World Cup Increases Branded Video Viewership by 16 Percent in Q2 2014

Visible Measures, the engagement platform for branded content, today announced the release of its Q2 2014 Branded Video Report which revealed that audiences watched branded video more than 2.8 billion times, resulting in the highest single quarter of viewership that the company has recorded.

These record-breaking numbers are predominantly a product of high viewership surrounding World Cup campaigns. Additional viewership numbers came from Dove’s popular “Patches” campaign in April.

Overall, branded video viewership increased by 16 percent over Q1 2014, when the Super Bowl, Winter Olympics, and NCAA Tournament took place. Nearly 555 million views in Q2 were the result of campaigns created for the World Cup, which accounts for 19 percent of the quarter’s total views. As a result of these campaigns, views grew by more than 50 percent over Q2 of last year.

“This quarter, we saw the top campaign reach more than 100 million views, making it one of only 18 campaigns to ever surpass that milestone,” said Brian Shin, CEO and Founder of Visible Measures. “The growing viewership of branded campaigns is a testament to the importance of video as a tool for marketers to engage consumers.”
