There’s nothing hotter in the industry right now than six-second ads. But don’t just take our word for it – you can read all about it in Extreme Reach’s Q1 2018 Video Advertising Benchmark Report.

According to the report, the number of vendors running the bite-sized ad format has risen 300% since the last quarter. The shorter format already makes up 2.8% of all video ads. At the same point in 2017, it was only 0.4%.

But is this seemingly insatiable appetite for bite-sized formats just the latest fad to grip the industry? Is it just a flash in the pan? No, says the TV and video ad tech firm, who are predicting ‘exponential increases’ in six-second ad adoption, driven by the format’s significantly higher-than-average completion rates. But how do you make the most of this format?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
