Where does the problem lie?

The 21st century is the era of digitalization. Our world lies at the center of the global information spread where social media and digital tools are the main sources of our virtual word of mouth. The pipeline strategy of Digital Marketers, Publishers, and Advertisers is to gauge how well they can use the aspects of social media and digital tools to their benefits. But the streaming of advertisements and the procurement of revenue is always tough in the first quarter of every year, especially what we’ve seen from our publisher’s experiences. Keeping these challenges in mind, VDO.AI has come up with an innovative solution for all stakeholders, especially the publishers: the Native Ad Stories unit. This not really helps in displaying 15 sec of video ads spanning over 5 subsects, but also helps in recirculating the existing website content to the visitors.

Remedy to the publishers’ dilemma

The dip in revenues especially in Q1 has always been a problem to many publishers experiencing fewer page views, lower user rate, and lower user engagement. VDO.AI has come up with a unique and innovative technology with its new solution to recirculate content in the most interactive way using the Stories Unit.

The stories unit by VDO.AI follows the same framework of the story status you view on your social media accounts like Instagram. However what makes it stand out is the motive behind this innovation- the unit lets the viewer see five different contextual video ads in an interval of 10-15 secs, making the user engage even more. Apart from this, as per the publisher’s requirement, the same stories unit can take a form of a ‘Recirculation Unit’ where the existing content reaches the prospective reader in the shortest and more interactive form. This makes the user session rate higher than usual.

So, publishers, gone are the days when you’d see the lowest dip in January and February. Click here to check out our stories unit.
