There are various of methods that company owners can do when branding themselves and one connection they can make is through advertisement. In that way, the audience or the consumers will know what the business can offer either through their products or service. There are however guidelines set to which anyone can follow especially those that are aiming for their own success in this type of avenue. Many have set their own in order to make the connection working and even then, there are those that are pretty accurate when making up for this type of work.
This is in regards way back 2008 when IAB released their AD metric definition for digital video in-stream which is meant to be used and help publishers and markets when creating their own video advertising. See, there are couple of ways that this can be seen through but this type of guideline can be virtually beneficial both for the owners and the service providers altogether. Throughout the time, the steps were improved and have been took place during the time period. The newer standard of ways are as follows defined by IAM adverting organizers:
- Player Operation Metrics Player operations
This s a common type of operation when interacting to consumers and with the player. This is considering the metrics that most users have in their own tools, such as; player expand, audio specifics (mute or un-mute), pause, resume, skip and even videos that can collapse and rewind. To consider these things is a must. Why so? It’s a bad tactic to just key-in the advert when there are different types of consumers. Others don’t want this kind of video when they are browsing. So the operators must be very careful when creating their own type of advertisement.
- Impressions or Impression metrics
This one is to serve as video campaigns when indicating the total number of ads served in a specific page. However, the impression must also follow through the qualifications especially for those that are very specific in their browsing connections. One slip and the video will crumble which means it will all be all for nothing.
- Video Click-Through Rate
This one now is considered as the less important in the metrics but it is the most widely used in advertising. This one hear counts all clicks on each link that will redirect users to the companies’ landing page. The most common and thereby the best utilization of CTR is it gathers information of the user.
- Percent Complete Completion rates metrics
This metric determine how many individuals have actually watched the video according to its interval at a normal speed. This will fall under percentage of: 25, 50 and 75 when garnering the total amount of watched adverts without skipping or forwarding some scenes.
- Completion Play Rates Completion rates
Measures the number of plays of each video as watched in full or 100% in a normal speed.
- Time Spent Viewing These metrics
This indicates the time that users have watched the video at a normal speed. It also includes rewinds, replay or re-watched in order to see its effectiveness. the amount of time that users spend watching the video at normal speed. It also includes the number of seconds added by rewind events
- Invitation rate Invitation rates
And lastly, this one comes up with performance measurement for those interactive ads which have additional content.
The metrics are used to see the performance as well as any improvements needed especially that there are things that company owners need to know around the field. This will give them an idea on how to clearly target consumers. This also makes advertisement successful to come around and operate on each server.
