In particular, rich media was successful at creating buzz surrounding video game and DVD releases, filling the opening nights of theatre shows and raising the tune-in rates of TV programs.

"More and more, entertainment advertisers are starting to embrace rich media as a key vehicle for ensuring online advertising success," said Chris Saridakis, Chief Executive Officer, PointRoll.

But the report also found that entertainment ads don’t necessarily perform better on entertainment-related websites. Some of the best performing rich media entertainment ads were as a result of diverse placements such as on computing, automotive and technology websites.

Computing and technology websites ranked high for interaction and automotive websites for brand time.

The report (pdf) also contains comprehensive advice on best practices when creating rich media advertising.
