The Attention Paywall: How Six Second Video Ads Can Increase Mobile Revenue

Publishers are at a major disadvantage when trying to access video advertising budgets. Small-to-medium sized publisher do not have the resources to produce video at scale.

As a result Google and Facebook own most of the video advertising spend in Europe. YouTube in particular has a disproportionate share of the video ad market: it is estimated that YouTube captured $4 billion of video ad spend in 2017.

Publishers with premium-based text content are missing out. How can they claim a share of this growing segment of digital advertising?

Taking the best elements of the YouTube bumper ad (6 six second ad) and fusing it with a user-first experience, UnveilMedia created the video paywall.

The premise is simple: create a value of exchange of attention for access to the best content on the web.

For text-based publisher, it is a seamless way to access video ad budget at scale – and increase revenue on mobile traffic.

What are the key features of the video paywall?

– The publisher gets access to video ad budget
