Motion Advertising Statistics for Facebook

Motion advertising does much to capture user attention and keep them engaged for extended periods due to the advertisement-in-action component. In fact, Facebook ads that utilize motion perform better than static imagery ads.

What’s more, when databox surveyed 26 marketers about their experience with the two Facebook ad formats, nearly 60% reported that video advertisements drove more ad clicks than image advertisements. Compared to static image campaigns, the same report shares that video-based campaigns lead to twice as many link clicks, 20-30% more conversions, and 2-3x higher CTRs for several businesses.

"One of the simplest, but most powerful tools to capture mobile viewers' attention is motion. In fact, research shows that ads that contain lightweight motion outperform ads that use still images alone 75% of the time."
