Mixpo will help to create and deliver a rich media video advertising campaign and waive the regular fees. By bundling online video ads with traditional television spots, marketers have a better opportunity to engage the consumer and create conversions. Plus, with regular fees waived, there is very little risk in putting a few ads in the online space.

Just how important could online video be to a local advertiser?

According to the latest comScore research, almost 17 billion videos were viewed in April. Although most are still being watched on free platforms such as YouTube there is a growing amount of television content being seen online and a growing number of advertising opportunities awaiting savvy marketers with an early hold on the medium. By marrying local television or cable ads with an online presence, marketers have an even bigger chance to capture the attention of consumers.
