Rich Media Templates for Desktop and Mobile
#1 Sticky Video: Meeting your Viewability Goals
This is a video ad that plays on a web page inside the content. This format allows to minimize a video player and pin it to the corner of the browser window. So, when a user keeps scrolling the page down and the player is out of the viewport, its minimized version keeps following the user and remain visible.
What you Get with .Creatives Sticky Video:
- increasing your video advertising viewability
- creating positive user experience: sticky element has a “close” button that appears immediately (without countdown)
- by default a video sound is off, the user initiates its playback

#2 Scratch Banner Ad: Engaging your Audience
Improved for mobile, and, eventually, available for desktop, this interactive media ad format engages users to participate. Similarly to lottery tickets where you needed to scratch the shiny upper layer with a coin to reveal a win, this banner ad invites a user to “scratch” the top banner digitally. Using a finger for mobile, or a mouse for desktop, a user “scratches” the banner and reveals the image beneath.
What you Get with .Creatives Scratch Banner Ad:
- perfect for special offers, deals, discounts
- brings interactivity, provoking a user to participate
- entertaining lottery component
