Master Video Marketing
Video marketing is an efficient and easy way of connecting with consumers.
Social media consumption is growing at breakneck speed, and consumers are increasingly demanding engaging easily-digestible content. These two forces have combined to form the next evolution of storytelling: video.
The last twelve months have seen video transform from an optional marketing tactic into a core business strategy.
For marketers, this means to reach your target audience and drive real business results, video now needs to be your top priority.
Videos continue to surpass all other forms of media when it comes to grabbing and keeping consumers’ limited attention. On YouTube, which has over one billion users, people watch 500 million hours of video every day. What’s more, a Facebook executive recently predicted that their platform will be all video in less than five years. Apart from sheer volume, studies show that videos get more engagement than other types of posts, and video ads are two times more memorable than photos.
Needless to say, the ubiquity of video can no longer be ignored. To capitalize on this paradigm shift in consumption behaviors and expectations, brands are being challenged to look beyond traditional 30-second TV spots and create compelling digital video content.
The popularity of video continues to grow. It is more than just a trend in content marketing; consumers demand it. If you don’t act now and bring video into the heart of your strategy, you’ll likely get left behind and here’s why…
- 90% of consumers indicate product videos directly inform purchase decisions. 52% say watching a video makes them more confident in online purchasing decisions.
- 95% of consumers retain information communicated via video, while only 10% retain information from reading.
- Video offers the best return on investment. 72% of businesses say the video has improved their conversion rates.

Gone are the days when creating video meant large TV ads with huge production costs, afforded by the big brands only. Today’s consumer wants an opportunity to connect with you, to see if you are authentic. Polished production is no longer necessary.
