Digital video advertising is the fastest growing online ad category by quite a distance, with total spend set to increase from $6.32bn in 2014 to $15.39bn in 2019 (PWC). While video has always been popular, the ongoing shift of users to smartphones and tablets, coupled with the ease of posting video content online, has accelerated the growth rate.
This substantial increase in content does not alone explain why advertisers are so keen to invest large portions of their budgets in video. However, the facts of why they should are staggering. According to Forrester, people retain 58% more information from audio and visual stimulation than from other content types. Added to that is that 64% of users who view an online video are more likely to make a purchase than those who don’t. (Comscore). To put it simply, video ads simply perform better than other forms of web based advertising.
