Ad blocking is a serious threat for ad supported video businesses today. There were 615 million devices blocking ads worldwide by the end of 2016, 62% (308 million) of those mobile. 10-15% of internet users in the US are already actively blocking digital ads. On average ad blockers are costing publishers up to 30% of their ad revenue. The obvious need for an effective Adblock recovery solution led to making of ADIQ, Brid’s proprietary ad de-blocking tech.
It’s been busy here at Brid video platform HQ these past couple of months so we have a lot to talk about. The main thing you may notice, besides enhancements to the core product and few market-specific solutions, is our new site redesign and new Brid video platform pricing plans. What we did is up the amount of GB all our plans have available considerably. For starters, now it’s possible to achieve 3 times more bandwidth (depending on the plan). Did we also mention that the price is still the same!?
