Pre-Roll Plus

A super effective Pre-Roll that incorporates a highly engaging call to action (CTA). The dynamic CTA is great for driving increased awareness of the advertiser's goal, as well as driving clicks. The CTA appears shortly after the video starts and runs for its duration.

Options include adding an animated bug and/or end card to the Pre-Roll, as well as many interactive features.

Work with your Creative and Account Managers to determine which options work best for your media goals and creative assets.


Viewer Experience

  • A :15 or :30 Pre-Roll video begins play.
  • After a short period of time, a "bug" appears over the pre-roll.
  • The bug may contain one interactive feature and one click-out.
  • The format does not include an engagement slate.

Execution Timeline

  • Allow one week for execution, from delivery of assets
  • Creative calls with client are recommended
  • 4-day timeline for creative build
  • Any major creative change during the campaign flight requires an additional 3-4 day build time
