InMobi launches a suite of advanced video ad formats

InMobi, a global mobile advertising and discovery platform, today announced the launch of a suite of advanced video ad formats in India. With full screen formats and HD quality videos, advertisers will now be able to offer a TV like experience to users. The platform includes a comprehensive suite of ad formats including vertical videos, interactive videos, 360 degree videos, opt-in videos and in-stream videos.

Vertical Videos: InMobi’s network insights show that 85% of the total app installs in India, are all portrait locked. This makes vertical video a de facto choice for engaging users with immersive content. Vertical-video, a video format that renders in the portrait mode with 9:16 aspect ratio on mobile phones, presents advertisers an opportunity to reach audiences in an engaging, user-first format. As observed by Snapchat, with 9 times the viewing completion rate when compared to horizontal video, Vertical Video is establishing itself as the more natural format for mobile users. InMobi's vertical video ads help democratize the snapchat experience by helping recreate the same across any third party app environment. Also, InMobi’s creative services team helps advertisers rebuild already existing creatives (landscape videos) to vertical video format while keeping the core message intact.

In addition to vertical videos, the suite of ad formats includes:

1.      Interactive Videos: Short form brand videos with interactive rich end cards which increase engagement by 2X compared to videos without end card.

2.      360 Degree Videos: These video ads offer an immersive and interactive experience for the user.

3.      Opt-In Videos: 15-30 second non-skippable video ads that play at natural break points in the app interaction after a user opts in.

4.      In-Stream Videos: Pre-roll and mid-roll video ads that autoplay seamlessly within video content.

Ankur Malhotra, AVP Online Marketing, PayTM said, “We are extremely pleased that we chose to partner with InMobi to share our brand message with users through mobile-video ads. InMobi delivered extraordinary results with close to 4 million completed video views and 35000+ app downloads. We look forward to working with InMobi in future, as their advanced video-ad platform is poised to help Indian advertisers expand their reach and narrate their brand's story through a hyper-engaging, mobile-first format: video.”

Vasuta Agarwal, VP and GM, India, InMobi said, "The hurried Indian today is likely to watch more mobile video ads as compared to TV advertisements. Brands now have a unique opportunity to leverage InMobi's advanced video ad formats to reach mobile consumers more effectively and maximize brand engagement.”

Our typical marketing budget is usually 10 per cent of the topline spend

There are some forces impacting the way our business works. The IT/ITeS sector has changed tremendously. Platforms like Twitter have made everyone journalists. Smartphones have made everyone a photographer. The trend that we are seeing is one of hyperdigitalization, which is causing the lines between product and services to blur.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
