Benefits of Pre-Roll ads

The popularity of video advertising on TV all over the world is declining from year to year. Obviously she will be out of the game soon. Media buyers shift to programmatic video advertising. Better Internet loading speeds, the ability to evaluate the performance of ad campaigns, more effective audience targeting and a low entry threshold make programmatic video advertising more preferable for advertisers. In this article I will talk about the most effective digital video ad format - In-Stream Pre-roll.

Pre-roll ad is a type of in-stream ad.There are also mid-roll and post-roll. As the name implies, pre-roll plays before the featured video. Skippable pre-roll is the most effective ad type. This type of ad doesn’t annoy users by interrupting the content like a mid-roll. 

Since your ad is guaranteed to be viewed, you’ll get 100% viewability of your commercial. Even if viewers skip your ad, they've already been exposed to your brand, product or service. Users will be able to click on the skip button after a while. The minimum skip time is 5 seconds.

Pre-roll advertising is extremely effective for growing brand awareness. Running an ad before the users' desired content means the audience is likely still engaged, interested, and willing to sit through a brief ad to get to the content they want to see. 

We’ve added a new feature to In-Stream video pre-rolls - customizable skip time.

Now you can select the required skip time - among 5, 15, 20, 25 or 30 seconds.

New feature is available for all video ad types:

How to create pre-roll ads?

In some cases 30 seconds pre-rolls will better stimulate viewers to purchase. That's true that longer video gives more creative space. However. the higher the skip time you set - the higher CPM (cost-per-mile) will be. Choose the required skip time based on the promotional video. If you fit the essence of your product in the first 10 seconds, then there is no point in prolonged skip.
