Research also Shows Users are 200 times more likely to click on In-Stream ads vs. Standard Banners

MediaMind has released new research today outlining the power of in-stream video advertising.  One of the fastest growing segments of online advertising, MediaMind’s analysis of millions of impressions shows that:

  • An average of 70% of In-Stream impressions play all the way through
  • 75% of In-Stream impressions play three quarters of the spot duration –  providing advertisers plenty of exposure time in front of consumers
  • According to MediaMind’s benchmarks, the average Click Through Rate (CTR) for Standard Banners is 0.010%, while the benchmark CTR for In-Stream video is 2.15%, an increase of over 2154%.

While clicks are far from a perfect measure of advertising effectiveness, they are a proxy for the amount of traffic that a campaign generates.  The data suggest that video can be a phenomenally effective way to drive users to a brand’s website for further engagement.
