FACEBOOK VIDEO ADS: a game changer
Facebook is stepping up it’s video ad game in a big way. The social media giant has announced advertisers will only be charged if a video is viewed for at least 10 seconds vs being charged after a video would auto-play in the newsfeed for at least 3 seconds.
This, compared to YouTube‘s 30-second rule has recently resulted in Facebook video ads getting way more views vs those published on YouTube.
Facebook insists its video ads provide value the moment they’re displayed, but the platform has opened up to the 10-second option because of feedback from advertising partners. Facebook notes Nielsen research proving that video ads have value even if consumers view Facebook video ads for less than 10 seconds — noting powerful brand awareness increases.
The massive potential for online video advertising growth has made competition more stiff among key players in recent months. Other social platforms are also starting to move heavily into video advertising too: Twitter recently announced its own video ad product, and will only charge advertisers if 100% of the video appears on a user’s screen for a minimum of 3 seconds.

Videos on Facebook now get 4 billion daily views, almost four times the figure from a year ago, according to Fortune. And it’s working for online publishers too: Buzzfeed had 500 million video views on Facebook in April, while Mic saw 33 million views from 8 videos in just two months.
That kind of reach will increase Facebook video’s appeal to marketers. A recent survey by marketing firm Mixpo, charted for us by BI Intelligence, indicates Facebook is quickly becoming the choice of platform for video marketers. Of the 125 US marketing and media executives surveyed, 87% said they plan to run an ad campaign on Facebook’s video platform this year. That’s 24 percentage points up from the people who said they ran a video ad campaign on Facebook last year. Facebook’s video platform is also more popular than YouTube video now, according to the survey.
Since the survey only asked 125 people, the results should be taken with a grain of salt. And YouTube still owns a wider video creator base, a stronger copyright policy, and a more established revenue-sharing model than Facebook, BI Intelligence says. But it’s also proof that advertisers will only continue to spend more on social video, with Facebook video being a major recipient of their spending.

10 Years of YouTube. 10 Years of amazing ads.
Which are the best YouTube Ads?
YouTube Advertising has definitely come of age. In 2014, four of the top ten most-watched videos on YouTube were ads. As YouTube celebrates it’s 10th birthday, YouTube wants you help pay homage to the greatest brand advertising moments from the past decade in it’s #10YearsofYouTubeAds campaign.
Here are a few of our faves that are in the running for Best YouTube Ads of the past decade:
2010 – Old Spice “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like”
2011 – Volkswagen “The Force”
2012 – Dollar Shave Club “Our Blades are F***ing Great”
YouTube has become such a valuable medium for advertisers both big and small, with many brands shifting big ad budgets to the Google owned video platform. It’s no wonder – the numbers position YouTube as an obvious digital advertising powerhouse…
Odds are that you don’t need stats to prove video is exploding on Facebook, however. Just scroll through your own News Feed. Video is everywhere.
The amount of video posted from people and brands to Facebook’s News Feed increased 260% year-over-year, Facebook recently reported.
With the proliferation of video on Facebook, it’s becoming increasingly important for businesses to incorporate it into their marketing strategies.
Facebook Media reported that more than half of all daily Facebook visitors in the U.S. watch at least one video a day. In fact, the number of video posts per person increased 94% in the U.S. over the past year. Further, 76% of Facebook users say they use the social network to discover videos.
Consumers want video, and Facebook has become the platform of choice for watching and, more importantly, sharing.
Brands are now posting to Facebook directly, rather than sharing YouTube videos on Facebook.
According to Socialbakers, brands posted more videos to Facebook than they did on YouTube last December.
Businesses don’t need gigantic advertising budgets to get videos in front of the right audience either. Facebook makes it easy for businesses to target nearby and relevant customers (so you aren’t paying to promote your videos to people that wouldn’t use your product) and track viewership as a tool for increased ROI
