Online Video Ad Effectiveness Rivals TV's, Budgets Shifting

May 5, 2011

Ad agency executives say online video is an increasingly powerful tool to reach audiences and, largely because of video's targeting capabilities, fully six in ten say online video ads are more effective than (30%) or as effective as (31%) ads delivered via television, according to a survey from BrightRoll.

Moreover, nearly two-thirds of ad execs (64%) say they are shifting TV dollars to video, while 86% say they are shifting at least part of their display dollars to video.


Ad dollars are also shifting from search, social media and direct response, though in slightly more modest numbers (28%, 27%, and 26%, respectively). 

Below, other findings from the third annual Online Video Advertising Report, which surveyed 100 ad agency executives and media buyers on their spending patterns and sentiments toward online video advertising.

Nearly three in ten (28%) ad execs expect the largest increases in ad spending in the online video category for 2011, followed by mobile video (27%) and social media (25%).

Targeting Capabilities Valued

More than two in five ad execs (41%) cite online video's targeting capabilities as the medium's greatest value, up 9 percentage points from 32% in 2010.

    Good to see that the ability to reuse creative is on the bottom end of most valuable aspects. Why re-purpose material when you can further strengthen your original message through online video?

    The shift is something to be expected as new windows of advertising opportunity are opened every day. The shifting becomes a challenge when the company must decide what percentage of what advertising dollars go to a new medium or opportunity. That will require research into your target audience’s behaviors, such as mobile/smartphone/tablet and social media usage.
