From the conversations that we’re having with clients, there’s a new digital divide forming and its catalyst has been the evolution of online video.
The capacity for ‘televisual’ content on the web was expected to provide a route to all the brand cash that lay waiting in the hands of TV buyers. But, in the digital industry’s efforts to attract those budgets, somehow the brilliant fundamentals of online got left behind.
Traditional pre-roll is interruptive and broadcast; it is the TV model transported to the web. And, if the brief history of the internet has taught us anything, it is that, to succeed on the web, an idea must be borne of it.
The digital industry has made major advancements in the last few years in terms audience aggregation and targeting, engagement pricing models and amazing, user-friendly creative formats. But, while pre-roll is packaged up along with VOD and sold to TV buyers at a premium, the new online video offerings that combine the emotion and impact of TV with the audience efficiency and engagement possibilities of the web – are taken straight to the digital guys one floor down. This has to change.
