Essential Elements of a Video Ad

  • Brand Story: 

The most essential element to be focused on in a Video Ad is the story or the message that you want to convey to your audience. It should be engaging and must include relevant details about the product/service that you are promoting through your video ad. An experienced performance marketer is well aware of the type of stories that can engage/influence the audience.

  • Video Length and Speed:

Along with the story that you want to communicate, you must be mindful of the duration or video length. As you must have read a modern-day consumer has an attention span of 8 seconds. It means that they only stay 8 seconds on content and decide whether to consume it or not. Even if they found it interesting, they would not spend more than 30 sec on content. Hence, your video ad should not exceed such a limit.

  • Visuals Used:

The performance marketer needs to plan for the type and quality of visuals being used in the video. They can be either animated, realistic or random articles symbolizing the brand or product, and used just to grab the audience’s attention. But the visuals used must complement your brand/product or the message you want to communicate to your audience.

  • CTA Positioning:

While creating the video, the marketer must be wise while placing the CTA button. It must be placed either at the end of the video or at any interesting part where you expect the visitor to stop. Such a placement would help in better click-through and conversion rates for your website. The CTA can buy now, shop now, inquire now, book your product/service now, limited stocks or any other relevant choice of words.

  • Device Optimization:

An essential element to be focused on optimizing your video for different platforms and networks. Your audience can be on a desktop, smartphone or tablet when he/she gets your ad. Hence, your video must be easily playable and visible across the platforms. It can also be stated that video ad is optimized well enough that they can easily be played and it does not impact the user expectations due to slow loading and higher resolutions. 

Types of Video Ads

Different types of Video Ads can be focused on by a performance marketer. Such type is also dependent on the brand/product type and its nature.

  • In-Stream/In-Display Ads:

These are the types of ads that mostly appear on streaming platforms such as YouTube or other OTT platforms. These types of ads mostly appear either at the start, or end of the video, but depending on the video length, these ads can also appear in the middle of streaming. Also, these ads are mostly unskippable, hence requiring the marketer to be creative enough while creating such ads. A dull or disjoined ad can impact your audience’s attention and their association with your brands.

  • Out-stream video ads:

These are the video ads that are mostly found on websites or social media but are not part of streaming platforms. These ads are usually short between 10-15 seconds, and focus more on awareness about a product or offer. They are also a part of the native advertisement type used by performance marketers to reach the targeted audience in the marketplace.

  • Bumper Ads:

These are the shortest 6-second ad formats used by marketers for quick interaction with the audience. Such ads are unskippable, hence if they arrive on the user screen they must have to see it. Hence, it provides marketers with an opportunity to communicate their ideas to the user and convert them to their potential customers.

  • Linear Ads:

These ads are simply aligned with the content that you are viewing on your screen. For instance, if you are streaming a video on an OTT platform, then such ads can appear in the middle of the content. Along with being aligned, such an ad format allows the user to play and pause the ad content and also to rewind it. Hence, making it more engaging/interactive.
