Statistics on Video Ad Engagement
A recent survey of 1,000 buyers in the United Kingdom by Groundbreak Productions discovered that 20% of Millennials will more likely purchase a product after watching a video advertisement. That surpasses 45-54 year olds (12%), 55-64 year olds (13%) or people over the age of 65 (6%).
