ALEXANDER STREET PRESS: HOW SHALL WE REPORT ROI ON VIDEO? CAN WE?

Presentation Slides

Presented on June 16, 2015 by , Vice President, Editorial and Licensing

Return-on-Investment (ROI) is a term popularized in board rooms and managerial accounting courses. ROI assumes, at its most basic level, that there is a clear measure of return for each dollar invested. In the case of video usage, ROI assumes you can capture the relationship between dollars spent and value derived. But the measure of value most of us are relaying on-number of views-is inherently flawed or, at minimum, incomplete as it does not capture the impact of a view (i.e. power to influence a viewer) nor does it capture the number of eyeballs for a particular view. David Parker will expand on these points during his presentation.
