Introducing video retargeting with Remerge

Remerge is now offering video retargeting. We were the first to bring native ad inventory to app-retargeting and we are keeping consistent with our goal to be format leaders within our industry, adding video retargeting to our marketing stack. Marketers will now be able to utilize a fully holistic approach to their app retargeting efforts by adding video ads to go along with the existing support for dynamic banners, interstitials, native and Facebook ads.

The changing landscape of online advertising

The landscape of online advertising is moving faster and faster. The current trend is heading towards utilizing immersive ad formats to capture the attention of oversaturated users. The most prevalent medium being video ads. The reason is quite clear: Video is a much more engaging, entertaining and interactive experience than simply seeing a static banner covering your screen or whilst scrolling through your newsfeed. Moving images attract the eyes and can tell a much broader message in a few seconds than staring at a banner ever could.


Benefit from end-cards

So how can marketers take full advantage of video advertising? One powerful tool is the end-card. An end-card is a banner which shows up upon the completed viewing of a video ad, harnessing the interest and attention garnered by displaying the most relevant products or features with a CTA to match. This is the point where the video ad changes from merely holding the viewer’s gaze to encouraging a specific action. Be it “buy now”, “subscribe now”, “play now” or “try now”, the end-card has been found to be a crucial component in running a successful video ad campaign. A static end card can double the CTR of a video ad, a dynamic end card is likely to quadruple it.


New attribution tools

That’s not to say that mere clicks are sufficient in measuring the impact of your video ads. The vast majority of viewers are non-clickers. However, this is not synonymous with an unfruitful impression. User intent, as judged by search activity in the aftermath of being exposed to an ad, increases by more than 150%. That’s a whole lot of interest and activity incorrectly identified as organic traffic if one only accounts for clicks. As such, view-through-attribution is more relevant than ever when running video campaigns. To learn more about view-through attribution, check out our blog post on the topic here.
