The Features of Video Interaction Format on the BYYD Platform

The video interaction format has increasingly become a pivotal component within brands’ marketing strategies, playing a crucial role in engaging audiences. Let’s delve deeper into this format, exploring its advantages and distinctive features.

What is the Video Interaction format?

Interactive video advertising is a unique synthesis of popular formats: Rich Media and video or Fullscreen and video.

The creation of such videos has become possible thanks to the BYYD platform, which is constantly researching and introducing new marketing tools.

But first let’s look at the features of Fullscreen banners, Rich Media banners and video format separately.

Video Interaction is
  • Fullscreen Format

Banner advertising is one of the most durable and widespread formats in the advertising world. It is guaranteed to provide a large audience reach with minimal user contact costs.

Our banner set includes 6 varieties of banners and 6 full-screen variants. It is this number of creatives that ensures significant audience reach.

You can check out  the successful case studies on our website.

Fullscreen Format
  • Rich Media Format

Rich Media refers to banners that utilize the following multimedia elements to convey information:

  • Animation
  • Video
  • Audio
  • Links

All of these components are used to capture the user’s attention. The primary goal of this format is to engage the user with the content and encourage interaction with the advertising creative.

Within this format, various mechanics exist. For instance, there’s the “wiping” mechanic, where users remove elements from the screen to access information. There’s also the “countdown” mechanic that prompts users to take action within a specific time frame.

Learn about all the features of the format and see examples of Rich Media banners on our website.
