Video Has The Highest Engagement Rate Of All Content!

One of the biggest trends we noticed in 2016 and pushing forward into 2017 is the use and engagement of video in business marketing. Video marketing has become the most effective way to get your brand and marketing message in front of your targeted audience! As we’re working with clients to create their online presence, one of the first things we ask them is if they currently have any video marketing assets and if not, we discuss how and where to get them.

In this age of instant gratification, sometimes even reading good sales copy seems too time consuming and cumbersome… THIS is why video has been so effective! With the click of a button, your “sales pitch” is flowing at your potential customers while the video imagery mentally frames every emotion you are trying to convey.

We listed some statistics below that will show you the power of using video in your businesses marketing efforts. There are some interesting trends in the data that you can create some actionable steps to help promote your business. You can have the best product or service in the world, but if nobody knows about it, it doesn’t do you or them any good.
