Multiscreen video advertising solution provider Mixpo today announced the release of a 2014 industry brief: Demystified: Measuring Video Ad Quality. Based on survey responses from over 150 agencies, this report evaluates how media buyers use measurement of fraudulent impressions and viewability to optimize ROI on video ad media buys.

Adweek recently reported that “suspicious web domains cost online ad businesses $400 million per year” in wasted video ad impressions. Maintaining quality control across the diverse and expansive set of media suppliers will be daunting but vital as the online video ad market continues to grow its share of advertising dollars. Mixpo surveyed over 150 Media Buyers from agencies of all sizes who managed video advertising campaigns in 2013 to find out how they value and measure impression quality.

Some highlights include:

  •     Media Buyers estimate that 22% of the ad impressions in video ad buys are fraudulent and 32% of are not viewable.
  •     78% of Media Buyers consider optimizing media buys mid-campaign a key benefit to fraudulent impression analytics.
  •     90% of Media Buyers consider optimizing media buys mid-campaign a key benefit to measuring viewability.
  •     Of Media Buyers surveyed, 79% rank evaluating media suppliers for future campaigns as a key benefit to measuring fraud in their video campaigns and 80% rank evaluating media suppliers for future campaigns as a key benefit to measuring viewability in their video campaigns.

“Because of the high CPMs in video and the fact that demand far outstrips supply for video ad inventory, the best of the best of the fraudsters are taking on the Video Advertising Industry,” said Brian Cohee, SVP of Data Sciences at Mixpo. “Look for a vendor who can substantiate viewability (was your video ad watched?), detect fraud (was it “watched” by a person or a bot?), and assess the overall quality of the inventory.”
