How MINI France defined the standards of a successful digital video campaign
Advertisers have understood that mobile, unlike television or shared computers, allows them to reach consumers on the most personal medium available. However, brands are still struggling to measure the real impact of a video campaign on mobile. In addition, they need to ensure that their video message does not interrupt the reading of a mobile site page or the navigation on an application.
This is why Ogury has created a format that combines total visibility with respect for the user experience. The automotive brand MINI, in partnership with Amplifi, used it to promote the Clubman Canonbury edition, a vehicle particularly suited to young couples, parents with one or two children and mainly city dwellers.
Less intrusive advertising
In a world where everyone is constantly in front of their smartphone screen, it is important to design ads that do not distract users from the app or site they are visiting.
To broadcast this campaign to a target group of 25 to 49 year olds, Ogury used its Thumbnail Ad mobile video format. This Picture in Picture format puts the control of the ad in the hands of the user. It allows the user to continue browsing through an application, while viewing the MINI video in the corner of the page, and to move, enlarge or close the ad at will. This approach is much less intrusive than traditional formats, which interrupt the user's reading of content or browsing.
Beyond traditional standards of visibility
Digital video is an extremely powerful format, but there’s almost no impact if the video is displayed only partially or outside the screen. However, it often happens that the ad continues after the user has scrolled down the page. Measuring the video completion rate (VCR) alone is therefore misleading.
To make matters worse, industry standards consider viewed ads that are only partially visible to the mobile user. If at least 50% of the surface of a video ad is displayed on the screen for two seconds, it will tick the "viewability" box. But in reality, the user could simply blink and miss the message...
An indicator that (really) means something
Aware of these pitfalls, Ogury has developed ad formats that are fully on-screen throughout the whole video. "Of all the players we called on for this campaign, Ogury was the one that gave us the highest performance. The indicator developed by Ogury allows us to measure the real impact of our digital videos. Because a high completion rate without visibility does not allow us to really reach our branding objectives", explains Céliane Grevy, Marketing & Digital Acquisition Manager, MINI France.
As part of a two-year collaboration between the car brand and Ogury, this campaign enabled MINI to achieve a 77% visible video completion rate, based on an 81% completion rate and a 95% viewability rate. Better still, the campaign achieved a 68% target coverage rate among 25/49 year olds. Goal achieved.
