Viewability of in-item video ads
Guaranteed viewability to ad partners
The Moat integration ultimately showcased EX.CO Channels’ 97% viewability of in-item video ads, outperforming Moat’s benchmark by 62%. EX.CO is able to reach such high viewability rates thanks to the engaging nature of EX.CO-powered content. EX.CO now guarantees, and consistently exceeds, 70%+ viewability to all advertiser partners, in line with GroupM’s standards.
One of EX.CO’s top priorities is to assure advertisers that their ads will achieve high viewability across all EX.CO inventory, and that a large percentage of their video ads will be played in-view.
With attention being a scarce resource, we aimed to partner with a well-known third-party measurement software company to prove that highly engaging content garners both higher attention and viewability.
EX.CO partnered with Moat to measure its inventory’s viewability and as a result, was able to parse data across all owned video content and ad units. This included implementing Moat’s pixel on all EX.CO-powered pages in order to fully scan all inventory.
