Working with Metrixlab, Facebook commissioned a study of some 759 video ads from 300+ brands, across nine verticals, and distributed across 25 countries. The researchers surveyed video viewers to get their responses on brand recall, then collated them relative to each approach.
The core of their findings was this:
“We discovered that ads created for mobile first stand out on Facebook and Instagram, and perform better across a range of different metrics.”
The first area they looked at was brand recall, separating the video approaches into three distinct categories.
