Jun Group: Video marketplace maturing

While the bulk of video ad placements continue to be short pre-roll units, the marketplace is getting ready for a shift - and that's a good thing for advertisers. That, according to new data out from Jun Group. The new research shows that while pre-roll remains the front-runner, savvy video brands are allowing for opt-in, which is improving engagement.

According to the Jun Group study:

• 30 second ads have a 97% completion rate
• Ads longer than 2 minutes see 87% completion rates
• 70% of all video views are from clips over 1 minute

As for engagement, the best engagement time (4.50%) was for clips between 30 and 60 seconds; viewers over age 55 (4.35% completion rate) and between age 35-54 (3.49%) had the best completion rates. What's more, researchers found that by offering opt-in and by asking the viewer a question before launching the clip interaction rates within the content were higher.

Meanwhile, data from comScore shows Americans viewed nearly 38 billion video clips in August 2012, with nearly 10 million of those clips advertisements. More than 87% of US Internet users are now watching online video. For the month, the average content clip was just over 6 minutes while the average video ad came in at 0.4 minutes.

The Jun Group report also notes that branded engagement within Facebook seems to be declining (9% decrease YoY). While a number of consumers still visit a brand's social page, more are going to the actual branded website to look for content, products and information.
