Understand, finally, why your creative performs (or not).

The decision to invest in video production has always been a tough one. In today’s economic climate, it’s more crucial than ever to carefully consider this investment.

Although Creative is the primary factor of an ad campaign success, creative analytics have been overlooked until now.

VideoRunRun helps brands find the perfect match between their video creatives and their audiences at every stage of the buyer’s journey, prompting them to take direct action.

VideoRunRun’s technology enables marketers to streamline the creative process by facilitating data-driven development and iteration. Through regular testing, analysis, and modification, shorter creative cycles result in more effective campaigns.

3 French brands Luxeol (cosmetics), Okaidi (fashion industry) and La Croix (newspaper industry) have successfully experienced the journey.

Let’s dive in.

Easily Create different versions of your video ads

Thanks to techno, choosing the right creative to start with, has never been easier.

All starts inside VideoRunRun’s Creative Gallery, your brand’s online library. It allows users to centralize, view and organize all video assets from a single user-friendly interface.

Videos are composed of different ingredients, script, emotions, creative concept, audio… and sequences of intro/hook, problem/solution, social proof… that create the story arc.

VideoRunRun’s Creative Insights feature differentiates and isolates all ingredients and sequences of a video – this allows the analysis of their unique impact through the campaign.

And from one initial video, you can create several versions, switching ingredients and sequences.

French newspaper La Croix tested 16 video variations that turned into an evergreen YouTube campaign running since September 2022. Over the 7 month period, clicks to website went up by +440% thanks to Creative Analytics and iterations on the go.

VideoRunRun Creative Analytics identified the most effective concept, product, and video elements, allowing the brand to optimize creatives and achieve a 5 X CTR. It also enabled the marketing team to develop 10 new videos powered by data driven creative insights.
