Ad of the Week: Life, Death and Pre-Roll

We're going to start this blog entry with a heavy dose of honesty. We all hate pre-roll videos. I do. You do. Your grandma does. Besides ingrown hairs and hangnails, I'm relatively certain nothing in life is more annoying than being forced to sit through 15-30 seconds of nonsense, just to watch the two minutes of nonsense my heart was originally set on. And depending on which source you hold true to heart, upwards of 94% of YouTube viewers feel the same, electing to skip pre-roll ads for this very reason.

Insta-advertsing?

One of the most popular photo sharing apps out there is now opening up advertising on its platform. This is due largely to Facebook, which acquired Instagram in April of 2012 for a smooth $1 billion, and also the immense popularity of the app. According to the Pew Research Center, about 1 in 5 Americans have this app on their phone. This is pretty amazing considering it has only been out in the world for just over three years. This could essentially be a huge cash cow not only for Instagram but for advertisers as well, depending on their target…
