To advertise on the devices one attaches short digital media to videos which will be viewed every time the video is watched. Most of the over the top streaming service providers provide users with free content and revenue is got from advertisers. Unlike traditional adverts which would only appear after a set time these adverts do not depend on time slots. It is also easier to target the market based on various factors such as age, gender and geographic locations. To target an audience the advertiser attaches the advert on specific videos that are preferred by that specific group. For products meant for people from a certain place, the most preferred content by people in that place is used to carry the adverts.

Service providers get a wide range of potential customers for their services from the many people using the online platforms.
Unlike the traditional means, one can keep track of the progress of their advertising campaigns much more accurately. The businesses can get a report on the campaign such as the number of users who viewed their advert. Using the reports a business makes changes for best results by using the most popular videos to advertise content.

It is possible to have the advert viewed over and over when a user watches the video for several times since of is also replayed.
