Video Stands Out as the Preferred Medium to Run Ads

Written by Alfredo C. on . Posted in Digital, Marketing, Report Center, Technology

Video has become the preferred digital marketing platform of 2014.

Video has become the preferred digital marketing platform of 2014.

You shouldn’t always follow tech trends or speculations, but when the numbers are talking, you have to listen and pay close attention: What’s going on?, Why?, Is it useful and feasible?

The present year, almost at its end, has given us a lot to look at. The digital marketing medium has seen some very interesting changes and movements, particularly with regard to ad platforms and systems, which have been known to adapt to new technologies. The most transcendental thing in my opinion is the trend making video the preferred platform for users to consume content online, and the way the industry is taking advantage of this to run advertisements.

This trend is already taking precedence, and in 2015 we will surely confirm its proliferation. All the reports confirm it. We will continue to see advertising in standard formats, but video will reign supreme.

Some Statistics of Online Video
