This Way Up: the Effectiveness of Mobile Vertical Video Marketing

In a large-scale field study and two experimental studies, we investigate mobile vertical video marketing effectiveness. We show that vertical (vs. horizontal) video advertisements increase consumer interest, engagement, and processing fluency, because watching mobile vertical video advertisements takes less effort. We further demonstrate a moderating effect of mobile users’ age.
