As more than 50% of YouTube views are from mobile, they created a custom strategy just for their mobile marketing by understanding the video duration patterns generated through insights.

Also, by understanding the apt video content duration insights, they were able to curate content that’s more effective for TrueView skippable ads complemented by snappy 6-second bumpers, which deliver a less intrusive tease or echo message to mobile-first consumers.
