About this speaker

Shoppable video: does it work, do people want it and who will be the winners


Connected screens make video clickable. This enables the reinvention of the advert – should consumers wish to be marketed to in this way.

Content shown on social media sites can be used to inform buyers. If they like it, they can buy it, with a single upward swipe. On smartphones and tablets, augmented reality filters enable a growing range of products, such lipsticks and hats, to be placed on viewers, so they can try before they buy.


Shoppable video has long been a nirvana – is it finally here?
