With the fast advancement in technology and thereby the constant birth of new (e.g., TikTok, Facebook Watch, WeChat) media platforms along with conventional (e.g., YouTube) media, marketing via video advertising has taken up a major portion in marketing and is growing strong. According to IAB (Interactive Advertising Bureau, 2019), marketers have increased digital video budgets by 25% since 2018 across all product and service categories, with much higher increases in Media/Entertainment (+75%) and Fashion/Apparel (+45%) industries. This in fact reflects the growth in digital video consumption and engagement by online content users. For example, a one third of people of the Internet users (+1 million) are YouTube users; and social videos generate 12 times more shares than text and images combined, according to Renderforest (2018). IAB (2019) reports 78% of U.S. digital video viewers are willing to watch video advertising in exchange for content.

As interactive video technologies continue to evolve, newer platforms utilizing 5K video technology, 5G mobile technology, connected TV and OTT, personalized video experiences via artificial intelligence (AI), and mixed reality (MR) are expected to grow constantly. It is undoubtedly that research related to interactive advertising focusing on video experience is needed given the growth of this wave of trends. Though a great deal of research on traditional video platforms are available, how the use of these new technologies is going to influence the effects of interactive advertising is less known in spite of its critical importance. Inquiries such as how marketers use interactive video advertising to connect with their consumers, how interactive video advertising has changed and impacted consumer behavior, which theories explain the current phenomena of interactive video advertising well, and what kind of methods are well suited for the research of interactive video advertising need to be considered to advance the field. This special section seeks to answer these questions with academic research to generate useful and actionable insights.

  • Short video advertising (e.g., bumper ads)
  • Ad engagement in interactive advertising context
  • Social video platforms in the context of video advertising (e.g., YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, WeChat, TikTok, and social TVs)

  • Video influencers (e.g., vloggers)
