Why adding a video to your display campaign pays-off
Display ads that contain a video perform better than ads without – this is a fact. We found that compared to the average display ad, the average CTR for a video ad has increased for the past three years. Thus if you are looking to boost engagement with your creatives, using a video is definitely worth an experiment.
Why data feeds and real-time updates are essential
Making the most of key dates and events is now more important than ever. What we have discovered is that CTR rises and falls with certain events – notably Euro 2020.
Delayed for a year, this European football competition saw the average uplift for ads featuring a data feed compared to those without during the tournament reach 21% and CTR for data feed increase by 28%. Therefore, combining your most potent strategies for key events is crucial!
Why having a flexible and powerful ad creator is key
In 2020 the busiest day for ad views across the industry was the 26th September. And this was an extraordinary day for sport, the world-over! This particular Saturday saw large esports events, the Stanley Cup finals in ice hockey, the basketball NBA finals, the French Open tennis finals, AFL final, as well as golfing Ryder Cup – as well countless football matches taking place, including the Premier League.
And with so many events and different viewers to cater for, having the ad tech to create and control a variety of different campaign creatives was key. Particularly, when in 2021 there were days with far more ad views!
