Online video advertising

Be sure to be seen by taking advantage of online video advertising. With “pre-roll” advertising positions available on all World Company sites, your business can insert a short message that will be played ahead of a featured video. Choose either an animated or video format. Use footage from an existing spot, or have something created exclusively for online. Each pre-roll ad spot is played alongside a companion display ad which maximizes the visibility of your message.
