the most appropriate options for visualizing your creative.
In most cases, video ad is purchased at a cost per 1,000 impressions. There are, of course, variants where other forms of payment can be negotiated. The cost of this type of advertising is often higher than the other forms. You can use different types of discounts – volume, preferential, and so on. Some forms of ad purchase also allow pricing model PCV – pay based on viewed ads. Since the scope of this type of format is not so great for Bulgaria, we recommend combining them with other forms of video advertising to reach a sufficiently large audience reach. Digital Marketing Group works with the publishers of most premium websites, with the various advertising networks in the country and abroad and can provide attractive prices in the implementation of video advertising campaigns.
Positioning and measurement
Your ad is positioned in the content of premium sites or ad networks. With the advent of new technologies, video advertising can be streamed to other devices that are connected to the internet – like smart TVs. There are different methodologies to measure performance in the internet environment, they are also applicable to video ads. Site publishers often provide access to individual ad statistics. The data they provide must contain information about the number of impressions, clicks and the ratio between them, CTR. Some publishing groups work with more precise softwares and give exceptionally good reports on individual campaign conversions. These reports sometimes amount to about 50 pages. Their use and careful review enable customers to improve their business offer for subsequent campaigns. If you want a publisher-independent monitoring of your ad’s accountability, you can use independent Internet monitoring agencies such as Gemius, AdOcean, or Google services.
