New report predicts ‘exponential increase’ of six-second ad format

By Colin Pye

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%.
