The Bottom Line: Strategy and Solutions

  • This advertiser had never used video advertising, so they wisely focused the video advertisements on people who may have not had any exposure to their organization and message.
  • This advertiser decided to continue running radio ads in the local area (as they had in the past), so video ads were targeted to geographic locations that radio ads wouldn’t reach. This greatly increased their reach and audience pool.
  • In order to maximize the likelihood that the audience would take action to buy tickets and/or donate, the video advertisements focused on people interested in the arts, entertainment, festivals, and events.
  • The strategy worked! 64% of their ads were watched all the way to the end, which showed we reached an audience that cared about our advertiser’s message.
  • By combining traditional radio broadcast ads with digital pre-roll video (the only change made from the previous year’s campaign), the client increased their sales by 30%!
  • The client was so impressed by the increase in sales by just adding video advertisements that this non-profit organization will continue to use this strategy for ALL future events.
