Click-to-Video Advertising


Feedsee Advertising : Click-to-Video Advertising : Multinational viral word-of-mouth mobile ad platform

In 2007, mywaves and AdMob partnered to enable click-to-video advertisements for AdMob advertisers. mywaves embedded video player delivery capability enabled video playback for the ads in over 160 countries. Mobile web browsers had the option to watch a video from a landing page when they clicked on an advertisement via AdMob. If viewers liked what they saw in the mywaves mobile video player, they could save the video to their phones or pass it on to friends via MMS -- making it possible for the first time to extend a mobile video ad campaign through viral, word-of-mouth activity. Click-to-video ads were launched that summer as part of the AdMob Marketplace's landing page solution. The tools combine the reach of the AdMob mobile advertising marketplace with the cross-carrier mobile video capabilities that have made mywaves the top mobile media company. AdMob advertisers could tap into the mywaves mobile video platform as an option on AdMob-hosted landing pages.
