VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SoMedia Networks (TSX-V:VID), the pioneer of scalable video production solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of its new full service video ad production platform, SoMedia Ads. (http://advertising.somedia.net).
SoMedia Ads is the first platform of its kind to enable the ordering of affordable custom video ads produced anywhere in North America in unlimited volume. Developed for the requirements of Google Partners, who are agencies and online marketing companies that may be managing multiple client projects at the same time, the platform makes ordering, managing and deploying original video ads for YouTube simple and convenient.
"SoMedia is committed to enabling the expansion of video advertising on online video content hubs, social networks and video ad networks to small and medium sized businesses," stated George Fleming, Founder and Co-CEO of SoMedia. "Video advertising today is dominated by large national advertisers that have large budgets but represent a small portion of the total potential video advertising market. SoMedia Ads makes the compelling ROI of video advertising accessible to millions of new advertisers through its affordable, simple, full service video production solutions."
According to the recently published Advertising Expenditure Forecasts by ZenithOptimedia online video is the fastest-growing advertising category with 34% growth in 2014 to $10.9 Billion US, forecasted to grow at an average of 29% a year to reach $23.3 Billion US in US 2017.
Google Partners primarily service small to medium business advertisers across North America who are already running pay per click and banner ad campaigns but have yet to utilize video ads due to the lack of a reliable cost-effective solution for producing ad content. SoMedia is offering incentives to Google Partners in addition to incentives being offered directly by Google to encourage the creation of YouTube video ads for their clients.
SoMedia Ads offers affordable custom video ad production in several formats and styles, which can be shot on location anywhere in North America, with guaranteed fourteen day turnaround. The SoMedia Ads platform also provides the ability to order multiple variations of a single video ad enabling advertisers to order localized versions of ads for multiple locations, customize ads with seasonal offers or test ads with different targeted calls to action. Video ads produced by SoMedia can be published to a client’s YouTube channel directly from the SoMedia dashboard.
