Top Mobile Video Ad Networks (2020)

Updated: July 28, 2021

This section is dedicated to mobile advertising networks that support the video ad format. Currently, video ads are the most effective type of digital advertising there is — this is especially true with mobile advertising.

Thanks to giant video content platforms such as YouTube — with its 1.5 billion monthly active users — and Facebook — with 500 million people watching videos daily — video advertising has become mainstream; 60% of marketers used video ads in 2016, and this number keeps going up.

Video Ads Benefits

Mobile video advertising is a popular and growing area in advertising which publishers use for monetization. This ad format and its placement options include pre-roll, mid-roll and post-roll.

There’s little doubt that video advertising is the future. Just adding a video ad on a product page, for example, can drastically boost the chances of a sale — this is true on both mobile and desktop devices. The other advantage that comes included with this is that users more often than not like to share videos, increasing an advertiser’s level of exposure with each share.

Video ads are uniquely able to convey a lot of useful information in a relatively short period. Whether the advertiser is showcasing a product or just increasing brand awareness, they’re a very effective way of getting the message across. Video ads are often trackable, as sites like YouTube and Facebook provide a detailed breakdown of the data so advertisers can, in turn, shape their brand. Understanding how many times a video has been shared, where, and how many times it has been liked only improves an advertiser’s chances of reaching their audience.

Other benefits include:

  • Videos help you to climb the Google ranks.
  • This form of advertising can motivate even the most hesitant customer.
  • Most advertisers, on both mobile and desktop, are satisfied with the results of a video campaign.
  • A wealth of mobile targeting options include geo, contextual and behavioural.
