Longer mobile video ads convert better

Redwood, CA-based mobile advertising specialists Liftoff have released a report showing that based on data from their customers (mainly mobile app creators) video ads 31-60 seconds long are converting at "up to" 50% higher rates than do shorter video ads.

They theorize that this is happening because longer ads are better able to showcase the features of apps, and better permit ads to tell stories.

Their recommendations for video advertisers are:

  • To save time and money, rather than starting from scratch, stitch together some existing shorter videos.
  • Develop a well-rounded story with a compelling hook and a satisfying conclusion.
  • Use longer ads to show off the features of your app and reach a broader audience.
