Multiscreen video advertising solution provider Mixpo today announced the release of a 2014 Industry Report, Demystified: Video Advertising On Social Networks, at the Adage Digital Conference. This report outlines what agencies, and their clients, are doing to capitalize on the ability to extend video ad campaigns to the major social properties, how they are going about it, and why. It is available for download at http://www.mixpo.com/socialvideobrief.
Marketers’ use of video advertising is growing exponentially, as is their use of social marketing. Video and social are colliding to create immense opportunity for advertisers, yet this rapid change has resulted in questions and confusion. Mixpo surveyed over 100 U.S. agency executives to gain insight into their plans and views related to video advertising on Facebook, Twitter, and other major social properties. Mixpo also integrated third party research to round out the findings.
Some highlights include:
- 91% of agency clients plan to spend money on social advertising in 2014
- Yet, a mere 26% of agency execs described themselves as “reasonably competent” when it comes to video advertising on social media and 40% said they were still “growing their capability”
- 32% of agency executives think they are advertising on Facebook with video (which is not yet possible)
- As soon as Facebook opens up video advertising, 49% of agency execs expect to use it to run video advertising campaigns
“The question for agency executives is not ‘if’ they will use video advertising across social networks, the question is ‘how,’” said Walter Harp, VP of Product Marketing at Mixpo. “It is crucial for agencies and marketers to partner with technology partners who make it easy to extend video advertising campaigns to social.”
The ability to run video ad campaigns on social media is a relatively new phenomenon. This report will help marketers get up to speed fast. To download a complimentary copy, please visit http://www.mixpo.com/socialvideobrief.
