Tips & Tricks – New Data: The Halo Effects of Video Viewability

By anyclip February 7, 2020

We all know the benefits of lifting viewability for your site (higher completion rates, CPMs and demand — oh my!). But achieving the coveted 70%-or-better average viewability threshold can be difficult.  

Floating players can help boost viewability, a topic we’ve explored in previous editions of The Feed. But just how much more value can a floating player’s viewable inventory add? A lot, according to new data released by AnyClip this month.

In a recent analysis of 24 publishers simultaneously using both highly-viewable, floating players and lower viewability, below-the-fold players from AnyClip’s Luminous Platform, floating players’ viewability lift had dramatic halo effects on average publisher performance:

+31% lift in programmatic CPM

296% Lift in Programmatic Fill Rate

Thanks to the rising popularity of pre-bid viewability tools, which help advertisers to evaluate and opt-out of programmatic auctions when low viewability is detected, the demand for quality, high-viewability video inventory has never been higher.  

Don’t let low viewability drag your video business down. Float!
