Rich Media Ads

Anyone serving ads on the Internet should take a look at Rich Media. Rich Media ads show a 38 percent higher click-through rate than normal banner ads.

Rich media ads are well on the way to dominating online advertising. Broadband connectivity is the norm, Internet users are overlooking banner ads, and Rich Media Ads are becoming the best option for advertisers.

How it Works?

The Rich Media experience, video streamed to the user, is similar to watching a traditional television commercial - with the added benefit of being able to click through to the advertiser's website, or to skip the ad and go to the main website.

Types of Ads

  • Intromercial/ Full Page/ Site Capture
  • Expandables/ Shoshkele
  • Sliders

Intromercials Ad Format

The Intromercial ad format is a simple, repeatable format that sets a good standard for advertisers.What's attractive to advertisers is that intromercials reportedly deliver 5 to 10 times better response rates than banner ads (partially because intromercials allow a plethora of rich media executions).

A Full page Intromercial takes over the entire screen and usually appears either when the user first enters the website or is checking one of the internal pages. Since this blocks the actual web page it usually last for few seconds so as to not irritate the web visitor. Most Intromercials feature a "continue" and a "about the ad" buttons that allow the visitor to skip the ad or know more about the advertiser. They usually have a frequency cap of 1, so the user only has to watch it on the first visit of the day.

By default, Intromercials just play for few seconds before getting redirected to the requested publisher page.

Intromercials with Leave-Behind

An additional option is available where by the Intromercial leaves behind a small 120 x 90 pop-up at the top-right corner of the screen. This popup has a Close and Replay buttons. On clicking the close button, the small leave behind will disappear. On clicking the replay button, the entire Intromercial will play again. The Leave-behind pop-ups are shown only for the first four page request by the particular user.
