Analysis for 'Brightcove'
Tuesday, November 15, 2016, 11:08 AM ET|
Here’s an eye-opening data point: according to new research from Brightcove, 46% of respondents said they made a purchase as a result of watching a branded video on social media (with 53% of U.S. respondents doing so). And another 32% of respondents said they considered doing so. The data shows the increasing importance of social media as an influential platform for marketers and the power of branded videos - as opposed to conventional 15 or 30-second ads - as a key purchase motivator.
With marketers increasingly concerned about ROI on their spending and consequently shifting dollars into digital media, the research only magnifies the challenge TV networks face in retaining advertisers’ allegiance.

Poor quality online video experiences cost brands in numerous ways, according to a new Brightcove survey. 62% of respondents are likely to blame the brand, rather than their ISP or video hosting provider such as YouTube, when encountering poor quality video. In addition, 60% of respondents experiencing poor video quality said it would dissuade them from social engagement with the brand, 57% said they'd be less likely to share a low quality video and 23% said low quality would make them hesitant to purchase from the brand.
The Brightcove survey highlights quality issues with YouTube specifically, which brands have aggressively embraced for its massive reach. But while YouTube offers huge audience potential, 75% of survey respondents reported experiencing buffering and freezing on the site, with 33% saying these problems affect half of the videos they watch. This leads to about 1/3 of viewers experiencing problems abandoning the video rather than waiting for the buffering to stop.

Thursday, February 17, 2011, 9:42 AM ET|U.S. newspapers uploaded approximately 2.4 million videos in 2010, more than 3x the volume of the next-closest industry verticals of broadcast and online media, according to the latest "online video & the media industry" report from Brightcove and TubeMogul for Q4 '10. Newspapers uploaded 1.2 million titles in Q4 alone, a 147% increase in volume over Q3. The accelerating trend suggests newspapers are deepening their commitment to online video as a way of boosting online engagement and increasing ad revenue. The new data also seems to offset recent news that newspapers are reducing their involvement with online video.
Monday, September 13, 2010, 9:31 AM ET|When it comes to videos being viewed off of their own web sites through embedding, it turns out that newspapers lead all other verticals, according to a new Q2 '10 online video usage report from Brightcove and TubeMogul. For newspapers, 13.6% of their videos are consumed off-site, whereas for broadcasters, which had the lowest percentage of off-site viewership, it was 1.9%.
For minutes watched per view on-site vs. off-site, newspapers decline a little, from 1:25 minutes on-site to 1:10 off site, far better than broadcasters which dropped from 3:00 minutes to 1:59 minutes. Only one vertical, online media, actually increased its off-site viewership time, to 1:45 minutes from 1:32 on-site. Whether through proactive syndication or making video embeddable on other sites so that users can virally distribute video, off-site viewership is important because it helps bring content to where users already are, rather than forcing them to come to a destination site. Of course, more views equals higher monetization. With their primarily short-form video, newspapers are well-suited to off-site consumption, and from the data it looks like they understand this and are taking advantage.
