AVODs are surging in 2020, with more consumers viewing ad-supported video and billion-dollar growth projected for providers. Even with the struggles of recent months, AVODs have seen accelerated subscriber growth, as viewers look for more ways to save money on entertainment. Meanwhile, time spent streaming video has doubled from where it was a year ago, according to Nielsen. View our webinar on-demand and lear how AVODs can get a competitive edge.

As video consumption habits are evolving and the industry competition is becoming more fierce, now is the time for AVOD providers to ensure they have the tools and data they need to distinguish themselves and emerge as winners in the streaming wars.

In Cynopsis’ webinar, “How AVODs Can Get a Competitive Edge Now,” you’ll learn why it’s critical to invest in the mobile experience; the metrics that matter most to advertisers on AVOD; and the threats and opportunities in the AVOD world. Highlights from illuminating presentations from Dan Hurwitz, CRO of Penthera; Geoff Wolinetz, SVP, Client Relationships at FreeWheel; and Philippe Guelton, EVP, Online Networks, Chicken Soup for the Soul and President, Crackle Plus, include:

  • Best practices for AVOD, including how digital ad environments are different from linear, how content types and creative length affect ad completion, and the effect targeting has on attention
  • CTV attracts committed viewers who are eager to invest a significant amount of time in their preferred content – 76% of visits to a network were at least 30 minutes long, with over half lasting for an hour or longer
  • For AVODs to succeed today, they don’t just need entertaining programing – they must provide viewers with a friction-free viewing experience, and availability on the devices that are convenient to them
  • How downloaded playback video on AVODs can generate incremental ad dollars
  • How extending the edge by downloading the content to the device solves last mile issues, and provides parity with SVODs
