Video Advertising Ireland

Why Video Advertising?

Thanks to the ever-growing penetration of smartphones and the preference to obtain information in a limited amount of time, the video advertising market in Ireland is set to exceed spending of 55m in 2022 according to Core Media. We have a strong focus on innovative and effective video advertising solutions. The difference with our video advertising solutions is the fact that they are housed within some of the most trusted digital publications ensuring brand safety and quality on top of sophisticated targeting.

Video lets you convey a lot of information in a limited amount of time.

Thanks to its audio-visual nature and immersive nature, video allows brands to convey lots of information quickly from call to action, how-to guides, and the inclusion of brand ques. Unlike TV, video is all about the content and the story. It is becoming less about the high-level production qualities of TV and more about the right message to connect with the target audience. This significantly lowers the barrier to entry for many brands and businesses looking to tell their story. The options for video are endless so the only question that remains is what story to tell, to what audience, and what format would suit those objectives.

Video Connects with Hard to Engage Audiences

Video content is an ideal medium for storytelling, but it is also extremely easy to consume the narrative. Sometimes modern life is too busy to have time to read long product descriptions or dig deep into services. The modern customer wants to see the product in action. People's preference to be informed, engaged, and entertained by video is one of the key reasons to consider it as part of your campaign.

Video with News Brands Builds Trust

Trust is the foundation of conversions and sales. Research has shown that context has a strong impact on trust. When video advertising is run alongside a print campaign within new brands, it enhances the overall effectiveness by 73% and the trust measures by 25%. Video in isolation is a strong medium for building trust as it gives the opportunity to stop selling and let the people come to you by providing them with interesting and useful information in an engaging format. The conversational format of video creates a narrative with the user and is why 57% of consumers say that videos gave them more confidence to purchase online.
