Whether you’re looking to drive a lead, or sign-up a sale – persistence is key (as it actually takes several visits to get a customer across the line). Display and video advertising are the perfect solution for engaging and continuing the conversation with your potential customers. We all know the old adage ‘A picture tells a thousand words’ and combined with the right targeting, the opportunities are vast. Video and display ads work harder. You can hone in on location, demographic and interest topics (to name a few), and choose specifically where you want your ads to appear, who you want to see them and when.
The banner ads that you see on websites and social media with text, images, video, and audio are known in the marketing world as display advertising. This form of advertising can capture your audiences’ attention early in the buying cycle – offering a highly efficient means of building brand trust from the ground up.
You don’t need to be an expert to know that the popularity of online videos has been on a steady increase over the past 10 years. You only have to look at YouTube – now the second largest search engine in the world. Every month, more than 1 billion people watch more than 6 billion hours of YouTube video – with more than half of those views on mobile. The combination of video access, sharing, and community means that YouTube offers a unique opportunity for audience engagement. NOUS knows how to leverage this engagement.
