Case Study

Creating an Effective Advertising Pricing Model for a Video On Demand Content Provider

A video on demand (VOD) content provider faced a challenge in pricing its pre-roll, overlay, post-roll, and integrated ads used in its “30 Minute Workout” videos. Lacking more formal, Nielsen-based ad pricing models, Frank N. Magid Associates was engaged to conduct ad recall studies and research the effectiveness of various ad types, ad placement, viewer profiles, and purchase intent. Magid’s results were then shared with potential advertisers to serve as an equivalent to traditional ratings. In providing hard data for the client to use with prospective advertisers, Magid was a key contributor in helping the client price advertising on a platform that previously lacked meaningful viewer and ad effectiveness data.
