Tremor Video Inc. Releases Video Predictions 2013

Brands Will Use Online Video Ad Channel in Myriad Ways, From Testing Creative for TV Ads to Ending Gender Stereotypes

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/02/13 -- Brands in 2013 will increasingly use digital video advertising to test creative ideas before producing expensive TV commercials, tell more engaging and multichannel stories, and improve the way they measure the effectiveness of their marketing dollars, according to a new report produced by Tremor Video Inc. Moreover, brands will use video metrics to better understand their audience and eventually end the practice of gender stereotyping that has arisen due to comparatively simple TV metrics, the report states.

"Brands in 2013 will create and run multiple ads online, assess which ones people engage with most, and use that insight to decide which creative to use for their TV ads," says Tremor Video CEO Bill Day in his company's Video Predictions 2013 report. "This approach could be used for the Super Bowl, the Oscars, or any large TV media buy where historically there has been a hope and a prayer in terms of the right creative for the right audience. We're starting to see marketers use online video strategy to ensure their bets are the right ones."

With regards to gender stereotyping, Day predicts that marketers this year will use online video to understand who is interested in their products.

In the report's video, Day says:

"Because of the relative simple nature of TV metrics, marketers had to make short-cut assumptions that all men want to look at car ads and women are the ones to target for food and cleaning products. And as we know in today's environment, that's just not true... the opportunity with online video is not to chase gender-stereotypes... but to extend your buying and your understanding. Who better to target your ad to than the people who are leaning forward... and sometimes those people look nothing like the audience you have traditionally assumed is the audience for your product. Done well, online video allows you to not be constrained -- to use a broader approach to reach all those customers, some you've reached traditionally and some you have not, in an effective way."

Tremor Video Inc. is using financial data to predict that more marketers will increase their investments in digital video advertising. The company's revenue from interactive online video ads, which give people the chance to opt in to see more content, nearly doubled from Q1 to Q4 in 2012. At the same time, mobile interactive video units grew: In Q4, 55% of the company's mobile ad revenue came from interactive units, up from 12% in Q1.

The report, consisting of a blog post and video, also predicts that brands and agencies will:

1. View TV and digital video ad channels as complementary. When shooting TV ads, brands and agencies will develop additional content designed specifically for interactive ad units. The power of touch (enabled by myriad touch-screen devices) will join sight, sound and motion as the best ways to engage an audience.

2. Jump on the transmedia bandwagon, following in the footsteps of Hollywood. With the ability to tell stories across myriad platforms, media planners will embrace agnostic planning across all screens. TV and video will rule branding to the detriment of print, outdoor, radio and online display advertising.

3. Diminish the reliance on the decades-old TV metric -- the GRP. In addition to Gross Rating Points, which assess how many times an ad has been shown to a given audience, brands will use online video metrics to arrive at an ERP for their ad campaign. Effective Rating Points, a relatively new industry term, reveal which segments of an ad campaign's broad target audience are engaging with the ads, and if they are watching them to completion.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
