Vine is showing us that viewers love very short video content. What if it could be used in advertising? Here's why the six-second ad might be the next big thing.
Six-second ads will save agencies millions of dollars
The average cost of a 30-second ad is $300,000, with higher end marketers shelling out even more for the long exposure. The problem is that the consumer attention span is much lower, which means marketers are wasting tons of money on footage many people skip or click past. Agencies and brands might not realize that they are burning through cash without the appropriate ROI.
Chip Scully, VP of online video advertising at Extreme Reach, explains why traditional advertisements might be too focused on building the message rather than getting the message across. He believes fixing this will save the industry an enormous amount of money, while increasing video ad effectiveness.
