More affirmation that advertisers and agencies are shifting spending to video: a new Forrester survey has found that 77% of advertisers and 70% of agencies plan to increase their video ad spending in the next 2 years. In addition, 73% of media companies plan to offer more video inventory to meet demand.
The data is based on a survey Forrester conducted of 529 executives at advertisers, agencies and media companies in 8 countries, including the U.S., for a report commissioned by Teads.
Media companies are mainly motivated to offer more video by the allure of higher CPMs (cited by 44%), followed by providing more engaging advertising to audiences (44%), drawing budget from non-digital ad budgets (19%) and generating revenue from non-TV spending (7%).
But media companies have numerous challenges with video advertising, including reduced ROIs due to high cost of producing video content (cited by 44%), lack of dedicated sales teams (40%), lack of inventory (37%) and lack of familiarity with cost-per-view models (34%).
To address the inventory shortage issue, Forrester asked about interest in "outstream" ads, a format Teads has pioneered, which essentially inserts video ads in non-video content. 69% of media companies said outstream ads would become more important than they are today, along with 70% of advertisers and 77% of agencies. The most-cited benefit to media companies (by 67%) of outstream ads was the ability to execute video ad sales programmatically.
