There has been a lot of research done on how many people are watching online video. Now, a new study shows us how engaged people are with in-stream (pre, mid & post roll) online video ads.
• 69% completed watching ads that had no interactivity
• For ads with interactive components, automotive ads had the highest completion & interaction rates – Over 80% of viewers watched the whole ad and 12.3% interacted with the ad
• For ads with just a click-through, consumer goods had the highest completion rate at 97%. Insurance ads had the highest click-through rates at 1.54%
• In-stream ads had interaction levels 4 times higher than banner ads
