The revealit way
With 40% of the $30B video ad spend allocated to fraud, at revealit we calculate the potential value of the shoppable video market today as approximately $12B dollars. We believe a shoppable video solution that combines great content, contemporary technology and that is viewer-centric can unlock that wasted value and address the lessons we have failed to learn from the decline of Broadcast TV.
We also strongly believe viewer centricity is the primary critical issue and “getting advertising from less push to more pull” is just a good start. Building the revealit shoppable video platform over the last two years we did so with the following researched convictions about what it means to be viewer centric:
- 1. Viewers must never be interrupted
- 2. Viewers always get to shop what they see in-frame.
- 3. Viewers expect shopping to be entertainment, education and engagement.
- 4. Viewers demand zero friction while shopping
5. Viewers should be rewarded for their attention.
It is inevitable all video experiences in the future will be shoppable, interactive and viewer-centric because doing so delivers fully qualified buyers to advertisers. But it’s more than that:
The process of moving from more pull and less push involves a higher integrity, higher value, and more transparent bargain between viewers and advertisers.What brand, agency or viewer does not want that?
