According to the latest research data, the “play” button is, in fact, the most compelling call-to-action on the web. It was also estimated that by 2019, online videos are going to generate 15.4 billion in spend, and generate 80% of all internet traffic. No wonder outstream video advertising has emerged as an important revenue source for most publishers whether they are limited with video content or not.
Essentially an outstream ad is a video ad unit not tied to any piece of publisher video content. It can run within standard ad placements, on the corner of the page, or within the content of a written article. They are made to be 100% viewable, and they will only deploy and play when the unit is onscreen and the consumer is moving the page around.
According to recent research data, Ad blocking may very well pose a major threat to publishers, which strongly rely on advertising for revenue. Ad blocking on mobile could potentially reach desktop levels, and if that occurs, US digital media companies are looking at a projected loss of approximately $9.7 billion across digital ad formats next year (via BI).
A new report from Juniper Research fund that about 19% of total online ad revenue will be lost to Ad Blockers by 2022. The popularity of ad blockers is clear, as is the fact it hurts online publishers. So, what can businesses do to ensure their video ad content is seen on any desktop or mobile device?
