Creative Elements Found to Have a Direct Impact on e-Commerce Holiday Campaign Performance

New Study by Intelligent Creative Leader VidMob Reveals Video Advertising is More Effective than Static Ads in Driving Purchase Rates

VidMob, the leading platform for Intelligent Creative, announced the results of a study that revealed specific creative elements that currently have significant impact on e-commerce advertising campaign performance. VidMob’s latest study analyzed ads that generated over 3.2 billion impressions across Facebook, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and Facebook Audience Network during the holiday timeframe. VidMob observed that for this time period and industry vertical, video ads can be more effective for driving sales compared to static ads. Additionally, the data show that the design of an ad, such as leading with text in frame for video ads, can also dramatically increase performance. The way audiences respond to creative signals is influenced by a variety of factors such as ad format, placement, and context, and marketers are adopting the practice of ongoing monitoring of creative performance.

Key findings include:

  • Movement matters. Video ads have 30% higher purchase rate vs static ads.
  • Short and sweet is best. Short duration videos, 1-5 seconds, performed 167% higher vs average.
  • Quick text intro works. Video ads with text in the first frame saw a 3x sales lift vs ads with text presented later.

“The holiday shopping period is high-stakes for retailers and e-commerce companies, especially this year as they see record volumes of online shoppers,” said Beth Gostanian, VP VidMob. “VidMob’s study reveals how focusing on video, leading with text, and keeping messaging short, should be considerations for e-commerce holiday campaigns on Facebook and Instagram.”
