How many videos have you watched today? Probably a handful (at the very least).
Today, it feels like videos are everywhere. From Netflix to Snapchat, we have countless opportunities to watch and create videos — so it’s no surprise that video is one of the most powerful marketing tools available.
1. Video WORKS.
It’s that simple. 52% of marketing professionals worldwide name video as the type of content with the best ROI — which means there’s really nothing better. And it’s not just a B2C thing, either: 73% of B2B marketing professionals say that video has positively impacted marketing results.
2. Video is now a must-have, not a ‘nice-to-have.’
3. Video outperforms other types of content on social media.
The difference is huge. Social video generates 1200% more shares than text and images combined. On top of that, these shares actually mean something: 61% of consumers are more likely to watch company-produced videos that friends have shared.
4. Millennials want video.
Shocking, right? Just kidding. Although not as bad as Generation Z (who literally grew up with a smartphone in hand), Millennials have notoriously high expectations when it comes to technology. 80% of Millennials consider video content when researching a purchase decision, and 7 out of 10 Millennials are likely to watch a company video when shopping online. Remember: This consumer demographic has high spending power, so don’t rule them out!
